Breaking Bad Meets Frozen in the Hilarious “Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?”

18 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It seems like Frozen has been everywhere over the past couple of years, after it initially made its theatrical during that one fateful winter that would make it the highest grossing animated film of all time.  The film even invaded TV screens with its own special on ABC before the characters of Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, and even Sven the reindeer made their way on to Once Upon a Time. However, I don’t think anyone could have predicted that Frozen would ever combine with Breaking Bad, but it happened when this hilarious video, entitled “Do You Want to Build a Meth Lab?” (a parody version of Frozen‘s

Here’s The Trailer For ‘Who’s Driving Doug,’ Co-Starring Ray William Johnson

5 February 2016 1:55 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

In May 2014, two months after he hosted his =3 web series for the final time, YouTube star Ray William Johnson was revealed as one of the leads in Who’s Driving Doug, an indie film starring former Breaking Bad cast member Rj Mitte. Now, three weeks ahead of the film’s premiere, viewers have received a first look at it thanks to a new trailer.

In Who’s Driving Doug, Mitte plays a handicapped student named Doug who enlists Johnson’s character, Scott, as his personal driver. Together with the third lead character, portrayed by Paloma Kwiatkowski, Doug and Scott embark on a trip to Las Vegas. The film's writer, Michael Carnick, is handicapped himself, and the trailer tells us the story is "inspired by true events." The trailer also dispalys plenty of familiar road movie tropes and a melancholy indie rock soundtrack that includes songs by the band Death Cab For Cutie. »

20 Hottest People On TV Right Now

5 February 2016 11:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

CBS

Over the past few years, television has started to outshine movies when it comes to quality storytelling, and that’s thanks to the likes of Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones (to name just two of the most recent examples). While there are still plenty of awful shows out there – many of which are loved and draw big ratings – it really does feel as if we’re in the golden age of TV which people have been talking about for so long.

Even superheroes are being done justice on the small screen, and with those and pretty much every other genre you can think of comes a wealth of new and familiar talent.

Whoever you’re a fan of and whatever kind of shows you may gravitate towards, it’s fair to say that we’re all guilty of sitting back, turning on the TV – whether it’s for »

Chase Holfelder Covers 'Without You' for Suicide Prevention Charity

Though they wrote immortal songs like "Without You" and "Come and Get It," Badfinger's strongest legacy may be as a cautionary tale. The band, who were feted by the Beatles early on, had a promising early career, but after several hits in the early '70s, their career was derailed in the middle of that decade by several business blunders by their manager, Stan Polley. In 1975, founding member Pete Ham, despondent over the state of their career, hanged himself. Guitarist and songwriter Tom Evans never got over his friend's death, and in 1983, also hanged himself.

‘Every country has its fearmongers’ – Bryan Cranston on Trumbo and Hollywood’s blacklist

4 February 2016 9:28 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Breaking Bad star is getting political, playing a communist screenwriter in Trumbo, and Lyndon B Johnson in an upcoming HBO film. What does he think the McCarthy era can tell us about the rise of Trump and Cruz?

‘Yes, I’m often naked,” says Bryan Cranston. In this case, he’s speaking of a particularly vulnerable moment in his new movie, Trumbo. The film tells the story of the screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, perhaps the best known of the Hollywood 10, who in 1947 were jailed and blacklisted for alleged communist sympathies. When Trumbo reports to jail, he submits to a humiliating strip-search – it’s the moment when the power of the state is brought metaphorically to bear upon one helpless man.

Film Review: Trumbo

4 February 2016 1:02 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Director Jay Roach turns his attention to legendary screenwriter Dalton Trumbo in the aptly named Trumbo, based on the biography by Bruce Alexander Cook. A noted communist who tirelessly fought for the rights of blacklisted writers in Golden Era Hollywood, Trumbo is a fascinating figure who is so ingrained in the fabric of tinsel town's century-old history, though exactly why his work was so highly regarded - and successful - is lost in the mire of this glossy, ham-fisted biopic that settles for surface-level summations. Seamlessly seguing from one colossal character - Breaking Bad's meth kingpin Walter White - to another, Bryan Cranston gives a typically studied, full-bodied and quite remarkable performance as the titular Trumbo, a man who wears his political beliefs on his sleeve and whose services are called upon to rescue flailing productions - as well as write award-winning scripts of his own.

‘Better Call Saul’s’ Bob Odenkirk, Showrunners Talk Jimmy McGill’s Transition to Saul Goodman at Season 2 Premiere

3 February 2016 12:43 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At the Season 2 premiere of “Better Call Saul” at the Arclight Cinema in Culver City on Tuesday night, Bob Odenkirk weighed in on his character’s transition from Jimmy McGill to Saul Goodman.

“I think it’s a big drop off,” Odenkirk said. “It’s a slow journey, and then all of a sudden, he finds himself as Saul, I think that’s how it is going to go. My gut tells me he fights like hell to not be Saul, and then he just gives up for some reason that’s probably pretty potent and painful.”

The executive producers and showrunners of “Better Call Saul,” Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, said the timeline for when Jimmy would become Saul has been in constant flux.

“In the early going, we thought he would become Saul Goodman by the end of the season, or maybe by the middle of Season 1,” Gilligan said. »

Discover Breaking Bad References in Better Call Saul You Probably Didn’t Know

2 February 2016 8:13 PM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

With a second season of AMC's Better Call Saul arriving in just under two weeks time, AMC is stepping up their promotional efforts by thinking a little outside the box. This latest treat is one Breaking Bad universe fans won't want to miss.

There are numerous Breaking Bad references in Better Call Saul strewn throughout the first season. Who can forget when Tuco popped up in the Better Call Saul pilot or when Jimmy McGill faked his name with, "Saul Good, man."

While the obvious nods to Breaking Bad are easy to spot, creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould took great care into sprinkling in the most subtle references that only die hard fans might spot. I've watched every episode of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul and didn't pick up on several of the 17 Breaking Bad references in Better Call Saul shared in the promo video below.

Spielberg's Best Pictures and New DVDs

2 February 2016 12:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Time to check in to see which movies we all can check back in with or catch up with now that they've hit the home market. The big title, Oscar wise is Steven Spielberg's 10th Best Picture nominee as a director, the cold war drama Bridge of Spies with Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance both doing fine work as a lawyer and the spy he must bargain with for a prisoner of war trade. Only one of Spielberg's directorial efforts has ever won Best Picture (Schindler's List, 1993) but which is your favorite? I'd rank them like so...

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) Schindler's List (1993) Jaws (1975) E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (1982) Lincoln (2012) The Color Purple (1985) Bridge of Spies (2015) Saving Private Ryan (1998) Munich (2005) War Horse (2011)

With the disclaimer that everyone knows I'm not a Spielberg aficionado really (the top three are the only ones I'm completely wild about from this list »

Better Call Saul Season 2: Everything We Know So Far

2 February 2016 12:03 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

AMC

Did we really need a Breaking Bad spin-off? It was one of the greatest TV shows of all time, anchored by an incredible performance by Bryan Cranston. A spin-off wouldn’t have him, for a start, and also it’d have to contend with that legacy, and find a new story to tell in a universe dominated by Heisenberg.

They were valid concerns when Better Call Saul was announced, but once the show began to air they quickly went out of the window. Better Call Saul had a similar visual style to its predecessor, not surprising given it was again created by Vince Gilligan, but it still managed to break free from Breaking Bad’s shadow.

There was still plenty of drama, and the odd run-in with drug lords, but there was real emotional heft that came from pre-Saul Jimmy McGill’s relationship with his brother, and some truly »
