From Bill Lawrence, the creator of Scrubs, we learned what the inspiration for Dr. "JD" John Dorian (Zach Braff) is up to. Time to update your headcanon, so turn on some early 2000's college rock and prepare to be excited and inspired by what our real-life "JD" has been up to: This is the guy […]

"Portrait of a Lady on Fire" is on Hulu and You Should Watch It

"Supergirl" Enters the Matrix in "Alex in Wonderland" [SPOILER REVIEW]

The CW's Supergirl shifts its focus this week from Kara to Alex (Chyler Leigh) as she enters the Obsidian North virtual world looking for escape. Instead she finds herself unwilling/unable to leave after getting overtaken by the fantasy of living as Supergirl. For a season that has set the idea of escaping into a virtual […]

"Space Ghost", "Metalocalypse" & More: 7 Binge-Worthy Adult Swim Shows

Adult Swim has stepped up to combat all of this staying at home and "involuntary social distancing" by making a ton of their content available to stream for free. This is in many ways perfect, as this takes me back to a couple of decades ago adolescence, when I'd stay home most Friday nights and […]

"Batwoman" and Alice Go "Through the Looking Glass" [SPOILER REVIEW]

The CW's Batwoman goes dark and heavy as we deal with the fallout from last week's episode where Kate (Ruby Rose) accidentally killed Jonathan Cartwright, Alice's (Rachel Skarsten) kidnapper and torturer. We literally open on the two of them, along with Daddy Kane (Dougray Scott) burying Cartwright under an overpass in some forgotten corner of […]





Crappy St. Patrick's Day: The Disney+ Version of "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" is Garbage

The Disney+ Version of "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" is Garbage

Crappy St. Patrick's Day, everyone. If you were planning to stream Darby O'Gill and the Little People on Disney+, I have some bad news. The version available to stream is terrible. And there's no reason for it, similar to their (ongoing) problem with The Simpsons on the platform. It's a tragedy on top of so […]

Universal’s Back into “The Hunt”, New Trailer, Poster

"The Hunt" Review: A Bloody Mess, Sure to Be Misunderstood

Who is The Hunt for, exactly? Its muddled message and inconsistent tone make it somewhat hard to follow. But by the end, you're left asking "Exactly who (or what?) am I supposed to be rooting for here?" Despite all of that, there is some buried wisdom among the nihilistic ultraviolence that offers a bleak, but […]


007 Bond Binge: From Russia with Love

007 Bond Binge: "From Russia With Love"

When James Bond returns in this classic Cold War thriller, From Russia With Love, don't you dare say "Sophomore Slump." While later films Goldfinger and Thunderball would dominate the box office, win Academy Awards, and become the templates for future Bond films, From Russia With Love remains the film that those who worked on the […]

Illiterate Racist Parasite Trump Mocks Parasite Oscar Wins

Putative US President Donald Trump mocked Parasite's Oscar sweep at a political rally in Colorado Springs and literally has an American President never talked so much out his ass about art and popular culture in the history of our now-fragile republic. So make yourself a big ol' bowl of tasty Ram-Don and settle in while […]
