  1. Q&A: Ben Mendelsohn on 'Starred Up' and the Art of ...

    Amos Barshad

    In 2012, with a masterfully sweaty turn in Killing Them Softly, Ben Mendelsohn won my heart. The small-stakes crime flick had its issues but deserved a better fate, if only for gifting us with a sharply funny, unromanticized evocation of the...

    Amos Barshad

    It's been 25 years since the birth of the modern romantic comedy. Beginning with When Harry Met Sally...; in 1989, the genre has become a launching pad for some actors and a refuge for others. In these movies we find predictable mo...

    Amos Barshad

    If you only go so far as the intro in Playboy's new corker of an interview with the irascible Gary Oldman (soon to be seen in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which, side note, I haven't yet seen but is already my favorite movie of all time)...

    Amos Barshad

    You still doing 2013 year-end best-ofs? I'm onto 2014, dawg. And there are eight words atop my list: Dawn. Of. The. Planet. Of. The. Goddamn. Apes. No, no, I haven't actually seen a rough cut of the hopeful summer blockbuster or anything. It's just t...

    Amos Barshad

    Now more than ever, pop culture is about the small stuff — an obscure TV show, a few notes in a pop song, a tweet. To celebrate a year of micro moments, every day a new Grantland writer will highlight one specific thing — a Big Little Thi...

  7. Are We Getting a Homeland-Like Terrorism Drama for Teens?

    Amos Barshad

    Homeland might be charting some choppy waters this third season, but its legacy is still apparently powerful enough to inspire one heck of a delightfully odd development deal. As Deadline is reporting, the CW has signed off on a project that will "pu...

    Amos Barshad

    Back in the day, your parents would be horrified to hear that you were putting your $100,000 liberal-arts education to use crafting semi-clever concept tweets. Then our own Justin Halpern changed the game. Shit My Dad Says got a TV deal, and all of a...

    Flume ft. Ghostface Killah and Autre Ne Veut, "Space Cadet" Quite a few reasons to love Ghostface on display right here. There's him being down to get on a track with a couple of new-school laptop pop weirdos in the first place. There's Flume's ...

  10. The CW Is Making a TV Show Based on Fred Durst's Life? Great!

    Amos Barshad

    I've written before, at length, of my sober admiration for the survival instincts of Fred Durst, so I won't make too big a deal of this. But let's be real: That the CW, a real-enough network, wants in on the Bizkit business 16 years after he warbled ...

  11. 'Work Bitch' Video: Britney Spears Dances With Sharks

    Amos Barshad

    When I was a kid, we'd spend large chunks of summer vacation at my grandparents' house, where we'd do exactly what we would have done if we were home: watch insane amounts of MTV. As long as we rocked some Gone With the Wind or Sound of Music every o...

    The video below is for a track called "King Push." It comes to us off Pusha-T's My Name Is My Name, which is Pusha's first-ever solo album, a release for which a lot of people have been waiting a long time. And so the mere existence of "King Push" is...

  14. Adam Sandler Will Pull a Punch-Drunk Love for Jason Reitman

    Amos Barshad

    Adam Sandler's Happy Madison assembly line suffered a few miscues earlier in the '10s (Jack and Jill gets the brunt of the flak here, but let's not forget That's My Boy also managed to set Western civilization back an eon or two). Commercially, at le...

    Amos Barshad

    OK, so: Alec Baldwin quit Twitter last night — but not before dropping his arguably most expansive rage-blackout to date. Are the words "I'm gonna find you George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I'm gonna fuck...you...up" doing anythin...
