The 1978 Project: Arbitrary Awards

The 1978 Project edition of the Kaedrin Movie Awards were finished off last week. The idea is to recognize aspects of films that aren’t reflected in more traditional awards or other praise like a Top 10 list. However, any awards system will fail to capture all the nuances and complexity available; hence the Arbitrary Awards, an opportunity to commend movies that are weird or flawed in ways that don’t conform to normal standards. A few of these “awards” have become an annual tradition, but most a...

‘Mother Schmuckers’ Review: This Deranged, Belgian Beavis and Butt-Head Flounders in Frenetic Filth [Sundance 2021]

Mother Schmuckers marks the first time a Belgian film is playing in the Midnight section of the Sundance Film Festival. Normally, this section is a great place to find unsettling horror and/or twisted dark comedy, and while the debut film from directing duo Harpo & Lenny Guit delivers both, the problem is that the comedy is, well, horrific. What starts as an amusingly immature madcap quest across Brussels for food and a lost dog takes an unnecessarily inappropriate turn into scandalous incivili...

‘Belushi’ Trailer: The Life of Comedic Force John Belushi is Explored By Those Who Knew Him Best

Following a deep dive into the history and legacy of The Comedy Store, Showtime has another chronicle of a comedy staple who left us far too soon. John Belushi was a tour de force. After breaking out on Saturday Night Live and National Lampoon’s Animal House, Belushi became one of the biggest comedy stars in the world. He was the kind of guy everyone wanted to have a beer with. But while there was this wrecking ball of comedic energy on the outside, on the inside, Belushi was dealing with his o...

Would you shop your neighbour? The rule of six will expose everyone’s true nature

Priti Patel will phone the police if her neighbours break the rule; Boris Johnson will do it if they are caught frolicking in a hot tub. Truth is, you’re either the kind of person who has a hotline to the authorities, or you’re notBoris Johnson has advised us not to grass up our neighbours unless they are having an “Animal House party”. On the headlines, I was unclear whether the prime minister meant a party as large as the ones in Animal House, or a party to which many animals have been invited...

Police back Boris Johnson over 'no snitching' on neighbours over rule of six

Policing chiefs have backed Boris Johnson over his “no snitching” appeal as they say reporting your neighbours for breaches of the “rule of six” will fuel “animosity.” The Prime Minister appeared to put himself at odds yesterday with Home Secretary Priti Patel when he urged people to speak with rule breakers before notifying the authorities. "I have never much been in favour of sneak culture, myself,” he said, although he accepted it would be reasonable if it was “some huge kind of Animal House ...

The Zombie Mueller Case That Just Won’t Die

It was the case that was never supposed to go anywhere. When special counsel Robert Mueller first unveiled a federal grand jury indictment against several Russian individuals and entities accused of using social media to manipulate the 2016 election, the conventional wisdom was that none of the defendants would ever show up in court to fight the case. The purpose of the 2018 charges, observers suggested, was to inform the public about the social media meddling, and to put Russia on notice tha...
