Juneteenth Movie Watchlist

Inspire your activism with the Juneteenth documentary and film picks.

Ever since Juneteenth became a national holiday, corporations have been trying to do to it what they’ve done with Pride: strip it of its roots and turn it into a commercialized holiday to sell more stuff.

Glen Powell Is the King of the Rom-Com

Bringing back the Matthew McConaughey-Level Male Leads to Rom-Coms

For the girls who get it, just the name Glen Powell should cause a physical reaction. Not just for the Top Gun beach scene — or the Anyone But You shower scene — but because he’s the face of a new era: the great return of the mid-budget rom-com.

Stop Putting Brad Pitt In Things

George Clooney Can’t Redeem Brad Pitt — no matter how hard he tries

Hollywood makes me feel delusional and deranged on the daily. From the insane beauty standards it perpetuates to the startlingly low amount of representation, it’s a problematic industry. But perhaps its most toxic trait is propping up men who should not be idolized.

Be Gay, Do Crime: Olmo Schnabel’s ‘Pet Shop Days’ is a Thrilling Tale About Family, Vice, and Being Young In New York City

One of the most thrilling premieres from SXSW 2024 is this queer New York love story that will make you miss being young and stupid.

When you’re a New Yorker, you can’t help it — talking about “the energy” of the city. Derisive and jaded as New Yorkers are, we become fanatical (though not sentimental) when talking about our city.

Girl, I Get It: ‘The Idea of You’ Review

If Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” is the song of the summer, “The Idea of You” is the movie of the summer

It’s been a fun and flirty few weeks for film releases. Last year’s surprise summer romance Anything But You finally came to streaming and is sitting pretty on Netflix’s Top 10. Zendaya and Luca Guadagnino’s Challengers is all sweat, sex, scorn, and some truly fine tennis — no wonder it’s the number-one movie at the box office.

In Tennis, Love Means Zero: “Challengers” Is A Sexy, Sporty Love Triangle Without Much Love

New female manipulator just dropped

I’ll watch anything with Zendaya in it. Even without the genius-level marketing that was the Challengers press tour — complete with those tennis ball Loewe heels — I still would’ve rushed to the theater to watch Challengers. Due to last year’s strike, its delayed release made one thing obvious: anticipation really does make the reward that much sweeter. Challengers finally comes out on Friday, April 26th and after watching an early screening, I can confirm, it’s well worth the wait.
