Amazon has dropped the first look at The Boys Season 2

I've been growing rather tired of the superhero genre over the past few years. It's not that I don't like them but I'm just getting tired of the same stories over and over with different characters thrown in. Sure there are some bright spo...

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Season 14

It's surprising to see a show like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia still on the air in 2019. Never one to shy away from controversial topics, the series has made a name for itself by featuring some of the "worst" characters ever committed...

Review: Harley Quinn (Season 1)

There is something so profoundly unsettling to me with Harley Quinn's character. It all goes back to the core of her relationship with the Joker, which has always come across as toxic and abusive, even in less adult-orientated Batman media....

Rick and Morty returns November 10 for five new episodes

It's been a few months since Adult Swim last talked Rick and Morty, but we now finally have a concrete date for the duo's return. The off-beat, snarky series will be hitting airwaves on November 10 for a five-episode run. A new trailer sho...

Review: Killer Sofa

Let's get this controversy out of the way right now: The piece of demonic furniture in Killer Sofa is (big gasp)... not actually a sofa. It's a recliner. It's a chair. As Oxford describes it, a sofa is "a long upholstered seat with a back a...

Review: Koko-di Koko-da

A married couple attempts a camping trip, the first vacation they've had since an outing to celebrate their daughter's birthday. There is no child, now. They're alone, despondent, and aggravated as they twist through backroads before stoppi...

Contest: The Dead Don't Die, and neither do our giveaways

Today's contest sees the dead rise again in a Blu-ray copy of The Dead Don't Die. Man, zombies just don't die. I mean, they do kinda, but I meant the zombie genre. In both movies and gaming it's still going pretty strong, despite being...

It's Always Sunny Season 14 will premiere later this month

FXX's cult dark comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will be returning for its 14th season on September 25, 2019. A new trailer shows off a few moments of insanity from the upcoming episodes and the rage seems to be intact. While it's ...

Jojo Rabbit's latest trailer shows a lighter side of Hitler

Taika Waititi's absurd dark comedy Jojo Rabbit has gotten another trailer and it shows a lighter side of Hitler. I can't actually follow that statement up with anything that won't offend someone, so I'll just say that I appreciate the tone...

Review: Satanic Panic

Most horror films try to spread the idea that your average devil worshiper is some basement-dwelling white dude who lives off-the-grid, has no income of his own, and is repellent to anyone with half a brain unfortunate enough to land anywhe...

Review: Clownado

Clownado, a movie entirely based on some lazy wordplay, found the most surefire way to get my undivided attention. What can I say? I'm a man of simple pleasures. This low-budget slice of horror/comedy has the added pleasure of conjuring in ...

One Cut of the Dead wants you to skip its own trailer

Doing a movie in a single take is all the rage these days, so we should have all assumed that someone would make a zombie movie using that same hook. And so here we are with One Cut of the Dead, the Birdman of zombie movies--except this lo...

Review: Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus

It's strange to think that a show like Invader Zim would still have a dedicated fanbase nearly 18 years since its initial release. Mostly I would think that its continued popularity has something to do with how hard it's hard to pin down Zi...

Preacher is the best show you should have watched

In less than one week, Preacher will start its final season. For some, they couldn't be more excited to see how the story of Jesse Custer finally ends. For most, they probably never heard of the show. In the age of high quality TV shows, no...

Taika Waititi's satire Jojo Rabbit skewers the Nazis

Taika Waititi has really taken the cinematic world by storm these past few years. What We Do in the Shadows was a breakout hit (that spawned a TV series--also a hit), followed by the Sam Neilltastic Hunt for the Wilderpeople. Then it's off...

Review: Rondo

Rondo is a weird blend of half-intentional and half-probably-not-intentional weirdness, humor, and spectacle. Sometimes actors forget to act and just say their lines. Sometimes they gleefully nosh the scenery like it's made of cotton candy....

Insanity is contagious in new trailer for Hulu's Catch-22

With the 1970 Mike Nichols film far in the rearview at this point, Hulu is now taking a stab at adapting Joseph Heller's landmark novel, with Christopher Abbott stepping in for Alan Arkin's original role as Yossarian, the WWII bombardier w...

Review: The Beach Bum

What's tan, giggles, and guzzles beer by the case? Moondog, of course! Who or what exactly is a "Moondog?" Well he's just here from another dimension, passing through. In director Harmony Korine's latest Florida-set cinematic odyssey The Be...

Review: Relaxer

Nostalgia-baiting is something I'm not too familiar with. I'm not fond of superheroes, and I wasn't alive in the 80's, so I figured myself to be pretty well nostalgia-proof when it comes to the film industry. I can't be manipulated. I can't...

Review: Cold Pursuit

Liam Neeson is a very accomplished actor with an extraordinary acting range and physical talent. It's a shame that ever since his appearance in 2008's Taken, he's basically been in the same role film after film. That is certainly underselli...

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Season 13

After a decade of airing, it takes a very special combination of acting, writing and comedic timing to keep a sitcom going. For most of these shows, there seems to be a specific season you can point to where the quality went on a downward t...

Review: Arizona

From 2007 through 2009, the United States was in a financial crisis created in large part to the housing bubble that burst like a bad appendix. After a strong peak, housing prices dropped dramatically, leading to unpaid mortgages and eventu...

BoJack Horseman Season 5 gets a release date

BoJack Horseman is underrated. It's been one of my favorite Netflix originals since it's premiere, contrasting cartoony visuals with a depressing story about narcissism, loss and excess. Not to mention the premise and the style of this show...

Atlanta renewed for Season 3

Atlanta has been renewed for another season, and I can breathe a sigh of relief. On Thursday, FX ordered another season of the two-time Emmy winning show that has been making waves on cable television. Atlanta, born from the always captivat...

Review: Best F(r)iends (Volume 1)

This is a hard movie to review. It isn’t ‘good’, but I loved it. If you’re a fan of The Room, it retains that film’s oddball charm without it feeling forced. It barely makes sense and its slow pacing makes me w...

SXSW: Barry

Veteran comedic actor Bill Hader and writer-producer Alec Berg knew they had to develop a series for HBO, but didn't know what. While bouncing ideas off each other, Bill said, "What if I was a hitman." Alec was skeptical. "No, it'd be me, B...

Review: Gringo

What happens if you attempt to take the street hoodlums from a Guy Ritchie flick and transport them to the world of corporate America? Or, conversely, if you try to take corporate America and dump it into the midst of a Guy Ritchie flick? T...

Review: The End of the F**cking World

An adaptation of the 2013 graphic novel by Charles Forsman, The End of the F**king World is an early 2018 drop for Netflix aimed to cash in on the troubled teen variety of television series' success. Maybe it's done in a slightly diffe...
