Teddy Bridgewater: My Knee's Healthy Enough to Dance My Ass Off!

  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_6ozjt07y"]] Teddy Bridgewater just issued a strong statement about the health of his left knee without saying a word -- in the form of a Locker Room Dance Party!  Almost 1 year to the day after suffering a catastrophic knee injury -- and with questions if he'll be able to play in 2017 -- the Vikings Qb turned up the music and busted out the dance moves to prove he's on the mend.  Teddy looked like he could

Great Job, Internet!: Indiana Jones-Star Wars mashup manages to brutally murder Jar Jar, so there’s that

  • The AV Club
The requirements for a successful movie mashup really depend on the ultimate goal of the one doing the mashing. Maybe you’re looking to prove two different movies are actually the same movie, so you match them up beat-for-beat like this Avatar/Pocahontas mashup. Maybe you’re aiming for maximum comedic effect, so you pick movies from opposing sides of the quality and genre spectrum, like The Wizard Of Oz and You Got Served. Or maybe you just realized Harrison Ford was in two movie franchises and figured that’s a good enough reason to edit them together.

That seemed to be enough for French filmmaker Fabrice Mathieu, the creator of “Raiders Of The Lost Darth,” a mashup of (you guessed it) the opening scene from Raiders Of The Lost Ark and various aspects of the Star Wars franchise. The resulting six-minute short oscillates between convincingly cool and glaringly absurd

Is Life Actually a Prequel to Spider-Man Spin-Off Venom?

Is Life Actually a Prequel to Spider-Man Spin-Off Venom?
Yesterday, an eagle-eyed Reddit user spotted something very interesting in a recent TV spot for the upcoming sci-fi thriller Life. One seemingly random throwaway shot, featuring a number of New York City citizens looking up at something in the sky, was seemingly lifted from a shot that was originally filmed for Sony's 2007 superhero sequel Spider-Man 3, during a scene where Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man saves Bryce Dallas Howard's Gwen Stacy from being crushed by a crumbling building. While it's likely just a case of the studio using a random shot from their library to save money, this shot has also spawned a crazy fan theory that Life may actually be a prequel to the long discussed Venom spin-off.

This theory first surfaced on Reddit, claiming that Life could actually be a backdoor origin story for how the alien symbiote Venom come to Earth in the first place. Venom is actually featured in Spider-Man 3,

Whatever Happened to Meagan Good? I Miss Her

It’s not as if Meagan Good has fallen off the map. By no means am I saying that she’s missing, but I’d just like to point out that I need a little more Meagan Good in my life right now. The reality is that she’s been on two shows in 2015 and 2016 but this year she’s only slated to be in a TV movie so I’m getting a little worried. I think I’ve had a crush on Meagan Good ever since she did the movie You Got Served at the age of 23. Over the years she’s

Step Up holds up: 10 years on, it wins the teen movie dance battle

The film that introduced the world to Channing Tatum stands far above some of 2006’s more cringeworthy outputs, and it was even ahead of its time

The plan was not to write about how good Step Up is 10 years later, honestly, because the plan was to write about the idea that Step Up was part of an early-aughts wave of urban dance movies, wherein “urban” was a euphemism for “skimming off the surface of black culture to give edge to a movie about white people”. The early 2000s were a weird time in pop culture, when we celebrated a lot of trashy stuff that we would rip apart today: Justin Timberlake’s cornrow/bandana headband combo, the not-so latent homophobia in Superbad, the sexism percolating throughout Knocked Up.

But Step Up does not belong in that riff. Because, upon very close inspection on the occasion of this aluminum anniversary, Step Up is actually great.

Film Review: ‘Born to Dance’

Film Review: ‘Born to Dance’
Proof that Maori dancers can bust a move with the best of them, “Born to Dance” serves as an astonishing Kiwi choreography showcase, the biggest and by far more impressive of its kind to originate Down Under, as local star Tammy Davis — known in New Zealand as Munter of hit skein “Outrageous Fortune,” but more familiar abroad for bigscreen roles in “Whale Rider” and “Black Sheep” — makes his high-energy feature directing debut, following a pair of well-traveled shorts. Casting mostly real dancers and hip-hop personalities in roles that might have benefited from more acting experience, the film pits the country’s best dancers against one another for a fictive version of that title, though it’s the off-the-wall technique (from “Step Up All In” cast mate Parrish Goebel), not the boilerplate plotting, that will give this Kiwi sensation international legs.

10 alternate titles for 'Stonewall' based on its bizarre new poster
There's this Roland Emmerich movie "Stonewall" coming out about the riots at New York's Stonewall Inn in 1969 that paved the way for the Lgbt civil rights movement. We discussed earlier how the trailer's cloying feel seems disappointing. Now we have a poster to ogle. I'll be: It does not get better.   Now, now: I have not seen this film. I don't know how successfully it will defy our expectations and present an accurate picture of the uprising. But I did have to check multiple sources to make sure this poster wasn't a fraud. Look at it. Look at those ragtag, smiling kids. Is this a poster for a critical Lgbt moment or Six Flags? It's time to rename this movie. Here are the best ten options. 1. Step Up 4... Civil Rights 2. So You Think You Can Disturb the Peace 3. The Sandlot 3: We Play Ball Like a Girl 4. Xanadu 2:

South Park: The 25 most kickass episodes ever

South Park is about to begin its 18th season in the UK, and despite nearly two decades of episodes, it doesn't show any sign of getting 'lame', as Cartman might say.

