Last week, Entertainment Weekly published a list of the 50 Greatest Movies You’ve Never Seen from the past two decades. Stars like Ryan Gosling, Kate Winslet, and Emily Blunt chose several of the selections.

According to executive producer Dan Weiss, “If we didn’t have Richard Madden on the show, teenage girls everywhere would abandon us en masse.” While he doesn’t confirm that the plotline will involve nude scenes, he does promise that “at least one returning character getting naked for the first time.” … Read More
Today at Flavorpill, we wondered why Daniel Craig is giving Rooney Mara a piggyback ride on the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly (seriously, we only imagine Lisbeth Salander being OK with that scenario if it was reversed). We thought that having the Muppets host the Oscars was a great idea… Read More

Today at Flavorpill, we cracked up over this video of Michel Gondry’s son Paul beatboxing. We considered revisiting third grade math with these funny multiplication wall decals.
