Where Have All The Chick Flicks Gone?

Published by

chick-flicks-la-11-15-13
Chick flicks are a dying breed of cinema. Every year we have less and less movies about women, and not just romantic comedies, but any kind of movie that specifically targets the female audience that isn't in a training bra. Chick flicks, whether comedy or not, are rarely being made these days, and not because they don't make money – they do, and a lot – but because Hollywood...

Paul Feig Once Tried To Get The 'Wonder Woman' Movie Off The Ground

Published by

At this point it appears as if a Wonder Woman movie will never see the light of day, or at least that'll be the case for this decade. So many filmmakers have tried their best to bring this project off the ground, but none have been able to succeed so far. Bridesmaids filmmaker Paul Feig tried his shot at the Amazonian princess at one point, but it just...

Top 5 Best Female Duos In Film

Thelma-and-Louise-la-6-27-13
Bromances are extremely popular, but for some reason, Hollywood doesn't seem all that invested in tales about female friendship, unless of course, there's some canoodling involved. Heck, there's not even a term for this genre, though some have tried labeling it as "womance" or "ho-mance." But this type of movie may soon gain a label, especially with The Heat, which stars Sandra...

Kristen Wiig Says No to Bridesmaids 2

Published by

Bridesmaids: The Gang's All Here!
It's a tale as old as time: if a film makes a ton of money, they're going to try to make a sequel - regardless if the film needs it. Bridesmaids made almost $170 Million at the box office, and there have been rumors about a sequel. Star and co-writer Kristen Wiig shot that down for now when she spoke to E! Online and said they're not planning one. Perhaps she saw...

ScreenCrave's Top 20 Films of 2011

Published by

Top20Filmsof2011
2011 was the year of the indie. The majority of adaptations and blockbusters all fell completely flat, and numerous big studio dramas were missing that something special. Normally I'm one to say that every year is a great year, but this is no There Will be Blood Vs. No Country for Old Men, or even Moon Vs. Inglourious Bastards. That being said, the end of...

Published by

Kate Winslet
The 69th annual Golden Globes nominees have been announced, and this year they're big on definite articles. The Help, The Artist and The Descendents lead the pack of nominees. Which is interesting because - if the Globes have a weakness - it's that they chase the famous names, and these noms aren't that celeb-heavy....

As much as it can be fun to hate on rom-coms/wedding movies (they're just so cliched and by the numbers), there's something about Bridesmaids that makes it feel a little bit more unique than all the rest. It feels as if it is stepping just enough outside of the box to be interesting to more than just 18-35 year-old spinsters needing to cry in a theater. The reviews...
