Decades before the term Mixed Martial Arts or Mma even existed it was guys like Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, and a bit later Jean Claude Van Damme that got people interested in learning martial arts.   Their movies portrayed guys who knew the likes of Karate, Muay Thai, Jujitsu, Judo, and plenty of others as heroes who could take out bands of villains with their legs and fists.  Before Mma centers around the country existed, it was the dojo that you could find in a local shopping mall if you wanted to learn from the best.

So far the reviews for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales have been mixed.  Javier Bardem is still in promotional mode for the film he stars in alongside Johnny Depp, but Bardem is getting attention for another part he just landed.   He’s officially playing Frankenstein’s monster in Bride of Frankenstein. The folks at ScreenRant were lucky enough to get a few minutes with Bardem and ask about his long-rumored involvement, and although he stopped short of offering any real details, he was clear about his enthusiasm for the project—and even tossed in a self-deprecating quip. “I can

Roger Ailes Leaves Long Shadow at Fox With Complicated Legacy

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Even some of Roger Ailes’ closest friends and admirers admit that the man routinely described as “larger than life” has left a complicated legacy.

There’s no disputing that Ailes, who died May 18 at 77, turned Fox News Channel into a political and cultural force, generating outsize profits for Rupert Murdoch’s empire along the way. But his personal indiscretions and attitudes shaped in the “Mad Men” era of workplace culture proved to be his professional undoing. The state of Fox News today, 10 months after Ailes’ abrupt exit, reflects the essential conflict of its founder. He was undeniably one of the most influential, innovative and successful media mavens of the past 50 years. He was also the highest-ranking media executive to have been taken down by a sexual harassment lawsuit.

“It’s all so complicated. Everything here was and is … as he was,” longtime Fox News anchor Shepard Smith said of Ailes during an emotional on-air tribute. Smith »

Moore appeared in more official Bond pics than his friend Sean Connery over a longer period of time, and while Connery’s fans were fiercely loyal, polls showed that many others favored Moore’s lighter, more humorous take on 007.

James Corden is coming to Snapchat Shows.

The messaging app’s growing roster of TV-style short-form series will be joined by “James Corden’s Next James Corden,” a six-episode satire of reality-competition shows launching this fall featuring the late-night host himself.

“The line between your television screen, your computer and your phone has never been more blurred,” Corden told Variety.

Snapchat Shows: Inside the Plan to Reimagine TV for the Mobile Era

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Elisabeth Murdoch said goodbye to the family business in the wake of the News Corp. phone-hacking scandal in 2014, there was considerable anticipation regarding her next career move. The safe bet was that she’d find something to do in the television industry, where she had cranked out global hit series formats from “MasterChef” to “Big Brother” for Shine Group, which she’d sold to her father for $675 million.

But when Murdoch resurfaced in 2015, she focused her programming savvy not on TV but on a single digital platform: Snapchat.

Her new venture, Vertical Networks, has produced only for the Venice, Calif.-based messaging app, and includes a trio of so-called Snapchat Shows, a short-form video format exclusive to the Snapchat platform. As Murdoch sees it, the seismic shift a new generation of younger viewers is making from TV to mobile can no longer be ignored.

Ever since the 80s Transformers toys have been a staple in both children’s and adult lives.   The mere thought of a vehicle or other type of machine that can magically transform into another type of machine (usually an awesome looking robot) puts us into a world we never thought was possible.  As children we imagine all these amazing scenarios and pit our transformers either against each other or whatever forces of evil are lurking out there.   But for one Russian stuntman and his father, dreams weren’t enough.  They wanted their transformer to be real, and also be equipped with machine
