Ghostface Killah Finally Responded to Martin Shkreli's Video Threat With a Video of His Own

1 hour ago

In response to Martin Shkreli's early April Fool's joke, Ghostface released a non-apology on Tuesday. The 11-minute vid serves as part dis, plea, and ad (Wu Goo alert!), as the rapper ultimately calls Shkreli's history-erasing bluff and underlines the pharma bro's villain status. "You're a real killer, man," Ghost says, referencing Shkreli's notorious Daraprim price gouging. "You don't do that to the people, man. They need [Daraprim]. ... Right now you got them weak right now, because they don't even know where they're going to run to get their medicine from now. Because of you. You're a clown." Ghost's mother and sister also appear in the vid to echo the artist's message with an emotional punch: Shkreli promptly responded to Ghostface via Twitter — with hints of yet another rebuttal to come: Also, a poll, so everybody's opinions on the ongoing beefs can be known: »

Limitless Recap: A Bazillion Creepy Robots

2 hours ago

Limitless has a weird schedule. It came back, then it went on hiatus, but then a couple of episodes aired, and then it went on mini-hiatus again. I think it's definitely back this time. Maybe.Right from the get-go, we're shaking things up. Mike & Ike are interviewing a third "-ike" to join them in protecting Brian's life and keeping him medicated. Spike, as he's known, immediately endears himself to Brian by being both a heavy metal fan and a shameless lapdog. This week's case sees Brian return to Craft, the futuristic tech company that had a slight hiccup concerning sentient robot prosthetic arms. A researcher named Eloise Carlisle has been strangled. Eloise was working to hasten the Singularity, a theoretical event in which man and machine become one entity. Her job was to interview geniuses, then create so-called "mind files" that could be uploaded into robots. The software to catalog »

iZombie Recap: Who's the Boss?

2 hours ago

First, a programming note: "Physician, Heal Thy Selfie" was originally meant to be the season's penultimate episode. iZombie's initial episode order was for 13 episodes, but the CW upped it to 19 after the season began airing. Changes were probably made, but this episode still feels like it's driving toward an end. The show's many storylines slowly begin to converge. And finally, the Stacey Boss plot starts to get interesting at the precise moment it intersects with the Major and Vaughn of it all, further complicating Major and Liv's lives. When the episode opens, Liv is starving; she's been avoiding horny librarian brains. She and Ravi, who is suffering from a wicked hangover after a night out with Peyton, are summoned to the scene of a triple homicide near the docks. Unfortunately, the three victims have all been decapitated, which means no brains for Liv.   To satiate her hunger, Liv »

Pretty Little Liars Recap: Hiding in Plain Sight

3 hours ago

Look, Pll. I'm not asking for any of these episodes to make sense. Not in this real world where I reside, and certainly not in the Rosewood-world, where the time-space continuum is a mere suggestion that characters can obey or ignore at will. I'm not even asking for a solution to the mystery — mysteries? — of who A is at any given moment, or how Ali managed to talk to so many people on the night she was "killed," or how all the moms got out of that basement. But please, if you're going to be insane, for the love of Ashley Marin, be insanely entertaining! Anyway, the girls are ostensibly getting together to take down A by using the same tricks that never worked in high school — lying inconsistently, jumping to conclusions, tampering with evidence, not going to the police — but at least they're in it »

A Deadpool Sequel Has Already Been Approved

3 hours ago

Fox knows you're going to love Deadpool so much this weekend that the studio has already rubber-stamped sequel plans. THR reports the powers that be want to maintain the first film's creative team for round two, which would entail a quick and likely reunion for star-producer Ryan Reynolds and helmer Tim Miller. Original scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have already been re-attached to write the follow-up. Fan approval on everything from the movie's leaked test footage to the trailers have been loud and clear, but the trade notes an estimated $65 million opening box-office haul could be another justification for the quick greenlight. Though the sequel's story is still in the works, its existence could possibly mean a closer look at X-Force and will definitely mean another half year of naughty marketing virtuosity. »

Fresh Off the Boat Recap: What's Love Got To Do With It?

