As I have many times in past years, I ventured up to Katonah, New York for a beautiful evening of singing at Caramoor's Summer Music Festival.

Not OK, Michael Bay: Transformers: Age of Extinction Sexually Objectifies an Underage Girl

Nikki Gloudeman

It's one thing for a movie to be bad -- and good lord, is Transformers: Age of Extinction bad. It's another for a movie to sanction 1) the sexual objectification of underage girls, 2) statutory rape, and 3) idiotic women who need strong men to save them.

We're here to talk about her tour, her music, her album. Her dog. Whatever. But first we talk about glitter.

I Fell in Love Slowly and Then All at Once With The Fault in Our Stars

Jenny Block | Posted 06.05.2014 | Entertainment
Jenny Block

The Fault in Our Stars is not a story about cancer. The Fault in Our Stars is a story about love. It's about the kind of love that most people only dream about, that very few find, and that those who have experienced will never forget.

Even fans, who Jackson's views and work ethic were intended to serve, treat him more as a commodity than an artist.

Karen Kilgariff Live at the Bootleg

Tony Bartolone | Posted 05.03.2014 | Comedy
Tony Bartolone

Karen Kilgariff is punk as fuck. In an industry of rock stars and actors constantly and consistently hiding any flaws to create a pretense of professionalism and perfection, Kilgariff takes the stage naked, highlighting her imperfections. She is a symbol of what is right about art and music and entertainment.

"If I could give one piece of advice to Christians and Muslims worldwide it would be that peace is possible, although it is not always profitable."

In Italy, as in many countries, assisted suicide is illegal. Yet thanks to the assistance of people like Honey, terminally ill people can die in a time and manner of their choosing. Honey is a sensitive, interesting movie. It's not depressing, but it is thought provoking.

Our sense is that True Detective will be as much about understanding what happened between Hart and Cohle as solving a murder. Because of the interviews, we know something about how things turn out. But that only makes it harder to work out.

August: Osage County. Why Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts Are Like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant

Tony Potts | Posted 03.12.2014 | Entertainment
Tony Potts

Don't get me wrong. It's funny here and there. Funny as in this situation is so absurd/awkward it's funny. Funny as in biting humor with razor sharp teeth laced with tabasco sauce. And I love tabasco sauce.

It uses the latest in projection technology to create a series of whimsical animated tableau that mix 1920s silent-movie kitsch with greeting card silliness and Nightmare-Before-Christmas pop-art.
