Everything that’s wrong about the trailer for The Giver in three images. (And in more excruciating detail here.)

First trailer for The Giver: We’ve got feelings. (Mainly: WHY IS IT ALL IN COLOR.)

Disney, who brought joy arguably to billions of people was, perhaps, or had some racist proclivities. He formed and supported an anti-Semitic industry lobbying group and he was certainly, on the evidence of his company’s policies, a gender bigot…When I saw the film [‘Saving Mr. Banks’], I could just imagine Walt Disney’s chagrin at having to cultivate P.L. Travers’ favor for the 20 years that it took to secure the rights to her work. It must have killed him to encounter in a woman an equally disdainful and superior creature, a person dismissive of his own considerable gifts and prodigious output and imagination.

The incomparable Meryl Streep giving an award to Emma Thompson… and giving the business to Walt Disney.

She’s not good, she’s not nice, she’s just right — she’s the witch. You’re the world…

(For the uninitiated: Yes, this is the first photo of Meryl Streep as The Witch in Disney’s upcoming adaptation of Into the Woods. Think she’ll give Bernadette a run for her money?)

I wanted to make a public statement, like: ‘Hey idiots, it’s a quote. From a movie.’

Jennifer Lawrence sets the record straight about her ‘I beat Meryl!’ line at the Golden Globes.

The lucky so-and-sos at Harvard, Yale, and Penn get to hear commencement addresses from these fine folks in May. Which got us thinking—who do you wish had spoken, or hope will speak, at your own college graduation?

Personally, I can’t imagine a speaker much better than Amy Poehler, unless Bossypants Tina Fey or my number one friend crush Mindy Kaling decided to throw their hats into the commencement speech ring. And I’m certainly not still bitter that the affiliated college across the street snagged Meryl Streep for their Class Day the same year I graduated. Nope. Not bitter at all. (We got NAACP president Benjamin Jealous instead, who was pretty good… though I’m shallow and was really hoping for someone a little, well, famouser.)

How about you?

Congrats to them and everything… but To Kill a Mockingbird came out almost 51 years ago, and Harper Lee’s just getting honored now?
