Where did this come from? Take a few of the biggest names in comedy from the last few years, a few action stars, and a couple of more serious actors and actresses and stick them with an action-filled script and what do you get? This very NSFW, intriguing trailer for Operation: Endgame. The premise is […]

Blightyvision: “Coupling”

Like “Friends,” but British and funny. Created by Steven Moffat Starring Jack Davenport, Gina Bellman, Sarah Alexander, Kate Isitt, Ben Miles, and Richard Coyle A while back, I was complaining to a male friend that I couldn’t wrap my head around how guys think.  His answer wasn’t a man-ish attempt at brotherly solidarity, a “men […]

The Wibbly-Wobbly Timey-Wimey Watchlist: The 2010 BAFTA Television Awards

The Wednesday Weekend Primer: Shrek

Shrek (2001) Directed by: Andrew Adamson, Vicky Jenson Starring: Mike Meyers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy, John Lithgow Rated PG for mild language and some crude humor.

He very rarely gets the credit he deserves for Young Frankenstein. If you asked 100 people on the street who the genius behind this film is, 99 would most likely say Mel Brooks, and […]
