I know we keep saying that “this is the last Harlem Shake video to need to see” five videos ago, but seriously, this the last Harlem Shake video you need to see. Trust me, we desperately want this awful internet fad to go away and what better way to say “sayonara” than with fire? I’m not going to lie because it feels like the Harlem Shake videos are the White Walkers (or Twilight vampires. Whatever floats your boat) of the internet; they don’t die until you set it on fire.
Watch till the very end and you’ll soon understand what I mean.
While watching a good movie with friends is nice way to spend time, there’s nothing like a bad movie night to really make some magical friendship moments. No one ever wants to kill the vibe with their talking while watching a good movie, but everyone will want to hear your vitriolic thoughts as the dumbest plot point happens out of nowhere. Just in case you’re hoping to set up your own bad movie night, here are 5 bad movies that are so bad but so good that you need to watch them. Now.
5. Mortal Kombat
When it first came out in 1995, Mortal Kombat was the shit. Looking back, you can tell just how bad the graphics are and how terribly melodramatic the characters are. But who cares? Scorpio had snake-like blades coming out from his hands. Badass.
4. Spice World
As a kid growing up with a Spice Girls poster on my wall, THIS IS A CLASSIC. I really didn’t understand why no one wanted to watch Spice World with me during my first year of university so I could use it as source material for a Spice Girls essay I was working on (I got an A in case you were wondering). While the scene where the girls meet the aliens randomly in the woods was awful, the shot of the bus jumping over the Tower Bridge is a cinematic masterpiece. Girl Power!
3. Any Twilight Movie
To mark the 30th anniversary of the Steven Spielberg classic Jurassic Park, the dinosaur movie will return to theatres for an exclusive 3D release. Will the park’s t-rex and velociraptor look scary in 3D? Probably. But to help keep those nightmares at bay, here are the 10 best Jurassic Park-related bits and gags the internet has to offer.
1. Theme Song (Melodica Cover)
3. Beatles dressed as the characters
4. Dino Photobooth
5. This Jeff Goldblum painting
This dog isn’t team Jacob OR team Edward. She is team “turn this movie off.” Watch this dog react badly to Twilight being on the screen. Not a big Kristen Stewart fan I see? A plus to the movie makers commentary, “It’s a bad movie, I know.” I wonder what the dogs reaction would be if she was watching Taylor Lautner’s shirtless scene instead of the “transformation into a wolf,” scene. Thanks for your movie review puppy.
As someone who basically lives at the movie theatre, this year certainly didn’t disappoint me in terms of movies. From The Hunger Games to The Amazing Spiderman to The Avengers, plenty of film franchises racked up some serious cash at the box office.
While the Academy favours artistic movies over franchises, I personally think some of these films are worthy of Oscar nominations because they are SO GOOD.
Here are five movies I highly suggest you to watch as soon as you can.
From the start, this film had plenty of potential. Having separate films surrounding the main characters, such as Thor, Iron Man and Captain America, what could be more awesome than putting all of them together to fight the evils of Loki?
Unlike the disappointment that was Fantastic Four, this film had everything going for it. From the pacing and the action, to the chemistry between the characters and Robert Downey Jr.’s cool humour, Joss Whedon couldn’t have been a better director/writer for this movie.
I’m saying this as someone who doesn’t normally read comic books (tragic, I know). But considering how this film kept me on my toes from beginning to end, The Avengers could arguably be one of the year’s best movies.
Jimmy Fallon is no stranger to poking fun at Twilight star Robert Pattinson. He created an entire mini-series of rants in which he pretends to be RPattz complaining about the most mind numbing things. The best part? He puts on a pretty convincing British accent with a head of greasy hair, to boot. In Jimmy Fallon’s latest installment of Robert Is Bothered, “Robert Pattinson” hangs from a tree ranting about his hatred for Thanksgiving. Not only is Robert confused by the random date of the holiday, but he also disagrees with the selection of food usually eaten during the festivities. I thought he was a vampire… vampires shouldn’t be this passionate about human food. Am I right?
In all seriousness, Jimmy Fallon does a pretty impressive job of impersonating the angsty Twilight star. I wonder if the real RPattz feels this passionately about turkey day.
(Yes you do, Robert).

The Brotherhood of Twihards is so powerful it can inspire unexpected friendships between two former rivals. Take these two gangsters for instance, who are caught pointing guns at each other when Twilight is suddenly brought into the conversation (because nothing’s tougher than vampire romances).
Upon learning they’re both Team Edward, they decide the only option is to be BFFs forever and ever just like Bella and Edward will be together for eternity. Although they never stop pointing guns at each other, their bond is so Notebook-strong they do everything together.
The comedycentral sketch stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele as lovestruck Twihards.

