The latest video from Interpol’s El Pintor is directed by frontman Paul Banks himself. Banks uses the slow, dramatic head-bob “Twice As Hard” to soundtrack scenes of real-life boxers training at a New York gym called Mendez Boxing. Like the song itself, the video takes an effective idea and repeats it ad infinitum. Watch below.

Tommy Wiseau’s long-gestating sitcom The Neighbors—a.k.a. Tommy Wiseau’s The Neighbors or maybe Tommy Wiseau Presents The Neighbors—will have its first public screenings at New York’s Sunshine Cinema on September 26-27, alongside Wiseau’s disasterpiece feature film, The Room. The show has been in the works for a decade, with an insane trailer making the rounds for the past few years. Back in July, Wiseau launched a website for the show, featuring a bit more footage alongside a synopsis that might generously be called “complicated.” (See above.) But now he’s ready to unleash the show on the world alongside midnight screenings of The Room, which Wiseau has been cheerfully participating in for years. One of the show’s non-Wiseau producers told us that these screenings—no more have been announced yet—would be the only way to see The Neighbors for now. We ...
Still love this show.
In the mood to watch two aliens and a human verbally eviscerate some of the worst movies of all time? Yes, Mystery Science Theater 3000 is now available to stream online. Vimeo recently uploaded 80 episodes of the hilarious show and the company is still working on clearing rights for the remaining episodes to bring them online, too. Read more about Mystery Science Theater 3000 streaming below.
Variety broke the news of the MST3K streaming deal. According to their story, besides the 80 episodes that are on there now, at least a dozen new episodes are just waiting to be cleared for the service.
Unfortunately, the episodes aren’t free. You can purchase all 80 episodes for $300, which is a savings considering each episode is $2.99 to rent and $9.99 to purchase. In all, there are almost 200 total episodes of the cult comedy series.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 hit the air in 1988. Comedy Central most famously aired the show for seven seasons before it moved to the Sci-Fi Channel. It was then made into its own movie in 1996 before going off the air in 1999. The premise featured two robots and a man, played by different actors over the years, stranded on a space station and forced to watch terrible movies. Their silhouettes were superimposed on the screen as they wisecracked about how bad each film was.
Basically, it became a cult sensation because the characters did what friends do when they watch a bad movie: make fun of it. Odds are though, Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo were funnier than your friends.
At the moment, some episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 are available on certain streaming services but this is by far the most comprehensive collection yet online. Here’s the trailer from Vimeo, and you can click here to get all the episodes.
Will you be streaming Mystery Science Theater 3000?

Song is decent, but the band name is awesome.
The lyrics of Allo Darlin’s “Bright Eyes” do not directly reference Conor Oberst’s band, but there’s a touch of teenage Oberst’s spirit in Elizabeth Morris and Paul Rains’ jangly boy-girl serenade. Not that this is an emo-folk song or anything of that sort; like “Romance And Adventure” before it, “Bright Eyes” is twee with a skip in its step and abundant casually excellent guitar playing. The difference is that while Allo Darlin’s first We Come From the Same Place single was resolutely overcast, this one is the sound of sunshine peeking through the clouds. “I feel better hangin’ out with you” is about as plain as you can put it, and when you do simple this well, there’s no reason to complicate things. Listen below.

Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo by Keith’s Brydie
Following years of denials that he would return to the franchise, Paul Greengrass has shaken up expectation by entering talks for a new Jason Bourne movie with Matt Damon, Deadline reports. Greengrass had said as recently as last year that he’d gone as far as he could go with the no-longer-amnesiac Jason Bourne (hence naming his last movie The Bourne Ultimatum), but that conviction was apparently as steadfast as his camera work: Like a super spy who suddenly remembers he has the power to make easy money, Greengrass is not only confident that he can direct another installment, The Hollywood Reporter says this time he’s also ready to write the script. (“EXT. INDISCERNIBLE BLUR,” he types.)
And according to Deadline, Universal is so happy to have the original Bourne team back, it’s willing to fast-track The Bourne Addendum (or whatever) for the July 16, 2016 release originally ...
This weekend, a long-running Fox cartoon called The Simpsons took over L.A.’s Hollywood Bowl in a celebration of the show’s apparent immortality. Hosted by The Smurfs’ Hank Azaria, the orchestra-backed production featured appearances from “Weird Al,” Jon Lovitz, creator Matt Groening, former writer Conan O’Brien, and voice actors Yeardley Smith and Nancy Cartwright—who play Lisa and Bart, respectively. The Hollywood Reporter wrote up some of the show’s highlights, and it sounds like most of said highlights were—unsurprisingly—based on some of The Simpsons’ best musical moments.
Conan sang “The Monorail Song” he wrote for “Marge vs. the Monorail,” Smith and Cartwright sang the Mary Poppins parody song “Minimum Wage Nanny,” and Lovitz performed an homage to the late Phil Hartman by singing part of his Planet Of The Apes musical. All in all, it sounds like an amazing show that they’ll never ...

Mirrors, lenses and reflective surfaces are combined to arresting effect in this commercial for au Hikari, a Japanese high-speed optical ISP. The machine's optics work as one to reflect, focus, and diverge a single beam of light through a series of tasks, causing it to singe, melt and illuminate as it goes.

Fast food is a booming industry, not only in our country, but all over the planet. Now, you have fast food chains like McDonalds and Pizza Hut moving themselves to as many different locations as they can in the world. One thing they seem to notice is, there needs to be area specific food for wherever they are putting up a new chain, or the place just will not succeed.
This means, you have McDonalds in different countries serving things that they would never serve here whilst also making sure they still have some American standards available for their varied customers. While the above lobster roll may be familiar to some New Englanders and Canadians, that is not necessarily the case for every other location. Most chains have never carried it, and that is just one example of many. Heck, that example is mild. How about a pizza stuffed with barbecue sauce and cream cheese? Yeah, this gets pretty odd.
Mental Floss put together a cool list of 15 items you can get at other fast food places around the world. Some of the food is familiar, some of it, not so much. Burger King's pumpkin burger being a prime example of just how WTF some of this stuff gets. But remember the old saying: one man's yuck is another man's yum. Sorry, I just made that up, but it stays.

The original Ghostbusters trailer was a “commerical” with a 1-800 number that led to a recording of Bill Murray and Dan Akroyd. The number reportedly received 1,000 calls an hour, 24 hours a day, for 6 weeks straight. Source
With “Anaconda,” Nicki Minaj brought Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” back into the mainstream pop culture conversation, after it had been relegated to the world of wedding parties and high school dances for decades. In an interview with Billboard, Sir Mix-A-Lot revealed that he was reviving a collaborative project that he started in the ’90s with the Presidents Of The United States Of America. They used to record under the name Subset, but never had an official release beyond a few stray songs. “I have no illusions of grandeur and I don’t think I’m going to put out a record that [hits] charts, because hip-hop won’t allow that,” he said. “We did this record and it was crazy [but] we never put it out. I’m thinking about recording that.” In addition to that project, Sir Mix-A-Lot also said that he has a new single that will be coming out within the next few weeks.
By now, you’ve probably heard the news about the Haircut that Shook the World – Jack White’s new look, which makes him look even more like a demonically possessed traveling salesman (not necessarily a bad thing given his general steez). He’s deeply rocking it in his new video for “Would You Fight for My Love?,” which was conceptualized and created, apparently, in under 24 hours by Robert Hales, and stars White and Scout Pare-Phillips hanging out in a blue-toned bar that looks like something out of The Shining (actually Denver’s Oxford Hotel, so we’re close). Check it out.

