1 hour ago

The war of words between Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un got positively esoteric today, with the Asian leader denouncing Trump as a “mentally deranged U.S. dotard” who he would tame “with fire.” Kim’s statements came after Trump threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea and its “Rocket Man” leader…

Delete your account, Friend Request

1 hour ago

Friend Request is very much the bad movie everyone conjured in their heads when they first heard about Unfriended. Remember Unfriended?

In its best episode yet, The Orville goes to trial for a baby's happiness

1 hour ago

Seth MacFarlane has been cagey about defining his show; unwilling to call it a comedy, he instead emphasizes The Orville’s dramatic foundation. Tonight’s episode, “About A Girl,” is the first episode to offer some legitimacy to his claim. The show is dedicated solely to the ramifications of the previous episode’s…

Better Things tackles nice guys and too-nice women

2 hours ago

Leading by example is not Sam Fox’s style. She’d have to be a paragon of virtue for that, and she is decidedly not. She has flaws—many, many flaws—and what’s more is, she doesn’t hide them from her kids. She doesn’t pretend to be unflappable or unerring. Sam lets them see her sweat and fail, lets them know how…

Matthew Broderick will narrate Fox's A Christmas Story Live!

3 hours ago

Presumably figuring that there’s no better voice to narrate an iconic American childhood than an actor who’s never managed to leave the adjective “boyish” entirely behind, Fox has announced that Matthew Broderick will star as the narrator in its upcoming live production of the holiday classic A Christmas Story.

Here's what's coming to Amazon Prime in October

4 hours ago

October is one of the spookiest months of the year (some might say it’s even the spookiest), and Amazon Prime is going to have some appropriately frightening offerings to stream next month.

Here's a trailer for Peter Rabbit, starring James Corden and Domhnall Gleeson

8 hours ago

A lot of animated movies for kids are dull and uninspired, but there’s something about the inclusion of a live-action human that makes tired jokes and musical cues slightly more palatable. After all, they made a ton of those Alvin And The Chipmunks movies that everybody loved, but Hollywood only just got around to…

In Twin Peaks: The Return’s final scene—spoilers ensue—an Agent Cooper and Laura Palmer out of time (and, perhaps, one version of reality), return to the latter’s childhood home.
