What you could do with 100 percent of your brain: A supercut

10-percent-of-the-brain.jpg

Even though it makes up a major plot point (actually pretty much the plot) of Lucy, the myth that you only use 10 percent of your brain has been pretty thoroughly debunked.

But for whatever reason, mostly because Hollywood doesn’t really need to pay attention to science, this pseudo-science, with varying numbers tacked on, still appears throughout film and television. The possible outcomes of using the other 90 percent, however, differ between cases. There are the standard examples, like Lucy and Limitless, which promise intelligence-related superpowers. Others, like Seinfeld and Honey I Shrunk the Kids (the TV version, natch), just promise intelligence. And some, like My Stepmother Is An Alien and Flight of the Navigator, take the conceit in a whole new direction.

Best-of-the-Worst-Got-Talent-Supercut-02.jpg

The Simon Cowell-produced Britain’s Got Talent launched in 2007; in the seven years since, the show has birthed spin-offs in more than 50 countries. As illustrated by this EW compilation, which features acts from such far-flung places as Kazakhstan, Czech Republic, China, and Australia, the shows all employ a very liberal interpretation of the phrase “Has Got Talent”.

'Grey's Anatomy': Watch Cristina Yang dance it out one last time in our supercut

There aren’t enough words (or dance moves) in the world to describe Grey’s Anatomy‘s Cristina Yang. She’s one of the most interesting and complex characters to ever hit the small screen, and this week, she will spend her final hour in Seattle during Grey’s Anatomy’s season 10 finale.

That being said, there is one thing that can sum up how Cristina Yang works through things. Sure, she cries. Yes, she drinks. But when in doubt, she dances it out. Most of the time she has Meredith by her side, but Cristina’s never one to shy away from a solo dance party. So in honor of 10 years worth of hair flipping, pelvic thrusting, and all around gyrating, we’ve created a supercut of Cristina’s best dancing moments.

Watch celebs do their best Matthew McConaughey impersonation -- VIDEO

Tatum-McConaughey-clip.jpg

Matthew McConaughey is known for many things: His voice, his catchphrases, his abs, and most recently, his McConaissance. But over the years, other celebs have taken the opportunity to impersonate the one-of-a-kind drawl that McConaughey takes with him everywhere he goes.

From Matt Damon to Kate Hudson, we’ve rounded up some of the best McConaughey impersonations. Watch our supercut below: READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Diaries': Say goodbye to Katherine Pierce by reliving some of her best moments -- VIDEO

It’s official, Vampire Diaries fans. The evil doppelganger we fell in love with in season 1 has left the building. Literally — she was dragged out of the church (seemingly to hell).

And as dramatic and Katherine-esque as that exit was, we will forever miss her coy little smile, her witty remarks, and of course, that walk. So to honor the fallen Katerina Petrova, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite oh-so-Katherine moments from seasons 1 through 5 for one last look at the first woman who stole (and then broke) the hearts of both Salvatore brothers.

'House of Cards': All of Frank's best asides in one handy video

Get on Frank Underwood’s bad side, and he might just brutally murder you. If you’re lucky, though, he’ll simply respond with a catty aside to a camera you can’t see — which, in its own way, is just as harmful. Maybe. (Wait, no, it isn’t at all.)

Anyhow: If you’re yearning to see a version of House of Cards that excises all the boring political intrigue and visits to superhackers and long shots of people staring, smolderingly, as they plot their revenge, you’ve come to the right place. Our latest supercut is nothing but Cards at its best — that is, Frank breaking the fourth wall and making like a bitchy southern belle who’s just emerged from a particularly taxing Junior League meeting. He’s sort of like the Dowager Countess of Washington, D.C., except the Dowager Countess stages fewer suicides. READ FULL STORY

Watch Seth Cohen and Blair Waldorf fall in love, get married in our 'Gossip Girl'/'O.C.' mash-up -- VIDEO

Blair Waldorf Cohen? We suppose it could’ve happened. After all, Seth Cohen did always want to live on the East Coast, so what was to stop him from moving to the Big Apple to pursue a comic book career after graduating from RISD? And with Summer off trying to change the world, the two could’ve understandably grown apart.

And then there’s Blair and Chuck, who were no strangers to breaking up. Can you imagine those two trying to negotiate a divorce settlement? We could imagine why Blair might need a caring shoulder to cry on. And with Dan now married to Serena, it’s not unrealistic that she turned to another curly-haired artsy hunk.

No matter your feelings on the “reality” of any of this, the love story of The O.C.‘s Seth Cohen and Gossip Girl‘s Blair Waldorf has been a hot topic ever since actors Adam Brody and Leighton Meester started dating and, most recently, tied the knot. But instead of continuing to paint pictures in your head, we’ve put together a supercut of their love story, ending in holy matrimony.
