'Wilson' Review: Woody Harrelson Nearly Saves Sentimental-Crank Cringe-Comedy

11 hours ago

Woody Harrelson is the life of this party, based on the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes, the indie-comics legend whose work has inspired one film landmark in 2001's Ghost World (forget Art School Confidential). Wilson is not in that movie's league by a long shot, though you couldn't imagine a better interpreter of Clowes' world than Harrelson. That mischief in the actor's eyes keeps us intrigued by the film's title character, a neurotic grouch who rails against the Internet and other plagues of the modern age. Wilson also hates people – his main enjoyment, »

James Corden imagined the horrific ambitions of President Donald Trump and his administration in a parody of Matilda's "When I Grow Up" on The Late Late Show Monday. The performance featured Matilda composer Tim Minchin as Trump, Broadway star Ben Platt as Sean Spicer, actress Abigail Spencer as Kellyanne Conway and Corden as Steve Bannon.

'Feud': How Ryan Murphy's Hollywood-Diva Miniseries Rips Celebrity Apart

21 March 2017 7:55 AM, PDT

Fame – it's a hell of a drug. Feud is like watching Robert De Niro and Al Pacino square off in Heat, except with two of Hollywood's living legends playing a couple of dead ones. In Ryan Murphy's new anthology series, Jessica Lange is Joan Crawford to Susan Sarandon's Bette Davis, a pair of toxic movie divas madly in hate with each other. As Davis famously snipped, "She has slept with every male star at MGM, except Lassie." This eight-episode fever dream celebrates how they basically invented the modern celebrity beef, »

Watch 'Colbert Report' Return to Slam Trump's Budget

21 March 2017 7:15 AM, PDT

Stephen Colbert reprised his role as the conservative pundit from The Colbert Report on The Late Show on Monday night. In this guise, he analyzed President Trump's recently proposed budget, satirizing the motivations behind the President's decision to cut funding for Meals on Wheels, a program that delivers food to the elderly. 

"The primary goal of Trump's budget is not driving Cheetos to grandpa after he gets the munchies from his glaucoma pot," Colbert asserted during the latest "Werd" segment. "It's defending America. And these food-addicted seniors haven't killed any members of Isis. »

21 March 2017 6:14 AM, PDT

T.I. and Ice-t traded verses on the latest installment of "Mash-Up Mondays" on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Performing as "Ice-t.I." the pair combined Ice-t's 1991 track, "O.G. Original Gangster" and T.I.'s 2004 hit, "Bring Em Out."

Ice-t opened the performance with a blistering introduction, but quickly ceded the stage to T.I., who spit the opening verse of "Bring Em Out" seamlessly over the funky old school groove of "O.G." Ice-t then wove the silky bars of "O.G." through the hard-hitting "Bring Em Out" beat, while T.I. sat »

Ranking Amazon's 2017 Spring Pilots: The Good, the Bad and the Genuinely Wtf

20 March 2017 7:44 AM, PDT

Another season, another batch of Amazon pilots – it's the gift that keeps on giving. In the spirit of a true democracy (feel free to add your own cynical popular-vote joke here), the streaming service will offer up a number of first episodes for maybe-possibly future shows. The audience gets to decide what series should get full orders. You may get the next Transparent; you may get a burning pile of trash. Regardless, it's the viewer who gives these would-be TV classics the thumbs up, thumbs down, or sideways-thumbs-across-the-throat gesture. You »

Watch John Oliver Compare Trump Budget Cuts to America's 'End Credits'

20 March 2017 6:28 AM, PDT

On Sunday's Last Week Tonight, John Oliver analyzed President Trump's federal budget proposal, which boosts military and defense spending while reducing or eliminating crucial federal programs like the Environmental Protection Agency. 

In response to a CNN clip with a scrolling list of departments that would face cuts under Trump's "skinny budget," the comedian likened the situation to the "end credits for America." "Thanks for helping us out, Agriculture Department," he cracked. "Hope you find a gig with the next country that rises from our ashes."

'The Walking Dead' Recap: Over the Hill

19 March 2017 7:05 PM, PDT

Have The Walking Dead's writers become convinced that fans won't want to see anything cool or exciting unless the heroes have hashed out their feelings first – at length, and in multiple scenes? Yes, for all of the gory walker-kills on display, the show is extremely, conspicuously talky. On occasion, however, the ponderousness pays off. In this week's episode – "The Other Side" –  Rosita and Sasha share a genuinely warm and moving moment, mere hours before they charge into the Sanctuary to their near-certain deaths. Neither character has really gotten the screen-time they deserve this season. »
