Gossip High Concept Reviews Miscellaneous

Popular Culture News Sites - Like the cable television channel is it named after, it is your one-stop celebrity news/media/gossip website.



Ain't it Cool News - Harry Knowles is the best example of how the internet has turned even the biggest geek into a bona-fide Hollywood player.  Good movie scoop on this website.



The FCC - Remember kids, big brother is watching.



Celebrity Gossip


Jeannette Walls on MSNBC - one of the original gossip mongers.  not nearly as sensationalistic as some of her brethren, but always relevant and always interesting.



Ted Casablanca on - We both used to read this religiously, but not so much anymore.  Still though, it's about as fun and entertaining as you might imagine a flaming gossip columnist might be, meaning that when he's on, it's a riot. - A blog that is part of the Gawker media family of blogs.  It's one of my new favorite blogs out there and usually has stuff before anyone else these days.



VH1's Best Week Ever blog - This thing is freakin' hilarious.  Check it out, and I'll promise you'll get hooked.



High Concept Takes on Popular Culture (but not nearly as good as ours)


Pop Matters - A webzine put together by a professor at Syracuse.  Like us, it's a critical look at pop culture, but after reading it, you can't help but think that all of the contributors are white, granola, journo-students who don't watch MTV because they think it's beneath them.  If that's your thing, then by all means, check it out.  Every now and again, we find something worth reading on here.  Also, you should note that it is one of the most horribly designed websites ever.



Low Culture - A pretty funny blog about the intersection of politics and popular culture




Planet Socks - Formerly Planet Sucks, this site posts viewer summaries of reality shows that are much more truthful to why we watch reality television.


The Ragin' Asian - Some dickhead's blog about sports, popular culture, and the intersection of the two.



Review Sites


Metacritic - All of the major reviews from major reviewers for different movies, albums and video games conveniently distilled into a magic rating number for you. It's a good place to see what the press is saying about popular culture



Rotten Tomatoes - Similar Premise as metacritic, but much more weight given to user reviews.





The Internet Movie Database (IMDB) - everything you ever wanted to know about virtually every movie ever made.  Handy for answering nagging questions such as "How many movies did Cory Feldman and Cory Haim make together?" (7 if you were wondering.)



Jump the Shark - Website dedicated to locating the exact moment that a television show went downhill. It's name is derived from the episode of Happy Days where the Fonz jumps over a shark on waterskis as some wacky manhood ritual.
