Jon M. Chu, the director of the Step Up films and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, is set to develop a new movie project called Can’t Touch This. As most of you know, that is the name of a popular song written by M.C. Hammer. The film is a high school dance comedy that will be set in the 1990s. Having grown up as a teenager in the '90s, the thought of a dance movie called Can’t Touch This made me laugh. I’m glad to hear that it’s going to be a comedy because hard to imagine a movie with a title like that could be taken seriously, unless they tackle it like films such as Dazed and Confused or American Graffiti. Those both had a good balance of drama and comedy.
Chu is definitely the best man for the job. This seems to fit in with »

Have modern movies increased our ability to accept outlandish heroes like the Ninja Turtles? Yes, and it's a good thing, James writes...
There's a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie out. It's a franchise reboot, bringing the iconic brand back to the big-screen in a fresh live-action feature. You're probably familiar with Tmnt having consumed the Turtletastic mythos in some format - comics, cartoons, older movies, videogames, action figures, Lego and/or Vanilla Ice music videos.
Don't worry if you're not clued up on this cowabunga business, though, because I'm going to break it down and run over the basics on which this mighty multimedia property is built. Here's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a nutshell - or rather, in a turtle shell - as conceived by comics creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird way back in 1984.
The basic story - or at least, the high concept - goes like »
Cast your mind back to 1996 (if you can) and remember that first time you started up Resident Evil. The sight of the live-action opening video, the unseen assailants ripping apart the S.T.A.R.S team and forcing them to take refuge in an old mansion, the ensuing exploration that brings you face-to-face with the first zombie in what can only be described as one of the greatest creature reveals in any game ever.
Sure, the dialogue was shoddy and the live-action video was marred by the Vanilla Ice-esque haircuts of Chris Redfield and Albert Wesker, but on the whole it was a masterpiece of game design. The location, the mood, the puzzles, everything came together in the perfect storm of horror gaming and has been forever considered one of the releases that sealed the success of the original Playstation. It’s notoriety spread far and wide »

Jimmy Fallon holds three things sacred: his family, his freedom and board games. On Tuesday night's episode of The Tonight Show, the comedian-host focused on the latter – but instead of bringing out his guests for a round of Clue or Risk, he explored ridiculous board game "stinkers" for a hilarious new segment called "Do Not Game." The funniest bit – available above – finds Fallon and Roots frontman Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter trying out the Vanilla Ice Electronic Rap game, which allows players to rap random phrases over a "beatbox machine."
Gwyneth Paltrow revealed she would have made her film debut alongside a '90s rapper, it wasn't for an influential family member.
The actress said she was offered the female lead in 1991's "Cool As Ice."

"My dad wouldn't let me do it," she said.
"I was like, 'But dad, it's like ...

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
"The Voice" coach Blake Shelton stopped by "The Tonight Show" and played a round of Random Object Football Toss with host Jimmy Fallon, in celebration of the start of football season on Thursday night. The pair attempted to throw items through a target, with mixed results, mostly because the objects were so odd (and mostly food-related). A bowl of eight-layer bean dip ended up making the biggest mess, though unsurprisingly, it was also the most fun for Shelton and Fallon to toss.
Shelton sat down with Fallon to discuss the host's recent purchase of a truck, with the country crooner offering up some advice on how best to care for the vehicle. »

A contender for the “Could Be Woise” prize among this year’s dogs of late summer, “Jersey Shore Massacre” is a kinda-sorta comedy slasher faintly affiliated (via exec producer JWoww) to MTV’s popular reality skein. Several beneficiaries of silicone and steroid enhancement hook up for a fatal party weekend in this knucklehead exercise, which is somewhat better crafted than it is written or acted. It has a few more brain cells than, say, “Zombie Strippers”; too bad they’re mostly owned by the tech contributors. Still, as willfully lowbrow dumb fun goes, it’s pretty painless. Home-format prospects will rapidly outpace any theatrical hopes in the pic’s multi-platform release Aug. 22.
After a de rigueur bloody prologue, we’re introduced to the central bimbette sextet, half of whom are employed at Brooklyn’s Touch of Class hair salon with the inevitable mincing-gay-stereotype figure. Teaming up with three pals, they »

Advice to reader: It's best to watch the following videos with Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" playing on repeat. The summer has taken a decidedly chilly turn since celebs began accepting the Ice Bucket Challenge - you know, the social media-driven stunt that's been dominating your newsfeed this month in an effort to raise awareness and money for Lou Gehrig's disease. (Participants must decide within 24 hours whether they want to dump arctic H2O on their heads or donate $100 to the Als Association in the most common variation of the challenge.) Cold water, bikinis, a good cause: Really, it's »

