And Now a Word from Our Sponsor

David Macaray | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
When I was a kid, I naively believed that the actors and actresses "owned" the TV shows and theatrical movies in which they appeared. I actually believed that John Wayne owned The Searchers, Burt Lancaster owned Elmer Gantry, and Lorne Greene, Michael Landon, Dan Blocker, et al, owned Bonanza. ...

Helen I. Hwang | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
The Ninth Cloud, the latest film from Zurich-based American director Jane Spencer, leaves an indelible imprint of lovely, surreal snippets on the audience, full of beautiful quirkiness.

Unifier Festival in Tolland, Massachusetts

Morena Duwe | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
When like-minded individuals gather together for the sake of unity, anything is possible. Ideas are forged, relationships are born, bonds are strengthened, and the world changes. With so many festivals these days, it becomes difficult to discern which ones are for profit, which...

Grey's Anatomy Recap: RIP McDreamy in 'How to Save a Life'

Karen Fratti | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
Is anyone else sort of embarrassed about how sad they are about Derek? Last night was tough and after having rewatched it again, I can tell you: don't do it. It's just as awful. So, let's have a Twitter memorial

The Bruce Jenner Story Is Good News

Annie Chagnot | April 24, 2015 | Gay Voices
The discussion about whether Bruce Jenner is transitioning has me feeling simultaneously hopeful and deeply uncomfortable. Uncomfortable because, as a daughter of a "transparent," the tabloid tone of ridicule with which the speculation has been presented recalls the cruel words I heard behind my back growing up.

A Binky Book Review: 'Pretend You're in a War -- The Who and The Sixties' by Mark Blake

Binky Philips | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
That title comes from an early Pete Townshend interview. It was his answer to the question, How do you prepare yourself to go on stage with The Who?

The Evolution of Lana Del Rey

Summer Noblé | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
Whether you like her music or not, she's made a name for herself and has an astronomical following to prove it. But what makes her music so addicting to the thousands of diehard LDR fans? Well I can tell you it isn't just the sound.

Cinderella and The Hunting Ground

Trish Kinney | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
You might say that rape on college campuses is the subject of the documentary, The Hunting Ground, but it is more about how far major institutions will go to protect their reputation, image and financial position.

ReThink Review: Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck - The Man Inside the Wail

Jonathan Kim | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
It's difficult to imagine a documentary about Kurt Cobain that could be more thorough, intimate, and definitive than Montage of Heck, which has more than enough rare and exclusive material that will surely be new to even the most obsessive Nirvana completist.

Penn Badgley on MOTHXR: "We Earn No Money Right Now"

Nora Oravecz | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
Cool vibes, cool venue, down-to-earth guys -- that's how I could describe the night when I met with the band called, MOTHXR. I wish I could meet with some more bands who are like them.

Movie Review: Ex Machina -- Mechanical

Marshall Fine | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
Ex Machina is both tastily minimal and frustratingly simplistic. Alex Garland's directing debut (he wrote 28 Days Later and Sunshine) is, in essence, a three-hander about three people in a house. OK, a high-tech mansion, but you get the point.

My Big Bang Theory

Neal Wooten | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
I now realize why I love the show. Maybe it was finding myself glued to the TV every Thursday night that finally made things click. The Big Bang Theory is my favorite show because it's a twist on my old favorite show.

Faith No More Back With Vigor

Jose Martinez | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
Rock band Faith No More has never been known for its subtlety. Even in quiet, almost introspective moments, there's a layer of darkness and angst that gives way to a razor sharp, if not borderline perverse, sense of humor.

Switcheroo? It Feels Like I'm On Vacation!

Ido Bendet-Taicher | April 24, 2015 | Parents
As most couples do, my husband Eli and I have come up with our own way of sharing responsibilities and defining roles. Part of it was naturally developed throughout the years, whereas for the rest of it, well, we simply sat down and split the load based on preferences, strengths, and for the undesired chores such as laundry... we just flipped a coin.

Drea de Matteo Joins Cruelty Free International Campaign to End Cosmetics Testing on Animals

Monica Engebretson | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
Shopping cruelty free is also often a family affair, with conscientious shoppers actively looking for products that are not tested on animals for themselves as well as for their kids and companion animals.

Tavis Smiley | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
Tonight, I'm joined by Jack Black, one of this generation's most beloved comedic actors. The star of hit films like School of Rock and Kung Fu Panda currently has his hands in multiple projects, including the upcoming HBO series The Brink.

Total Rubbish: A Chat with Monty Python's Eric Idle, Plus ASCAP, Scott James and Scott Mickelson Exclusives

Mike Ragogna | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
EI: "It started out just being a BBC record of the highlights of the first series or maybe the first two series. We did it in front of a live audience and it was material that was pretty much familiar to us anyway."

Live from the Tribeca Film Festival: Wrapping Up

Marshall Fine | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
When I'm in New York, the Tribeca screenings have to get in line with all the other things on my calendar -- and most of those take precedence over spending Saturday or Sunday at a multiplex in Battery Park City watching films I probably wouldn't review even if they were released.

Theater: Not So 'Fun Home;' Dying With 'Living On Love'

Michael Giltz | April 24, 2015 | Entertainment
It's no fun not quite getting the rapture of others; who wants to miss out on a show everyone else is loving? So I was ready and eager to see it again at Circle In The Square. Maybe it would grow on me.

Why We Need to Keep the Activism of New Queer Cinema Alive

Matthew Wade | April 23, 2015 | Gay Voices
Yes, these contemporary films may be brilliant and present a diverse range of multi-layered gay characters, but they often focus on the monogamous, family-oriented love stories we typically see in mainstream heterosexual narratives. The queercore, rebellious spirit of New Queer Cinema films has slowly become overshadowed by the "ideal" of domesticity and conformity.
