The 1 Word That Goes Through Simone Biles's Head Before a Routine
Simone Biles admits the full gravity of her athletic achievements - four gold medals, one bronze - at the 2016 Rio Games doesn't seem quite real yet. "We've just been so busy," she told us over the phone from Rio on Friday. "I guess it's just not finished enough to let it sink in and talk about it. But it's been an amazing journey." The journey included making history, as The Final Five racked up nine medals in both group and individual events, breaking the record for the most medals won by any Us women's gymnastics team in Olympics history. (The journey also included a cameo from Biles's celebrity crush, Zac Efron.) We talked to Simone about her 2020 Olympics future, setting a positive example for little girls everywhere, and those Dancing With the Stars rumors.

Meet Flossie Dickey, an Unimpressed, Pie-and-Whiskey-Loving 110-Year-Old Who's Our New Hero

Meet Flossie Dickey, an Unimpressed, Pie-and-Whiskey-Loving 110-Year-Old Who's Our New Hero
Flossie Dickey seems like she's too good to be true, but she's very real. The 110-year-old was the main point of one of those local news segments where the extremely chipper anchor goes to a local nursing home and interviews their oldest resident, in this case, Cheney, Washington's Dickey. Flossie, who's lived too long to mince words, wasn't having it. A sample of her interview: "My grandkids, they say there's 50 of them. I don't know." And the pie-and-whiskey-loving centenarian apparently kept falling asleep before her interview, according to Khq's Nichole Mischke. "How do you think you'd feel if you were 110?" Flossie told her.

Film4 FrightFest 2015 Review – Turbo Kid (2015)

Turbo Kid, 2015

Written and directed by François Simard, Anouk Whissell, Yoann-Karl Whissell

Starring Munro Chambers, Laurence Leboeuf, Michael Ironside, Edwin Wright. Aaron Jeffery, Romano Orzri, Orphée Ladouceur

Synopsis:

In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, a comic book fan dons the persona of his favourite hero to save his enthusiastic friend and fight a tyrannical overlord.

To paraphrase the producer of the movie, Turbo Kid is a fake movie from the 1980s made in 2015 and set in a post-apocalyptic 1997. Simply put, this is your new favourite cult film. It takes all the best elements of Mad Mad, BMX Bandits and Braindead for an 80s style gorefest that packs a major punch, but also a lot of heart.

Turbo Kid started out live in a similar vein to Hobo With a Shotgun, and the two are pretty comparable. The movie was originally submitted as a short for The ABCs of Death as “T for

‘G.I. Joe’ Villain Cobra Commander Takes Over American City With Mayor’s Blessing

‘G.I. Joe’ Villain Cobra Commander Takes Over American City With Mayor’s Blessing
Where’s a Real American Hero when you need one? Cobra Commander just took over an entire American city. In a shocking turn of events, Springfield, Ill. mayor J. Michael Houston has given a key to the city to the dastardly “G.I. Joe” villain. Also Read: ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ – How Paramount’s Gamble Paid Off No, the mayor was not under the influence of some sort of mind control device. It was a publicity stunt for a “G.I.

5 Classic G.I. Joe Storylines That The New Films Should Use

The upcoming third entry in the G.I. Joe film series seems to be gaining some momentum. A new director, D.J. Caruso, is attached, and word has it that the series will essentially become an action vehicle now centering exclusively on Dwayne Johnson.s "Roadblock" character, who was passed the main hero torch in 2013.s G.I. Joe: Retaliation. While the apparent elimination of the collective ensemble spotlight might seem to imply that the series will now simply consist of scenes depicting The Rock laying the smackdown on computer-generated evil, it doesn.t necessarily mean that the team dynamic, or classic concepts from G.I. Joe.s 1980.s "A Real American Hero" brand ,won.t be present. In fact, the recent report that old favorites, Tomax and Xamot, the "Crimson Twins" might be showing up as the baddies this time around would prove that the franchise that taught us ...

G.I. Joe 3 Will Focus On These Classic Villains

It looks like the upcoming third entry into the G.I. Joe film franchise could see the live-action debuts of another set of iconic antagonists from the classic 1980.s "A Real American Hero" toy, comic book and cartoon lore. The latest rumor report is saying that the film will feature none other than G.I. Joe.s terrible twin twosome, Tomax and Xamot. According to the report from Film Divider, the yet-to-be named follow-up to the series. second entry in 2013.s G.I. Joe: Retaliation will have Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.s Roadblock tangling with the sinister split zygotes. It.s certainly not a rumor out from left field, especially given the state in which the lineup of the G.I. Joe rogues gallery was left after Retaliation was said and done. (Destro out of commission, Cobra Commander in hiding, mainstays, Zartan and Firefly definitely dead.) Clearly, the time has ...

How 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Went From In-Joke to Blockbuster

How 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Went From In-Joke to Blockbuster
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is currently the number-one movie in America — a development largely viewed like it's a plot by the evil Shredder himself. Technically directed by Jonathan Liebesman, this blockbuster reboot bears the stamp of its superstar producer, Transformers maestro Michael Bay: a sturdy children's-toy concept sits uncomfortably alongside destructive urban combat and awkward double entendres about turtle erections. Garnering bad reviews from both film critics and nostalgic fans, it nonetheless displaced its direct competitor, the much, much better-liked Guardians of the Galaxy, to seize control of the box office.
