Franklin & Bash Is the Perfect Punch Line to Your Pop-Culture Joke

13 August 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This piece originally ran in July 2013. We are republishing it as a new season of Franklin & Bash kicks off. There are three kinds of pop-culture punch lines — by which I mean an actor, band, movie, or TV show that is regularly used as an all-purpose kicker to jokes. Type 1: The very successful person or piece of art that is deemed ridiculous by those who consider themselves to have "good taste." Examples: Two and a Half Men, Dane Cook, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Nickelback, Twilight, reality television. Type 2: The huge, high-profile bomb, often synonymous with the Hollywood’s hubris: Gigli, Ishtar, Battlefield Earth. And then there is the third type, the rarest type of punch line. Something in this category is neither wildly popular nor a huge disaster. It’s not so good it’s bad or so bad it’s good. It’s something in which every element, »

Planes 2: Fire & Rescue review - Better than its predecessor

8 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Roberts Gannaway; Screenwriter Jeffrey M Howard ; Starring: Dane Cook, Ed Harris, Julie Bowen, Curtis Armstrong, Teri Hatcher, John Michael Higgins, Patrick Warburton, Wes Studi; Running time: 84 mins; Certificate: U

After Planes flew into cinemas last summer and proved to be a crushing disappointment, it's probably fair to say that nobody is getting particularly hyped up for its sequel, Fire & Rescue. Perhaps these rock-bottom expectations are a good thing, because Planes 2 feels like a significant upgrade on its distinctly run-of-the-mill predecessor, which was initially going to be a direct-to-dvd release before it found its way onto the big screen.

Dane Cook returns to voice Dusty Crophopper, who this time around sees his racing career shot to pieces when he discovers a fault in his gearbox. This immediately creates a search for purpose and meaning more compelling than anything in Planes - what's more heartbreaking, chasing a dream or coming »

Planes 2: Fire and Rescue Review

5 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Dusty Crophopper is back for a brand new adventure, and this time it’s a blockbuster. Faced with the dual threats of an early end to his racing career and Propwash Junction’s closure, Dusty and his ailing torque gauge fly west to Piston Peak National Park to train as a firefighter. Thunderclouds recall military aircraft as towns and valleys with ingenious engine details unfurl below him and beckon him on his way. Toby Wilson and team’s sumptuous animation is as characterful and joyous as the tiny craft ought to be. Drawing heavily on Top Gun themes of arrogance, loss and redemption, this summer holiday release aims high but stalls before breaking cloud cover.

On arrival at the Air Attack Base Dusty (Dane Cook) tries his best to assimilate with the team. However, the resentment of his trainer Blade Ranger (Ed Harris sounding pleasingly like Billy Bob Thornton) coupled »

10 Comics to Watch: Pete Davidson Hits Fast Track With Nick Cannon

22 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Still not old enough to buy beer, Pete Davidson delivered his first routine at age 16 after hours of watching other comics on stage.

“I only had like one friend in high school, so I wasn’t invited to the parties on the weekends. So instead of going to parties, I just went to comedy clubs,” says the Staten Island native, who found himself experimenting with his own material at open mic nights, learning as he went.

Davidson’s big break came after landing appearances on MTV’s “Guy Code” and Nick Cannon-fronted “Wild ’N Out,” which gave him a chance to try sketch work as well.

“I owe a lot to Nick Cannon, who took me on the road with him when I was 17. I learned a lot about the business of standup, TV and film from him. He’s been a positive influence even now. »

'Apes' Kill 'The Purge' At Slow Weekend Box Office

20 July 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

All challengers fell under the mighty force of Andy Serkis in motion capture pajamas.

It was a battle of sequels this weekend, with returning champion Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes throwing down against The Purge: Anarchy. However, despite a commendably strong showing from The Purge, it still couldn't take down the mighty force of Andy Serkis's ape army.

While horror fans have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of The Purge: Anarchy – the film that capitalizes on the brilliant premise that all crime is legal for one night of the year, which was established in the first film and then immediately squandered on a mediocre home invasion plot – watching psychos murder each other in the streets of La didn't carry as much water as watching psycho primates murder humans all across the country.
