Vanilla Ice - News Poster


You Have to Hand it to Vanilla Ice for Having a Net Worth of $18 Million

Some people cringe when you mention that they were Vanilla Ice fans back in the day. But that cringe should really be turned into a look of surprise when you realize that he’s still worth about $18 million. It’s not a huge sum when you’re talking about celebrities really but it’s a lot more than you might think about when you consider that his reputation and his music tanked back in the 90’s, well over two decades ago. He tried making a comeback as V-Ice but that went absolutely nowhere, and he tried making his name big again through being

Vanilla Ice’s ‘Ice Ice Baby’ Honored by the Smithsonian (for Some Reason)

Vanilla Ice’s ‘Ice Ice Baby’ Honored by the Smithsonian (for Some Reason)
For some diehard hip-hop fans, they may need to stop, regurgitate and listen to this one. Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby” is about to be honored by The Smithsonian. Seriously. The world’s largest museum and research complex is putting together a wide-ranging nine-cd set titled, “Smithsonian Anthology of Hip-Hop and Rap” that includes the widely-mocked 1990 hit single. (On a side note — why does the Smithsonian still think people want CDs?)

Zac Efron Picks Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson as His Dream Love Scene Partner: 'He's Perfect'

Zac Efron Picks Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson as His Dream Love Scene Partner: 'He's Perfect'
Zac Efron got Vogue’s 73 Questions treatment — and revealed some pretty amazing tidbits from his life.

The best one? Efron doesn’t hesitate when he names Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the person he’d like to have a love scene with.

After saying that the former wrestler was “absolutely amazing” to work with on Baywatch and adding that he’s “perfect,” Efron chooses Johnson for a logical reason: to “finish what we started.”

Efron is obviously referring to the memorable kiss the two shared in summer comedy; a follow-up sounds just as hilarious.

The interview also revealed that a

Game of Thrones Cast Sings Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby”

Ever get the feeling that there are just aspects of pop culture that aren’t meant to be forgotten? When Vanilla Ice came on the scene he was one of the most popular artists around. His sound was so powerful that was able to make people get up and dance or at least move with the music and tap their feet accordingly. And then he just went away somehow. Well, we know why he went away, it was because that song was really all he had in the tank. Once it was out and the popularity had ended for the most

1999’s Inspector Gadget, and its hugely underappreciated gag

Simon Brew Aug 15, 2017

There's an end credits gag in Inspector Gadget that's up there with much of what Marvel offers you once the film's over...

Lots of people don’t like the Inspector Gadget movie. Released in 1999, Disney certainly had high hopes for it, earmarking it as a key blockbuster for that year. Tellingly, though, Rupert Everett would not inaccurately describe the film as “the $100m mess” in his memoir, Red Carpets And Other Banana Skins.

He went further. Talking about the elongated days of shooting on the movie, he wrote that “behind the scenes lurked a panel of executives, each with their own theory and agenda. A string of writers had written version after version, each adding to our scripts on a different-coloured paper, each one losing the plot a little bit more, so that by the end, or rather the beginning, they had managed between them to render

Trailer unleashed for Last Rampage starring Robert Patrick

So Robert Patrick played one of the premiere villains of all pop-culture with the iconic T-1000. His career hasn't reach those heights since, but he's had small roles as disapproving fathers since (if you don't count his Vanilla Ice impression in Double Dragon). But Patrick is going full villain again in the latest film Last Rampage, "the true story of the infamous prison break, of Gary... Read More...

Michael Davis: Milestone is Dead 2: Long Live Milestone

  • Comicmix
This article processes some hard truths many won’t like.

The first part of this narrative, Milestone Is Dead, got a lot of people talking.

Nothing and I mean nothing in that article was new. I’ve written about what and why I thought the holdup at Milestone was many times. The only thing that was new was the title.

Every move Milestone has made I’ve predicted beforehand, and done so in writing.

But as always put a new spin on an old point, and people see something bright and shiny and want to play with it.

Now people are paying attention.

Paying attention to see whether or not I’m going to throw more shade at my former partners. I didn’t throw any in the first place. I told the truth Milestone 2.0 formed almost seven years ago, and there are no books.

Milestone is dead for four reasons.

The next episode of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is just around the corner!  Find out when you can download and what it'll be about!

Fans who played Episode 1 of the latest Telltale Series, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, won't have to wait too much longer to continue the story of the galaxy's favorite misfits.  On June 6, Telltale Games will release the next episode, entitled "Under Pressure".

If you didn't inherently start humming the beat of Queen's Under Pressure then you need some culture, my friend.  If you started humming the beat of Vanilla Ice's Ice Ice Baby then you owe royalties to Queen.

Movie to Show My Son: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Welcome to another installment of Movies to Show My Son. This is the blog series were I discuss movies I can’t way to show my son in the future. I’ll be covering my own personal experience with the movie, movie and life lessons I hope he will learn, and lastly my concerns about showing said film. This week’s film is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Personal Memories:

Of all the properties I enjoyed as a kid the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the one I have the most nostalgia for by far. A big reason for this is just how much of my childhood it took up. I was the prime age when turtle fever hit and absorbed it as many ways as I could. I owned the toys, played the video games, watched the cartoons, and of course saw all the movies.

