Everything Sucks Trailer

There has been plenty of nostalgia and love for the 1980s in recent years, but now that we’re inching closer to 2020, it looks like the 1990s are about to enjoy their heyday in the nostalgic spotlight. At least that’s what Netflix is hoping with the teaser for a new high school series set in 1996.

Everything Sucks! is a new 10-episode half-hour dramedy created by Like Crazy writer Ben York Jones and Save the Date writer/director Michael Mohan that follows a group of teens from the AV and drama club as they deal with the trials and tribulations of going to Boring High School. No, seriously, that’s the name of the high school they go to in Boring, Oregon.

Get a first look at the teaser for the series below. Read More »

Show Dogs Trailer

While movies like Moana, How to Train Your Dragon and Inside Out may try to entertain kids with stories that are funny, touching and family friendly, there are other movies that try to appeal to the lowest common denominator of children’s entertainment. Thankfully, Show Dogs is not one of those movies.

Instead, Show Dogs is so much worse. It’s the kind of trainwreck that you can’t help but stare at in awe with your mouth wide open. But what else would you expect from a movie about a detective (Will Arnett) being paired with a dog partner (voiced by Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) in order to thwart some kind of animal smuggling ring unfolding at a fancy dog show?

Watch the Show Dogs trailer and see this beautiful disaster for yourself. Read More »

Sam Rockwell Hosted Saturday Night Live

The first Saturday Night Live of 2018 featured Golden Globe winner Sam Rockwell making his hosting debut. Considering how disappointing the Christmas episode with Kevin Hart ended up being towards the end of 2017, the pressure was on for the writers and cast of the late night sketch series to come back with a vengeance.

Thankfully, the Sam Rockwell hosted Saturday Night Live was an absolute delight, even if it came with a handful of missteps throughout the night, including one hilarious f-bomb that made it onto live television. So without further ado, let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the night. Read More »

The Problem with Apu

Last year, comedian Hari Kondabolu released a documentary called The Problem with Apu, addressing problems the titular character from The Simpsons, a convenience store owner of Indian-American descent. Hank Azaria, who voices Apu, was on a Television Critics Association panel for season two of his IFC series Brockmire when he was asked about the documentary. Azaria was grateful for the chance to respond, but does it mean The Simpsons will make any changes to the character?

Little Bitches trailer

As we step further into 2018, it’s now dawning on me that we’re only a couple years away from looking back on the last ten years of filmmaking and assessing major industry trends that have happened over the past decade. And while I’ll hold most of those observations until then, one of the things I’ve noticed is that, after an influx of teen comedies about 20 years ago, entries in that genre seem to have largely dropped off in the past few years.

But an upcoming film called Little Bitches proves that if you have a solid script and a talented young cast, the teen high school comedy will never go out of style. Check out the red-band trailer and two exclusive clips from the film below.