Being a born and raised Jersey native, nothing makes my blood boil quite like MTV’s grossly unrepresentative cultural abomination, Jersey Shore. You know what I remember about going “DTS” with my “bros?” Gigantic slices of mutant pizza, saltwater taffy, playing Can Jam on the beach, and getting busted with open containers. No grenades, no “Gtl,” no oafish gorillas fighting over female Oompa Loompas constantly out-sleazing one another. Yes, Jersey Shore disgusts me, and even though its abhorrent television reign has ended, Jennifer “Jwoww” Farley has decided to produce a horror movie about a bunch of guidos and guidettes being slaughtered, because sometimes our faith is tested in strange, unexpected, and unwanted ways. Yes, Jersey Shore Massacre was my greatest test of cinematic faith yet, and let me tell you, there aren’t enough cleaning products in the world to wash off the layers of spray-on tan, tomato sauce and »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is currently the number-one movie in America — a development largely viewed like it's a plot by the evil Shredder himself. Technically directed by Jonathan Liebesman, this blockbuster reboot bears the stamp of its superstar producer, Transformers maestro Michael Bay: a sturdy children's-toy concept sits uncomfortably alongside destructive urban combat and awkward double entendres about turtle erections. Garnering bad reviews from both film critics and nostalgic fans, it nonetheless displaced its direct competitor, the much, much better-liked Guardians of the Galaxy, to seize control of the box office. »
The 75-year-old magician and his 55-year-old wife and former assistant - who have been married for 26 years - are reportedly in last minute talks with Channel 5 producers to take part in the summer series on August 18.
So, as we anticipate the possibility of Paul and Debbie in the house, we thought we'd celebrate with a selection of classic pictures of the »
The news as of late has been unrelentingly sad. It's important to stay abreast of current affairs, but sometimes you need a break from all the violence, war, mayhem, and utter sadness. Which is where these pugs come in.
In this version of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze," these tiny pug nuggets manage to take a break from nibbling on each other to fight pizza-stealing bad guys, Shredder, and two new baddies named Tokka and Rahzar. As an added bonus, Vanilla Ice shows up -- well, not the real Vanilla Ice, but a reasonable cardboard proximity thereof. It's super cute, and maybe just what you need on a day like today. Can you believe it's only Tuesday? It's only Tuesday.
If you'd like a good cry, here are some photos of Robin Williams and his pug Leonard, whom he'd adopted from Curly Tail Pug Rescue. »

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle franchise celebrated three decades of existence in May. Like so many 30-year-olds, it’s made a few mistakes along the way. And so, on the occasion of this weekend’s vaguely anticipated, generally feared Michael Bay-ified reboot, here’s a look back across the wide expanse of the Tmnt-verse that seeks to answer one question: What are the 37 worst things this franchise has ever created?
1. The Neutrinos.
Hot-rodding alien hipsters who look like what happens when Grease gets restaged by five-year-olds dressed up as British punk rockers by their sociopathic stage parents. Sample line of dialogue: “Cool? »

In anticipation of the release of the new Ninja Turtles movie, Screen Junkies has released an Honest Trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze. The movie wasn't as good as the first one, but as a kid I still enjoyed the hell out of it. I haven't seen this sequel in years, and after watching this latest Honest Trailer it's one that I don't think I'll be revisiting anytime soon.

I'm a huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan and have been since the black-and-white comic book days of Mirage Studios in the mid-'80s. My teenage years are marked by notebooks full of turtle sketches and crazy, mech-inspired renditions of Shredder. By the time the cartoon series hit afternoon TV and the first live-action film exploded box offices, Tmnt was everywhere, and I couldn't have been happier. And then, as these things often do, the market became saturated. The comic book ended. The cartoon was cancelled. And Vanilla Ice recorded a Ninja Rap. The Turtles were over.
Since then, there have been reboots. There were a couple of attempts at new cartoons. A live-action TV series with the fifth turtle, Venus (yes, a female) and assorted toy and video games hit here and there, but that magic that Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird captured in 1984 was seemingly lost.

What happens when you put four mutated talking turtles into a crammed elevator, armed to the teeth and on their way for a showdown to save the city? A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles beatbox clip, of course.
This new look at the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot film makes two homages to its source material in hopes of attracting the crowd with a soft spot for nostalgia. The first is the beatbox, a recollection of the Vanilla Ice 'Ninja Rap' from the 1991 sequel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. The ninjas didn't discover their taste for rap until that sequel, and that's probably part of the reason why the sequel wasn't as well received as the original film.
The second is the use of the term "Cowabunga," the ninja's battle cry. From the sounds of the clip, the ninjas haven't used this word since their childhood »
You've seen the music video, now go behind-the-scenes with Wiz Khalifa for a look at how the theme song came together for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. With 'Shell Shocked', Wiz, Juicy J and Ty Dolla $ign have created a new Ninja Rap for this generation. Wiz takes us on the set for a look at how the video came to life, and what was needed to reimagine the iconic 'Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go!' mantra created by Vanilla Ice nearly 23 years ago in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze.
We also have a second TV spot featuring Leonardo, and if you missed it the first time around, take another look at the Shell Shocked music video itself! And we have a spoof of the video from Funny or Die with New Girl star Lamorne Morris.

The “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” franchise and hip-hop have had a close, close bond. Well, to be honest, it’s close but also somewhat contentious–some would argue that Vanilla Ice single-handedly ruined the franchise with “Ninja Rap.” But we’ve got hip-hop joining forces with the turtles once again in this clip from the film. In the clip, which originally premiered on Yahoo, you’ll see the teenage turtles running right into the middle of some henchmen before escaping by getting into the elevator. On the long elevator ride up to take on Shredder, the turtles make use of the time to beatbox. The results are below. “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” is directed [ Read More ]

Megan Fox has been an open book on this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles publicity tour. She told passionate Tmnt fans to fuck off. She has professed love for Secret of the Ooze, and Vanilla Ice.s "Ninja Rap" (because, duh). And she just revealed a hidden cameo, despite admitting in an interview that she.s probably not supposed to give it away. No one tells Megan Fox what to do! Right, Michael Bay? Fox was chatting with ComingSoon about potential Easter Eggs in Jonathan Liebesman.s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and paused briefly before breaking down and revealing: Baxter Stockman is in the movie. You just have to really look for him, but he.s there." Want to listen to Megan Fox.s own comments in context? Give this clip a spin. So, who exactly is Baxter Stockman? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans know that he.s a scientist who »
