Funimation Alters Bofuri Joke Scene

Aside from trying to push the dialogue of anime in the direction of their “superior political alignment”, the highly corrupt Funimation has now made a rather senseless change to dialogue for a scene in the innocent Itai no wa Iya nano de Bougyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu. The scene in question takes place in […]

Funimation Alters Sexy Bofuri Joke Scene

Aside from trying to push the dialogue of anime in the direction of their “superior political alignment”, the highly corrupt Funimation now seemingly has a problem with slightly lewd jokes, as they have changed the dialogue for a scene in the innocent Itai no wa Iya nano de Bougyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu.

Cool Stuff: Andy Fairhurst’s ‘Back to the Future’ Trilogy Print Set Goes Back in Time

There are countless art prints for Back to the Future out there in the world, many of them for the original movie that introduced us to Marty McFly, Doc Brown and the time traveling DeLorean. But as a fan of the  whole trilogy from director Robert Zemeckis, what I really like is when an artist creates a set of posters that represents the entire franchise with unifying imagery. Artist Andy Fairhurst has teamed up with Bottleneck Gallery for a new Back to the Future trilogy print set that satisfi...

Netflix Developing ‘Cocaine Hippos’, a Movie About What Happened to Drug Kingpin Pablo Escobar’s Zoo Animals

I don’t know about you, but when I see the words “cocaine” and “hippos” next to each other, I pay attention. And when the context is that a major company is developing a movie called Cocaine Hippos, I perk up even more. So Netflix certainly has my attention with its new upcoming comedy, which, oddly enough, is based on a true story. In the 1980s, notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar demanded that a group of exotic animals be brought in to populate the grounds of his estate as part of his own...

‘Emma.’ Review: An Ultra-Stylish Jane Austen Adaptation as Sharp as Its Punctuation Mark

It’s often overlooked how adept a satirist Jane Austen was, with most adaptations of the English literary icon’s works favoring the swooning romances and feminist themes of her novels. But more than any other past adaptation, barring the wildly underrated and wildly funny Love & Friendship, Emma. captures that tongue-in-cheek and whip-smart tone of Austen’s work. “Emma Woodhouse: handsome, clever, and rich,” the film declares right at the outset, quoting Austen’s opening words of her 1815 no...

Handling hecklers: Lessons from a comedian

Not every audience member who speaks out during a comedy show is a heckler. But there's a way to test the waters without upsetting your audience, says comedian Paul F. Tompkins.By engaging in a civil way with the person who spoke out, you either give them an opportunity to add more fun to the show, or they'll reveal their true colors.If the person ends up being a heckler after you've attempted including them in the conversation, the audience will be on your side when you shut that person down.

Paul Feig on the ‘Last Christmas’ Twist, Playing With Genre, And How ‘Freaks and Geeks’ is the Template for ‘Dark Army’ [Interview]

Paul Feig was not happy that the internet guessed the twist in Last Christmas. But sometimes, in the words of the great George Michael, you gotta have faith.
