It’s going to be a while before we get to see some of our most highly anticipated fall films, but with summer winding down at least the marketing for these movies is in full swing. Today brings the first trailer for #21 on our list, Certain Women. The new drama by Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy) is really three dramas intertwined, led by four fine actresses: Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart, Laura Dern, and newcomer Lily Gladstone.
The women don’t necessarily have a lot in common, but all four are trying to make their way in the lonely Montana plains. Certain Women has already received some excellent reviews on the festival circuit, starting with Sundance earlier this year, and now it’s finally headed to theaters. Watch the Certain Women trailer below. Read More »

Bill Burr is one of those comedians that you either love or hate. He’s not shy about voicing his opinion, no matter how blunt or controversial it may be, and he doesn’t coddle his audiences by skirting around things like racism, sexism or anything politically incorrect. But that’s part of his charm. He’s a real salt-of-the-earth kind of guy, and a bit of an asshole, but he brings an immense amount of wit, intelligence and common sense with him. That’s why I’m pretty excited to see what he can bring to the animated family sitcom.
F is for Family is a new Netflix show created by Burr himself and The Simpsons writer Michael Price, and the full trailer for the series has just arrived, showcasing the comedian’s unique approach to raising a family back in 1973, when men were men and women weren’t astronauts. But beware, because, there’s some salty NSFW language. Read More »

Netflix has a lot of exciting original content coming out in the next few months. For me, their next must-see show is F is for Family. The animated show, created by comedian Bill Burr and Michael Price (writer on The Simpsons), is loosely based on Burr’s childhood. If you’ve ever seen the comic’s standup, then you know his childhood would make for a hilarious television show.
Watch the teaser for F is For Family after the jump.
