The People’s Court Judge Wapner Dies at 97

27 minutes ago

Before reality TV was truly reality TV and before Jerry Springer was really Jerry Springer, and before all the judge shows on TV were really judge shows on TV there was The People’s Court.  From 1981-1993 a familiar face presided over the court room from which that show was based: Judge Wapner.   Joseph Wapner died at the age of 97 today.   According the Associated Press, Wapner’s son David said his father was suffering from breathing problems and was admitted to a hospital last week. He returned home Friday with hospice care. Warner was a retired Los Angeles Superior Court Judge

Check Out this Gallery of Stranger Things Simpsonized Fan Art

1 hour ago

You might recall only about a week ago we featured an entire gallery dedicated to particular shows and movies getting “Simpsonized.”   This was all done by Belgian artist Adrien Noterdaem who is the creator of Simpsonized by Adn!  As a refresher, he posts new Simpsonized characters from pop culture often and they are very well done.   Not only is his attention to Simpsons detail unmatched but it’s nearly impossible to mistake the characters for anyone else than who he is intending them to represent. Among many others he’s done Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and Westworld.

Video Game Story Tells Us The Origin of The Legend of Zelda

2 hours ago

Just yesterday we shared a humongous infographic with you that went into every single Legend of Zelda game on every Nintendo ever.   With Breath of the Wild just around the corner, there’s absolutely no reason to stop the Zelda train from running.   We get us an amazing video from Youtube Channel “Video Game Story Time” which is an exploration of Shigeru Miyamoto.  It turns out When Shigeru Miyamoto was a child, he’d wander the hillsides of Sonobe Japan. One day, the adventures he went on would become the basis of the very first game in the Legend of Zelda franchise.

Bill Paxton Was the Guy That Played Every Man You Know

3 hours ago

Friends, colleagues and fans celebrated the life of actor Bill Paxton Sunday, after news of the “Training Day’ star died on Saturday. Paxton, 61, died due to complications from surgery, his family said in a statement. “Bill’s passion for the arts was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth and tireless energy were undeniable,” relatives said in the statement. In my estimation the best way to describe Bill Paxton is “he’s the guy who played every single other man you know.” Whether it was his humble beginnings as a street punk in Terminator, a crew member in Alien,

Homeland Season 6 Episode 6 Review: “The Return”

4 hours ago

Showtime has made this week’s episode of Homeland, “The Return,” airing on February 26 at 9 p.m., available early to viewers on On Demand. This review will discuss “The Return” with full spoilers. Please watch the episode before reading this article if you do not want to be spoiled. “The Return” officially marks the halfway point for Homeland Season 6, and while I wasn’t too impressed with the first few episodes from this season, which were decent enough but lacked the energy and emotion I’ve come to expect from this show over the years, the past three installments have kept my eyes

A Quick Warning to Billions: Reel it In Guys, Reel it In

4 hours ago

The season premiere of Billions was very solid.  I definitely enjoyed it and felt there was the right amount of drama, story, acting, everything we needed.   But there was one thing that scared me a little.  Could there be too much drama?  What I and I think many people loved about the first season of Billions was not only its authenticity but a sense of realism.  You truly felt you were getting an inside look at the Hedge Fund world and how the political landscape works in taking down criminal finance organizations. What you saw was believable.  While there were

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg Insulting Each other on the Scott Mills show is Hilarious

5 hours ago

Here in the United States we don’t get to see all of the funny stuff that celebrities do overseas.  While they engage in their fare share of humor, nothing is funnier than seeing a celebrity in a foreign commercial making a fool of themselves or catching some of their best moments on foreign talk shows.  While this isn’t exactly that, BBC Radio Show host Scott Mills has a segment that’s incredible which is called “The Insult Game.” For some reason this clip passed me by.  It’s from 2015 when Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell starred in the movie Daddy’s Home

John Mulaney, Nick Kroll Rip on Trump at Film Independent Spirit Awards

6 hours ago

John Mulaney and Nick Kroll had a chance to give it their all before being upstaged by the Academy Awards by hosting the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards.  After making fun of the awards show itself by ripping on how long the name is as well as the fact that it’s a matinee awards show, they wasted no time getting into politics.  The two biggest targets of their opening monologue were none other than Donald Trump and Mel Gibson. “We like to think of these awards as the ones without Mel Gibson,” Kroll said of the Oscar-nominated Hacksaw Ridge director.

I’d Really Like to See Sarah Butler Make It in Hollywood

7 hours ago

There was a movie on Lifetime last night called “Infidelity in Suburbia.”  I didn’t see it but from the title I’m pretty sure I get the gist of what the movie was about.  However, what I did take notice of was the movie’s star Sarah Butler.  I’ve never seen her before and I personally think she’s got “the look.”  The look I’m referring to is one of a starring role on a television show.  I liken Sarah Butler very much to Katie Lowes.  P.S. I went to high school with Katie Lowes but that’s an entirely different article.   Like Lowes,

8 hours ago

This is a cosplay story with a happy purpose not to mention quality result.  Meet little 7-year-old Layla.  Layla initially had issues with being shy until two years ago her mother helped her gain confidence.  Camilla Courts took her took her daughter to Disneyland’s Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and got her a dress. Their first photo came out so great that they have been cosplaying ever since.  It turns out that when Layla does cosplay it helps her “come out of her shell” and gain confidence in herself. Now the mother and daughter cosplay duo have an Instagram following of close

