    No, we're not sorry.

    Were you thinking about going to see GOTG again this weekend? Well, still do that; but first, watch this rendition of the film starring cats instead of people. It's exactly as adorable as you think it is. Also, the Rocket Raccoon cat is named "Bradley Pooper."

  3. Unsurprising News That Still Sucks: Hollywood Has Some Homophobia Problems

    Sometimes, people are the worst.

    A new study surveying 5,700 SAG-AFTRA members has shed light on some of the less-savory aspects of the Hollywood machine that LGBT performers face every day.
