The appeal of putting humans and animals together for maximum dramatic potential, comedic hijinks, and a healthy dose of "aww, so cute" can't be denied, but that doesn't mean it's always a good idea.
The 39th season of 'Saturday Night Live' is over. From the beginning, it was a strange season -- gone were so many of the show's powerful voices: Hader, Samberg, Wiig, Sudeikis, Armisen -- yet this allowed new voices to be heard. And that's the thing about being new on 'SNL': not everything is going to hit. But, in compiling this list of the ten best sketches from the 2013-2014 season, there were some tough choices to be made (sorry, 'Bugs'). And, sadly, for inclusion, the sketch had to have actually appeared on the live show (sorry, 'Wing').
And, yes, this list is heavy with prerecorded material as opposed to live performances. (Perhaps it's not completely fair to compare, but, this is a testament of just how strong the prerecorded sketches are in a post-'Digital Short' world.) And it's also notable that none of the best sketches were recurring sketches (though, I could see at least one of these coming back next season). So, behold: The ten best sketches from this past season of 'Saturday Night Live.'
In a move that surprised no one after the weekend box office report, 'Godzilla 2' is already in the works and we couldn't be more excited. Director Gareth Edwards' take on the iconic monster is one of the most beautiful and refreshing summer movies in a long time, bending over backwards to build tension and tease the the audience before unleashing a monster mash of a climax that has to be seen to be believed. Of course we want 'Godzilla 2.' We wanted a 'Godzilla 2' the moment the credits rolled.
Of course, there's one big important question: which monster(s) would Godzilla fight in the sequel?
I thought it would be fun to revisit as many of these old Spider-Man shorts I could find ... it was not that fun. I mean, sure, it's fun to listen to that theme song again! And it was fun to see Morgan Freeman pop up and help and or fight Spider-Man. But, these tend to get a little redundant, which makes sense because they were made for a six-year-old living in the mid-1970s. It was either this or stare at a wall -- which, maybe, is where the idea for Spider-Man's foe The Wall came from. Regardless, I watched and ranked all of the Spider-Man shorts I could find (15 in all) from least enjoyable to most enjoyable. (Sadly, not all of them are online.)
Stephen Colbert’s conservative character that he currently plays on ‘The Colbert Report’ will be gone, replaced by the actual Stephen Colbert – a guy, kind of surprisingly, not a lot of people know, as opposed to the character he’s been playing since 2005.
What will ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ look like, as opposed to Letterman and Colbert’s current show? Here are our hopes:
These are 10 of the weirdest objects to ever be the focus of a horror movie. Some are the work of a ghost, some are the work of Satan, and some are just plain inexplicable. Yet they all have one thing in common: they're just kind of baffling.
With 'Joe' about to hit theaters, audiences will soon get a reminder of just how good Cage can be. But let's celebrate his long-awaited return to excellence by combing through his filmography and picking the moments that best define his special brand of craziness. Anyone can be good, but only Nicolas Cage can be Nicolas Cage.
With Arnold returning to the screen with 'Sabotage,' it's time to revisit his career. It's time to reevaluate the bombs and celebrate the classics. It's time to rank all of Schwarzenegger's films from worst to best.
