You Can Buy a ‘Friends’-Themed Furniture Collection from Pottery Barn

You need to throw on your workout gear and run to Pottery Barn while flailing your arms like Rachel Green!

Why? Because this retailer will have merchandise from Friends!

The best part? The apothecary table!

The famous episode, “The One With The Apothecary Table,” shows Rachel purchasing said table for her apartment, which she shares with Phoebe. Monica warns her that Phoebe is against mass-produced products, so Rachel fibs and tells her friend that the new table was from a flea market. The entire episode is filled with Pottery Barn plugs, as Rachel goes nuts buying up anything Pottery Barn.

Things like the “ornamental Birdcage – Large,” a telescope, and more.

Though these products were not available at Pottery Barn then, they will be soon!

If you are an overly-crazed Friends fan, this is the perfect way to get your apartment to start looking like the show. It’s unclear exactly what will be sold (other than the table), but PopSugar.com says there will be “14 products ranging in price from $13 to $1,099, and the line has everything from decorative accessories to furniture and textiles.”

So why haven’t we been graced with these treasures of TV past before?

Well, Friends is celebrating the 25th anniversary of it’s start (it ran on NBC from 1994-2004). I suppose this is Pottery Barn’s way of tipping their hat to the famous show.

I think Phoebe would approve.

Could you be any more excited?

Take a Look at the Trailer for the Upcoming Tom Hanks Film About ‘Mister Rogers’

Fred Rogers (1928-2003) has been gone for 16 years now, but his memory and legacy is being kept alive by his legions of adoring fans. And now Hollywood is helping out as well.

Mister Rogers already got the documentary film treatment with 2018’s critically acclaimed Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, and now Tom Hanks will star as the iconic television host in the upcoming film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

The film is based on a 1998 article by Tom Junod for Esquire magazine. Junod’s article detailed the effect Rogers had on millions of fans (and Junod himself) because of his kindness and optimism.

From the reactions on social media, it looks like people are going to need a whole lot of Kleenex to get through this film.

Tom Hanks looks to be the perfect choice to play Fred Rogers, doesn’t he? A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood also stars Matthew Rhys, Chris Cooper, and Susan Kelechi Watson.

Check out the trailer for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

Fred Rogers hosted his famous television program from 1968-2001, and I think it’s pretty safe to say he made an enormous impact on people all over the world. Rogers’ home state of Pennsylvania even has a holiday to honor the man himself. 1-4-3 will now be celebrated every year on May 23 as a statewide day of kindness.

The film is set to open on November 22, 2019. As the person said in one of the tweets above, go ahead and take my money. NOW.

Mick Jagger’s 1971 wedding…

Mick Jagger’s 1971 wedding involved, among others: the guests being informed only a day before, the public civil ceremony being stormed by paparazzi, Jagger being accidentally locked out of the church, and Keith Richards laying passed out on the floor, reportedly in a Nazi uniform.

Here’s a Sneak Peek at the Trailer for ‘Top Gun: Maverick’

If you weren’t around for in 1986, it’s kind of hard to describe how popular Top Gun was, but trust me, it was HUGE. My older brother even entertained the idea of becoming a fighter pilot for about four days.

Like I said, it was HUGE.

Well, we’re all in luck again! Top Gun: Maverick is set to hit the big screen next summer and original stars Tom Cruise (Maverick) and Val Kilmer (Iceman) are reprising their roles. Joining them will be Jon Hamm, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller (who plays Goose’s son from the 1986 film), and Ed Harris. The original Top Gun was directed by the late Tony Scott, and this time around, Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy) is at the helm.

Here’s a sharp poster for the new film.

Concerning the action in the new film, Jon Hamm said, “We’re shooting the movie in, I think, 6K. So it’s incredibly hi-def. The aerial footage is mind-blowing. And it’s mostly practical. There’s not a lot of CG. Those guys are really up in planes and getting thrown around in multiple Gs.”

We don’t know a whole lot about the plot yet, but from the preview, it looks like it will be fully locked and loaded with action.

Top Gun: Maverick hits theaters on June 26, 2020. Check out the trailer below.

I don’t know about you, but I am excited about this one! Let’s hope that we get another love scene set to “Take My Breath Away.”

These 20 Iconic Movie Scenes Brought People to Tears

We’ve all cried at a movie at one point or another. My personal experiences usually have to do with animals in sad movie scenes. People…not so much.

A Reddit user asked, “Which movie scene brought you to tears?” and here are the moving responses.

Here come the waterworks.

1. Coco

“”The ending of Coco, when Mama Coco recognizes the song that Miguel is singing despite her dementia because her father used to play it when she was a kid. Wow okay, I’m getting emotional just thinking about it.””

2. Gladiator

“The whole last five minutes of Gladiator: “I will see you again my friend, but not yet… not yet.”

