Guess who turns 43 today? Amy Poehler! But she shouldn't be surprised if her Bff Tina Fey doesn't call or send a card. "I'm going to forget it like I do every year and she'll forget mine," Fey told me last night at the premiere of her new movie This Is Where I Leave You (in theaters on Friday). "But maybe this year, I'll remember because you helped me." As for a gift, Fey may have been inspired by Orange Is the New Black. "Just boxes of cigarettes, like we're in prison!" she joked (at least we think she was joking). Fey and Poehler first cracked us up when they were on Saturday Night Live together after first meeting in an improve »
Guess who's back to romantic comedies? Chris Evans. After years of playing Captain America, Evans is romancing Michelle Monaghan in the trailer for Playing It Cool. He plays a screenwriter who wants to be writing heavier stuff, but his agent (Anthony Mackie) just wants a good romantic comedy script. Enter a woman so perfect in every way - except she's taken. What's a guy to do? I guess we'll find out when the movie is released sometime . . . in the future. There's no Us release date. Let's just hope this isn't as forgettable as The Nanny Diaries or What's Your Number? Front Page Image Source: Voltage Pictures »
On September 18th, the people of Scotland will vote on their nation’s independence from the United Kingdom. It’s a complex issue, fraught with a number of potential consequences that may affect the livelihood of millions of real people. And maybe a fake one.
As it turns out, The Simpsons’ resident Scotsman, Groundskeeper Willie, has some very strong opinions about Scottish independence—particularly who would lead the nation should the ayes have it. Guess who that would be. »

Seven months ago I contacted the people at Variant Comics. They put a wonderful piece on Static Shock together so I sent them what I thought was a satire filled message that pointed out that they were wrong in regards to whom created Static and to please fix it. Before they answered I’d written a respectful piece on Bleeding Cool, which again pointed out how great their work was.
Check it out right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cU4_BXDzZU0
When my email was answered the person did not see any humor in what I wrote and thought I was being heavy handed and said the piece would be changed. I felt in his response he was addressing me as if I were a 10-year old. I thought it best to let him know I meant no ill will so, »

The good news is that Kevin Costner does some of the finest, most deeply felt work of his career as a widower lawyer fighting for custody of his biracial granddaughter in Mike Binder’s “Black and White.” The bad news is that that’s as if “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” had been made only five minutes ago. The even worse news is that, in the moment of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and the Birther movement, a movie like this might be just what America needs right about now. Unlikely to match the $28 million worldwide take of Costner and Binder’s 2005 teaming “The Upside of Anger,” “Black” should connect with select older and urban auds, but lacks the broader crossover potential of a “Crash” or “The Help.”
Maybe because Costner became a star playing golden-boy athletes, military men and noble crusaders, it’s particularly affecting to see him at »

Episode 37 of 52: In which Katharine Hepburn plays another aristocrat in an odd little movie that makes no sense.
1969 was a really weird year for Kate. At age 62, she’d achieved commercial and critical success unlike any she’d experienced before. The Lion in Winter and Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner had not only earned Katharine Hepburn back-to-back Oscars, but also made her one of the top grossing stars of 1968. But as the 60s blossomed into the 70s, Kate took two very strange steps: an allegory, and a musical. Limitations be damned, she was Kate the Great, and she hadn’t had a flop in 15 years. That was about to change.
The Madwoman of Chaillot works as a curio, but not as a film. Based on a postwar French allegory, “updated” to include topical issues such as student riots and atomic power, the resulting movie is one Be In »

It's almost September, which means a whole new slew of titles on Netflix! August proved pretty lucrative on the quality title front, but it looks as though September it's going to blow the rundown out of the water.
TV takes spotlight this month, with the latest full seasons of "The Walking Dead," "New Girl," "The League," "The Blacklist," "Arrow," "Bones," and "Parks and Recreation" primed and ready for streaming before their fall premieres. And fans still mourning the loss of "How I Met Your Mother" (in more ways than one) can rewatch the ninth and final season to their heart's content. Ah, memories. Showtime's recently departed "Californication" can be seen in its entirety (Seasons 1 -7) as well, starting September 1. That's a lot of TV.

