Jimmy Kimmel fires back at his GOP healthcare critics, including Fox News' "phony little creep," Brian Kilmeade

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 04:50:00 GMT

(image)

On Tuesday night, Jimmy Kimmel used his Jimmy Kimmel Live! monologue to go after Republicans attempting to—yes, again—strip affordable medical coverage from tens of millions of people.

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 04:14:14 GMT

(image)

Jake LaMotta has died; known as one of the most durable, ferocious boxers in the history of the sport, his life served as the basis of Martin Scorsese’s classic Raging Bull, based on his own 1970 autobiography.

You're The Worst explores the world outside of Jimmy and Gretchen's relationship

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 03:40:00 GMT

(image)

After four episodes, it’s become clearer what Stephen Falk and company want to accomplish with this new season of You’re The Worst. Instead of artificially reuniting Jimmy and Gretchen, or even keeping them in the same orbit, the move is to keep them apart as much as humanly possible. This risky approach could only be…

Kingsman gets dumber in the lurching, incoherent Golden Circle

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 03:25:00 GMT

(image)

Dumber and less stylish than its predecessor, Kingsman: The Secret Service, the cartoonish secret-agent pastiche Kingsman: The Golden Circle is also even more of an incoherent right-wing text, an exaggeration of the James Bond movies’ violence, fashion sense, and sex that keeps trying to pass off its ham-fisted…

Brilliant guest performances from RuPaul and Shania Twain elevate Broad City 

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 03:01:00 GMT

(image)

At first, Broad City’s “Twaining Day” seems to be a grand display of stunt casting. The episode guest stars RuPaul, Wanda Sykes, Shania Twain, and a criminally underused Sandra Bernhard. The show certainly gets a lot of mileage out of making Shania Twain, “Canadian queen of country-pop,” say ridiculous lines, like…

(image)

The Daddy-ing of Mark Wahlberg continues this week, with Variety reporting that the actor has signed on for another film from Sean Anders, the writer-director behind the Daddy’s Home movies.

Equifax accidentally sent hack victims to a phishing site

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 23:27:42 GMT

(image)

A company has to have some major internal issues if it can fuck up so bad that it lets hackers leak out the personal information of 143 million people, keep quiet about it for several months, and let executives quietly dump a bunch of high-value stock before letting the public know about what happened, but Equifax is…

Wes Anderson releases a gorgeous stop-motion tease for tomorrow's Isle Of Dogs trailer

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 22:57:00 GMT

(image)

Over the last few years, we’ve come to roll our eyes, with good reason, as the “teaser for the trailer” trend, in which marketers attempt to build anticipation for the thing designed to build anticipation for a major film. That being said, most teases don’t feature intricate stop-motion animation or gorgeous…

Sam Waterston is bringing Jack McCoy back for an episode of SVU

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 22:13:00 GMT

(image)

For a lot of people, Sam Waterston is the face of angry lawyering on TV, thanks to the 16 years (368 episodes!) he spent as quick-witted, sarcastic, occasionally furious district attorney Jack McCoy on the long-running Law & Order franchise. (Meanwhile, Michael Moriarty fans are forced to simply pick up the scraps…

Amazon developing Alexa-powered "smart glasses" for nerds who need something extra

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 22:03:00 GMT

(image)

It’s obviously silly to think that wearing glasses will make you smarter, but only because the truth is that all smart people wear glasses.

Stronger is strongest when letting Jake Gyllenhaal play up the human flaws of a famous survivor

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 21:15:00 GMT

(image)

Jeff Bauman can be a fuckup. That, anyway, is how Stronger sometimes opts to portray him: not just as a courageous survivor, not just as a symbol of perseverance, but as an immature knucklehead, too. Bauman was there at the finish line of the Boston Marathon in April of 2013, when two homemade bombs detonated; he…

Paramount is reportedly "not happy" about J.J. Abrams leaving to make another Star Wars movie

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 21:11:00 GMT

(image)

Paramount is having a pretty crummy 2017; this year’s Transformers movie, The Last Knight, was the franchise’s lowest-performing entry to date, and the company’s schedule has been dotted with bombs like Ghost In The Shell and Mother!, the latter of which managed to be exactly as audience-alienating as Darren Aronofsky…
