Jimmy Kimmel: Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat Goes Trump-Stumping for GOP (VIDEO)

So the midterm elections of 2018 are kinda'-sorta' behind us (barring recounts, slow counts, etc.), and there are some positive and negative takeaways from what felt like two years of constant campaigning.

Looks like someone really wasn't in on the joke… Controversial Alabama judge Roy Moore may have walked out of an interview/purported pedophile detector demonstration with Sacha Baron Cohen; but if Moore has his way, he'll be seeing the actor/satirist again – in court – to the tune of $95 million in damages.

Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Discs Made To Look Like Pirate Copies

Repeating a novelty I last saw with Borat, Sony have pressed their DVD copies of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo to look like bootlegs burned onto DV-R. I thought Lisbeth would be such a digital fringe outlier that she'd more likely have some sort of handicam pirate copy torrented and stored on a USB […]

Swipe File: Wayne's World And John Ford's The Iron Horse

The Kazakh Answer To Borat – But What The Hell Was The Question?

I've had more than one conversation with Kazakhs who have point blank refused to believe Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat was anything other than a cruel and baseless their country. To my eye, the film's satire and irony is more than obvious, but it doesn't seem to have translated very well. Kazakh director Erkin Rakishev is planning an […]
