Issa Rae: Why 'Insecure' Is Not Made 'for Dudes' or 'White People'
Issa Rae didn't find out how her dad, a Senegal-born doctor, felt about her HBO series Insecure until a couple months after the first season wrapped. In fact, she thought he might hate it. "Then in our family group chat, he dropped a really inappropriate reference about Lawrence's back shots to Tasha," she says with a laugh, referring to the shocking, explicit finale scene where her character's ex-boyfriend rebounds with his bank teller. "I was like 'Wow, he made it to the finale! That's cool! This is not the place to show me,

Catalog From The Beyond: Bones (2001)

  • DailyDead
Growing up in the ’90s, my path to the glory of Pam Grier took an odd route. I was probably about 12 years old watching an HBO First Look for John Carpenter’s Escape From L.A., and they spent what seemed an inordinate amount of time fawning over this woman playing Hershe Las Palmas, the transsexual crime boss formerly known as Carjack Malone. Being a snot-nosed kid, I had no idea who Grier was. Of course, since then I’ve come to know and appreciate her as genre royalty, with a list of credits extending from ’70s blaxploitation film like Coffy and Scream, Blacula, Scream to all sorts of film and television roles spanning five decades. That said, whenever I see or hear mention of Grier, my first thought will be of her bantering in a put-on deep voice to an eye-patched Kurt Russell.

I always knew that I’d want

Exodus: Gods And Kings Blu-Ray Review

People often talk about over-hyped and under-hyped films, and with good reason, but when a film strikes you as getting exactly the right amount of hype, it’s rare indeed. This is exactly where Exodus: Gods and Kings seems to fall. It’s a film that seems like it should have gotten more attention, especially considering the cast, and the fact that it was directed by Ridley Scott.

It turns out that the film, while actually quite good, delivers to precisely the level of interest the world seems to have dictated is its due.

A thematically unique spin on this, or any other, biblical telling, Exodus starts us off with Moses (Christian Bale) in the prime of his Egyptian Prince-ish-hood. He’s about to take care of some upstart tribe or other with his “brother” Ramses (Joel Edgerton), and a prophecy kicks off Ramses’ dislike of the man he has

Exodus: Gods and Kings Blu-ray announced

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has this week announced the official release information for the Christmas blockbuster Exodus: Gods and Kings. The film, which has grossed over $262 million on its worldwide release, is set to be released in the Us on March 17th on both 2D and 3D Blu-ray.

You can view all technical specs below…

From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Alien) comes the epic adventure “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state-of-the-art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale, The Dark Knight Trilogy) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton, Warrior), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Cameron Diaz And Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars

  • Hitfix
Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Cameron Diaz And Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars
In Cameron Diaz, “Saturday Night Live” has its second consecutive host making an appearance after a lengthy absence. Although Diaz has hosted the show three times before, this is her first time doing so since 2005. Will there be “Annie” sketches? Probably! Will there be a Jamie Foxx and/or Quvenzhané Wallis cameo? Possibly! Will Bruno Mars make an in-sketch appearance in addition to his musical role tonight? Likely! Will this be an exciting episode or one that puts audiences to sleep faster than Thanksgiving dinner? Who knows! As always, I’ll be liveblogging the show in real time, assigning grades to each segment. As always, I’ll remind you that comedy is subjective and the grades don’t have any more power than you allow them to have. As always, a few of you will ignore that last statement and quibble over a “B-“ versus a “B”. It’s cool.

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Charlize Theron and The Black Keys

  • Hitfix
Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Charlize Theron and The Black Keys
While recent host Seth Rogen took nearly five years to return to “Saturday Night Live,” Charlize Theron makes that period look downright short by comparison. Her one and only other hosting gig took place in November 2000, making tonight’s return thirteen and a half years in the making. (To be fair, filming “Aeon Flux” took a lot out of everyone involved with that production, so we can’t fault her too much.) While preferring dramas to comedies in terms of her film choices, Theron does have “A Million Ways To Die In The West” on the way to your local movie theatre. Pairing her with Seth MacFarlane in that film might seem strange, but that’s probably precisely the point. That film sure looks a long way from "Monster" and "North Country." So maybe we’ll see a different performer than the one that graced Studio 8H at the turn of the century.

