Because You're So Terrific, Showtime's Got The First Episode Of 'Ray Donovan' For You FOR FREE

Just click the link to the article, then hit play. We spoil you. Do you know what George Clooney's Michael Clayton would be like if he solved interesting people's problems? He'd be Ray Donovan, Showtime's ethically-agnostic celebrity fixer. What's a celebrity fixer? Why, it's whatever you would like it to be. Just kidding. You don't get to decide that. The producers of the show do. So watch the first episode to see how he goes about this fascinating line of work without stepping on any toes. (Note: I'm sure he does step on people's toes. Metaphorically.)


Internet Completely Baffles 1994 Bryant Gumbel

This clip from "The Today Show" in 1994, where Bryant Gumbel doesn't know what crazy things like "internet" and "@" symbol mean, is like watching the beginning of time unfold. To me, last year's internet -- The Double Rainbow Guy, The Trololo Guy, The Evil Clown Rappers Who Hate Magnets -- feels like ancient history. So this clip from "The Today Show" in 1994, where Bryant Gumbel doesn't know what crazy things like "internet" and "@" symbol mean, is like watching the beginning of time unfold. A few highlights: - Katie Couric and bright orange Bryant Gumbel can't agree on how "@" should read. Turns out the well-dressed Oompa Loompa was right. - "What is internet anyway," wonders Gumbel. All you need to know is that it's coming and Hamsters will dance on it soon enough. - "What, do you write to it, like mail?" Oh, Mr. Gumbel... of course you write to it. The internet is powered entirely by human letters. - "Computer billboard..." (?) I remember information super highway, global eVillage and magical data supermarket, but not computer billboard. The internet would be way cooler if it was one giant poster for True Lies.


Anyone Else Got A Bad Feeling About This Supercut Video?

See, that's what all the characters in this video say. Duh. It's always fun to see countless uses of a movie trope laid end-to-end, to prove to us just how frequently films go back to the same well of cliches. This time around, a Copon Films supercut gives us a look at every time a character informs the audience or other characters that they've "got a bad feeling about this." Most of the time, the shit goes sideways and they were right to have a bad feeling. Life is tough that way. That's one thing Hollywood gets right. The futility of existence. I'm rambling at this point. Watch the video. I've got a good feeling that you'll like it. (You see what I did there.) (Laughing Squid)


'Little Fockers' International Trailer Coins Godfocker Phrase

Early test screening reaction. Universal Pictures has dropped a new international trailer for Little Fockers. The boner stabbings from the U.S. trailer have been replaced with references to The Godfather and Jaws, and of course, vomiting. So this movie has Viagra jokes, puke jokes, overused film references jokes, bleeding all over people jokes, and Jessica Alba. One out of five ain't bad. Still no sign of Dustin Hoffman shoe-horned in to up the zany antics. Maybe after viewing this trailer he'll agree to a pity cameo. Check out the trailer after the jump...
