bojack horseman season 5

BoJack Horseman, the funniest show about self-loathing you’ll ever see, is one of the best original shows on Netflix. Somehow able to combine extremely sharp, often obscure jokes with crushing yet keen reflections on depressing, it’s a truly remarkable piece of pop entertainment. And Netflix isn’t horsing around about it, either. Per BoJack Horseman’s own Twitter account, straight from the horse’s mouth, comes word that Netflix has greenlit Bojack Horseman Season 5.

Handsome Trailer

If you’re a Curb Your Enthusiasm fan who is anxiously awaiting the ninth season that was announced last year, we have something that might hold you over, albeit without Larry David.

Jeff Garlin is one of the regulars on Curb Your Enthusiasm, not to mention making a great 1980s father in The Goldbergs, and he occasionally likes to dabble in writing and directing. He’s back behind the camera with his third movie as writer and director, Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie, which puts Garlin in the role of a Los Angeles homicide detective in a movie that feels like it was made in the 1990s, and I mean that in the best way possible.

bojack horseman s2 trailer

The Netflix series BoJack Horseman has a goofy comic concept: Will Arnett voices a drunk, washed-up actor who is also a horse. And while the show’s first season was often pretty goofy, it also turned out to be a brutally funny and frequently very dark evisceration of celebrity culture, media, and many other aspects of modern life. It also works well as a full season of interconnected stories — the show isn’t just a string of jokes, but a character piece that builds some involving arcs.

Now there’s a trailer for the second season. Naturally it focuses more on quick jokes than any deeper stuff, but it’s still great. Check out the BoJack Horseman S2 trailer below. Read More »

Goodbye to All That trailer

One indie film that’s mostly flown under the radar is Goodbye to All That, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this past spring. But judging by the first trailer, it may be time to give this one a closer look.

Goodbye to All That is the directorial debut of Angus MacLachlan, screenwriter of the remarkable Junebug. Paul Schneider stars as a newly divorced dad trying to navigate the single life for the first time in years. Okay, so the premise sounds a bit familiar, but the execution looks far above average thanks to MacLachlan’s warm, honest approach and engaging performances all around. Watch the first Goodbye to All That trailer after the jump.

BoJack Horseman trailer

Here’s the trailer for the first Netflix original animated series, BoJack Horseman. The show features Will Arnett as the voice of the title character, a horse and former sitcom star who is now washed up and dealing with the downside of fame. OK, mild fame. BoJack is drinking himself into a pit to escape his problems, and trying to deal with human friend Todd (Aaron Paul), feline agent and Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris), and his human girlfriend (or perhaps ex-girlfriend) voiced by Alison Brie.

The show debuts on August 22; watch the BoJack Horseman trailer here now. Read More »

It was picked up for distribution soon after. It’ll finally hit theaters and VOD on June 6 and now you can check out the full trailer below. Read More »

Rooney Mara made a significant impression in The Social Network, thanks in large part to the way she held her own against Jesse Eisenberg in the film’s long opening scene. Now she’s working again for David Fincher in one of the two starring roles in his version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. So there’s a good chance she’s going to be huge.

But after Dragon Tattoo is done it looks like she’ll take a moment to be in a smaller film. The actress has been cast in Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes, from her Tanner Hall co-director Francesca Gregorini. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

I wasn’t planning to write about Gallery1988’s first annual “Is This Thing On” art show as it really has little connection to movies or television (or so I thought… the above piece featuring Judd Apatow mashed-up with the infamous Star Trek Tribbles episode is a fine example of this).
