Watch a Modern Take on 'Empire Strikes Back' Trailer

Posted By Kelly Woo on November 11, 2014
When Darth Vader tells Luke "I am your father" in "The Empire Strikes Back," it is a chilling, gut-wrenching moment that most "Star Wars" viewers never saw coming. Imagine if you did see it coming, though? Movie trailers these days give away almost the entire plot (including a lot of spoilers). So, what if "Empire Strikes Back" had a modern trailer? Would certain twists and turns be totally...

Box Office: How Did 'Dumb and Dumber To' Overpower 'Big Hero 6'?

Posted By Gary Susman on November 11, 2014
Poor Lloyd and Harry. The perpetual underachievers of the "Dumb and Dumber" movies have been underestimated by everyone.

Besides, last week's champ, "Big Hero 6," seemed unstoppable and poised for a...

'The Walking Dead' Season 5, Episode 6 Recap: We Ain't Ashes

Posted By Katie Roberts on November 11, 2014
This week's episode of "The Walking Dead," "Consumed," made the most of that imagery-evoking title, sprinkling smoke and fire throughout the hour in an effort to illustrate the characters' – namely Carol's – rebirth. But the episode wasn't quite content with the "show, don't tell" school of thought, offering multiple scenes of Daryl and Carol arguing about how much they may or may...

8 TV Curmudgeons We Can't Help But Love

Posted By Alana Altmann on November 11, 2014
On November 16th, 2004, one of TV's most beloved curmudgeons came into our lives. Yes, 10 years ago today, "House" premiered on Fox and the world fell head over heels for Hugh Laurie's Dr. Gregory House, despite all of his nasty quirks, sarcastic provocations, and downright unapologetic jerkiness. House is just one of TV's greatest grumps, but there have been a plenty of cranky, crabby, rude,...

Taylor Swift's a Scream Queen in This 'Blank Space' Video Remix

Posted By Jenni Miller on November 11, 2014
No one can hear you scream.... in "Blank Space"! This remix of Taylor Swift's music video into a trailer for a horror movie is perfect. We'd line up to see this as a feature-length film in a hot minute. Maybe as a triple feature with "Gone Girl" and "Possession," no? It's actually not too great a leap of imagination to see "Blank Space" as a short horror movie itself, given how many genre...
