Best and worst renditions of the national anthem

Saturday, Mar. 3 is National Anthem Day (you had this marked on your calendar, right?), which is as good of an excuse as any to revisit the most memorable renditions of "The Star-Spangled Banner" we've been treated/subjected to over the years. The best versions are often the most adventurous; alas, the same can be said of the biggest debacles. Here are 20 performances that filled...

The biggest age gaps between James Bond and the women who've loved him

This week Daniel Craig will turn 50 years old, meaning that he'll be 51 by the time the next film in the 'Bond' franchise comes out late next year. Very little is known about the upcoming film. What is almost a certainty, however, is that the actress cast to play James Bond's love interest will almost certainly be considerable younger than Craig. To support this claim, here's a look...

Movies and actors who didn't deserve their Razzies

From its humble beginnings in founder John J.B. Wilson's living room to its now 38th year, the Golden Raspberries are a mock award that "celebrates" the worst in film. Now as we know, bad is as subjective as good, but sometimes bad isn't that bad at all, so in honor of this year's Razzies, we take a look at 20 winners who didn't deserve to win, because there's always something worse.

New worst classics: The best so-bad-they're-good films of the past ten years

Every year, the Golden Raspberry Awards do a great job of playfully reminding us of the worst cinematic excrement to plop out of Hollywood. Sometimes they nominate big-time noisy Hollywood blockbusters, and sometimes they nominate lesser-seen but equally-derided fare. Often they nominate Michael Bay. Yet while 2017's "The Disaster Artist" helped introduce a whole new generation to...

Bands that moved on from their lead singer

After Stone Temple Pilots fired frontman Scott Weiland in 2013, STP faced the difficult decision of moving on without their lead singer, or finding the right voice to carry the torch for the band. They briefly found that voice in Chester Bennington before he decided to devote all of his time with his own band, Linkin Park. The tragic overdose of Weiland in late 2015 and then Bennington...

Rock bands that never shied away from politics

Rock and roll shook up the world in the 1950s as the sound of youthful rebellion, but in the early days it was all about sex and fast cars and just plain having a good time. It wasn't until the mid-1960s, basically around the time protest folkie Bob Dylan went electric, that this quintessentially American musical genre became the sound of political change. In time, the country's...

The best teen scream films

Being a teenager can be hell, especially when you have to deal with supernatural forces, vampires, witches, aliens, evil clowns, and just plain ol’ human murders. However, watching these events unfold on the big screen can be endlessly entertaining to audiences looking to be scared. With the highly acclaimed teen thriller “Thoroughbreds” set to hit theaters on March 9, we decided...

Television's 20 greatest dynamic duos

I don't think I'm blowing anyone's mind by saying that two is better than one. It takes two to make a thing go right, just as it takes two to tango. And it takes at least two people to play "Frog baseball," to have a proper roast of music videos, and of course, it takes two to work the drive-thru. Everything is just better with a friend – even if all they do is talking about "scoring...

Memorable final performances

When the black comedy "Thoroughbreds" hits theaters on March 9, 2018, it will bring to a close the agonizingly brief acting career of Anton Yelchin, who died in a freak automobile accident outside of his Studio City home in 2016. His tragic death is a sad reminder of other great performers who were taken from us far too soon. Due to the generally abrupt and unplanned nature of their...

Lessons we learned from 'Beavis and Butt-Head'

On March 8, 1993, “Beavis and Butt-Head” first premiered on MTV. It ran for over 200 episodes over the next five years, including a full-length movie, and had a brief 22-episode revival in 2011. Since then, Mike Judge has enjoyed wild success with “Office Space,” “King of the Hill,” and “Silicon Valley,” as well as the cult hit “Idiocracy,” a film that essentially imagines a future...

Our favorite weed comedies of all time

We won’t tell anyone if you put ranch on these 25 foods

The best careers of 'American Idol' alumni

"American Idol" is back, baby! Do you miss it? Well, it's OK if you don't, as it ended in 2016 due to massively declining ratings over its incredible, record-breaking run. Now it's being revived for 2018 with a whole new set of judges, and everyone's wondering whether or not this is going to produce a genuine new music superstar or flame out despite all of its good intentions.No...

Mike Judge built his legend on American simple-mindedness

Mike Judge is a genius.Whether it's the wage slaves of Initech depicted in "Office Space," the (now) uncomfortably prescient near-future of "Idiocracy" or the simple middle-aged men of Arlen, Texas featured in "King of the Hill," the simple, useful idiots of Mike Judge's oeuvre are presented in a way that's both more subversive and funnier than most of his contemporaries.But we're...

The King of Cockney Cool: The best of Michael Caine

Born on March 14, 1933 to a fish porter and a charwoman, Maurice Joseph Micklewhite, Jr. aka Michael Caine was the antithesis of the polished Shakespearian-trained thespians England put out into the world. He served for two years in the British Army, and then found his way to acting by picking up walk-on roles as a stage manager of a provincial repertory company. The Cockney Caine...

20 reboots that actually went right

Hollywood is often lazy. It looks at what works in the past, and it tries to replicate its success again (and, sometimes, again and again after that). Oftentimes, these attempts at rehashing the old fail miserably. But once in a while, a modern take on an old idea turns out pretty well. With the reboot of "Tomb Raider" set to hit theaters on March 16, here are 20 examples of reboots...

The best (of feeling the worst) of teen heartbreak

We all pine for the carefree days of high school from time to time, but if we're being honest with ourselves, the good old days weren't always so hot. The worst of it was the heartbreak.

How David Cronenberg, master of body horror, changed cinema

There was no shortage of violence and gore on movie screens in the mid-1970s. The meat grinder that was the Vietnam War was barely in the rearview, and filmmakers were still feeding off the fury and disillusionment that the brutally prolonged conflict had engendered. No genre expressed this disgust more vividly or viciously than horror. It was the time of MPAA-challenging provocations...
