Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In: The Complete Series

| June 19, 2017

Time Life’s home video release of Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In: The Complete Series is one of the most delightfully formidable collections I’ve ever dipped into—a bit of a contradiction, I know, but hopefully you’ll see what I mean soon enough. Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In ran for 140 episodes from 1968 to 1973 and Time Life […]

Twin Peaks: The Return Part 5 (MINOR SPOILERS)

| June 6, 2017

There are thirteen episodes left of Twin Peaks: The Return, and it’s safe to say that David Lynch and Mark Frost are taking their sweet, sweet time. Typically, thirteen episodes would provide plenty of time for a television show to wrap up any runaway plot threads. But Twin Peaks is not just any show, and […]

Brain Damage

| June 4, 2017

Most of us have fond memories of the name Elmer. Whether it be the glue that you can use to make fake skin, or the cartoon hunter (Fudd) who’s always on the lookout for the waskily wabbitt, Bugs Bunny. But there’s a third, underappreciated Elmer out there. This Elmer is not as fun or funny […]

Twin Peaks: The Return Parts 3 & 4 (MINOR SPOILERS)

| May 30, 2017

If Parts 1 and 2 of Twin Peaks: The Return were a relentless slog through the new nightmare world that is Twin Peaks, Parts 3 and 4 are our reward for sticking through so much pain and confusion. All of the comedy that the first two episodes lack can be found in Parts 3 and […]

Get Out

Get Out

Unlike so many horror movies, Peele chooses to have his social commentary sit out in the open, where his audience has no choice but to interact with it. And unlike so many recent horror movies, Get Out offers very little in the way […]
