Beyoncé blesses us with two new tracks … “7/11″ & “Ring Off”

beyonce

Like all massively selling albums, Beyoncé's self-titled fifth studio album (released by surprise last December without any promotion or announcement) is getting its own box set platinum edition tomorrow (iTunes), which can only mean one thing: new bonus tracks–yay! So take a listen to the two new songs that will be included on the box set, "7/11" (now with a music video) and "Ring Off". I have absolutely no idea what "7/11" is about ... MORE

Good Grief! The trailer for ‘Peanuts’ (The Movie!)

Peanuts

Every once in a while, I like to pop in here and remind you about the weird little differences between Canada and the US. One of the most notable being that our Thanksgiving is in October rather than November, so once Halloween is out of the way, it's pretty much one big luge towards the holiday season. Which is why I'm sure most of you are probably already exhausted about Christmas, but not us! Especially when Peanuts releases a trailer MORE

Trailer: Disney’s (live-action) ‘Cinderella’

Cinderella

You have to give Disney credit where credit is due: They have a great understanding of their own image, and a keen awareness of how ... dated, shall we say, some of their earlier fare was. I mean yes, the Disney princess films are classics, but they're still very much aware of how much times have changed, and they're doing a lot to try and rework their formula to create better female characters. (Frozen in particular did this well, though you MORE

Kathy Griffin: Officially stepping up to the ‘Fashion Police’ plate

Kathy Griffin Fashion Police

For the past few weeks, rumors have been going around that Kathy Griffin would be stepping in to take the lead on Fashion Police. It didn't hurt that Griffin herself had gone on the record to say that she had been asked, and also that Melissa Rivers had given the show her blessing to keep on keeping on (she also produces Fashion Police). Well, as of yesterday, it's official: Kathy has been named the new lead on Fashion Police–I do believe that MORE

Take a look at NBC’s ‘Peter Pan LIVE!’

Peter Pan Live

Last year's live performance of The Sound of Music (with Carrie Underwood) may not have been everyone's cup of soup, but I personally liked it a lot. I never actually saw the original or the Broadway version, so I didn't come into it with any expectations, but more than anything, I appreciated the pure spectacle of it. It's not often we get to see live specials on TV anymore, so the fact that they went all out for a show is something to be MORE

Azealia Banks is a ‘Broke “Ice Princess” with Expensive Taste’

Azealia Banks

It's been a while since we talked about Azealia Banks, mostly because her musical output (fantastic though it is) kind of got eclipsed by her feuding with everyone. Thankfully, her album Broke with Expensive Taste (iTunes) has finally seen its long overdue and highly anticipated release–SHE'S BACK! THANK HEAVENS SHE'S BACK! It's like a Christmas miracle! (I'm fully aware that Xmas is still over a month away, let me have this.) Anyway, here's MORE

Official Full Trailer: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

Fifty Shades of Grey

I'll be the first to admit, I haven't exactly been subtle in my disdain for Fifty Shades of Grey (in theaters Valentine's Day–how romantic). In fact, anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of BDSM knows enough to veer as far away from this stuff as possible. But I also know that regardless, this is (and will continue to be) very popular, so allow me to put in a companion piece for the below trailer. Because if we're going to put warning MORE

Guardians of the Galaxy’s James Gunn reveals alternate ending

James Gunn

Have you seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet? The answer is YES, YES YOU HAVE because it's the biggest movie of the year in North America, so mathematically speaking, you probably have. And also it's a Marvel movie, and everyone knows that you are required by law to watch all Marvel Universe movies. Anyway, since you already know how the movie ends, let's take a look at some of the alternate endings to the movie that you can soon watch on the MORE

Kathy Griffin might really be heading to ‘Fashion Police’

Kathy Griffin and Joan Rivers / Fashion Police

It's always super awkward when a show loses a main star–for the sake of the rest of the cast and crew, the show must go on (if the ratings are good), but the absence will remain. Such is the case with Fashion Police, which must now soldier on without the presence of the legendary Joan Rivers. Thankfully, they're doing the smart thing by continuing with the blessing from Joan's daughter Melissa Rivers, and attempting to get Kathy Griffin to MORE

#AMAZING: Jinkx Monsoon covers Radiohead’s “Creep”

Jinkx Monsoon "Creep"

While the rest of the web talks about Kim Kardashian balancing a champagne flute on her ass (which, despite her protestations, doesn't require any talent. I should know: I can balance a champagne flute on my ass too, and lord knows I have zero talent), let's talk about something far less depressing: Jinkx Monsoon covered Radiohead's "Creep" on her record, The Inevitable Album, and she just released the music video–it's AMAZING. I don't mean MORE

Jared Leto–The Joker? Margot Robbie–Harley Quinn?

Jared Leto and Margot Robbie

One of the benefits of dating a massive comic book geek (and also a Star Wars geek, a Star Trek geek, and a Disney geek. The list goes on, but you know, rule of threes.) is that the two of you get to enable each others' nerdiness. Case in point: We've both agreed that Harley Quinn is our favorite comic book character of all time, to the point where we named our dog after her. And now she's finally going to make it to the big screen in the MORE

Box Office: Holding out for a (Big) Hero (6)

Big Hero 6

I know next to nothing about Big Hero 6, other than it's about some sort of marshmallow robot superhero and I need to see it. Apparently, I'm not alone in my judgment because according to Box Office Mojo, it was the number one movie this weekend with a $56.2 Million haul. So look forward to your kids asking for marshmallow superhero toys for Christmas this year! They will sell out immediately and be impossible to find. Consider yourself fairly MORE

‘Toy Story 4′ is coming!

Toy Story 4

To be honest, when I saw Toy Story 3, I kind of assumed that it would be the final installment. How exactly do you follow up the toys facing down their own mortality in a horrible pit of fire? I mean, they lived, and they got some mini-movies and TV specials since, but that's a lot to follow up. But the good news is that not only is John Lasseter returning to direct Toy Story 4 (due out in June of 2017), but Rashida Jones and Will McCormack are MORE

First Look: ‘The Simpsons’ / ‘Futurama’ crossover!

The Simpsons and Futurama

So about a month back, FOX tried its hand at a Simpsons / Family Guy crossover, which ... I'm sure did very well ratings wise, but left me with a bitter taste in my mouth. Well, the good news is that they're getting back on the horse and trying again with a different, albeit more closely related pairing of The Simpsons and Futurama. Considering that Matt Groening is responsible for both, and that the humor and emotional aspects of each series MORE
