Is this all legal? Probably fucking not; despite parody fair use, there's likely an issue with actually using the Who's the Boss theme song. But it is very much worth watching:

Is Jack Huston the Next Actor To Briefly Be Rumored for 'The Crow'?

Though the tragic loss of Bradley Cooper left many unsure if anyone could ever be rumored to fill the role again, the Crow may yet rise anew--this time as rumored to be played by Jack Huston. According to Deadline, the Boardwalk Empire star is succeeding Cooper, Channing Tatum, Mark Wahlberg, James McAvoy, Tom Hiddleston, Alexander Skarsgard, and Luke Evans in being blogged about as frontrunner for the lead in Relativity Media's The Crow reboot. Still, though the film is scheduled to go into production this spring, it's yet said it's "not sure Huston will make the deal." It's just hard so hard to find someone willing to take on a role made so iconic by Bradley Cooper almost filling it.

Richard Linklater Finds Next Project, Wonders Where Bernadette Went

Realizing he does not have another 12 years of footage documenting the human maturation process, Boyhood director Richard Linklater has moved on to something else altogether. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Linklater is in talks with Annapurna Pictures to direct an adaptation of Where'd You Go, Bernadette, Maria Semple's 2012 comic novel about an agoraphobic architect and mother that goes missing. Should negotiations work out, it is expected that Linklater will definitely not win an Academy Award for this. I mean, if you can spend a dozen years shooting one of the most ambitious film undertakings ever and not get one, this sure isn't going to do it.

Adam Savage Built the Most Accurate 'The Shining' Hedge Maze Model, and He'll Show You How He Did That

"Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition" is a traveling exhibit touring the world with a collection of iconic Kubrick film memorabilia that includes rare photographs, scripts, actual props and costumery, special effects pieces, and, as noted by Adam Savage, an Overlook Hotel maze model replica that is sort of shit. Or rather, that was sort of shit.

Now, thanks to Savage, it's pretty much as accurate as is possible, because the exhibit's curators have now tossed out their crummy, erroneous miniature fake hedge maze in favor of a new one of Savage's making--one that the Mythbusters host claims is nearly identical to the one Jack Nicholson gazes across before deciding to chop up Shelley Duvall.

Want to see how he made that? Well, now you can, because Tested has released a 24-minute video documenting the labor-intensive process from start to finish. Watch and feel like a fool for how flawed your own hedge maze model recreations have always been.
