Drunk History’s Derek Waters on how the show turns boozy ramblings into TV gold

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 20:30:00 GMT

(image)

Drunk History’s format is a winner: Take a famous comedian, get them drunk, film them struggling their way through a historical story, and use their slurred monologue as an audio track over which other famous actors lip sync and reenact the story. It’s a simple, effective premise but one that takes a lot of work to…

The cloying Please Stand By goes where feel-good movies about autism have gone before

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 20:15:00 GMT

(image)

Over the past couple of decades, autism has undergone a sea change in public perception. Most people now recognize that it’s a spectrum of disorders, not a single rigid condition, and are aware that Dustin Hoffman’s semi-robotic, Oscar-winning performance in Rain Man isn’t exactly representative. On screen, however,…

Star Wars: Episode IX can fill Leia’s absence by embracing its forgotten queen

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 20:00:00 GMT

(image)

In a 2017 Vanity Fair profile on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, producer Kathleen Kennedy shared a story about Carrie Fisher’s final day on set: “The minute she finished,” Kennedy explains, “she grabbed me and said, ‘I’d better be at the forefront of IX!’ Because Harrison [Ford] was front and center on VII, and Mark…

Twitter meme-ifies the persnickety breakfast demands of Phantom Thread’s Reynolds Woodcock

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 18:30:00 GMT

(image)

For a movie based in the world of fashion, Phantom Thread sure featured a lot of food and mealtimes. Who could forget Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis)’s extensive breakfast order on his first encounter with lovely waitress Alma (Vicky Krieps)? Or the ensuing morning meal battles that followed, based on how loudly…

Oscars introduce new rules to prevent another thrilling envelope mistake

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 19:40:00 GMT

(image)

The end of last year’s Academy Awards ceremony was the most exciting in recent memory, which is to say that it was pretty much the only time the Oscars were ever really exciting. And it was all because of a tremendous fuck-up in which Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway read the wrong card and announced the Best Picture…

The A.V. Club weighs in on the snubs and nods of this year’s Oscar nominations

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 19:03:00 GMT

(image)

Katie Rife: Well, we’ve reached the pinnacle of awards season: The 2018 Oscar nominations were announced this morning. Watching the live stream, there were two films that exceeded my admittedly cynical expectations: Get Out defied the Academy’s historical bias against genre films with four major nominations—Best…

Spike TV is dead but we can still slam some brews and read its internal "manifesto"

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 18:51:00 GMT

(image)

The world has taken so much from bros. Abercrombie & Fitch golf shirts have left widespread distribution; butt-rock and dubstep are on life-support; there hasn’t been a new Daniel Tosh special since 2011. It’s hard out there and the recent death of Spike TV, a Valhalla of nonstop bro-gramming, is only pouring salt…

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 18:50:00 GMT

(image)

Thanks in great part to co-host Tiffany Haddish, today’s Oscar nominations announcements were a lively affair despite having kicked off before the end of most nominees’ REM cycles. But once these actors and auteurs did wake up, they were greeted with some of the best news.

David Harbour now asking for retweets so he can meet a penguin, or something

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 18:42:00 GMT

(image)

David Harbour exudes authority, grit, and melancholy as Police Chief Jim Hopper on Stranger Things. On Twitter, however, he’s more like that kid who tweeted his way into free chicken nuggets. This guy is downright reckless with the platform, indulging fan requests for his involvement in high school senior photos and

Kids: If the package says “edibles,” don’t eat what’s inside 

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 17:20:00 GMT

(image)

It’s kind of surprising this doesn’t happen more often, as most marijuana-laced “edibles” resemble nothing as much as actual candy, like gummy bears and lollipops. Still, this story out of New Mexico is rather horrifying, as a fifth-grader found an edibles box and took it to school to share with her class, thinking it…

This week, we’re sharing songs from Philadelphia natives Circa Survive, whose latest LP, The Amulet, was released in late 2017. In this video, the band…

In inspirational show of unity, 1000s tweet "Nice" to AP post about 69-hour shutdown

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 17:56:00 GMT

(image)

Yesterday, a group of 33 Democrats got bilked by Republicans into caving on protections for dreamers, somehow surmising that Mitch McConnell and the Republican establishment will engage in a fair negotiation about the future of the DACA program later, when they have no reason to. The thinking behind this political…

Kratos and son find adventure, a release date in new God Of War trailer

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 17:21:00 GMT

(image)

There’s a lot of new stuff packed into the latest trailer for Sony’s upcoming God Of War revival. We already knew the not-quite-reboot would pick up centuries after we last saw Kratos, the angry Greek dude who went on a god-killing rampage after they betrayed him, and would find him settled down in Scandinavia,…

Bill Cosby makes triumphant return to ignoring rape allegations

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 17:20:00 GMT

(image)

Making a rare appearance at a small Philadelphia club, Bill Cosby dropped in to perform a set before an intimate audience last night, regaling them with amusing anecdotes, sitting in with the band, and patently ignoring dozens of sexual assault accusations. Though he’s more or less been out of the public eye since…

Conan O'Brien flies to Haiti, invites actual Haitians to insult our dumb president

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 17:09:00 GMT

(image)

Decent citizens shrugged despairingly upon hearing that President Donald Trump used the word “shitholes” (or was it “shithouses”?) to describe Haiti and a number of African countries, already envisioning the justifiable fury, administration denials, and lack of any and all consequence that would follow. Late show…

Here’s what’s coming to (and leaving from) HBO in February

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 17:05:00 GMT

(image)

February might be the shortest month of the year, but that doesn’t mean HBO’s skimping on the new additions to its HBO Now service. Aside from extended versions or director’s cuts of the Alien films—including AVP: Alien Vs. Predator, for peak extraterrestrial efficiency—Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman strides onto the…

When a new tour is announced featuring two of the artists in The A.V. Club’s five best albums of 2017, it’s cause for us to get excited. But when that same tour includes other great musicians, including the guy who rapped, “Missus Piggy want her Biggie back...I’ma keep on eating till my ankles fat”? Perfection.

Ryan Reynolds is making a Clue movie with the Deadpool writers

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 16:10:00 GMT

(image)

The box-office success of Deadpool despite its R rating has given Ryan Reynolds enough clout to secure a three-picture deal with 20th Century Fox. But, as Deadline reports, the actor-producer isn’t straying too far from that franchise for the first film in that arrangement. Reynolds is reuniting with Deadpool scribes…

The creators of Comedy Central’s Corporate on the worst jobs they’ve ever had

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 15:30:00 GMT

(image)

Although it’s not completely autobiographical, Comedy Central’s new show Corporate does pull from creators Matt Ingebretson’s and Jake Weisman’s professional experiences. They’ve had their fair share of soul-crushing jobs at multinational corporations and mind-numbingly dull jobs at tiny businesses. In the video…
