Movie Review: ‘Detropia’

After I did a bit of running around yesterday, I met up with my friend Josh Rosebrook for a dinner date so that we could catch up with one another. After we supped on some delicious sushi, I made my way to the newly renovated and re-opened Sundance Cinemas Theatre at Sunset 5 to see the documentary film Detropia. Back in July, Shannon wrote a post about this film and for some strange reason, LA is one of the last markets the film has opened in. The film opened here in LA this past weekend and last night was my first chance to see it so … I went. It is a haunting, painful and very important film … one that I am very glad I was able to see.

‘Hitchcock’ Releases A First Movie Poster

Over the weekend we got to see a couple of really fantastic photos of Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel in character as Janet Leigh and Vera Miles (respectively) in the forthcoming biopic film Hitchcock (which, as you may know, stars Sir Anthony Hopkins in the lead role as Alfred Hitchcock). Today we get to see the just released first movie poster for the film. As you can see below, Hopkins, Johansson and Biel are all featured on the poster alongside fellow co-star Helen Mirren — who plays Hitchcock‘s wife Alma. Check it out below. More »

First Look: Chanel No. 5 Releases A Boring Teaser Video Featuring Brad Pitt

Where ... is the tease?

Back in May we learned that actor Brad Pitt was named as the new celebrity spokesmodel for the classic women’s perfume Chanel No. 5. Today we get our first look at a just-released teaser video that introduces Brad as the new Chanel spokesmodel. Now, to be fair, the clip is just a teaser meant to hype up a (hopefully) more significant promo on October 15th … but this first clip is a total snoozefest. The whole thing is only 7 seconds long so … take a look, see what you think. Are you sufficiently teased?

PITNB Relives And Re-Lurves Some Of The Greatest Superhero Man Candy Ever

Okay y’all. It’s time to look at some hot guys who save the world AKA Superhero Man Candy. What’s the special occasion, you ask? First of all, we should never, ever need a special occasion to look at hot guys who save the world. But in this case, we are a bit inspired by the upcoming series premiere of the CW‘s new show Arrow (based on the DC Comics hero Green Arrow). Arrow stars Stephen Amell and Stephen Amell plays a hot guy who saves the world/Starling City. Amell (as Oliver Queen/Arrow) is lit’rally the definition of Superhero Man Candy. But thank goodness he’s not alone; Christian Bale as The Dark Knight, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, and Chris Evans as Captain America are all in the Superhero Man Candy club too (yes, there’s a club). But when I think of Superheroes (and man candy), I also can’t help but think of David Boreanaz as Angel and Will Smith as the hot (and totally ripped for no reason) scientist Robert Neville in I Am Legend, so I had to include those guys as well, even if they don’t fit the exact description of superhero. They’re hot guys who’ve saved the world, and they deserve their props! Peep the gallery for more Superhero Man Candy than you will ever be able to handle in one sitting! And click inside for the new, extended trailer for the upcoming season of Arrow.

Justin Bieber Enjoys Beer Pong

A previously unseen photo of underage popstar Justin Bieber has made its way to the Internets that shows the young man present during a game of beer pong. Now, it’s important to make clear that in the photo, The Biebs is not seen playing the game but he is standing next to the game table, next to a set of red cups that presumably contain beer. Naughty Naughty. To be fair, I’d say 99.9% of beer pong games are played by underage kids so this isn’t really shocking news … except for the fact that JB is famous (and therefore, a “role model” for impressionable children even younger than he is). Click below to see Justin Bieber caught in the act. More »

First Listen: Taylor Swift Releases Her New Single ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’

Here Comes 'Trouble'

Taylor Swift has released the second single from her new album Red and today we get to hear that new track in full. I Knew You Were Trouble is Taylor‘s latest offering and it gives us a first taste of her new sound. As you can hear above, Taylor is experimenting with Dub Step in this very pop-rocky song. As you may know, Swift has enjoyed huge popularity as a Country music performer but it sounds like she is deffo going the more mainstream route on her new record. Dub Step … I mean. Take a listen, see what you think. Do you like?

Britney Spears Films A ‘Top Secret’ Video In A Secret Location

Britney Spears is sharing a mysterious new photo that was taken on the set of what she calls a “top secret” video that will debut soon on VEVO. As you can see in the full size image below, Britney is seated and appears to be facing a camera as if she were giving an interview … or something like that. Because she specified that the video is for VEVO, I do not expect this “top secret” whatever-it-is to have anything to do with The X Factor … at least, I don’t think. Click below to see the image and help me speculate what the heck might be going on. More »

When Jersey Shore star Nicole Snooki Polizzi gave birth to her first child earlier this year, many people doubted that she would be mother material. Only known for her ridiculous and hard-partying ways, Snooki cultivated a reputation that easily made people doubt that she would be a good mother. In the weeks since her son Lorenzo Dominic was born, Snooki has been sharing a lot of really cute photos of the little dude … but that alone does not a good mother make. This weekend, she actually did prove that she might be ready for motherhood choosing to stay home and care for her newborn over going out to party with her reality TV castmates at the Jersey Shore season 4 premiere party.
