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?
If you're looking for a way to spend time with family members without actually interacting with them, do as you did on those dates back in high school: go to a movie. There are plenty of feel-good flicks conveniently released for the holiday season, but here are a few films that might have flown under your radar and are definitely worth your attention.
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.
Between Harry Potter, Bridesmaids, and what will now be known as the Ryan Gosling 2011 Breakout Year Film Collection, this was a phenomenal year for the movies. I laughed, I cried, and I regretted buying a $6 soda all at the movie theater this year.
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.
I cannot express how excited I am for the new Muppet movie coming out on November 23rd. What's even more exciting is that Jason Segel co-wrote it and is starring along side our favorite furry characters.
I’m a pop culture junkie who just graduated from college, moved to LA and rediscovered the magic of television. Because seriously, who has time to keep up with the Kardashians—or any of our favorite celebrities—amidst midterms, internships, rush week and grad school applications? Well from now on, I’m gonna make sure that you do.
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 first time I tuned into ABC Family was years and years ago. Other channels had been showing previews for an ABC Family drama about a girl and a horse. Still heartbroken over the loss of my beloved Caitlin’s Way (they totally stole the plotline!), I decided to give Wildfire a try.
It might be because I spend too much time in the realm of fiction (reading novels, watching movies, obsessing over tv), but I've been known to spend more than my fair share of time considering the pros and cons of men that don't actually exist. The good. The bad. What they do right. What they do wrong. Why I can't actually meet the men that Carrie Bradshaw dated.
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.
Everyone loves a good movie quote. Here's lookin at you kid. Tomorrow is another day. If you build it he will come. I love lamp. They work their way into our lives and our vocabulary without us even realizing it.
Lifetime movies, like eating frosting out of the tub with a spoon, are one of those guilty pleasures we all indulge in that only our closet friends know about. However, let's be real: we all love watching those cheesy movies that our favorite D-list actors star in to revive their long-lost careers. And tonight's newest addition, 'Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy' is no exception.
HAPPY OFFICIAL FIRST DAY OF WINTER! It’s hard to remember when you're spending half of your day bundling up in the thickest, warmest, heaviest things you own just to walk outside to get the mail, but it's is the most wonderful time of the yearrrrrrrr! Yes, really.
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.
December is the month of holiday parties and family get-togethers. The people are cheerful, the cities are festive, and everyone is in a fabulous mood. But sometimes, sometimes, you just want to get away from all of that holiday cheer and see someone blow something up. And that’s why holiday movie releases exist.
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.

There are a lot of perks to experiencing Halloween as a college student, that’s a given. But remember Halloween as a little kid? When you looked forward to more than the drinking games and the slutty sexy costumes?
When you're little you always hear "Wait till your older" from piercing your ears to getting your first pair of heels to sending your very first sext. However, once you hit adolescence, it seems like you're constantly told to "act your age" or that you're "too old for" something. Just because you're in college doesn't mean you can't bask in things from the past ... Here are ten things you are definitely never too old for.
Common wisdom should tell you that movies and clubs are great places to take a first date. don't take your first date to any of the following places. But sometimes where you are and what you're doing plays a key role in whether things go well or not. However if you want to start a potential relationship off on the right foot, don't take your date to any of the following places.
We know. It's a three-day weekend and you have yet to get out of your pajamas. Heck, you have yet to even get out of bed. That's cool with us. That's why sweats were invented. And actually, if we had our way, you wouldn't get out of bed all day. Because we have an insanely awesome round-up of links from our very favorite people on the web. Yeah that's right. We're giving you another excuse to stay in elastic-waistband pants all day.
Who doesn't love a good summer blockbuster? On those dreary, rainy summer days, sometimes all you want to do is head to your local movie theater with some friends (or the bf) and shove popcorn in your face while Leonardo DiCaprio confuses you entertains you for 2.5 hours.
