Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel’s First Reactions Are Here! (Hint: IT’S LIT)

Captain Marvel held its first critics screening last night and the first reactions are, unsurprisingly, out of this world. Larson apparently kicks the expected amount of ass as Carol Danvers, but what has me truly excited is how weird this movie sounds. Captain Marvel is a deep-space adventure that people are using words like “trippy” and “ambitious to describe. Plus, Ben Mendelsohn apparently steals the show, as well as Goose the cat.

Ariana Grande and Piers Morgan "bond" over dinner and drinks

Twitter was confused when Piers Morgan thanked Ariana Grande for a "great night," and Ariana responded:

The two previously had a public feud after Piers attacked Little Mix and Ariana came to their defense. Ariana's Mom had some words to say to Piers as well. [Edit: You can see more from their feud here, which started when Piers said Little Mix was using their sexuality to sell records.]

But last night the two bumped into each other and seemed to be on good terms.

The panel discusses the controversy surrounding the iconic WWII kissing sailor photo, which was turned into a statue that was recently defaced with #MeToo. Sunny mentions how the two people in the photo were strangers and the sailor actually had a girlfriend at the time, who eventually became his wife.

Couple more anonymous Oscar ballots show love to 'Roma' & 'BlacKkKlansman', more

Yep, even more of these, and THR - who began these anonymous ballots - have finally released the first of theirs. This one's from a director (sounds well known), who had nothing but love for Spike Lee and 'BlacKkKlansman', and voted for both in the top two prizes, as well as adapted screenplay. They hated 'Bohemian Rhapsody' (props there), but were cool with their buddy Viggo Mortensen using the N-word to explain his bullshit (so a mess there). 'Green Book' is also pretty low on both of these voters' preferential voting list, thank goodness.

Both this director, and the costume designer below in the second ballot, went with Christian Bale in 'Vice' for best actor, who wasn't so much of impersonation of Cheney, but truly brought the monster to life (which is true).

They also showed love and voted to their friend Olivia Colman for 'The Favourite' in best actress, thought Mahershala Ali did well but wasn't a fan of the category fraud, so their supporting actor nod went to Richard E. Grant for 'Can You Ever Forgive Me?'. Weirdly enough the category fraud didn't bother them in supporting actress because they voted for Emma Stone (The Favourite)??

Both voters also chose Paul Schrader's 'First Reformed' for original screenplay, and split score between 'BlacKkKlansman' and 'Black Panther'. Lady Gaga got their vote for song for 'Shallow', and the rest of the list is at the source.

TV Spot For 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters'

Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.

In Theaters May 31.

Dakota Johnson Says Her Period Is 'Ruining Her Life'


In an interview with Instyle Dakota Johnson talked about her menstrual cycle and the difficult search for the right birth control:

If I’m honest, my hormonal changes during my menstrual cycle are ruining my life. Every month. It’s unbelievable. It’s really fucking amazing. I can’t get a grip on it. I’m like, what? Every time, I’m totally scandalized about what happens to my body and my brain. My boobs are like eight times the size they normally are. It’s really a traumatic thing, and it happens every month. I just can’t get used to it.

It’s really, really insane. It’s also very tricky to figure out what type of birth control you’re meant to be on, and if it’s even healthy. [...] I really would like to understand and be able to manage things a little better, know what’s happening in my body, and know what I’m putting into it.

Jussie Smollett charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report

Empire actor Jussie Smollett has been “officially classified” as a suspect in a criminal investigation for allegedly filling a false police report, according to Chicago police communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi. He goes on to state it is a Class 4 felony and that detectives are currently presenting evidence before a Cook County grand jury.

Minutes before this news broke, CBS2 in Chicago obtained an exclusive video of the two brothers (Ola and Abel Osundairo) linked to the attack. The brothers appear to buy ski masks, gloves, bandanas, sunglasses and red hats from a store the day before the assault.

Last year's Oscars acting winners will only present Lead Actor & Lead Actress this year

Yes, last year's acting winners Gary Oldman, Allison Janney, Frances McDormand, and Sam Rockwell will be presenting at this weekend's Oscars. But rather than the tradition of previous supporting/lead presenting to the winner of the opposite sex individually, the four will be paired up to present lead actor and actress.

So yes, Gary Oldman and Allison Janney will be presenting Leading Actor (unfortunately probably to Rami Malk). Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell will present Leading Actress (probs to Glenn Close).

No clue who's presenting the supporting awards as of yet. I'm sure it'll be some random person like those presenting the Best Picture showreels, or the amazing list of A-list presenters the Academy was so eager to throw in in place of a host.

