This guy is going to collect every VHS copy of 'Speed' in the world (also, he's taller)

Have you ever loved a movie so much that you just had to own every single copy of it? More specifically, have you ever had such a targeted and specific love for a movie that you had to own every single copy of it on VHS? Because Ryan Beitz has.

If you don’t recognize the name, allow me to formally introduce you to the guy who has made it his goal to collect every single VHS copy of Speed and then create his own Speed bus. And in case you’re wondering, yes. He’s taller than you. (Get it?)

As of right now, Beitz owns more than 500 copies of the Keanu Reeves-Sandra Bullock hit on VHS, and he’s not stopping there. However, his drive has less to do with a love of the film and more to do with life, quantity, Freud, Miley Cyrus, and life again. READ FULL STORY

A Peeps movie might be in the works, and we've got a few ideas

Peeps: You either love them or you hate them. Unless, of course, you’ve never had them, which should probably be a crime.

But in case you don’t know, the Easter-themed candy consists of a marshmallow that’s covered in colored sugar crystals and most often formed into the shape of either a chick or a bunny. We know, based solely on that description, it seems obvious that this classic candy should star in a Hollywood movie, but up to now, it’s never been done. However, that might change!

According to Deadline, Adam Rifkin has optioned film and TV rights to the fancy marshmallow treats for what could be a “Lego Movie-esque family epic set the night before a Peeps diorama contest, when a wayward Peep gets misplaced and must adventure through the fantasy lands of different-themed dioramas before the contest’s judging begins.” Ah yes, the tale of the lost Peep. It is a classic, I must admit. But what if this movie went another direction? What other things would make for a good Peep movie? We’ve got some ideas: READ FULL STORY

Hear all the F-words uttered in 'Wolf of Wall Street' -- VIDEO

Screen Junkies, what tricksters! The YouTube channel put out a video Tuesday touting it was a supercut of just the “F” words in The Wolf of Wall Street. And by “F” words, they meant literally all the words that begin with “F” said in the film — save the actual F-word.

The video’s premise is a play on the number of times “f—” is uttered in the film, an unclear number that is somewhere in the 500s.

Check out the video from Screen Junkies — the same people who make the always-hilarious Honest Trailers – below: READ FULL STORY

China made an aircraft-carrier short film that is basically their 'Top Gun'

Leader-for-the-Dream.jpg

So let’s say you’re a major global superpower, and you just got your first aircraft carrier. What do you do next?

If you’re China, you commission a six-minute sizzle reel showing off your totally sweet ship, set to pop music, with lots of sun-dappled cinematography of badass planes and the ripped pilots who fly them. Thus: “Leading the Dream,” a video which cuts between naval maneuvers and pop-music interludes featuring Tibetan singer Rong Zhong Er Jia. READ FULL STORY

Miss America Nina Davuluri sticks up for suspended high school student

A teenage boy in York, Penn. faced the ultimate rejection when he asked Miss America winner Nina Davuluri to prom. He didn’t get the girl – and his high school suspended him for even asking her. Ouch.

Davuluri, who won the 2014 Miss America crown this past September, went to Central York High School April 17 to give a presentation. That’s when the bold Patrick Farves gifted her a flower and asked her to the dance.

Whoopi Golberg pens love letter to her vaporizer

Whoopi Goldberg is in love, guys. But not with a human – with her vaporizer pen.

The EGOT winner is now writing for The Cannabist (a publication all about, well, guess). In her first piece, she explains how her trusty vaporizer pen has helped her deal with the pain of glaucoma. Goldberg’s daughter gave her the instrument – and that’s when her love affair with Sippy (yes, “her” name is Sippy) was born.

Josh Charles on 'Inside Amy Schumer' gives us unfounded hope for Will Gardner -- VIDEO

Everyone stop panicking, because we’ve found Will Gardner! He isn’t dead after all! He’s simply having a bit of a mid-life crisis, guys, and it’s OK. I have a plan to get him back to his rightful home on The Good Wife.

In a segment titled “The Foodroom” on Inside Amy Schumer, we find Will struggling with his new career choice. As Amy tells him in the clip, he’s damaged goods, and we all know why. Clearly, he was mistaken for dead and then forced to leave Chicago (and Alicia) behind. Plus, he was obviously forced to change his name to J.J.

Now, he’s stuck in an unhappy relationship with Amy Schumer while he works as a manager at a fast food restaurant and tries to relive his glory days. He even walks around giving inspirational speeches like he’s still working a courtroom. It breaks my heart.

Here’s some perspective for you: Old Will had a nice apartment, a comfortable bed — right Alicia? — and spent his days fighting for justice. The new Will has a bassist as a roommate, sleeps on a futon, and spends his days fighting for obesity. But one thing we can hold onto: He still knows how to clear a desk counter!

Chupacabra saves Guillermo in Kimmel's last 'Scandal' spoof -- VIDEO

Thought Scandal couldn’t get any crazier? Well, Jimmy Kimmel aired the final segment of his telenovela Scandal spoof on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! – complete with a chupacabra appearance.

In this dramatic finale, Kimmel interrupts a conversation between Kerry Washington and Guillermo Rodriguez to point a gun at Rodriguez’s head — only for a chupacabra to run up behind the unsuspecting Kimmel and attack him. Afterwards, Washington and Rodriguez reflect on how weird the whole chupacabra thing was. As it turns out, it wasn’t actually a chupacabra — because apparently, even Escandalo has its limits.

Every 'Scandal' reference made on 'Trophy Wife'

On Tuesday night’s Trophy Wife, Diane (Marcia Gay Harden) found herself channeling Olivia Pope in order to help Kate (Malin Ackerman) deal with a PTA problem.

EW had a sneak peek of the episode earlier this week, but even we couldn’t have predicted all the Scandal goodness peppered throughout the half-hour. So Wednesday morning, we decided to do a breakdown of every single reference.

It’s pretty safe to say the show’s homage to Olivia Pope and Associates was handled perfectly. READ FULL STORY

Pop Culture Pet Peeve: Underwater kisses really aren't that romantic

Movies and television make a lot of things look really romantic. When I was young and impressionable, pop culture taught me that kissing in the rain was about 100 times better than kissing in any other weather, and that you didn’t properly ride a Ferris wheel unless you were making out with somebody during it. Additional lessons included the appeal of the “up-against-a-wall” kiss and the shirt rip, all of which I enjoy watching and don’t have an issue with. However, there is one “romantic” gesture I’d like to address: The underwater kiss is not nearly as great as it is portrayed to be. READ FULL STORY
