Warren Beatty’s ‘Rules Don’t Apply’ an historic bust

Warren Beatty’s ‘Rules Don’t Apply’ an historic bust

We thought Bad Santa 2 had a disastrous opening until we saw what Warren Beatty’s Rules Don’t Apply did. Written and directed by Beatty and featuring the likes of Martin Sheen, Candice Bergen, Ed Harris, Matthew Broderick, Paul Sorvino and of course, Annette Bening, the $25 million dollar movie tanked to an unbelievable extent over [...]

Colin Kaepernick and Matt Barkley’s efforts fall flat

Colin Kaepernick and Matt Barkley’s efforts fall flat

It’s getting tougher and tougher to find people who support Colin Kaepernick. Already disliked as a underachieving quarterback who makes almost $20 million a year, the guy’s political stances are getting more and more hypocritical. A less-than-ideal guy in the first place to complain about the “oppression” of black people since he’s a super-rich black [...]

Watch Steve Smith ‘pummel’ poor Vontaze Burfict

Watch Steve Smith ‘pummel’ poor Vontaze Burfict

Most people grew tired of Cincy linebacker Vontaze Burfict’s antics some time ago. Then you remember that the guy is only 26 years old and you realize there is ample time for you to grow to hate him even more. Burfict has been fined almost a million dollars total in his NFL career so far, [...]

Hard to not feel bad for Tony Romo and Blair Walsh

Hard to not feel bad for Tony Romo and Blair Walsh

The Minnesota Vikings cut Blair Walsh yesterday, and it was really hard to not feel bad for the guy. He came into the league in 2012 and made the Pro Bowl as a rookie. He was shaky in 2014 and not-so-hot at extra points in 2015, but was generally thought of as a pretty good [...]

The liberal temper tantrum subsides a bit, but continues

The liberal temper tantrum subsides a bit, but continues

Good lord, I didn’t vote for Trump, but now I wish I had. If you were on social media last week, you almost certainly couldn’t have missed liberal millennials going bat-shit crazy. It was difficult to gauge from the hysterical reactions what minority group was now most in mortal danger from the head of The [...]

Trailer Tuesday: ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Valerian’

Trailer Tuesday: ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Valerian’

November is a pretty good time for movies. You have some actual good ones studios plan to release before the year ends to qualify them for Oscar consideration, and you still have some big budget crowd-pleasing ones like Doctor Strange and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Not only that, you usually get some [...]

Denis Villeneuve again makes us think with deep ‘Arrival’

Denis Villeneuve again makes us think with deep ‘Arrival’

We hope you’ve heard of Denis Villeneuve by now. He’s a talented writer/director who has been rightfully entrusted to make Blade Runner 2049. Of late he’s forgone writing to make good movies off screenplays and stories written by others. In the last few years he’s given us Prisoners, Sicario, and now Arrival. Villeneuve’s movies tend [...]

Election night commentary

Election night commentary

10:10 pm ET–Okay, glad we jumped in late. Got some sleep and bypassed hours of coverage without telling us anything. Trump was competitive (enough) early, as the important swing states of North Carolina, Florida and Ohio remain up in the air. We all know how Florida and recounts elsewhere might go–so at a minimum we’re [...]

Evan McMullin for president

Evan McMullin for president

Look at him. So mouth-watering, so delicious, an excellent source of protein and with a solid chance to win Utah. A freshly-cracked Grade A egg on a toasted English Muffin, he’s what you want this Tuesday. He’s what you want every Tuesday. He’s diverse and has plenty of international experience with his lean Canadian bacon [...]