3 hours ago

For me, Fresh Off The Boat is at its strongest when it focuses on the kids and the culture. Riding off the high of last week's Chinese New Year episode and the glory that was Lao Ban Santa, I had high hopes for Valentine's Day, and was slightly disappointed in the results.The holiday itself is disappointing, so in a way, it's fitting that "Love and Loopholes" is a bit of a flop. Crafting a 22-minute-long episode of family-friendly television around this cursed Hallmark holiday is hard! I get it. They did what they could with what they had, and while it wasn't horrible, it was just okay. That's all.  Jessica and Louis are at dinner with Marvin and Honey, who, to their credit, are very much in L-o-v-e. While regaling Louis and Jessica with the story of their hot date of Afro-Brazilian dancing at Chi-Chi's — so hot, by the way, »

Theater Review: John Patrick Shanley's Wayward Prodigal Son

4 hours ago

A playwright enters dangerous territory when he attempts to dramatize his struggle to become an artist: a struggle that is supposedly resolved, or at least justified, by the artistry he now puts before us. When the play turns out to be less than thrilling — as was the case, for instance, with A.R. Gurney’s What I Did Last Summer — the disproportion between the setup and the result risks bathos, if not ridiculousness. John Patrick Shanley has often seemed on the verge of this sort of self-parody even in nonautobiographical works, like Doubt, that take dramatic fiction as close to the electrified fence of narcissism as possible without getting electrocuted. But that propinquity to danger is also where his power lies, a tricky problem that animates and partly defeats Prodigal Son, the latest of eleven plays of his to be produced by Manhattan Theatre Club.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Whatever Happened to Erika Jayne?

4 hours ago

Alright, let's just get all of this discussion about Yolanda Bananas Foster and her Lyme disease out of the way, shall we? Yolanda has Lyme disease. Her children have Lyme disease. As Lisa Vanderpump says, if Yolanda said her kids have Lyme disease, then who are we to question it? So, like Oprah handing out cars, it's Lyme disease for everyone.I'm really so annoyed that this conversation has become the cornerstone of the season. I guess that's what we needed to make things a little bit exciting. At least it's an issue that everyone can coalesce around, especially since Yolanda has been so (understandably) absent this season. This is the first season of any of the Housewives franchises in a long time in which I've actually liked all of the cast members (with the exception of Kyle, who I can at least tolerate). But, yeah, it can't all be »

David Schwimmer on Why He Wanted to Play Robert Kardashian in The People v. O.J. Simpson

5 hours ago

Among other things, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story reminds us of a time in American culture when the name Kardashian sounded foreign. The point is driven home in episode two, as the young Kardashian children watch TV reporters mispronounce their father’s name during a press conference. “Kardashian! Kardashian! Kardashian!” they chant from home. It’s a harmless embellishment designed to drive home the point: Things have changed. The press conference scene in and of itself was anything but humorous in real life. O.J. Simpson’s loyal friend, the late Robert Kardashian, somberly took to the cameras to read what he believed was Simpson’s suicide note, as Simpson and his friend A.C. Cowlings, drove up and down Los Angeles freeways in a white Ford Bronco. David Schwimmer, who plays Kardashian, says he was drawn to the project because it presents new insights into the people involved in the case. »

Behind The People v. O.J. Simpson’s Bronco Car Chase Episode

5 hours ago

For two days last May, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Malcolm-Jamal Warner journeyed up and down a Los Angeles freeway in a white Ford Bronco, recreating one of the most bizarre days in modern American history—the 1994 summer afternoon that 95 million Americans stopped what they were doing to watch as fallen hero and suspected murderer O.J. Simpson appeared to flee justice, on live television.By the end of it, Gooding Jr., who stars as Simpson on FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, felt like he was “having a nervous breakdown,” and Warner, who plays Simpson’s devoted life-long friend Al “A.C.” Cowlings, and the man driving the Bronco in tonight’s episode, was “very drained.” For Los Angeles motorists, it was disturbing moment of déjà vu. Officials allowed the closing of a mile-long southbound section of the 710 freeway near California State University, Los Angeles, but »