If The Academy Awards Really Wants to Send a Message to Donald Trump

9 hours ago

One of the bigger stories to come out of the Academy Awards this year is something that has nothing to do with the awards show itself.  It was actually the skipping of an Oscars party by some celebrities to attend an immigration policy protest.  Jodie Foster and Michael J. Fox led the rally and spoke in front of thousands of people in support of protesting Trump’s proposed immigration ban.  That got me thinking.  While all the news you’re going to see today will be dedicated to Academy Awards stories, us included, and rehashing some Oscars memories, here’s an idea for

A Fantastic Bill Gates Customer Service Call from Microsoft in 1989

9 hours ago

Well before Undercover Boss ever existed, Bill Gates was monitoring his company Microsoft like a hawk.  Little did people know just how involved Gates was in the day to day operations of the company.  Like any good CEO, Gates wanted to understand every single facet of what was going on in the company.  Some CEOs focus only on top level priorities like reporting to the shareholders or overall company strategy.  Not Gates. In 1989 Bill Gates decided to take a customer service call only referring to himself as “William.”    He solved the issue and the same customer called back specifically

Jared Padalecki Wants to Play Nightwing and New Fan Art Emerges

11 hours ago

Now that a Nightwing feature film is being talked about to no end, there’s all kinds of speculation out there as to who might play the hero.  Yesterday we found out that in a recent fan poll, people wanted Joseph Gordon-Levitt to play the part.  I argued against it and still agree with my stance.  While I’m sure he’d nail the role, he just doesn’t need it for his career right now.   However, a new name has emerged today:  Jared Padalecki. When asked straight up by a fan on Twitter whether Padalecki would like to play the character, he responded

This Guy Will Always Be Immortalized as Tom Cruise in Thailand

12 hours ago

I have no idea who either of these guys are but the one on the right has my utmost respect.  For the rest of his life people will say, “Remember that time someone pretended to be Tom Cruise in a small chicken shop in North Eastern Thailand and is remembered there forever?”  I mean seriously.  I have goals in my life but I’m pretty sure if I were remembered as Tom Cruise holding a piece of meat like that my life goals would easily be complete. The next time I go on a trip I’m really hoping a local poultry

State Trooper Makes Eye Opening PSA for “Pretty Incredible” Turn Signal

14 hours ago

Have you ever wondered why some drivers can’t seem to figure out how a turn signal works? An Indiana State trooper has created a video tutorial for those sometimes frustrating motorists. It turns out that the auto industry has made some incredible advancements in technology and safety in vehicles.    But did you know there’s a standard feature on every car that will not only help prevent crashes but also help to potentially prevent road rage. If you look at your steering wheel, to the left side of it there’s your turn signal.  When you push it down something pretty cool

Questions From Karate Kid III: What Kind of Painting Company is This?

15 hours ago

You might remember our last Karate Kid III question which involved a totally screwed up timeline.   We pondered how it was even possible that at what had to be at least 1am, Daniel would roll into John Kreese’s dojo only to find Terry Silver, John Kreese, and Matt “bad boy” Barnes all there waiting for him.  I mean this was just too coincidental.  What proceeds from there is Danny boy getting his non belt wearing tootsies kicked and Mr. Miyagi having to bail him out. Miyagi takes on Kreese and Silver almost simultaneously.  This is the infamous “Whaaaaa, Whaaaaaa” scene

A Supercut of Every Best Cinematography Winner Ever at the Oscars

16 hours ago

Earlier today we brought you a great montage of clips from every single best winner for animated feature.  Right now we’re bringing you a montage of clips from every film that’s won best cinematography.  Next to the writing, directing, and acting of a film, cinematography ranks right up there with music, editing, special effects.  I consider these to be the second tier elements that make or break a movie. When it comes to cinematography, a viewer isn’t necessarily supposed to be taken “out of the movie” to watch the scenery but at the same time movies contain such magical landscapes

Be Warned: Meryl Streep’s Oscars Dress is News Right Now

17 hours ago

As we prepare for the Oscars I feel that it’s important to mention that it’s not just the awards themselves that are big business.  Over the last decade or so, the red carpet itself has become a huge business.  With avenues like E! covering the event every year, the red carpet pre-game show is sometimes as popular if not more than the event itself.  The question “who are you wearing” has become synonymous with big time events like this.  So while I can sit here and complain that I think it’s ridiculous that it’s a big deal what people wear

Little Girl’s Wonder Woman Invisible Jet Cosplay Is Adorable

18 hours ago

I happen to be a huge fan of when parents involve their kids in creative cosplay.  Not only is it cute but there are times children bring in elements to the equation that simply cannot be matched by their older and adult parents.  That brings us to today’s cosplay.   You have to admit that this Wonder Woman balloon jet one of the cutest and cosplay displays in recent memory. It’s the work of Chicago-based balloon artist Smarty Pants and his superhero daughter Penny. With all of the pressure on Wonder Woman to perform at the box office, perhaps that should

Dear Patrick Stewart: Thanks for the All the Memories on X-Men

19 hours ago

I’m sure you’ve all heard the news by now.  Patrick Stewart has officially said “I’m done” with playing Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men franchise.   It looks like Logan will be the last time we get to see the bald headed mind reader on the big screen.  At 76-years-old can you really blame Stewart?   He’s been at this since 2000.   And even before that, in another life, Stewart was part of the Star Trek generation.  But I just wanted to give him a quick shout out. Dear Patrick, Back in 2000 no one had any clue that the humongous rise
