The revered auteurs died within hours of each other, in their homes–Bergman was 89, Antonioni 94. Both men were acclaimed fixtures of European art house cinema in the 60s and 70s, and both continued to […]

Movies The battle of the summer blockbuster threequels has ended in a stalemate… for now. Last month’s Spider-Man 3, Shrek the Third, and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End all grossed massive amounts of money in their respective opening weekends–an impressive feat, given that there was no more than ten days between each release. […]

Television Televangelist Ted Haggard announced a couple weeks ago that he is now “completely heterosexual” just weeks after being caught with a male prostitute. According to Haggard, it only took just three weeks of religious counseling to get him off the cock forever. When asked for a statement as to why he decided to commit […]

Television Isaiah Washington says the word “faggot” backstage at the Golden Globes and the entire western world throws a hissy fit (no pun intended). Not only did he not use the word in a discriminatory context (we all saw the video on YouTube), but he also wasn’t the one who started a media frenzy about […]

Television A special tribute to George Clooney aired on AMC two weeks ago, despite the fact that George doesn’t even have a dozen films under his belt. It was quite humorous to watch the same clips over and over, as they didn’t have much to show for montages. The show got a little brighter though […]

Television Michael Richards is a racist, but apparently that’s the way to go. His star has never shined brighter, even during his Seinfeld days. I really hope Frasier calls a Mexican a “wet back” soon so people will pay attention to him again. Not to mention Mel Gibson is still out there fussing about the […]

Television Actor T.R. Knight (George of Grey’s Anatomy) came out of the closet last week despite no one asking him to in the first place. Gee, I thought he was just a loser who couldn’t get any women. Now he’s a loser who can’t get any men. Taking a cue from Knight, former Doogie Howser […]
