Dare to show even the tiniest spark of interest in royal babies or movie star divorces or Olympic decathlete gender identity and you're likely to be scorned for engaging in "celebrity worship." This is wrong. It isn't worship. Got that, you high-minded righteous pious scoffers?

A Fashion Elite Turns out for 'The True Cost': A Documentary About What We Wear

On the high end, the weight of this problem is not heavy, particularly when production is responsive to workers' needs and safety; consumers do not buy as much as is needed to stay competitive in the "fast fashion" business model, where the poor are at risk of deplorable work conditions and low wages to keep churning out goods that no one really needs, and actually makes no one happy.

Right now, we're in a Jane Austen golden age - a brief window of history in which we have the time and resources to form good marriages (or marriage-like arrangements) and before the science fiction future makes relationships fantastically baroque.

It's one of those sleeper hits, kinda like how John Wick was last year, with a premise and plot so invariably silly and unbelievable that you say, oh wow, this is ridiculous and... kind of amazing?

When it comes to screen spies, 007 is the undisputed distance champion, and where the failed xXx franchise went wrong was in attempting to take the piss out of the old man without first earning that privilege.

Movie Review: Kingsman: The Secret Service -- Bloody Entertaining

Marshall Fine | Posted 04.14.2015 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

When James Bond rebooted with Daniel Craig in Casino Royale, the blend of old-school spy tale and modern-action sensibility seemed right -- if still a little restrained. Imagine now what would happen if James Bond were put in the hands of someone who was willing to not just rethink the secret-agent film but blow it up all together.

E. Nina Rothe

Everywhere I look in Florence, it seems that no self-respecting fashionist-o is going out without some tartan. The colors aren't the traditional Scottish blues, greens or reds and some may even be tempted to call it tweed, but I insist it's a new kind of tartan.

At age 12, my obliviousness was a survival instinct. As my peers experimented with make-up and clothes, I wore a sports bra to school, my hair frizzing into the stratosphere. Most days were spent doing what I loved best -- reading.

Woody Allen is up to his old tricks. Real ones, like pulling a rabbit out of a hat. In previous films he's played the magician role himself, but in Magic in the Moonlight he allows the dreamy Colin Firth to handle the willing suspension of disbelief.