Jussie Smollett Faces Prison, Career Ruin if He Lied About Attack

He is facing prison time and the implosion of his career if it turns out he lied about being the target of a hate crime, legal and public relations experts say :

• If he falsified a police report, the charge is a Class 4 felony in Illinois, and carries a potential sentence of one to three years in prison. 
• He could also be ordered to pay restitution to compensate for the cost of the CPD investigation.
• Should that letter turn out to be fake, federal prosecutors could also pursue a mail fraud charge.
• He could get probation, assuming that he has a clean record. Prosecutors may face pressure not to be lenient.
• Prosecutors could also file a charge of obstruction of justice. 
• He would be allowed to plead to a misdemeanor, and not serve jail time.
• His lawyers may be having a psychiatrist examine the guy so they could prepare some kind of psychiatric defense.
• He may see endorsement opportunities and roles dry up if he is found to have been untruthful. 
• He will need to demonstrate that he’s learned a lesson.
• Apologize to the people who have supported him, promise to make it up, and find a cause that’s near and dear to his heart and devote himself to it.
• If he did fabricate the attack, he needs to be more proactive.
• He needs to go see the police. He needs to apologize.
• He needs to make the announcement about what happened instead of letting the facts leak out.

Remember "MySpace Queen" Audrey Kitching? Turns out she's a fradulent healer now

- Audrey Kitching was one of the original MySpace Scene Queens along with Hannah Beth and Jeffrey Starr.
- She starred in a YouTube series called Trashy Life alongside Zui Suicide (aka Lauren Watts).
- Following MySpace's demise, Kitching became a fashion blogger and editor for pop-culture website Buzznet.
- She then founded Crystal Cactus, a new age site where she performs energy healing and readings. On the site, Kitching sells crystal jewelry and dildos.
- People who worked with Kitching say she's a fraud who emotionally, mentally and spiritually abuses her assistants.
- Kitching is a loner who spends most of her time in bed or in her bathtub while her assistants do her work for her.
- Kitching doesn't make her own jewelry like she claims. She purchases large quantities of costume jewelry on Aliexpress and marks up the prices on her site.
- She also plagiarizes content from other personal development and spiritual thought leaders.
- Kitching hasn't responded to the claims and now focuses on astrology.


It's a good read tbh.

Misha and Vicki Collins releasing a book, "The Adventurous Eaters Club"

You can pre-order the hardback or Kindle editions (set to be released November 5th, 2019) on Amazon. Misha and Vicki talk about their battles to get son West to eat as a toddler and how they succumbed to pressure by giving him processed foods at first until they figured out a way to get their kids to eat healthy - by inviting them into the kitchen and allowed them to play and explore. Their kids now "eat salad as a comfort food" and neither has to rely on coercion, trickery, or treats to get them to eat. They interview early childhood educators, pediatricians, and therapists, draw on nutrition studies and child development research to reveal their strategies. There's also recipes for such foods as Green Eggs & Ham popovers, shitake Cripsies, salad popsicles, and kale and bacon sushi. Vicki previously wrote a book back in 2007 about threesomes.

Netflix’s One Day at a Time might face cancellation again despite rave reviews

¡Híjole! Once again, Netflix’s One Day at a Time is in danger of getting cancelled due to low viewership. Co-showrunner Gloria Calderón Kellett asked fans to raise awareness to prevent the show’s cancellation on Twitter writing, “Met with @Netflix about @OneDayAtATime S4. They made clear that they love the show, love how it serves underrepresented audiences, love its heart & humor, but...we need more viewers.” She adds, “They'll decide soon. I wish I felt more confident. WHAT CAN YOU DO? Tell friends to watch!”

Smh. But Netflix can spend $100 million on streaming rights to Friends for one year. Last year similar news by the cast was spread online which helped convince Netflix to renew the show for a third season and saved the show. Let’s hope it works again, spread the word.

Rebel Wilson Says Dating Was Easier in Atlanta: 'I Was Considered a 10 There'

Rebel Wilson is looking for love again but says it isn’t all that easy finding it in Los Angeles.
When she shot Pitch Perfect 3 in Atlanta, she was popular there. She was considered a 10 there.
She says Hollywood’s beauty standards are very unrealistic.

With 'Isn’t It Romantic' she is representing real women as a romantic lead
70% percent of American women are plus-size (size 14 and over).
She is actually the average for an American woman, which is 16-18.
In representation in films…it’s less than 1 percent where you see plus-size girl starring in a film.

For her new dating ventures, she says she is using dating app Raya.
She looks for someone who is physically bigger than her. It makes her feel more feminine.
If she feels like she's going to crush a guy in a cage fight, then they are probably not the guy for her.
She really just wants to meet someone who is generous and nice.

New trailer for the BFI re-release of Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange

Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Anthony Burgess’s decline-of-civilisation novel remains a chilling, thrilling and unsettling cinematic vision of nihilistic violence and social control.

Set in a flamboyantly stylised near-future where gangs of disenfranchised teenagers indulge in narcotic cocktails and revel in acts of ‘ultraviolence’, the film stars Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Magee, Michael Bates, and Warren Clarke. The film will be back on UK cinemas April 5, 2019.

Favorite Kubrick film, ONTD? I'm partial to Eyes Wide Shut, tbh.

Netflix Cancels ‘Friends From College’

Friends From College, the Netflix original starring Cobie Smulders, Keegan-Michael Key, and Fred Savage + others, which premiered in 2017 and just released its second season in January, will not be returning for a third season. That is according to Nicholas Stoller, the co-creator, director (of most episodes), and writer (of some episodes) of the show, who announced it on his Twitter a couple days ago.


The most disappointing thing to happen to Fred Savage fans since they cancelled The Grinder.
