Watch Kobe Bryant Drop All 60 Points in Amazing Farewell Game (Video)
Given the town and fans he’s set on fire for 20 years, Kobe Bryant’s farewell game Wednesday followed a fitting Hollywood script. The Black Mamba dropped a massive 60 points on the Utah Jazz last night, and the crowd loved every single bucket. It was a huge game for the aging, achy superstar, though he did launch 50 attempts to fill the stats sheet — that’s a ton of shots. Still, 60 was the most Bryant’s poured in since early 2009. And to make things better, the struggling Los Angeles Lakers actually won, with Kobe scoring 15 of his team’s final 17...

Kobe Bryant Breaks Silence About Lamar Odom's Hospitalization, Slams Public Criticism
Kobe Bryant doesn't have the energy to deal with negativity and criticism at a time like this. The Los Angeles Lakers star broke his silence today concerning the tragic event revolving around his friend and former teammate Lamar Odom by writing a powerful message about the critics questioning the sincerity of his support for Lo at this time. "When we feel the need to question the support of others in moments as critical as a life hanging in the balance, then we must question the kind of culture we have created that has led us to such insensitive suspicion," Bryant posted on Twitter, with the hashtag "#JustPray." The Black Mamba didn't call anyone out by name, but the timing of his...

“Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned”: Top 10 Damaged Divas in the Movies

Sure, we have all seen our share of an “Unstable Mabel” in cinema throughout the years. Some, more than others, do stand out in craziness, chaos and curiosity. These furious females in film–at least the ones that we will spotlight in this particular movie column–have something to their off-kilter filter that dares to dig deep on so many psychological levels of frivolity and fury.

In Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned: Top 10 Damaged Divas in the Movies we will examine some of the warped women on the big screen that have a sense of demented diva-like dimensions to their cockeyed characterizations. These mistresses of misbehaving all demonstrate various kinds of detachment and dysfunction that capture our puzzling imaginations. Are there perhaps even stronger and more memorable bombastic she-beasts that have a certain score to settle against their detractors or society as a whole? Of course. However, the

'Anchorman 2' Director Talks [Spoiler] Cameo

Read at your own risk! There be spoilers ahead, matey. "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" cameo spoilers, to be specific.

This particular cameo has been out there already, but, what's new here is that director/co-writer Adam McKay has unleashed a bunch of details.

You've been warned.

Remember those photos of Kanye West that surfaced from the "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" set? Well, McKay recently had plenty to say about the participation of the rapper-turned-actor who is of course baby daddy to Kim Kardashian, bully to Taylor Swift, performance artist on "SNL" and the man The President of the United States twice referred to as a "jackass."

There was no jackassery on display on the Atlanta set of the hotly anticipated Will Ferrell comedy sequel, however.

We already know that West will be choking Steve Carrell with a hockey stick during a big brawl. Now we know what a nice and happy guy he can be.

Tsr Exclusive: ‘Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest’ interview with director Michael Rapaport and Phife Dawg

Trailblazing the way for more rap documentaries just as A Tribe Called Quest did for its genre’s musical potential, Beats Rhymes & Life is a passion project by first-time director Michael Rapaport that goes deep into how important the quartet was during the ’90s. As heard in both underground and mainstream rap acts today, the influence of the group (who included members Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Jarobi White) is still prominent.

I sat down with first-time director Rapaport and Atcq member Phife Dawg to discuss the group’s influence on modern culture, the small existence of rap documentaries, the excitement of rap music in the ’80s, and more.

Beats Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest opens in Chicago on July 15.

There’s a lot of talk in this documentary about respect and influence. Is that an important component to musical history? Are financial numbers equal,

Kobe Bryant is on the Ball for Robert Rodriquez’s Nike Viral Ad

  • HeyUGuys
Nike has been really upping their game in the promo/viral field of late. You may recall that the company recently managed to acquire the talents of cinematic big-hitters Alejandro González Iñárritu and Terry Gilliam to deliver incredible-looking, inventive, big-budget adverts.

Now Texas-based Diy action auteur Robert Rodriquez has produced a five minute viral where he plays himself, pitching a film idea to Us basketball superstar Kobe Bryant where the sportsman will appear as an alter-ego named The Black Mamba.

The film comes to life through the meeting and three big names (Danny Trejo as The Crippler, Bruce Willis as Mister Suave and Kanye West as The Boss) all appear as potential casing ideas as the story progresses.

It’s a fun, flashy viral, very much in the vein of Rodriquez’s recent work (particularly with the Grindhouse-esque introductory character title cards) and it ends with a ball game
