William Zabka on Giving John Kreese a Second Chance in ‘Cobra Kai’ Season 2 [Interview]

Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) was the villain of The Karate Kid . Sure, he had a bad influence in John Kreese (Martin Kove), but Johnny was the one Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) had to defeat at the All Valley Karate Tournament. Cobra Kai reinvented the movie series with Johnny as the hero, or at least a co-protagonist with a middle-aged Daniel.

But there are many moviegoers out there who are less than satisfied with Hollywood’s love affair with the film.

The Oscars (2019)

After an embattled few months beset with controversy, the Oscars have finally arrived. For reasons beyond understanding, I do enjoy the show. Partly because I like movies, but mostly because it's fun to dunk on the Oscars. This sort of thing isn't unique to the Oscars, but this year seems especially ripe. This is partly due to the standard snubs and occasional recognition of poor art or the strange injection of political bickering into the arena (by which I mean internal Hollywood politics rathe...

Oscars 2019: Before you bet on the Academy Awards, you might want to read this

Here are my expert Oscar predictions. And my “expert” advice is: Don’t bet on anything this year! At least not in the Best Picture race. Yes, it’s been hard to predict that winner since the academy expanded the nomination count and introduced a preferential balloting system for the category about 10 years ago. But other factors make this one the biggest free-for-all Best Picture race of the decade. For one thing, all of the major Hollywood guilds have given their highest honors to different film...

‘Crashing’ Creator and Star Pete Holmes Discusses Last Night’s Timely Episode, “MC, Middle, and Headliner” [Interview]

Pete Holmes is more successful in season 3 of Crashing, but not much happier. The generally happy-go-lucky comedian is playing for churches and getting laughs, but he’s not performing like himself, worsening his struggle to find his voice or sense of self in the comedy world. Holmes – the character – hits some professional and personal lows this season. While the Judd Apatow-produced series often shows the joy and camaraderie in Holmes’ standup career, it’s usually about failure and not always ...

‘What Men Want’ Review: The Gender-Bent Remake Fumbles an Already Bad Premise

From the get-go, What Men Want feels like a relic. Even though it follows the current trend of gender-bent remakes, flipping a previously male-led film into one starring a female character, What Men Want astonishingly feels even more backwards than the 2000 Nancy Meyers film upon which it’s based. For a film that touts female empowerment and regularly throws around mentions to the “Me Too” movement, What Men Want is a shallow, retrograde workplace comedy that is barely funny. Taraji P. Henso...
