SAUSAGE PARTY | © 2016 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. SAUSAGE PARTY – The whole idea behind SAUSAGE PARTY is a bit disturbing, that food is actually conscious and reacts to how we, well, devour them. Like I don’t want to know about my bread loving getting spread with mustard and then at the same time get eaten in extreme pain. Luckily, it is all in good, filthy and dirty-talking fun with a host of funny people including Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, James Franco, Danny McBride and more. Obviously this is a very […]Read On »

Movie Review: TRAINWRECK

Trainwreck | © 2015 Universal Pictures

Rating: R Stars: Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Tilda Swinton, Vanessa Bayer, LeBron James, Brie Larson, John Cena, Colin Quinn, Norman Lloyd, Mike Birbiglia, Randall Park, Ezra Miller Writer: Amy Schumer Director: Judd Apatow Distributor: Universal Release Date: July 17, 2015 Somewhere between a character study and a semi-unconventional romcom, TRAINWRECK is more funny and enjoyable than not. Its politics aside (what’s one more female screen protagonist primarily defined by her approach to romance at this late date?), Amy Schumer’s script tries to keep us on our toes while getting us to laugh and make us uncomfortable, all at the same […]Read On »

Positing that everyone has a mental control room populated by an individual version of Joy, […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 17 – “Ginger Cow”

Cartman and Kyle in SOUTH PARK - Season 17 - "Ginger Cow" | ©2013 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: November 6, 2013 The seventeenth season of SOUTH PARK is about half way through its run, but the episodes, like usual, have been wildly uneven. The latest, “Ginger Cow”, is hands down the worst this year. Playing into the notion of peace in the Middle East and Cartman creating chaos once again, it’s short on laughs and long in execution. The episode begins when Cartman claims he saw a “Ginger Cow” in the pasture – a cow painted red and given a red wig. Apparently, this […]Read On »

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: September 25, 2013 It used to be SOUTH PARK did a full season split into two seven-episode chunks throughout the year. That all changed this year, with SOUTH PARK now doing a 10-episode season in one big chunk. Other changes on the horizon include more writers than before including former SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE star Bill Hader who has joined the show full-time after consulting on the show for years. So what does this mean for the Season 17 Premiere of SOUTH PARK? Not much, it still […]Read On »

TV Review: SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE – Season 38 – Host Martin Short

After a very rough patch of episodes, SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE pulled out all the stops for its Christmas episode hosted by Martin Short with musical guest Paul McCartney. Following on the heels of the tragedy in the Sandy Hook elementary shooting, SNL made the cold opening a very classy and understated moment – they had the New York Children’s Choir sing “Silent Night”. No mention was made of the tragedy, but it was clear what this moment stood for. Very memorable. The rest of the episode was filled with an endless parade of big name cameos (Samuel L. Jackson, Alec […]Read On »

TV Review: SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE – Season 38 – Host Jaime Foxx

Jamie Foxx and Jason Sudeikis in SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE - Season 38 | ©2012 NBC/Dana Edelson

Stars: Fred Armisen, Vanessa Bayer, Bill Hader, Taran Killam, Seth Meyers, Bobby Moynihan, Nasim Pedrad, Jay Pharoah, Jason Sudeikis, Kenan Thompson, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Tim Robinson, Cecily Strong Network: NBC, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: December 8, 2012 SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE returns after a three-week hiatus, and the time away still hasn’t made the show any sharper or any funnier. Season 38 has turned into one of the worst seasons in some time and I still haven’t figured out why. Kristen Wiig and Andy Samburg leaving should not have killed the show’s momentum. They were good, but they weren’t […]Read On »

TV Review: SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE – Season 38 – Host Jeremy Renner

Stars: Fred Armisen, Vanessa Bayer, Bill Hader, Taran Killam, Seth Meyers, Bobby Moynihan, Nasim Pedrad, Jay Pharoah, Jason Sudeikis, Kenan Thompson, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Tim Robinson, Cecily Strong Network: NBC, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: November 17, 2012 The downward spiral of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE continues with this abysmal episode hosted by Jeremy Renner. While Renner is an amazing dramatic actor, doing live TV is not necessarily his strong suit, although when his piano failed to play during his monologue, he handled himself quite well until the problem was fixed. That said, most of the sketches were terrible this […]Read On »
