There's nothing like a totally awesome (and really unexpected) celebrity movie cameo! It's always fun to be surprised when you see a famous face on the big screen you weren't expecting. Take the Austin Powers movie Goldmember: who knew the flick would start off with Tom Cruise playing Powers and Gwyneth Paltrow portraying the hilarious fictional character Dixie Normous. Then there's David Bowie's cameo in 2001's Zoolander. The music legend popped up to judge a super funny male model walk off between Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. And let's not forget Mike Tyson in The Hangover! So who takes the top spot as our favorite celeb cameo ever? Watch our Top 9 video now to look »

There are a special collection of films that the masses tend to endlessly gravitate around; films that the collective human race are somehow pre-programmed to re-watch over and over again on a regular basis, for no reason other than: “This… again!”
You know the films. Romantic comedies slapped with slightly suggestive two-word titles like Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman. Lengthy, hopeful dramas with life-affirming messages such as The Shawshank Redemption. Mainstream flicks with just a hint of edginess, like Fight Club. And, of course… anything that Christopher Nolan turns out.
Not that there’s anything nothing wrong with these particular movies; they’re popular for a reason, and people go back to them time and time again because they offer up a sense of tried and tested goodness – they’re comforting, like your favourite hot meal.
But whereas a lot of very popular motion pictures deserve their good reputations, »

Since when did it become cute to be suicidal? The latest in a long line of “Harold and Maude”-lin coming-of-agers to feature a misfit adorably determined to call it quits, “Coconut Hero” looks and sounds just like a dozen other emo teen-targeted dramedies, right down to its self-pitying protagonist (newcomer Alex Ozerov), a more-desirable-than-he-realizes “Perks of Being a Wallflower”-esque outcast who’s spared the inconvenience of offing himself when doctors discover a walnut-sized tumor in his brain. The fewer movies (of any sort) you’ve seen, the more likely you are to fall for such shtick, making this weepie ideal for young sensitive types. But even jaded auds have to admit the whole project starts to look impressive the instant one recognizes this ersatz Sundance-style indie was shot in Canada and written and directed by a pair of Germans.
So how did Tel Aviv-born Florian Cossen come to make an English-language, »

True Detective Season 2 70s Reboot
Last week, we showed you a remix of Ant-Man as a 1950s horror movie, and today Vulture is back with a new remix, which mashes up Season 2 of HBO's True Detective with the hit 1970s cop show Starsky and Hutch. Given the rather chilly response to this new season, many may think this remix is »
Quick! You’re a Food Network Star judge watching a contestant squander a live, four-minute cooking demo by rotely listing ingredients, offering no personal anecdotes and failing to even touch upon the improv-storytelling requirements asked of him by special guest David Alan Grier. You’ve got a ridiculously easy target for elimination, right?

Actually, hold up a moment. A second hopeful — despite his boss-level cooking skills and general adorableness during confessionals — sweats like he’s midway through a triathlon, freezes up after only 60 seconds, then »
When Denis Leary stopped by TVLine’s Comic-Con Suite at the Hard Rock Hotel, he thought he was just going to plug his upcoming FX series, Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, and that would be that. Instead, he found himself getting sucked in by the “judgmental and disappointment vibes” that he got from our founder and Eic, Michael Ausiello.
In fact, the Rescue Me alum fell so hard for the boss’ shtick that before the Q&A was over, he was insisting that Ausiello should — no, needed »
If you told me last week that my Q&A with Mike Tyson would rank among my favorite moments from Comic-Con 2015 I would’ve laughed in your face. But one of my favorite moments it was.
Not only did the artist formerly known as Iron Mike dole out fresh intel about Season 2 of his eponymous Adult Swim ‘toon Mike Tyson Mysteries (premiering this fall), but he dropped a massive — and potentially controversial — scoop about the video he recently shot (presumably) for Madonna’s upcoming Rebel Heart Tour. »
Mike Tyson says he wouldn't have had to worry about being put on blast on Twitter back in his heyday -- because when it came to girls, "They told anyway, so it was just like Twitter." Tyson was at Lax with his wife Lakiha when we asked if social media makes it harder for celebrities and pro athletes to keep their private lives private ... and Mike told us, for him it wouldn't have mattered.

Nintendo Entertainment System (1985)
The Japanese video game giant Nintendo emerged as a global leader in the video game industry when it unveiled the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985. The Nes went on to become the best-selling gaming console of its time and thirty years later, the Nes still play a major influence on the entire industry. Now I’ve heard the argument that the admiration toward the Nes is largely due to nostalgia, but one can make that very same argument towards anything we hold dear, including any one of the consoles appearing on this list. However, the Nintendo Entertainment System stands the test of time, proven by the simple fact that gamers still purchase and/or play Nes titles to this day. And even though Nintendo stopped production of software for the Nes, the aftermarket library keeps growing, with countless new titles made by many diehard game designers who’ve »
LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have reunited ... all aboard an insane $29 Million yacht in the Bahamas ... TMZ Sports has learned. James and his wife, Savannah -- along with Wade and Gabrielle Union -- have been staying on a yacht called the Just J's ... a top of the line ship built in 2011 ... and owned by billionaire businessman Jay Schottenstein.

As we learned from one of Community’s best ever episodes, Ken Burns’ heralded documentary films are also ripe targets for parody. Now, Machinima is taking aim at Burns’ signature filmmaking style with a series called Real Fake History, a mockumentary that pretends pop culture stories are historical events.
Each episode of Real Fake History dives into a different pop culture franchise. Across ten installments, the series will visit everything from Starship Troopers to Game of Thrones to Mike Tyson’s Punch Out. The first episode, however, treads upon the familiar nerd territory of Star Wars by examining the Battle of Endor. Narrator Phil Morris (Seinfeld’s Jackie Chiles) leads the way, The Guild co-star Jeff Lewis provides the most comedic punch, and, as you might expect, the camera slowly pans across every single image it encounters. It’s pretty fun stuff, though the commenters seem more interesting in explaining how, »
