20 Most Frustrating Video Game Moments Ever

Nintendo

Why do we play video games? To engross ourselves in a unique story, maybe play with some buddies, let off some steam, and for the most part relax, right?

But sometimes video game developers have their own weird agendas: sometimes it appears that they have an unexplained desire to punish us, to test the mettle of our fiber through frustrating gameplay that, were each game not so otherwise awesome, we might’ve just abandoned entirely. Yes, these 20 games are almost all classics of their respective eras, but each has brought just as much anguish and annoyance as they have joy to gamers.

Whether we’re talking about a ridiculously unfair restriction to artificially inflate the difficulty, being trolled by online players, certain types of missions we absolutely can’t stand or crass practices from video game publishers, these 20 gaming moments have had us flying into an impotent rage more than any others.

An Oscar Winner Has His Day Supporting a Brilliant Woodward and a Heavily Made-Up Hoffman

Martin Balsam: Oscar winner has ‘Summer Under the Stars’ Day on Turner Classic Movies Best Supporting Actor Academy Award winner Martin Balsam (A Thousand Clowns) is Turner Classic Movies’ unusual (and welcome) "Summer Under the Stars" featured player today, August 27, 2013. Right now, TCM is showing Sidney Lumet’s The Anderson Tapes (1971), a box-office flop starring Sean Connery in his (just about) post-James Bond, pre-movie legend days. (Photo: Martin Balsam ca. early ’60s.) Next, is Joseph Sargent’s thriller The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974). Written by Peter Stone (Father Goose, Arabesque) from John Godey’s novel, the film revolves around the hijacking of a subway car in New York City. Passengers are held for ransom while police lieutenant Walter Matthau tries to handle the situation. Now considered a classic (just about every pre-1999 movie is considered a "classic" these days), The Taking of Pelham One Two Three was

Tna Impact Wrestling Review 15/02/12

Impact Wrestling – Feb 15th 2012

Bobby Roode retained successfully at Against All Odds so he rightfully was the main focus of the show this week. Although you have to question why he made Christy introduce him twice, he must be a glutton for punishment. He also rightfully pointed out that it’s Sting’s own fault he is still champion. The “Insane Icon” didn’t like this and so hit the ring and put him in a No Dq, No Time Limit match against Jeff Hardy in the first match. Is anyone still drug testing Jeff? Only someone on drugs could devise such terrible entrances and face paint every week. Either way, they had a decent opening match which even had a few spots around the stage and ramp. Hardy was all over Roode for the majority, and only lost when Kurt Angle made a return and threw Jeff into the steps.

Ring Of Honor Wrestling 22/10/11 Review – The Road To Final Battle Starts Here

This latest episode of Ring Of Honor Wrestling was recorded from Loiusville, Kentucky, and right off the bat we get treated to a little sample of how Roh’s new show is slowly adding to its presentation style. We see commentators Nigel McGuinnes and Kevin Kelly on screen broadcasting together for the first time. It’s a nice touch, giving Roh a little more legitimacy as a contender in the broadcast stakes, and also charmingly reminiscent of Joey Style’s old backstage area in Ecw. There’s even a chain link fence in the background. They tell us that the show’s main event will be Jay Lethal’s first defence of his Television Championship against Mike Bennet. I have to say, its really cool that there is a title match each week, it gives it a real big fight feel every week.

"Shutter Island" Secrets! See Films Scorsese Showed to Inspire Cast and Crew

Being a true film buff himself, Martin Scorsese inspired cast and crew with a series of nighttime screenings of films that called forth the themes and styles used in "Shutter Island."

Some of the films are classics, some are obscure, but they're definitely worth a look to see what movies inspired the greatest living American director while making "Shutter Island" starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Here's the list of films according to the movie's production notes:

Otto Preminger'S "Laura" -- How love can be the most dangerous thing to ever happened to a woman.

Jacques Tourneur'S "Out Of The Past" -- the film's tagline says "A Man - Trying to run away from his past... A Woman - Trying to escape her future!"

Edward Dmytryk'S "Crossfire" -- "Shutter Island's" paranoia theme involving DiCaprio's wartime hero mirrors this film's sentiments.

Nicholas Ray'S "On Dangerous Ground" -- this is

Exclusive Cinema Retro Interview: David Hedison Remembers Richard Basehart

  • CinemaRetro
In part two of Herb Shadrak's tribute to actor Richard Basehart, his Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea co-star David Hedison reflects on working with Basehart on the popular Irwin Allen TV series.

By Herb Shadrak

Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

Veteran actor David Hedison is best known for three roles: the ill-fated scientist Andre Delambre who switches heads with The Fly (1958), CIA agent Felix Leiter in two James Bond films – Live and Let Die (1973) and Licence to Kill (1989) [in which he loses his leg to a shark] – and Captain Lee Crane, who, along with Admiral Harriman Nelson (Richard Basehart), commanded the high-tech submarine Seaview on the hit TV series Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1964-1968), which the Boston Globe’s TV critic said was “like Star Trek with fish.” In this exclusive interview for Cinema Retro, Hedison recalls his admiration for Basehart and the highlights of working with him on the fondly remembered science-fiction action-adventure series.

Oscar winner Karl Malden dies at 97

Karl Malden, who vaulted to movie prominence by winning an Academy Award for best supporting actor in "A Streetcar Named Desire" but who is perhaps best known for his lead role on 1970s TV series "The Streets of San Francisco," died Wednesday of natural causes at home in Brentwood. He was 97.

With his craggy face and bulbous nose -- he liked to say he had "an open-hearth face" -- Malden didn't possess matinee-idol looks, but he projected a familiarity and a fire that made him identifiable as an average guy who could rise to the occasion. Audiences respected him for his down-to-earth, lunchpail style.

His collaborations with Marlon Brando and director Elia Kazan, both lifelong friends, resulted in his "Streetcar" Oscar for playing Brando's pal Mitch and a supporting actor nomination three years later for his portrayal of Father Barry, who counsels Brando's character to stand up to the dock racketeers in "On the Waterfront.

Richard Widmark, who won a best supporting actor Oscar nomination for his first movie role in the 1947 gangster film "Kiss of Death," has died. He was 93.

Widmark's wife, Susan Blanchard, said the actor died Monday at his home in Roxbury, Conn. She would not provide details of his illness and said funeral arrangements are private.

Widmark, who often played heavies, received his Oscar nomination for his portrayal of a laughing psychopathic murderer who pushed a crippled old woman down a flight of stairs. Usually associated with villainous roles, he played another heavy in the film noir "Road House" the following year. Yet he made his mark as the cynical hero of Samuel Fuller's "Pickup on South Street" in 1953. His gritty persona also suited him well for Westerns, playing
