It wasn't until around 40 minutes into 'The Bling Ring' when I realized that, in no way, was this movie supposed to be "fun" or even "enjoyable." That's when I let down my guard, one that had instinctively risen as soon as I encountered the film's despicable characters. And that's when I realized this movie was a little bit brilliant.
Unlike 'Spring Breakers,' which butters you up with ebullience before crashing your mellow with its frenzied social commentary, 'The Bling Ring' is a dark and surprisingly plain-spoken peek at vapid and defiantly unlikable people.

As an anthropological work, Sofia Coppola's true-crime tale of high school bandits stealing the designer shoes and gaudy jewelry of the TMZ crowd, is actually a remarkable, albeit dark and depressing affair. It is a challenging work and a unique film.
Teenage girl cat burglars... Interested yet?

After being a highlight in the wonderful 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower,' the former Hermione Granger will soon be seen in Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring.' You can check out some new photos from the film below.
'This is the End' got an early jump on April Fool's Day by releasing a fake trailer for 'Pinapple Express 2,' but that was all a build-up to the latest trailer for the movie, which is NSFW, filthy and filled with violence. It's also pretty great.
Is Emma Watson fit to be tied? That's the question on millions of minds since last week's rumor broke linking the 'Harry Potter' actress to the racy '50 Shades of Grey' adaptation. Now Emma is speaking -- er, tweeting -- out about the report, giving fans a piece of her mind regarding her link to the sexy project.
Celebrities like Beyonce, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have all fallen victim to those dreaded hackers, who recently jacked a ton of stars' phone numbers and credit card information. But the terror doesn't stop there. A while ago, another crop hacked into the German studio Constantin and reportedly revealed the answer to one of the most important questions for 'Twilight' fan fiction fans -- who will play the female lead in the '50 Shades of Grey' movie?
