Let’s face it, the holidays are upon us and it means one (of many) things: mandatory Christmas-themed movie watching. Whether it’s with your family, a bunch of your girlfriends, or you alone with a glass of wine (we’ve all been there), inevitably you’re going to watch some sort of holiday film. Once you resign yourself to that fact, it’s just a matter of picking out the right movie… depending on your mood! Read more…
What’s Amanda Bynes up to now? Is Keri Russell single? And will the X-Men franchise keep going after X-Men: Days Of Future Past?
Back when NBC first announced its plans to air a live telecast of The Sound of Music, starring the charming but novice actress Carrie Underwood, there was a collective gasp in our office — except from me. I’m pretty sure that before tonight, I was the only person in the known universe who had never seen the Julie Andrews movie. So, while everyone else either avoided the show entirely or spent the evening begrudgingly comparing it to their childhood favorite, I took it upon myself to watch with unbiased eyes. And then proceeded to remember why it is that I never sat through the 1965 film in the first place. In case you’re deciding whether to cue up that DVR, here’s my take on the good, the bad and the snoozy of The Sound of Music Live:

Who doesn’t love a juicy biopic? It’s delicious getting a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of luminaries — but only when the casting works. The actor doesn’t even have to look exactly like the icon being portrayed, as long as the performance is genius, we’re all in (hello, Ali and Mommie Dearest). But more often than not, biopic casting goes way off the rails. Lindsay Lohan and her plumped-up lips as Elizabeth Taylor? Travesty! Teenybopper-voiced Jennifer Love Hewitt as the luminous Audrey Hepburn? Unfathomable. Colin Farrell mincing about in blonde highlights as Alexander the Great? We’re giggling just thinking about it.
After sending DC purists into a frenzy this summer by casting Ben Affleck as Batman, Zach Synder‘s Man of Steel sequel just made another major announcement. Israeli actress Gal Gadot will play Wonder Woman in the upcoming flick, which combines the worlds of Batman and Superman.

In addition to acting, she’s an accomplished model who was crowned Miss Israel back in 2004.
