26 August 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

"Sugar" Shane Mosley and Ricardo Mayorga just got put over the Wbc's knee and given a metaphorical spanking for that ass-slap during their pre-fight news conference. The World Boxing Council called out both fighters for what it calls an "embarrassing fight simulation." While most fans took Mayorga tapping the butt of Mosley's Gf for what it was -- great publicity -- the Wbc feels it could have been dangerous. In short, it says just because »

Apollo Crews Is The Name Of WWE Nxt Newcomer Uhaa Nation

5 August 2015 9:07 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Apollo Crews will be the WWE name of standout independent wrestler Uhaa Nation. The name was announced during this week’s WWE Nxt broadcast. It was also announced that he’ll make his WWE TV debut at the Nxt Takeover Brooklyn event on August 22.

The inspiration for the name appears to be from the fictional boxer Apollo Creed from the Rocky movies and Crews is the same last name as actor Terry Crews, who has the look of a professional wrestler.


He isn’t the first wrestler to do something like that since Christian (Cage) got his name from actors Christian Slater and Nicolas C age. Tyson Kidd got his name from boxer Mike Tyson and basketball player Jason Kidd, so getting names off famous people is more common than you might think.

The reason WWE makes their performers change their names is because they want to trademark everything. »

8 Inherently Annoying Movies That Everyone You Know Seems To Love

17 July 2015 12:23 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

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, »

Film Review: ‘Coconut Hero’

16 July 2015 3:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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.

Food Network Star Recap: Designated Bitter

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?

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.
