'Arrow' recap: Mama knows best

4 hours ago

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the April 23 episode of Arrow, stop reading now! Seriously. Stop. You’ll regret it. Don’t even glance down a little bit. I mean it.

Wow. Just wow. For some reason, it never occurred to me that Slade would re-enact Ollie’s island choice with Thea and Moira, but it made perfect sense. That being said, his decision to do it with the world’s biggest sword — that appeared as if from nowhere — was interesting, but that doesn’t matter right now. No matter how it happened, Moira is dead, and I’m heartbroken. »

'Survivor: Cagayan': And the eliminated contestant is...

5 hours ago

Dalton Ross won’t be in this week to serve up your usual dose of Survivor recap pandemonium, but luckily for us all, there wasn’t too much pandemonium to be had this week. [Spoiler Alert: Don’t read on unless you’ve already watched tonight’s episode of Survivor: Cagayan.]

Tony and Woo’s blindside of Lj last week may as well have never happened, since it didn’t register with anyone else in the alliance except Jefra, who briefly debated switching sides in response to Tony’s lying. Ultimately, Trish and Kass convinced Jefra to stay loyal, and as a result the vote was down to Spencer and Jeremiah, with the latter unfortunately falling victim »

This guy is going to collect every VHS copy of 'Speed' in the world (also, he's taller)

7 hours ago

Have you ever loved a movie so much that you just had to own every single copy of it? More specifically, have you ever had such a targeted and specific love for a movie that you had to own every single copy of it on VHS? Because Ryan Beitz has.

If you don’t recognize the name, allow me to formally introduce you to the guy who has made it his goal to collect every single VHS copy of Speed and then create his own Speed bus. And in case you’re wondering, yes. He’s taller than you. (Get it? »

'Nashville' joins proud tradition of unorthodox clip shows: 5 more that stand out

9 hours ago

So it’s come to this: A Nashville clip show.

Kinda. On Wednesday, instead of another soapy installment of country-fried drama, ABC will air an hourlong “On the Record Music Special” — during which Nashville cast members will “take the stage to perform show favorites then sit down in the Bluebird Café for acoustic performances and an intimate look at the songwriting process with the songwriters themselves.”

In other words, this is Nashville’s spin on one of television’s oldest, most reliable hole-pluggers and money-savers: the clip show. Like clip shows of old, this one will be centered on previously-seen »

'John From Cincinnati' is not on HBO Go or Amazon Prime, and it should be

9 hours ago

So HBO is coming to Amazon. This is good news, I think, insofar as anything that makes the great shows of the HBO Renaissance available to more people is good news. I’m a TV obsessive of a certain age — definition of “a certain age” freely covering anyone who remembers when “TV is better than movies” was an argument that you had to make, when TV-on-dvd was the technological forefront, and when the notion of “downloading” a TV show didn’t seem needlessly wasteful of valuable hard drive space.

Like several other Of A Certain Age TV Obsessives, I grow »

tUnE-yArDs channels 'Pee-Wee's Playhouse' for 'Water Fountain' music video

10 hours ago

Here’s your mid-week nostalgia fix, courtesy of tUnE-yArDs.

Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, that wonderfully weird cult kids show of the late ’80s, serves as inspiration for the band’s “Water Fountain” music video, and it’s quite charming.  While not an exact recreation of Pee-Wee Herman’s sweet digs, the play land coming from the brains of  tUnE-yArDs’ frontwoman Merrill Garbus and director Joel Kefali pays technicolor homage to that Sphinx-topped abode of yore. There are puppets, a cooking segment, and even a Chairy-like couch and dancing robot, a la Conky. Take a look:

“Water Fountain” is from the upcoming tUnE-yArDs album Nikki Nack, »

Mel Brooks to star in autobiographical one-man show

11 hours ago

At age 87, Mel Brooks is adding another first to his already iconic career: a one-man show.

Brooks is set to appear in a solo autobiographical play at Los Angeles’ Geffen Playhouse for one night only on April 28. In typical Brooks fashion, he’s serving as director, producer, writer, and actor for the “introspective retrospective” into his life and career.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, show producer Kevin Salter said, “What Mel wanted to do was to have a platform to tell some of these great stories that he has in an intimate fashion.” Brooks reportedly approached the »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'

12 hours ago

In 2014, it’s difficult to appreciate the awe felt by uninitiated audiences who saw Raiders of the Lost Ark in theaters in 1981. Think about the film’s opening scenes, which introduce Indiana Jones and his now-iconic fedora in the jungles of South America. He narrowly avoids getting shot in the back by his mutinous guides, proves his Zorro-esque expertise with a whip, cleverly maneuvers through the deadly booby-traps of an ancient Peruvian temple, flicks away tarantulas like they’re gnats, nabs the prized golden idol but sets off a chain-reaction of destruction that includes a giant boulder chasing him back out into the sunlight, »

Theme park ride-based movies: Will 'It's a Small World After All' follow the trend?

12 hours ago

Bad news: Walt Disney World ride “It’s a Small World” is reportedly getting its own movie. Good news: Uh…

“Small World” has a nice enough premise — ride a brightly colored boat through the world’s countries, learning about their cultures through cutesy animatronic puppets and song. But as for movie potential? We’re not so sure about that.

Disney has pioneered the movies-based-on-rides trend, and so far, Disney rides are the only theme park rides to ever be turned into films. And while its Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has done surprisingly well, other ventures into ride-based movies »

'Fargo' episode 2: Finding the Coen brothers Easter eggs

13 hours ago

The new FX drama Fargo doesn’t simply borrow themes, setting, and mood from its namesake 1996 film — it lovingly, sometimes quite obviously, pays homage to the entire Coen brothers oeuvre.

