‘Brockmire’: Watch Hank Azaria Discover the Terrifying World of Asmr YouTube Videos

‘Brockmire’: Watch Hank Azaria Discover the Terrifying World of Asmr YouTube Videos
When you’re a famous baseball announcer who’s fallen from glory, you’ll do anything to get back on top… including impressions of animated cats and experimenting with Asmr.

This is where we find Hank Azaria’s Jim Brockmire in this week’s episode, “Breakout Year.” In a bid to keep himself in the cultural conversation — and maintain the value of his name — the former professional baseball commentator voices a cat named “Jim Brockmeower” and then learns about a niche market with big viewership on YouTube.

In the clip below, Brockmire — with the help of techno-savy intern Charles (Tyrel Jackson Williams) — shows just how far he’ll go (and where he won’t) in a sharp, funny snippet from the latest episode.

Sleeping With Other People – The Review

Sleeping With Other People is a forgettable, by-the-numbers romantic comedy that relies on tiresome clichés and unfunny sex jokes. The newest from writer/director Leslye Headland opens at Columbia University in 2002 where students Jake (Jason Sudeikis) and Lainey (Alison Brie) lose their virginity to each other one night. Jump ahead 13 years and horndog Jake is reintroduced having an angry confrontation with his current girlfriend over his serial inability to stay committed. Meanwhile, Lainey is having an affair with Matt Sovochek (Adam Scott), now a gynecologist married to pregnant Emma (Katherine Waterston). After over a decade of not having contact with one another, Jake and Lainey reconnect at a sex addiction support group meetings. They suddenly become platonic best friends, venting their frustrations over their sexual and romantic lives while falling for each other in the process.

I suppose the audience is expected to laugh at the assumed outrageousness of all the explicit dialog about sex,

23 High School Movies That Get The Passing Grade

Considering it's where most of us (bar the weird home-schooled kids) spend our crucial formative years, where we have our first fights, our first loves, our first tentative steps into adulthood, it's no surprise that high school has long been a popular setting for movies. A range of genres (though generally leaning towards comedy) have taken place in those hallways, particularly from the 1980s onwards, when John Hughes, among others, made an entire career out of the lives and loves of 15-18 year olds.

The latest film to head back to class is "21 Jump Street" (review here) the big-screen reboot of the '80s TV show, which stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as youthful-looking cops who are sent back to high school in order to bust a drug-running ring. While you might assume this to be another lazy remake, you'd be very wrong, as Tatum, Hill, co-writer Michael Bacall,

Cinema Showdown: December 24-26

Well, as most of you probably noticed, there was no Cinema Showdown last week. An error in the posting system, and my general lack of energy to write the whole thing all over again, was the cause of it. However, I think writing one of these on Christmas Eve more than makes up for it, don’t you?

You also may notice that this week’s Showdown is organized different than usual. Hopefully, this new system of classification will make it much easier to read and clearer to understand. Anyways, I’ve blabbered on long enough, and I think it’s time we get into some film! This week is pretty busy, with a western, a raunchy comedy, and a family movie all competing for box office dominance. But which one’s worth your time and, more importantly, money this weekend? That’s right, everyone: It’s time for another Cinema Showdown!

'Mrs. Doubtfire' Dresses In Drag For Today's Sick Day Stash

Call them "cult classics." "Guilty pleasures." "Comfort movies." We all have a mental rolodex of flicks that may not be terribly popular but, for one reason or another, they resonate in a very special way. Maybe you saw it at the right moment. Maybe you just see gold where everyone else sees feces. Whatever the case, these are the special favorites that you keep stashed away for sick days. Here are some of ours.

by Rya Backer

Basically, the best movie in the history of the world is “Mrs. Doubtfire.” I mean, I like “good” movies, too (“This Is Spinal Tap,” “Being There,” “Annie Hall,” “Taxi Driver,” – what I’m trying to say is that I’m well-rounded and know enough about the art of filmmaking), but in the land of celluloid, only one feature film can be king. And that feature film clocks in at just over 120 minutes, most
