Jimmy Fallon tries, fails to out-Travolta John Travolta

Jimmy Fallon tries, fails to out-Travolta John Travolta

John Travolta’s played many roles, nearly all of which send him way the hell over the top. You can see Danny Zuko’s hair-combing, greaser antics just as clearly as Vincent Vega’s “Elvis-man” ways. Luckily for Jimmy Fallon , he’s a pretty good impressionist, and did pretty well in acting out some Travolta classics on the Tonight Show. Travolta, of course, was right there with him, adding a...

Area 51 raid now a festival called AlienStock that's bound to become this generation's Woodstock

Area 51 raid now a festival called AlienStock that's bound to become this generation's Woodstock

If you thought that plan to “storm” Area 51 was a load of crap that stemmed from a shitposting event on Facebook, you’re...sort of correct? There will be no storming, but there will be a festival in its stead. It’s a sign of the times, really, that the 50th anniversary of the most iconic festival of all time couldn’t get off the ground , but that an irony-fueled event that was meme’d into...

Here's what Pinocchio would be as a horror film, as if a reanimated doll wasn't scary enough

Here's what Pinocchio would be as a horror film, as if a reanimated doll wasn't scary enough

Pinocchio could easily be creepy as hell. A childless woodworker makes a puppet and wishes he were real, only to wake up and see that that doll had become animated. Can you imagine a real-life Toy Story situation? You’d run out of the house like Sid did. Roberto Benigni’s adaptation was creepy enough, but what if you twisted the movie into a full-fledged horror film?

That’s what

Henry Golding's audition tape to become a Malaysian travel host is delightfully Fieri-esque

Henry Golding's audition tape to become a Malaysian travel host is delightfully Fieri-esque

Henry Golding is a drop-dead gorgeous actor who starred in one of the biggest hits of 2018, Crazy Rich Asians . From the looks of him and his A-list, G.I. Joe-starring ass , you probably wouldn’t be able to guess that he was once a travel host in Malaysia. What makes this bit of trivia even better is that his audition tape for the gig exists, and it owes more than a little to the style of one...

Hugh Grant says Paddington 2 is his best movie, so don't tell him otherwise

Hugh Grant says Paddington 2 is his best movie, so don't tell him otherwise

Movies for children can be hell, but Paddington and Paddington 2 are different. These movies are clever, have a lovable protagonist, and, per our own Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, “never betray the sweet-tempered worldview of its source material.” Hugh Grant, who starred in the sequel, apparently agrees, as he now wants to set the record straight that, out of all of his movies, Paddington 2 was the...

Watch T-Pain have a sloppy lightsaber fight in downtown New York City

You never know what you’re going to come across on a day in New York City. Something you may not have expected? A lightsaber fight. And not just any duel, but one that involves world-famous auto-tune rapper T-Pain (who, it should be noted, is a magnificent singer). The now-viral video starts off with a seemingly heated argument that turns into a brawl. The crowd sounds concerned, but it’s...

Zendaya just can't live down her old, embarrassing Instagram photos

Zendaya just can't live down her old, embarrassing Instagram photos

Zendaya grew up on Disney Channel and has since given us one of the best songs from The Greatest Showman and a memorable turn as MJ in Spider-Man: Far From Home and its sequel. She now stars in HBO’s saucy Euphoria , which just wrapped its intense first season. What you might not know, though, is that she used to post fire shots of her equally intense outfits on her Instagram, and her fans...

Iron Man's snap set to Black Sabbath's "Iron Man" is as epic as you'd think

Iron Man's snap set to Black Sabbath's "Iron Man" is as epic as you'd think

[Spoilers for Avengers: Endgame.]

You know what was actually inevitable, Thanos? Using Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” to make a Tony Stark scene cooler than it already was. That’s what someone on Reddit (via Twitter) did, and it’s about damn time. The scene it was edited over fits the song like a gauntlet glove: Endgame’s climax. Right when Thanos thinks he’s won, Tony Stark flies up with his...

It's "Baby Shark," but emo and filled with lyrics about death

It's "Baby Shark," but emo and filled with lyrics about death

If listening to “Baby Shark” makes you think not of babies and sharks but rather your impending death, then this cover of the popular kids song is for you. Sure, “Baby Shark” might have been a bop for a hot second, but now the song that’s way too easy for babies to sing along to has become nails on a chalkboard for any caregiver. YouTube channel Going Spaceward—a.k.a. musician David...

