This is it. This is the end, the weekend where television goes all a bit crappy once again. Sunday night sees the final airing of Breaking Bad, which is certainly the best TV show of our time (Tm). Spanning fives seasons, and five bloody brilliant years, Breaking Bad was one of those shows that got better and better as the seasons went on, and to all of those who haven’t seen the sheer brilliance from creator Vince Gilligan and his team, well, I’m envious of you, as you have the opportunity to see it all for the first time. Off you go then…
As we prepare ourselves to deal with the withdrawl, here’s a light-hearted look at the five key cast-members from the show, and some video footage from television appearances ‘Before Breaking Bad.’

Though he may have been but an animated model given life through primitive special effects, King Kong, with his doomed loved for the beautiful blonde, has become one of the most beloved of all movie characters, revived in remakes, sequels and knock-offs. But Kong wasn’t the only massive simian to grace the silver screen. Here’s a look at the ten best giant ape movies.
Honorable Mention: A*P*E
The ad campaign for the 1976 Korean film A*P*E warned “Not to be confused with King Kong”. A captive giant ape, after escapes from a freighter and sets his destructive sights on Seoul, Korea where he falls for an American actress (Joanna Kerns ) filming a movie there.

If you’re like me and worship things like silver anniversaries, hopefully you can make use of this jam-packed list: 10 underrated dance jams from ’88 that will fill your summer of 2013 with monumental firepower.

Frost's former co-host Loyd Grossman said: "Keith has definitely put a new spin on a very well-established, much-loved format. He has given Through the Keyhole a contemporary twist, but preserved the spirit and intention of the original programme. »

The fifth installment of Altus Press’ Wild Adventures Of Doc Savage will feature a foe unfamiliar to the influential pulp hero , but familiar to all of us: King Kong. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Doc Savage, the special book from Will Murray and Joe DeVito comes out in March. The press release is pulpy in itself, so I’m going to just lay it on you guys:
Eighty years ago in February, 1933 the Street & Smith company released the first issue of Doc Savage Magazine, introducing one of the most popular and influential pulp superheroes ever to hit the American scene. Doc Savage was the greatest adventure and scientist of his era, and while his magazine ended in 1949, he influenced the creators of Superman, Batman, Star Trek, The Man from Uncle and the Marvel Universe—to name only a few.
While that first issue of Doc »

In this occasional series of 'remarkable things' articles, we've mostly focused exclusively on movies that were critical or financial flops. Previous entries have included Jaws: The Revenge, Battlefield Earth and RoboCop 3, which all suffered in both critics' reviews and at the box office.
This time, our choice isn't a notorious flop at all - it's Tango & Cash, a film which actually made a few million dollars more than it cost to make. At this stage in Sylvester Stallone's career, which featured the critical and financial nightmares Rocky V, Oscar and Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot, Tango & Cash was a comparative blockbuster.
In terms of critical reception, though, Tango & Cash fared less well. It was nominated for three Razzies (though won precisely none) and reviews »
