'Masterminds' Review: No Amount of 'SNL' Alumnae Can Save This Mess

10 hours ago

Any farce starring Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig can’t be a complete bust. And Masterminds, directed by Jared Hess, of Napoleon Dynamite infamy, gets in its comic licks – just not enough of them. There are enough facts in this script by trio Chris Bowman, Hubbel Palmer, and SNL scribe Emily Spivey to merit the billing, "based on a true story." Something this effing stupid must be true.

Galifianakis plays David Ghantt , a likable idiot from North Carolina who is desperate to win the affections of Kelly (Wiig), who works with him at Loomis Fargo. »

14 hours ago

Conan O'Brien and Kevin Hart hit the gym for a hilarious Conan segment on Thursday, sparring physically and verbally.

O'Brien, meanwhile, "ripped [his] whole ass" while unleashing several "pointless karate kicks."

'American Honey' Review: Teens Run Wild, Shia Labeouf Gets His Comeback

16 hours ago

"Steady as a preacher, free as a weed," goes the Lady Antebellum tune that gives filmmaker Andrea Arnold's teenage-island-of-misfit-toys road movie its title. You can see why those two things might be aspirations for Star (newcomer Sasha Lane), the teenager we first meet digging through the trash for food, grubby kid siblings in tow. Stability and liberation aren't things she comes across a lot. Her life is a wreck, her residence is a parody of Southern trashiness (ants on the counter, handsy stepdad in the living room, Dixie flag »

17 hours ago

Around the time that she was putting the finishing touches on her 2009 drama Fish Tank, English writer-director Andrea Arnold stumbled upon a 2007 New York Times piece about the desperate lives of "mag crews."

"I was gonna do it after Fish Tank," Arnold says. "Then, after I finished my next movie" – an adaptation of Emily Brontë's classic novel Wuthering Heights – "I wanted to get back to this. »

12 Great Guilty-Pleasure, Buried-Treasure TV Shows

18 hours ago

There are shows that have been justly lauded as the best the medium has to offer. And then there are those series that have been unjustly obscured by history ... for the moment. Some are cult faves that never crossed over; others were short-lived hits that didn’t get kissed by the rerun gods. And some were just plain trash. But as Oscar the Grouch used to sing, we love trash — anything dirty or dingy or dusty. Here are a dozen shows that didn't make our "100 Greatest TV Shows" list but damn, »

I, Robot: How 'Westworld' Went From Seventies Blockbuster to HBO Show

29 September 2016 12:00 PM, PDT

Few ideas survive the times that spawned them, but Westworld, the 1973 Michael Crichton movie about an Old West amusement park populated by lifelike robots, is good enough that Hollywood's been coming back to it for more than 40 years. The original film, which was MGM's biggest box-office success of the year, spawned a sequel and a short-lived TV series; talk of a remake had been floated around for years, with everyone from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Quentin Tarantino being namedropped around the project at various points.

10 TV Shows That Outstayed Their Welcome

29 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT

It's hard to walk away from a successful show; for every Breaking Bad or Seinfeld that goes out on top, many more stick around too long trying to milk it dry. Some of the greatest shows – even a few that made our mammoth "100 Greatest TV Shows" list – have hung around for an extra season or 12. Like these 10 series, for example.

'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' Review: Tim Burton Returns

29 September 2016 5:30 AM, PDT

Tim Burton is a wizard of odd. The best of his films take us into a world where anything is possible ... but the impossible is even better. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, based on Ransom Rigg's 2011 young-adult novel, is so crowded with incident that it sometimes seems in danger of imploding. But Burton has always had an affinity for the peculiar. so how could he resist Miss Peregrine? As played by the bracingly eccentric Eva Green (the Penny Dreadful star who worked with Burton in 2012's Dark Shadows), Miss »

'Deepwater Horizon' Review: Real-Life Disaster Movie Brings Compassion, Chaos

29 September 2016 5:30 AM, PDT

A salute is in order for Peter Berg – the man can direct a disaster movie like nobody's business. What strengthens Deepwater Horizon and raises the bar on the possibilities of the genre is that the story he tells is honestly and horrifyingly true. The film depicts the worst oil spill in American history when the Bp-leased deepwater drilling rig, owned by Transocean, exploded on April 20, 2010, some 35 miles off the Louisiana coast in the Gulf of Mexico. Amid the spray of mud, oil and environmental calamity, 11 lives were lost. Berg creates »
