Matthew Broderick Is Prince Charming In The Strangest Cinderella Of All

Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella was pleasingly silly, and boasted a completely insane cast. But it just can't compete with this 1985 version. See for yourself: That's Matthew Broderick, pre-Ferris Bueller, as Prince Charming. Plus Flashdance's Jennifer Beals as Cinderella, and All in the Family's Jean Stapleton as the… » 3/20/15 9:00pm 3/20/15 9:00pm

The French Remake Of Hot Tub Time Machine Has A Lot More Motor Scooters

Just imagine if Hot Tub Time Machine was more sophisticated and European, and less... I don't know what, crass and American. Yes? Then you would have something like BIS, which borrows the basic idea of HTTM, but with no hot tub. And a lot more riding around on motor scooters. » 2/20/15 9:00pm 2/20/15 9:00pm

Did you know that Mel Brooks co-wrote an Archy and Mehitabel musical? I didn't, until after I wrote about the Don Marquis books about the cockroach and cat the other day.

Shaun Of The Dead Outtake Features Simon Pegg As John Lennon

This is so silly I can hardly stand it: An outtake from Shaun of the Dead, in which Simon Pegg and Peter Serafinowicz pretend to be John Lennon and Paul McCartney (instead of Shaun and Pete). This may be old footage, but it's new to me – and really, who can't get on board with Simon Pegg corpsing all over the place? » 1/31/15 10:29am 1/31/15 10:29am

Jim Rockford Warned Us About Google And Facebook Back In 1978

Why didn't we listen? The fourth season of The Rockford Files, arguably the greatest television show of all time, features a "futuristic" storyline about a terrible threat.

There'll Never Be Another Space TV Show Like Far Out Space Nuts

Back in the day, space opera on television could get pretty crazy. You had heroes who weren't just your standard intrepid space explorers, and stories that were willing to go completely bonkers.

The Gender-Swapped Queen Kong Is Basically The Most Ridiculous Movie

Ray Fay gets dressed up in a pink boa and shiny pants and fed to Queen Kong, who falls in love with him. Then the giant ape fights a T-rex for the man she loves, in this completely bonkers clip from the movie Queen Kong.

Long Before Batman Vs. Superman, We Had The Great Amazons Vs. Supermen
