Over a hundred thousand votes have been cast so far in our Queens Tournament which pits all sixty previous RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants in a bracket style tourney to see who truly is the Ultimate Queen. We’re down to just 16 fabulous ladies, and it’s anyone’s guess who will come out on top.
Round 2, which closed this weekend contained some real nailbiter brackets: Raja beat out Raven by a mere 220 votes, Jiggly Caliente pulled a surprising upset and knocked out Carmen Carrera by a 40 vote lead, and perhaps the biggest upset of all: Jessica Wild put the lid on Pandora Boxx by a mere 18 votes.
For handy reference – here is the overall leaderboard for remaining contestants after Round 2…

2013 is set to see some of comics' biggest names returning to the big screen, but while Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine and Superman battle it out for box office supremacy, underdog Kick-Ass will quietly go about his business in Universal Pictures' crime-fighting sequel Kick-Ass 2, which received its first red-band trailer and official poster this past Wednesday. If the trailer is any indication, it seems that director Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down) has ramped up the action for the follow-up »

In things I didn't see coming, Billie Joe Armstrong is set to write the songs for These Paper Bullets, Yale Repetory Theater's rock and roll update of Much Ado About Nothing, which seems to be the hot Shakespearean property right now.
In an ABC News interview, Bill Gates was asked about what he learned in scouting, and the answers made me wonder why anyone would want to be a scout. But he was also asked if the scouts should allow openly gay members, to which he responded "Absolutely." When asked why, he replied with a simple "Because it's 2013."
Dick Morris surprised everyone at Cpac by slamming Rep. Paul Ryan's budget, saying the entitlement cuts would cost the Republicans ten years of elections. He also said the Republican party needed to pass immigration reform and soften their stance on abortion, though nothing about gay rights.
Meanwhile, Senator Marco Rubio claims »

You may have heard that Sunday's Oscars was the worst ceremony in Academy history. I bet you also heard it was the best ceremony in Academy history. Get this: Neither is true! The Oscars were perfectly Oscar-y on Sunday, not dreadful or miraculous almost ever. Except for when host Seth MacFarlane stepped up to the dais. Oh God, guys. I don't watch his cartoon, The Hilariously Funny Family Guy Variety Hour or whatever it's called, but rest assured I won't be tuning in any time soon. We'll get to that in a bit.
Let's start with uplifting award handouts: I mostly applauded the night's winners, including the first honoree, the sexy, angular, tantalizingly clean-shaven Christoph Waltz. No doubt about it, the sinister gent is a talented looker. I have dreams where he stares at me like a cruel headmaster and I fall to the ground in sexual hysteria. »

I'll announce 2012's nominees the second the write-ups are done (working on them this week). But until then another listy flashblack to year's past here at The Film Experience. My opinions have changed somewhat over the years (as many opinions should if we continue to evolve) and perhaps I'll detail which changes those were in the future but mostly I like to think of Awards, both mine and other people's as time capsules of What We Valued At That Moment.
So here you go...

Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe gets underway in just a few short months with the release of Iron Man 3 and a new image has arrived online showing a suited up Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), while Don Cheadle (War Machine) told Collider that the cast and crew are heading to Los Angeles for what must surely be the last round of filming on the Shane Black-directed solo sequel.

Killer Joe (Lionsgate) William Friedkin’s film of Tracy Letts’ off-Broadway hit about a family of Texas trailer park cretins (Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Thomas Haden Church, Gina Gershon) who hire a cop-cum-hitman (Matthew McConaughey) to take out their troublesome mother, then foolishly cross him, is a stinging satire, given double-barreled audacity by Friedkin’s sure, and fearless, directorial hand. Earning its Nc-17 rating in spades, “Killer Joe” reminds us that daring, frank material like this is why movies exist in the first place. McConaughey gives the performance of his career, hopefully redefined after this. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Featurettes; Commentary by Friendkin; Trailer. Widescreen. Dolby and DTS-hd 5.1 surround.
The Dark Knight Rises (Warner Bros.) Christopher Nolan’s coda to his “Batman” trilogy finds Christian Bale returning as a brooding Bruce Wayne/Caped Crusader, this time faced with a hulking villain (Tom Hardy) with respiratory »
