Which Mean Girls Character Is So Fetch & Still Your Favorite 15 Years After the Movie Premiered?

Which Mean Girls Character Is So Fetch & Still Your Favorite 15 Years After the Movie Premiered?
Stop trying to make fetch happen, it's never going to happen! While Gretchen Wieners' (Lacey Chabert) catchphrase from Mean Girls is still not "happening" like Regina George (Rachel McAdams) predicted, Mean Girls is so fetch and still so fierce. Today marks the 15th anniversary of the cult classic by Tina Fey and it's totally grool that after all these years the movie is still being talked about. On April 30, 2004, Lindsay Lohan's Cady Heron first came into our world and for most fans of the movie she's never left. In the film, Cady is a home-schooled jungle freak who starts high school at the age of 16 and quickly learns that high school is a lot like the...

Lindsay Lohan as Regina, James Franco as Aaron and an Unlikely Original Title: 15 Secrets About Mean Girls That Are So Fetch
It's hard to believe, but it's been 15 years since Tina Fey took us inside the animalistic and downright hilarious world of teenage girls. But while fetch may never happen, Mean Girls did. And ever since the teen comedy's debut on April 30, 2004, we've been totally obsessed with the grool—that's great and cool, duh—movie. It proved how funny Lindsay Lohan could truly be, launched the careers of future superstars Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried, introduced us to Jonathan Bennett (whose hair still totally looks sexy pushed back), had us wondering if butter is a carb, gave Ariana Grande something to spoof in her "thank u, next" video and us something to endlessly quote ad...

‘Hell Fest’ DVD Review

Stars: Bex Taylor-Klaus, Reign Edwards, Amy Forsyth, Tony Todd, Courtney Dietz, Michael Tourek, Christian James, Matt Mercurio, Roby Attal, Elle Graham, Alicia Rosato, Brooke Jaye Taylor, Mason Pike | Written by Seth M. Sherwood, Blair Butler, William Penick, Christopher Sey, Akela Cooper | Directed by Gregory Plotkin

Hell Fest is the latest simplistic, conventional, horror film from the depths of the money-grubbing Hollywood machine. Helmed by director Gregory Plotkin, only his second feature after highly successful stints as an editor on numerous productions, ranging from Jordan Peele’s Get Out to the Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams comedy Game Night. Plotkin is most noticeably and well known to have been a longtime series editor on the long-enduring and softly effective Paranormal Activity franchise, even helming the fifth entry Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, with little to no acclaim or credit. He returns back to the director’s chair with his latest venture in Hell Fest,

Halloween Horror Movie Trick Lures in Omar Epps, Jamie Kennedy and Tom Atkins
Director Patrick Lussier and screenwriter Todd Farmer's new Halloween-themed horror flick Trick has just added Omar Epps to the cast which already includes the likes of Tom Atkins, and Jamie Kennedy. Ellen Adair and Kristina Reyes also star.

The story centers on an elusive serial killer, who descends upon a small town annually. He is responsible for gruesome murders year after year, each seemingly unrelated. No one believes this could be the same killer. Epps will be playing the lead role of Detective Denver who has faced Trick once before, having shot and killed him. Or so everyone keeps telling him. However, Denver knows Trick is still out there, and he's coming back for revenge.

Producer Ellen Wander stated this.

"We are thrilled to get into production with Omar and Patrick and can't wait to have this film be seen by audiences everywhere."

Woody Harrelson Was ‘Disappointed’ by ‘True Detective’ Season 2

Woody Harrelson Was ‘Disappointed’ by ‘True Detective’ Season 2
The third season of “True Detective” has been widely hailed as a return to form after its disappointing sophomore season, which moved the action from Louisiana to Los Angeles and starred Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch. That may be why Woody Harrelson, who starred alongside Matthew McConaughey in the acclaimed first go-round of the anthology series, has finally spoken about Season 2 — albeit briefly.

“It was pretty amazing because I had not thought about doing television from the time I did ‘Cheers,’ and then I did like seven episodes on ‘Will and Grace,’” Harrelson told Sunday Today, per Entertainment Weekly. “I was not really wanting to do television. Well, it wasn’t television, it was HBO. So I feel lucky about that. I was, you know, kind of disappointed that the second season wasn’t as…,” he said before cutting himself off. “But now the third season,

‘Gloria Bell’ reviews: Julianne Moore is ‘transcendent,’ ‘vulnerable,’ and a ‘queen’ in this critically acclaimed remake

‘Gloria Bell’ reviews: Julianne Moore is ‘transcendent,’ ‘vulnerable,’ and a ‘queen’ in this critically acclaimed remake
Is it too early in the year for an Oscar front-runner for Best Actress? Probably, but the reviews for Julianne Moore‘s performance in “Gloria Bell,” which opened on March 8 from A24, would be the envy of most stars opening their films right in the sweet spot of the fall season awards calendar.

“Gloria Bell” is a remake of the 2013 Chilean film “Gloria” by director Sebastian Lelio, who also directs this American version. Since that original film was released Lelio has made even more of a name for himself by winning Chile its first Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film with “A Fantastic Woman” (2017), which was also the first film starring a transgender actress to win that prize. Then Lelio made his English-language debut in 2018 with the romantic drama “Disobedience” starring Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams as star-crossed lovers in an Orthodox Jewish community.

The Notebook Alternate Ending Was an Accident Claims Netflix U.K.

Netflix U.K. claims that they were given the altered version of The Notebook and mistakenly uploaded it. Viewers watching the classic romance movie in the U.K. were shocked to see that the ending had been edited, taking out the poetic death scene and instead flashing to birds flying over the lake. After realizing what had happened, viewers expressed their anger on social media, which even caught the attention of author Nicholas Sparks, who revealed that he preferred the original ending during a recent interview.

After The Notebook controversy started to spread online, Netflix released a statement. It appears that they were given the altered version of the movie and were not aware that it was edited. Fans in North America are about to have access to the movie on the streaming platform and are wondering what version of the movie they will see. You can read Netflix's statement below.
