‘Everything Sucks!’ Trailer: Netflix Gets Nostalgic For The ’90s

I was hoping I could get through the rest of my life without hearing Mighty Mighty Bosstones‘ “The Impression That I Get.” Alas, I was wrong, as Netflix —having found ’80s nostalgia success with “Stranger Things” — is now coming for the ’90s with “Everything Sucks!“. Alanis Morissette and “Beavis and Butt-head” references abound, from a cast that certainly wasn’t born when those things existed.

Film Review: ‘Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie’

Film Review: ‘Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie’
The world of mainstream animated comedy, in case you hadn’t noticed, has been regressing to infantile states of being. Last year we had “Storks,” a light kiddie fantasy about how newborns get delivered; earlier this year, there was “The Boss Baby,” in which a glowering infant tyrant traded in his diapers for a corporate power suit and attitude to match. Now, the reversion to what Sigmund Freud — or maybe it was Adam Sandler — diagnosed as the 5-year-old funny bone reaches its apotheosis in “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie,” a high-spirited, low-comedy adaptation of the first of Dav Pilkey’s hugely popular series of children’s novels. (It was published in 1997, and in the years since there have been 11 sequels and three spinoffs, which have sold a combined 50 million copies in the U.S. alone.) Parents: Are you ready to hold your nose and giggle?

The MTV Movie & TV Awards: A New Gender Revolution?

The MTV Movie & TV Awards: A New Gender Revolution?
For much of its 35-year history, MTV has lit the way. You may not have always liked where it led, but what’s undeniable is how much it has danced on the cutting edge of youth culture, folding the future into the present. In the early ’80s, it turned music video into an aesthetic and marketing revolution by making it into the new pop normal; it also took the Jell-o-shot bacchanalia of spring break and transformed it into a new (lowdown) ideal for everyone heading off to college. In the ’90s, with “The Real World,” MTV invented reality TV as we know it. It also gave us the divine idiocy of “Beavis and Butt-Head,” the divine meathead hedonism of “Jersey Shore,” and — no small thing — ironic detachment as a way of being.

It also gave us the MTV Movie Awards, a snark-drenched put-on of an awards show that when it first started,

Daria Turns 20: 11 Things You Never Knew About the Iconic Show
Ask a certain crowd of people what the defining MTV show of their childhood was, and it’s not Trl, or Real World or Jersey Shore. It’s Daria. Though Ms. Morgendorffer had been seen on Beavis and Butt-Head before, the March 3, 1997, premiere of Daria proved that the two shows couldn’t be more different. Let’s take a fond trip back to Lawndale for a closer look at the best animated misanthrope of the ‘90s.

1. B&B-h creator Mike Judge had no involvement in Daria

Judge agreed to release the character, but that’s where his involvement with the show ended.

Mike Judge Thinks Beavis and Butt-Head Could Return, But in Live-Action

Mike Judge Thinks Beavis and Butt-Head Could Return, But in Live-Action
If there are two things Hollywood loves right now, it’s 1990s nostalgia and reviving dormant properties. In that light, it’s probably just a matter of time before someone, somewhere, makes another attempt to bring back the iconic animated comedy Beavis and Butt-Head. Series creator Mike Judge, for one, thinks it could happen. Although this time, there could be […]

The Most ’90s Christmas Specials To Ever Air

-Mike “McBeardo” McPadden

Holiday specials date back to the earliest days of network television, when Jackie Gleason donned Santa garb on The Honeymooners and Desi Arnaz pumped up traditional carols with Cuban conga beats on I Love Lucy. Each decade since then has generated examples of “very special” episodes and one-off variety hours that, in hindsight, perfectly, and often hilariously, embody their era.

Think of A Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in the ’60s; The Star Wars Holiday Special and The Donny and Marie Christmas Show in the ’70s; and Christmas Comes to Pac-Land and ’Tis the Season to Be Smurfy in the ’80s. The ’90s, of course, kept the tradition going with its own unmistakable (multiply pierced) earmarks. The decade of alterna-culture, outrageous cartoon debuts that weren’t just for kids, and the early Internet also begat its share of unmistakably of-its-moment December broadcast fare.

Michael Bay's "Beavis and Butt-Head"

From Fox's "Animation Domination", Sneak Peek a new animated short, posing the question : What if director Michael Bay, took on creator Mike Judge's cartoon heroes "Beavis and Butt-Head" in an animated feature ?

"...the original 'Beavis and Butt-Head' live in the town of 'Highlands', Texas. They have no apparent adult supervision at home, and not sure if they have the same father or not. They are dim-witted, under-educated and barely literate, and both lack any empathy or moral scruples, even regarding each other.

"Their most common shared activity is watching music videos, which they tend to judge by deeming them 'cool', or by exclaiming, 'This sucks!' They also apply these judgments to other things that they encounter, and will usually deem something 'cool' if it is associated with violence, sex or the macabre. Despite having no experience with women, their other signature traits are a shared obsession with sex,

'Silicon Valley' Star Thomas Middleditch Explains That Kid Rock Cameo

Mike Judge may have made his name with two of the "coolest" dudes ever with "Beavis and Butt-head," but he's found his nadir by celebrating nerdity in all its many forms. Now, Judge is back with HBO's "Silicon Valley." Starring Thomas Middleditch as Richard Hendrix, a socially awkward programmer who accidentally creates an algorithm that could change the world, the show finds Judge back in his satirical comfort zone: skewering the power brokers and nerds ...

'Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Doofus-Duo Comedy Classic

Just as Rufus (George Carlin) predicted, Bill and Ted have had a profound influence on our culture. Maybe not as the rockers who would inspire a utopian global society by the 27th century, but look at how many other dumb-duo movies there have been since the release 25 years ago this week (on February 17, 1989) of "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" -- there's "Dumb and Dumber," "Beavis and Butt-head Do America," "Dude, Where's My Car," "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion," "Dick," and all of Kevin Smith's "Jay and Silent Bob" offerings, for starters. Plus, "Bill & Ted" launched a franchise and made a leading man out of Keanu Reeves.

Still, as often as you've traveled back in time and revisited the "Excellent Adventure," there's probably still plenty you don't know about the movie, including where it was filmed (hint: Not in San Dimas, California), which historical figures almost found their way into the film,
