When Blockbuster announced that it was officially closing its doors, it was hard to hear for any real movie fans who truly cared. After all, this is the company that helped kill nearly every small video rental chain and relished in carrying a limited selection. So it's not surprising that 'SNL' made a video commemorating the closing of the controversial (at least among cinephiles) company, and it's less surprising that it's as weird and mocking as the show can get.
When life has you down and the only thing that will help brighten your mood is over the counter pharmaceuticals, the average American has plenty of options for anti-depressants. But if you're the President of the United States, you need something different. You need something special. You need Paxil. Thanks to 'SNL,' we now know exactly how President Barack Obama is able to deal with every crisis and scandal that comes his way.
There are few aging action stars as downright weird and lovable as Jean-Claude Van Damme, but he's gone and done something that transcends not only his career, but every major accomplishment in the history of the human race. Mr. Van Damme, known for his incredible physicality, but has topped it all. He's gone and pulled off "the most epic of splits." This you absolutely need to see to believe.
After years of struggling against the odds and barely surviving in a rapidly changing world, Blockbuster announced that it's officially set to close the remainder of its US stores. For some, this is a day or mourning. For others, a day of celebration. For all of us, it's just a reminder that the way we consume media has changed so drastically and so quickly that the thought of Blockbuster going out of business would have been unthinkable a decade ago.
Since normal people tend to work quotes from 'Anchorman' into our everyday lives and attempt Ron Burgundy impressions on a daily basis, it shouldn't come as a surprise that a local news anchor would be well versed in the dialogue and mannerisms of Will Ferrell's iconic character. What does come as a surprise is that said anchor put on a bushy mustache, get in his flashiest suit and played Ron Burgundy for the entirety of a news broadcast this Halloween.
When 'SNL' is on point, there are few live, late night variety shows that skewer American politics so well (but then again, it really does have that category all to itself). There was no way the show was going to miss an opportunity to make fun of the recent government shutdown and there was no way they weren't going to use guest host Miley Cyrus to help do it. The result? A truly bizarre and inspired parody of the music video for Cyrus' "We Don't Stop," which puts Michele Bachmann and John Boehner front and center. Naturally, the new song is called "We Did Stop."
Dangerous car chases through heavily populated urban environments has always been a cornerstone of the wonderfully ludicrous 'Fast and Furious' series and the latest film is certainly not going to be an exception. Filming is currently underway on 'Fast and Furious 7' and the production is looking for some fans to fill out some key scenes.
Before the critical accolades of 'Breaking Bad,' before the memorable stint on 'Malcolm in the Middle,' the great Bryan Cranston was just a working actor, the kind of guy who couldn't say no to a part unless he decided he didn't want to pay his rent. This means that the early filmography of the man who would be Walter White is filled with all kinds of odd projects ... and 'Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers,' a fact that Jay Leno dredged up when Cranston appeared on 'The Tonight Show.'
The 2013 Emmy nominations have arrived and at first glance, it's more of the same. Of course 'Breaking Bad,' 'Mad Men,' 'Homeland' and 'Downton Abbey' seem to be dominating the drama category! Of course '30 Rock,' 'Louie' and 'Veep' are contenders in the comedy category! However, the big surprise with this year's nominations is that one of the most nominated shows wasn't even on TV at all.
Zombies may be really hot right now, but there's one thing that is (and probably always will be) a bigger deal: Pixar. Brad Pitt's 'World War Z' performed quite well in its opening weekend, but even the biggest zombie movie of all time couldn't keep pace with 'Monsters University.'
