This Adele Parody About Being Stuck Inside Is So Cathartic

HELLO FROM THE INSIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE People all across this nation are continuing to adhere to social distancing rules outlined by the CDC, as well as orders implemented at a state or regional level like Safer At Home, and I think it’s fair to assume that some all of us are beginning to go a little bit completely insane. Even the introverts among us (like me) are starting to get that cabin fever itch, and if we’re not careful, if we start to lose our grip even a tiny bit, who knows wher...

This Driver Announces Her Divorce In Rush Hour

I mean, that’s one way to do it Marriage is hard, but rush hour traffic is harder. In relationships, there is compromise (and if there isn’t - y’all can just break up!). However, rush hour traffic loves no one: no matter how carefully you plan your route to ensure you won’t be late, rush hour traffic will selfishly cause unprecedented slowdowns and senseless lane closures that will make you so late for work that that your co-workers will start to think you’re a careless asshole when reall...

The Film Doctor's one sentence review of Back to the Future

Why isn't the movie called Back to the Present (?), since Marty never does go into the future, even though, admittedly, Dr. Brown does late in the storyline as an afterthought; Robert Zemeckis could have called it Oedipus, the Skater Punk since the younger Lea Thompson as Marty's youthful mother steals the movie given her premature interest in her son and Crispin Glover as George McFly (Marty's dad) is simply astonishingly good as the consummate dork as Christopher Lloyd bugs out his eyes and p...

Reviewing the Interspecies Reviewers

Interspecies Reviewers the TV anime was a fun and thought-provoking series, but it only seems that way if you are in a certain contextual zone. The executive summary is not too much more than that a fantasy RPG-type universe group of adventurers got a side gig as brothel reviewers, and crowdfunded their escapades using some funky bulletin board distribution system powered by centaurs. Fantasy Brothel Yelp is not what I had in mind when I first watched this, and it suddenly dawned on me ...

Monster Movie ‘Don’t Go in the Water’ Coming From ‘Watchmen’ Director Stephen Williams

Stephen Williams, whose directing credits include episodes of Watchmen, The Walking Dead, Lost, and more, is set to helm Universal’s new monster movie Don’t Go in the Water. There are zero plot details at the moment, but it’s safe to assume from the monster movie distinction and the title that this is going to be some sort of aquatic horror movie – and we could always use more of those. Variety has the scoop on Don’t Go in the Water, described simply as a “suspenseful monster movie” from dir...

Update: A source close to these proceedings has reached out to clarify that Eko’s injunction is not intended to stop Quibi’s launch, but is rather the next step in the company’s court filing.

Quibi’s launch will proceed as planned, but we’ll be keeping our eye on these court cases as they develop. Our original article follows.

Quibi, the mobile-only streaming platform which has full backing from every major Hollywood studio and tons of big-name filmmakers and performers signed on to star in shows and movies, is supposed to launch next Monday, April 6, 2020.

Disney Buys More Land in Florida West of Magic Kingdom

Even though The Walt Disney Company is laying off construction workers and keeping its theme parks closed in the short term due to the coronavirus crisis, the Mouse House is still playing the long game when it comes to the theme park business.

But what exactly will the company use its new land for? The Orlando Busines...

Original Content podcast: ‘Star Trek: Picard’ launches with a bumpy, memorable season

Star Trek TV shows generally take a while to get good — but if any of them was going to have a strong start, you’d think it’d be “Star Trek: Picard.” After all, it returns Patrick Stewart to the role that made him famous, that of onetime Starfleet captain Jean-Luc Picard. Plus, the writing team was led by Michael Chabon, author of beloved novels like “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay” and “The Yiddish Policemen’s Union.” (He also wrote a lovely New Yorker piece about writing for Star Tr...
