This ‘Freddy Got Fingered’ Conspiracy Theory From Tom Green Actually Sounds Plausible

This ‘Freddy Got Fingered’ Conspiracy Theory From Tom Green Actually Sounds Plausible
I haven’t thought about actor/comedian Tom Green or his 2001 absurdist comedy Freddy Got Fingered since we wrote this article in March of 2016 about how a man was arrested after not returning his VHS rental of it after 14 years. If you told me that Green had a conspiracy theory about why Freddy Got Fingered didn’t […]

The Hugh Hefner “Playboy Effect” Conspiracy Theory on Sexual Harassment

Some called him a visionary and some called him a creepy old man that had serious control issues. It might seem like it’s too soon after his passing but, with all due respect, Hugh Hefner was a bit of a control freak when it came to his women. They weren’t allowed to have a life outside of his influence most of the times is what a few of them have said, and while they were in the mansion they barely got to dictate what they did on their own time, if there was such a thing. According to the testimony

Conspiracy Nation: The JFK Documents and the Movie You Have to See (No, It’s Not ‘JFK’)

Conspiracy Nation: The JFK Documents and the Movie You Have to See (No, It’s Not ‘JFK’)
I’ll never forget the first time I understood, in my bones, how conspiracy theory works. It’s like understanding a drug — you can’t, really, until you’ve been high on it. It was four years after 9/11, and I was having dinner at a Thai restaurant that was empty save for myself and a friend and a trio of middle-aged men who were seated at a nearby table. They overheard our conversation — about the Iraq War, the media, etc. — and chimed in.

After a few minutes, one of them declared, quite casually, that 9/11 was an inside job, and the three began to explain how it all happened. I’d never paid much attention to 9/11 conspiracy theories, so this became an informal introduction, and I was struck by how levelheaded and informed the men sounded; they weren’t overheated crackpots. Intrigued, I went home and Googled “9/11 conspiracy theory,” and that’s when I got sucked in, linking

My Secret “Albert Pujols Was on Steroids The Whole Time” Conspiracy Theory

It’s kind of sad state of events really since professional baseball used to be something that would never once be questioned when it came to the performance of its players, but one era managed to screw all that up. Unfortunately for Albert Pujols it’s an era he happened to belong to. The use of steroids in the Mlb became a very serious problem at this point and thanks to the proliferation of PEDs in the sport everyone that did well was under close scrutiny for a long time. This didn’t mean that everyone was guilty, it simply meant that they

Why ‘The Leftovers,’ ‘Transparent,’ and ‘BoJack Horseman’ Missed Out on Major Emmys

Why ‘The Leftovers,’ ‘Transparent,’ and ‘BoJack Horseman’ Missed Out on Major Emmys
Not every TV show can get the Emmy nominations they deserve. That’s been a fact of life since the awards ceremony began 68 years ago, and it’s only intensified in the new golden age of television.

But the 2017 Emmy nominations unveiled a few major shocks we have yet to shake. Namely, why did “The Leftovers,” “Transparent,” and “BoJack Horseman” all miss out on major nominations?

The Leftovers” earned one Emmy nod, for Ann Dowd as Guest Actress. “BoJack Horseman” landed one, as well, for Kristen Schaal’s voice acting. And “Transparent” did very well in total nominations — landing seven, including three acting nods — but missed out on Outstanding Comedy Series for the first time in its three seasons of eligibility.

The Best Summer Television Shows of the 21st Century, Ranked

The Best Summer Television Shows of the 21st Century, Ranked
In the not-so-good old days, summer used to be a break for more than just students. It was time off from great TV, as broadcast networks aired reruns, sports, and reality competitions while they assumed people were outside having fun. But since the new golden age began, all these TV shows have had to fit in somewhere, and many networks chose to run them during the less competitive summer months.

That’s led to a boon of TV’s best shows popping up when no series dared debut before. So, to honor the latest summer sensation — Netflix’s “Glow” — we’ve gathered the elite qualifiers below and ranked the seasons by overall quality, summer spirit, and re-watchability. To be eligible, seasons needed to be released in the months between June 1 and August 31 during the 21st century. After all, there’s plenty of new options to consider, but sometimes you want

A “Willy Wonka” Conspiracy Theory That Trumps Any Other Conspiracy Theory Ever

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory will forever remain as one of my favorite movies and books of all-time. Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka is easily one of the best characters ever portrayed on the big screen and anyone who tells you different hasn’t seen the movie. While the movie is great and on the surface seems like its for kids, we all know just how insane this movie really is. Wonka himself is a lunatic and the movie doesn’t even remotely hide this fact. However, today I read a theory about the film that blew my mind. If you

The Most Disappointing Year in Movies

In 1997, a film cynic was born.