The People v. O.J. Simpson Recap: The Bronco Chase

5 hours ago

"Good for you, O.J. We're still in the game." So says Robert Shapiro after discovering, to his surprise, that his client has not killed himself and is currently leading the police on a slow-speed chase up and down a Los Angeles freeway. After reading what appeared to be his suicide note — signed with a deranged/whimsical smiley face in the O — Shapiro and Robert Kardashian both assumed O.J.'s disappearance was the prelude to his end.That certainly seems to be a real option for O.J., who is sitting in the back of the white Bronco with a gun to his head, effectively neutralizing any effort to pursue him more aggressively. As it happened on June 17, 1994, the rolling standoff paralyzed the entirety of L.A., cleared the freeway like a Hollywood set, and mesmerized Americans across the country, who watched it unfold for hours on television. Two decades later, »

Classic Cool Guy Johnny Depp Will Star As Invisible Guy in Cool Reboot of the Classic Invisible Man Story

5 hours ago

Johnny Depp, owner of cool hats and glasses, will bring his stylish and theatrical flair to Universal's Invisible Man. Deadline reports the actor is set to star in the reboot's titular role as a researcher who, if in line with H. G. Wells's original character, will turn himself irreversibly invisible, develop a comparable penchant for wide-brimmed headwear and dark-colored specs, and ultimately become a terror. The site notes nothing of helmer or timeline, but producers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are reportedly getting things going in a writers room. (THR says Men in Black's Ed Solomon could be the main scribe.) The project is definitely part of the studio's initiative to reboot a slew of classic monster flicks in what the trades are describing as a Marvel-esque shared universe — recall the similar Mummy business. But it's also possibly part of a secret campaign to bring back Depp's Willy Wonka »

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Recap: The Thoroughly Messed-Up Millies

5 hours ago

Given the massive episode orders they must fill, network sitcom writers are often tempted to subdivide their stories into neat A-, B-, and C-plots that don't relate thematically or dovetail together. That's why it's nice to see an occasional episode like "The 9-8" to come in and shake things up.The premise is a simple one: A busted pipe floods a neighboring precinct's office, so all the cops from both precincts have to share the Nine-Nine's tiny space. Thanks to strong writing and performances, including a great use of guest star Damon Wayans, Jr., the pieces fit together nicely. It's frankly impressive how much ground this episode covers in just 22 minutes, and how many strong jokes it's able to get in. Wayans, who departed B99's timeslot partner New Girl for the second time at the end of last season, proved himself to be a sitcom natural back in his »

Agent Carter Recap: How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb

6 hours ago

Agent Carter's second season will run for 10 episodes. If it had stayed at eight, like the first season did, I suspect the "The Atomic Job" would have been on the chopping block. Coming after last week's flashback-heavy meditation on Peggy Carter and Whitney Frost, "The Atomic Job" keeps things light and zippy — even as our heroes race to disarm a nuclear weapon that could flatten Los Angeles. That breeziness doesn't make it a bad episode; just a curiously inessential one.The episode opens as Peggy is awakened by Jason Wilkes, who has discovered that a tissue sample from Jane Scott — the "lady in the lake" corpse from the premiere — allows him to turn him solid for a brief period. (It also turns the whites of his eyes black, for unknown reasons that are almost definitely bad.) Jason's brilliant science brain has led him to a similarly brilliant »

The Muppets Recap: Unveil the Tail

7 hours ago

Whoa. I think … I actually liked this episode. I mean, the show finally remembered that Camilla exists. Though my heart broke when Camilla left Gonzo, thereby ending television's most romantic relationship, I am thrilled that she's now on the show. Even if #Gonzmilla doesn't become a major storyline, this feels like confirmation that new showrunner Kristin Newman wants The Muppets to have more heart, more brains, and more in common with Muppets of old than it did before. On the other hand, we're still stuck with the mockumentary format, which should probably be straight-up banned.Besides asserting the show's credibility within the Muppets' franchise, "A Tail of Two Piggies" also manages to stick together as an episode. The characters with conflicting motivations feel true to their identifies, the jokes are actually funny, and the guest stars are deployed exactly as often as needed. The episode also does a great job »

New Girl Recap: Do You Believe in Magic?

