Westworld episode 4 recap: Dissonance Theory

As we’ve discussed during our recaps of Westworld‘s first three episodes, the series is laying a whole lot of groundwork, giving viewers multiple storylines and characters to unpack. If you’ve felt the need to go back and watch an episode or two — or all three — we won’t judge. Thus far, Westworld seems to […]


Mascots is like a copy of a copy of a better Christopher Guest film

Let’s begin this review of the new Christopher Guest film Mascots with a segue. Waiting for Guffman is my favorite movie of all time. There isn’t one single, solitary scene in that mockumentary that doesn’t at least make me chuckle, even on the 50th viewing. It’s pitch perfect in it’s balance of pathos and comedy. […]


Tom Hanks’ best moments from Saturday Night Live

This week, Tom Hanks will host Saturday Night Live for the ninth time, and while there are people who have hosted SNL more times than Hanks, not many are as beloved by cast members and fans. It’s been over 30 years since Hanks hosted for the first time and during that span, he has gone from […]

Hugh Jackman looks rough in first glimpse of Old Man Logan

While the new teaser trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 sucked up most of the air in the superhero movie geek space on Wednesday, Hugh Jackman and Wolverine are ready to follow that up with a reveal of their own. Old Man Logan will simply not be ignored. On Wednesday, Logan director […]


WATCH: General Hospital awkwardly promotes Doctor Strange

Who doesn’t love a little corporate synergy? OK, maybe no one except the executives and producers who push for placements and crossovers across a conglomerate’s various properties. Sometimes, it can be kind of fun, such as when a trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiered during Monday Night Football. One Disney property helping another, […]


Westworld episode 3 recap: The Stray

Westworld started off its first season with two episodes that were mostly filled with introductions. While the first two episodes were strong, the third one blew both out of the water. After getting most of the “world building” and introductions out of the way in the first two episodes, Westworld was able to jump right […]


The Accountant presents itself as puzzle, has too many missing pieces

Ben Affleck has accumulated a lot of goodwill from critics for his work in directing Gone Baby Gone, The Town and Argo. (Live By Night, to be released at the end of the year, also looks promising.) He’s also earned quite a bit of credibility among fans and geeks for portraying arguably the best version […]