Dakota Johnson is also mourning her tooth gap

Dakota Johnson is also mourning her tooth gap

Celebrities deserve their privacy too, especially when faced with loss. That’s why everyone should just calm down aboutDakota Johnson’s missing tooth gap. Is it impossible not to miss if you’re used to her signature gap? Yes. Is it a little unnerving, like if someone shaved off an eyebrow or got bangs without telling you? Maybe a little bit, yeah. But enough is enough. The woman...

Watch as thousands of happy Pikachus dance across this Japanese city

Watch as thousands of happy Pikachus dance across this Japanese city

Pikachu as voiced by Ryan Reynolds is pretty good, but you know what screams “party”? Hundreds of Pikachu overrunning a city, dancing and just being their cute selves. Now that’s a good time, and it’s exactly what’s consuming the Japanese city of Yokohama this week, according to Sora News 24. On Yokohama’s website, they report that over 2,000 of these Pokémon (plus Eevee!) will parade and...

This vlog of a guy who crashed his plane in the woods and started filming is a found footage movie waiting to happen

This vlog of a guy who crashed his plane in the woods and started filming is a found footage movie waiting to happen

Any type of automotive or aircraft accident can be anyone’s worst nightmare, especially if you crash in the middle of nowhere . That’s the unfortunate reality that pilot Matt Lehtinen had to face when he crashed his small plane in the woods of Quebec, somehow getting a tree trunk straight through the side of his aircraft. It would only be natural for him to have freaked the hell...

All hail Cher Horowitz, queen of persuasion

All hail Cher Horowitz, queen of persuasion

“And in conclusion, may I please remind you that it does not say ‘RSVP’ on the Statue of Liberty.” And with these words, Cher Horowitz, master of debate, came into her own. Alicia Silverstone is stupendous in her role as queen of deliberation, and it’s a damn shame that the character doesn’t pop to the top of your head when conjuring up the world’s “strong argument makers.” Video essayists...

Watch Selena Gomez get absurdly excited about ABC's Shark Tank

Watch Selena Gomez get absurdly excited about ABC's Shark Tank

Celebrities are not above having television obsessions, too, and Selena Gomez can definitely relate. She’s wholeheartedly on the fandom train for Shark Tank,  and just freaked out about getting a birthday gift that involves the entrepreneurial ABC reality show. For her birthday, which was on July 22, her friends showed her a video that includes different clips from The Office, Friends, and...

You know what makes a good, sexy villain? Jawlines

You know what makes a good, sexy villain? Jawlines

Villains tend to oscillate between gross and super alluring, with hardly an in-between. And all the sexy bad guys out there—yes, Gaston, that’s you—happen to have one thing in common: Jaws! Not the shark (or the Bond villain), but jawlines. As Gianluca Russo pointed out for GQ, there’s an abundance of good-looking villains who make menacing behavior look so attractive , and that’s due in no...

Since the creators won't, Seth Rogen is here to answer your Game of Thrones questions

Since the creators won't, Seth Rogen is here to answer your Game of Thrones questions

While David Benioff and D.B. Weiss haven’t responded to your issues with the final season of Game of Thrones, or, for that matter, their decision to bail  on a scheduled appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con, you know who will take your questions? Seth Rogen, that’s who.

You’ve heard the grumblings and you know the anger all too well, as do D&D, so it makes sense that the writers didn’t want...

Here's an argument for Mysterio being the MCU's most powerful supervillain

Here's an argument for Mysterio being the MCU's most powerful supervillain

[Spoilers for Spider-Man: Far From Home .]

Quentin Beck played a good game for most of the newest Spider-Man film, but his dastardly plans did eventually come to light. You might have sat there wondering how could Peter be so stupid to give him EDITH, but as this video essay by ScreenCrush outlines, being able to work right under Parker’s nose is a feat not many have accomplished. And the...

Valkyrie wants to find her queen and fans are really hoping it's Captain Marvel

Valkyrie wants to find her queen and fans are really hoping it's Captain Marvel

San Diego Comic Con is usually pretty good for the Marvel sect, but it was really good this year, especially for fans of Thor: Ragnarok. Taika Waititi, who breathed new life into the Thor films, will direct Thor: Love and Thunder, which will find Natalie Portman returning as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor . When Tessa Thompson, who played Valkyrie in Ragnarok, had the mic, she said as king of New...
