The Walking Dead Season 5, Episode 2: Meet the People Eaters

Let's talk about cannibalism, shall we? Tonight's installment of The Walking Dead, "Strangers", concludes with a gruesome revelation: the survivors of last week's raid on Terminus are munching merrily away on a bit of fire-roasted human thigh—all before the eyes of the thigh's former owner, Bob (Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.). Well then! That's one way to establish irrefutable villainy. But while "No Sanctuary" conspired to portray Terminus mastermind Gareth (Andrew J. West) as an irresistibly charismatic pretty-boy in the register of, say, Andrew Scott's Moriarty, "Strangers" tries a little too hard to demonstrate his bona fides as a worthy season-wide threat. see more

6 Clips that Prove Michael Keaton's "Comeback" is Long Overdue

In 1989, actor-comedian Michael Keaton played the lead in the most popular movie in the world, Batman, which should've made Keaton a superstar. Instead, Batman stalled what had been a strong run for Keaton, anchoring mainstream comedies like Mr. Mom and Beetlejuice. This weekend, writer-director Alejandro González Iñárritu's new movie Birdman opens in limited release, starring Keaton as an actor trying to revive a career that went off the rails after he played a comic book hero. Hmmm ... sound familiar? Keaton has insisted that his Birdman character has nothing to do with his own life, but critics who've seen see more

The Lighter Side of The Walking Dead

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, perhaps it can be argued that the number of spoofs a TV series inspires is in direct correlation to its cultural relevance. At least that seems to be true in the case of AMC's mega-popular The Walking Dead, which has sparked countless parodies in the nearly four years since it hit the airwaves, from a music-video cover of the disco anthem "I Will Survive" to a Broadway-style musical to a particularly gory version of "Dumb Ways to Die." see more

The 10 Best Horror Films You Haven't Seen Yet

Halloween is fast approaching, which for the cinephiles among us means one thing: Horror-movie marathons. It's a tradition of the season to binge-watch scary movies in whatever capacity they may be available, from dusted-off thriftshop videotapes to midnight screenings at your local theater, and the more punctured arteries and severed appendages the better. The only challenge is what to do once you've exhausted the horror canon. What do you watch after you've slogged through every Friday the 13th sequel, every movie that ends in of the Dead, every remake and prequel and crossover you can get your hands on? Fear see more

Brad Pitt and Jimmy Fallon Break-Dance In Lieu of Traditional Interview

If you're a late-night-talk-show host like Jimmy Fallon and you have, say, the biggest male celebrity in the universe (who happens to be our November cover boy) on your show, how would you interview him? You could, of course, sit across a desk from him and chat about life and his latest project, but, well, how boring is that? And if you have, you know, Brad Pitt, there's certainly some way you could spice up the conversation, right? Well, Fallon figured it out, and the answer was . . . break dancing. Yep, you heard us right. Confused? Excited? see more

Jason Schwartzman Is the Guy You Love to Hate in Listen Up Philip

Jason Schwartzman isn't an asshole in real life. But he does a fine job of playing one onscreen in Listen Up Philip, the latest indie effort from writer-director Alex Ross Perry. In the film, out this Friday, Schwartzman plays Philip Lewis Friedman, a successful—albeit venomous—young writer who is eagerly awaiting the publication of his second novel. . . and making all those who know and love him, including his doting girlfriend Ashley (played by Elisabeth Moss) and his idol/fellow novelist Ike Zimmerman (Jonathan Pryce), miserable in the process. see more

15 Reasons We Would Watch Robert Downey Jr. in Anything

Good news for Robert Downey Jr. fans (and who isn't a Robert Downey Jr. fan?): The man who rebooted both Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes (sorry, Benedict Cumberbatch) will be bringing his Tony Stark snark to Captain America 3. Though audiences weren't so psyched to see his dramatic appearance in The Judge this past weekend—it grossed only $13.3 million compared to Iron Man 3's $409 million—we're pretty sure they'll be thrilled to see RDJ battle wits and muscles with Captain America Chris Evans. But since we have to wait until 2016 (ugh) to see the two Marvel superheroes go to see more

A Brief History of The Rapture in TV & Movies

If there's one thing we can learn from recent trends in TV and film—and newscasts—it's that humans are obsessed with the eventual demise of our species. Whether we get taken out by an incurable virus, a zombie apocalypse, an alien invasion, global warming, a nuclear holocaust, or an angry oversized lizard, the message is clear: Something's gonna destroy us and it may well be our own damn fault. see more

Pulp Fiction at 20: How Tarantino Defined Independent Cinema

On the evening of September 23rd, 1994, Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction had its hotly anticipated North American premiere at the opening night gala of the New York Film Festival, at the Lincoln Center on the Upper West Side. It was the film's first screening since its world premiere that May at Cannes, where it took home the Palme d'Or, the festival's top prize, and expectations could hardly have been higher. In short the crowd was prepared not so much for a film as for an event—and they got one, though perhaps not the one they'd imagined. see more
