The Godfather, Minimized

The Godfather, Minimized

Reimagined movie posters always pique my interest – especially when they’re done well like these minimalist movie posters by DopePrints. This Godfather print caught my attention initially, for obvious reasons – nothing like a clean cross section of animal neck! – but, Jay Quann also has similar posters for other classic movies like Goodfellas, Casino,(…)

Netflix Fix: Mona Lisa

Netflix Fix: Mona Lisa

It’s always exciting when something from the Criterion Collection is available to stream on Netflix and Mona Lisa is one of the chosen few – probably because the DVD is out of print! If you’re a fan of Taxi Driver, British gangster films or ’80s fashion – I highly recommend using your bandwidth on streaming(…)

Mamet + Pacino + Mirren = HBO’s Phil Spector

Mamet + Pacino + Mirren = HBO’s Phil Spector

Ladies and gentlemen, clear your plans or set your DVRs for March 24th for the premiere of HBO Films’ Phil Spector.

Les MiserabLULZ! Part Deux: Les Mean Girls

Les MiserabLULZ! Part Deux: Les Mean Girls

I could try to stop posting about Les Miserables, but why go against the forces of nature? This one will be quick, I promise. So previously in Les MiserabLULZ, I presented several options to laugh out loud at something that is traditionally not laugh out loud-able, Les Miserables. Now I must thank the creator of(…)

Girl Crush: Broadway Goddess Ann Reinking

Girl Crush: Broadway Goddess Ann Reinking

As a child, I basically thought that Grace Farrell was the most beautiful and amazing woman ever to live. Through the years, I’ve grown to learn that Ann Reinking was more than just the trusted advisor/love interest of Daddy Warbucks. Reinking was a musical theater force to be reckoned with – dancing and singing her(…)

Feast Your Eyes On…Eddie Redmayne

Feast Your Eyes On…Eddie Redmayne

Eddie Redmayne looks like what a Wild Beasts song sounds like and as it turns out, Wild Beasts songs sound like total babes. Eddie Redmanye also has the kind of looks that some people think are “weird,” but for me (and PLENTY of other people, trust), that’s what makes him so intriguing. He first caught(…)

Advanced Style: The Documentary!

Advanced Style: The Documentary!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything about my love for Ari Seth Cohen’s amazing blog, Advanced Style, and I was fucking THRILLED to see that the documentary he’s been working on for the last few years is reaching the near stages of being completed! I cannot wait to watch those confident, beautiful, fashionable(…)

March Can’t Come Soon Enough: Spring Breakers + The Place Beyond The Pines

March Can’t Come Soon Enough: Spring Breakers + The Place Beyond The Pines

Fake tattoos? Check. Low-level crime? Check. Guns blazing (both literally and figuratively)? Check. Semi-desperate down-on-their-luck characters? Check. Franco vs. Gosling, head to head on opening day? Check. I mean, what more can I sayyyyyyaaaayyyyyy? Ok I’ll actually say it: I am sort of dying for both of these movies to come out so I can(…)

Etsy Finds: LUNCCHB0XX

Etsy Finds: LUNCCHB0XX

I’m kind of in love with Etsy store LUNCCHB0XX and its devilishly funny, stylish and typography-driven shirts. In fact, the Tyra Mail tee actually made me LOL. Thomas Roche, the shop’s owner, has clear love for a lot of things I also have love for – Mean Girls, Burritos, Pizza, Satan…you know, the yoozh. He(…)