Unlike other rival shows, Trey Parker and Matt Stone's cartoon has got better with age, and continues to push boundaries and stay relevant.

To celebrate its return, we have chosen our personal favourite 25 from its first 247 episodes.

25. Woodland Critter Christmas - Season 8

A thoroughly bizarre but memorable episode, in which Stan finds himself in the middle of the woods with a bunch of seemingly cute woodland animals. With an irritating voiceover narrating his every move, the critters turn out to be the most evil creatures known to man. Things are pretty f**ked right here, as he would say. Eventually, it is revealed that Cartman is the creator of such an awful story, and it's all just so

Fantastic Fest Review: 'Tokyo Tribe' is Cult Japanese Hip Hop Insanity

"Tokyo Tribe, never ever die!" Oh my goodness, this movie is totally insane, wacky, absurd and terrible in every way, but so so so awesome. Do you remember those kind of crazy cult films you'd find in the back of a video store, only one copy on VHS, that you'd lose your shit over discovering and would have to tell your friends about and the next thing you'd know the entire high school would be into this crazy film. Sion Sono's Tokyo Tribe is one of those films, the kind that is really bad in every way, but also insanely awesome in every way. Love it, hate it, it's a can't-believe-this-is-real experience that feels a bit like The Warriors meets You Got Served, even though it's really unlike anything else. Holy sh*t I love this movie, even as bad as it is. So what the hell is Tokyo Tribe

The Giver

The Giver

Directed by: Philip Noyce

Cast: Brenton Thwaites, Odeya Rush, Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgaard, Katie Holmes

Running Time: 1 hr 34 mins

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: August 15, 2014

Plot: A young man (Thwaites) living in a black-and-white future is shown colors by a piano-playing sage named The Giver (Bridges).

Who’S It For? Like your dystopias young and broody? Sure you do.

Overall

The proverbial ship, its path pushed by the passage of time, filled with passengers fighting for a seat during such a voyage, has sailed. In terms of The Giver, the old wooden vessel in this brilliant metaphor is the tale of the young chosen one rebelling against a messed up future, as one may call it. Though its source novel was written long before the films like The Hunger Games, Divergent, or even The Lego Movie, The Giver remains in the young adult sci-fi dystopic shadows of

The Guy Who Played Walt on Lost Is in a Band and They Have a Hit Song
It's true: Malcolm David Kelly, who once played the illusive Walt on Lost and the ill-fated Lil Saint from You Got Served, is now one half of Mkto. Tony Oller ("To") is the other half, and together they've got a song you might have already heard on the radio. "Classic" is insanely catchy, the type of song deserving of the Song of Summer title. What's it like having the power to infect the world with an earworm? We asked the boys of Mkto:I know “Classic” actually came out last summer, and you guys have been touring with it for a while. Does it feel like it’s gotten too old to perform? Are you over it yet? Malcolm: No, you never really get that feeling. Sometimes it feels like we’re performing it a lot, but it’s actually a good time. Every time we perform it and everybody is singing along,

Kevin Tancharoen Arms The Guns Of Christmas Past

Kevin Tancharoen Arms The Guns Of Christmas Past
He debuted with dance in the likes of You Got Served and the Fame remake, but Kevin Tancharoen moved to more violent subject matters with the Mortal Kombat digital series. It appears he’s still in a deadly mood, because he’s signed to direct a bullet-filled version of A Christmas Carol called The Guns Of Christmas Past.Andrew Hilton’s script is loosely inspired by Charles Dickens’ spook-some festive morality classic, but it flies off in very different directions. The plot finds a retired hit man – who, if you know anything about retired hit men in cinema, is not in for an easy time of it – returns home to Chicago on Christmas Eve to celebrate with family. No, wait… He’s there to avenge the death of a friend. Told you it wouldn’t go well.As part of his vengeful quest, he has to fight his way through

Review: No Vacancy

Vacancy, Joy Ride, Wrong Turn…what do these films collectively have in common? They all are somewhat responsible for No Vacancy, a film that relies heavily on its “written and directed by the director of You Got Served” selling point, which to be completely honest, pretty much lays it out on front street regarding what you’re in store for.

While the group of youngsters just trying to have fun angle has been done to death, with sometimes better delivery, what instantly lets viewers know the type of film that they’re getting, is the excessive amount of lens flares on Everything. The sun, the motel lights, even glasses, you would think J.J. Abrams’ post production crew had their hand in this one. If you can avert your eyes from the lens flares for at least a few moments, you might be able to follow the story, revolving around a group of lost youngsters,

Birthday Gallery: Harry Shum Jr. Turns 32

For the last ten years, Harry Shum Jr. has shown his gifts for acting, singing, and most extraordinarily, dance, starring in such films as You Got Served, Stomp The Yard, and Step Up 2 & 3, and moving on to his most famous role, as “Other Asian” Mike Chang on Glee.

Unfortunately, he was always underutilized during his time with the show, but still managed to stand out. He still makes occasional appearances, but has moved on to more film roles (he played Booboo Stewart‘s gay brother in White Frog), and shows us reminders of his incredible dancing ability.

Today is his 32nd birthday, so let’s pay tribute to one of our favorite triple threats.