BadLipReading took on more of The Twilight Saga, dubbing over the usually awkward pauses and monosyllabic dialogue in New Moon with more interesting topics. In this version, both Jacob and Edward are sick — Jacob from porpoise meat and Edward from being so damn drunk. There’s also talk of dying rabbits and shaving.
Part two of the Twilight Saga, New Moon features werewolves, shirtless dudes, terrible acting and even more AWKWARD stares. If you’re planning to see the new Breaking Dawn but don’t know what to expect, this Honest Trailer by screenjunkies should prepare you.

The ending of Twilight may be bittersweet for fans, but the one person who seems happy about it is none other than Mr. Edward Cullen himself.
RPatz has never shied away from making a couple of jokes about being a vampire heartthrob. From biting a baby to being the unhealthy obsession of many girls (or maybe guys), it’s got to be embarrassing to be asked about the Twilight series all the time.
But after watching this video, I think my crush on RPatz just got even bigger.
Personally, I don’t think I can blame Pattinson for masking his dislike of the series through his self-deprecating humour. Because deep down (like really deep), I know he’s grateful of his success.
Having had the good opportunity to see him in person (please, don’t ask why…), I know that he will graciously sign autographs and take photos with fans (especially the ones who have waited over 30 hours with him).
Now if that isn’t dedication, I don’t know what is.
“Joe Goes” comedian took on Twilight fans camped outside Nokia Theatre for the premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2 and did all sorts of blasphemous stuff, like ripping the novel and calling the movie horrible.
“Spoiler alert, it sucks,” he told one fan about the film. While some of the fans reacted with gaping mouths and sharp intakes of breath, one girl gave him a noogie. But that reaction is only expected when a Twilight hater starts talking about Dune and Lord of the Rings.
The Matt Friedman-directed clip might make you worry for the next generation. While I love Twilight as much as the next person, these fans take it to the next level! Still, we all have to fangirl for something, right? The movie will be in theatres on Nov. 16.

Movie Clips TRAILERS re-edited scenes from the Twilight Saga into a parody of movie outtakes. While most bloopers (like The Avengers) are filled with laughter, practical jokes and flubbed lines, the hypothetical Twilight outtakes are just filled with awkward silences, bad acting and lovers’ quarrels.
The best fake outtakes go to Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, who show very little emotion towards each other yet can’t keep their hands off each other. It’s no wonder why Robert Pattinson storms off at the end. How is he supposed to work with such unprofessionals?

Before she fell hard for vampires, Kristen Stewart racked up tons of cute cameos and supporting film roles as a child actor. With The Twilight Saga’s Breaking Dawn Part 2 coming out this Friday, we figured it’s about time to look at K-Stew’s evolution from child actress to Twilight superstar.
She has a showbiz family
Kristen’s no stranger to Hollywood, considering she was raised in L.A. She was born on April 9, 1990 to a TV producing dad and script supervising mom. At first, Kristen wanted to work behind the scenes like her parents, but we’re happy she ended up on screen.
She practiced being famous
With a huge smile and even bigger shades, Kristen couldn’t be more of a diva in this shot from when she was about three. She even rehearsed being a star: “I always practiced my autograph because I loved pens,” Kristen said. “I’d write my name on everything.”
First Hollywood movie
After a year of auditions, nine-year-old K-Stew made her big-budget movie debut in The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas in 2000. Watch out for the the cutie tossing rings in the pink dress! A whole four seconds…

Shy Robert Pattinson was unusually zany on Jimmy Kimmel last night (Monday) and blogger Perez Hilton thinks it’s because he was a little tipsy. Hilton theorizes he was feeling nervous because his interview was airing at the same time as Kristen Stewart’s appearance on Jay Leno. Considering Kimmel equips his green rooms with bottles of vodka we think he might be right!
Sitting cross-legged on his chair (to hide his ugly socks of course), Pattinson admitted to having a little bit of vodka backstage. The vodka just seems to have fuelled Pattinson’s normally charming self. Later in the interview, he talked about being a loud kisser, sky-diving in Australia and of course, the new Twilight movie Breaking Dawn Part 2!!

Things would have been totally awkward if Robert Pattinson found out Kristen Stewart cheated on him in the midst of filming Breaking Dawn. Imagine looking into your co-actor’s eyes during a love scene, but instead of serenading them with the cheesy script all you can think about is tripping them with a wad of tape or lawn mowering Rupert Sander’s balls.
Funny or Die put a lot of thought into what would have happened and unfortunately they don’t see Robert Pattinson as being a complete professional on set. Awkward turtle.

