what is this I don’t even

David Joachim, editor of the Washington bureau of the New York Times, just tweeted the cover of this week’s New York Times Magazine, and it’s no moon. It’s an inexplicable, not particularly creative, visual metaphor that would be incredibly visually unflattering no matter whose face you did it to. Also, part of a weird trend.
But I know what my nerd brain is saying about it. It’s saying “MOISTURIZE ME,” and wondering if Planet Hillary could hang out with Mogo so he’d be less lonely, defeat Unicron, or negotiate peace with Galactus.READ MORE
Kristen Stewart’s Starring In a Romantic Remake of 1984, And Here’s Why It Might Not Suck As Much As You Think It Will

No, this is not a joke. The “YA dystopia for teenage girls” genre has come full circle and is sinking its teeth into 1984. Equals will be a “slightly updated version” of George Orwell‘s dystopian classic, with the main update being, according to its director, that “it’s about love in a world where love really doesn’t exist anymore.” Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult are starring. And I’m here to play devil’s advocate and say that it might not be the scourge upon humanity that you think it will be. Open your minds, my lovelies. But not too wide. Big Brother is watching.READ MORE

Empire Magazine has just released their February movie cover, and the good news is, it’s Captain America: The Winter Solider-themed! The bad news is, poor Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow is once again forced that classic, female superhero position: the butt pose. Iconic, but in the worst way.READ MORE

It’s just Peter Capaldi‘s eyes! And it isn’t even a new shot of his eyes. It’s the exact same shot we got in the 50th anniversary special! Capaldi has wonderful eyebrows, I’ll grant you (sorry, Matt Smith), but this is just too far.
Then again, we are posting it. Touché, BBC.READ MORE

TV movie Descendants will revolve around the offspring of the main characters of Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Tangled, and Mulan, heading into prep school with the new kids: four children descended from Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen (Snow White), and Jafar.
Let me repeat: Disney is making a high school AU based on the children of their most famous characters. And you better believe that if it does well it’ll become a spinoff series.
I have so many questions.READ MORE

I don’t know how fans photoshopping actor/writer Wil Wheaton’s face into other pop-culture properties became such a big thing. But it has. And I’m glad. As far as I can tell, it all started when Wheaton tweeted a photo of himself on a green screen and one of his followers, a graphic designer, quickly photoshopped him onto the bridge of the Enterprise. So he posted another green screen photo and things just evolved (devolved?) from there.READ MORE

Yesterday we told you about the first four women to graduate from marine infantry training following the decision earlier this year that female members of the U.S. military should be able to serve in combat. Yay! Gender equality! Progress!
Col. Lynette Arnhart is the leader of a team studying how to best integrate women into these combat positions. And she has a beef with the way women are portrayed in the army’s PR materials. Namely: The soldiers used aren’t “average-looking” enough.READ MORE

OK, OK. “Gritty” might be pushing it. But the plot synopsis of It’s a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story (yes, that’s the title) has more than a twinge of the ridiculously depressing, even if it’s unintentional.READ MORE
