This interview from way back in 2009 with Paul Rudd and Jason Segel is Over The Top. It's Over The Top and Top Gun, Young Guns, and Mighty Joe Young as well. This is just one example of the seven minutes of babble the poor interviewer is subjected to while Rudd and Segel press onward high or just being themselves! Were they on drugs? You be the judge. It's a hilarious interview that you have to watch all the way through! When you're done, watch the next video of them doing fart impressions during another interview.

A ripped, waxed bisexual Santa with an appetite for hot, buttered rum and grand larceny. A Supremes tribute featuring a sequined and pregnant transgendered student birthing out the Messiah — to the beat of “Love Child.” A living nativity kicked off with the announcement, “Virgin in the house, bitches!”
Nope, Glee‘s “Previously Unaired Christmas” wasn’t exactly traditional — and in some corners might be labeled blasphemous — but would you forgive me if I admitted to a couple of genuine belly laughs during the whole crazy, probably misguided hour?

Fifty years of Doctor Who have proven one thing- this is an actor’s show. All the special effects and skimpily dressed companions just wouldn’t work if there wasn’t a good leading man, and luckily, this series has had eleven (soon to be twelve- or is it thirteen?). But as much as this is a time for celebrating Messrs Hartnell to Smith, let’s also spare a thought for the hundreds of guest stars who have crossed paths with the Time Lord.
It can’t be easy, finding yourself in the midst of alien worlds or alternative realities that mean everything to the baying hordes of fans but nothing to you, a mere jobbing actor. In spite of that, many have risen to the challenge magnificently. Others looked as though they’re reading from cue cards. Some were just downright bad. And then there were a few, a precious few, »

AMC has ordered up 10 episodes of the docu-series, which was created by the same producers that brought to TV the wildly popular show Deadliest Catch.
King Of Arms will follow competitors from five different arm-wrestling clubs across America as they travel the country, sacrificing the comforts of a stationary life for this high-stakes, high-octane sub-culture.
King Of Arms is set to air in 2014. Will you watch? In the meantime, check out the trailer for Over the Top, below: »
After years of original series depicting the struggles of men, as they grapple with the innate need for self-preservation against overwhelming odds, AMC has finally cut out all that existential, intellectual claptrap and just picked up a show about arm wrestling. Titled King Of Arms, the reality series takes place in the “raw and highly competitive world of American arm wrestling” that exists outside of sports bars and Sylvester Stallone’s Over The Top, apparently, with Deadliest Catch producers Matt Renner and Ethan Prochnik telling another story of men testing their physical limits, minus fish. It follows the members of »
Over the last hundred or so years, movies have been the world's number-one chosen form of popular entertainment. Our common language. Our shared culture experience. And so on, and so forth.
So it should come as no surprise that movies not only shape how we view the world but how the world actually operates. Like, in real life. Here are nine instances when the impact of a movie went beyond the screen and into our reality.
1. 'Casablanca' (1942) Helps Shape American Foreign Policy
Most people remember "Casablanca" as an expertly crafted romance driven by the standout performances of Ingrid Bergman, looking stunning, and Humphrey Bogart, doing his best impression of a jaded emo teenager. But beyond shared looks between the movie's beautiful A-list leads and the story's exotic backdrop, the romance that had captivated America was, in part, subtle war propaganda. The film's backdrop was, of course, right in »

A film director is someone who has to tap dance on a carefully constructed stage centered on their own creativity, audience expectations and commercial concerns. It’s a carefully choreographed ritual as strange and nuanced as a peacock mating dance. A director who skillfully shows his feathers can ride a wave of adulation that causes him to lose control of the mesmerizing performance. He can careen out of control like a creative Hindenburg flaming quickly to the ground. Everyone is at horrified and drawn to movies that are little else than creative tragedies. Films that are at the very least products of an introverted ego maniacs that some film makers have become.
Compiled below are some of the greatest examples of directors who tuned out the world and decided what was happening in depths of their Psyche had to put to film with presumably only themselves considered as an audience. »

Review Aaron Birch 5 Aug 2013 - 09:00
Rise of the Triad, the classic Apogee twitch shooter has been revived, and it's back for more guns, gore and glory...
When the lowly pistol, the mainstay and usually weakest weapon in most Fps releases is capable of splitting a man in half, showering the area with blood, you know you're in for something messy, and that's just what you get when you fire up Rise of the Triad.
This revival of the 1995 shooter is all about action, guts and mindless blasting, and by its very design, it's not to be taken seriously. It laughs in the face of modern gaming conventions, ditching recharging health, ammo conservation and hefty dialogue, instead giving you a Nazi-style army to kill, bountiful supplies of guns, rockets and explosives, and a hero who can move faster than Usain Bolt on speed. This is pure, 90s throwback action, it »