Logan gets a bad feeling at a funeral in the latest clip from The Wolverine; plus HBO first look

  • JoBlo
Update: I've also added the HBO First Look from the flick via Coming Soon. It's short but worthy of posting. Aren't feeling too optimistic about The Wolverine, are we? I think deep down inside you guys want this to work but unfortunately what you've seen so far doesn't seem to be doing it for you. I think it's at least worth giving a shot. Hugh Jackman is a fantastic Wolverine, and it's not his fault that the solo character films don't seem to be doing him an justice. But are the...

Prometheus Blu-ray – First Details

The most anticipated and polarising film of 2012 is coming to Blu-ray later this year and details of the bonus content have been found on

Anyone hoping for a significant number of deleted scenes to fill in the film’s many plot holes will be disappointed as there are only 15 minutes worth. But the most exciting thing on the disc may be the inclusion of the first and final draft of the script by Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts.

Prometheus began as a straight Alien prequel written by Jon Spaihts until Damon Lindelof conducted a re-write that became the final product. If they do actually include Spaihts’ original draft, it will be fascinating to see how he originally planned to link it to Alien and if it would have actually made a better film.

You also get Ridley Scott providing an audio commentary so it will be very interesting

The Art of Getting By – Blu-ray review

Blu-ray Review

The Art of Getting By

Directed by: Gavin Wiesen

Cast: Freddie Highmore, Emma Roberts

Running Time: 1 hour 25 min

Rating: PG-13

Due Out: November 29, 2011

Plot: An existential, mopey high school student (Highmore) meets a beautiful girl (Roberts) and starts to show more interest in life.

Who’S It For? Mopey high school students.


George (Highmore) is intelligent (we know this because he’s always reading) and rich (though not as rich as some classmates, so that’s supposed to make him relatable) but despite getting the kind of education and chances that many kids dream of, he skips classes, ignores homework, and generally behaves like he’s above it all. One day he starts talking to Sally (Roberts), a beautiful girl who’s doesn’t sound like she’s in high school. She has a laissez-faire attitude about men and sexual relationships that you would expect in a

New Release: The Art of Getting By DVD and Blu-ray

Release Date: Nov. 29, 2011

Format: DVD and Blu-ray

Studio: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

Emma Roberts and Freddie Highmore ponder the possibilities in The Art of Getting By.

The Art of Getting By is a coming-of-age romantic comedy-drama film starring Emma Roberts (It’s Kind of a Funny Story) and Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) set against the backdrop of very beautiful New York City.

The movie spins the tale of George (Highmore), a lonely and fatalistic high school teen who’s made it all the way to his senior year without ever having done a real day of work, and Sally (Roberts), a popular but complicated gal who recognizes in him a kindred spirit. Might there be love in the air? Or maybe just a deep friendship and mutual respect?

Directed by Gavin Wiesen, The Art of Getting By offers a healthy roster of co-stars, including Rita Wilson

Blu-ray to celebrate The Cable Guy’s 15th anniversary

Sony Pictures will release a new Blu-ray of the Ben Stiller-directed, Jim Carrey-starring dark comedy The Cable Guy on March 1st, 2011. The film was much-hyped due to Carrey’s first $20 million paycheck, which was an exceedingly high payday. After the successes of Ace Venture and Dumb and Dumber, it felt like a no-brainer, but the film barely earned $60 million at the B.O., and was critically panned.

Oh, how time has been kind. The film’s dark tone has been re-evaluated and given the proper praise since. The disc will house some good extras as well:

* Gag Reel

* HBO First Look

* Comedy Central Canned Ham Presents: The Cable Guy

* Basketball

* Medieval Times

* Breakfast

* Ending Mud Fight

* Karaoke Alt. – Bust A Move

* Nightmare Camera Test

* Leslie Mann Audition

* Music video: Jerry Cantrell, “Leave Me Alone”

[Blu-Review] Alien Anthology

Finally, one of the box-sets we’ve all been waiting for! The Alien franchise is one of those series that’s perfect for Blu-Ray. It is a benchmark for the format and you can check out our full review of The Alien Anthology below.


How much can one say about the timeless classic sci-fi horror film that hasn’t been said before? Well, very little. This is still Ridley Scott‘s finest film to date and it hasn’t aged a bit. Every beat of tension still lands with a punch, the alien is still one of the best ever to be put on-screen, and it’s atmosphere stays eerie and unsettling throughout.

Alien is the king of the monster movies. Very few horror films can achieve the level of investment Scott and co. did with making you actually care for the ensemble, even outside of Ripley. What
