Drunk Driver Crashes Into the Fixer Upper ''Three Little Pigs'' House

Drunk Driver Crashes Into the Fixer Upper ''Three Little Pigs'' House
One Fixer Upper house is going to need to be fixed up...again. For all you  fans of the Hgtv series, you may remember the "Three Little Pigs" house in Waco, Texas, from season three of the show (episode 10). It turned out beautiful with brick and dark wood accents and an adorable porch, fitting for the quaint neighborhood. Unfortunately, it no longer looks like it once did. According to the Waco Tribune-Herald, a man suspected of drunk driving crashed into the house late Saturday night, destroying part of the porch and the front room. Owners Ken and Kelly Downs were sleeping in an interior room and were uninjured. However, Kelly told the publication it could have been much worse if it wasn't...

6 Filmmaking Tips from Walt Disney

Get behind these lessons from the man behind the mouse.

What would Walt Disney have thought of the new live-action Beauty and the Beast? What would he have thought of the 1991 animated version? While there are so many questions we’d love to have answered about the man’s take on the modern world, it’s best to look at what we can still learn from such an iconic figure 50 years after his death.

Disney remains an inspiration for students of business in particular, but a lot of his words of wisdom originated with and still speak to the art of filmmaking and creators in general. We highlight six such tips for writers, directors, animators, and more below.

Set Your Goals Early

Disney was still just a child when he figured out what he was good at and what he wanted to do with his life. At 14, he was already in art school. At

Twisted Shrek Theory Will Forever Change How You Look at Donkey

Twisted Shrek Theory Will Forever Change How You Look at Donkey
There is a certain kind of nostalgia bubbling up for Shrek that often happens with big franchises that hit hard, clean up at the box office, and then turn in a handful of waning sequels. Shrek disappeared for a while, but fans are regaining their Shrek appetite. DreamWorks knows this, and Shrek 5 is currently being planned, though it has never been divulged whether or not it will be a straight sequel or a reboot. Perhaps the studio hasn't discovered this for themselves yet. But one fan has a pretty terrifying theory that makes a lot of sense. While you may forever look at Donkey with a different set of eyes after you hear it, perhaps it could be a good why to go?

We've never gotten to know a lot about Eddie Murphy's Donkey. Especially when it comes to his back story. While the rest of the characters in Shrek,

This Express piece quotes an Empire Magazine interview with Martin Scorsese’s long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker in which she relates how the original plan was to have Frank Sinatra’s original recording of My Way play over the end credits of modern gangster classic Goodfellas instead of the Sid Vicious cover that was eventually used.

Sinatra would never let Marty use his music,” explains Schoonmaker, “which is too bad because Marty may

Screenwriter of David Fincher's The Social Network, Bennett Miller's Moneyball and Mike Nichols' Charlie Wilson's War, Aaron Sorkin, clued me in on his adaptation of Walter Isaacson's biography, Steve Jobs, before sitting down for brunch at The Vault of the St. Regis.

Toronto Film Review: ‘Mr. Right’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Mr. Right’
For most, “reformed hit man” suggests someone who used to kill people but doesn’t anymore. In the case of “Mr. Right,” however, the label has an altogether different meaning: Instead of bumping off the targets he’s hired to eliminate, Sam Rockwell’s born-again executioner kills the folks who contracted him instead. Not an especially sustainable work model, professionally speaking (it’s murder on word-of-mouth, for starters), but then, this fixer is ready to make some changes in his own life, maybe even find romance with an on-the-rebound Anna Kendrick — which is where Max Landis’ ultra-cutesy script picks up, asking whether a character like that can find and sustain love … or else die trying. For about a decade after “Pulp Fiction,” such quirky hit-man comedies were all the rage, though in the post-“Gigli” era, (the eerily similar) “Mr. Right” just feels wrong.

'Frank Underwolf' Huffs and Puffs in 'Sesame Street' 'House of Cards' Parody

'Frank Underwolf' Huffs and Puffs in 'Sesame Street' 'House of Cards' Parody
Frank Underwood's ruthless quest for political supremacy on House of Cards was crossed with the timeless saga of the the "Three Little Pigs" in a delightful, and educational, Sesame Street parody sketch called "House of Bricks."

The bit perfectly pokes fun at the high stakes melodrama of House of Cards, with Frank Underwolf divulging to the camera his nefarious plan to blow down the pigs' houses and overtake the strongest of them all: the White Brick House. Underwolf also rattles off plenty of silly "Three Little Pigs"-inspired jokes delivered like classic Underwood-isms like,

This 'Sesame Street' 'House of Cards' Parody Is Perfect (Video)

  • Moviefone
"Sesame Street" has come up with yet another perfect pop culture parody with "House of Bricks," a clever take on Netflix series "House of Cards."

The segment stars Frank Underwolf, doing his best Kevin Spacey impression, in a spin on the classic tale "The Three Little Pigs." Underwolf wants to blow down houses made of straw and sticks so he can get into the one he really wants: "The White Brick House."

Underwolf's southern drawl and penchant for delivering monologues into the camera -- which confuses the Three Little Pigs -- are a spot-on parody of the Netflix series, as is the twist ending, in which nothing is as it seems. Check out the clever clip below.

Season three of "House of Cards" debuts on Netflix on February 27.

On Monday, the parody geniuses at Sesame Street combined a childhood favorite with the dirty dealings of Kevin Spacey's powerhouse politico Frank Underwood. In a House of Cards/Three Little Pigs mashup, Frank Underwolf has his sights set on the White Brick House. Underwolf has the same Southern drawl and tendency of speaking into the camera as Spacey as he says, "Well, hello, there, little pig! My, what a fine house you have built out of straw.

Celebrity Big Brother housemates pass Freak Show task

The Celebrity Big Brother housemates have won the latest task, after they were forced to answer tough questions about each other.

In scenes airing on tonight's (February 1) show, the first part of the Freak Show task sees Calum Best, Perez Hilton and Cami Li as the Three Little Pigs, eating three questionable dishes including jellied eels.

Katie Price and Katie Hopkins then perform as the 'two-headed Katie monster' which only has one mind.

They must answer questions taken from an anonymous survey of the housemates done earlier in the day, including 'Who is the most popular in the house?' and 'Which two housemates think they are going to win Big Brother?'

The third part of the task sees Kavana perform as 'The Singing Dummy', in which he must sing tweets about himself selected by Big Brother. The majority of these tweets are far from complimentary, with Kavana having

Disney's Snow White: the risk that changed filmmaking forever

  • Den of Geek
Snow White was a risk that could have finished Disney. Ryan looks at how the world's first animated feature changed the landscape of cinema

In 2013, Walt Disney Animation Studios released Frozen, its 53rd animated feature. With takings of well over $1bn and counting, it ranks as the most successful animated film of all time, eclipsing the previous title holder - Pixar's Toy Story 3 - by around $200m.

For a generation who've grown up with such films as The Lion King and Tangled, Disney probably seems like an immovable cultural force: as recognisable and unchanging as Mount Rushmore or the American flag. But Disney has survived a series of peaks and troughs since its founding in the 1920s, from its decline in the 1970s and early 80s, its revival in the 90s, and its second burst of creative energy in the 2000s.

From its inception, Disney Animation Studios has moved with the times,