Independence Day is one of my favorite movies. That’s not exactly a fact that I’m proud of but it’s the truth. Every time it’s on TV I watch it, I know all the lines, I have it on special edition DVD and still on the original VHS.
I was only eight when it was released and it was the first real summer blockbuster I had ever seen. At the time I was drawn in like most people to the insane action sequences and stunning images (there is a reason that White House explosion has become one of the most iconic in pop culture). As I’ve gotten older I started to notice the characters and the fact that Independence Day is just one of the most unapologetically over the top, thrilling and enjoyable movies ever made. »

We're a nostalgic bunch, aren't we? I'm speaking of movie geeks in general, but I suppose, more specifically, those of us who were around decades ago to worship action heroes like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone when they were in their prime. Predator. Rambo. The Terminator. Cliffhanger. Total Racall. Rocky - not action, ok, but still tough-guy Stallone so it counts - and much more recently, The Expendables. And because, why not? Over the Top and Kindergarten Cop. With those films in mind, Escape Plan has its own nostalgic draw, taking two iconic action stars and setting them up in a Prison Break-like scenario. Above is the new poster for the film, which shows stars Schwarzenegger and Stallone in separate cells, their backs to one another while they're locked up in "the most secure prison ever built," where "no one breaks out alone."

Ever since the invention the motion picture, filmmakers have strived to simulate sexual congress, in all of its glory, with varying degrees of success. Hampered by puritanical paradigms of what is immoral to show general audiences, most directors opt to present coitus in the most pedestrian manner possible: from the waist up, with nipples and other naughty bits artfully concealed by bedsheets or well-placed shadows. But there are visionaries, like Lars Von Trier in his upcoming movie Nymphomaniac (a film that promises to depict hardcore sex scenes), who aim to breakdown the barriers established by prudes and show audiences the real deal.
Sometimes, these mavericks overcompensate and go full tilt at the expense of credibility. When this happens, be it intentionally for comedic effect or be it accidentally, audiences are treated to gloriously over the top sex scenes that defy belief. I present to you a list of ten such »

Mumbai, May 10: Over the top pre-release publicity has become the norm in filmdom, but contrary to this, the promotions of crime thriller "Aurangzeb" have been low-key so far. But director Atul Sabharwal says as the release date gets closer, the promotions will get intense.
"Aurangzeb", a film from Yash Raj Film's stable, is coming out May 17 but it has not created enough buzz despite featuring host of stars - from seasoned actors like Rishi Kapoor, Jackie Shroff and Amrita Singh to youngsters Prithviraj Sukumaran, Arjun Kapoor and Saasha Agah.
"We have no such intention to promote our film less. I feel the film is reaching up to the people whom it needs to reach. Moreover, the time has come when the promotions are done. »

This weekend, the summer movie season kicks off in spectacular fashion (remember when it used to be Memorial Day weekend?), with Disney and Marvel's "Iron Man 3." The third film in the series and the fourth featuring national treasure Robert Downey Jr. as genius billionaire playboy-philanthropist Tony Stark (after last summer's superhero free-for-all "The Avengers"), it raises the stakes considerably, to the point that, should Rdj never want to put on the robotic suit again, the story would be nicely and tidily resolved. But what do you really need to know about "Iron Man 3?" Read on to find out! Excelsior! 1. It's the Best 'Iron Man' Movie Yet While the first "Iron Man" was an adrenalized blast, "Iron Man 2" seemed somewhat phoned in -- a collection of contradictory plot threads that didn't add up to much (also: Mickey Rourke's parrot). Thankfully, we're back on more solid ground with "Iron Man 3, »

"I don't trust anybody, that's how you stay in the game."
At 66, Sylvester Stallone is reaching that age when most action movie stars contemplate retirement or transition into playing kindly grandfathers, grumpy old men, and butlers (no offense, Sir Michael), yet 'Sly' continues to make the kind of movies that made him famous when he was a young man. After surprising everyone but his hardcore fans with the success of his throwback action movies The Expendables 1 & 2, Stallone stumbled a bit with his solo movie Bullet to the Head, but he's got the support of great co-stars in his upcoming action movie The Tomb with Arnold Schwarzenegger and the boxing comedy Grudge Match with Robert De Niro, currently in production. The Expendables had a bigger opening weekend than any of Stallone's previous movies, but is it also his best movie? Does Barney Ross deserve a spot alongside John Rambo and Rocky Balboa? »
