Happy Thanksgiving from The A.V. Club

7 hours ago

President Donald Trump is pardoning turkeys in the same week that a Backstreet Boy has been accused of rape and the co-founder of Pixar and a once-beloved journalistic icon accused of sexual harassment, and all we can do at this point is make jokes about it on Twitter, which isn’t even all that fun anymore. And it…

The Punisher’s seventh episode finally picks up the pace

9 hours ago

Now that’s more like it. “Crosshairs” takes some decisive steps forward while (finally) providing a better sense of Frank and Micro’s overall plan. It gives Madani and Stein a concrete challenge to take on and offers a clearer sense of who our villains are and what they want. It’s got dark comedy, a great action…

Today in no, duh: Netflix is canceling its Golden Globes party with The Weinstein Co.

22 November 2017 5:23 PM, PST

In a turn that’s really only shocking in so far as it’s happening now, and not a month ago, Netflix has confirmed that it won’t be holding its annual Golden Globes party with The Weinstein Co. this year. The studio has, of course, been right at the heart at the current sexual harassment scandal sweeping through…

Two major twists shake up The Punisher’s world

22 November 2017 8:00 AM, PST

When I say The Punisher is a slow show, I don’t mean it doesn’t have a lot going on. Without a main villain to focus on (at least not yet, although that might change after this episode), the series fills that space with complex subplots that intersect in unexpected ways. In fact, it arguably has more going on than any…

She’s Gotta Have It is Spike Lee’s best work in decades

22 November 2017 7:00 AM, PST

She’s Gotta Have It is good. If you look at Spike Lee’s career, it’s easy to fault him for his missteps: He has difficulties portraying characters outside of his male experience, his range is often harmed when his ideas get too expansive or the material is too different from his own life. All of these issues caused…

Charles Manson memorial doughnut draws disapproval from non-murdering public

22 November 2017 6:51 AM, PST

Serial killer fandom is one of those bizarre things I’ll never wrap my head around. But perhaps folks who rock Charles Manson socks (yep, this is a thing) or John Wayne Gacy t-shirts were the target audience of Portland’s Voodoo Doughnut’s this week, when they decided to create a memorial doughnut for the racist who…

90 percent of us fail miserably at eating enough fruits and veggies

22 November 2017 5:21 AM, PST

Is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention just trolling us with the timing on this new report? On a day when most of us are elbow-deep slathering turkeys with butter, the Cdc dropped a big ol’ finger wag of a study that finds only 10 percent of American adults eat enough fruits and veggies. Wait, do the celery…

In this week's Savage Love: Public Players

22 November 2017 12:00 AM, PST

I’m a twentysomething straight woman. About a month ago, I had a really vivid dream in which I was at a party and engaging with a guy I had just met. We were seriously flirting. Then my fiancé showed up—my real, flesh-and-blood, sleeping-next-to-me fiancé—who we’ll call G. In the dream, I proceeded to shower G with…

Trump: "Women are very special," but not so special that he won't continue to support Roy Moore

21 November 2017 4:21 PM, PST

Dear women of America: Good news! Donald Trump thinks you’re special, and not just in a “happens to be his daughter Ivanka” kind of way. No, Trump thinks you’re all a bunch of real special ladies, and he’d like you to keep that fact in mind as he continues to offer his support to accused sexual abuser Roy Moore during…

John Landis can’t give us his top 5 comedies of all time

21 November 2017 3:30 PM, PST

John Landis has directed a number of noteworthy movie comedies in his career, including The Blues Brothers, Coming To America, and Trading Places. We thought it would be appropriate to get Landis’ picks for the five best comedies of all time, but he wasn’t having it. In the video above, he schools us on the concept of…

Beyoncé is the highest-paid woman in music, obviously

21 November 2017 2:58 PM, PST

We have a new highest-paid woman in music, and it’s someone who seems like she was born to take this top spot: Beyoncé. According to Forbes’ annual list, she raked in $105 million in the past year (before taxes) thanks to the success of Lemonade and her Formation World Tour—which made a quarter of a billion dollars…

Laura Dern says her Star Wars: The Last Jedi character is meant to be divisive

21 November 2017 11:54 AM, PST

We still don’t know how the Star Wars movies will respond to the death of Carrie Fisher, as her General Leia was reportedly supposed to play a big role in The Last Jedi and whatever Episode IX will be called, but a new Entertainment Weekly piece dedicated to Laura Dern’s Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo might give us some…

We're not worthy of co-hosting this anniversary Wayne's World screening in Chicago

21 November 2017 8:00 AM, PST

Wayne’s World is the best of the Saturday Night Live movies. Oh, there are those who will tell you it’s really The Blues Brothers or maybe the relatively recent MacGruber. There are even a few sick freaks who might cite A Night At The Roxbury. But let’s be real: In quotability, in laugh count, in gleeful irreverence,…

Big, dumb bus ruins the implosion of the Georgia Dome for everyone

21 November 2017 5:08 AM, PST

If there’s one thing you can count on after spending hours staking out a primo spot for the fireworks, it’s that some slack-jawed giant sipping a Big Gulp will wander into your sightline the second things get started. That’s certainly what went down in the above clip, which finds a big, dumb, lumbering bus ruin The…

Mon-El’s return to Supergirl comes with a timey wimey twist

20 November 2017 8:35 PM, PST

“Wake Up” feels different than your average episode of Supergirl. There’s very little in the way of action and there isn’t a traditional villain for Kara to fight. It’s pretty much just a straight sci-fi character drama with a Twilight Zone-esque twist at the end. It’s an outing that easily could’ve felt like filler,…