Today is the first of many goodbyes we’ll have to say on this series. After the success of Long Day’s Journey Into Night, with critics declaring her one of the greatest screen actresses of her generation, Kate disappeared for five years to take care of her partner of three decades, Spencer Tracy. It was the longest break she’d taken since she started making movies in 1932, not even her infamous “Box Office Poison” drought had lasted longer than 3 years. But the news was bleak: Spencer Tracy was dying.
Spencer Tracy’s health started declining rapidly in 1961. By 1967, he was in such poor health that the studios considered him uninsurable. Everyone working on Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner knew that this would be his last film. As a result, when Spencer Tracy died 17 days after shooting wrapped, »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] Day 6 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon starts with "The Simpsons Bible Stories" and carries through "Children of a Lesser Clod," going from Episode 221 through Episode 268. Again, we're not in the Golden Age anymore, but that doesn't mean that there aren't great episodes kicking around in here. We have seven top-notch recommendations and that doesn't even include the crayon-in-the-brain favorite "Homr" or the toad-licking "Save me Jeebus!" fun of "Missionary: Impossible." Actually, "Missionary: Impossible" should definitely be here, but I'd already saluted two favorites and nobody else wanted to call it. Oh well. Check out our recommendations for Day 6 and chime in with your own favorites... Daniel Fienberg Recommends: "Guess Who's Coming to Criticize Dinner" (4 a.m.) Episode #229 Why It's a Classic: I think there was a universality to the first 10-plus seasons of "The Simpsons" that maybe has lapsed a tiny bit in recent years, but when it comes to specificity, »

Yee-haw! If only every showdown was like this on The Voice.

Take a look: Season 7 of The Voice premieres Monday, Sept. 7 (8 p.m. Et) on NBC. »

A classic Star Trek character returns in this week's look-back at a must-watch Tng season three episode...
This review contains spoilers.
In a startling moment of originality, the Enterprise is once again acting as the glorified taxi for a Federation Ambassador and hosting their negotiations. But this time, it's not boring. This time, they're transporting Ambassador Sarek!
Although his entourage seem over-protective of Sarek, insisting that he's excused from all non-essential functions, Sarek himself seems surprisingly energetic. Nonetheless, Picard lets him off the Mozart concert he had planned, and also tells Worf not to bother setting up the Tri-Dimensional Guess Who? Tournament (probably).
When checking out the conference room, Sarek gets uncharacteristically agitated at the unpreparedness of it. Geordi and Wesley don't help the situation by complaining about the smell of the slime the Legaran delegation live in and talking about Wesley's upcoming hot date with Ensign Suzanne Dumont. »

This is how Katy Perry parties when she's single.
This is how Katy Perry parties when she's single.
Surrounded by four shirtless men, the "Dark Horse" singer hit the water in a teeny, and we mean teeny, black bikini.
Photos: Guess Who Flashed Her Bikini Butt!
The video shows the gang going underwater at Kansas City's Schlitterbahn Waterpark as they throw up peace signs, and one of the gentleman's Yolo sunglasses floats off his face.
News: Katy Perry Posts Her Nose Piercing
The 29-year-old captioned the summer video: "Hi from the #theprismaticworldtour."
Perry later posted another pic on Monday, thanking the waterpark. She wrote: "Thank you @schlitterbahn Kc for hosting the kids on #theprismaticworldtour today! We can't wait to do our costume changes with our sunburns tomorrow!"
One thing's for sure, this "California Gurl" knows how to do summer right!
Another week in beautiful Mexico! I can’t even tell you how amazing it was to spend almost a month there. And every day was full of excitement. This week was a pretty quiet week in paradise with no balcony jumpers or hospital visits… wait, that’s not true. Chris Bukowski kept the streak alive and judging by the previews for next week’s two-night special event the hospital visits aren’t over yet. But let’s not jump ahead, as we have so much to discuss from this week.
We began this week by catching the aftermath of last »

As Lil Wayne and Drake head out on their co-headlining tour, Lil Wayne dropped a new single, “Grindin’,” featuring—Guess who?— Drake. Guess we know what they’ll be performing together on stage. On the track from “Tha Carter V,” Lil Wayne is ranting about a lot of things here, but especially about guys who are stupid enough to think if they’re monogamous that means their lady is being similarly faithful. And he wants to let us know he’s never paid for sex. Tmi Toward the end, he talks about getting rid of all his cars and watches because he’s learned he doesn’t need them. And his final message to us is “I’m fucking every night up in my new house because bitch, I worked to hard for this new house.” There’s a lot of boasting going on and precious little catchiness in the monotonous tune. »
