Nashville: On the Record 2 Recap: The Gang's (Almost) All Here

25 March 2015 7:58 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Consider this a formal Apb for Nashville‘s Connie Britton.

Because although the musical ABC series’ second On the Record special — which aired Wednesday — is great, it could be so much greater if our favorite redhead took part in the live music goodies in some fashion.*

In short: I want Rayna’s real-life counterpart on stage, y’all.

Q&A: Joel McHale on the New Season of ‘Community’

17 March 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Community” returned for a sixth season on Yahoo this week, but star Joel McHale insists the show hasn’t become an R-rated free-for-all just because it’s streaming online. “We’re not walking around naked and swearing,” he tells Variety. McHale also talked about the show’s rabid following, which he claims are the best-looking fans in the world. Read the full interview below:

How are things different at Yahoo?

There is a different culture, definitely. But when you’re on a show that is not “The Big Bang Theory” or the darling of the administration, you have a sense of, “Well, like see what the ratings are, and maybe you’ll get picked up.” We were always the last thought over at the Peacock. They were always like, “You’re lucky to be on the air.” That attitude is completely different at Yahoo. Yahoo is like a bunch of »

'Mary Poppins' Goes Death Metal in 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' Spoof (Video)

26 February 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Have you ever wondered what the classic "Mary Poppins" tune "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" would sound like as sung by a death metal band? (And really, why wouldn't you?) Well, wonder no more.

YouTube user Andy Rehfeldt uploaded a decidedly un-Disney version of the track featuring vocalists Sera Hatchett and Thomas Hinds standing in for Mary (Julie Andrews) and Bert (Dick Van Dyke), respectively, and the results are...interesting. It's really hard to do it justice without watching/hearing it for yourself, so take a look below:

That's one way to forever change the way you perceive a childhood favorite song. Though we have to say, the death metal music really meshes well with the little jig that Mary and Bert perform at the end.

Fingers crossed that Rehfeldt, Hatchett, and Hinds tackle more Disney songbook tracks soon. We think "A Spoonful of Sugar" is ripe for a new rendition.

Mary Poppins singing death metal is super...califragilisticexpialidocious

26 February 2015 1:53 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ever wondered what Mary Poppins would be like if Slayer provided the soundtrack?

'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' has been given a death metal makeover, even though the sound of it is something quite... well, not half bad actually!

It's the Disney classic as you've never seen it before, with Mary Poppins, Bert and a chorus of pearly kings and queens singing screamo on the track.

Rock musician and composer ‪Andy Rehfeldt produced the video, which has already racked up over half a million views since going live on Tuesday (February 24).

The film starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke was release in 1964.

Van Dyke recently spoke about 50 years of mockery from Brits over his infamous cockney accent in the film.

Mary Poppins Goes Death Metal!

25 February 2015 5:27 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If you've ever wondered what Mary Poppins sounds like when she sings death metal, now is your chance to hear it.

YouTube user Andy Rehfeldt made the Disney classic animated tune "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" into a death metal song by synching the voices of Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins) and Dick Van Dyke (Bert) with vocals from artists Sera Hatchett and Thomas Hinds.

The beautiful and upbeat song about something to say when you have nothing to say now sounds a lot angrier and raspier.

For comparison's sake, let's revisit the original!

While the death metal version may better fit the lyrics, "Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious," this viral video is getting a lot of attention with many YouTube users finding it incredibly funny."This is my jam" and "One to bring smiles" are just a »

What You Can Learn From New Streaming Service Shout! Factory TV

20 February 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Streaming video is a godsend if you want to catch up with recent seasons of TV series. But what's a TV fan to do who wants to stream older shows? Netflix has very little from before the millennium, and Amazon Prime has very little from before 1990.

That's not a knock; the big streaming services know their market. Still, it's worth remembering that Amazon's initial appeal as a bookseller was it's long-tail catalog, the notion that comprehensiveness was worthwhile because somebody somewhere would want that obscure or ancient title, that the markets for all those titles were collectively significant and worth catering to, and that the Internet had at last made it easier to connect those customers with what they wanted.

But until the big streaming services step into the long-tail breach, Shout Factory TV (at shoutfactorytv.com) is ready to make a home there. The boutique streaming service, which is free and requires no subscription, »

Paul Thomas Anderson reveals his favourite movies

25 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In late 2014, Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film Inherent Vice - a psychedelic dive into the La of the past- screened at at a special BAFTA preview with the director on hand to take part in a post-film Q&A.

Ably marshalled by film critic Mark Kermode, the discussion touched on the director's Thomas Pynchon adaptation and his collaborations with Joaquin Phoenix and composer Johnny Greenwood. Perhaps most interesting of all, however, was Anderson talking about his all-time favourite movie.

When asked by Kermode to choose, Anderson replied quickly with "The Treasure of Sierra Madre. There's no competition, it's the best," before hesitating to ponder the merits of Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest.

"This is the game that's so f**king maddening," he said. "On the drive home you're like, no it's not Treasure of Sierra Madre its North by Northwest, it's Something Wild, it's Repo Men. The lists are so long. »
