Bill Maher Gets Transphobic On Real Time Again

It would not be an episode of Real Time with Bill Maher unless the comedian got openly transphobic at some point during the broadcast. While I came back online to the news about John Mulaney, I didn’t see anything in the entertainment trades about Bill Maher. I probably didn’t scroll back far enough. Oh, well. This doesn’t change the fact that Warner Bros. Discovery doesn’t just have a J.K. Rowling problem. They have a Bill…

John Mulaney Has Dave Chappelle Open For Him

John Mulaney screwed the Disney+ opening weekend of Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers by having transphobic comedian Dave Chappelle open for him. Not only did Mulaney screw over his castmates but he screwed his fans in attendance by allowing the transphobic comedian to perform. This happened during Mulaney’s From Scratch tour at Ohio State University’s Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio. If you’ve already read the reports, fans had to seal up their phones before…

Jazz Fest: A New Orleans Story

Jazz Fest: A New Orleans Story offers a fun time for all while giving audiences a taste for why this New Orleans festival is so popular. The documentary has the unfortunate luck of opening right after Summer of Soul won the Oscar for Best Documentary. I say this because comparisons between the two are inevitable as unfair as it may be. We ought to recognize this film for its own merits. Putting 50 years of…

George Carlin’s American Dream: This Doc Is Superb

George Carlin’s American Dream is a two-documentary about the late comedian premiering on HBO and available to stream on HBO Max. While interviews with contemporary comedians are nice, this documentary does not work without the archival footage of the late George Carlin, the dean of the counterculture comedians. It’s this footage that drives the bulk of the documentary. It’s best to learn about Carlin’s life from the man himself. Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio, who…

Downton Abbey: A New Era Is A New Era, Indeed

Downton Abbey: A New Era takes audiences to a new era as the adventure continues following six seasons and a movie. It would not be a Downton Abbey film without adding some twists and turns along the way. However, I will not be spoiling the particulars in question. Longtime fans will be at an advantage but if you’ve only seen the previous film, I think you’ll do just fine. It helps if you watch the…

The Kids in the Hall: Comedy Punks

The Kids in the Hall: Comedy Punks is an in-depth as a two-part documentary can be about the Canadian comedy troupe. Together, Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson make up The Kids in the Hall. The two-part documentary weaves in their comments with archival footage from their earlier years. If you want an opportunity to see their pre-HBO/CBS work, make sure to watch the doc series when it lands on…

A Perfect Pairing Goes Down Under

A Perfect Pairing sees a hard-working LA wine company exec travel to Australia and do whatever she can in hopes of landing a client. This film is the latest film to be the Netflix movie of the week. How long it stays in the conversation or makes it at all depends. There’s quite a bit of competition this weekend but the film has a head start by launching on Thursday. It’s a genius move on…

The Valet Has Potential But Too Long

The Valet is another English-language film adapted from a hit French film but this film suffers by having too long of a run time. If the film had run about an hour and a half, no problem. However, it could certainly stand to be tighter and lose a few scenes. I mean, you have a few scenes here and there that really add nothing to the overall film. If the film wants us to focus…

Stan Lee: Marvel Licenses Likeness For Future Movies

In what may be a good idea or a disturbingly bad one, Marvel has licensed the likeness of Stan Lee for appearances in future films. Over the years, there’s been no better joy in watching a Marvel movie than spotting the Stan Lee cameo. You never know when it’s going to pop up. And sometimes, his cameo dispenses a piece of wisdom onto the superhero. Other times, it’s a cameo that pokes fun. Remember his…
