City of Boners: Shame Watching at it’s Best

City of Boners: Shame Watching at it’s Best

A few years ago, I read The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare with a bunch of friends for YA Book Club.  When we got together to discuss it, I had actually printed out two pages worth of hatred for the book…the characters were derivative, at best, the ending of the book was(…)

Netflix Fix: I’m Still Here, Joaquin Phoenix Lulz

Ahhhhhh, I’m Still Here. The mockumentary (or hoax, depending who you ask) which managed to turn this beautiful man… …into this busted, un-doable, presumably foul-smelling man… …all for the sake of art and lulz. I’m Still Here, which was created by Phoenix and his brother-in-law Casey Affleck set out to examine the relationship between celebrities(…)

Must See Frances Ha Immediately

Must See Frances Ha Immediately

The day has arrived – Frances Ha is out in theaters! I’ve been super excited about this film for a while – mostly because it involves the charming Greta Gerwig who co-wrote the screenplay with Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale, Greenberg).

Kinda Want This Spring Breakers Beach Towel

Kinda Want This Spring Breakers Beach Towel

There are many things I’d like to say to you about Spring Breakers. Like my favorite scenes: #1 James Franco fellating the gun(s),  #2 the final scene which I won’t spoil for you if you haven’t seen it, #3 the Britney Spears piano montage. Also notable: the fact that for the first time in my(…)
