The first Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee season 8 trailer has just debuted online, teasing Seinfeld’s fascinating discussions with some of comedy’s most brilliant minds. This season includes Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, director Judd Apatow, former Daily Show correspondent and Last Week Tonight host John Oliver, and plenty more. Watch below!

The documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters from 2007 is one of the most entertaining documentaries I’ve ever seen. The film from director Seth Gordon (who has gone on to direct films like Horrible Bosses) followed two grown men competing for a new world record for the highest score on the Donkey Kong arcade game. Now another arcade rivalry will come to life in a new documentary called Man vs Snake: The Long and Twisted Tale of Nibbler.
As the Man vs Snake trailer below illustrates, the film sets the stage by introducing us to Tim McVey, the man who set a world record in 1984 by becoming the first person to score over a billion points on a single video game. That game was Nibbler, which may be better known as “Snake” to today’s crowd. But now one man has stepped up to challenge Tim’s score, and he just might have the goods to back it up. Read More »
If you keep up on viral sensations on the web, there’s a good chance that you’ve heard of Unlocking the Truth. The heavy metal band is made up of three 7th grade African-American kids from Brooklyn, and when one of their performances in Times Square went viral, they skyrocketed to fame online and in the music industry. Now a new documentary follows their journey.
Breaking a Monster follows Malcolm Brickhouse (vocals/guitar), Alec Atkins (bass), and Jarad Dawkins (drums) as they come to terms with their fame, face some pretty daunting adult consequences and decisions, and of course, rock to their heart’s content.

Everybody Loves Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal says, “Television can basically be broken down into two parts: before Norman and after Norman.” The “Norman” in question is none other than Norman Lear, the iconic producer behind groundbreaking television shows such as All in the Family, Good Times, The Jeffersons and Maude. The new documentary Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You debuted earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and now the riveting documentary about the man and his impact on television is coming to theaters this summer.

As a magic fanatic, I consider the Seth Gordon-produced Make Believe to be one of my favorite documentaries of the last decade. The film followed six of the world’s best young magicians own their road to the Teen World Championship in Las Vegas. If you haven’t seen the film, you should (here is the trailer).
One of the many things that is interesting about documentaries is that the stories continue even after the credits end. And I often wonder what happened to the subjects of some of my favorite documentaries. In the case of Make Believe, did these teen magicians ever make it to the big time? Last night I saw the star of Make Believe on national network television and thought it was worth sharing, alongside some brief details about where the other subjects of the documentary have ended up.
