JibJab mocks 2014 in its latest year-in-review video

As they do each year, the puckish animators over at JibJab have skewered the events of the past 12 months. JibJab has now been in the “year-in-review” game for a decade, and still its signature ensemble jigs (~1:32) are good for a laugh. We should all strive for such consistency.

Watch 'Mishaps In Space': A supercut of intergalactic uh-ohs from movie history

The tagline of 1979’s Alien was “In space no one can hear you scream.” It’s grabby, though not entirely accurate: Film history abounds with instances of galactic hollering, often about things gone awry. To cap a year that added Guardians of the Galaxy, Interstellar, and, why not, the Force Awakens trailer (call it a placeholder) to the space movie canon, we worked with supercut maestro Jonathan Keogh to stitch together the most memorable examples of malfunctions in the cosmos.

See Michael C. Hall sing 'Angry Inch' from 'Hedwig' -- exclusive

Even out of costume, Michael C. Hall can still embody the titular “internationally ignored song stylist” of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Case in point: His recent wig-less performance of the song “Angry Inch” at The Hills NYC.

Hall was on hand at the club for a Road Recovery benefit concert that paid tribute to the late Don Hill himself. The space where he performed is the new incarnation of a venue called Don Hill’s, where Hedwig was originally born as part of the club’s weekly SqueezeBox party. Hall, who is currently playing Hedwig on Broadway, performed the song alongside co-star Lena Hall (who won a Tony for her performance as Yitzhak), Hedwig composer/lyricist/co-creator Stephen Trask, and Miriam Shor, the original Yitzhak.

Mel Brooks chimes in on 'The Interview' debacle

Mel Brooks has directed some controversial comedies during his legendary career, so he understands how Seth Rogen and James Franco might be feeling now that The Interview has been pulled from its Dec. 25 release date.

In their comedy—which was the cause of a gigantic cyberattack on Sony—two TV journalists assassinate North Korean leader-for-life Kim Jong-un. In The Producers, Brooks put Adolf Hitler in ice skates and built a ridiculous Broadway musical around his notoriety. Of course, as Brooks told Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday night, “I waited ’til Hitler was dead,” he said. “I don’t know how crazy [North Korea is], so I’m going to ask you to stop talking about it.” READ FULL STORY
