If you go based off of the trailer you can tell that Suicide Squad is a movie not only meant to have the villains portrayed as the heroes but to have them become just as popular as the heroes. DC might be able to pull such a feat off thanks to the characters they’ve chosen to highlight as well as the actors chosen to portray them. If you aren’t all ready hyped here are some reasons you should be. Continue reading

Women are bombarded with images of motherhood and it all starts during childhood. From the very first stuffed animal tucked into our beds at night to watching our own moms make the impossible happen, women are taught that mothers “do it all” with little to no effort. It’s easy, flawless, and natural, we’re told. As we become adults, some of us become conditioned to this ideal. Continue reading
Former Disney channel star and current member of Taylor Swift’s squad, Selena Gomez, turns 24 today. Since our love for celeb culture started young with boy bands, our first Teen People magazine subscription, and Disney Channel Original Movies that eventually starred the birthday girl herself, we figured it’s only appropriate to celebrate with a roundup of our all-time favorite DCOMs. Permission granted to take a break from whatever political piece you’re reading or more important task you’re completing and join us on this quick stroll down memory lane.

Today marks Colin Farrell’s 40th birthday. As a fellow Irish person – and self-confessed fan of his – I thought it was only fair to pay tribute to him.
The Dublin-born actor has been no stranger to the headlines in the past, with his various addictions to drugs, booze, and women. But in recent years, he has nearly disappeared from gossip columns completely, opting instead for a more private life, all the while, still maintaining his reputation as a respected actor.
While we’re all about scrolling through new movie releases most Saturday nights, or heading to the theater – if for no other reason than the buttery popcorn – we still have a sentimental draw to our childhood favorites. We’re talking the ones we watched so many times that it would have made more sense to buy the VHS than to hit up the same Blockbuster aisle again. Continue reading
Growing up, I was never interested in Audrey Hepburn.
Not that I assumed her to be a terrible person. It just that there was something about the way women were seemingly obsessive about her just turned me off (I blame the non-conformist in me.) I never watched her films or knew much about her background but I just never delved too much into her life. I was very stand-offish.
And then the weirdest thing happened a few years ago: everyone kept giving me Audrey Hepburn gifts.
