Guillermo del Toro was very cool about being referred to as "Benecio Del Toro"

Rex Reed has been a film critic for a long time—too long, one might argue—a fact that, every once in a while, is made evident in his reviews. There was the time he turned a review of Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy into a bizarre, offensive rant about how Koreans are weird and kimchi is gross, and the time he devoted…

Everyone at Vox talked about it for a long time and they’ve decided that you’re old enough now—and, more importantly, mature enough—to finally find out where movie babies come from.

This year’s list of the top 1,000 comedians has a perfectly 2017 spin to it

While some people may be satisfied with year-end lists consisting of 10 or even 20 entries— some of which are great and you should definitely go read them —others, like comedian Zach Broussard, set their sights a little higher.

Terry Crews is also a pretty great artist, in case you'd forgotten

God bless Terry Crews, a guy who can bring endless positivity to everything from acting and sports, to waging a campaign against the ugly specter of toxic masculinity.

Can someone get Bill O'Reilly a decent tailor, please?

We don’t normally think of Bill O’Reilly—a man whose most popular fashion accessories generally stop at a scowl and a serviceable suit with a sexual harassment lawyer’s card safely hidden in the pocket—as a vocal clotheshorse. But lest we forget that O’Reilly is one of America’s last remaining Renaissance men—in that…

Insane Clown Posse loses a major battle in its fight against gang designation 

It’s a sad day for those who are down with the clown, as a federal appeals court has dismissed a lawsuit filed by the Insane Clown Posse to try and stop the FBI from labeling the group’s fans—Juggalos—as a “loosely-organized hybrid gang.” The rap duo initially filed their lawsuit a few years ago, but a judge threw it…

This new Chess Championship logo is totally down to fuck

Earlier today, SBNation noted a bold new marketing direction for the World Chess Championship 2018, the London-based effort to once again crown the reigning champion of the game of kings.

Today is doing just fine without Matt Lauer, thanks

Suggesting that, just maybe, Matt Lauer wasn’t so vital to the success of NBC’s Today that he should have been allowed to install an informal sex dungeon in his office, Deadline reports that the morning news show is continuing to post strong ratings in the wake of the long-time host’s departure. And while analysts are…

Fox News contributor casually claims that the FBI may have planned to kill Donald Trump

Fox News contributors are sort of like human clickbait, with their careers entirely dependent on their ability to regularly get everybody’s attention with hot scoops on Democrat lies or some new way that foreign people are planning to destroy America. Radio host and Fox News talking head Kevin Jackson tends to do this…

The Room is finally getting the theatrical wide release it always deserved—for one night only

There's a new, insane conspiracy theory tearing up 4chan

It’s a curious thing that the same alt-right scumbags who scream about “facts” and “fake news” are many of the same people bellowing about unsubstantiated conspiracy theories propagated on forums like Reddit and, especially, 4chan. In the same way that Republicans bent over backwards to justify voting for an alleged…

Rian Johnson is being very diplomatic about the Last Jedi backlash

Recently, the most reactionary Star Wars fans have jumped into two camps: Those who hated The Force Awakens for being too faithful to the old movies, and those who hated The Last Jedi for being too different from the old movies.
