He studied to become a lawyer and worked as an architectural planner after graduating college but neither of these professions afforded him the opportunity to watch movies and TV for a living.

It's hell getting old. You're overworked, underpaid, get grey hairs, everything hurts, there's barely time for sex, you fall asleep on the couch watching 'Game of Thrones' and, unless you're George Clooney, you're just not cool anymore. You either hike up your pants and accept it, or you wage all out war. It's the latter that highlights the uproarious Seth Rogen and Zac Efron comedy 'Neighbors,' w

Quentin Tarantino to Direct ‘The Hateful Eight’…As a One-Time, Live Event
Quentin Tarantino famously shelved his upcoming project 'The Hateful Eight' after an early draft of the script leaked online (he would later sue the web site Gawker for publishing a download link).

New ‘Transformers 4′ Poster: On the Run From Really Big Robots
The 'Transformers' films have operated under director Michael Bay with one basic credo: "Giant F---ing Robots." (It's true! We actually have a cast and crew t-shirt with that printed on the back.) This new 'Transformers 4' poster certainly lives up to that motto as stars Mark Wahlberg and Nicola Peltz beat foot to avoid - what else? - a giant f---ing robot.
The Predator Coming to ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ as DLC