Seeing Star Wars ruined should have been a sign that 1997 would be the worst year ever for blockbusters. George Lucas’s Special Editions, intended to “improve” the original trilogy but mostly doing the opposite, started arriving in January. By the time of the release of the new version of Return of the Jedi in March, my anticipation for anything ought to have been demolished. But I couldn’t have imagined that was only the beginning.

Actually, the first steps towards the end of an era were made in the early ’90s. That just wasn’t a great time for big movies compared to the prior decade. Some of my biggest letdowns of all time included Hudson Hawk in 1991 and Death Becomes Her in 1992. Jurassic Park wasn’t good enough for me, having read the book. Independence Day put me to sleep in the theater. Beloved

‘Shazaam’ Is Real: College Humor ‘Finds’ Long-Lost Sinbad Genie Movie That Doesn’t Actually Exist
If you thought the “Shazaam” phenomenon was over, what with the fleeting nature of the never-ending meme cycle, then you may have mixed feelings about an April Fool’s video released by College Humor yesterday. Presented as two minutes of found footage from the film in question — a nonexistent and vaguely racist conflation of “Kazaam,” in which Shaq plays a genie, and Sinbad’s ’90s oeuvre — the video asserts that “Shazaam” does in fact exist.

Complete with a faux tracking effect and snippets of a cereal commercial, the video finds two kiddos rifling through boxes in their garage when they happen upon a lamp that’s sure to raise alarm bells in anyone who obsessively watched “Aladdin” as a child. Out pops the eponymous wish-granter, played by the star of “Houseguest” and “First Kid” himself,

Watch James Corden's Musical Spoof Starring Trump, Spicer, Conway, Bannon

James Corden imagined the horrific ambitions of President Donald Trump and his administration in a parody of Matilda's "When I Grow Up" on The Late Late Show Monday. The performance featured Matilda composer Tim Minchin as Trump, Broadway star Ben Platt as Sean Spicer, actress Abigail Spencer as Kellyanne Conway and Corden as Steve Bannon.

The bit found the four performers rocking back and forth on swings, singing about telling lies, taking away health insurance and denying climate change. "When I grow up," Corden sang as Bannon, "I will

‘The Mandela Effect’ Set for Big Screen Treatment, David Guy Levy Tapped to Direct Psychological Sci-Fi Thriller — Exclusive

  • Indiewire
This isn’t fake news. Periscope Entertainment has announced today that David Guy Levy will direct their upcoming psychological sci-fi thriller “The Mandela Effect,” which is written by Steffen Schlachtenhaufen. The film “a man who becomes obsessed with facts and events that have been collectively misremembered by thousands of people. Believing the phenomena to be the symptom of something much larger, his obsession eventually leads him to question reality itself.”

The title refers to the strange phenomena of mass groups of people collectively “remembering” events or things that never happened. The theory pulls its name from the bizarre case of many people believing that Nelson Mandela died in prison — going so far as to “recall” clips from a televised funeral — though the civil rights leader actually died in 2013. Other examples of the so-called effect include misquoted movie lines (“Luke, I am your father” is a biggie, so is ““Life is like a box of chocolates,

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 12 Review: Hot Potato Soup

  • TVfanatic
There are guest stars, and then there is Patton Oswalt. And then, there is Patton Oswalt. And more Patton Oswalt.

On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 12, Oswalt's Agent Koenig was back. As was Agent Koenig. And Agent Koenig. And – surprise! – Agent Koenig's sassy sister, L.T., otherwise known as "the original Koenig." Didn't see that one coming, did you?

Considering that "android" was always the most obvious explanation as for why there appeared to be an army of Agent Koenigs (clones being the other option regularly debated by fans), it was inevitable that Koenig and Kompany would resurface during the Lmd storyline.

The opening scene, featuring Oswalt quoting iconic lines from Back to the Future and Star Wars while wheeling around an arcade on a hoverboard, was an ideal way to be reintroduced to the character, who always brings a welcome dose of levity to S.H.I.E.L.

31 Hits DVD/Bluray/Digital HD This December; Comes With Four hour Documentary

Rob Zombie’s latest film, 31, has had the effect most of his films tend to have: a pretty divisive one. Personally, I Loved the film (review) and think it’s one of the most entertaining horror films in a long, long time. It’s unique, it’s fun and it’s brutal as hell. Zombie created a true horror icon in the making with Doom Head (Richard Brake) and the film is full of excellent performances.

The film, along with its two (on the Bluray) And four hour making of documentaries (the four hour doc is an exclusive to the Digital HD copy) , are hitting DVD/Bluray/Digital HD on December 20th, via Lionsgate. We’ll definitely be checking this one out and even as divisive as Zombie’s films tend to be, his making of’s are always epic. Will you be picking this one up?
