It's hard and tedious, the day-to-day rightblogger work of promoting impeachment, stirring racial enmity, scrambling for a position that can encompass both a desire to bomb Syria and a desire to thwart Obama, and so on. Their traditional relief valve has been culture war -- shaking fists at some r ... More >>
SPOILER ALERT! I'm going to give away some lines from Sacha Baron Cohen's new spoof, The Dictator, about a genocidal Wadiyan nitwit who learns some values in Brooklyn. You should see the movie--it's fun--so consider this giveaway a naughty little appetizer tray.
At a press conference at the Waldorf-Astoria yesterday, General Aladeen--aka Sacha Baron Cohen in The Dictator--unsurprisingly backed Mitt Romney for Prez. Explained the General: "He'd make a great dictator. He's incredibly wealthy but pays no taxes. And it's not much of a leap from firing people ... More >>
Those two screen icons are perched high atop the GoldDerby.com experts' predictions for who will get Razzie nominations for Worst Actress of 2011.

Michael Bay shoots the moon
Harlem's finest are back, but Cam'ron's new protégé might steal the spotlight
With more than 250 films to see, there is no one, definitive festival experience. Here's mine.
I passed by the large Pop Tarts World emporium on 42nd Street the other day and noticed that the place, opened over a month, seemed as empty as my mind during a Megan Fox movie. The store sells Pop Tarts (you know, those tasty toaster pastries that doubled our childhood weights, but delightf ... More >>
Everyone knew it was coming. It was just a matter of time before film criticism's reigning anti- anti- anti- king, Mr. Counterintuitive himself, chimed in. He's "a troll," in the words of Roger Ebert, who once tried to defend Armond White, this peculiar man, only to take it all back. He's "sm ... More >>
The other Number 9Number 9The Maxim Hot 100 List is out. Yeah, we've been waiting for this all year! Not only that, but the Good Surgeon's Guide to the Top 10 Worst Celebrity Faces came out last week. And since we are connoisseurs of both beauty and hideousness here at Runnin' Scared, ... More >>
On this wonderful morning, take a minute to imagine what it would be like to be so foreign and so out of touch that you scrambled to hire a big-time publicist to fight rumors started about you on Facebook. Then, close your eyes for a second and think about what it would be like to look like Chris ... More >>
Hey, all you single gals! Finding it hard to get a date in the city? Tired of spending lonely nights weeping into your Chubby Hubby ice cream (so harsh, that name!) watching Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (there are two, you know) and confabbing with your gal pals about whether you're actually an ...

The surest signs of spring are upon us: flowers blooming, scantily clad NYU students smoking in the park, and most importantly, coworkers who have never showed any semblance of sports fandom live-streaming basketball for the next two weeks and yelling at their computers things like "Cinderella!" "B ... More >>
"This Celine Dion interview on Oprah is making me GAG like I have John Mayer's David Duke in my mouth!" tweets bevysmith. She refers to John Mayer's Playboy interview, in which he says a bunch of weird shit, like "My dick is sort of like a white supremacist." He does aver that "I'm going to ... More >>
Tina Fey (pictured) reveals that she "couldn't give it away" -- meaning her virginity -- when she was a young lass, prompting respected journalistic organization ABC News to run a slide show of "Stars' Sexperiences." You would imagine these Sexperiences would be calculated to include simila ... More >>
The email scribblings of someone covering the Toronto Film Festival were somehow forwarded to me as if by magic--or maybe it's just more spam--and it's my journalistic duty to pass them on to you, by way of an insider's report card that's leakable to the entire world. And so, dear readers:
In honor of 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, we've invited SOTC buddies and pop savants Sean Fennessey and Ryan Dombal to lend a certain wisdom and perspective to these sure-to-be completely dignified proceedings. Gentleman? John Shearer 9:00pm Sean: We're coming to you live from one or two or ... More >>
This must be the real Megan Fox's Twitter feed. For one thing, it starts on July 9 -- not long after realmfox shut down. "I just made a twitter !," says meggannnfox. "Yes this is me :) So can anyone tell me how this works ?" Doesn't that sound just like her? Also, it's full of pictures of Megan Fox ... More >>
The MPAA have announced they'll nominate 10 rather than five Best Picture nominees next year, and the commentary has flown thick and fast. Each side has a point: Pro: Fans point out that in early years the Oscars frequently named ten or more nominees at a time. The fabled 1939 crop, for example, i ... More >>
"I met Carla from Bravo's Top Chef -- I was rooting for her the whole season long." Twitpic by drschefcick. Paul McCartney will play Citi Field, which makes sense, since neither he nor the Mets have been any good since the 1980s. The "Bike in Style" Challenge had FIT students "create stylish, p ... More >>
As giant robots transform all around us (!), it's good to know Michael Bay won't ever change
