Welcome back to the Yelling Game, and now it’s time to celebrate one of the Kings of Yelling, Jim Carrey!

Why You Absolutely Must Experience the Spectacular Stomp

In January 2018, Stomp’s incredible 15-year run will end its London show. It’s been part of London’s West End since it opened at the Vaudeville Theatre in 2002. Right now, the permanent London cast is performing at the Ambassador’s Theatre: Stomp is famous for its creative work with found percussion.

Why Patrick Swayze’s “Bodhi” is the Coolest Movie Character of All-Time

Bodhi might be one of the most coolest movie characters of all time and it’s largely due to how well Patrick Swayze portrayed him Point Break. I’ve watched this movie countless times and it never seems to get old, even if I’ve seen it multiple times in week-long period. Something about the guy is just pure despite his penchant for robbing banks and living on the edge. The character was hypnotizing in a way, he’d suck you into his world without even trying and make you believe that his lifestyle was a thing of pure zen and could be questioned,

Damon Lindelof on Why We Need a New ‘Watchmen’ Now: ‘What We Think About Superheroes is Wrong’

HBO has yet to officially green light a “Watchmen” TV adaptation, but Damon Lindelof has been hard at work on the series for more than a month. Chronicled with sly references and clever comparisons on the showrunner’s Instagram account, the series — which received a pilot order from the premium cable network in September — has already generated a lot of buzz.

On Saturday afternoon, Lindelof spoke publicly about the project for the first time. He took part in a panel at Vulture Fest along with “The Good Place” creator Mike Schur and was asked by Vulture’s West Coast Editor Josef Adalian why he decided to follow-up his critically acclaimed series “The Leftovers” with a comic book adaptation.

Prefacing his point with his memory of the original graphic novel, Lindelof said, “Watchmen was dangerous.”

“The reason I’m doing this is because these are dangerous times and we need dangerous shows,

Yet Another Compilation of Some of Skeletor’s Best Insults

It’s been so long since I actually watched He-Man that I forgot just how often Skeletor insulted the guys around him. That’s pretty bold for someone that’s basically a talking skull with a very high-pitched voice. Honestly if his minions were any sharper they probably would have figured out they could turn on him a very opportune time and been rid of him a lot quicker. Of course that would have meant that they would have needed another evil genius and master tactician to step in and lead them, since none of them were all the bright really except for

At the “Stranger Things: Inside the Upside Down” panel at Vulture Festival in Los Angeles on Saturday, the cast and crew of the Netflix series were on hand to reveal behind-the-scenes info from Season 2 and tease what might lie ahead.

In particular, brothers Matt and Ross Duffer revealed that Kali (Linnea Berthelsen) will most likely return for Season 3. “It would feel weird that we would’n’t resolve that storyline,” said Matt Duffer. “Chances are high that she comes back.”

Ross Duffer added, “We’re in very early days of Season 3… That’s not an official announcement.”

In the second season, “Chapter 7: The Lost Sister” was one of the most divisive episodes among fans and critics alike because it was a standalone adventure that took place outside of the action of Hawkins, Indiana. Even IndieWire’s

Back when Mike Schur was writing for Saturday Night Live–a gig that ran from 1997-2004–he says he became aware of some issues with Kevin Spacey’s behavior when the actor hosted the show. “If you think everybody knew about Louis (C.K.), everybody knew about Kevin Spacey,” Schur said, speaking on a panel with Damon Lindelof at the Vulture Festival in Los Angeles on Saturday. “I remember very distinctly being like, he’s hitting on the pages and he's hitting on the young men…
