Rocky IV: Fan Theory - Ivan Drago was a Robot! (video)

In some circles, creating a wild "fan theory" seems to have become just as popular as having an opinion on a film. Whether it be Jar Jar is a Sith Lord, ALADDIN is set in the future, or Deckard is a Replicant in BLADE RUNNER; these outrageous theories often make the viewing experience more enjoyable. Having a crazy fan theory about a film is a new way of appreciating cinema and...

Steve Carell & Emma Stone's Battle of the Sexes serves up a release date

Oh tennis, you're a pleasant sport and all, but no thank you. Your need to have me run here, there and everywhere on a hard court while spectators follow your bouncing ball like some mesmerized human metronome is simply not my idea of a good time. You see, I've got a heart condition, from the result of two open-heart surgeries, and there's no way I'm dropping...

Cubs finally win the World Series, and now they're gonna make a film of it

When you combine a supposed curse, a losing streak that spans over a century, and the winning hit made by the oldest player to homer in a Game 7 of the World Series (after being down by two points), you got a story made for cinema, son. Now, I don't give a shit about baseball (or any sport, really), but I definitely can get into sports movies. Like boxing bores the shit out...

Exclusive: Smash: Motorized Mayhem clip puts the pedal to the metal

Wee doggies, it's been ages since I've attended a demolition derby of any sort. As a child, I remember going to Nassau Coliseum to witness monster trucks the likes of Bigfoot and Gravedigger, who used their formidable size to grind beater-vehicles into muddy, wadded up balls of tin foil and then some. I've even been fortunate enough to attend a few local...

HBO & WWE to bring a larger-than-life Andre the Giant biopic to the screen

Back in the day, I used to be all about the warriors and drama of the WWF. While I didn't always pay close attention to the story lines between scharacters, I was known to appreciate an entertaining and sweaty ballet of strength and skill as much as the next 8-year-old growing up in the 80s. If I think back, I can still recall the days when The Ultimate Warrior was an...

Black-ish creator to take White Men Can't Jump remake to the B-ball court

I don’t know about you, but I can’t play basketball worth a damn. I used to love playing H-O-R-S-E on the school courts, or firing up my Nintendo Entertainment System for a few rounds of Double Dribble. However, that’s about where my career ended in regard to shooting hoops. Today, it’s been announced that Black-ish creator Kenya Barris is...

Cool Videos: If Rocky IV Really Happened

Not too long ago, we got a look at a faux-ESPN: 30 FOR 30 special that dealt with the special season of the old California Angels as depicted in the Disney motion picture ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD and the aftermath. Well, the folks over at College Humor are back at it again, this time taking a good look at the events of ROCKY IV as if they were real. Now some of you might be asking...

Cool Videos: Your perspective on The Karate Kid is about to change

We all know THE KARATE KID backward and forward. No, I'm not talking about that wretched Jaden Smith remake. I'm talking about the 1984 classic starring Ralph Macchio that taught us all about the value in waxing cars, painting fences and just about every last bit of housework you might be forced to get done on your weekends. Daniel-san was a hero to a lot of us...
