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

Why Are There So Many Cops on TV Right Now?

It's been a long time since Hill Street Blues, but it seems like network dramas are still obsessed with cops. Despite representing just a tiny slice of the American population, police officers are the biggest profession on prime-time television. And if you look at law enforcement in general, the total only goes higher. Meanwhile, the most common job in America, retail worker, has only two representations (and one is the owner of a mystical pawn shop on Once Upon a Time). see more

David Lynch: "Mankind Was Not Made to Suffer. Bliss Is Our Nature."

Mr. Lynch, did you learn Transcendental Meditation because you had an anger problem? No. I noticed I did have an anger. Many people have anger, and I was one of them. People direct anger at certain people they can get away with—I would take it out on my first wife. What happened was, I started meditating and two weeks later she came to me and said, "What's going on?" I said, "What do you mean?" And she said, "Where is that anger?" She didn't see it anymore. A lot of times, when people start meditating, they don't see the change see more

The Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln on Morality, Mythology, and Rick's Epic Beard

Andrew Lincoln has to be the hardest-working actor in show business. He's just wrapped his fifth consecutive season living a second life as Rick Grimes, the increasingly bedraggled antihero of AMC's brutal and bloody zombie drama The Walking Dead—a series so stratospherically popular that it's unlikely to end anytime soon. The show's blistering fifth season kicked off a little over a week ago with "No Sanctuary"—in which Rick finds himself duly bound and beaten, his throat nearly sliced—and, if the grisly final moments of this week's follow-up are any indication, there's a lot more brutality where that came from.

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
