#BernieOrBust to #ImWithHer: Will Sanders Supporters Team Up with Clinton?

8 June 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Bernie fans never say die - or, at least, not willingly. As Hillary Clinton ends the primaries as the first-ever female presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Bernie Sanders doesn't seem quite ready to let go, charging that superdelegates could still help him become party's leader. Yet, with 1,812 pledged delegates and 571 superdelegates, according to ABC News, Clinton has enough support to claim victory. So what's next for the Vermont senator's steadfast troop, which includes former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura, and New York state senator Bill Perkins? "Based on past history, I'd expect most Sanders supporters to rally behind Clinton for the general election, »

How Arnold Schwarzenegger Previewed Donald Trump’s Political Future

8 March 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A catchphrase-spouting celebrity outsider leaps to the top of the political heap, unleashing angst among the pundit class that initially refused to take him seriously. Donald Trump? Well, yes, but also Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California, and his “Predator” co-star Jesse Ventura, the onetime wrestler who held the same office in Minnesota.

Trump’s success in the Republican presidential race has triggered an anthropological dig to unearth parallels and root causes. Some trace it, for example, to talk radio. Others have pointed to 2008 and Sarah Palin, whose stint in reality television followed her vice presidential bid, or Barack Obama, given the wild enthusiasm generated by his first campaign — and by opponents’ attempts then to label him a “celebrity” as a means of dismissing him. And of course, colorful businessman Ross Perot left his mark on the 1992 race.

Yet the closest parallel to Trump (his political twin, if you will) is Schwarzenegger, »

The Predator: what we know, what we'd like to see

There's a new Predator movie on the way! We look at what we know, the rumours, speculation - and what we'd like to see...

There was a time when Boris Karloff’s Monster was a creature to be feared as well as pitied. Now Frankenstein’s monster masks are readily available in joke shops. The shark in Jaws made a legion cinema-goers afraid of dipping a toe in the ocean, but its ferocious mystique gradually ebbed away through a trio of increasingly tawdry sequels.

This is the problem with movie monsters of all kinds; whether they’re from the depths of space (Alien) or flesh-eating psychologists from just down the road (Hannibal Lecter in Manhunter, Silence And The Lambs and so on), they have a tendency to lose their mystique over time. Such is the case with the Predator, the towering and indescribably cool alien big-game hunter »

16 WWE 80s Stars That Should Be Hall Of Famers

12 February 2016 12:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE

It seems as though the WWE Hall of Fame is more and more regimented, in that the induction class has to follow a specific pattern: one headliner, one woman, one tag team, one celebrity, and three or four other inductees that include no more than one deceased performer (so as to not upset people, it seems).

Looking back at the 2004 and 2005 classes, you had quite the haul of 1980s greats going in, from Hulk Hogan to Rowdy Roddy Piper to Jesse Ventura to Sgt. Slaughter, and a host of others. Few WWE eras were as cool as the 1980’s Rock ‘n Wrestling era, and the first five or so years of Saturday Night’s Main Event. Goofy and over-the-top as the era could be, it still holds up today.

One issue with the rote formula for choosing the recent Hall classes has been the logjam created among the eighties stars that should be recognized. »

Scary Monsters: Heather’s Favorite Stand-Alone Episodes of The X-Files

22 January 2016 5:57 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Originally appeared in Deadly Magazine #5] While fans of The X-Files may have been drawn in by the conspiracy theory plots interwoven throughout the series’ nine seasons, there’s a lot to be said for Chris Carter’s “Monster-of-the-Week” approach, which gave us some of the greatest creatures and oddities to ever grace the small screen.

If you’ve ever wanted to check out The X-Files, but don’t necessarily desire the shadow government and alien cover-up mythologies, here are several great stand-alone episodes that can be enjoyed as mini-horror and/or sci-fi movies—even if you aren’t well-versed on all things Mulder and Scully.

“Humbug” (Season 2, Episode 20): In “Humbug,” FBI Special Agents Mulder and Scully are called down to a trailer park in Florida where a string of mysterious murders have targeted a community of retired freak show performers for years. What they uncover is something akin to the cult classic film Basket Case »
