Here’s my John Wick story. I attended an early morning Fantastic Fest press screening of Chad Stahelski and David Leitch convinced that I was about to watch a B-movie that was one hair away from going straight to DVD. When the credits rolled, I was fairly sure that I had just watched one of the best action movies in years and the rare movie to fully understand how to fully utilize the very specific weapon that is Keanu Reeves. Embargoed, I spent the rest of the day waiting for the film to premiere before an audience of real people, concerned that I was too tired to know what I was watching and that I was wrong about John Wick. Two years later, I’ve watched it at least a dozen times. It’s near-perfect cinematic comfort food.
And oh yeah, a new poster for John Wick: Chapter 2 has arrived, and I’m not even going to try to contain my excitement for what is easily one of my most anticipated movies of 2017.

I hadn’t initially planned on seeing This Is Us, Dan Fogelman’s new NBC drama. The billboards and advertising plastered around Los Angeles made it look uninteresting. I’m not against television dramas, I loved Parenthood and Friday Night Lights (although the advertising for those shows didn’t interest me either, it was the buzz from friends that brought me to them). And then the This Is Us reviews came out just before its premiere teasing a big unexpected twist at the end of the pilot episode. Okay, you got me. So I watched it and I have a few thoughts on the matter. Also, Dan Fogelman has done some interviews explaining what the twist will mean for the rest of the series, so if you’re curious about that, join me.

In 1987, the movie Lethal Weapon paired Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in the first of four buddy cop films. It made Gibson a star, proving he was more than just Mad Max, and Glover made “I’m too old for this shit” a catch phrase that has lasted the decades. For 2016, Fox introduces a new Riggs and Murtaugh for the small screen, played by Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans respectively.
Matt Miller created the TV incarnation, with producers Dan Lin and Jennifer Gwartz. McG directed the pilot. At their TCA panel, Lin said the show wouldn’t interfere with any future movie plans and that they were considering incorporating the characters Leo Getz and Lorna Cole, played by Joe Pesci and Rene Russo in the films, later in the series. We spoke with Miller, Lin and Gwartz at the Fox party for the Television Critics Association. Read More »

The original Bad Santa did such a great job of balancing salty, sour, bitter, and sweet that it almost looked easy. But with the arrival of Bad Santa 2 this fall, we may get a better look at just how difficult it can be to pull off that trick.
There’s some key talent returning in front of the camera. Billy Bob Thornton returns to star as safecracker / mall Santa Willie Soke, along with Tony Cox as Willie’s partner in crime Marcus and Brett Kelly as Willie’s young friend Thurman Merman. Behind the camera, though, there are some major changes. Mark Waters steps up to the plate as director this time around, replacing Terry Zwigoff who helmed the first film, while Shauna Cross and Johnny Rosenthal step in for Glenn Ficarra and John Requa as screenwriters.
Can they replicate the foul-mouthed hilarity and surprising tenderness of the first film? Watch the NSFW Bad Santa 2 trailer below and judge for yourself. Read More »
Fans of Stranger Things who also happen to be fans of the comedy series Parks and Recreation have noticed that Joe Keery (who plays Steve on Netflix’s sci-fi show) looks an awful lot like Ben Schwartz, who played Jean-Ralphio Saperstein on the NBC comedy series. Fans hypothesized that since Stranger Things is set in the fictional Indiana town of Hawkins in the 1980s, it only made sense that he would turn out to be the father of Jean-Ralphio in Parks and Recreation‘s fictional Indiana town of Pawnee.
Thankfully, Ben Schwartz took the time to confirm this theory on The Late Late Show with James Corden back in August, and now we get to see father and son reunited in a series of photos posted to social media by the two actors.
Check out some of the Stranger Things and Parks and Recreation “reunion” photos after the jump. Read More »
