Sometimes, 'SNL' creates a sketch that aims for a very specific demographic and just goes all-out in its attempt to win over that specific audience. We can argue as to whether or not this 'The Little Mermaid' sketch starring guest host Anna Kendrick is successful, but it's the kind of thing that was certainly designed to appeal to viewers who grew up with Disney, have a thing for 'Pitch Perfect,' and can recognize lousy modern pop songs.
The 2014 Oscars, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, started off with a bang. The comedienne, who previously hosted seven years ago, took the stage and immediately made it her own. Like any host worth her salt, she took the material given to her and blended it with her own specific persona, giving the telecast a gentle and amusing start.
Although 'Anchorman 2' wasn't groundbreaking at the box office even being a more moderately budgeted comedy, it did make significantly more than its beloved 2004 predecessor. So, could there be an 'Anchorman 3' somewhere down the line? As far as co-writer and director Adam McKay is concerned ... No. Never. Ever.
Philip Seymour Hoffman's tragic death occurred while he was nearing the end of his work on the two-part 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' movies, and while he only had seven days of filming left, those days included at least one key scene. We initially thought that these final scenes would be rewritten to exclude the character of Plutarch Heavensbee, but according to the NY Post, the filmmakers are planning to recreate the late actor with special effects to keep his presence intact.
'Groundhog Day' is revered as one greatest films of '90s, and to celebrate its upcoming twenty-first anniversary it's the perfect time to own a piece of the film's legacy. But we're not talking about a prop or something small. Nah, we're talking about the house where many of the key scenes were shot. It can now be yours for the low price of $985,000
When Blockbuster announced that it was officially closing its doors, it was hard to hear for any real movie fans who truly cared. After all, this is the company that helped kill nearly every small video rental chain and relished in carrying a limited selection. So it's not surprising that 'SNL' made a video commemorating the closing of the controversial (at least among cinephiles) company, and it's less surprising that it's as weird and mocking as the show can get.
It's Fall and Halloween is right around the corner, so you know what this means: pumpkins, and lots of 'em. Like us, the folks at 'SNL' know that this is the season where pumpkin products take center stage and invade every corner of your home, but unlike us, 'SNL' has the time, budget and duty to make a fake commercial that grotesquely showcases that there is one area of our lives that pumpkin flavor hasn't invaded quite yet.
When 'SNL' is on point, there are few live, late night variety shows that skewer American politics so well (but then again, it really does have that category all to itself). There was no way the show was going to miss an opportunity to make fun of the recent government shutdown and there was no way they weren't going to use guest host Miley Cyrus to help do it. The result? A truly bizarre and inspired parody of the music video for Cyrus' "We Don't Stop," which puts Michele Bachmann and John Boehner front and center. Naturally, the new song is called "We Did Stop."
There are few 'SNL' sketches as reliably funny as fake screen tests, which give the cast the opportunity to show off their best and craziest celebrity impersonations. It felt especially important in the most recent Miley Cyrus-hosted episode of the show -- with so many of the big names gone, this was a chance for the lesser known cast members to step up to the plate. And you know what? They did. Mostly.
The 'Toy Story' gang may have had a memorable cinematic farewell with the wonderful 'Toy Story 3,' but we're not done with Bonnie's (formerly Andy's) toys quite yet! The Woody, Buzz and the rest of the group are going to make their television debut with 'Toy Story of Terror,' a made-for-TV Halloween special that will attempt to bring some of that Pixar magic to the small screen. The first two promos for the special have arrived and ... it looks like more 'Toy Story.' That's a good thing, right?
Dennis Farina, the hugely recognizable veteran of film and television, has passed away at the age of 69. Over the course of his 32-year career, Farina specialized in playing cops and other authority figures, utilizing his background in law enforcement to springboard into acting.
Although many fans would agree that the third season of AMC's 'The Walking Dead' ended with a bit of a whimper, the trailer for the fourth season has arrived and gotten us excited all over again. Straight out of Comic-Con 2013 (read our coverage of the show's panel right here), the trailer has everything you'd want from this show: sweaty people screaming in southern accents, zombies munching on the flesh of the living, and all kinds of harrowing and morally grey situations.
