But in 2016, not everyone watching the Super Bowl is going to have cable. Once again, the biggest game of the year will be streaming on all of your devices — here’s how to watch it on your phone, tablet or computer this Sunday. More →
On Wednesday, we shared a video that showed us what it would be like if movies ended as soon as one of the characters said the title. It was genuinely funny, but it got us thinking — what are some of the best endings in movie history? Naturally, that led us straight to another YouTube video, this one from CineFix, focusing on the best closing shots ever filmed.
Netflix is one of the few companies out there that actually deserves the “game-changer” label the press loves to throw around these days. No, a startup that’s trying to create an Uber for cats is not a game-changer (…or is it?). But a company that completely upended the entertainment industry by popularizing a new means of consuming content? Yes, that’s a game-changer.
The media streaming giant has indeed changed the game in a number of ways, and one was accomplished in tandem with another entertainment game-changer: the DVR. Instead of sitting down at the same time each week to watch a show, people now enjoy TV on their own time. When shows first air though, making viewers wait to watch new episodes has historically helped generate buzz — so why does Netflix release all of its episodes of a new season at once? More →
Quentin Tarantino’s latest film has been fairly divisive, but one thing that no one can argue about it how much inspiration it takes from Western films of old. Tarantino himself would be the first to tell you that The Hateful Eight wouldn’t have been possible without the movies that came before it — and he did exactly that in an interview with Première last month.
No matter how hardcore of a film buff you consider yourself to be, it’s highly unlikely that you managed to see every movie that was nominated for an Oscar during its theatrical run last year.

Remember back in the late 1990s when recording companies kept insisting that everyone had to buy an entire album just to get the one or two songs they actually wanted? That didn’t work out so well for them after Napster and other music sharing services made it impossible for them to force consumers to buy CDs. The TV industry is facing a similar situation right now and, like the music industry before it, it’s crawling into a shell and hoping technological progress just goes away. More →
Regardless of any other movies or TV shows he appears in, actor Matt LeBlanc will forever be Joey Tribbiani to us. And the fact that LeBlanc turned Joey into such a lovable and memorable character on Friends should be enough to make you watch anything else the actor might appear in – and he wasn’t bad in Episodes either, which got him a Golden Globe in 2011.
So with all that in mind, we can’t help but be thrilled to hear that LeBlanc has been confirmed as the newest co-host of the hit show Top Gear. More →
It’s a hip-hop feud that’s almost too ridiculous to believe: One of the most successful and talented Wu-Tang alums versus the world’s most hated former pharmaceutical CEO. However, the beef between Ghostface Killah and Martin “Pharma Bro” Shkreli is very real. Per NME, Shkreli appeared on radio station Power 105’s The Breakfast Club this week and said that he would “smack [Ghostface Killah] right in the face” if he were there right now. More →
Over the past few weeks, Netflix has been dominating headlines with a wide assortment of announcements and acquisitions, but even as the popular online streaming service grows exponentially larger than it has in years past, its staunchest competition yet has been gearing up to steal eyeballs away in 2016.

Many times, movies feature their own titles somewhere in the dialogue. But what would these movies be like if they just stopped dead in their tracks a second after someone said the entire title out loud? A video posted by YouTuber Chris Huebs tries to answer this question by showing scenes from famous movies that cut right to the end credits after a character says the title. More →
By the end of 2016, there will be more Netflix original series than anyone could possibly hope to keep track of. From dramas to comedies to documentaries to shows for kids, the mountain of content never stops growing, which is why you might get some use out of a list of the top rated shows on the streaming service.
We already gave you a list of our personal favorite shows and movies being added to Netflix in February, but here are the top 20 shows the service has ever produced.
