Tom Cruise Movies in 9 Minutes - James Corden Role Call

James Corden has plenty of fun with “Carpool Karaoke” over on The Late Late Show at CBS. In fact, people love it so much that Apple Music ordered an entire TV series based on the premise. However, my personal favorite gag of James Corden’s is when he gets a big movie star to reenact their entire filmography in just a few minutes. Tom Hanks did it in eight minutes, Matt Damon did it in seven minutes and Arnold Schwarzenegger did it in six minutes. Now it’s Tom Cruise‘s turn, and this one takes the longest yet.

Watch almost all the Tom Cruise movies reenacted in just 9 minutes after the jump, and there just might be a cameo from one of Tom Cruise’s former co-stars. Read More »

John Cleese's The Walking Dead Recap

If there’s one person who knows a lot about walking, it’s John Cleese. Therefore, while it might seem completely out of left field to have the comedian from Monty Python give us a recap of all six season of The Walking Dead, it’s actually brilliant.

This coming weekend brings the seventh season premiere of The Walking Dead, and we’ll finally get to see who Negan knocked into the next world with his signature weapon, Lucille, in the cliffhanger from last season. If you need a reminder of what’s happened over the past six years of the show, this recap is a rather entertaining way to catch up. Actually, it’s pretty entertaining even if you don’t need to catch up.

VOTD: Is VHS Tape Quality As Bad As We Remember?

VHS Tape Comparison Video

The format of DVD was introduced in 1995, but it wouldn’t be until the early 2000s that it began outpacing VHS in video rental establishments and outselling them in stores. DVD was leaps and bounds better than VHS, simply because the video quality was much better, and it also allowed for the presence of special features such as featurettes, gag reels, film commentary and much more. Since then, we’ve jumped to Blu-ray, though the rise in quality wasn’t quite as impressive. However, when we look back at the jump from VHS to DVD, was the video quality of the former really so bad?

A new video examination from the YouTube tech geek vlogger known as The 8-Bit Guy dives into the quality of VHS tapes, specifically with regards to movies, by comparing them to the most common high quality format we have today.

Deadpool Marketing Video

It’s crazy to think that we now live in a time where an R-rated Deadpool movie is now one of the most successful movies of the year. It took years to get the character who was so grossly mistreated in X-Men Origins: Wolverine into his own movie, but the dedication of Ryan Reynolds, writers Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick and director Tim Miller kept it alive. However, the fans also had a key part in convincing 20th Century Fox to finally take a chance on an R-rated superhero.

Thankfully, the gamble paid off, and one of the main reasons for that success is the unique marketing onslaught that Deadpool brought everywhere. The Merc with a Mouth’s traditional breaking of the fourth wall allowed for some of the most unique advertising we’ve seen from a blockbuster in recent memory, so much that it’s been nominated for a Clio Award, which recognizes innovation and creative excellence in advertising, design and communication.

In traditional Deadpool fashion, the nomination is being accepted by Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, praising the movie marketing for no less than five minutes. But beware, because the video is very much NSFW, just like the movie Read More »

Don Roy King video profile

Even people who aren’t die hard Saturday Night Live fans like myself know who Lorne Michaels is. When you’re the man responsible for creating one of the biggest, groundbreaking television shows of all time, and you continue to run the show for nearly four decades (there were some years he wasn’t in charge), even casual fans are bound to learn your name. But for the past 10 years, there’s been another man responsible for bringing SNL to your screen.

Don Roy King has been the director of Saturday Night Live for 10 years now (not quite as long as Kenan Thompson’s time on the show which began in 2003). He calls the shots for a 90-minute sketch comedy show that is broadcast live across the nation on network television after being put together in a single week. There is no other job like it, and it’s a miracle the show even gets off the ground each week. But with the work of Don Roy King, more often than not it goes smoother than it ever should, and a new video profile dives into his career and work on the fast-paced show. Read More »

Tom Cruise Running - Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol

It’s no secret that superstar Tom Cruise usually ends up running at some point in nearly every single movie he’s made. He’s quite the spry action star at age 54, and he’s showing no sign of slowing down soon. With Jack Reacher: Never Go Back coming to theaters this coming weekend, we’re bound to see him sprinting again, but until then, how about we find out just how long Tom Cruise has been running on the big screen.

There have been montages of Tom Cruise running put together before, but this new one appears to be the most comprehensive because it rounds up all the little clips of the actor running. The video starts all the way back in Cruise’s younger days on movies like T.A.P.S. and The Outsiders up through last year’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Find out how long we’ve watched Tom Cruise running on the big screen below. Read More »

VOTD: How ‘Suicide Squad’ Should Have Ended

How Suicide Squad Should Have Ended

One of the year’s most divisive blockbusters was Suicide Squad. It wasn’t quite as hotly debated as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was earlier this year, but it’s still very much a heated topic of conversation. We’ll see how people feel once they get a chance to revisit the film after it hits Blu-ray and DVD on December 13th, just in time to be given as a Christmas present to someone you either really love or really hate.

Until then, the folks over at How It Should Have Ended have taken the time to pick apart Suicide Squad, pointing out some of the gaping plot holes and questionable decisions made throughout the entirety of the DC Extended Universe film.

Steven Spielberg Stanley Kubrick side-by-side shot comparison

If you’re more than a casual fan of either Steven Spielberg or Stanley Kubrick, then you likely know that the film A.I. Artificial Intelligence is basically a collaboration between the two filmmakers. Kubrick began working on the film in the 1970s and kept developing it through the 90s, mostly because he didn’t believe technology would effectively allow him to create the lead character David in the way he wanted.

In 1995, Kubrick handed the project to Steven Spielberg, who would run with it starting in 1999 following the death of the iconic director behind The Shining, A Clockwork Orange and 2001: A Space Odyssey. However, when you look at some parts of A.I. Artificial Intelligence, it’s almost as if Kubrick was looking over Spielberg’s shoulder. There are some striking similarities in shots between the 2001 sci-fi film and Kubrick’s previous work.

In a funny new video, Kendrick tries to convince Affleck to cast her as Robin in the upcoming film. Or Batman, she’s not picky.
