John Oliver Showcases 'Last Week Tonight's Absurd Unused Graphics

26 May 2015 6:55 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver was off this Memorial Day Weekend, but, like a fourth hot dog eaten long after the BBQ has ended, the show satiated fans' cravings with a bonus web clip featuring selections from its trove of unused graphics.

While striking images, such as Paul Giamatti dressed as a mango, have appeared on Last Week Tonight, Oliver showcased a slew of nixed graphics without noting their accompanying jokes. To start, he trotted out a parade of arbitrary animal images such as a panda king, a blind »

Pamela Anderson ready to play the field after divorce

21 May 2015 3:40 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Pamela Anderson intends to date multiple men. The 47-year-old model recently divorced husband Rick Salomon for the second time, and opened up about how she wants her love life to be now she is single again. While appearing on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' on Thursday (21.05.15), she laughed at the idea of seeing ''someone new,'' to which Ellen said, ''Don't make a face like that. You're gonna date people, aren't you?'' But the blonde beauty surprised the host with her response, smiling and saying, ''Plural. Yes.'' Although the former 'Baywatch' star has been married four times to three different men - Rick, Kid Rock and Tommy Lee - she insisted she still hasn't ruled out the idea of getting hitched again in the future. When asked if marriage is something she'd consider again, she explained: ''I don't know. Who knows? It's the romantic notion. ''You never know! »

This classic '80s werewolf movie is getting a remake

6 May 2015 11:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The most shocking part of this story: that no one remade "The Howling" before this. Upstart production company Emaji Entertainment has announced that they're "rebooting" Joe Dante's 1981 werewolf classic "as the first in a series of films based upon well known film properties," which is exactly what we need more of. The original film starred the incomparable Dee Wallace as a TV news anchorwoman who is sent to a retreat after a near-fatal encounter with a serial killer and begins to suspect that the residents there may not be what they seem. Spoiler alert: they're hairier than they first appear. The film is notable for being released at a high point for werewolf movies, as John Landis's "An American Werewolf in London" was put out the same year. Both featured groundbreaking transformation sequences -- a 21-year-old Rob Bottin was responsible for the grisly third-act transformation in "The Howling, »

The Party-Vomit Theory of Silicon Valley

10 April 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Recently, the cultural blogosphere went nuts over a film criticism video, “First and Final Frames,” which juxtaposes the opening and closing shots of critically acclaimed films. The thesis of "First and Final Frames" proposes that by understanding the first and last shots of these films, we can better understand what directors are trying to do with their work as a whole. With this in mind, let’s talk about the first season of Silicon Valley, whose first shot shows a tech party, and whose final shot shows a tech entrepreneur vomiting.To recap: The party in the opening scene is thrown by a friend of one of the four start-up builders at the center of the show; the friend has just sold his company to Google for hundreds of millions of dollars, and now he’s throwing a party headlined by Kid Rock. Months elapse before we arrive at the »

Preview: 'Silicon Valley' Season 2 Doesn't Tinker With The Comedy Code Of Season 1

9 April 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At the end of season one of "Silicon Valley," I noted in my review that "comedies often need a season to work out their tone and find their groove" and though it's patchy, "the best is yet to come from this show." And as far as the first three episodes of the second season of the tech valley series are concerned, Mike Judge's writers' room seems to have concluded "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." It should be noted from the start that the season kickoff "Sand Hill Shuffle" is probably the weakest of three episodes sent to press. Just like the first season's debut "Minimum Viable Product," the episode starts with a big event where our nerdy ensemble don't quite feel comfortable. Instead of Kid Rock revving up a start-up party, the Pied Piper team, having just won TechCrunch Disrupt a few weeks earlier, are now being »

DVD Review – Silicon Valley: The Complete First Season

25 March 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen reviews Silicon Valley: The Complete First Season…

In the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. A comedy partially inspired by Mike Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late 1980s.

Remember those kids in school? The ones who were glued to computer screens instead of playing football with the “cool” kids? Of course you do. They were usually picked on, beaten up, bullied to the point of being afraid to leave their bedroom. Perhaps you were one of them. Perhaps you were one of the kids who kicked their heads in during lunch. Well, those nerdy computer kids now rule the world. Silicon Valley is about those kids. And it’s brilliantly funny.

