More Barnaby Coming!

The Barnaby comic strip by Crockett Johnson (Harold and the Purple Crayon) is amazingly creative. Fantagraphics began bringing this 1940s classic to modern readers in 2013. As I said in my review of volume 1 (which reprints strips from 1942-1943), Barnaby is a typical boy who’s visited by the world’s strangest Fairy Godfather. Mr. O’Malley wears a hat and trenchcoat and is never seen without his cigar (which he calls his magic wand). It’s unclear, at times, whether he’s really [...]

The Post's Smee on the NGA's Guston exhibit censorship

Dragon’s Dogma Sporting Plenty of Traumatic Monster Rape & Bare Breasts

Dragon’s Dogma has been ceaseless when it comes to delivering traumatic events and depressing moments as the Netflix show’s third episode reveals some new characters, with monster rape nearly taking place, though some may be disappointed to learn that the protagonist aggravatingly intervenes. The hero’s deed doesn’t go completely unrewarded however (and, perhaps as recompense, […]

Bravo to a Very Late Kickstarter: Reality Check

One of the reasons I have been very pessimistic in the past about Kickstarters and crowdfunding is how some projects never deliver. I’ve got a few on my tracking list that have been there, undelivered, for years. Don’t get me wrong, many people are responsible, but the ones that aren’t are the ones that stick in people’s minds, and poison the well for others. So I want to congratulate Rikki Simons and Tavisha Wolfgarth-Simons. They funded a reprint collection of [...]

Hololive Addresses Akai Haato & Kiryuu Coco’s October 19th Return

Hololive has delivered a statement ahead of the October 19th return of Akai Haato and Kiryuu Coco, explaining that they are working to better educate their talents about what they can and cannot say, unsurprisingly submitting to the anti free speech stance and likely done in an attempt to appease China for profit.

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein! (1948)

32 Days of Halloween XIIIMovie Night #19 Because one of the things you do when a franchise is running out of steam is mash it together with other franchises in the hopes that 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 =$$$. That being said, it’s hard to think of a better result than Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. You’re getting two of the original actors (all respect to Glenn Strange, who would Frankenstein Monster as many times as Karloff) plus you’re getting the comedy duo in rare form. And while the p...

‘Borat 2’ Aims to Expose the Danger of Authoritarianism Through Comedy, Says Sacha Baron Cohen

Next week, Amazon brings us the surprise Borat sequel that we only just learned about barely a month ago. There’s no better time for Kazakhstan’s most famous reporter to come back to America, but this time comedian Sacha Baron Cohen hoped to achieve something different than he did the first time around.

‘Saturday Night Live’ Gives Issa Rae Far Too Little Screen Time in a Mostly Subpar Episode

Issa Rae was meant to host Saturday Night Live back in the spring, before coronavirus shut down production on the sketch show in the studio. But Lorne Michaels brought her back to make good on their original plans. Unfortunately, this meant she was forced to host an episode where political satire is taking up the space of three sketches, giving her far fewer opportunities to shine throughout the night. Even the sketches that managed to include her didn’t make use of her comedic potential, which...

Another way to “give back”

We often pat ourselves on the back for how virtuous we are in providing public service. As opportunities for public service communications continues to shrink, however, I’d like for us to think of other ways that we can give back to our communities. Such an opportunity recently presented itself here in Ann Arbor. A group calling itself Tinkered Toy Box put out a call for folks with soldering experience. This group is a collaboration between Mott Children’s Hospital and the Washtenaw Intermediate...

‘Mr. Mercedes’ Featurette: The Stephen King Series is Now on Peacock

Mr. Mercedes is not a new show. But Peacock is sure treating it like one. The Stephen King-inspired series originally aired its first three seasons on Audience Network, and if you’re reading that and thinking, “What the hell is Audience Network?”, you’re not alone! In fact, the channel doesn’t even exist anymore. It was discontinued in May of 2020. Audience’s loss is Peacock’s gain, as the free streaming service is now making all three seasons available. There’s no word on a fourth season yet, ...

Robert Palmer Watkins in Mystery Action Film 'Last Three Days' Trailer

"Jack - you don't look so good." Brotherhood Studios has released an official trailer for an indie action film titled Last Three Days, a mysterious sort-of-sci-fi crime drama starring Robert Palmer Watkins. This is being released direct-to-VOD without any other premiere before, and it looks like straight-to-bargain-bin mediocre. Mixed up with a dangerous crime syndicate, an undercover cop wakes up to find he's missing his partner, his wife, and the last three days of his life. What caused th...
