Bronwen Hughes on Providing ‘Hard Evidence’ Women Deserve to Direct More Movies (Guest Blog)
I met Bronwen Hughes (director of “Forces of Nature,” “Harriet the Spy” and “Stander,” as well as episodes of “The L Word” and “Breaking Bad”) on a video call, while she was in Atlanta shooting a TV series. The focus of our conversation was her latest movie, “The Journey Is the Destination,” now streaming on Netflix. The film recounts the true story of Dan Eldon (Ben Schnetzer), who was an incredible artist and a brave, socially active photographer who traveled the world. He died at only 22, in Somalia. However, it feels like he lived more than many other people. Also Read:.

Supergirl Recap: Road to Recovery (Plus, Melissa Benoist and Chyler Leigh Map Out the Danvers' Next Steps)
Monday’s Supergirl hit pause on the drama in National City to give the Danvers sisters some time to heal.

Alex and Kara made tracks for their hometown of Midvale, where they balanced their time between bickering and reflecting on their childhood… which was also full of bickering. (Side note: This episode only flashed back 10 years, yet Alex was still in school. Exactly how young are we to believe she is?)

Anyway, young Kara and Alex — while perfectly cast — had a pretty rough go of things in their early days. “Before you came along,

NBC moves ahead with plans to redevelop Nancy Drew for a rebooted series

  • JoBlo
Are there any Hardy Boys or Harriet the Spy fans in the house? Back in the '80s and '90s, kids and young adult detective novels were all the rage. It used to be that you couldn't set foot inside you local library without tripping over a prepubescent boy or girl whose face wasn't buried in the pages of Nate the Great, The Babysitters Club, Basil of Baker Street or Encyclopedia...

Clarissa Explains It All's 25th Anniversary: 15 Things Explained About the Show

Clarissa Explains It All's 25th Anniversary: 15 Things Explained About the Show
Clarissa Explains It All premiered in March 1991, meaning that this month it celebrates its 25th anniversary. Yep, if Clarissa Darling were around today (and had been aging in real-world time since the show first debuted), she'd be 38 years old, maybe even with a 13-year-old Clarissa of her own.

It's not just that the Melissa Joan Hart sitcom was a popular show for pre-teen girls or even pre-teens in general; it's that it helped established a network identity for the channel it was on, a still-young Nickelodeon, and helped shape a lot of similarly focused shows that aired throughout the rest of the '90s.

Twenty years ago this week - Feb. 9, 1996 - the romcom-dramedy Beautiful Girls first opened in theaters.

In honor of the film's 20th anniversary, we're pulling out the yearbook and looking up the film's cast to what they've been up to over the past 20 years.

Michelle Trachtenberg Posts Gossip Girl #Tbt Picture With Co-Stars Chace Crawford and Penn Badgley

Michelle Trachtenberg Posts Gossip Girl #Tbt Picture With Co-Stars Chace Crawford and Penn Badgley
Nostalgia alert, Upper East Siders! Gossip Girl was easily one of the greatest guilty pleasure shows of a generation, and while it may have taken a ridiculous turn (Dan as Gossip Girl? Really?) we can't overlook its insanely attractive cast and jaw-dropping fashion statements. The show might have gone off the air in 2012, but Serena van der Woodsen, Dan Humphrey, Nate Archibald, Chuck Bass and Blair Waldorf still live on in our hearts, which is why Michelle Trachtenberg's #Tbt photo is everything. The Harriet the Spy star posted a picture with Chace Crawford and Penn Badgley, Aka Nate and Dan, respectively. Trachtenberg famously played frenemy Georgina Sparks, and her picture is making us wonder all over...

150 random celebrities, painstakingly sorted into Hogwarts houses

150 random celebrities, painstakingly sorted into Hogwarts houses
On July 8, J.K. Rowling released a short, short story about grown-up Harry Potter and the Sequel She Swore She’d Never Write, and over in the magical land of central Florida, the Harry Potter theme park’s Diagon Alley expansion is entertaining six-hour lines on opening day. So apparently, it’s Harry Potter day, and to celebrate this completely random occasion, I’ve decided to do something equally arbitrary and sort a bunch of celebrities into the four houses of Hogwarts. Why? Art needs no reason.

