Legendary magician Johnny Thompson died this weekend. Even if you don’t know his name, you know plenty of performers who were influenced by him, and you may have seen Penn & Teller recreating this classic routine on “Fool Us.”
My thoughts on the reboot of the Helen Hunt/Paul Reiser sitcom, “Mad About You,” coming soon to a channel you never heard of that you probably don’t get.
Here’s my review of “Captain Marvel,” the first MCU movie about the origin story of a female superhero (directed by the couple that once put me in a major motion picture!).
My review of “Triple Frontier,” which is part war movie, part heist movie, starring Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal.
Too often, movie trailers reveal too much of the plot, instead of just teasing us. But this one got it absolutely right.
I haven’t yet seen the four-hour documentary HBO will air tonight and tomorrow about 2 men who say Michael Jackson abused them when they were boys, but I’ll bet it burns up social media — and causes radio stations to consider dropping his music altogether.
My review of “The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind,” Chiwetel Ejiofor’s first directorial effort (he wrote and stars in it, too), which debuts today on Netflix.
My thoughts on Lady Gaga’s response to social media posts about her Oscar highlight, singing “Shallow” with Bradley Cooper, and why he deserves even more credit than he’s being given.
I’m not 100% sure what “high crimes and misdemeanors” means, but I think it was the reason Tommy Chong went to jail in 2003.
Stories from a couple of friends who are contractors — and having trouble finding new employees — led me to write this piece, which has an ironic ending.
If you’re a regular reader of this site — or if you listened to my radio show — you know how much I detest the frauds who call themselves psychics. That’s why I was happy to see John Oliver take on those lowlifes during his HBO show Sunday night.
If you missed my snarky remarks about the Oscars on Twitter and Facebook, here they are, all in one place!
One more thing that would help tonight’s Oscars broadcast: moments like this.
Seth Meyers and Amber Ruffin in a perfect parody of White Savior movies like Green Book, Hidden Figures, Dangerous Minds, The Blind Side, and so many more.
Some thoughts on the 2019 Academy Awards, which will air Sunday night on ABC without a host — and why that’s a good thing.
