Our Favorite Celebrity Halloween Costumes of 2014

They can hide behind publicists and stylists to invent a compelling persona, but the true test of celebrity creativity, individuality, and personality is the Halloween costume. After a long night of sugary, boozy celebrations, we perused the Internet to see how our pop culture favorites made out during this year’s spooky season. See who channeled the fashion world, wore wings, went meta, and made us scratch our heads, below. We’ll be adding to the list as more pics come to light on this post-Halloween morn. … Read More

David Fincher’s ‘Gone Girl': Top-Shelf Mystery and Pitch-Black Comedy

David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl opens not with an abduction or a murder, but with Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck), in voice-over, talking about his wife’s head. “I picture cracking her lovely skull, unspooling her brains,” he says, over a close-up of the cranium in question. “Trying to get answers: What are you thinking? What are you feeling? What have we done to each other?” This is how the movie begins; this is what it’s about. Gone Girl may come advertised as a thriller, but that’s Fincher being a trickster—he’s gone and made the curtest, nastiest, most acidic black comedy about the marital accord since The War of the Roses. … Read More

25 Must-See Movies For the Fall

Hey there reader, been to the movies lately? If the box office reports are any indication, I’m guessing not — and who can blame you? We’re currently in the weird dead zone between the tentpole blockbusters of the summer and the prestige, Oscar-friendly pictures (and, increasingly, tentpole blockbusters) of the fall. But relief will be here soon enough, so in the interest of helping you mark up your movie-going calendar, we’re looking ahead to the fall films we’re anticipating most. … Read More

The Best Celebrity Instagrams from the 2014 Tony Awards

As you may or may not have heard, depending on how many musical theatre nerds you know, the 2014 Tony Awards happened last night.

The Best Moments From the 2014 Tony Awards

There was a lot of television to choose from last night: a beauty pageant, a big battle on Game of Thrones, and even, I’m told, some basketball game. But if you’re like me, you enjoyed a liter of white wine and the Tony Awards, the annual celebration of a relatively minor industry within New York that is broadcast on national television to millions who will likely never see any of the shows featured or even know who most of the people in attendance actually are. But, on the plus side, Broadway for once looked a lot less whitewashed than usual! … Read More

Dear Seth MacFarlane: Quit Your Day Job

The reviews are in for Seth MacFarlane’s new comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West, and they’re not pretty. But comedy is unpredictable — the best ones sneak up on you, and your film editor found himself laughing fairly frequently at MacFarlane’s Western send-up, which is something of a surprise, since I loathe Seth MacFarlane. I’m not sure I’ve ever managed to sit through an entire episode of Family Guy (to say nothing of its even-less-inspired knock-offs American Dad or The Cleveland Show), and he was one of the worst Oscar hosts in recent memory (which is one stiff competition). But his first feature film, Ted, was an unexpectedly likable and funny piece of summer fluff, and while his new film doesn’t quite measure up to that one, it confirms that he’d be wise to continue on the filmmaking path. Particularly if it means less time spent making terrible television shows. … Read More
