Great Scott! Two Back To The Future items in less than 24 hours! Actor/Comedian Tom Wilson, better known to you and your mom as Biff Tannen from the Bttf trilogy, is a guy who's probably approached all the time with inane questions about his role(s) in the time travel classics. In fact, he always is. His response? A song! Read more about Wilson over at his official website Right Here. »

Most people know comedian Tom Wilson as the guy who played Biff Tannen in the Back to the Future trilogy, which probably explains why he is consistently questioned about his experience on the films wherever he goes. Wilson decided to turn the answers into a song as part of his comedy act, so that it might save him time next time you catch him walking down the street and get the urge to ask him about Michael J Fox. The video was recorded at one of Wilson's gigs a few years back, but we're reaching into the archives as this is a slow week for content. Watch the video now, after the jump. You can read more about Tom and his upcoming appearances on TomWilsonUSA.com. »

You can scarcely swing a dead cat lately without hitting some kind of best-of-the-decade list (even though, technically, the first decade of the 21st century doesn't end till next year).
Well, here comes another one. Rather than try to construct another best-shows-of-the-'00s list, though -- something that's already been done here, there and everywhere -- I decided to focus on individual episodes from 2000-09. Are these the flat-out "best" episodes of television over the past 10 years? Probably not. But these are the ones that stick with me, that I can still remember not just for brilliant lines or beautifully constructed plots, but for how I actually felt while watching them. They are, simply, my favorites.
Here's my list, in no particular order. What's yours?
"Final Grades" ("The Wire")
HBO sent critics the entire run of season four of "The Wire" before it premiered in 2006. I had watched the first »
Call them "cult classics." "Guilty pleasures." "Comfort movies." We all have a mental rolodex of flicks that may not be terribly popular but, for one reason or another, they resonate in a very special way. Maybe you saw it at the right moment. Maybe you just see gold where everyone else sees feces. Whatever the case, these are the special favorites that you keep stashed away for sick days. Here are some of ours.
The time circuits are on, the flux capacitor is fluxing and I'm gonna take today's Sick Day Stash on a journey through time with the help of "Back to the Future Part III." The movie may be the weakest entry in this venerable trilogy but it's by no means a weak movie. Dare I say it's 1.21 gigawatts of marvelous?
There's none of the holographic flash of "Back to the Future II," with its sleek vision of the future (Hoverboards! »

Chicago – Behind every great fortune lies a great crime, as the saying goes. In director Steven Soderbergh’s “The Informant!,” he and Matt Damon carve out a satire where the “crime” becomes entangled with the larger issues of “justice.”
Rating: 3.5/5.0 In this based-on-fact scenario, Damon plays Mark Whitacre, who famously cooperated in the 1990s with the FBI as a whistle blowing insider to the Archer Daniels Midland (Adm) price fixing scandal. As a high-level executive at Adm, Whitacre was privy to meetings – many that he set up – where the price of a basic food ingredient was fixed through international skullduggery.

Oh, that rascal Lex Luthor. One day he’s CEO of his own diabolical corporation and the next he’s President of the United States. Then he goes and frames Superman for some impending disaster, and somehow Batman gets involved, as does everyone else in the D.C. universe. That’s the plot of “Superman/Batman: Public Enemies” in a nutshell, which will be based on a story by comic scribe Jeph Loeb. “Superman/Batman” is the latest movie in D.C.’s line of direct-to-dvd animated movies, following in the footsteps of “Green Lantern: First Flight”, “Wonder Woman”, and in my opinion, the best of the bunch, “Justice League: Final Frontier”. “Superman/Batman” is due out on DVD September 29, 2009, and will feature the voice talents of Jerry O’Connell, John C. McGinley, Allison Mack, Kevin Conroy, Clancy Brown, Cch Pounder, Robert Patrick, Michael Dorn, Tim Daly, LeVar Burton, »

Labor Day weekend is coming up, and it's a holiday that marks the end of the summer movie season along with summer itself. All the kids are heading back to the classroom for another dreaded year of school and (for those in L.A. like myself) the weather starts to cool... hopefully. While fall usually isn't seen as a cinematic hotbed, with the blockbuster summer season over, there are still plenty of quality films to check out at the box office. This year we have Megan Fox's possessed body, a sensational animated film and a new zombie adventure. There's a lot more that I'm looking forward to this fall, so here is a comphrehensive look at what you can expect from this fall movie season.
Check out the trailer for the movie if you haven’t seen it yet.

The trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s new pic, The Informant! is now online and you can see it below. What was initially thought might be a deep stare into corporate culture and whistle blowing looks like more of a black comedy, with Soderbergh bringing both Matt Damon and a little of the Ocean’s style to the film. Not only does it look like a lot of fun, but it’s weighed down with prime comedy talent, including Arrested Development’s Tony Hale, comedian Patton Oswalt and even Tom Wilson – yes, Biff himself...
