Chris Pratt knows it’s “kinda douchey” to post a shirtless pic on Instagram, but we’ll forgive him. The Parks and Recreation star’s brother convinced him to show off his new physique for Marvel’s big-screen Guardians of the Galaxy in which Pratt will play leading man Star Lord, the half-human half-alien leader of a bio-engineered team of space-traveling heroes. We’re guessing this took Henry Cavill hours in the gym, but Pratt credits “Six months no beer.” READ FULL STORY

It’s Fourth of July weekend, so why not go see a Spanish movie?
I just wanted to share that I recently suffered/indulged in one of my biggest LOL spasms of 2013 during the absolutely ridiculous dance scene in Pedro Almodóvar’s new film I’m So Excited (Los amantes pasajeros, in theaters now). It’s not complicated: The three first-class flight attendants (Carlos Areces, Raúl Arévalo, and Javier Cámara, pictured) just vamp around to the Pointer Sisters’ hit, on a plane, in the middle of a life-threatening flight. It sounds annoying and probably would be annoying to many humans. But I died. And each time I thought the laugh-wave had passed, all I had to do was look at any other character’s facial expression — delight! disgust! the theater! — and I was right back in it. It’s a complete sh*tshow of WTF and WHY? My point is this: If you’re in the right mood, this movie is so absurdly fun.
I’m So Excited is subtitled, super sexual, and full of fast-talking nonsense. Most characters are gay, in denial about being gay, or will become gay in the next few hours. So it’s definitely not everyone’s Peninsula Airlines (which may as well be Penis Airlines) cup of Valencia Cocktail. Our critic Owen Gleiberman says the film is “like a helium balloon with a leak in it,” which I totally get. It’s not perfect. It’s crazy. But you might be crazy! I’m crazy, and I was really into it. If you’d rather be attacked by rapid-fire flight attendant bitchery than minions, zombies, or the government, this could be your best-bet holiday weekend trip.
Giggle fit aside, the bottom line is that I’ll see any Almodóvar movie (again and again and again) for the visual presentation alone. Even the fonts in the opening credits were next-level, and by that I mean they looked straight out of the early ’80s. But they were so bright and oddly shaped and unexpected. Perhaps you get what I mean. And every frame in all of his films is like its own piece of art. I don’t know how he does it — camera angles? makeup? just a unique sense of casting? — but each actor’s face is so flawless at every moment, their overreactions somehow “just enough” for me. I guess all the hallucinogens worked. All I wanna do now is watch early Almodóvar movies. I suppose I can wait until sundown.
Anyway: This is a frothy treat. You can zone out and jump right back in. Sobriety is not necessarily encouraged.
Anyone else have a similarly trippy experience with I’m So Excited? Do share.
Sitting perfectly still while watching Ciara dance in videos counts as working out, right?
Upon repeat viewings of the new video for Ciara’s “I’m Out” (featuring Nicki Minaj), I’ve realized that the choreography here is not as aggressively unachievable as the dancing queen’s usual fare. A lot of the moves are mere poses that YOU could do — and have probably already done — in the shower! Friends, it’s time for a body party. A guide: READ FULL STORY
Tonight, Jimmy Kimmel debuted a music video for the vaguely explicit slow jam “(I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum,” featuring White House Down costars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, along with Miley Cyrus, Olivia Munn, and Gabourey Sidibe. Don’t blink or you’ll miss the Matt Damon cameo. READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Confessional: YouTubing Henry Cavill, and other entertainment that's made you late for work
I spent a half hour this morning YouTubing Henry Cavill. Twenty minutes in, I realized it’d make me late for work — unless I made it the basis for a PopWatch Confessional. So I kept going until I discovered he’s played at least three characters who’ve had sex on a boat.* (NSFW clips below.) Yep, that made me feel guilty enough that I had an item and could stop.
Now that I’ve admitted that, it’s your turn to confess: What entertainment has made you late for work? It could be an Internet reconnaissance mission like the one above, an episode of TV from the previous night you just had to see (or repeatedly rewind), a show you were marathoning, a morning show appearance you needed to watch live, or a rerun that sucked you in (morning NewsRadio repeats on A&E got me for, like, two weeks more than a decade ago).

He might not look it, but Johnny Depp turns 50 today. And while he hasn’t spent all 50 of those years in Hollywood, he has given us countless memorable moments since exploding on the scene in the ’80s.
The tatted superstar with very interesting taste in movie roles is as pretty as he is mysterious, so in honor of a great actor (and his remarkable cheekbones), here are 50 of his best moments, from his many words of wisdom to his best characters and everything in between:
