Review: Lady Bird

Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird reminded me of my own experiences growing up. When a coming-of-age movie works, I'm bound to say that, and Lady Bird is one that works so well. Or, as they say in Northern California, hella good. Given, Lady Bi...

Review: The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

All happy families are the same; each unhappy family is only sort of the same, and will eventually wind up in their own movie or book. Take the Meyerowitzes in Noah Baumbach's latest movie. This sophisticated clan of New Yorkers reminded of...

The Best Stand Up on Netflix Right Now

At the tender age of 10, I was plopped down in my Fathers car on the way home from dinner. My brothers leg jutted into my right knee, and we pushed against each other as the car swerved around corners, and cradled us over bumps in the ...

Your Bad Movie Night Guide, Vol. 9: Chopping Mall

In Volume 9 of Your Bad Movie Night Guide, we cover Chopping Mall, our first reader suggestion, brought to you by @TheLimoMaker. I nearly typed chopping block, as chopping mall makes very little sense, even after seeing the m...

Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

I think I open up every post I write about the original Kingsman movie like this, but what an effing surprise it was. In a rare occurrence I didn't catch the flick in theaters, and despite the positive reviews I still thought it l...

The 'Netflix is a Joke' campaign is incredible marketing

Last night was the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, a ceremony where our beloved television industry pats itself on the back and tells itself how good they did. It's a night full of accolades for those who excelled in the entertainme...

Your Bad Movie Night Guide, Vol. 8: Miami Connection

Continuing to prove that there was no period better than the end of the 80s to deliver flicks that have stood the test of time and have remained bad, meet Miami Connection. It was bad then, bad in the 90s, and is just hilarious n...

Trevor Noah's 'The Daily Show' contract extended through 2022

The Daily Show has certainly gone through a metamorphosis in the last couple of years. The departure of Jon Stewart from the show had many shouting that this was the end of The Daily Show. And, after so many seasons with such a well-liked a...

'The Magic School Bus Rides Again' has a weak-ass trailer now

Along with most of my fellow friends and classmates, I grew up in the culture of the late 90's. It was a marvelous time filled with Rollerblades, Pizza, and Nintendo; almost everything a kid needs to have a good time. Almost. Kids are natur...

Super Troopers 2 gets baked, and trailer!

Super Troopers the original was left in a basket on our doorsteps all the way back in 2002. Probably around the same time some of you were delivered to your parents by giant, lice-ridden birds. In other words, it's been a while. But&nb...

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot will begin filming this Fall

Kevin Smith has become a polarizing figure in recent years. The prolific director has crafted some excellent comedic films - Clerks, Dogma, Mallrats, Chasing Amy. The list goes on. On the other hand, Smith has missed the mark with several f...

It's been a hot summer - and a hot minute since we've heard anything about Season 4 of BoJack Horseman. In July, Netflix announced that the new season would premiere on September 8, but besides the date, no new information about the plot or...

Review: The Hitman's Bodyguard

It's August, and that means we're entering the second span of doldrums for movie releases for the year (the first being the beginning of the year). From now until late September, when all of the horror films start rolling in, we get studio ...

New Thor: Ragnarok Trailer teases Doctor Strange

If you saw our coverage of SDCC two months back, you may have seen this incredible trailer for the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok and thought to yourself, "Jeeeez that looks like a hell of a lot of fun!" I wouldn't blame you, it's what we were all...

Your Bad Movie Night Guide, Vol. 4: Tango & Cash

Imagine a time when movie heroes were heroes not for being pretty, metrosexual types capable of playing a broad range of characters aptly displaying a broad spectrum of emotions, but because they had big muscles, or knew kung-fu. The year i...

Review: The Emoji Movie

You know, for the longest time I thought that this movie was a joke. Something invented by film producers to have a laugh. A prank that writers bounced around, but never dared to seriously consider, lest their career be stamped with a black...

Your Bad Movie Night Guide, Vol. 2: Zombeavers

Some movies are so bad they're good. Like last week's entry, Shark Attack 3: Megalodon; while it appears that it must have been somewhat selfaware (one would hope), at other times, it clearly took itself plenty seriously. Or, ...

'The Incredibles 2' picks up where the first left off

The Incredibles ended on a high note, with the Parr family jumping into action to defeat The Underminer, and then a cut to black implying that their adventures would continue one day. Today we know that there is indeed a second Incredibles ...

Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 9 comes October 1

In snark-free news, HBO announced Curb Your Enthusiasm's oft-desired, long overdue, long-rumored return. There's a trailer of sorts, though it's more of just an announcement proving this is actually happening: it has been six years, af...

The New Warriors announces its main cast

A few months ago Freeform formerly known as ABC Family announced that they had ordered a 10 episode season of Marvel's New Warriors sight unseen. At first it was exciting to me as I've heard nothing but great things about the comic series b...

BoJack Horseman returns September 8th

The last season of BoJack Horseman was by far the best yet. Each season has been good, but BoJack is the kind of show that only gets better as its concepts are explored further, and Season 3 was quite an achievement for this funny, yet depr...

Dragonball: Evolution is one of the best-worst movies ever

It’s no secret that faithfully adapting any kind of property is a tall order. Adaption often results in an atrocious product, born from disinterested creators and corporate interests looking to make some quick bank. However, on the su...

Review: The Little Hours

You're probably as optimistic about The Little Hours as I was; hey, that's why you're here, waiting for me to tell you all about it. You saw the all-star comedic cast: it includes Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie, Dave Franco, John C. Reilly, Kate...

'F is for Family' will get a Season 3

If you're at all like me, you're a bit wary of the Netflix original series that the company tries to shove down your throat. Don't get me wrong, there are lots of Netflix series that are great, but for every Stranger Things or House of...
