9 Other Celebrities Who Could Also Pull Off Samuel L. Jackson’s Nehru Jacket

21 July 2011 7:00 AM, PDT | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

Samuel L. Jackson attended the premiere of Captain America at the El Capitan Theater in Los Angeles Tuesday. There were a whole slew of famous people there, including Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Piven, Mark Ruffalo, and Robert Downey, Jr. They all looked fab, or whatever the Queer Eye For The Straight Guys would probably say in 2004, but we’re not listening. We’re still very busy, unable to tear our eyes away from the sight of Samuel L. Jackson pairing a stunning Nehru jacket with white pants, sneakers, and a very fancy hat. It’s like one of the Real Housewives went to the Kentucky Derby and had sex with Levar Burton circa Star Trek, and then they put Coke Bottle sunglasses on the baby, and that baby was really tall and very intimidating in films like Pulp Fiction and Unbreakable. There’s only a handful of other famous »

So You Think You Can Dance Results: Did the Right Contestants Crack the Season 8 Top 10?

14 July 2011 6:33 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Traditions were broken on So You Think You Can Dance this week: A Season 8 couple who hadn’t been in the Bottom 3 all season found themselves in jeopardy during tonight’s results show. The judges, for the first time in five weeks, eliminated a male and a female contestant who hadn’t been dancing as partners. Oh, and gloriously, both the show and its sublime host Cat Deeley found themselves nominated for Emmy Awards.

Should we pause here for a moment to offer a slow-clap for the best host in the reality TV game? Dee-Ley! Dee-Ley! Dee-Ley!

Ahhh, that felt good, »

Ten Awesome Movie-Star Cameos in Pop Videos

4 July 2011 12:08 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

To celebrate our newly unveiled Music section, we’re dusting off some of the older posts dedicated to that area of things, starting with this early offering from yours truly, which was about article number five after I joined what was then ObsessedWithFilm. Great to see I haven’t developed in any way…

Rumour has it that actors all want to be rock stars, the same way that musicians seek the “next level” of their career by turning their hand to acting. Whether that’s strictly true or not is a matter for debate, but what is certain is that the two trends have often combined to make both cinematic music videos (just ask 30 Seconds to Mars), but also to offer the magical sight of some of the world’s greatest acting talents (I’m not saying that’s true of everyone down below) getting their glam on in those videos. »

Bobby McFerrin Has Nothing On Amitabh Bachchan In Bbuddah's Thodi Thodi

13 June 2011 2:31 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Indian films have so many songs that I very rarely decide to post one here, but I thought this was fun.  Amitabh Bachchan's upcoming feature Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap is set to release on July 1st and they've released the soundtrack in stores, and this very interesting song and video for the song Thodi Thodi. The most interesting thing about the song itself is that, according to Bachchan via Twitter:go watch ..thats the 'acapella' version .. every sound you hear, mine / 'Acapella' a style of music and singing where every sound is from one voice .. so .. Bhtb theme is in my voice, even the instrumentsSo, in the style of the above-mentioned Bobby McFerrin (Don't Worry, Be Happy), Amitabh Bachchan has created every »

Short Film Showcase - Knick Knack (1989)

21 May 2011 12:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Knick Knack, 1989.

Written and Directed by John Lasseter.

Original Music by Bobby McFerrin.

The final computer animated short produced by Pixar before the release of their debut feature Toy Story in 1995, Knick Knack revolves around a snowman, Knick, who finds himself trapped inside a snowglobe while the rest of the souvenirs on his shelf are enjoying a party in the sun. Desperate to join in the fun, Knick employs a number of methods to break free of his glass prison and eventually finds a means of escape, only for his plan to backfire on him.

Knick Knack was Pixar's first foray into 3D and premiered in this format at the 1988 Siggraph Animation Show. It was later completely rebuilt for a 2D theatrical release alongside Finding Nemo, with this new version incorporating reduced breast sizes on two of its characters, the Miami bikini girl and the Atlantis mermaid.
