New full trailer for Amazon Prime's Jean-Claude Van Johnson!

I'm looking forward to the upcoming Amazon Prime series JEAN-CLAUDE VAN JOHNSON, simply for its audacious premise. Basically, Jean-Claude Van Damme is actually a kick-ass super spy, who only acted in films as a cover for his ops. Not only that, but the pilot that was screened last year was actually funny! It wasn't perfect (the whole "go at him one-at-a-time" joke...

Snake Outta Compton is, yes, a real movie

Listen, I know I'm playing right into the filmmaker's hands here. I doubt SNAKE OUTTA COMPTON will be that great (or even bad-great, like BIRDEMIC or 1313: COUGAR CULT), and will probably just be a lame, cheaply-made B-movie that's too calculated to be batshit insane, and too competent to be a cult classic, ala SNAKES ON A PLANE. But, goddammit, it's a slow news day...

Jean-Claude Van Johnson gets new teaser trailer

I remember when JEAN-CLAUDE VAN JOHNSON first appeared as a pilot Amazon Prime let you vote on, and thinking it was alright. I thought the beginning - with sadsack Jean-Claude Van Damme - moping around his house was extremely funny, while a lot of the Hollywood parody stuff (like the ridiculous Huckleberry Finn action film he found himself in) was a little too on the nose. As for the...

MAD magazine spoofs Stranger Things with their latest issue

In my adolescent to teen years, I was an avid reader of both the MAD and CRACKED magazines. Spy vs. Spy was my jam, and the tiny toons that Sergio Aragones stashed around the many pages of MAD brought a smile to my face with each hilarious installment. Before the days of Nintendo Power, MAD was the only publication I subscribed to, and there have been times when I've wanted...

New The Tick promo shows off some big blue derring-do!

SPOOOOOOON!!!!!!! To say that I'm excited for the upcoming THE TICK Amazon Prime series is an understatement. I loved THE TICK since I was a kid watching the old FOX cartoon show, I loved the original live-action Patrick Warburton one, and I of course loved the recent pilot with Peter Serafinowicz! My favorite part was that the tone was different - instead of super cartoony, or sitcomy,...

Netflix's American Vandal trailer asks the important questions

True crime stories are all the rage now. HOW TO MAKE A MURDERER, SERIAL, OJ: MADE IN AMERICA - just to name a few. What makes them fascinating is not only the crime itself, but how circumstances, biases, and often corrupt systems that railroad victims and force convictions based on biases rather than facts. And these new true crime stories, especially documentaries like the aforementioned...

Fan videos for #TickSaveMyCity sent to the producer and star of The Tick

I've loved what Amazon has done with the new live-action THE TICK. While the cartoon was a crazy lampoon of the ridiculousness of comics, and the 2001 Patrick Warburton series was basically SEINFELD with capes, this new version has the eponymous crazy blue strongman plopped in the middle of a gritty Netflix-style show - and hilarity ensues. Now, each iteration of THE TICK is great...

"Weird Al" Yankovic to get star on Hollywood Walk of Fame!

It's crazy how long "Weird Al" Yankovic has been in show-biz (hint: almost four decades), especially considering how schticky his act must look from an outsider's perspective. Spoofing songs for a whole career? How weir --  absurd ! But Weird Al makes it work, and is honestly super hilarious. I've been a fan of his work since I was a kid (even...

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later coming to Netflix

WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER seems like one of those "love it/hate it" things. It's so weird and idiosyncratic, with many of its jokes simply based on period accurate aesthetics, or having a guy hump a refrigerator, that it makes sense it's a cult classic and not more well-known (not that it's necessarily a hidden gem either - it's hard to hide that cast). As for...

SyFy releases teaser for Sharknado 5: Global Swarming

Since the world isn't fair, and is a dark existential nightmare always on the edge of teetering into the abyss, it explains the existence of a fifth fucking SHARKNADO movie. And, look, I don't have a problem with the SHARKNADO series because they're bad movies. I've seen shit like BIRDEMIC, THE ROOM, FATEFUL FINDINGS, and A TALKING CAT?!? more times than...

Cool Videos: MST3K Viral Promo finds the crew riffing on Stranger Things

Back in my day , if you weren't watching MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 after school, you'd best find yourself another cafeteria table to sit at the following afternoon. I'm not kidding. Most days, talk about what manner of cinematic torture Joel and the robots were made to endure was one of the only ways my friends and I could survive until that final period alarm...

Go Team Venture! Season 7 of Venture Brothers series now in production!

No joke, VENTURE BROTHERS might be my favorite show airing today. Period. I love both its reverence and irreverence to superhero and adventure stories, with it skewing the tropes and cliches of the genre, while also upholding them with its own internal mythology and cast of inter-connected characters. In fact, I think its willingness to change and grow, as well as...
