So maybe you have a niece or a younger brother or a cousin or something with a birthday coming up, and you fancy yourself a cool, older role model, so you want to buy them something the kids love these days, like a Twilight book or a Hannah Montana or something? God, you are so stupid, that stuff hasn't been cool for months now. No, it's all about The Hunger Games, the über-bestselling young adult novel and movie adaptation, which began its methodical annihilation of all box-office challengers last night by taking in a staggering $19.7 million in midnight screenings last night. Like it didn't suck enough already to be the guys who made John Carter. More»
Everything James Franco does, from gender-bending photoshoots to reefer-soaked awards show emceeing, is part of a master plan to achieve the ultimate creative goal of a MacPEGOT (that's Tracy Morgan's infamous Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony quest with a MacArthur Genius Grant and a Pulitzer tacked on for good measure). So when it was reported that Franco's newest project, which began filming in Michigan, is a super-budgeted 3D Wizard Of Oz prequel directed by Sam "Spiderman 3" Raimi, you might find yourself a little confused.

Earlier this year, we brought you the thrilling eyewitness news of a mystery Paris Hilton in a cop cruiser sighting, deep in the heart in West Hollywood. At the time, we reported that we didn't know why Paris was seen riding in a WeHo cop car, then we told you that we heard she was filming a PSA as part of her court-ordered community service. But yesterday, we learned that we didn't have it quite right either time. As it turns out, Paris was filming a segment for a brand-new, celebrity-soaked documentary whose trailer premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. The subject? L.A.'s wildest, most legendary slice of road: The Sunset Strip. More»
Say, Ambular? How many jokes from Clueless do you get now that were totally over your head when you first saw it as a kid? In 1995, America fell in love with Cher even though she was a virgin who couldn't drive and pop culture owes many a catchphrase, hand gesture and tragic fashion trend to the film. Although on the surface a chick flick, it's actually a surprisingly clever and hilarious parody of L.A. teens based loosely off of Jane Austen's Emma. Set in Beverly Hills, many of the movie's references and situations hold a special significance for Angelenos. More»

via guestofaguest: With June gloom out of the way, and July finally starting off the official L.A. summer days, we are looking forward to days at the beach, nights out drinking and dancing, and filling the spaces between with cool air conditioned movie theaters. Let's hope someone writes a screenplay quick because they summer blockbusters are not looking too promising. MORE>>
via guestofaguest.com: A recent screening of Sex and the City II reminded us of something. Not another movie, but a person. More specifically, our dumbest friend. We all have one. She's dimmer than a burnt-out 20 watt light bulb, but she's our friend nonetheless. And just like our loyalty to her, we will stick by the SATC franchise to the painfully dumb bitter end. MORE>>
