Zoolander 2

LONG TIME NO Z. Former fashion icons Zoolander and Hansel (Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson) are reunited after many years to help Interpol find out who’s assassinating pop stars. This belated sequel does everything wrong, even though it closely imitates the original by adding an abundance of cameos and inventing another outlandish plot involving fashion super-villains. … Continue reading Zoolander 2

There Will Be a Reagan Movie… But Not With Ferrell

So, we didn’t get to see a Ronald Reagan movie starring Will Ferrell. But was that really ever in the cards? The clip above is a Funny or Die skit starring Ferrell as President George W. Bush, a role he’s played many times, even on stage. The clip is a funny parody of Obama’s announcement that Osama … Continue reading There Will Be a Reagan Movie… But Not With Ferrell

The Lego Movie

THE STORY OF A NOBODY WHO SAVED EVERYBODY.   In the city of Bricksburg, happy-go-lucky construction worker Emmet Brickowoski meets a woman who believes that he is “the Special”, a person who is ultimately capable of stopping a superweapon.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

IT’S KIND OF A BIG DEAL. After getting kicked out of a prestigious news job in NYC, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) is offered to join the world’s first 24-hour news channel, and gets the old gang back together.

Life After Saturday Night Live

In 2005, there were two new faces on Saturday Night Live, Jason Sudeikis and Bill Hader. This fall, neither of them will be on the show anymore. Hader we knew about, Sudeikis we sort of knew… but he confirmed it last night on Late Night with David Letterman. They gave it 8 years of their lives, both … Continue reading Life After Saturday Night Live

The Internship

Middle-aged watch salesmen Billy and Nick (Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson) lose their jobs and take a chance applying for internships at Google even though they don’t know the first thing about coding. A comedy that may look like mere paid advertising for Google. But on the other hand, the intrigues at the company’s famed campus … Continue reading The Internship

Hollywood Stars in Super Bowl Ads

Anybody who knows me knows that I’m not a sports fan. I love to exercise and I’ve recently started skiing… but sports is something I want to experience. To me, watching a game on TV is not entertainment. I couldn’t care less who won Super Bowl this year, and actually I’d have to Google it … Continue reading Hollywood Stars in Super Bowl Ads
