Orlando Shelter Sorts Hard to Adopt Dogs into Harry Potter  Houses at 'Pawgwarts'
An Orlando pet shelter is betting on a bit of magic to help boost adoption rates for its toughest customers – i.e. bully breeds, including pit bulls. Much like students who don the sorting hat and await assignment into the proper Hogwarts house in the enduringly popular Harry Potter franchise (which turned 20 this year), Pet Alliance of Orlando is sorting dogs into four sections of its “Pawgwarts” kennels, based upon their personalities, abilities and interests rather than their breeds. It’s working like a charm.

“It’s a fun, lighthearted way to get people to start looking at ending breed discrimination,

Donald Trump Lawyer Threatens Internet Stranger: ‘Watch Your Back, B—-‘
President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz, is facing blowback after he threatened an anonymous critic who asked him to resign in a series of profane Wednesday night emails.

Flashback: A Random 78 Minutes of MTV From June 1982

A little under a year ago we got tremendously excited when we learned that VH1 Classic was going to be reborn as MTV Classic. Visions of Remote Control marathons filled our heads along with the chance to finally see if lost classics like The State, The Ben Stiller Show, The Tom Green Show and The Andy Milonakis Show lived up to our memories. The MTV vault was overflowing with half-forgotten gems and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to see them again.

The first sign of trouble came when they

The Best Netflix Foreign Language Shows Worth Bingeing, Part 2
Netflix continues to have such a vast array of acquired TV series from around the world that it’s difficult to know what to give a chance.

Sci-Fi London 2017: The End Of The Lonely Island Review

Fifteen minutes into The End of the Lonely Island, I nearly gave up on the movie. I simply couldn't follow what was happening. A man and a woman are walking on a deserted island. He's telling her about his time spent there as a child and partway through his story, the movie flashes forward to the same woman on the same island but apparently years later. She's talking to someone in an earpiece and trying to find something on the island as quickly as possible but there's no indication of what she's looking for but more importantly, why she's in such a hurry to find it.

The two stories don't seem connected and what's more, there's no indication of why they're important. We know nothing about any of the characters and yet... there's something compelling about the story. In truth, t [Continued ...]

12 Fascinating Things You Probably Didn't Know About Titanic

It's been two decades since Jack and Rose's ill-fated romance broke our hearts and turned "never let go" into the most romantic vow one could make. At the time of filming, Titanic was the most expensive movie ever made, and no one could have predicted the monstrous success headed its way. The blockbuster went on to become the highest grossing film of all time (before being dethroned by James Cameron's 2009 film Avatar), and has entered the pop cultural zeitgeist as one of the essential films to see before you die. But even after dissecting the film, its stars, and the real-life events that inspired it, there are still some things about the movie that remain endlessly fascinating. Here are 12 interesting facts about Titanic! 1. There Was Almost a Different Jack and Rose It's impossible to imagine the film without Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, but rumor has it they were

Diary Of A Web Series: That Time The Director’s Car Got Impounded

We had done our “due diligence,” as they say in the corporate world. We put out a casting call, reviewed hundreds of Backstage profiles, scheduled 20 auditions, printed sign-in sheets, enlisted help for the auditions, and set up a camera. We had a plan.

Well, Alison, the director, had a plan. She’s one of the most meticulous people I have ever met, a meticulousness that compensated for our lack of experience. Neither of us had created a web series before, and neither of us had held auditions before.

The morning of our first audition, we were ready. We checked our schedule and reviewed the profile of the first auditioner. Five minutes late. That’s Ok. We worked some cushion into our schedule. Ten minutes late. Fifteen minutes late. Totally fine. Our first no-show. That’s part of the process.

We moved on to the profile of our second auditioner. Five minutes late.

Three All-New Images For Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Spotlight Star-Lord And The Gang

See Full Gallery Here

Taking over the baton from Logan and Patty Jenkins’ standalone Wonder Woman movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been elected the current cover star of Empire Magazine, and the outlet has today peeled back the curtain on not one, not two, but three all-new images for James Gunn’s spacefaring sequel.

