Hot or Not: Miley Cyrus Shows Off More Goth-Inspired Fashion

Miley Cyrus, Tish Cyrus

Ahead of last night’s VH1 Diva Awards, Miley Cyrus was seen walking to rehearsals with her mom Tish Cyrus. The former Disney star is doing her best to replace her innocent, young starlet past with a more adult look. This time around she’s not performing with nearly-naked women, but she was dressed like she was headed to a performance at a strip club. The somewhat confused 20-year-old star was bearing her midriff in a scandalously short, studded stop coupled with leather pants, extremely high-healed boots & a short hairdo, which, by the way, does nothing for Miley besides making her looking like a sexually confused little boy.

Here’s some photos from the actual performance at the 2012 VH1 Divas:

Hot or Not: Charlize Theron Hits Movies w/ her “Mad Max” Buzz Cut

Charlize Theron hits the movies with her Mom

There are some actresses who look sexy, while others end up looking too butch or boyish (Anne Hathaway is a recent example of boyish), but I think it’s safe to say that Charlize Theron definitely falls in the former category. These latest photos were snapped over the weekend as the 37-year-old actress was seen hitting up a movie with her mom at Arclight Theater in Hollywood. We haven’t seen many out & about photos of her lately because she’s been busy filming her latest project in Africa.

These days Charlize is filming her latest film “Mad Max: Fury Road,” which started shooting in July 2012 in the Republic of Namibia, which is located in southern Africa. The 2013 post-apocalyptic action film’s deep cast includes Tom Hardy (as Mad Max), Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravitz, just to name a few. Look for the $100 million flick to hit theaters sometime in 2013 (assuming it’s going to be late-summer/early-fall release). CAN’T FUCKING WAIT, BABY!!!

L.A.: Bella Thorne Goes Shopping With Her Two Puppies

Bella Thorne & Tristan Klier

These were snapped yesterday afternoon as jailbait, 15-year-old Disney starlet Bella Thorne was seen shopping at Americana Mall in Glendale with her boyfriend Tristan Klier. The dude’s age was previously misreported, so he’s not 18, but rather, only a 14-year-old high school freshman. We’re pretty sure he’s member of the cool group who eats lunch at the cool table and probably plays baseball & lacrosse with his cool friends. Those bastards.

Since this post is already getting creepy, we’ll stop writing here.

Why Did Adam Lanza Shoot Little Kids? Who Gets The Blame?

Adam Lanza

The debate is officially on, but I was shocked how Obama chose to dance around the whole gun policy issue as opposed to telling it like it is. That’s why he can drop all the tears he wants to drop, but we all know his hands are tied when it comes to making lasting change on the legal front. I think it’s safe to say that there needs to be a retroactive assault weapons ban, which means that people who previously purchased those types of guns will need to drop them off at local law enforcement in exchange for some sort of tax credit or outright reimbursement.

As for Adam Lanza & the reasons behind the massacre: Let’s just say it gets weirder & weirder with each bit of information that’s slowly leaking from local law enforcement. Here’s what we know:

All 20 kids were shot multiple times; a couple of them up to 11 times!! WHAT THE FUCK?!

Nancy Lanza was part of the prepper movement, which means she was getting ready for massive turmoil when economy falls apart and total anarchy breaks out. Members of the movement are known for hoarding supplies and training with weapons.

Nancy Lanza divorced in 2009, although legal documents report no mental health issues for Adam over the split. Riiiight.

Adam Lanza suffered from Asperger syndrome

People who knew Adam Lanza are painting a mixed portrait of the killer: Some day he was extremely anti-social & odd, while others say he was an average kid.

As early as less than a week before the attack, Nancy Lanza had told a friend of her fears that she was “losing” her son. “She said it was getting worse. She was having trouble reaching him.” (Telegraph)

Police recovered badly damaged computers from the Lanza residence.

Adam Lanza shot his mom in the face multiple times while she was asleep.

So, what’s everyone’s take on this? What would cause some 20-year-old kid to go ape-shit on a bunch of 6 & 7-year-old kids?! Is it his way of “saving” them from the horrible world?

