I’m sorry. I understand that these assignments are supposed to help us prepare for the SAT, but man… I’m sorry. I like Shakespeare and everything, but this? This is just ridiculous: “This is the excellent foppery of the world, that, when we are sick in fortune, often the surfeit of our own behaviour, we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and the stars….”

10 Reasons Why Holly Hunter Is a Badass

Article: 10 Reasons Why Holly Hunter Is a Badass

Let’s just all agree: Holly Hunter is a badass. She’s won Emmys, a Golden Globe and — not to mention the hearts of fans. She’s given us comedy, drama, grit, sex appeal and intelligence in an astounding variety of roles. And that voice — oh, that voice. And of course Hunter filled an unforgettable role in the SundanceTV original series TOP OF THE LAKE. Let’s take a look at some of Hunter’s most remarkable roles in a career full of them.

1. TOP OF THE LAKE (2013)
In TOP OF THE LAKE, Hunter reunites with her Piano director, Jane Campion. “Jane asking me to do it was a big attraction,” Hunter told Vanity Fair about the role of GJ, a revered figure — whose long, straight gray hair oddly resembles Campion’s own — running a camp for women who are looking to escape and seek redemption. Eerie and transcendent, Hunter gives a mesmerizing performance.

That Good Sh*t: 10 Highly Rated Stoner Movies

Article: That Good Sh*t: 10 Highly Rated Stoner Movies

Stoners might never want to harsh the mellow, but stoner comedies tend to be rollicking adventures. In honor of Neal Brennan, host of SundanceTV’s new series THE APPROVAL MATRIX and one of the minds behind Half Baked and Chappelle’s Show, here are 10 highly-rated stoner movies that offer a nice cinematic buzz—and a few wild rides.

10. How High
This big screen vehicle for rappers Method Man and Redman has a premise that only makes sense if you’re high — the pair get into Harvard after the ghost of their recently departed friend gives them the answers to the entrance exam. Oh, and they summon their friend’s ghost after smoking his ashes. Good luck explaining the appeal of this one to a sober person. But for stoners, it’s a comedic masterpiece.

9. Pineapple Express
Seth Rogen is an affable stoner process server who gets mixed up in a crime caper involving a particularly strong strain of Mary Jane. His rapport with James Franco’s Saul, a laidback pothead dealer inspired by Brad Pitt’s character from True Romance, puts this film squarely in the mold of classic buddy stoner comedies. Only with a lot more gunfire, of course.

Article: “Law & Order” Had Many Spin-Offs But Are Any Competitors? Vote Now!

Creator Dick Wolf sure knew he had a good thing going with the original Law & Order series. After the show had been on air for nine seasons, he introduced Law & Order: Special Victims Unit which made household names out of Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni. And that was just the beginning. Over the next few years, Wolf added Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2001), Law & Order: Trial by Jury (2005) and Law & Order: LA (2010). There was even a movie spin-off: Exiled starring a Law & Order original, Chris Noth. But what entry in the franchise is your favorite? Did anything prove better than the original?

6 Questions with “RECTIFY” Star Jake Austin Walker (Jared Talbot)

Article: 6 Questions with “RECTIFY” Star Jake Austin Walker (Jared Talbot)

Jake Austin Walker, who plays Daniel’s spunky, sympathetic younger half-brother Jared Talbot, talks about the family dynamics on the show (and behind the scenes), his own experience with bullying and when we can hear his next single (he’s really good!).

Q: Jared’s fascination with his half-brother’s case is touching, but it also freaks out Daniel (Aden Young). Did you really have a file of information about the case that you studied?

A: Oh, yeah–on the day that Aden shot that scene, they asked me about the folder and what I wanted in it; it’s real. Jared researched it, like a comic book or a movie he just can’t get enough of. Personally I think he raided the basement of their house and got all the old newspaper clippings from the case that his mother had hidden to try to put the bad memories away.

Q: Does having siblings in real life help you tap into the dynamics with your half-siblings on Rectify?
