Fyre Festival debacle to be chronicled in new documentary series

The Fyre Festival debacle was a bizarrely entertaining debacle that helped distract this country from the far more horrifying debacle happening in the White House, with the luxury-focused music festival in the Bahamas collapsing into anarchy once it became clear that practically no aspect of it had actually been…

Actually, Andy Dick was fired from two movies this month over claims of harassing behavior

Earlier today, we reported that comedian and actor Andy Dick—whose career has been dotted with decades worth of claims of sexual harassment, drug use, and general unprofessionalism—had been fired from Raising Buchanan, an indie movie he had been working on, due to claims of “groping people’s genitals, unwanted…

Weinstein Company pulls The Current War and Polaroid from November schedule 

The Weinstein Company is currently wrangling with how it can come out of the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal intact, but it’s starting to look more and more likely that the production company might not make it out of this at all. Last week, a private equity firm’s plan to buy The Weinstein Company fell through…

Jeremy Piven denies groping allegations "unequivocally" as CBS and HBO evaluate claims against him

According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS is investigating some sexual harassment complaints that Ariane Bellamar has made against Jeremy Piven in which she accuses him for groping her on the set of Entourage (Piven is currently starring in CBS’ Wisdom Of The Crowd). In a statement, the network simply said that it’s…

Twitter might finally be giving 280-character tweets to all its unwashed, no-checkmark peasants

For the last month or so, Twitter has found itself a social messaging service divided, splitting itself between the haves—i.e., those who’ve now been gifted with the ability to send out tweets with 280 characters, twice the traditional limit—and those of us scrabbling around in the bitter, barren soil of 140.

Lily Collins to play the girlfriend of Zac Efron's Ted Bundy in biopic

As reported by Deadline, Lily Collins has signed on for the “highly coveted role” of Elizabeth Kloepfer in Joe Berlinger’s Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile, a thriller/biopic about serial killer Ted Bundy. Kloepfer was a longtime girlfriend of Bundy’s who lived with him while he hid his murder spree from…

Bette Midler thinks that Hocus Pocus remake is bullshit

At least half the pleasure of Disney’s silly ’90s Halloween classic Hocus Pocus is watching Bette Midler tear through the town of Salem as witchy woman Winifred Sanderson, devouring the scenery with a degree of success far surpassing her efforts to gobble up little kids’ souls. But don’t expect to see Midler reprising…

The movie-a-day deal from MoviePass probably won't last much longer 

Recently, MoviePass dropped the price of its movie ticket subscription plan from $50 per month to $10 per moth, officially making the deal too good to survive very long. Basically, for less than the price of a single movie ticket, you could see one movie every day at any participating theater for free, and those…

Homestar Runner's annual Halloween special is here

Costumes aren’t the only reason to look forward to Halloween. With the spooky holiday comes innumerable annual traditions, whether it’s a viewing of It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown or the communal shaming of whoever wore blackface this year. Ah, but there’s another tradition known to fans of obscure online…

Now you can read the Duffer brothers’ own Stranger Things recaps

Since Stranger Things 2 dropped on Friday, many of us have been spending any available downtime trying to cram in all nine episodes, then reading everything we can about it. (May we suggest: Sean O’Neal’s own experiences with Dragon’s Lair, a look at the Halloween party in episode two, some speculations on the…

Blade Runner 2049 was originally 4 hours long 

Blade Runner 2049 was a very long movie, but unlike some very long movies that waste time with interminable sequences where King Kong goes iceskating or Adam Sandler refuses to stop hanging out with Seth Rogen at Leslie Mann’s house, Blade Runner 2049 actually moved along relatively well (give or take some of that sex…

HBO nabs itself another Kit Harington series

In case you somehow weren’t already aware, Game Of Thrones will end after its eighth season, which is probably coming sometime next year. That conclusion will have virtually the same effect on HBO’s ratings as it will your Sunday nights—leave them utterly devoid of meaning. And so the premium-cable network is trying…

Paramount digs up Starry Eyes directors for its Pet Sematary remake

Sometimes dead is better, but the chances of Paramount’s upcoming Pet Sematary remake (an inevitability, after the massive success of It for Warner Bros.) actually being something worth watching have increased. That’s thanks to the participation of directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer, whose 2014 film Starry Eyes…

Please continue to dress your big, dumb dogs up for Halloween

It’s Halloween! Sure, it’s a great time for adults to don costumes in a show of whimsy, but it is a much, much better time for children to wear costumes as a display of their carefree, imaginative nature. And you know what’s even better than kids in costumes? Animals, who do not give a shit and often do not even…

Betsy DeVos dressed as her exact opposite for Halloween 

One of the great thrills of Halloween is getting an opportunity to dress up like something you’re not, whether it’s a vampire, a supportive burger wife, or a cartoon teacher who cares so much about teaching kids that she takes them on magical and educational adventures. That last option is what Trump’s terrible…

Andy Dick fired from film over sexual harassment claims

Andy Dick has a long history of sexual harassment and assault allegations (and probably a career in there somewhere, too), which makes the news that he’s been fired from the indie film Raising Buchanan for sexually harassing people on set not at all surprising. The Hollywood Reporter was unable to reach any of the…

Watch this incorrigible asshole ruin all of his friend's Instagram food photos

It’s happened to all of us: You’re out to eat, enjoying some conversation, the restaurant’s carefully curated ambience, perhaps the muted tones of a couple arguing nearby. Some bearded man whisks by and drops a plate off at the table. The chefs have artfully arrayed the ingredients such that you’re not even sure what…

Dinosaur costume strikes terror into heart of world leader

Donald Trump spends most of his sleepless nights swatting away the demons perched on his heaving chest, so Halloween, a time when the monsters in his head manifest in physical form, is clearly not his favorite holiday. Just look at this trick-or-treating event at the White House last week, when our president couldn’t…

Larry David put together a Curb Your Enthusiasm playlist for Spotify

If one were trying to pinpoint the musical preferences of Larry David, one might assume it would be nothing more than a deafening chorus of groans. But fans of the show knows he has a soft spot for Wagner—one that got him into quite a bit of trouble in one memorable season-two episode—as well as numerous other…
