Last night, Hollywood got drunk as hell and received Golden Globes from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. You can get the full list of the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards winners right here, but if you missed the ceremony last night, then you missed out on a rather delightful opening musical number led by ceremony host Jimmy Fallon.
Inspired by several of the musical sequences from La La Land, the opening number features Jimmy Fallon and a long line of Hollywood’s finest singing and dancing through all the big movies and TV shows of 2016. And for all you Stranger Things fans out there, you’ll be happy to see one of your favorite characters make a surprise comeback.

Not too long ago, we highlighted a video that was bold enough to pick the best opening credits sequences from movies. They left out some that could have easily made the list without any argument, but it was never going to be an easy task.
This time, we have a video that tries to accomplish the seemingly easier task of picking the best end credits sequences in movies. We’re not talking about credits scenes or teases like Marvel Studios does but rather credits sequences that both give credit to the cast and crew but also do something stylish and/or fun to end the movie.
So what are the best end credits sequences in movies? Find out below. Read More »
There’s no doubt that one of the most iconic scenes in Pulp Fiction is when Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta confront Brett and his friends to retrieve a briefcase with an unknown object inside. In the scene, Jackson takes it upon himself to take a bite out of Brett’s cheeseburger, which he says they got from a place called Big Kahuna Burger, described as a Hawaiian burger joint. Now one YouTube cook has taken it upon himself to make a “tasty burger” inspired by the one that Jackson takes a bite of in Pulp Fiction.

Last year, right in the heart of summer, we featured a trailer for an ambitious project that was taking the animated world of Futurama and turning it into a live-action short film, complete with make-up and effects that could fuel your nightmares. The project wasn’t yet done, and there was no indication as to when it would be done. But the time has come.
Fan-O-Rama: A Futurama Fan Film is exactly what the title says it is, but they’ve used real actors in place of animated illustrations, complete with some photorealistic visual effects, and some rather unsettling make-up and prosthetics. Clocking in at 18-minutes, this is quite the ambitious piece of work.

The more advanced our technology gets, the more stories we’ve gotten about artificial intelligence. However, sci-fi narratives about artificial intelligence have started to grow more complex and interesting as the real-life technology advances and influences our ideas. While Westworld is telling a much bigger, longer story involving some of the most advanced androids we’ve ever seen becoming self-aware of their abilities and questioning their purpose and existence, movies like Ex Machina and Her have give us very different portraits of artificially intelligent creations.
Now a new video imagines what it might be like if two different artificially intelligence beings from the big screen talked to each other. HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey and Samantha from Her are two very different artificially intelligent constructs, but thanks to some clever editing, they sound like an old married couple.

Not only is Arrival one of the best films of the year, it’s also a thoughtful sci-fi film that takes an intellectual approach to the arrival of extra terrestrial life on our planet. There’s a lot of talk about real science and linguistics. But this is a Hollywood movie, and sometimes liberties must be taken with real science for a filmmaker to tell the story they want to tell.
However, in the case of Arrival, it sounds like they actually stayed pretty close to real scientific theories, practices and more in order to tell a grounded story of having close encounters with alien life. In a recent episode of Science vs Cinema, the web series takes a closer look at all the real science on display in Denis Villeneuve‘s movie. But beware, there are some major spoilers for the movie, so don’t watch or read below if you haven’t seen it yet. Read More »
We already know that the next installment under the Star Wars Story banner following Rogue One is a movie that will follow a young Han Solo. Disney and Lucasfilm have already brought on Phil Lord & Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street) to direct, and Alden Ehrenreich has been to play the smuggler originated by Harrison Ford in 1977 with Donald Glover as his old buddy Lando Calrissian. But that movie won’t arrive until 2018.
In the meantime, some dedicated Star Wars fans got together to create a rather impressive short film following Han Solo on one of his early adventures. The project is called Han Solo: A Smuggler’s Trade, and while it’s obviously not up to the quality of any of the big screen chapters, but for a production made by fans, it’s one of the better attempts we’ve seen.

This week delivered the tragic one-two punch that was the death of actress and writer Carrie Fisher, followed by the death of her classic screen icon mother Debbie Reynolds just one day later. The two women made huge waves in the entertainment industry and won’t soon be forgotten thanks to their place in the history of cinema and television.
We’ve already seen countless colleagues and friends pay tribute to Carrie Fisher, and we remembered the actress’ irresistible charm by way of a series of videos showing her blunt, candid sense of humor. Now it’s time to watch Carrie Fisher honor her late mother as only a daughter can when the Singin’ in the Rain star was presented with a Lifetime Achievement award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards last year.

You might remember back in 2013, an editor by the name of Pierre-Alexandre Chauvat put together a movie mash-up called Everybody Wants To Kill Bruce. The nearly 10 minute short cleverly edited 39 movies together to make it seem as if Bruce Willis was a target in every single one of them. And now there’s a sequel.
Everybody Wants To Kill Bruce 2 does the exact same thing that the first movie mash-up did, but like any good sequel, it ups the ante by having the hunt for Bruce Willis span 53 movies this time. Watch it below! Read More »
It’s still shocking to think about, but American treasure Carrie Fisher is no longer with us. She has been continuously remembered and mourned by her friends and colleagues since news of her passing was reported yesterday. Meanwhile, her fans have nothing but love and respect to give as well, not just for her career in entertainment, but for her honest, helpful voice discussing mental illness, alcoholism, and drug abuse.
Even though we didn’t know Carrie Fisher, it’s easy for us to feel like we did having experienced her bright personality for decades. Therefore, it’s important to remember at her best. While we know all about her best moments on film in Star Wars, When Harry Met Sally, The Blues Brothers and more, there are plenty of other shining moments that give us infinitely more reasons to love the best of Carrie Fisher.
