50 Cultural Icons on What They Were Like as Teenagers

It’s hard out there for a teenager. It’s even kind of hard out there for those of us who used to be teenagers — especially in these back-to-school months, when the nostalgia comes creeping up like those floods we used to wear and never, ever should again. But you know who was probably even stranger than you in high school? Your favorite cultural icon. Or maybe not — as is only to be expected, some had joyful (and/or prank-filled) teenage years, some suffered tragedies, some were completely weird, some were popular, and some deserve our respect for even getting through.

Considering Tim Burton, Hollywood’s Most Disappointing Auteur

There’s a new Tim Burton trailer in the world, and that means it’s time for one of the film fan’s favorite biyearly rituals: choosing up sides between “Ugh, Tim Burton” and “Maybe it’ll be a return to form!” His new film, Big Eyes, is based on the true story of painter Margaret Keane (Amy Adams) and her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz), who claimed credit for her work.

But it’s not like the cult of Smith — and increasingly, over the past two years, that’s exactly what he’s sculpted his remaining fans into — was going to discourage its fearless leader from making a movie if he wanted to. And, for their trouble, he’s made a movie that they will surely devour without question. I’m just not sure where the hell that leaves the rest of us, because Tusk is a mess. … Read More
