Mario Cantone Nails Anthony Scaramucci Impression on 'The President Show'
18 hours ago
Where Melissa McCarthy's Sean Spicer ends, Mario Cantone's Anthony Scaramucci begins. On The President Show, the comedian donned a navy blue suit and powder blue tie offering his take on the White House's newest addition. Host Anthony Atamanuik's Trump introduced him as "my favorite new team member, who I will eventually betray." A schmaltzy Scaramucci took the stage behind the podium.
"I'm gonna fire so many people," Cantone-as-Scaramucci said, a nod to the Mooch's must-publicized New Yorker interview. "I don't know who it's gonna be, Reince, but »
'Brigsby Bear' Review: 'SNL' Vets' Quirk-Com Gives Us a Manchild With a Soul
18 hours ago
On a scale of one to Adam Sandler screaming, Kyle Mooney would rate a solid six on the comic manchild-o-meter. Watch the YouTube videos he shot with his old sketch group GoodNeighbor or his Saturday Night Live shorts (we recommend his ill-advised freestyle battle against Kanye West), and you'll see how he's carved out a tiny corner in the beta-male niche. The comedian can do delusional, full-frontal dude-ity, but his sweet spot is a shuffling, stammering awkwardness held over from early adolescence – the shy, just-south-of-geeky guy whose development isn't arrested »

"I was worried when Sean Spicer left that the communications office at the White House would lose some flavor.

22 hours ago
Can you build a whole animated feature about emojis living inside the smartphone of a teen named Alex (Jake T. Austin)? It's a stretch. But The Emoji Movie, expected to kill at the box-office and be killed by critics, has a few tricks up its animated sleeve. Before the jacked-up antics get to be too much, director Tony Leondis and co-writers Erich Siegel and Mike White get in a few satiric licks at a technology we've all come to call home.
The plot? It spins around Gene (voiced with twisted »

Already regarded as a master of horror fiction, the author proved just as adept at epic fantasy, telling a story about an archetypal western hero named Roland, on a quest through a mystical desert on a ravaged parallel Earth, in pursuit of a »

'Atomic Blonde' Review: Charlize Theron Literally Kicks Ass in 1980s Spy Thriller
26 July 2017 12:42 PM, PDT
Nobody does the spy thing better than Charlize Theron – and unlike 007, she does it in heels. Director David Leitch, a former stuntman who co-directed John Wick, makes sure his dynamite star stays untamed and is up for anything. Based on the graphic novel series The Coldest City by Antony Johnston, Sam Hart and Steven Perkins, Atomic Blonde is set in 1989, during the thawing of the Cold War and the last days of the Berlin Wall.