3. 12 Years a Slave

“12 Years A Slave, seeing his grown children after he escapes back to the north. Seeing his granddaughter brought me to tears like a blubbering idiot.”

4. Guardians of the Galaxy 2

“I don’t do crying, especially movies. They’re not real people. But when the Ravagers showed up for Yondu’s funeral, someone was cutting a helluva lot of onions in the theatre…”

5. The Truman Show

“Final scene in The Truman Show where he turns to the camera and says, ‘In case I don’t see ya! Good afternoon, good evening and goodnight.’”

6. Good Will Hunting

“I feel like this movie has lost its hype but re-watching it last week and seeing Robin Williams breaking Matt Damon down into tears is just such a powerful scene. 10/10 movie would and will watch again.”

7. Up

“My grandmother had just passed away after an emotional week of ups and downs in the hospital. My wife and I decided to go to the movies just to take our minds off from recent events. Up was the movie we went to see. Other than the not having kids part, it was like watching my grandparents on screen. I doubt there will ever be a scene in a movie that will hit me harder than that.”

8. The Green Mile

“The execution scene from The Green Mile, Michael Duncan Clarke was the first actor that ever made me cry.”

9. 50/50

“50/50 going into surgery. This movie is so looked-over, but it’s honestly probably the best performances of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen.”

10. Schindler’s List

“At the end of Schindler’s List, when he’s looking at his few possessions left, and thinks of how many more people he could have saved if he sold the car, or whatever.”

11. Toy Story 3

“Toy Story 3 when the gang accepts their presumed fate in the incinerator and all reach out for one another, the worst being when Woody finally gives in and takes Buzz’s hand. I always thought this part hit harder than Andy leaving after giving the toys to Bonnie, that always felt more bittersweet than anything.”

12. Interstellar

“Interstellar when he watches the videos of his kids aging 25 years in front of his eyes.”

13. The Land Before Time

“In the movie The Land Before Time….. When Little Foot’s mom dies….made me cry as a kid when It first came out in 1988…makes me cry now.”

14. Inside Out

“I watched that when I was 38 years old, and I cried like a little girl with a skinned knee. Like straight up ugly-face, snot-bubble, breath-hitching sobbed.

The lady I was seeing at the time not only didn’t cry, but didn’t understand why I did. I’m not saying that’s the reason we’re not together, but I’m not denying that it was a factor.”

15. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

“The beach running scene from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. After what that movie put me through, I just lost it then.”

16. Ghost

“At the end of Ghost, as I was wiping away tears, I saw my-brother-in-law hand my husband a dollar bill. ‘Told you she would be in tears by the end.’”

17. The Pursuit of Happyness

“The ending of The Pursuit of Happyness got me. When he got the job, I had held it together up until then but I just let it out. It just resonated so much with me because my parents really struggled as immigrants and worked very hard to give my siblings and me a better life. Great movie.”

18. Pan’s Labyrinth

“The ending of Pan’s Labyrinth made me ugly cry for about an hour. Then I was irrationally angry at Guillermo del Toro for years after. He wrote and directed it and it destroyed me. Damn it, I’m starting to cry just thinking about it.”

19. Titanic

“That scene in Titanic where the old couple is lying on their bed holding each other, they’ve lived a long life and have accepted that it’s now the end. Idk it gets me every time.”

20. My Girl

“The funeral scene from My Girl. Doesnt matter what part of the movie I walk in on, it’ll always make me start bawling.”

Sesame Street Characters Reenacted ‘Sabotage’ by the Beastie Boys. Take a Look.

When the Sabotage video hit the airwaves, it was a game-changer. Suddenly, the Beasties were back on top and firmly in the public consciousness like they hadn’t been in years.

The Sabotage video was directed by Spike Jonze and was a throwback to 1970s-style cop TV shows such as Starsky and Hutch and Baretta. It was a brilliant idea and executed perfectly. To be honest, music videos had become a little boring by the time the Sabotage video came out in 1994, and the Beastie Boys injected some fun and humor back into MTV, which seemed to be all doom and gloom with the explosion of grunge. Here’s a refresher.

I think people can argue that the Sabotage video set the stage for such later classic videos as Weezer’s Buddy Holly.

 

The Sesame street video was made by Mylo the Cat (aka Adam Schleichkorn) using footage from the 1985 Sesame Street film Follow That Bird. He’s previously gained fame for video mashups such as Barney the Dinosaur doing The Notorious B.I.G’s Get Money.

Is it silly? Yes. Is it goofy? Absolutely.

The mashup works well for these videos because, like the original video, there’s a lot of running around and people getting chased, this time it just happens to be Big Bird.

I think this is one of the better mashup videos I’ve ever seen, to be honest. Here’s the entire video for you to enjoy.

Oh, and, RIP MCA.
