In the new Rob Zombie directed horror film THE LORDS OF SALEM (which is in theaters now), Salem, MA radio d.j. Heidi, played by Zombie’s real-life wife Sheri Moon Zombie, is sent a record with a strange musical riff that is tied to the famed Salem witches, who seem to be reaching from beyond the grave to further their original goals. At a small press conference, Zombie talks about his new movie. On how he came up with the storyline for THE LORDS OF SALEM… “The storyline came to me about seven years ago,” says Zombie. “I was just reading […]Read On »

Your time is short. We know this.

So put your feet up, grab some popcorn and check out this week’s selections.

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Obama Wins!” – Season Finale

Cartman in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 finale - "Obama Wins!" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: November 7, 2012 As SOUTH PARK winds down Season 16, the series hits a homerun with its season finale “Obama Wins!” Since this episode was pretty much done before the outcome of the Presidential election was announced, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone could have been tempting fate with its proclamation and storyline of an Obama win or would have had to do an “alternate ending” of some sort if the Presidential election went in Mitt Romney’s direction. Regardless, “Obama Wins!” is one of the funniest […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “A Scause for Applause”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 31, 2012 After two strong weeks, SOUTH PARK heads back into iffy territory with “A Scause for Applause”, a failed attempt at dealing with the disgrace of Lance Armstrong for using performance enhancing drugs. In the SOUTH PARK version, everyone wearing “What Would Jesus Do” bracelets decides to cut them off when it’s discovered that Jesus used performance enhancement drugs to perform his miracles. This leads to a dilemma with Stan, who decides he’s not going to cut off his bracelet like everyone else – […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “A Nightmare on FaceTime”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 24, 2012 It’s been some time since SOUTH PARK has done a Halloween episode, but it was worth the wait as Trey Parker and Matt Stone come up with a new classic with “A Nightmare on Facetime.” Sending up THE SHINING, Blockbuster Video’s financial woes, The Avengers and our obsession with Apple products, there’s enough good will here to provide ample laughs and a great story to boot. When Stan’s dad Randy comes home and says the family is going to be rich because he […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Going Native”

Butters gets some bad news from his parents in SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Going Native” | ©2012 Comedy Central Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 18, 2012 Often times SOUTH PARK tries so hard to be topical and “parody” things all the time, that you begin to expect parodies even when there is none. And sometimes, when they are sending something up – it can get quite obscure and then you feel like a complete idiot for not even getting the point of the episode. “Go Native” is one […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Insecurity”

Ike and Kyle thing the UPS man is having sex with their mom in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "Insecurity" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 10, 2012 Sadly SOUTH PARK seems to be struggling during the latter half of Season 16. Joining the awful “Sarastaball” is the latest episode “Insecurity” – a painfully unfunny exercise in randomness. I sense Trey Parker and Matt Stone are trying for some commentary on how fearful the nation has become since the Colorado shootings at THE DARK KNIGHT RISES screening, but it just doesn’t really work. Things kick off when Ike sees a UPS man having sex with his mom (what he doesn’t know […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Raising the Bar”

Cartman finds another loophole in society in SOUTH PARK - Seaosn 16 - "Raising the Bar" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 4, 2012 Thank you SOUTH PARK. After an awful return for the second half of Season 16 last week with “Sarcastaball,” the series is back on track with a hilarious and very meta episode called “Raising the Bar.” The episode concerns itself with society lowering the bar and standards when it comes to overweight people and watching trashy shows like HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO. When Cartman accepts he’s fat, he loves that he can now ride around on his own motorized scooter – and […]Read On »

TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Sarcastaball” – Premiere

Kenny, Butters, Kyle, Stan and Cartman in SOUTH PARK - Season 16 - "Sarcastaball" | ©2012 Comedy Central

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: September 26, 2012 SOUTH PARK is back for the second half of Season 16, but sadly “Sarcastaball” is one of the weakest episodes of the season by far. Taking on the current topical subject of the NFL and the replacement referees that have been destroying the game, SOUTH PARK touches on things that have been mined to far better effect in other episodes and other seasons. When Randy finds out South Park Elementary is making school football “too safe”, he gets all sarcastic and starts suggesting […]Read On »
