2002′s Better Luck Tomorrow made a bit of a splash when it was released over a decade ago. The story surrounds a group of seemingly straight-laced Asian-American high school students who descend into a world of cheating, drug-dealing and murder. In Hollywood terms, the roles were markedly “against type”; in plain terms, it meant movie-goers finally [...]

The most offensive moment of last night’s 84th Academy Awards wasn’t J-Lo’s alleged nip slip or Jim Rash’s hilarious Angelina Jolie-inspired stage stance or even that we didn’t get to hear Bret McKenzie’s winning Muppets song, but came right after a beautiful hot mess of an acceptance speech. After Octavia Spencer fumbled her way through [...]

This week, DC released the cover art of one of the seven prequel miniseries, Before Watchmen, which features Ozymandias meditating/levitating.

There are some people in Hollywood whom you automatically feel are kindred spirits, like a spirit animal of sorts but, well, human. Ever since the Diwali episode of The Office, I’ve felt that way about writer/actor/comedienne – oh and SHOWRUNNER – Mindy Kaling. Naturally, I couldn’t wait to buy – er, download – her book, [...]
If you’ve been following me on twitter, you know that I’m mildly (okay, more like wildly) obsessed with FX’s Sons of Anarchy.
