Hypocrisy and the right go together like Batman and Robin, like Bonnie and Clyde, like Lady and the Tramp. In fact, the right should trademark the word “hypocrisy” so they can charge us for using it to describe their actions- they would be rich in weeks. The latest hypocritical display by the right comes over […] »

Top 10 Movie Kisses for International Kissing DayTop 10 Movie Kisses for International Kissing DayAmanda Wood7/6/2017 10:00:00 Am
Today is International Kissing Day, and you know what that means: we’ve got a list to celebrate.
We couldn’t let this day pass by without commemorating it through a celebration of our favourite on-screen kisses. There have been many memorable make-out moments on-screen throughout the years, but these ten movies have what we consider to be the best of the best. It was honestly difficult to narrow this list down, and much debate was had over the memorability of certain smooches.
We think we’ve got the definitive best kisses list here, with everything from comedies to classic romances to animated films making the cut. Check out the list below!
Never Been Kissed (1999)
Could we really make a top kisses list without including Never Been Kissed? Absolutely not. This delightful tale »

“Awaking Beauty: The Art of Eyvind Earle” is co-curated by Eyvind Earle Publishing CEO Ioan Szasz and Michael Labrie, director of collections and exhibitions for the museum and the Walt Disney Family Foundation.

Beauty and the Beast is in theaters this weekend, and it's the umpteenth time Disney has rebooted one of their animated classics with a live-action cast. The movie has already made bank it its opening day, and Disney isn't about to stop this trend anytime soon. There are live-action reboots of Aladdin, Dumbo, and the Little Mermaid all in various stages of production right now. And more are expected to be announced before the year is over. But there is one movie you can scratch off the list. And that's the 2013 blockbuster smash hit Frozen.
So you can stop sweating and worrying about whether Disney is going to give this fairy tale a humanized rebuff. Also off the list for any immediate Disney live-action reboot are the movies The Emperor's New Groove, Lilo & Stitch, Brother Bear, Bolt and The Princess and the Frog. You can scratch Tangled and Big Hero 6 off that list. »
Something that Deadpool has become known for that’s no doubt helped shoot his popularity into the stratosphere is his irreverent sense of humor. And although the subject of today’s discussion is not an official product of Marvel or Disney – or even Fox, for that matter – there’s no denying that it’s in keeping with the character.
Recently, animator Butch Hartman had the genius idea of combining his love for Deadpool with that of his equal affection of Disney, thus yielding a YouTube video that sees the Merc with a Mouth letting it go as he’s superimposed into various scenes from classic animated films.
Throughout the four-and-a-half minute compilation, you’ll see Wade Wilson invade clips from the likes of Steamboat Itchy Willie, Frozen, The Jungle Book, The Little Mermaid, Lady and the Tramp, The Lion King, Aladdin and several others. As amusing as this endeavor is, »

Amy Schumer has been going to New York City's Hayden Planetarium to learn about the universe her whole life. Now, she made worlds collide by meeting the museum's director, Neil deGrasse Tyson, all the while eating space food in a Nasa suit (obviously). For no apparent reason whatsoever (other than to make us smile) the comedienne sat down with the astrophysicist to talk briefly about some space-y things, including Schumer's intrigue over yeast. After sharing a Lady and the Tramp moment over a piece of space food, Tyson allowed Schumer to touch a part of a meteorite and proved he has some jokes himself. "Ok, so you're now sterile," he told her, laughing as he »
Disney has its fair share of detractors, but few of them would point to the animation studio’s craft when criticizing the occasional sameness of its fairy tales and princess stories. Video essayist Jorge Luengo Ruiz has put together a six-minute video highlighting some of the best shots from more than 40 animated Disney offerings, from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” all the way to last year’s “Moana.” Both the video and a list of the featured movies are below.

For fans of the “Bachelor” franchise, Nick Viall’s comeback narrative is well-known. The first two times around, he was dumped at the last minute and earned villain status. Then, on “Bachelor in Paradise,” the “businessperson” (and… model?) more or less turned things around. So, as Season 21 begins, a question lingers: How will the premiere go about continuing Nick’s journey to redemption? Deploy the three-step plan:
Phase 1: Self-deprecation
(Note: This is really a four-phase operation if you want to count the fact that Nick is naked within the first 30 seconds of the show.)
The real fun begins when Nick shows us how self-aware he is. He mumbles, he doesn’t make eye contact, he touches his face a lot and he’s very long-winded. What a catch!
Phase 2: Family time
Looking through family photos is a great way to get people on board with the idea that you’re a normal human being and »

Nick Viall has officially made his Bachelor debut!
The 36-year-old two-time Bachelorette reject (who also had a stint on Bachelor in Paradise this summer) finally begun his own search for love, bringing 30 women, 15 red dresses, quite a few sex jokes, and one aquatic animal with him.
While the jury's still out on whether fourth time's the charm for Viall, he definitely has a wide variety of individuals to choose from.

Dolphinately a Shark
We suspect there might be a reason while Alexis' job title is "Aspiring Dolphin Trainer" -- the girl apparently can't tell the difference between a dolphin and a shark! The 24-year-old New Jersey native boldly decided to embrace her aquatic side by showing up in none other than a shark costume, which she kept »
