Your Kentucky Derby pop culture party planner: Because you need something else to do besides watch horses run for two minutes

Your Kentucky Derby pop culture party planner: Because you need something else to do besides watch horses run for two minutes
Old sports writers (mainly Pardon the Interruption host and professional crank Tony Kornheiser) like to remind anybody listening that for most of the pre-World War II era, the biggest sports in America were baseball, boxing, and horse racing.

If you really want to get your 1930s on this weekend, you’ll have that chance: The baseball season is in full swing (Let’S Go Mets!), there’s a huge title fight in the boxing world between Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto, and on Saturday evening, the 138th running of the Kentucky Derby begins.

The Kentucky Derby is an excellent excuse for a party,

SXSW Dialogue: Bobcat Goldthwait on Failing, Rush Limbaugh, Useless 3D and His Upcoming '80s Horror Movie

I was always a Bobcat Goldthwait fan so it never surprised me when he started making unique indie movies. Of course as a kid I liked the Police Academy series where his character went from bad guy to new recruit and citizen on patrol. I even liked the talking horse movie Hot to Trot. I sought him out at my local small town comedy club to hear his irreverent standup, about the then big news of videotaped police beatings and heroin chic. Goldthwait’s latest film is God Bless America, the story of disgruntled cubicle grunt Frank (Joel Murray) and teenager Roxy (Tara Lynne Barr) on a killing spree. Their targets are the mean people who make society worse, the music show judges making fun of bad singers, the Super Sweet entitled teenagers, and shock jocks. The film sold out of the...

Bobcat Goldthwait’s God Bless America Trailer

After rising to fame as a stand-up comedian in the 1980s and starring in several '80s comedies including the Police Academy series, Scrooged, and Hot to Trot, Bobcat Goldthwait re-invented himself as a director in the early '90s with Shakes the Clown. He waited another decade before directing his next film, but now he seems to be focusing his career almost exclusively on being a filmmaker. His 2009 flick World's Greatest Dad starring Robin Williams was probably his most well-received film to date, and now he has returned with another dark comedy entitled God Bless America. The premise almost seems like a cross between James Gunn's Super and Mike Judge's Idiocracy. A 45-year-old man named Frank (played by Joel Murray) snaps one day after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. He has been witnessing all the stupidity surrounding him until finally his rage boils over and he

This Week In Trailers: Jiro Dreams of Sushi, A Separation, Lads and Jockeys, The Kick, Redline
Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers? Jiro Dreams of Sushi Trailer Is it nutty that this is the kind of trailer that makes me love documentaries as an art form? No

Bobcat Goldthwait's Next Movie Will Kill The Kids Of MTV's My Super Sweet 16

It.s a shame, but probably still true, that most people still know Bobcat Goldthwait best as that comedian from the 80s with the funny voice, or maybe as that little guy who was in Hot to Trot. But quietly, while nobody was looking, Bobcat has actually turned himself into a legitimate Hollywood director. His 2009 movie World.s Greatest Dad starred longtime friend Robin Williams, and received a surprising amount of critical acclaim, especially for a movie about a dad dealing with his son.s death by auto erotic asphyxiation. Now he.s on to his next edgy, offensive, possibly really good project. He.s talked before about several different ideas which he wanted to turn into features, but it sounds like this one, a movie called God Bless America, is the one that.s getting funding. It.s backed by Richard Kelly.s Darko Pictures and in an appearance

Item #1 - How The Earth Was Made

I really was a bad student in high school. Not horrible in the classical sense but I was absolutely a C student and I couldn’t grasp mathematical or scientific in ways that made me wonder if I was functionally retarded.

Smash cut to college and one of the very first classes I took my first semester was Geology 101. Kid you not, it was really brutal. Theories on geological formations, how earth’s natural functioning is a result from eons of slow and steady processes, why Illinois is so damn flat (glaciers!

Item #1 - How Bruce Lee Changed The World

For those of us who love Bruce Lee’s influence on modern Asian cinema you’ve probably seen many incarnations of program in some form or another. Like an 80’s DJ who is ultimately limited by the fact that there is a finite number of tracks they can play, there seems to have been so much overlap with footage we’ve seen with regard to the man who was wickedly charismatic and destined for far more than we were given.

Thankfully, as I watched How Bruce Lee Changed The World,
