'Star Wars' Was The First Movie I Saw Twice in a Theater

In the summer of 1977, the biggest movie of the summer was Star Wars. I had been eagerly tracking the progress of the film's opening through various fan magazines, and was not disappointed when we finally went to see it, on Long Beach Island (at a theater in Beach Haven, which alas, is no more). My family were all big science fiction fans and loved the movie, from the corny crawl-titles at the start to the big space battle at the end. ...more

Interview: Director Brett Morgen on Creating 'Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck'

In 2007, Courtney Love gave filmmaker Brett Morgen the keys to the kingdom — the kingdom of Kurt Cobain. Cobain’s clothes, toy collection, journals, artwork, videos, recordings, and other possessions were all being kept in a non-descript storage facility. Now Love, who’d been impressed by Morgen’s documentary about film producer Robert Evans, The Kid Stays in the Picture, wanted Morgen to use Cobain’s artifacts as the basis of documentary about him. ...more

Parenting Inspiration From Amy Schumer

I have a complete talent crush on comedienne Amy Schumer. I can't be the only one who watched Amy's appearance on over and over again, making sure to share it with everyone I've ever met. She's not just adorably funny, but she's proudly inappropriate and unashamed. And while I know it may sound odd, when I watch her on talk shows, do stand up or on her Comedy Central show "Inside Amy Schumer," I admire the fact that she doesn't seem to care about being appropriate, polite or politically correct. ...more

The Problem With Calling the Black Widow a Slut

You might have seen that Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner during a press junket responded to a question about Black Widow's romantic interests in Avengers: Age of Ultron (not saying who, SPOILERS, but it was brought up to them because in prior films it seemed like her interests were aimed at Captain America and Hawkeye) and both men joked that she's a slut, a whore, and she has a fake leg (which painted people with prosthetics as being something unattractive)....more

Dealing with the WTF of 'Grey's Anatomy' Grief

The problem with recovering from the grief of a death of a major character in a Shondaland show is that you have many, many emotions to calm. Sadness and the pain of loss, of course.  The ache of nostalgia overtakes you in the inevitable cascade of flashback scenes. You've known this character for years! ...more

Follow the Ladies of Prey As They Take on the World Championship of Taxidermy

A dead bird in the hand feels like a grenade: cold, compact, loaded.

They take scalpels to the specimens.  ...more