7 hours ago

We've now had a few weeks of a new New Girl: No Jess, lots of wacky guest stars, high-energy goofs, and erasable self-contained plots. And it's worked pretty well! Fresh blood gets to bounce off known personalities, minor characters get room to breathe and build relationships — which is great news for Winston — and it makes a nice showcase for people like Fred Armisen and Lennon Parham. "Reagan" takes that formula and stretches it a little, leading to mixed results. The leading premise is that we get to meet Reagan Lucas, a.k.a. the long-foretold Megan Fox. So far, her character manages to be both better than I expected, and somehow still slightly underwhelming. Let's take that apart!We open with Nick and Cece behind the bar, where they're both getting hit on. Cece responds politely but dismissively, but that's still enough to set off Schmidt, who has some real trust issues. »

Kanye West Says Bill Cosby Is Innocent

9 hours ago

Taking a break from preparing to perform on Saturday Night Live this weekend and telling you how great Swish is going to be — whether or not it actually ends up being called Swish, or Waves, or whatever your best guess is — Kanye West weighed in on the many abuse charges currently being leveled against Bill Cosby. "Bill Cosby Innocent !!!!!!!!!!" Kanye tweeted early Tuesday evening. Assuming he didn't accidentally type exclamation points instead of question marks, it appears he thinks Cosby is innocent. (Though it seems like a weird thing to exclaim either way.) Below you can see a screenshot of the tweet, just in case Kanye ends up deleting it.Thirty minutes later, Kanye followed that tweet with one about sneakers. »

New York City’s Only Country-Music Festival Has Been Canceled

9 hours ago

As New York City's summer festival season continues to get more crowded, we have our first victim: FarmBorough, the first-ever country-music festival held in NYC, has been canceled after just one year. The festival's organizers, Founders Entertainment (who also run Governors Ball), have shared the news in a statement on the festival's practically dead site: "All of us at FarmBorough Festival appreciate the support we have received, but conditions dictate that we redirect our energy at this time." Strangely, the festival's second year looked to be a done deal as recently as three weeks ago, when the festival announced that Toby Keith, Jason Aldean, and Tim McGraw were set to headline with tickets already on sale. FarmBorough now says those tickets will be refunded. Last year's festival took place on Randalls Island, home to Governors Ball in June and where Coachella's controversial new Panorama festival will make its debut this »

Frozen Is Coming to Broadway in 2018, Giving You Just Enough Time to Conceive a Child Who Will Beg You to Take Them to Frozen on Broadway

10 hours ago

Do you have a kid yet? If not, better get to work on that — Disney announced Tuesday that the Frozen musical will make its way to Broadway in 2018, with a preview run in another city slated for next summer. The musical will feature music and lyrics from the Oscar-winning duo of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, with a book by Frozen co-director Jennifer Lee and choreography by Peter Darling (Billy Elliot). Rocky's Alex Timbers will serve as director. The theater is unknown, but, regardless, you and your future children are going to spend a lot of time waiting outside of it. Let's hope the cold doesn't bother them anyway. »

New High-Rise Trailer: Tom Hiddleston Has Lost His Clothes

10 hours ago

Tom Hiddleston has another sexy-creepy movie coming out this year with High-Rise, an adaptation of J. G. Ballard's 1975 sci-fi novel by director Ben Wheatley. Yes, we know that it's a story about an ultramodern high-rise that eventually abandons all social order, starring Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, and James Purefoy. But there are orgies involving Tom Hiddleston, and who is strong enough to say no to that? "Not I," said the Vulture. Watch the latest trailer above, which basically gives the people what they want: naked Tom Hiddleston. What a sight to behold. The other teasers and trailers are below: »