This Restaurant Recreated the Extravagant, 10-Course Meal Served on the Titanic
To honor the 105th anniversary of the Titanic ship sinking in 1912, Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen and Bar in Winston-Salem, North Carolina partnered with the Winston-Salem Wine Market to develop a dinner that reflects what the passengers ate while aboard the ship.

The prix-fixe meal, which cost $125 a head and included 8 wines, featured food inspiration from the original menus discovered after the ship sank. The 20 guests who attended the April 15th dinner also played Titanic trivia in between courses.

To make the robust three-hour meal a little more doable for modern times, the restaurant’s chef Tim Grandinetti told the Winston-Salem

Late Night Hosts Mock Sarah Palin, Kid Rock, Ted Nugent Visit to White House

Kid Rock, Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin's White House visit this week was the target of multiple jokes from late-night shows on Thursday, with James Corden, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon all poking fun at the famous visitors.

Corden, in particular, seemed to enjoy the photo Trump's guests took with the president in the oval office.

"For once, Trump really was the smartest person in the room," he said, laughing, on The Late Late Show.

"Look at this photo," he exclaimed. "They are one Vanilla Ice away from the next season of The Celebrity Apprentice."

Film Review: Adam Sandler’s ‘Sandy Wexler’

Film Review: Adam Sandler’s ‘Sandy Wexler’
Depending on whether you love or hate Adam Sandler movies, you can hold old-school talent manager Sandy Wernick at least partly accountable for having encouraged his career. Wernick signed Sandler at age 22, three years before “Saturday Night Live” snatched up the young comedian and made him a star, and Sandler has remained loyal ever since — so much so that he’s built his latest sketch-stretched-far-past-the-breaking-point, “Sandy Wexler,” as an in-joke homage to his longtime manager.

Sandler repays those years of service not with a big sloppy kiss of a movie, but rather a feature-length roast (though the word “sloppy” still applies) — one that amplifies the man’s nasal voice and off-putting fake laugh into an elaborate caricature of a hopelessly pathetic bottom-feeder. The roast approach isn’t a bad way to go per se, except that somewhere along the way, this project’s too-many-cooks left out the most important ingredient:

‘Sandy Wexler’ Review: Adam Sandler’s Newest Netflix Comedy Helps Explain Why He Keeps Making So Many Bad Movies

‘Sandy Wexler’ Review: Adam Sandler’s Newest Netflix Comedy Helps Explain Why He Keeps Making So Many Bad Movies
The “Lawrence of Arabia” of half-assed Adam Sandler comedies, “Sandy Wexler” is an epic period piece that spans 10 years and 131 minutes of mildly amusing mediocrity before climaxing with a Rob Schneider cameo where he plays a Middle Eastern man in full brownface — it’s awful, and yet it’s almost objectively Sandler’s best movie since “Funny People.”

Of course, quality has never been a very useful metric for measuring Sandler’s work, and that’s especially true now that we’re knee-deep in an eight-picture Netflix deal which guarantees that, for the foreseeable future, we can expect new Sandler films to arrive with all the predictably of seasonal allergies. Once upon a time, he was a cottage industry — now, he’s an assembly line.

But if “Sandy Wexler” is only the slightest bit funnier than “The Do-Over” or “The Ridiculous Six,” the third of Sandler’s streaming offerings is

Movie Review: Adam Sandler is funny again in the good-natured but overlong Sandy Wexler

They’ve never been critical favorites, but remember when Adam Sandler movies used to be kind of a big deal? Even given the usual Happy Madison stable of filmmakers and performers, keep in mind who has appeared in cameo or even co-starring roles in those movies: Jack Nicholson was in Anger Management. Reese Witherspoon played an angel (and Sandler’s mom!) in Little Nicky. Nicole Kidman contributed antics to Just Go With It. No such star power alighted Sandler’s first two straight-to-Netflix features. Who can even remember if John McEnroe or Dave Matthews checked into The Ridiculous 6 for a low-rent walk-on? (They didn’t, but Vanilla Ice did.)

Sandy Wexler, Sandler’s newest Netflix project, has a slightly hipper collection of celebrities on hand. They walk through the movie pretending to know the title character, an oddball showbiz hanger-on. In addition to the usual Saturday Night Live classmates

They’re Not Just Christina and Tarek 2.0! Plus 5 More Things You Should Know About Flip or Flop Vegas’ Bristol and Aubrey Marunde
Aubrey and Bristol Marunde are the newest dynamic house-flipping duo.

The stars of the first of Hgtv’s five national Flip or Flop spinoffs, the 13-episode series Flip or Flop Vegas, might bare some similarities to the original stars Christina and Tarek El Moussa — she’s a young mom with an eye for all things glam, while he handles the construction side — but the Marundes, both 34, are more than ready to put their own spin on the hit franchise.

“We think our show is going to be a lot different,” Aubrey, a designer and licensed realtor, tells People of the series,