Here are the Coen Easter eggs that we picked up on in episode 2, The Rooster Prince:

The ransom note

From the cut-paper lettering to the sheer ridiculousness of the request, the ransom note Stavros Milos, the Supermarket King of Minnesota, receives is quite similar to the one sent to Mr. Lebowski in The Big Lebowski.

The demands from Milos: “I know about the money pay me 43,613 or I tell the world. »

A Peeps movie might be in the works, and we've got a few ideas

13 hours ago

Peeps: You either love them or you hate them. Unless, of course, you’ve never had them, which should probably be a crime.

But in case you don’t know, the Easter-themed candy consists of a marshmallow that’s covered in colored sugar crystals and most often formed into the shape of either a chick or a bunny. We know, based solely on that description, it seems obvious that this classic candy should star in a Hollywood movie, but up to now, it’s never been done. However, that might change!

According to Deadline, Adam Rifkin has optioned film and »

Listen to Fantasia and Dule Hill on three tracks of Broadway's 'After Midnight' -- Exclusive First Listen

14 hours ago

Tony nominations are just around the corner, and one of the titles you can bet will yield a fair amount of ‘em is After Midnight, the marvelously assembled one-act jazz revue now playing on Broadway. Since opening last fall, the musical has remained one of the most acclaimed shows of the season, and remained quite relevant due to a bright cast of rotating guest performers (recent months have seen k.d. lang, Toni Braxton, Babyface, and Vanessa Williams, the latter currently playing through May 11).

The very first Midnight crooner, American Idol and The Color Purple vet Fantasia Barrino, wowed audiences with her charged, »

Hear all the F-words uttered in 'Wolf of Wall Street' -- Video

14 hours ago

Screen Junkies, what tricksters! The YouTube channel put out a video Tuesday touting it was a supercut of just the “F” words in The Wolf of Wall Street. And by “F” words, they meant literally all the words that begin with “F” said in the film — save the actual F-word.

The video’s premise is a play on the number of times “f—” is uttered in the film, an unclear number that is somewhere in the 500s.

Check out the video from Screen Junkies — the same people who make the always-hilarious Honest Trailers – below: »

Mark Ruffalo posts first cast photos from 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' set

14 hours ago

Avengers Assemble! While filming for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron has been in progress since early April, today marks the first official day that all six Avengers — Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner – were reunited on the set, according to a tweet from Ruffalo.

Though that alone would have been enough to excite fans, the actor — seemingly well aware of what the public really wants — took things one step further by tweeting out a few photos of the cast posted on his Instagram and Tumblr. One photo shows the elusive Black Widow herself, »

This week's cover: 'Orange Is the New Black' scores a big (prison) break

15 hours ago

The ladies of Litchfield are back — and they’re ready for you to binge! After the first season of Netflix’s prison dramedy Orange Is the New Black premiered last July and became the network’s most-viewed original series debut, audiences clamored for more from the fascinating women of different shapes, sizes, races, socioeconomic classes, and sexualities who shared just one thing: They’re all behind bars.

In this week’s Entertainment Weekly, Jessica Shaw goes deep into the trenches on the show’s Queens, New York, set to get the lowdown from the inmates themselves. Series creator Jenji Kohan »

Rebel Wilson posts the first photo from the set of 'Pitch Perfect 2'

15 hours ago

I hope you have your pitch pipes ready, because things are about to get aca-mazing.

Rebel Wilson tweeted out the first photo from the set of Pitch Perfect 2, and even though it doesn’t feature Anna Kendrick or any of those Barden Bellas uniforms, it’s full of familiar faces. Specifically, Wilson is joined by Ester Dean, Brittany Snow, Kelley Jakle, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, and the film’s director, Elizabeth Banks.

From the looks of the photo’s background, I’m kind of hoping this turns into Pitch Perfect 2: The Streets. Imagine it: The Bellas join a rap/singing battle, »

'Daily Show' writer's 'Act of God' coming to Broadway, starring God

15 hours ago

Soon, The Book of Mormon won’t be the only show to rattle the religious on Broadway.

Former Daily Show head writer David Javerbaum’s new comedy An Act of God has announced its plans to appear to the Broadway masses in 2015.

The play is based on the book The Last Testament: A Memoir By God, which, according to press notes, was written by God and merely put onto the page by Javerbaum. The book is purported to be “the ultimate celebrity autobiography” and is associated with Javerbaum’s wildly popular @TheTweetOfGod Twitter handle.

Justin Bieber apologizes for visit to controversial shrine honoring Japanese war criminals

16 hours ago

Once again, Justin Bieber is making headlines for a photo he posted on Instagram. Luckily, this one has nothing to do with Anne Frank or urinating. It does, however, involve World War II. Intriguing, right?

While visiting Tokyo, the young Biebs paid a visit to the Yasukuni Shrine. As you may know, the Yasukuni Shrine is a big point of dispute between China and Japan, because it honors Japan’s fallen WWII soldiers — including those who committed major atrocities in Asia during the war. So when Bieber posted a photo of himself bowing his head at the entrance to the shrine with the caption, »

Lupita Nyong'o is 'People' magazine's Most Beautiful

17 hours ago

And People’s Most Beautiful goes to… Lupita Nyong’o!

The actress was announced as the recipient of People’s annual title Wednesday morning. Nyong’o told the magazine she’s thrilled about what this means: “I was happy for all the girls who would see me on and feel a little more seen.”

Nyong’o, born in Mexico and raised in Kenya, has been outspoken about the lack of black women in media — and how she hopes her success will serve as inspiration for girls who may feel like their skin isn’t light enough to succeed. At Essence »
