My favorite foo-foo dresses I wish I had a reason to wear.
Whether the dress is costume-y or fashion, I truly love dressing up. I respect those who don't, and would never be a jerk about it, but I have a closet of lovely things and nowhere to go, you guys! Since I was a kid, I've mentally curated an imaginary "list" of my top favorite dresses from movies. Some of them made the list for my previous article about fictional fashion, and some belong here, in my top favorite dresses I wish I had somewhere to wear.Read More
And it's not the line you might be thinking of.
In the past, many celebrities have asked a political candidate to refrain from quoting something or using a song due to differing political beliefs. According to Patinkin, you can't pick and choose your quotes from a movie that has a main message of love conquering all unless your politics back that up, too.Read More
Boy, suddenly I wish I was at TIFF: according to The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Reitman hosted a live-read of The Princess Bride that starred Rob Reiner as The Grandpa, Rachel McAdams as Buttercup, Donald Glover as Vizzini, and Patrick Stewart as Humperdinck.

No one tell my baby he's not a Dread Pirate Roberts!
I'm way behind on Season 2 of The Goldbergs, but I definitely had a Selfie-like relationship with the show's first season, which surprised me with its sincerity, awesome cast and frequent homage episodes to '80s classics like The Goonies.

"There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world..." ["Your Body Is a Wonderland" plays in the distance.]
The Princess Bride is already getting a stage production, but in a recent interview director Rob Reiner revealed that musician John Mayer, among others, already took a crack at musicalizing what many consider to be one of the most perfect—certainly one of the most quotable—movies ever made. But it was not as the Broadway gods wished.Read More
Musical TV series don't have a great track record but this new one from ABC might be just what the doctor ordered. At their recent upfronts, ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee called Galavant "Spamalot meets Princess Bride," which is pretty much on point. I'd add Robin Hood Men in Tights to that as well.