First, the criteria. The Hogwarts houses are divided based on traits: Slytherins are cunning,

Here are the New Titles on Netflix This June
Summer is the best time for nostalgia screenings with friends. This June, Netflix will be adding a number of iconic films to their streaming catalogue that are perfect for watching on a warm evening -- so start planning now! "Apocalypse Now," "Annie Hall," "Carrie," "Wayne's World," "Ever After: A Cinderella Story" and "Harriet the Spy," are just a few of the additions Netflix is making beginning on June 1st. Sure, the latter three titles may not share the illustrious reputation of the former three. But when it comes to nostalgia, let's face it, standards are overrated. TelevisionComedy Bang Bang!

Here's What's New on Netflix in June

Usually June is associated with the first real month of summer -- a time to go out and frolic through the wilderness like a snowman that doesn't know any better. But it also gets really, really hot, which has people retreating to their local multiplex or, even better, their luxuriously air-conditioned living rooms. With that in mind, take a look at the television shows and movies that will be available on Netflix's steaming service come June (via Vulture).

Thought the snail-who-dreamed-of-being-a-racecar saga ended with last summer's DreamWorks Animated joint "Turbo?" Think again. Apparently there's a television spin-off. And you can watch it on Netflix. We also have to give it up for a pair of wonderful sequels that are going to be on in June: the obviously-shot-in-Canada-even-though-it's-set-in-New York robo-epic "Short Circuit 2" (a favorite since childhood) and the far darker and more sinister "Wolf Creek 2," a sequel to the

Michelle Trachtenberg has come a long way since "Harriet the Spy."The 28-year-old actress looked gorgeous as she hit the red carpet for National Geographic's "Killing Kennedy" premiere in a gorgeous green Zac Posen gown.And while she usually wears her hair pulled back or parted down the middle, Michelle opted for a classic Hollywood glamour look for the event. We love it!The former child star plays Lee Harvey Oswald's wife Marina in the TV movie, which premieres Sunday night.The look is a far cry from the last outfit we saw her in: Her Halloween costume!Over the weekend, she was seen partying with fellow former child star Hilary Duff, who was dressed as a mouse.

New trailer for The Colony

A new trailer for horror movie The Colony has emerged, revealing more of the film’s monsters.

Set in a ruined future caused by burning all our fossil fuels and tampering with nature (subtle message there maybe?), all humans are living in colonies under the snow. Colony 7 is lead by Briggs (Laurence Fishburne; Man of Steel) and after receiving a distress signal from Colony 5, decides to investigate. This uncovers a monstrous threat to their very existence.

It’s not clear yet, but extreme hunger plus, perhaps, some virus created by the changed earth, has caused the inhabitants of Colony 5 to become cannibals. In the trailer, the cannibals look and act seem to be a cross between the vampires from 30 Days of Night and the zombies from 28 Days Later. The trailer reminds me of both of those movies, as well as the 1982 classic, The Thing.

The film also stars Bill Paxton (Twister,

"The Good Wife" Recap: Face Your Fierce

On some level it's a disappointment that The Good Wife stuffed a barrel of guest-stars into a single episode and gave everyone from Nathan Lane to Kristin Chenoweth mere moments to dazzle us with meaningful grimaces, but we shouldn't think of Sunday's episode, "The Art of War," with disdain: Ultimately, we witnessed a very compelling military-themed episode with enough strong moments of characterization to make up for an exhausting amount of B- and C-plots. And naturally our beloved regulars shined too. Or gleamed like a serial killer's meat cleaver, in the case of the rage in Eli's eyes.

Here are my favorite thangs from last episode.

1. Amanda Peet, you bring valor and Valium to that uniform.

The still-underrated Amanda Peet, who starred in one of my favorite movies of the past few years, Nicole Holofcener's Please Give, brought a steely reserve to the courtroom as Captain Hellinger, a Jag
