It’s October 28th already, and you don’t have a Halloween costume. But worry not, because we’ve got your back.
What's with the name?

At least I think it’s the first. Either way, I’m excited to finally see Quvenzhané Wallis done up in her Annie costume along with Jamie Foxx (who we just saw in the first Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer earlier today), Cameron Diaz and Rose Byrne.READ MORE

Ahhhh, December. The carols. The smell of Christmas trees. The “movies of 2013″ supercuts that everyone and their mother starts putting out. It’s a good month for fans of montage. This one, by The Sleepy Skunk, is specifically a mashup of the year’s trailers. NSFW for one instance of foul language (thanks, Kick-Ass 2).READ MORE

I have a confession to make: I didn’t watch Stargate until around 16 hours ago. Maybe if I’d spent less of my childhood summers watching Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory and Clue on VHS, rewinding them, and watching them again right away, I wouldn’t have missed out on James Spader The Adorable Floppy-Haired Scientist And His Adventures In Outer-Space Egypt (Featuring Holy Crap Is That Djimon Hounsou?). Alas, I was behind the times on that one. But I have watched it now! And just in time for director Roland Emmerich to announce his plans to it as a movie trilogy.READ MORE

The stunt coordinator for Buffy the Vampire Slayer must have found a box of VHS tapes in his closet, because he just released 30 minutes worth of new behind the scenes footage! Check out James Marsters getting a haircut, David Boreanz learning his throws, Sarah Michelle-Gellar doing a chicken dance on ice skates*, and how all of the thrills, spills, and exploding things were filmed!
I’ve gotta say, listening to Spike talk with an American accent is really trippy.
*I’m not kidding about that, watch the video and see!

They put up Bridesmaids, we went. They put up Pitch Perfect, we went. They put up The Devil Wears Prada, which was in two-thousand-meryl-streeping-oh-six, and we went (and by “we,” I do not just mean women; I mean we, the humans), and all of it has led right here, right to this place. Right to the land of zippedy-doo-dah. You can apparently make an endless collection of high-priced action flops and everybody says “win some, lose some” and nobody decides that They Are Poison, but it feels like every “surprise success” about women is an anomaly and every failure is an abject lesson about how we really ought to just leave it all to The Rock. — Linda Holmes for NPR.
I recommend reading the entirety of Linda Holmes’ piece, “At The Movies, The Women Are Gone,” about how it is currently nearly impossible, in most parts of America, to go to a theater and see a work of fiction that is about a woman. However, I found this paragraph of it to be perhaps the most powerful one, and I have my own caveat to add: After the commercial success of The Hunger Games, Brave, Snow White and the Huntsman, and Prometheus (to pull merely from 2012 alone), and after the increasingly vital and action oriented roles of women in superhero movies like The Avengers and Iron Man 3, not to mention Man of Steel and The Dark Knight Rises in which the female leads have been praised as some of the best aspects of the film… After that, how long are we expected to pretend that a movie with a female Marvel or DC superhero in the lead is such farfetched idea?

You may remember some dads getting together to sing “Part of Your World” from Disney’s The Little Mermaid. It was freaking adorable. Now, the folks from Life of Dad have brought together hero dads of all kinds – military personnel, teachers, fighter fighters – to lend their voices to “A Whole New World” from Aladdin. With a bonus assist from a few kids. Happy Memorial Day, everyone!

The Gäsm is a limited production vibrator made from 100% recycled materials, including repurposed rubber and compressed wood pulp. And even though it comes disassembled with instructions, and its batteries can be recharged by winding it with an included allen wrench, it is not made by Ikea. It’s made by LELO, a manufacturer in high-end sex toys. But while it’s only available for order until April 1st, it’s not a joke product. Okay, it’s at least partly a joke product, look at it, but, I mean, it’s an actual thing that you can buy. And probably functions as well, but just to make sure, we reached out to our new official sex-toy expert, Iris Explosion, whose day job is working for Babeland, a lady-owned and founded chain of adult toy stores.READ MORE

If Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar were to engage in a successful television phenomenon it would be a significant to return to television for both of them. Williams hasn’t been a television regular since Mork & Mindy, and while Gellar recently graced screens in Ringer, the show was short lived. And that’s what, according to Deadline, is happening.READ MORE
