Pop Culture Pet Peeve: Not every sex scene needs a lift

There’s very little that’s realistic about Hollywood sex scenes—the passionate kisses in the rain, the way everyone wakes up perfectly covered by an L-shaped sheet, etc. But there’s one increasingly frequent sex scene cliché that especially gets on my nerves. It’s when, moments after the couple starts kissing and it’s evident that things are going to take a naked turn, the man picks up the woman.

My pet peeve isn’t about the move itself: I’m annoyed about the sudden overuse of said move (I can’t think of a single sex scene as of late that hasn’t resulted in a lift). And let’s just say that it isn’t always done gracefully. READ FULL STORY

We love the 2000s: EW staffers pick the decade's best pop culture moments

Lady-Marmalade.jpg

Not too long ago, we were all living in the New Millennium, less affectionately known as the age of Y2K. Or if you want to be technical about it, it was the first decade of the 21st century. And during those 10 years, pop culture thrived. Not only did Nipplegate change the way we looked at Super Bowl halftime shows, but things like Laguna Beach made us rethink “reality,” Heath Ledger’s performance in The Dark Knight redefined the term “Oscar-worthy,” and Glee revived the television musical.

So with VH1’s I Love the 2000s wrapping up tonight, we thought we’d join in and round up our staff picks for our favorite pop culture moments of the 2000s. Because, hey, we loved those years too: READ FULL STORY

George Takei documentary 'To Be Takei' coming to DirecTV before theaters

Starz Digital Media announced Thursday the George Takei documentary To Be Takei will debut July 3 on DirecTV and will run exclusively on the platform until Aug. 5. On Aug. 22, To Be Takei will be released theatrically in the United States and Canada and will also be available on all major video on demand outlets on that date.

To Be Takei, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, offers “an entertaining and moving look at the many roles played by eclectic 77-year old actor/activist George Takei,” states a press release. Written and directed by Jennifer M. Kroot (It Came From Kuchar), the documentary will provide viewers with a rarely seen look into the lives of the onetime Star Trek star and Internet personality and his husband/business partner Brad Takei and promises to show “what it truly means ‘To Be Takei.'” The documentary will also features interviews with all surviving main cast members of Star Trek, and will be the first time that all of them have appeared in the same film together since the Star Trek films.

PopWatch Planner: 'Game of Thrones,' 'Louie,' finales, 'Jersey Boys' premiere, and more

For Game of Thrones fans, today is arguably the most important day of 2014, because it marks yet another season finale, and furthermore, it will probably determine Tyrion’s fate. So to those of you who are obsessed with the show, I wish you good luck. But for the rest of you who are looking past tonight’s finale, there’s an entire week’s worth of possibilities that await you.

Here’s what your pop culture calendar looks like this week: READ FULL STORY

Tom Hiddleston's best musical moments -- VIDEOS

It’s official: Tom Hiddleston’s musical talent will no longer be confined to soundstages or the passenger seat of a car. His voice is going to be heard by all when he takes on the role of country star Hank Williams in Marc Abraham’s I Saw The Light.

In honor of his new venture and also because it’s Friday, we’ve rounded up some of Hiddleston’s best musical moments (with a little dancing bonus —  because if this movie doesn’t take advantage of his rhythm, it might as well be a crime): READ FULL STORY

'Mighty Ducks' oral history: What we learned

Believe it or not, it has been 20 years since The Mighty Ducks graced your movie screens (for the second time). And in honor of the movie that inspired us all to attempt ice skating and say “Quack” repeatedly, Time caught up with those involved for a full oral history of the franchise.

Here’s what we learned: READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: '22 Jump Street' in theaters, 'Veep' finale, Jack White's new album, and more

If you thought June would be your time to take a little pop culture break and maybe binge a few shows you’d never gotten to start, we’ve got some bad news: There’s no time for that. Between finales of some of HBO’s strongest shows — Veep and Game of Thrones — award shows, new books, albums, and movies, there’s very little time for you to play catch-up. So maybe save that for next week? Although, we make no promises that you’ll have time.

Clark-Gregg.jpg

For all of the Marvel fans who have been wondering whether Clark Gregg kept any of Agent Coulson’s vintage Captain America cards, we finally have your answer: Yes, he did. And yes, they’re also covered in (fake?) blood.

When Gregg stopped by our New York City office to promote his new film, Trust Me – in which he plays a struggling talent agent for child stars — we put him in the hot seat. Gregg discussed the movie (and beach memory) that he’ll never forget, his crush on Game of Thrones‘s Khaleesi, and more. Bonus scoop: His first celebrity crush was Kathy Garver, who played Cissy on Family Affair.
