SNL‘s David Pumpkins Makes Every Scary Movie Even Scarier

Any questions?!

While last week’s episode of Saturday Night Live premiered to positive reviews, one sketch that caught on (to the surprise of many) was “Haunted Elevator”, in which Tom Hanks played the bizarre yet impeccably dressed David S. Pumpkins–complete with backup b-boy skeletons. It was a relatively simple bit at its core, but somehow the combination […]

Because sometimes you just need to know dad's there for you, slugger.

It's the crossover we didn't even comprehend until now.

While Hanks' Pixar connection to Ellen DeGeneres wasn't necessarily at the forefront of everyone's minds when Hanks came on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss his latest film Sully, the two eventually sat down to wax nostalgic about the recording process over at Pixar--and then proceeded to have a conversation, in character, as their respective Pixar roles Woody and Dory.

Review: Bridge of Spies Is a Polished but Flat Movie

3 out of 5 stars.

The overwhelming sense the Cold War had of this being a time of the great unknown fills stories with intimate drama, and some of the true stories that came out around these events, when we seemed to be on the verge all-out nuclear war, are truly fascinating. Francis Gary Powers' story is a somewhat known part of history, but Bridge of Spies focuses on “the real hero” of the negotiation to get him out of Russia after his airplane was shot down: attorney James Donovan.

Thor, Gale, Meryl Streep, and Tom Hanks Star In the Epic, The Groundbreaking… Bitman Begins

the internet is serious business

Jimmy Kimmel, as is his wont, took to his late night show to have some post-Oscar fun. This year he enlisted the help of celebrities to dramatize that most enduring, most highbrow of subjects: The Internet meme. There’s David After Dentist (starring Joseph Gordon Levitt), Ain’t nobody got time for that (with Queen Latifah), and …I don’t want to ruin it, but Gary Oldman is there. But Bitman Begins is our favorite, because superheroes. Hit the jump for a behind-the-scenes video in which Meryl Streep talks working with the Hemsworth brothers. Update: YouTube appears to be giving some people trouble. Sorry if you're affected. Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon.

That movie is still flawless though, don't try to argue.

It's easy to forget, in our world of smartphones and YouTube and Twitter, that the internet has not always been so ubiquitous. Just 15 years ago, back in December of 1998 (when Google was only two months old) Warner Brothers released the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan classic You've Got Mail - and a website to go with it. And it's still there.
