These Oscar Speeches Will Make You Laugh, Cry & Cringe

Right this very moment, the chosen ones in Hollywood are carefully considering their words, listing every agent and publicist, and jotting down some witty asides onto index cards, which they will carefully tuck inside a jacket pocket or Swarovski-embellished evening bag. If there's ever a time to ensure your public-speaking skills are on point, it's Oscars night. (Unless you're nominated in one of the four categories the Academy has decided to honor during the commercial breaks, in which case —...

Real restaurants from TV and movies

Restaurants, cafes, bakeries , bars, and the like are often a vital part of a story’s plot. Maybe it’s where a group of friends have coffee and spend time together or where two characters plan a murder. We all wish places like Central Perk from Friends existed or that we could visit The Three Broomsticks in Harry Potter for a Butterbeer. Unfortunately, while shows and movies use a myriad of filming locations all over the globe, not all of these are accessible — or even real — for fans to visit...

Will Smith’s Aladdin Genie Finally Appeared During the Grammys, and Viewers Were Creeped Out

When Disney's upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin was featured on an Entertainment Weekly cover story last December, fans were slightly concerned.

‘Aladdin’ TV Spot Finally Reveals Will Smith as the Big Blue Genie

When the first teaser trailer for Disney’s live-action remake of Aladdin first arrived, fans were fairly underwhelmed. Not only did the teaser offer very little footage of Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine, but it didn’t give us a look at Will Smith as the genie in the famous lamp at the center of the story. Even when the first images of Will Smith in the movie arrived, he wasn’t blue like the famed genie voiced by Robin Williams in the 1992 animated classic. But that changed t...

‘Jumanji 3’ Will Also Bring Back Nick Jonas’s Character

I’m still shocked that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is the second-highest grossing movie in Sony’s history, coming in only behind the James Bond hit Skyfall at the worldwide box office. But audiences ate it up, and the studio has a sequel slated for release this winter with many of the previous film’s cast members coming back for more. Now we can add one additional name to the list of Jumanji 3‘s returning players: Nick Jonas, who played Jefferson “Seaplane” McDonough, the avatar of a kid fro...

‘Venom’ Creator Todd McFarlane Wants Critics Over the Age of 16 to Leave the Movie Alone

Venom was a huge hit, but critics really did not like the movie. According to Todd McFarlane, one of the creators of the character, that’s not the movie’s fault. McFarlane says that movie critics are too old, and that they needed to unleash their inner 16-year-olds to truly enjoy the story of a giant goo monster who bites off heads. In summation, if all movie critics were 16, there would be no negative Venom criticism. With the exception of Tom Hardy‘s off-the-wall performance, I was not a f...

‘Mortal Engines’ Star Stephen Lang on Playing a Mummified Assassin, ‘Don’t Breathe’, ‘Avatar’ Sequels, and ‘Tombstone’ [Interview]

Over the course of a 37 year career, actor Stephen Lang has played his fair share of cowboys, marines, thugs, lawyers, cops, and more. But in Mortal Engines, he’s breaking new ground. In the new film, which hits theaters this week, Lang plays a “resurrected man” named Shrike, a mummified zombie assassin who’s on a never-ending hunt for protagonist Hester Shaw. I sat down with Lang last week and he told me about the tactics he wanted to avoid while playing this role, the physicality of the c...

10 Underappreciated Comedies of the 21st Century

10 underappreciated comedies of the 21st century Since 2000, it has seemed that all cinematic comedy is somewhat homogenous.  Comedies are almost all one or a combination of Judd Apatow, Paul Feig, Tyler Perry, or  Farrelly Brothers alumni.  Gone are the low budget, high concept comedies of the 80s and 90s like Weekend at Bernie’s , The ‘Burbs , or Funny Farm .  Sure, they were ridiculous but they had a simplistic charm that makes them infinitely enjoyable and rewatchable.  These days, yo...
