Exclusive Supercut: Robert De Niro Loses His Shit

By

Two-time Oscar winner (and seven-time nominee) Robert De Niro turns 70 years old tomorrow, a bit of a shock for those who still think of him as the wry young spark plug of Taxi Driver and Mean Streets. Throughout his nearly 50-year career, De Niro has distinguished himself for his dedication, immersion, and versatility — and most of all for his intensity. And since there’s nothing more enjoyable than an actor blowing his top, we sifted through over 30 De Niro pictures to put together this montage of Bobby D going off the deep end.

Exclusive Supercut: John Goodman Loses His Shit

By

The great John Goodman, star of stage, film, and television, turns 61 years old today, so hats off to the man who warmed our hearts on Roseanne and explained nihilism to us in The Big Lebowski. And though Mr. Goodman is a skilled and versatile actor, equally adept at slapstick and pathos, there is one specific talent that he’s particularly notable for. Like some of our other favorite actors, Goodman is especially compelling when he’s blowing his top. After the jump, a few of his most memorable bouts of bellowing, screaming, and generally going insane from 18 films and television shows.

Exclusive Supercut: The Worst Movie Dads Ever

By

Father’s Day is this Sunday, so you know what that means: time for a quick survey of horrifying cinematic parenting.

Exclusive Supercut: All The ‘Arrested Development’ “Chicken” Dances

By

Arrested Development fans are busy counting down the hours until Season 4 premieres this Sunday at midnight on Netflix, and here at Flavorwire, we’re no different. So, we’re passing the time by declaring this Arrested Development Week, all leading up to a Recap-a-thon on Sunday, when our own Jason Bailey will review the whole season, episode by episode. Click here to follow our coverage.

It began with a throwaway joke on the first season episode “Staff Infection,” with G.O.B. accusing Buster of being a chicken, and proceeding to imitate… well, not a chicken, but some sort of animal that clucks and claps. It then became one of Arrested Development’s best running jokes, with Lindsay, Lucille, and George Sr. each providing their own variation, none of them all that similar to a chicken. Here’s our supercut of all of them—along with our hope that we’ll see more variations (how’s about one from Buster?) in season four.

Flavorwire Exclusive: The Ultimate Ann Veal “Her?” Supercut

By

Arrested Development fans are busy counting down the hours until Season 4 premieres this Sunday at midnight on Netflix, and here at Flavorwire, we’re no different. So, we’re passing the time by declaring this Arrested Development Week, all leading up to a Recap-a-thon on Sunday, when our own Jason Bailey will review the whole season, episode by episode. Click here to follow our coverage.

In Arrested Development‘s Season 1 finale, “Let ‘Em Eat Cake,” a flat-voiced young woman approaches George Michael Bluth at the banana stand. This was the first appearance of Ann Veal, played in that episode by Alessandra Torresani and through the rest of the run by Mae Whitman (series creator Mitch Hurwitz said he’d toyed with the idea of having a different actress play Ann in each episode, to emphasize how unmemorable she was). She would become George Michael’s greatest love, and Michael’s greatest enemy — when he could remember her. And with that, we present a brief but thorough look at the history of Ann and the Bluths — all the “Who?”s, all the “Her?”s, all the “Egg”s, and all the insults.

Exclusive Supercut: Gary Oldman Loses His Shit

By

The great Gary Oldman, one of our very favorite actors, turns 55 years old today, and while there’s much to celebrate about the actor — his tremendous range, his chameleonic physical versatility, the ease with which he juggles small and large films, the flawlessness of his American accent — we have to say that our favorite thing about him is the skill and intensity with which he goes insane onscreen. It happens fairly reliably across his filmography, and it’s always worth waiting for, so in celebration of Mr. Oldman’s birthday, we assembled a few of our favorite instances of the actor going bananas. Check it out after the jump.

Exclusive Supercut: “The Early Roles of Your Oscar Nominees”

By

Here at Flavorwire, nothing delights us more than the creative archaeology of an actor’s early years: the opportunity to observe raw talent in its embryonic form, to marvel at how far they’ve come, to observe the humble beginnings of bit roles and low budgets. For this exclusive supercut, we dug up some of the early film and television performances of the ten nominees for acting Oscars at this year’s Academy Awards. One of them, of course, has a much more slender resume (her early role is her Oscar-nominated one); the rest have decades of little breaks that brought them to Oscar night. Check them all out after the jump.

Exclusive Supercut: Very Bad Santas

By

There’s no single figure more beloved during the Christmas season — and in Christmas movies — than good old Saint Nick. But as the years have passed and times have grown more cynical, the holly jolly Kris Kringles of Miracle on 34th Street have been joined in the cinematic Christmas canon by boozing, screwing, stealing Santas of the Bad Santa ilk. For this special Christmas supercut, we’ve assembled some of the sketchier Saint Nicks of cinematic history; check them all out after the jump.