Between this weekend’s The Drop and next month’s John Wick, handsome action stars snuggling adorable puppies could just be the next big movie trend. And just for the record, I would be totally okay with that.
Keanu Reeves leads John Wick as the title character, whose greatest joys in life are his sweet ride and his even sweeter dog. One day, some mean idiots led by
Alfie Allen decide to take away his things. That turns out to be a huge mistake, because John Wick is actually a retired hitman who knows exactly how to go about getting his revenge. The first John Wick trailer has just hit the web, and you can watch it after the jump.
IGN debuted the John Wick trailer.
When will movie thugs learn to research their victims before they target them? Like the bad guys in Taken, the villains in John Wick could have saved themselves a lot of trouble if they’d put even a tiny bit of effort into not pissing off men with a very particular set of skills. One would think Theon would already know this from the time he tried to take over Winterfell. Let’s just hope for his sake that this doesn’t end the same way that did.
In all, John Wick looks deeply silly, but in an entertaining way. Michael Nyqvist, Willem Dafoe, and Adrianne Palicki are among those who try to get to Wick before he gets to them, and Bridget Moynahan and Ian McShane also star. Chad Stahelski directed.
Here’s the John Wick poster. It shows Reeves’ necktie turning into a fuse because his last name is Wick and he’s about to explode, get it?
John Wick opens October 24.
From the producer of CLASH OF THE TITANS and THE TOWN comes a tale of adrenaline-fueled revenge and redemption. When a retired hit man is forced back into action by a sadistic young thug, he hunts down his adversaries with the skill and ruthlessness that made him an underworld legend.

Probably bullshit but for you iPhone guys may be worth a look.
As expected, would-be iPhone 6 owners are currently wading through a torrent of trade-in and upgrade offers. It's all very, very confusing. But AT&T is being clear about one thing: If you trade in an iPhone 4, 4S, 5, or 5C, you will get at least $200 credit towards a new device*.
You’ve probably heard stories for years about Bill Murray magically showing up at parties or karaoke bars or engagement photo shoots and behaving like a lovable oddball. Now, the national treasure is filling us in on some of his antics that could have easily slipped under the radar. Like the time he volunteered to drive a taxi so that the driver could get in his sax practice. It seems like the only place this guy won’t show up is in Ghostbusters 3.
He recounted to a Toronto Film Festival crowd of Bill Murray worshippers:
“I said, ‘When do you practice?’ He said, ‘I drive 14 hours a day.’ ” Murray then asked him, “Well, where’s your sax?” The driver replied, “In the trunk.” Murray told the cabbie, “Pull over and get in the back, I know how to drive a car.’ ”
“Not only did he play all the way to Sausalito, which is a long way, we stopped and got barbecue. He [wound up] playing in what some would call a sketchy, weird place in Oakland at 2:15 in the morning. I was like, ‘Relax, man, you’ve got the [bleeping] horn! We’re cool!’ And it was great and it made for a beautiful night!”
That is hands down way more interesting and magical than the time I met Jack Osbourne in a deli and said, “You’re Jack.” (Page Six)

SpaceX successfully launched, carrying the AsiaSat 6 satellite to a geosynchronous transfer orbit. The Falcon 9 launch was initially delayed due to concerns after a SpaceX test flight exploded in late August. The launch went perfectly, and communications are established with the satellite.
Last we left the proposed Samurai Cop sequel, all we knew was that star Matt Hannon was definitely alive and available. With that critical piece in place, pre-production on the movie has apparently started in earnest: Not only is Robert Z’dar now in, but according to producers, The Room’s Tommy Wiseau and The Crow star/noted eccentric Bai Ling have also joined the cast. Wiseau, Ling, and Z’dar are the newest additions to a previously reported and still-impossible-to-confirm cast list that rather inexplicably includes Seymour Cassell and a couple of retired porn stars.
Director Amir Shervan, the man who can be credited/blamed for most of Samurai Cop’s most hilarious/inept attributes, will not be returning for the sequel, mostly because he died in 2006. Gregory Hatanaka, a longtime film distributor who has produced his fair share of B-movie trash, will take over directing duties instead ...
