Open Post: Hosted By The Trailer For “Babylon” Starring Margot Robbie And Brad Pitt

September 13, 2022 / Posted by:

OK, I got one for you: What’s black and white and red all over? Answer: Babylon! In the trailer for La La Land director Damien Chazelle’s new 1920s-Hollywood-set movie starring Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, the jazz players are Black, the booger sugar is white and for some reason Damien has decided to film all the party scenes, of which there are many, using the Fangtasia filter originated during the making of True Blood.

There Were A Few Surprises And Record-Breakers In An Otherwise Pretty Predictable Emmy Awards Ceremony

September 20, 2021 / Posted by:

I watched the 73rd Annual Primetime Emmys last night, and because I live on the east coast, I went to bed immediately after the final award was presented at too-late-for-me-o’clock. And it should be no surprise that I had the weirdest dream last night about a member of the royal family-turned-soccer coach that looked like Kate Winslet and sounded like John Oliver, who for some reason really wanted me to learn how to play chess with their best friend, Cedric the Entertainer. The Emmys last night kind of felt like déjà vu happening in real-time. Oh look, Ted Lasso won another award! The Crown is cleaning up! But there were some moments that felt right, like the formerly snubbed Michaela Coel taking home the award for Writing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, for the incredible I May Destroy You. But other than that, and a few fun surprises, there was a whole lot of Cheerful Soccer Coach and 1980’s-era British Queen Having Problems With Her Son’s Messy Marriage.

Kate Winslet Would Love To Do More “Mare Of Easttown” And Stephen King Correctly Guessed The Killer (Of Course)

June 1, 2021 / Posted by:

At pool parties across America on Memorial Day, the only sound that could probably be heard was the sound of crickets in bikinis loudly chirping as everyone silently sat there drinking their beer while thinking, “The fuck are we supposed to talk about now that Mare of Easttown is over?!” The latest mystery show that turned all of us into regular Detective La Toyas ended on Sunday night, and while HBO called it a “limited series,” we all know that for HBO that really means, “limited series… unless it’s a huge hit and then we’ll milk a season two out of it even though the story is done and there’s no place for the characters to go” (see: Big Little Lies, season 2). And Kate Winslet, the Mare in Mare of Vapetown Easttown, is totally into reuniting with the Watson to her Sherlock (AKA her vape) for a second season. A second season that I’m sure Stephen King will crack open right away since he figured out the killer of MoE before the finale aired. In the wise words of Christian Bale: OoooOoooh, gooood for you, Stephen King!

There Probably Won’t Be A Season 2 Of “Watchmen”

January 17, 2020 / Posted by:

*Possible (mild) spoilers for season 1 ahead.

It looks like we’ll never get to see an enormous Regina King fuck shit up with a 12-inch blue strap-on as Dr. Manhattan because Watchmen will almost certainly not be coming back for a second season. According to USA Today, the show’s creator Damon Lindelof decided to bounce while the bouncing was good. Which is perhaps a blessing considering he still probably gets hate mail for shitting the bed on those last couple seasons of Lost.
