Stan by your man: 15 depictions of obsessive fandom
The third single from The Marshall Mathers LP earned Eminem some of the highest praise of his career, but back when "Stan" was grabbing VMA nominations and giving a three-year-old Dido single a piggyback ride up the charts, who would've guessed the song's lasting legacy would be lexicographical? "Stan" is literally…

Marc Maron has some thoughts about newbie Conan O'Brien being named a podcasting pioneer
Look, Conan O'Brien Needs A Friend is a really good podcast, okay? All 30-plus episodes of the late-night legend's first foray into the "no makeup, no hair" world of online celebrity chit-chat are genuinely funny, thoughtful, and filed with the sort of loose, faux-fraught banter (among Conan, assistant Sona Movsesian,…

This week in Savage Love: Quickies
I took Molly with my best bud. We wound up cuddling and telling each other everything. We didn't mess around—we're both straight guys—but one of the things I told him is that I would much rather eat pussy than fuck, and one of the things he told me is that he's not at all into eating pussy and pretty much only likes…

Pose's second season finale serves romance, drama, and spectacle
Pose's triumphant finale doesn't tie up all the storylines from its second season (hello, does Elektra still have a dissolved body in her closet?), but it hits all the right emotional beats for the show, bringing a season that took a lot of big swings—not all of which hit their target—to a head and sharply refocusing…

Remember the good times with 4 extra minutes of Spider-Man: Far From Home footage
Sony and Marvel Studios may be breaking up, with Sony taking full custody of the Spider-Man movies and all of the money they've been bringing in, but we'll always have the memories. Remember when Spider-Man took Captain America's shield, and he was like "I'm from Queens, you're from Brooklyn, Empire Strikes Back is an…

Why the Coors Light "bra ad" is groundbreaking
There's currently a beer commercial known as "the bra ad."

The new dogs from Disney 's live-action Lady And The Tramp sure look like dogs
Disney has been absolutely stuffing the box office lately with live-action (or "live-action") remakes of its classic animated films, but at least one animated classic evidently does warrant the big-screen revival that Aladdin and The Lion King recently got. Last March, the company announced that it was putting…

It's always tempting, when someone asks how you've been, to tell them the truth. It's something I think about a lot, and it's what Agent Tench does to Agent Ford when Ford presumes to lecture the older agent during their investigation of the Atlanta Child Murders. To be fair, Tench is popping in and out of the…

The world of superhero movies just got a lot less friendly: Not long after Spider-Man: Far From Home became the highest-grossing Sony film of all time, the studio has rejected a plan from Marvel Studios that would've made them co-producers on future Spider-Man movies, effectively kicking Disney out of the Spidey…

Jacob's new Ladder only goes down, into the pits of crappy remake hell
Though it died a pretty swift death at the box office in the fall of 1990, Adrian Lyne's hallucinatory horror freakout Jacob's Ladder has gone on to a better place, climbing to an afterlife of cult fandom. Written by Joel Bruce Rubin, whose script sat on the Hollywood blacklist for a solid decade, the film fancied…

Holy crap, Lana Wachowski is directing a new Matrix sequel starring Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss
As it turns out, those denials of a new Matrix sequel were every bit as much of an illusion as that damned spoon. Variety brings the rather surprising news that Lana Wachowski—one-half of the duo behind the original trilogy—is returning to direct a fourth installment in The Matrix series.

Elizabeth Debicki brings what passion she can to the banal biopic romance of Vita & Virginia
Taking on a role for which one of the world's most famous actors has won an Oscar—not all that long ago, even—has to be mighty intimidating. It didn't work out so well for Julianne Moore as the new Clarice Starling in Hannibal, but Moore eventually received a gold statuette of her own, and so may Elizabeth Debicki,…