Wassup Gay Boys?! “Hangover III” Stills Hit the Web


Another trilogy from Peter Jackson? Eh, not so much. But this one does star the screamingly hilarious Zach Galifianakis in the lead as adorable weirdo and man-child Alan. For those who can’t wait until next May 24 when the movie releases, the third (and final) Hangover movie brings the quartet of friends back to Vegas where it all started where much familiar, outrageous, and fun wackiness is sure to ensue.

The movie starts off in a somber way for Alan, according to director Todd Phillips: “He’s going through a crisis after the death of his father, [and] the Wolfpack is all he has.” We don’t exactly what happens, but we know one thing’s for sure: Mr. Chow shows up unexpectedly to harass and harangue the Wolfpack with his choicest juvenile taunts.

Get your Mr. Chow masks now, kids. He will be the Halloween costume of 2013.


Amour: Film Review

Visit the film’s official website!

Foreign film aficionados, this one’s for you. And a head’s up in case you are wary of the fact that it happens to be directed by Austrian gore-master Michael Haneke: there is nothing in this movie that will offend the delicate sensibilities of the squeamish. Nothing bloody, that is.

Amour, which has been winning many prizes of late since it was first screened earlier this year (including the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival), is something that almost everyone should want to see, even if they think they won’t enjoy the subject matter. A love story between elderly people? A geriatric romance? A 120 minutes PSA on the virtues of adult diapers? With subtitles??

Well, all of this true, and it still makes for an impressive movie. Starring the two indie titans of French cinema in the lead roles (Emmanuelle Riva and Jean-Louis Trintignan), the story begins when the couple comes home to find their house has been robbed. The next morning, a stroke affects one of them, setting off a chain of health problems that serve to remind them that Life is, at last, coming to an end. It is a fate we will all share, with Time being our eternal tormentor, the movie says.

Unlike the treacly tripe that was The Notebook (and frankly anything else ever based on Nicholas Sparks’s remedial and misogynistic writing), Amour struggles with the big question of Love: its ability to sustain Life and to survive Death. Nothing in the movie is overly bombastic or melodramatic. The overtures on the tragedies of aging are subtle. Life is painted in small and measured strokes, all of which makes the movie eminently watchable.

For everyone who will ever age (or knows someone who has aged), this movie is a reminder that the sum total of Life is not about its definitive moments, but its unremarkable and even mundane events that create what we know to be the pattern of loving ourselves and the others in our lives.

“The Hobbit” Sets New December Box-Office Record

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

The Hobbit received an A CinemaScore from moviegoers, portending good word-of-mouth. [THR]

Like we didn’t know this was going to happen: Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit opened to rave reviews from fans (the critics were more mixed) and managed to set a new box-office record for the month of December. Take that, latest bomb from Gerard Butler!

All told, the official North American take for The Hobbit stands at $84.8 million. When you factor in the additional $138.2 million the film made overseas, you get a whopping global debut of $223 million, ahead of even the masses’ darling The Return of the King (which you will recall won over a dozen Oscars, Best Picture among them). As Gollum would say, that is some ‘precious’ kaching, y’all.

Apart from the obvious love for the original trilogy that guaranteed a massive audience, the movie benefited from the fact that it is the first mainstream Hollywood release to be shown in IMAX theaters at the ultra high-def 48 frames per second, which naturally allows theater owners to charge even more for the price of admission. Look for other studios to try and pad their coiffures with much the same gimmick.

Until the, we await The Desolation of Smaug next year!

Ironic Noir Trailer Watch: Lindsay Lohan in “The Canyons”

Check out the latest trailer for the upcoming film The Canyons, a sort of ironic throwback to the heyday of Hollywood when much of the melodrama in a movie was given away in the trailer. The movie is directed by “the never nominated” Paul Schrader and stars Lindsay Lohan as a woman named Tara who is torn between two equally good looking and brooding young James Dean-esque men. One of the actors is actually named James Deen. Will the irony never stop?! (And what is Gus Van Sant doing the cast?)

I’m not sure if this is supposed to be a joke or if it’s a serious attempt to bring Lindsay Lohan back to the realm of public respectability. Either way, I’m kind of curious to find out.

Are you? If so, let us know, because the film is still looking for a distributor.
