It is with a heavy heart that we report some dissatisfaction with the movie title Solo

2 hours ago

There are slim chances of titling a Star Wars movie in a manner that will please all or even most of its many, many fans, but just calling the Han Solo movie Solo is still pretty gobsmacking. That Han Solo’s last name directly implied his raffish, go-it-alone nature was always the type of thing you didn’t want to look…

Charlyne Yi accuses David Cross of being racist toward her

3 hours ago

Earlier this week, actress, musician, and Paper Heart writer Charlyne Yi tweeted about her first meeting with David Cross, who she says was casually racist in a way that left her on “the verge of tears.” Yi, who’s also a poet and comedian, wrote that when she met Cross 10 years ago, he made fun of her clothes and then…

In this week’s Savage Love: Parental controls

11 hours ago

My only child is 16 years old. He was curious about sex from a very young age and very open with me, so his interest in sexual matters gave me ample opportunity to talk with him about safety and consent. He went through a cross-dressing phase when he was small—mostly wanting to wear nail polish and try on mascara—and…

The Menendez Murders misses the mark by using trauma as a mere plot point

15 hours ago

While it may run contrary to the label, the success of any true crime show hinges on how it digs into the psychology of its main characters. The crime itself is only a secondary thought, a necessary bit of plotting that paces the insights into character. With most true crime narratives we know what’s going to happen…

A more lighthearted Barry is still kind of a jerk on The Flash

17 hours ago

With all the expository throat-clearing out of the way, the powers that be are ready to deliver on their promise of digging The Flash out of the darkness. “Mixed Signals” is a big step in that direction, as it plays up the fun and wackiness of life with the Fastest Man Alive, but it doesn’t quite solve the show’s…

We have a few questions about Ivanka Trump's "punk phase"

18 hours ago

In her mom Ivana’s new memoir Raising Trump, Ivanka Trump describes what she refers to as her “punk phase.” It didn’t involve protesting, or blasting Dead Kennedys records in her room, or chartering a private jet to London to walk in the footsteps of the Sex Pistols and The Clash. No, it involved dyeing her hair blue…

Riz Ahmed casts himself as Hamlet in "contemporary" Netflix adaptation

22 hours ago

When your Hollywood career is officially super hot, like if you just appeared in a Star Wars movie and became the first man of Asian descent to ever win an acting Emmy, you can do pretty much whatever you want. Riz Ahmed happens to be in that very specific position, and while he’s still got this heat, he’s apparently…

Breaking: There's a goddamn cow running around in Brooklyn right now

17 October 2017 9:44 AM, PDT

Because the news cycle and, indeed, life itself is an unceasing parade of humiliation and despair, we must occasionally turn our attention—all at once, suddenly and fully—upon an animal. A dog walking into the room at a party, a llama running loose on the freeway, a cat crawling into your lap—these are the few moments…

The Daily Show kicks off Chicago week by calling bullshit on Trump's race-baiting Chicago-bashing

16 October 2017 10:29 PM, PDT

Opening a week of shows at Chicago’s Athenaeum Theatre called “The Daily Show Undesked Chicago 2017: Let’s Do This Before It Gets Too Damn Cold,” Daily Show host Trevor Noah broke out his standup shoes in a monologue that called out the manner in which that city is routinely used as Donald Trump and Fox News’…

Nicolas Winding Refn is launching his own streaming service

16 October 2017 4:31 PM, PDT

Based on his movies, Nicolas Winding Refn seems like a man with very particular tastes. Drive, for instance, seems like a straightforward car chase movie about a quiet guy in a cool jacket, but it’s more of an homage to retro European action flicks than it is an artsy take on The Fast And The Furious. For people…

Trump makes hilarious joke about Mike Pence wanting to hang gay people

16 October 2017 1:42 PM, PDT

Because we can’t even have a spiteful daydream in this smoking ruin of a year without having reality come in to complicate it, as delicious as the schadenfreude over Donald Trump’s impeachment would be, the fact of the matter is that we’d be stuck with a President Pence at the end of it. And while Pence probably…

Newt Gingrich previews his futuristic moon language with typo-packed tweet

16 October 2017 1:18 PM, PDT

One of the main messages that prominent Republicans are required to try and push on the American people is that Donald Trump is a smart person who fully understands every single thing going on in the world today, despite the fact that he is clearly a major dummy who couldn’t understand his way out of a paper bag.…

Glenn and Pam's budding romance drives an enjoyable Last Man On Earth

15 October 2017 8:15 PM, PDT

If you caught the Family Guy episode that preceded tonight’s Last Man On Earth, you know they made a little joke at this show’s expense. After originally being a show that focused on, well, the last man on earth, the show’s cast has expanded considerably since it debuted in 2015, and has now become an ensemble…

Russell's birthday party is the only excuse Vice Principals needs to get ridiculous

15 October 2017 8:10 PM, PDT

Russell is a fragile man who can’t catch a break. Perhaps that’s karma, as the universe offsets all of his toxic nonsense and unrelenting cruelty with moments that make him cower in fear and frustration. No matter the reasons, be they spiritual or just plain bad luck, it’s clear that Russell’s path in the second…

The Deuce follows the money and secures its place as The Wire’s rightful heir

15 October 2017 7:00 PM, PDT

“Payoff” is the long con of serialized television. Anybody who’s watched a show that’s trying to be the next Breaking Bad, the next Mad Men, the next Sopranos, hell, the next Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, has felt the cheat. You give the show regular installments of your time, be they in weekly allotments or in big,…