Featuring Star-Lord and the rest of the gang, not to mention new looks at Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Ego, the Living Planet (Kurt Russell) in his humanoid form, the high-res pics are enough to stoke excitement for Guardians 2 without necessarily divulging any spoiler-sensitive material – and we wouldn’t have it any other way. One thing that will no doubt fuel conversation online is the inclusion of Karen Gillan’s Nebula, who can be seen rubbing shoulders with the Guardians and, perhaps most interesting of all, her estranged sister Gamora (Zoe Saldana) up above.

I Was There: Inside the Day Donald Trump Announced His Presidential Bid — and His Plan to Build That Wall

I Was There: Inside the Day Donald Trump Announced His Presidential Bid — and His Plan to Build That Wall
It all started with an escalator ride — and escalated from there.

On June 16, 2015, Donald Trump descended a golden escalator to announce his presidential bid at his own Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York City.

The strains of “Rockin’ in the Free World” by Neil Young filled the air as the business mogul made his grand escalator entrance before taking the stage after an introduction by his daughter Ivanka Trump.

It was Day 1 of an unorthodox presidential bid that would go on to upend the Gop and roil the nation.

And there I was at the bottom of the escalator.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Episode Review: “Where Is Josh’s Friend”

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend gang (the season finale aired in April and it’s one of the last fall premieres). Lucky for us we pick up almost exactly where we left off. Fifteen minutes later to be exact. After finally hooking up in a convertible, Rebecca confessed she moved to West Covina for Josh. Now, they’re back in the car looking extremely uncomfortable. I won’t recap the conversation verbatim but it boils down to Josh questioning Rebecca about her confession only to have her confuse him into thinking he’s the one acting crazy. The wordsmithing is actually

‘We never visit? You saw us three days ago!’ Romesh Ranganathan and his mum

The comedian’s mother stole every scene in the first series of Asian Provocateur. Now the pair are back and squabbling about Sri Lankan family politics – and who is most eager to be recognised in the sandwich shop

As Romesh Ranganathan shows me into his mother’s home, I make small talk by asking him if he lives nearby. “Just 10 minutes,” he replies. His mother, Shanthi, whips around. “Fifteen minutes,” she says, accusingly. “Fifteen minutes ... by car.”

We are in Crawley, West Sussex, to discuss the new series of his BBC3 show, Asian Provocateur. Yet somehow, sitting on Shanthi’s burgundy leather sofa, surrounded by small, white statues of Hindu deities, we keep coming back to how her son never visits her.

‘Grease Live’: Lin-Manuel Miranda Helps Creative Team Revisit ‘Magic’ of Fox’s Musical
Show the magic — that was a guiding principle for the “Grease Live” team as they tackled the challenge of mounting Fox’s live staging of the beloved musical.

The end result of the Jan. 31 telecast was more than 14 million viewers, rave reviews for the ambitious effort exec produced by Marc Platt for Paramount Television. Last month, “Grease Live” landed 10 Emmy nominations.

On Monday night, “Grease Live” directors Thomas Kail and Alex Rudzinski and other key members of the creative team reunited at New York’s Edison Ballroom for an Fyc panel session. The gabfest was moderated by none other than “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who worked with Kail on that Tony Award-winning musical playing “a block away,” as Miranda noted.

Kail emphasized that the goal was to demonstrate the enormity of the production at key moments in the three-hour telecast, which included a live audience in many scenes. The approach was rooted “in a very simple premise

'Raiders!': How Two Kids Made the Greatest Fan Film Ever
While other 11-year-olds in Biloxi, Mississippi might have spent their 1980s summer vacations playing endless hours of Space Invaders at the local arcade or tricking dimwits into painting picket fences, Chris Strompolos and Eric Zala, the subjects of the new documentary Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made (opening June 17th), were busy lighting each other on fire.

The two boys first saw Raiders of the Lost Ark in the summer of 1981, and like any right-minded latchkey kids in search of adventure (and father figures), they instantly fell in love.
