Must Watch TV: Terry Crews’ A Thousand Miles vs. Mike Tyson’s Push It on Lip Sync Battle

18 October 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I had to stop it midway through Tyson’s bit because I was just laughing too hard. Terry Crews and his pec-popping performance was interesting and pretty funny but Tyson coming out and just going off the wall nuts without really doing much to stay with the music was too much, I just had to bust up. Lip Sync Battle is something that you wouldn’t have ever thought would be a good idea for a show after the few scandals that have been seen to strike several artists throughout the years. However making it into something fun is paying off since

At the time, De Niro took the then-17-year-old under his wing and gave him some fatherly advice. “Early on in my career I spoke to Bob and Chazz about how profound changes would occur in my life,” Brancato, now 41, tells People. “They said once this movie goes out, you will have people around you who will expose you to dangerous things and you have to be careful. »

Critic's Notebook: 'Candyman' Still a Superior Slasher Movie at 25

15 October 2017 12:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

It was a year of scandals, protests and explosive racial tensions. In 1992, riots rocked Los Angeles in the aftermath of the Rodney King trial verdict, the U.S. sent military forces into war-torn Somalia, Mike Tyson was jailed on rape charges, and Bill Clinton was elected to the White House. In cinema this was the year of Basic Instinct, Malcolm X, The Bodyguard, Batman Returns, Bram Stoker’s Dracula — plus a little word-of-mouth hit by a young unknown director: Reservoir Dogs.

But the 1992 release that left a deeper impression on me than any of those listed above was Candyman. A superior »

The three founding members of Bananarama spent many cruel summers apart since Sibohan Fahey left the group in 1988. But after almost 30 years, the ladies have reunited to hit the road together for the first time.

Woodward, 56, and fellow Bananarama cofounder Sara Dallin went on to release numerous albums and tour together, joined by Jacquie O’Sullivan from 1988–91. Meanwhile, Fahey »

It was bound to happen sometime I suppose. Mike Tyson has been one of the more notable celebrities when it comes to controversy and even to this day his exploits tend to leave a bad taste in one’s mouth.
