Opinion piece: Why the Academy are racist for snubbing Selma
Guests of the Academy - overwhelmingly white, overwhelmingly male - took their seats at the opulent Dolby Theater in California to witness the announcement of the nominations for the 77th Oscars. When they were over, they continued chewing on their steaks and clinking their champagne glasses, oblivious to the racism hanging heavy in the air: Ava DuVernay's astonishing drama Selma, a biopic of Martin Luther King, had been snubbed - proof positive once and for all that the Academy is institutionally racist.

If 2015's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth
Shut up everyone, the Oscar nominations have been announced! No one cares about your new haircut, Janice! As is customary around these parts, it's impossible for us to comment on a news item without making some sort of crudely Photoshopped picture, so we decided to make new posters for the nominees that tell you what you can really expect.

Eight posters for The Equalizer, each more boring than the last
It's September, the month when Hollywood lets out a 30-day yawn. Denzel Washington's action thriller The Equalizer is probably the largest studio release this month, but you wouldn't know it to look at its posters: a series of eight one-sheets that feature Denzel Washington, your dad's clothes, a gun and no excitement whatsoever. Can it hurry up and be Halloween soon please?

Call off the search: here's the worst movie poster of 2014
Not sure what's more offensive here: 1) The quite improbable pose in which the giant woman is falling down the stairs, 2) The quite implausible architecture of the world's most poorly designed house, or 3) The quite impossible shitness with which the poster has been copied and pasted from the original. Also, for the tagline, see...



... AGAIN. (Thanks to @charlielyne for the heads up).
