John Cleese has four important rules for watching “The Walking Dead” and one of them includes “there are no safe places.” The Monty Python co-founder wonderfully recaps the first six seasons of the hit AMC series in Now TV’s video “John Cleese talks The Walk(ing Dead).”
“Season 7 of ‘The Walking Dead’ is on the way, which I’m sure you already know,” he begins, “unless you’ve been living under a rock, hiding under a tank, or being held captive by a nutter with a baseball bat called Lucille. But I’m getting ahead of myself.”

In the recap he describes Rick as a “Clint Eastwood but a bit more sensitive,” Michonne as “Uma Thurman in ‘Kill Bill,’ but with an unsettling fondness for exotic pets” and gives the town of Woodbury one star out of four on TripAdvisor. »

His name is Donald Trump, The Donald if you’re nasty. Fresh off the heels of Trump insulting Hillary Clinton as “such a nasty woman” at the third and final presidential debate of the 2016 general election, the Internet has responded in fine fashion. Someone has made a mashup video (below) of Trump saying “nasty woman” dubbed over the hit song “Nasty” by Janet Jackson. It’s the latest in a number of musical mashups that have been inspired by the election. Melania Trump famously spouted out Rick Astley “Never Gonna Give You Up” lyrics at the Republican National Convention, and a video featuring. »

To mark National Poetry Day in the UK, we count down a dozen of TV’s best worst fictional poets…
The best words in their best order. That’s how Samuel Taylor Coleridge summed up the task of a poet.
Not everyone, however, can be Coleridge, nor can they follow his advice, as this slim volume of fictional TV poets proves…

In today’s TV news roundup, Ray Romano and Chris O’Dowd have been cast as the lead roles in the “Get Shorty” remake, Netflix has announced the premiere dates of their upcoming stand-up comedy specials and Michael Strahan is developing his first scripted series at ABC.
Ray Romano and Chris O’Dowd have landed the lead roles in Epix’s TV remake of “Get Shorty,” Variety has confirmed.

Romano will play Rick, described as a washed up producer of low-quality films who becomes Miles »

The pompadoured vocalist behind a string of '80s smashes hits found fame in the new millennium as a viral superstar thanks to the Internet craze known as "Rick-Rolling."

Here's the second of two interviews we've done with Matthew. The first took us behind the scenes on the development of the seemingly abandoned live-action Star Wars TV show he was hand-picked by George Lucas to work on, while this one looks at Childhood's End, as well as what he's up to now...

Melania Trump is facing allegations of plagiarism for her Monday speech at the Republican National Convention, but it appears she also borrowed lines from Rick Astley’s classic song “Never Gonna Give You Up.” “He will never, ever give up. And, most importantly, he will never, ever, let you down,” the former model said at the podium in Cleveland. It’s too bad her next line wasn’t, “He will never run around or desert you,” but the reference is still too obvious to ignore. Rick-rolling is a common Internet prank involving Astley’s 1987 pop hit “Never Gonna Give You Up” as a bait-and-switch, »

Preparing for potential first lady Melania Trump’s speech on the opening night of the Republican National Convention, a small, silly, snarky part of me was hoping she’d use the primetime exposure to promote the “timepieces and fashion jewelry” she sells at MelaniaTrump.com. #MakeAmericaElegantAgain

As you may have determined, there will be a Top Gun sequel at some point in the very near future. Jerry Bruckheimer teased an image with Tom Cruise a little while ago via his Twitter account, but since then things have gone a little bit quiet.
Cruise is currently shooting The Mummy for Universal and then he’ll reprise his role as Ethan Hunt in a sixth Mission: Impossible movie for Paramount. In between he’ll hit the road to promote the Jack Reacher sequel and then, hopefully, we hope he’ll turn his attention to Top Gun 2 – after all, the original film is thirty years old next year.
What we haven’t considered is who will direct it. As we all know, Tony Scott sadly passed away a couple of years ago, and his legendary shoes are going to be really difficult to fill.

While animated sci-fi series “Rick and Morty” began as a hallucinatory “Back to the Future” riff, in its second season on Adult Swim it’s turned more Philip K. Dick in its trippy embrace of alternate realities and alien worlds. Sociopathic scientist Rick Sanchez enlists naive grandson Morty in a series of mind-bending, intergalactic adventures, putting their dysfunctional family in continuous peril.
For creators Justin Roiland (“Adventure Time” voice actor) and Dan Harmon (“Community” creator), the first season was all about the crazy inventions, while the second concentrated more on exploration. “We’re trying to make sure that we never paint ourselves into a corner conquering the nihilism of an infinite universe,” said Harmon.
The comedy is both smart and low-brow with scattered sci-fi and other pop cultural references along with plenty of sex and scatological humor.
The flat animation style, meanwhile, evokes both “The Simpsons” and “The Ren & Stimpy Show. »

Forget new music Fridays; these are the only three songs you need for your weekend playlist. Technically they're new songs because they're remakes of older songs. '80s remakes to be exact. Amazing '80s remakes to be more exact. If you've always wanted to see Justin Bieber with Uncle Jesse hair, Ariana Grande with enough hairspray to save the world's flyaways or Adam Levine's face pasted on Rick Astley's body, today is your lucky day. Seriously, Maroon 5's "Sugar" as told by the "Never Gonna Give You Up" video is low-key actually good. The artist behind these remixes is Tronicbox, and wow, we hope there are more to come. We rounded up some of the masterpieces »

“A festival treasure that treats its subjects with a dignity that transcends judgment and a poetic sensibility that ranks it among the year’s most remarkable cinematic discoveries,” Variety’s Peter Debruge wrote of “Above and Below,” Nicolas Steiner’s graduation film at Germany’s Film Academy Baden-Württemberg, rating it among his top ten movies of 2015.
Other have shared his enthusiasm. Oscilloscope bought U.S. rights to “Above and Below” last year.

So much for the three-peat.
"Captain America: Civil War" could have come out on top for the third straight weekend. It could even have lost 45 percent of last weekend's business (when it earned $72.6 million) and still outdistanced this weekend's three new wide releases. Even after three weeks, you might still have expected the Marvel mega-movie to outdistance three seemingly-undistinguished newcomers: a period action comedy starring no-longer-a-box-office-draw Russell Crowe and never-really-a-box-office-draw Ryan Gosling; a Seth Rogen comedy sequel, and a cartoon based on an app that everyone thought was really cool six years ago.
Nonetheless, "The Angry Birds Movie" knocked down "Captain America," along with "The Nice Guys" (pictured) and "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising," as easily as a short stack of pigs. The cartoon earned an estimated $39.0 million, about $1 million more than distributor Sony had predicted. "Civil War" had to settle for second, with an estimated $33.1 million (down 54 percent from a »

The live action/CGI hybrid “Imaginary Mary” centers around Alice (Jenna Elfman, “Dharma & Greg”) a fiercely independent career woman whose life is turned upside-down when she meets the love of her life — a divorced father with three kids. This triggers even more upheaval when the slightly unhinged imaginary friend she created as a child suddenly reappears to help her navigate the transition from single girl to a woman ready for a family.
