1 hour ago

There’s no rule that says that you have to go see Star Wars: Episode VIII—The Last Jedi with the Fandango gift cards we’re giving away on The A.V. Club this weekend. You could go see Coco, which is still going strong in its fourth week—or at least it was, until The Last Jedi came out—or marvel at James Franco’s Tommy…

Famous nice guy Matt Damon puts all his bad harassment takes in one convenient place for people to check out

Matt Damon is famously one of Hollywood’s Nice Guys, a cheerfully smiling dude happy to pop in for a cameo for a friend or give helpful advice to younger co-stars. This week, for instance, he did the whole internet a solid, by giving an interview that got all of his uncomfortable takes on the current sexual harassment…

21 hours ago

Fresh off of scaring the shit out of us in Get Out, Catherine Keener is set to add another tally mark on her very niche list of sad puppeteer TV shows or films.

22 hours ago

While he’s best know for his appearances on Chappelle’s Show and his roles on Scandal and Dating Game Killer, Guillermo Díaz is also a huge Madonna fan.

14 December 2017 11:15 AM, PST

She’s Gotta Have It is too indecisive as it enters its final act

13 December 2017 11:30 PM, PST

One of the most infuriating things about She’s Gotta Have It is the show can’t decide if it wants to be an explicitly political and reactionary treatise on Black life in America or a soapy, sexy dramedy. Spike Lee has been able to balance the two. Jungle Fever is the classic example of Lee gradually turning a…

Designated Survivor goes through the motions

13 December 2017 9:48 PM, PST

For its mid-season finale, Designated Survivor makes a bold choice: to spin its wheels a bit while it patiently waits for the moment when it can kill somebody off. Unsurprisingly, it’s not a great approach. It’s hard to earn any sort of catharsis when the big emotional moments — Alex’s death and Hannah’s shooting of…

Netflix zaps new life into Sean Bean's The Frankenstein Chronicles

13 December 2017 1:21 PM, PST

Remember when new takes on Frankenstein were the hottest thing in the entertainment industry? It was after everybody was making Wizard Of Oz stuff, but it ended a few years ago when Fox decided to change the name of a show about a dead cop coming back to life from Frankenstein to The Frankenstein Code and then Second…

After beating Roy Moore, Doug Jones walked off to "Teach Me How To Dougie"

13 December 2017 12:01 PM, PST

If we’re all being honest, a lot of people didn’t really expect Doug Jones—a Democrat—to beat Republican Roy Moore—an accused pedophile—in Alabama’s special election this week to fill Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat. Someone within Team Jones must have kept the faith, though, because they cued up a pretty solid track to…

Familiarize Yourself With The Other Star Wars Canon With This Massive ComiXology Sale

13 December 2017 11:32 AM, PST

I was never a comic book person growing up, though I was and still am a Star Wars person. But there’s no sense in not digesting everything that has the Star Wars name on it for the sake of staying a purist. Some canonical literature is fan fodder, and some is really, really good. Find what you like during this massive Star Wars sale from…

Christopher Nolan walks you through the most terrifying scene in Dunkirk

13 December 2017 10:53 AM, PST

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk is one of the year’s best films, a propulsive World War II film that’s been celebrated by both critics and, well, people who were actually there. There’s plenty about it to praise—its score, for example—but on first watch it’s the urgency and intimacy Nolan cultivates that gives the film…

The hero of Dilbert is now Dilbert's boss

13 December 2017 10:30 AM, PST

Given that today’s “funnies” aren’t found in the papers so much as they are Twitter threads and listicles, a cartoon like Scott Adams’ workplace satire Dilbert probably isn’t something you’re still following. And, if Miles Wray’s new piece for The Awl is any indication, this is a very good thing. Sure, we knew that…

An FCC commissioner tells Jordan Klepper that The Opposition to net neutrality has fake names, Russian accents

12 December 2017 11:19 PM, PST

Now that America has got that whole “Jesus Christ, can we just not elect a lawless, bigoted pedophile to the U.S. Senate!” thing more or less taken care of, it’s time for anti-Trump forces to look for the next exhausting but necessary fight. On a Tuesday where the late-night hosts—who tape in the afternoon—had to…

Jake Tapper breaks Moore spokesman's brain by telling him you don't need a Bible to be sworn in to public office

12 December 2017 5:32 PM, PST

We take our moments of joy where we can get them these days, whether it’s an occasional bout of presidential mush-mouth, or an Alabama Republican going slack-jawed with horror at a concept that’s so clearly, painfully outside his worldview that it appears to be breaking his brain. That’s what viewers of CNN’s The Lead …

Hey, at least the pirates want to watch Louis Ck's I Love You, Daddy

12 December 2017 3:01 PM, PST

In a plot point that wouldn’t have felt out of place on Louie—back when we were in any way comfortable watching Louie, anyway—Louis Ck’s much maligned, largely unseen new film I Love You, Daddy has suffered yet another indignity, as the film—which was shelved after allegations of sexual misconduct on the filmmaker’s…

New Bright trailer introduces the greatest orc love song ever written

12 December 2017 1:24 PM, PST

David Ayer’s Bright comes to Netflix in only 10 days, but everybody seems more excited about some other big sci-fi/fantasy movie that you actually have to leave your house to see. That movie may have laser swords and bird creatures, but Bright has at least one thing it doesn’t have: A horrifying metal ballad that is…

Philip is the worst and it’s unclear if The Crown knows it

12 December 2017 12:00 PM, PST

It’s almost hard for me to believe that Peter Morgan penned both this episode and the previous one, as the difference in how Philip is written couldn’t be more drastic. In “A Company Of Men,” Philip was a complicated, flawed, nuanced figure who seemed to come to realize the error of his ways and set about trying to…

Guillermo Del Toro developing a remake of '40s carnival noir Nightmare Alley

12 December 2017 11:54 AM, PST

Guillermo Del Toro just dropped The Shape Of Water, one of his most critically acclaimed movies in years, but he seems like the sort of guy who enjoys having a huge stack of things to work on at all times. So, according to Variety, he has already lined up one of his many future projects: A remake of the 1947…