Like The Big Bang Theory for grown-ups, Silicon Valley: The Complete First Season focuses on »

Bradley Cooper in Talks to Direct ‘A Star Is Born'; Beyonce Eyed for Lead

24 March 2015 3:28 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

After making Warner Bros. a boatload of money with “American Sniper,” Bradley Cooper is in negotiations to direct a modern take on “A Star Is Born” for the studio, an individual with knowledge of the project has told TheWrap. Cooper will produce through his WB-based company 22 Green along with Jon Peters, Billy Gerber and Basil Iwanyk. Clint Eastwood was previously attached to direct, and he had courted Cooper and Beyonce to star. The beloved singer has been WB’s top target ever since, though the project languished after Eastwood’s “empty chair” incident. Also Read: Beyonce Fans Swarm Kid Rock for Slamming Singer’s. »

Movie Review – The Gunman (2015)

20 March 2015 3:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Gunman, 2015.

Directed by Pierre Morel.

Starring Sean Penn, Idris Elba, Jasmine Trinca, Mark Rylance, Ray Winstone and Javier Bardem.

Synopsis:

A sniper on a mercenary assassination team, kills the minister of mines of the Congo. Terrier’s successful kill shot forces him into hiding. Returning to the Congo years later, he becomes the target of a hit squad himself.

In 2009 director Pierre Morel resurrected Liam Neeson’s career while simultaneously transforming him into an action star that as of late, is simply allergic to playing hard-boiled, down on their luck bad-asses that have a score to settle or someone to protect. You can’t go two months without Liam Neeson invading your local cinema, which makes the accomplishment of Morel’s Taken franchise that much more remarkable. So here we have The Gunman, which doesn’t star Liam Neeson but rather Sean Penn. Why? Maybe they thought lightning would strike twice, »

Two Truths And A Lie: A SXSW drinking game with Ari Shaffir and Big Jay Oakerson

19 March 2015 3:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Austin - This is a story about finger-banging to Kid Rock and marijuana gummi candies. Or, rather, it's a game about it. SXSW and St. Patrick's Day -- which both landed this week -- are in and of themselves drinking prompts, and a classic round of Two Truths And A Lie is how I found my way into an interview with comedians Ari Shaffir and Big Jay Oakerson. Both were on hand for a night of Comedy Central stardom in Austin. Shaffir hosted a live version of his popular web series-turned-tv show "This Is Not Happening," which is just finishing its first season run this week.  “What’s Your F@!?#ng Deal” boasted Oakerson's miracle crowd work, along with features from Nate Bargatze, Joe DeRosa, Todd Glass and Liza Treyger. Put them together for telling facts and lies? A lot of naked truths. Watch our video above and play along. »

American Sniper becomes highest-grossing 2014 release in the Us

8 March 2015 9:21 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

American Sniper has become the highest-grossing 2014 film release in the Us.

The biographical war drama, starring Bradley Cooper, has made $337.2 million in the country since its limited cinema debut in December.

Its earnings edge over previous number one holder The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, which has achieved $336.8 million.

Abroad, the Clint Eastwood-directed movie has earned more than $140 million, dwarfed by Transformers: Age of Extinction's $1.1 billion total.

Since its release, American Sniper has been the centre of intense political debate, with Michael Moore and Seth Rogen among its critics.

However, the movie has been defended by the likes of Sarah Palin and Kid Rock, who both thanked Kyle for his service to his country.

The movie has won several awards, including an Academy Award for Best Sound Editing and a Critics' Choice Award for Cooper as Best Actor in an Action Movie. »

Kid Rock Bashes Beyoncé, Feels Wrath of Beyhive

28 February 2015 9:11 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Beyoncé's fans are telling Kid Rock to buzz off.

On Thursday, the "Born Free" singer told the Rolling Stone that he is "flabbergasted"' by Beyoncé worship.

"Beyoncé to me, doesn't have a f**king 'Purple Rain,' but she's the biggest thing on Earth. How can you be that big without at least one 'Sweet Home Alabama' or 'Old Time Rock & Roll'?" he asked.

When the "Drunk in Love" singer debuted her fifth album, Beyoncé, in 2013, she sold over 828,000 albums in just three days.

Kid Rock explains the type of worship he's seeing, "People are like, 'Beyoncé's hot. Got a nice f**king ass.' I'm like, 'Cool, I like skinny white chicks with big tits.' Doesn't really f**ing do much for me."
