Sara Bareilles Teams Up With J.J. Abrams for Musical Series on Apple TV

OK, I'm a sucker for musical television shows. I was totally a "Gleek" and I loved Smash (well, I loved the first season of Smash). Now, J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot is delving into more musical territory with Apple TV by giving a platform to one of my favorite singer-songwriters, Sara Bareilles.

Honest Trailers Extols A Wrinkle in Time as a Film for Everyone “From 10-Year-Old Girls to People High on Shrooms”

No matter how I feel about a film, I can always count on Honest Trailers to help me see that film in a new way. While I already liked A Wrinkle in Time, despite it uneven tone, there's one thing that I never really thought about when I saw it in theaters, but can totally think about now that it's available on Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD...

So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye…

Bumblebee Teaser Trailer Delivers the Most Human (and Huggable!) Look at Transformers Yet

To be honest, I've never been much of a Transformers fan. I don't know what it is, but I've always just had a block about it. Whether in cartoon, comics, or live-action form, I've never been able to emotionally connect to the franchise. That is, until I saw this teaser trailer for the upcoming Bumblebee movie. I've never wanted to hug a robot so badly in my whole life. And I'm someone who's wanted to hug a bunch of robots.

Better Limber Up for More Bending and Snapping, Because Legally Blonde 3 Is Officially in the Works!

I'll be honest. After seeing and loving the first Legally Blonde film back in the day, I never saw Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, and Blonde. Mostly because Holy Craptastic Title, Batman! However, I would definitely love to revisit the life of my favorite exuberant fictional lawyer. Well, Reese Witherspoon is currently in talks to reprise the role in Legally Blonde 3! OMG, you guys!

Harvard Law Student and Single Mom Briana Williams Gets Law Degree After Taking Final Exam While in Labor

If one were to adhere to commonly accepted narratives about women, education, career, and motherhood, one would believe that getting pregnant and having a baby as a single mother is a surefire way to "ruin one's life." Briana Williams thought that was nonsense, and she wasn't about to let a tiny thing like "going into labor" keep her from taking her final exam at Harvard Law School.

Jon Stewart Warns Samantha Bee Not to Play Into the Right’s Moral Double Standard With Apologies

I'll admit, when I saw that Samantha Bee took to Twitter to apologize "for using an expletive on my show to describe [Ivanka Trump]," I was a bit disappointed. I mean, I get it. There was likely pressure from her network, and a woman's gotta keep her show going. Still, I was disappointed that TBS couldn't stand behind their most incisive voice. During a recent appearance, Jon Stewart had some advice, one political comedian to another, about how to handle stuff like this in the future.

Dudes Who Read GQ Have Likely Never Heard of #MeToo—and Other Disturbing Survey Findings

As this joint survey between Glamour Magazine and its brother publication GQ shows, not involving men in the #MeToo conversation in a positive way perpetuates ignorance at best, and allows some pretty harmful attitudes to fester at worst.

Beware! J. Crew Is Here to Turn Your Kids Feminist and Gay With Their T-Shirts—At Least, According to Some Conservatives

Whenever a corporate entity releases a product supporting a progressive cause, I always have mixed feelings. I generally support the effort, because I believe every little bit helps, but I'm also usually a teensy bit skeptical, as it is likely that the company is simply using issues I care about as a marketing tool to sell stuff. Yet for some people, their greatest fear is that the wrong product might somehow make their child *gasp* political.

Interview: Director Theresa Bennett and Star Aya Cash on What Social Animals Explores About Relationships

Written and directed by Theresa Bennett in her feature film debut, Social Animals stars Noël Wells as Zoe, a woman in her thirties who can't quite seem to get a handle on the whole "growing up" thing. You're the Worst's Aya Cash co-stars in the film, and I had the chance to speak with her and Bennett during a recent press day for the film in Los Angeles.

Was That Marvel Comics Totally Poking Fun at the Sony Pronunciation of “Symbiote”?

I love meta-commentary, especially when it's funny. When the first trailer for the upcoming Venom dropped, one of the biggest talking points was about one of the characters' pronunciation of the word "symbiote" and how it was completely and totally wrong. (The dictionary apparently disagrees, but I disagree with the goddamn dictionary). Now, Marvel Comics seems to be having a bit of fun with it.

Samantha Bee Blasts Ivanka Trump for This Week’s “Second Most Oblivious Tweet” in the Face of Immigration Crisis

Samantha Bee's Full Frontal segment last night on the crisis migrant families are dealing with in the face of the Trump administration's heartless immigration policy wasn't entirely about Ivanka Trump. But a scathing closing that highlighted the First Daughter's oblivious hypocrisy sure put a nice button on the whole thing.

I Wasn’t Annoyed by the Part of Han Solo’s Backstory That Annoyed Everyone Else—Here’s What Did Annoy Me

What's in a name?

There are definitely mixed reactions to Solo: A Star Wars Story. You can go ahead and put me firmly in the "loved it" camp. It wasn't a perfect movie, but it was enjoyable from beginning to end, and I had a lot of fun. There seems to be one element of the plot in particular that sticks in people's craws in a way that hasn't stuck in mine.  [SPOILERS AHOY!]
