Happy 25th Anniversary, Home Alone: 25 Lessons The Movie Taught A Generation!

Filed under: Film FlickersHolidazeGIFsNostalgia

no title

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the John Hughes classic Home Alone, which taught kids everywhere that they could defend their homes from robbers with a little ingenuity!

Of course, the "Wet Bandits" in the film — played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern — were literally the most incompetent robbers in the history of the world!

For example, when Harry sneaks in through the back door to Kevin's house, he unknowingly arms a blowtorch that fires at the top of his head!

Instead of removing his head from the flames, he screams for about seven seconds — and would likely get burned so bad that his skull would melt into his brain!

That's pretty dark stuff for a kids movie — but we love this film anyway! Celebrate the Home Alone-iversary by checking out 25 other lessons we learned from the film!

One Direction Covers Torn By Natalie Imbruglia — AKA The Very First Song They Ever Sang As A Band On X Factor!

no title

Is this the end of our favorite boy band?!

With each song that One Direction released these past two weeks leading up to Made in the A.M. we got the slight feeling that the boys were trying to tell us something.

And as if titles like Love You Goodbye, History, and End of the Day weren't obvious enough… their latest live performance basically put the writing on the wall.

Video: 1D Covers Rihanna, Kanye, & Paul McCartney!

You know how 1D got their start as a band on X Factor back in 2010??

Well, the first song they ever sang as a group just so happened to be Torn by Natalie Imbruglia… which they just performed Thursday at BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge.

Seems like a pretty good bookend to wrap up an iconic career as bandmates, right?!

Ch-ch-check out 1D's last performance before Made in the A.M.'s release on Friday (below)!!!

One Direction Says They're History In New Farewell Song To Fans!

The end is near, Perezcious readers!

We're only a week away from the release of One Direction's fifth studio album, Made in the A.M., which will be the boy band's last new material before taking an extended hiatus.

The saddest part is that the jury's still out as to whether or not the boy band will ever reunite after a year-long break.

But on Friday — with just seven days to go before the record drops — 1D released a new song off the upcoming project, titled History.

And we have to say… it sure sounds like a farewell hit to us! For example, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson sing some pretty powerful lyrics, like:

Julianne Moore Is Petitioning To Change The Name Of Her High School Honoring A Confederate General!

Filed under: PolitikJulianne MooreOscarsSchool

Julianne Moore is putting her foot down!

Recently, the actress — along with friend and producer Bruce Cohen — created a change.org petition to rename their alma mater — J.E.B. Stuart High School — in Fairfax County, VA.

The school — founded in 1959 — was named after the Confederate general who fought to keep African Americans enslaved.

According to their petition, which has already racked up over 29,000 signatures:

"No one should have to apologize for the name of the public high school you attended and the history of racism it represents, as we and so many alumni of Stuart have felt the need to do our whole lives."

The moniker is only made worse by the school's symbol: an image of Stuart waving the Confederate flag atop a horse.

Instead, the Oscar winner believes her education center should be named after civil rights leader and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.

In a statement, she exclaimed:

Trevor Donovan Is Sexy As Always & Is About To Star In His Own Spy Show!

Filed under: TV NewsTrevor DonovanBookz

He just never has a bad day, does he?

Trevor Donovan may be our No. 1 celebrity crush, and the fact that he just keeps having sexy photo shoots is giving us life!

The 36-year-old actor just finished his run on History's Texas Rising and he's already in talks to star in the TV adaptation of the upcoming novel The Man Who Wasn't.

[ Photo: Trevor Donovan's Dirty Sexy Texas Rising Photo Shoot ]

The Ty Hunter book series is about a superstar who uses his fame as a mask for his undercover spy operations, and we think Trevor would be perfect for the part!

The first book, entitled The Spy Who Jumped Off the Screen, came out in 2012, and the second installment hasn't even dropped yet, so if Hollywood is already jumping at the chance to bring the franchise to the small screen, it must be a pretty big get.

But of course, we'd watch Trevor in absolutely anything, so give him more roles! Maybe The Man Who Wasn't Dressed… LOLz!
