I am a senior staff writer at THG and a big fan of Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Robert Pattinson. I believe Kim Kardashian is bad for society, but great for attention, and that The Real Housewives should all be banned from existence.

Daniel Craig. Harrison Ford. The direction of Iron Man. Teases of Olivia Wilde nude in front of a fire. THIS is how you do a movie trailer!

As one of several summer blockbusters that premiered commercials during Super Bowl XLV, Cowboy & Aliens kept it simple. The following spot featured its stars and a lot of action sequences, while keeping us guessing about the overall concept:

A bunch of cowboys do battle with an invading group of aliens?!? Consider us intrigued, and hopeful for an expanded focus on these Wilde scenes. Check out the full preview now:

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have gone public with their relationship.

Granted, these two were snapped getting awfully cozy on a yacht last month. But those were candid pictures.

And, yes, we watched videotaped evidence of the duo on a movie date a couple weeks ago. But friends of the opposite sex have been known to attend films together without any romantic entanglements involved.

This finally ends all discussion that Bieber and Gomez are merely pals, though. The singers, well aware of the cameras around them, held hands as they strolled along Santa Monica pier yesterday. There was some serious eye-gazing going on, as well...

Please, Beliebers, do not threaten the life of Selena Gomez over this photo [Pacific Coast News].

Simon Cowell is not exactly a man who specializes in subtlety.

The former American Idol judge returned to the airways during Super Bowl XLV with a commercial that didn't merely announce, "He's Back." It did so in grand, god-like fashion.

Cowell then revealed plans to award the winner of this fall's The X Factor with the biggest cash prize in reality show history: $5 million.

Speaking on the difference between The X Factor and Idol, Simon said in a statement today:

“I like the idea that a 12-year-old on this show can compete with an older singer and a singing group. I’ve never believed there should be a cut-off age for talent, and we are going to put our money where our mouths are with the $5 million recording contract. I’m doing this show in America because I genuinely believe we can find a superstar.”

Some Super Bowl XLV commercials left us inspired (see Chrysler, Eminem). Others left us moved (see Volkswagen, mini Darth Vader).

But one left us confused, intrigued and excited for the arrival of June 10: the first official trailer for Super 8.

A science-fiction movie whose premise remains unclear (it's set in 1979 Ohio and centers around an unusual discovery made by children with a video camera) what we see in the following preview is enough to prompt us to buy a ticket:

Super 8 is produced by Steven Spilberg, directed by J.J. Abrams and stars Kyle Chandler. We're in.

Three weeks prior to Super Bowl XLV, Justin Bieber Tweeted that he was filming a commercial, couldn't really tell followers what it entailed, but "when you guys find out it's gonna be funny as heck."

We found out last night. And the singer was correct. How so? This photo pretty much says it all.

In the Best Buy ad, Justin is featured in contrast to Ozzy Osbourne, who is out of touch with the latest technology. At the conclusion of the spot, the aging rocker asks:"What's a Bieber?!" A short, seemingly old man replies: "I don't know. It kind of looks like a girl."

But take a very close look below at the identity of the old man. Take away the beard, and the scraggly hair and who do you have?

Volkswagen didn't go for cheap laughs or celebrity stunts during last night's Super Bowl.

Instead, the car maker aimed straight for heart in the following spot, featuring a child dressed up as Darth Vader, trying his hardest to produce The Force.

It didn't work on his dog, however, or on the washing machine or on a stationary bike. But then the boy's father arrived home, pulled his vehicle into the driveway and... see for yourself. The final reaction shot may be the most adorable scene in commercial history:

It's more than just a championship-deciding football game and a platform for companies to sell their latest products via untalented sex symbols and/or funny exchanges.

The Super Bowl also marks the first real glimpse we get at upcoming summer blockbusters, almost all of which these days are remakes of one kind or another.

Case in point: Captain America. Based on the Marvel Comic, the movie stars Chris Evans as "The First Avenger" and swoops into theaters on July 22. Tommy Lee Jones and Stanley Tucci also play keys roles, as previewed here. Will you be lining up for a ticket?

Lea Michele stepped to the microphone prior to Super Bowl XLV last night and avoided all controversy.

She didn't forget the lyrics to a patriotic classic, nor did she wear a top conservatives could deem as "irresponsible."

Instead, the actress simply reminded us all why she earned such praise on Broadway and why she anchors one of the most popular shows on TV: an incredible singing voice. Listen to it shine on "America the Beautiful" now:

Kim Kardashian did what she does best during her Super Bowl XLV commercial for Sketchers last night:

The reality star wore very little clothing and flirted with men. She sent a bad message at the same time, telling viewers that you don't need a personal trainer as long as you walk around in these sneakers.

Go ahead and try that, people. Eschew working out for a type of footwear. See how far it gets you.

What did you think of the ad? Cute and effective? Or predictable and lame?

The Black Eyed Peas didn't have any Christina Aguilera-like mistakes during their Super Bowl XLV performance.

Quite the opposite, in fact.

The quartet kicked off a medley with “I Got a Feeling,” before Fergie was joined by Slash to perform “Sweet Child O’ Mine.” From there, Usher swooped in for a rendition of “O.M.G.," only for the group to finish up on its own with “Where is the Love” and “The Time (Dirty Bit)." The former even included a plea to Obama...

Our take? One of the most entertaining, fun-loving halftime concerts in recent memory. What did you think?
