Season Two Trailer For YouTube Red’s ‘Buddy System’ Presents Alternate History For Rhett & Link

Reliable YouTube combo Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal, known collectively as Rhett & Link, famously met during the first day of first grade and have been friends ever since. What if, however, that encounter never happened? Would their beloved online video partnership still have come to pass? That's the question at the center of the second season of Rhett & Link's Buddy System, which will premiere on November 29.

The trailer for the new batch of Buddy System episodes presents an alternate history for its starring duo. After meeting as adults, they decide to become roommates. Despite the quirks of their respective personalities, their friendship blossoms.

Beyond the odd couple comedy at its core, the second season of Buddy System is expected to feature several musical numbers, as was the case with season one. It will also include a number of notable guest stars, include Tony Hale, Mayim Bialik, Rob Corddry, and Mary Lynn Rajskub.

‘The Simpsons’ Star Nancy Cartwright: 30 Years Later, Bart Simpson Has Become a Grandma — and a First-Time Filmmaker
It’s been a big year for “The Simpsons,” but an even bigger one for the voice of Bart Simpson.

Bart, Homer and the rest of the family first appeared on “The Tracey Ullman Show” 30 years ago, and the series is about to break another record with the most episodes of any scripted series in history (surpassing “Gunsmoke”).

Nancy Cartwright has also hit personal milestones, including her second Emmy nomination for voicing Bart Simpson. But over the course of the past year, she also became a grandmother – and a first-time filmmaker.

The Simpsons” has already been picked up for Seasons 29 and 30, guaranteeing Cartwright’s role as Bart until at least 2019 – and likely beyond. “Look what we’ve done. It’s unbelievable. It’s unfathomable,” she recently told IndieWire. “At 10 years they were saying, ‘Did you have any idea?’ and then 20 years, ‘Did you know?’ And now, another decade has gone

Paul Thomas Anderson’s Best Scenes, Ranked

Paul Thomas Anderson’s Best Scenes, Ranked
Paul Thomas Anderson is one of the most revered American filmmakers of the last 20 years in part because he’s so unclassifiable. Working in a range of genres while tackling subjects that skew from anger management to American capitalism, religion and porn, Anderson has built a filmography distinguished by its unpredictability — and the sheer originality he brings to each new effort. Beyond the stories that distinguish his movies are the many ways in which they immerse viewers in fully defined worlds.

Every Anderson movie is an absorbing experience loaded with strange, funny, and shocking moments, all of which speak to the agenda of an artist keen on pushing the medium beyond its most familiar forms.

Wilson Director Craig Johnson On Making Daniel Clowes’ Offbeat Film With Woody Harrelson

Daniel ClowesWilson is now playing in theaters across the country and hopefully, those who’ve had a chance to see it still have some questions about how the filmmakers and cast captured the tone of Clowes’ graphic novel so well. (It didn’t hurt that Clowes adapted it into a movie himself.)

It is director Craig Johnson’s third film, following 2009’s True Adolescents and 2014’s The Skeleton Twins, starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, which won a screenplay at Sundance that year.

In the movie, Woody Harrelson plays the title character, a cantankerous and unfiltered loner who tries hard to be social but ends up putting those he interacts with off. When he tries to reconnect with his ex-wife Pippy (Laura Dern), he finds out that he had a baby daughter she gave up for adoption. The two of them go look for their now teen daughter Claire

Wilson – Review

This week sees another comic book adaptation arrive at movie theatres, while the Lego Batman and Logan are still pulling audiences in at the multiplex. Ah, but this film is not another superhero slugfest (we’ll have three more of those from Marvel Studios, and two from Warner/DC by the year’s end). No this comes from the “upper classes” of illustrated narratives, those “serious and somber” graphic novels (kind of a “highfalutin'” moniker). Several prestige flicks have been based on such books, like The History Of Violence and The Road To Perdition (both earned Oscar noms). The “graphic artist” (hey, I’ll bet he’d prefer cartoonist) behind this new film is no stranger to cinema. Matter of fact, this is his third feature-length movie adaptation. The first was my personal favorite flick of 2001, the quirky Ghost World (no ectoplasmic apparitions, but a teenage Scarlett Johansson). Five years

Power Rangers Won’t Give Beauty And The Beast Much Trouble -- The Weekend Warrior

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

So we’re going to try something different this week, because the Weekend Warrior has been getting a little long in the tooth, and we’re worried that our busy readers may prefer shorter and more concise pieces. We’ll give this a try over the next few weeks and maybe I’ll write a little more when there’s a bigger movie opening.

Reese Witherspoon Pitches Ideas for 'Legally Blonde 3': Elle Woods 'Could Be In Prison'

"I think it would be kind of cool to see her 15 years later. Like, what's she doing now? What do you think? I don't know. But I need a good idea," Witherspoon said, before Corden offered up an idea of his own: that Elle Woods became the first female president of the United States.

"She could, yeah," the actress agreed. "She could be a Supreme Court Justice, or she could be a really great, powerful attorney... or she could be in prison!"

"She could be anything," Witherspoon added. "I don't know!"

TV Review: ‘24: Legacy’ on Fox

TV Review: ‘24: Legacy’  on Fox
Before you see a single frame of “24: Legacy,” you probably know what it’ll contain. A man will go on the run. Within the shadowy confines of the CTU, snarky techs and earnest intelligence officials will wonder about who to trust. There will be shoot-outs and chases. Whispery cellphone conversations will occur in every third scene.

“24: Legacy” takes all those basics and executes them with rote diligence, without adding anything in the way of inspiration or relevance (unless you count the occasional appearance of drones). Many of the elements added or altered in this incarnation of the franchise are forgettable at best and questionable at worst. All in all, this generally clunky reboot serves as reminder of just how much “24” owes the gravelly voice and dependable charisma of Kiefer Sutherland, who serves as an executive producer but does not star.

Without Sutherland as CTU agent Jack Bauer, and without ace supporting characters like Jack’s
