quarantine stream what we do in the shadows

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The TV Show: What We Do in the Shadows

Where You Can Stream It: Hulu

The Pitch: The horror-comedy movie What We Do in the Shadows, about a group of clueless vampires sharing an apartment, gets repurposed into a TV series that manages to improve on what was already a pretty great scenario.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: A new poll was released revealing that “Americans are the unhappiest they’ve been in 50 years,” and I’m not at all surprised. Everything feels extra strenuous these days, for a variety of reasons. As such, we could all use a good laugh – and What We Do in the Shadows has plenty of those. The series takes what was funny about the film and manages to make it even funnier – no small feat, all things considered.  Read More »

Mark Hamill - Star Wars The Last Jedi Disagreement

Mark Hamill will always be known as Luke Skywalker, but outside of the Star Wars saga, he’s been doing extremely interesting work with an array of eclectic characters. On top of his incredible voice work as The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and recent turns in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance and Avengers Assemble, Hamill has also been appearing on live-action shows like The Flash and Knightfall. But his latest role is one of the most exciting yet.

The second season of What We Do in the Shadows has recruited Mark Hamill as an ancient vampire who is a rival of Laszlo, played by Matt Berry. The new character tracks down Laszlo out of nowhere to settle a personal debt, and based on the first look photo of Mark Hamill in What We Do in the Shadows, this is going to be a lot of fun.

The 15 Funniest Movies of the Decade

Funniest Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.)

When considering the best in cinema, it can be easy to overlook the movies that go out of their way to make us crack up. For whatever reason, comedy never seems as significant or important as comedy. But if we didn’t laugh, there’d be nothing to pick us up from those sad moments. So as part of our look back at the decade that was 2010 through 2019, I wanted to make sure we singled out the funniest movies of the year. No, I’m not just picking the best comedies, because sometimes the funniest movies can’t be so simply classified in a single genre like that. Instead, I wanted to pick the movies that made us laugh the hardest, most frequently, and most consistently. Without further adieu, let’s get into the Top 15 Funniest Movies of the Decade. Read More »