BAMF Girls Club by Comediva is quickly becoming one of my new favourite shows. It stars kickass female characters like Harry Potter’s Hermione Granger, The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen and The Walking Dead’s Michonne… And then of course there’s Twilight’s Bella, but I don’t know if she’s earned the strong, female role model label (sorry Bella).
Anyway, two new episodes are finally out. The first involves the ladies setting down house rules and unsuccessfully trying to elect a leader. The second guest stars Game of Thrones’ Arya Stark, who got herself into trouble and is forced to spend a day with Hermione as punishment. Though personally, I’d love to spend a day with the witch!

I’m actually a bit disappointed with Kristen Stewart’s cover shoot with British Vogue. Throughout her career, Stewart has perfected the scowl we’ve come to love/hate in her movies and photo ops — it’s somewhere between Posh Spice’s mysterious glare and Tumblr’s sad meme.
Her cover for British Vogue is no exception. She stares at the camera in porcelain foundation the makeup artist surely pounded on her.
I don’t mean to sound cruel. I just think it would have been the perfect opportunity for Kristen and the magazine to say no matter what life throws at you, you can ultimately say “f*ck off, I’m going to go on with my life.”
They knew the cover to be scrutinized by the media (I mean, what are we doing here?) so I feel it’s a bit of a missed opportunity. Instead of strategically projecting Bella the vampire or Kristen the lost soul they could have sent a larger message by covering the magazine with her smiling. Just because she had a huge public fallout after cheating with Robert Pattinson doesn’t mean she’s a woman destroyed. It’s kind of like when your mom says “smile, don’t let them get to you.”
In the end, I suppose the photos somewhat express her character, which is a win. She told Vogue: “People expect it to be easy because there you are, out there, doing the thing that you want and making lots of money out of it. But, you know, I’m not that smooth. I can get clumsy around certain people. Like if I were to sit down and think, ‘OK, I’m really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?’ I wouldn’t know who that person would be!”
What do you think of the photos?
Another photo from the spread:
Listen, I’m a huge fan of The Twilight Saga too but you have to admit the acting isn’t stellar. In fact, some scenes are so uncomfortable to watch, it seems like someone forced Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson to wear mole-hair corsets under their clothes.
Their lack of body movements and uncomfortable facial expressions is one reason why dubbing over their dialogue is so HILARZ. BadLipReading had actors read over scenes of the movie with a script that has NOTHING to do with the plot. The editing is so seamless that if I hadn’t seen Twilight already I wouldn’t have questioned Bella and Edward’s conversations about eating cake and spitting… though I probably would have questioned the writer’s sanity.
In the past, they’ve worked their magic on Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber, brushing on topics like Asian babies and being a “dumb girl.”

We first got excited about BAMF Girl’s Club when we saw the trailer back in July, depicting fictional heroines (and Bella) being awkward on the Comediva reality show. Episode one features Katniss, Bella, Hermione and zombie slayer Michonne, among others.
In this episode, the ladies move into their new home and drama starts right away when Lisbeth Sander attempts to make friends with Hermione. Unfortunately Lisbeth thinks “making friends” means researching all of Hermione’s sordid past actions and reciting them to her (will this come back to haunt the witch?).
Katniss Everdeen is a reality show pro and we’ll have to watch closely to see who she strategically chooses for her alliance (my bet is on Michonne and Buffy).
Then there’s Bella who pretty much gets upset by everything. Team Jacob will surely be shedding tears along with her at the end.

Robert Pattinson must have expected the obligatory, intrusive breakup questions when he appeared on Jon Stewart last night but according to The Daily Show host everything is less scary when you have the ultimate breakup remedy on hand — a carton of ice cream and a spoon.
The Twilight and Cosmopolis star joked about not knowing how to deal with slightly intimidating questions about his scandalous breakup with Kristen Stewart, who
“had a moment of indiscretion” cheated on him with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. ”God, I thought we already prepared this. I had a joke prepared!” he told Stewart. “I was all set up and ready to go.”
You have to give Pattinson some credit. For an actor who’s already quite
reserved awkward in interviews it must be tough for him to handle such personal questions.
Luckily Stewart had some helpful breakup advice for RPatz: “last time I had a bad breakup, Ben & Jerry’s got me through some of the tougher times. So I thought you and I could bond over this and talk about ‘boy, you are better off, kick her to the curb.”
