30 Years Later, How The Terminator Became an Enduring Classic

Sometimes a film's influence looms so large that you can hardly see the thing for what it is anymore. This week, James Cameron's The Terminator celebrates the 30th anniversary of its theatrical debut. For 30 years, it's been a phenomenon: an indie success story, a prescient tech treatise, begetter of a genre, and, of course, the inauspicious beginning of a franchise whose marketability is apparently inexhaustible. And it continues to endure. Next summer, Paramount Pictures will release Terminator: Genisys, the fifth film in a constellation of properties that include a dozen video games, several comic books, action figures, theme park see more

The Walking Dead, Season 5, Episode 3 Recap: The Most Brutal Episode Yet

And so, like the Terminus refugees gorging on human flesh, I must eat my words. In my review of last week's downbeat "Strangers," I criticized the writers for unfairly teasing the demise of Bob (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.) by suggesting, not inconspicuously, that he'd been discreetly scratched or bitten during his undead encounter that afternoon—only to have him kidnapped and dined upon instead. Well, all credit to the surprise: This week's episode, "Four Walls and Roof," picks up where "Strangers" left off, and it isn't long before Bob lets the smirking Gareth (Andrew J. West) in on his secret: He has see more

Watch: Following the World's Most Elusive Artist, Banksy

Last year, Banksy, the influential and mysterious English artist, held a monthlong residency (of sorts) in New York City that at some times appeared more like a treasure hunt or a wild-goose chase. Social media and clues on his website allowed the artist to turn all of New York into his roving, constantly evolving exhibition, complete with graffiti, performance, and sculpture. Anything and everything could become the next ephemeral work. see more

Shinola's Latest Timekeeper Doesn't Belong on Your Wrist

The term pocket watch can conjure up visions of someone performing hypnosis at a county fair or even bring to mind images of that bygone era between the World Wars, when vests were still an important feature of a man's wardrobe. But Shinola's new Henry Ford Pocket Watch, its first attempt at making this variety of timekeeper and the second installment in its Great Americans series, is an updated and solidly modern take on the metaphor. see more

6 Times Keanu Reeves Totally Nailed the One-Liner

Keanu Reeves' new movie John Wick opens this Friday, with the deep-monotone-voiced actor starring as a retired assassin who goes on a rampage. But as his devotees know all too well, what's most exciting about the arrival of any new Reeves film is the possibility that it'll contain a classic Reeves one-liner. He brings the same lovably blank gruffness to nearly every character he plays—from The Matrix's Internet-age messiah, Neo, to Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure's mega-mellow Ted—but it's that simplicity that allows Reeves to sell some of his punchiest dialogue. He's like a walking, talking embodiment of the Kuleshov see more
