I don’t understand why body type has to come into play during film reviews. Unless it is an essential part to the role an actor is playing, there is no need to make comments. Someone forgot to tell New York Observer film critic Rex Reed that it’s not necessary. In his review of the Melissa McCarthy/Jason Bateman […]Read More Rex Reed Calls Melissa McCarthy “Tractor Sized”–How Mature.
Amanda Bynes has been everywhere lately. Sadly, it’s not because of an upcoming film project or television series, but because of her wellness, which appears to be in decline. I am not a doctor, nor is anyone on the LivLuna team, so we cannot diagnose any medical conditions. We are also not a gossip site. […]Read More Leave Amanda Bynes Alone. Seriously.

Many people are calling Seth MacFarlane’s take as the host of the Academy Awards satirical–they could be considered right, that perhaps MacFarlane’s take on satire falls under the Juvenalian umbrella. It makes sense–why do we have a four hour (sometimes more) televised ceremony honoring celebrities as if they cured cancer or rescued a small, […]Read More Seth MacFarlane: What is Satire, and What is Stupid?
Oh, for Pete’s sake, we’ve already told you that Lena Dunham isn’t fat. It’s common knowledge at this point that she’s always in some state of undress on Girls, which airs on HBO, where it’s practically a requirement for shows to have a fair amount of nudity. So why, why, why, is there repeated body snarking […]Read More BREAKING: Lena Dunham’s Body Type is Not Unique!

Although the singer is twenty-two years old, most of her songs sound like they’re taken from the diary of a sixteen-year-old girl, opining over boys, playing the victim during a break up and perpetuating the Madonna/whore complex by […]Read More Taylor Swift Doesn’t Consider Herself a Feminist
will admit, I had my misgivings about For a Good Time, Call…. Although I was excited to see the trailer before Magic Mike back in June, as it got closer to the release date, I got a little skeptical.
