So, at last, like scores of people here in the US and around the world, I was finally able to see the final installment of the Christopher Nolan Batman Trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, and it is with great pleasure that I can tell you that I loved the movie entirely. Altho there were some minor problems, I’d say that Nolan and his cast of actors did a fine job bringing to a close this series of Batman films. I will do my best to review the film without providing any spoilers that might ruin the movie-going experience for any of you. Click below to see what I think about The Dark Knight Rises. More »
Whew, I have had a very long night. I was among the throngs of people who attended midnight screenings of The Dark Knight Rises last night/this morning and I am currently operating on just a couple hours of sleep. I’ll post my review of the film a little later on as I still need some time to process the film. I will say right now that I really enjoyed The Dark Knight Rises and I think many of you will enjoy it as well. Obviously, many of us — me included — are affected by the tragedy that took place in Colorado last night/this morning but I urge you to do your best and enjoy your weekend plans as much as possible.

As I feared, the news out of Aurora, CO — where 12 people were killed and 59 others were injured in a mass shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises last night/this morning — continues to get worse and scarier. The gunman, James Holmes, armed himself with 4 weapons and numerous gas and/or explosive devices for his siege on the movie theater but FBI agents are now revealing that the gunman’s home is filled with more explosives. Apparently, his apartment has been booby-trapped and it could take some time for the area to be secured. Wow. More »
I was so pumped to see that Ms. LDR had a new video! And then I was a little disheartened to see that it looked an awful lot like her last couple of videos. You know what I mean. Vintage, instagrammy and totally beautiful… if we hadn’t seen so much of it from her already. But still! It’s Lana Del Rey and I love seeing her through just about any lens, so I’ll take it. Plus actress/model Jaime King co-stars, playing her lesbian lover in this tragic tale of summertime sadness. Check out the video inside!
Here’s some very happy news to cheer up your day … according to a new report, Sarah Michelle Gellar and husband Freddie Prince, Jr. are reportedly expecting the birth of a baby boy! As you may recall, we learned back in April that SMG is pregs with her second child and today we are hearing that the bun she is baking in her oven is going to be a boy! The SMG and FPJ already have a daughter, Charlotte Grace, so a baby boy would round out their growing family perfectly. More »
First off, yes. JoJo is still making music! And thanks to PITNBr Miguel I get to share some of it with you (shouts-out, Miguel). The singer (well-known for that time she kinda kiiillled Drake with her rendition of Marvin’s Room) recently debuted the new single Demonstrate, which is off of an album now somewhere in sight, titled Jumping Trains. The song is about all of the yummy, naughty things you can’t really talk about doing… always better to demonstrate. Some serious for-real R&B music is going down inside!

What could have been an exciting weekend for the summer’s most-anticipated movie has taken a tragic turn. As many of you already know (and as Trent reported here), a gunman killed 12 people and injured 38 more at a midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado. In light of the horrific events Warner Bros. has decided to cancel the film’s red carpet premiere in Paris today, pulling directors and actors from media interviews as well. Details inside.
So, this is awesome news! In an interview with Carson Daly, P!nk opened up about her personal and professional life, revealing interesting and intimate details about her baby girl and her upcoming album. When I got to the part about Lily Allen, I kind of lost it for a minute. I can’t even imagine what the two of them would come up with in a studio, but I guarantee it’s gonna be fun. Two cheeky, crazy talented new Moms known for inducing good times via good music and a healthy dose of bad ass quasi-bitchery? Yes, please.
Ya’ll will have to excuse my behavior for the day; there may be very few non-movie-related stories from my end. I’ve just seen (ahem) The Dark Knight Rises and can think of nothing better than a day filled with movie news. Movie clips, movie trailers, movies that make me think about the relationship between capitalism and freedom as we understand it in our society… what? Yeah. More very good movies please! And The Bourne Legacy might fall into that category, although the studios were probably right to push their premiere date back. Releasing the film a week after the madness that will be The Dark Knight Rises is a much better look, methinks. Still, we have something to get excited about with Jeremy Renner, who certainly has the chops to carry on but also redefine the Bourne series. Check out two new clips inside!
