I really admired Les Miserables. No, it's not perfect--there are too many crying, singing closeups--but I still found it astonishingly done, the first great movie musical since Chicago.
But as you know, it's been dividing people more than anything since Coke Zero.
Here's what someone on the All Th ... More >>
American Idol personality Adam Lambert feels the movie of Les Miserables is more than a near Mis.
It made him crazy!
"Visually impressive with great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers. It's an opera. Hollywood's mov ... More >>
This week's column is a riotous romp with Billy Eichner, the gay comic who became known for Billy on the Street segments where he accosted New Yorkers and asked them things like "Is Brad Pitt the kind of white guy you'd like to fuck?" and "Rachael Ray is like a little demon stuck inside a goat."

The stunning Yuhua Hamasaki (above) won the coveted Miss Fire Island prize at the Ice Palace the other day, even though her first name sounds like an accusation.
Sultry Monica Storm copped Ms. Fire Island (for older, larger gals), Dallas DuBois was named Miss Cherry Grove, and Holly Dae won Enterta ... More >>
Far away, in a place known to some as "La-La Land," the region's princes and princesses are preparing for a big magical celebration. Yeah, no.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 begins as Harry, Ron, and Hermione continue their quest of finding and destroying the Dark Lord's three remaining Horcruxes.

I took it verbatim off IMDb.
I never have any idea what's going on in these Harry P ... More >>
You had us at beard. At Refinery 29's Oscar Viewing Party at the W Hotel in Union Square last night, we waited eagerly to be wowed by the celebs on the red carpet. Alas, that moment never came. We mostly shrugged, "meh"ed, and nodded. Not even Helena Bonham Carter, whose eccentricity has kept ... More >>
Ok, get this, kids.
The worst sitcom ever--except for My Mother The Car--has become James Franco's obsession to the point where he's threatening to take it to the stage and/or big screen.
You see, Franco just did a Three's Company-related art installation, and the original show's creators w ... More >>
Last night's Golden Globes were...weird. They were sad, they were awkward, they were kind of bleak and sinister, like a cocktail party gone on way too long, till everyone's smiles are forced and dresses rumpled. The Social Network did well, winning four awards, as did Glee, which took home th ... More >>
Last night was the midnight premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. Curious about the pointy hat/bathrobe/nerdliness count in this first of the last book in the series, we sent intern Myles to go check things out. What he found, however, was actually kinda fun, and even a li ... More >>

Firth is the favorite to win right now, especially since he was so good in A Single Man last ye ... More >>
Either The King's Speech or The Social Network.
Neither has officially opened yet, but people are saying that The King's Speech, a Weinstein brothers historical epic with Colin Firth as King George VI and Helena Bonham Carter as Queen Elizabeth, is a wow, while David Fincher's The Soci ... More >>

The combination of feverishly imaginative arrested child Tim Burton and the wry cartoons of Charles Addams are such a perfect fit it's a wonder it took so long for Burton to direct a 3-D stop-action animated movie of The Addams Family (not to be confused with the musical version currently on ...
