Mindhunter's Ed Kemper interview was eerily similar to a real interview with the killer

Serial killer Ed Kemper is one of the great hooks of David Fincher’s excellent Mindhunter, a hulking but folksy monster played by Cameron Britton. A series of long dialogs with him kickstart the show, providing momentum as the protagonists try to create a taxonomy for understanding some of the most grisly murderers in…

Please enjoy this video of some dude throwing Russian flags at the president

Today Donald Trump is fighting (spins enormous wheel) Republican Senator Bob Corker, hopping on the internet this morning to personally insult him over the course of several tweets just before the two meet today. The lunch-time sit-down with Republican senators will probably rustle up some more fodder for the…

ESPN cancels Barstool Van Talk after a single episode over misogynistic blog

As reported by The Daily Beast, ESPN has decided to cancel new series Barstool Van Talk after only one episode.

Issa Rae turns back the clock for ’90s-set HBO drama series

While her Golden Globe-nominated dramedy is on hiatus after its second season, Insecure star and co-creator Issa Rae is working on a new project with HBO.

You have 2 guesses as to what the new Woody Allen movie is about, and you’ll only need 1

Woody Allen no longer casts himself as the romantic lead in his films, but it’s still pretty obvious when the director’s own viewpoints, neuroses, and inclinations are coming out of his male leads’ mouths. All of which is to say that a new Woody Allen movie, tentatively titled A Rainy Day In New York, is currently…

Now the cops might ticket you just for singing “Everybody Dance Now” in your car

Not since Marge Simpson busted out her best C+C Music Factory impression has a performance of “Everybody Dance Now” resulted in such mortification. Time was, Americans thought of Canada as a peaceful place. America’s hat was where you went to enjoy beautiful wildlife, friendly people, and some of the finest music ever…

The Lost Boys originally had a post-credits scene

Though post-credits scenes are increasingly associated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they’ve always been fair game for any genre. Matthew Broderick shooed away lingering audiences after the credits wrapped on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, while The Grey ended with round two of that “Liam Neeson versus a wolf” fight.…

Bill O'Reilly "mad at God" for not protecting him against sexual harassment claims

The nature of God has vexed theologians and philosophers for millennia. “Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him,” the Bible tells us. “Because we cannot know what God is, but only what He is not, we cannot consider how He is but only how He is not,” Saint Thomas Aquinas once wrote. And so it is that we can…

This "Bulls On Parade"-Owen Wilson mashup is still probably better than Prophets Of Rage

Did you know that Owen Wilson says “wow” a lot? Probably, considering not only did some genius make a supercut of it, but some other wiseasses worked that “wow” into things such as lightsaber duels. Now, Wilson’s slacker-chic rasp has leaped, inevitably some would say, from the corporeal world into the musical one,…

Mark Wahlberg hopes God forgives him for Boogie Nights (also nearly beating 2 men to death)

Mark Wahlberg, who somehow regularly has the ear of various Catholic officials, from cardinals to the pope, has once again implored a holy audience to forgive him the sins of his misspent youth, including making Boogie Nights and the day he spent attacking Asian men. The Chicago Tribune reports that, while in town…

Kevin Can Wait is now spiraling into an abyss of dead-wife jokes

Let’s quickly recap the saga of Kevin Can Wait’s first wife, played by Erinn Hayes, who was senselessly killed off in between seasons so she could be replaced with Kevin James’ old King Of Queens costar Leah Remini. It’s difficult to call the public response as outrage, more a sort of delighted puzzlement at the…

Harvey Weinstein's former assistant breaks NDA to discuss history of allegations

In an interview with The Financial Times (via The Hollywood Reporter), a woman who used to work as Harvey Weinstein’s assistant at Miramax’s London office several years ago has broken a non-disclosure agreement she signed so she could discuss a supposed history of cover-ups that have prevented Weinstein staffers from…
