Most US, live-action adaptations of mangas are known to be thrown into developmental hell and take years before they see the light of day. In a movie landscape that is mainly dominated by instant adaptations of YA novels, their sequels, and remakes, only two movies come to mind as being a directly sourced from popular mangas and/or animes: 2008’s Speed Racer and 2013’s American remake of Oldboy. Neither of the movies were box office hits. Instead of ... Read More

It's 2014 and this is officially Nicki Minaj’s year. She rang in the new year with February’s “Lookin Ass” (which literally annihilated the male gaze) and made headlines with her “Baby Got Back”-reclaiming “Anaconda”. Now let’s remember how we all got to know and love her in the first place: her track-dominating features. Ursulatheseabitch, an 8tracks user, created a dance (and/or tears) inducing mega mix ...

The Modern Man is the Internet’s latest mangled bits of thirsty, quasi-Men’s Right Activist dating advice coming from Dan Bacon, a self-appointed “dating and relationship expert.” Needless to say, Bacon is only concerned with heterosexual, cisgender dudes. Obviously.
Promising men the ultimate advice for scoring a gal, Bacon flaunts his “expertise” with women via a cheekily [seemingly photoshopped] image of a ... Read More

Matthew Weiner, head writer and show runner of AMC’s Mad Men, tackles unfamiliar territory with his new film, Are You Here. This is not to be confused with Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here - though they are both indie films about white families with lots of emotions.
Apart from that, it’s hard to describe exactly what Are You Here is in terms of a single genre, which may or may not have been the intention. In simplest of words, I would call it ... Read More

Yo, I hate to say it, but summer is almost over. RIP. But hey! Fall is right around the corner, with all of the orange leaves and cozy sweaters that go along with it. Oh, and don’t forget the campfire GHOST STORIES and bad Halloween movies! (Haunted Ouija boards, anybody?)
Fortunately, Lifetime is set to prep you for all of fall’s creepy, dark nights and the nefarious things that happen after dark in the woods. They are adapting the Stephen ... Read More

In surprising news of the day, Big Boi (of OutKast) is an obsessive Kate Bush fan. Unsurprisingly, so are many other musicians and writers and celebrities and regular people because Kate Bush is the shit. Even though the Spin article that catalogs Big Boi’s intense love is about three years old, it’s always worth reminding people of the dream musical collab that has yet to happen. Nowadays, Bush is pretty busy. Tonight marks the first time ... Read More

In June, Hobby Lobby became the world’s most infamous craft store after the Supreme Court ruled that the company could deny employees' birth control based on religious objections. Of course, this landmark decision has open up a stream of terrible implications regarding birth control rights for other employees across America, potentially limiting access for those who cannot afford expensive, out-of-pocket prescriptions. This past weekend, the Obama ... Read More

Manhattan women of a certain age have always been known to have great taste in style. This was no secret to Ari Cohen, who in 2008 began photographing the older women of the city with a show-stopping fashion sense for his blog, Advanced Style. Flamboyant, pattern heavy, and each individually unique, the women of Advanced Style gathered a following strong enough to spawn a photo book as well as a coloring book. We even featured one of his muses, Debra Rapoport, as ... Read More
