Sundays Are For Procrastinating: Movies I’m Excited For

I live in NYC, and my crippling fear of bedbugs prevents me from going to see the movies. Which means I haven't gone to a movie in a long time. But this summer I'm heading home to visit my family in a town where no one has ever gotten bedbugs. So in honor of my summer of freedom, here are the trailers from a few movies that I can't wait to see.

8 Ways to Celebrate Your Snow Day Like an 8 Year Old

Here in NYC, we've had a strangely warm winter. For the most part, it's been pretty great. Who could complain about sunshine and temperatures in the 50s and 60s during winter? But there is one sad part – no snow. And even worse, there's rain. Few things are more depressing than cold winter rain.

Sundays Are For Procrastinating: Best Movie Dance Scenes

I'm a dancer, so you can bet that the second anyone starts to dance in a movie, I'm paying attention. Sometimes I go on YouTube binges where I spend hours and hours looking at dance videos. But I don't just enjoy watching videos of professional dancers onstage – I love movie dance scenes, too. And believe it or not, great dancing pops up in unexpected places.

New Year’s Eve Is Overrated

New Year’s Eve Is Overrated

New Year's Eve is seriously THE most overrated holiday of the year. Valentine's Day is the day that all lazy boyfriends have to get up off their asses and remind their girlfriends why they should stick around, and Halloween is the night to dress up like someone else and make out with someone whose face you don't ever really want to see. So why celebrate NYE?

Jason Segel and Emily Blunt in ‘The Five-Year Engagement’

Oh, god. Who needs yet another romantic comedy the world? Is it seriously necessary to make every member the single girl society feel horrible about themselves and feed today’s tweens with more unrealistic expectations about love? Well, The 'Five-Year Engagement' stars Jason Segel and Emily Blunt. And it’s from the same filmmakers that enlightened us all with 'Bridesmaids,' 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' and 'Knocked Up.' I take back everything I just said—this movie is COMPLETELY necessary.

What We Could Do With Breaking Dawn Ticket Sales

Breaking Dawn came out on Thursday night and in it's four-day span in the box office, it's already earned $140 million. Now, I know Twilight is really awesome to Twilight fans, and I used to be one. But I simply can't bear seeing Kristen Stewart be awkward anymore, and it still bums me out that Robert Pattinson has forgotten his Harry Potter roots.

The 10 Best Girl’s Night Movies

Picking the perfect film for a girl's night always comes down to how you want the party to go. Comforting a friend with a broken heart? Avoid the dramas and rom-coms. All the girls feeling stressed due to boys, bills, and work? I recommend a Disney classic. Feeling nostalgic? Anything 80s or anything that was released when we were in high school.

The good. The bad. What they do right. What they do wrong. Why I can't actually meet the men that Carrie Bradshaw dated.

7 Reasons Why You Should Grab You Girlfriends and Go See Bridesmaids

7 Reasons Why You Should Grab You Girlfriends and Go See Bridesmaids

Now, normally I'm a tough movie critic, especially when it comes to movies which target women. Often those movies are predictable, one dimensional, and full of supposedly comedic moments which tend to fall flat. So when I went to see Bridesmaids, one of the most anticipated female movies in a long time, I was hopeful but also skeptical.

The holiday season, I’ve come to realize, is all about the traditions. Baking cookies. Listening to festive music. Wrapping presents. Eating way too much in a way too short an amount of time. Shopping for days. Decorating. It wouldn’t be Christmas without all of it. But really, probably my favorite Christmas tradition is the endless Christmas movies.

Web Spy: GoFobo

Web Spy: GoFobo

The rising cost of tickets in past few years has turned what used to be a typical Friday night activity into more of a special-occasion-only event. Movie tickets can cost up to about $15 these days, which is way more than most college students can afford to shell out on a weekly basis. Just when I was getting used to the idea of rarely going out to the movies (except for Harry Potter, of course), I heard about Gofobo.

Those boys are just so...perfect.
