Not surprisingly my favorite part of any major event like the premier of a movie is the chance to see what stars bring their A game when it comes to fashion and the 2013 Cannes Film Festival was no different. All of the actors, actresses, models, and directors flocked to France in order to attend the premier of huge hits, indie films, and...Read More!

Okay, we know what you’re thinking — yes, Hawkeye is the character in Avengers with the bow and arrow.

“Star Trek: Into Darkness is one of the most highly anticipated sequels of this summer and for good reason! The previous franchise-rebooting 2009 movie was a surprise hit that’s reawakened a long dormant yet incredibly passionate fandom (speaking of, did you know that the very first modern fan-fiction was written by Star Trek fans?).
