Why I'm Totally Behind The New All-Female 'Ghostbusters' Movie

Any big screen reboot is a tricky business - how do you make something relevant to a modern audience without sacrificing what made it so popular in the first place? Rebooting Ghostbusters is an especially tough task, though, because the original 1984 film (and, to a lesser extent, its 1989 sequel Ghostbusters II) still inspire such affection. Ask "who you gonna call?" and everyone knows exactly which film you're referencing.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Send Up 'The Interview', Bill Cosby And George Clooney At Golden Globes

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the Golden Globe Awards for the third and final time last night (January 11), which is a real shame because the duo were as amusing and likeable as ever - something which eluded Ricky Gervais when he hosted from 2010-12. Their opening monologue aimed zingers at The Interview, Bill Cosby and the plethora of British actors playing Americans in films, but it was their feminist take-down of George Clooney's lifetime achievement award that provided the biggest belly laugh. "George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin this year," Fey explained.

Lena Dunham's 'Girls' Is Back And It's As Brilliantly Unflinching As Ever

Girls is growing up, but guess what? It's going to be messy. The season four premiere, titled 'Iowa', finds Lena Dunham's Hannah preparing to leave New York to return to her native Iowa, where she's been accepted into a prestigious graduate writers' workshop. She and her boyfriend, Adam Driver's Adam, are going to try to make the long-distance thing work, but as Adam tells Hannah, "the plan is there is no plan" - and he's a bit rubbish on the phone. Meanwhile, Zosia Mamet's Shoshanna has finally graduated from NYU after a hiccup at the end of season three.

A Chris Pratt Fan Has Finally Created A 'Jurassic Park'/'Parks And Recreation' Mash-Up

Jurassic Parks and Recreation is exactly what you think it is - a YouTube mash-up of Chris Pratt's US sitcom Parks and Recreation and the new Jurassic Park movie he's starring in. It's kind of surprising someone didn't do this sooner, tbh. Anyway, what might happen if child-like shoe-shiner Andy Dwyer got transferred to the state of the art dino theme park at the heart of Jurassic World? Find out below.
