Dream-Casting a Live-Action Little Mermaid for Disney


Perhaps no task is more difficult for a studio than casting a well-known franchise to match the sky-high expectations of fans. From novels to comic books to animated film remakes, Hollywood has had mixed results with the task; some have spent the big bucks to get the demanded stars, Read more

Best Movies of 2016: The 3rd Annual Groucho Awards


Welcome to the Third Annual Groucho Awards! This is my own platform to nominate and award the movies of my choosing, because it seems that far too often, the movies with the biggest campaigns get Oscar nominations and the little guys are left out in the cold. This year Read more

A compelling case that Corinne is six-years-old, and other Bachelor nonsense


  Written by: @jeremywilson412 In the words of Chris Harrison, "Coming up on this week's episode (recap) of The Bachelor..." The ladies receive their first real test, we pause to remember those we lost this week, I present a theory about Corinne that is bulletproof, and we discuss the contenders and pretenders.

I was not going to write about The Bachelor, but then...


(Written by: @JeremyWilson412) I wasn’t going to write about The Bachelor this year, but then a girl showed up in a shark costume convinced it was a dolphin costume. I wasn’t going to write about The Bachelor this year, but then a girl showed up who hooked up with Nick at Read more

What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith


Most of us have loved Chris Pratt since we first met him as Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec. Then he made his dramatic debuts in Academy Award Best Picture nominees Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty. The latter revealed that he could be an action star, so it came as no surprise Read more

The Top 10 Things in Entertainment for 2016


2016 has largely been seen as a bad year, with one of the prominent reasons being the passing of so many artists and celebrities. While it certainly was painful to lose talents like Prince, David Bowie, Carrie Fisher, and dozens of others, those ends didn’t take away from the Read more

The Bachelorette: Men Tell All Recap & Final Rose Preview

Ashley and JP

Well, my experiment failed. I thought maybe if I stopped writing about this season that it would just go away. I got tired of Andi and her boy(z II men). I was tired of watching these men swaddled in scarves perusing some of this world’s greatest cities. But, I never stopped watching the episodes. Then the Bachelor(ette) did what it does best – it suckered me back in once we got down to the final four. Read more

Why we dislike Shia LaBeouf

Shia-Labeouf-likes-to-stare

Shia LaBeouf is at it again. Seen the latest headline? The actor was ejected from a Broadway performance of “Cabaret” and promptly arrested for disorderly conduct. His crimes were worse than peering down his phone at Snapchat during the show, too. Apparently, the actor was caught smoking, yelling out vulgarities and – well, let’s face it – just being an ass.

Survivor is 28 Seasons In & Still Going Strong

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, Reality Check, Television | Leave a comment

survivor cast

I’ve written at length about Survivor, and why it is one of the most relevant shows on TV in capturing our society and our humanity in its fullness, both the redemptive and the fallen aspects… and everything in between.

The new season is 4 episodes in, with 5 of the 18 brand-new castaways eliminated in Tribal Councils. The season began with 18 castaways split into three tribes designated as Brawn, Beauty, and Brains.

After 4 eliminations (3 of which involved the Brains tribe failing miserably, only to leave three of my favorite players of the season as survivors that are now positioned to do well this season), the three tribes became two, resulting in the powerful becoming powerless and the blindside of a former NBA All-Star.

Claire, Andi, and Nikki

Oh Juan Pablo, my friend, what have you done? You had these girls on a string, but something has gone horribly wrong.

You were handed everything on a silver platter. 27 girls showed up at your front door wanting to fall in love with you, wanting to mother your current and future children, and dying for a wildly over-the-top wedding funded by ABC and officiated by Chris Harrison with a guest list full of reality television rejects.

Juan Pablo, all you had to do was smile, listen, and let the girls do all of the talking—all of it. You did so well for so long…

But you blew it. You just had to open your trap in the fantasy suite to the one girl who actually has the ability to listen and process information without her brain function being block by the thought of Neil Lane fitting her for a 4-carat diamond engagement ring.

Let’s get to this nonsense. Here’s what we learned last night… Read more

Juan Pablo does America!

Juan Pablo with Renee and her mute son.

Juan Pablo’s frequent flyer miles outweighed the entertainment value of what was a dull episode of The Bachelor last night. Now I know why ABC is giving us two episodes this week—they’re apologizing for a snoozer of a hometown episode. Claire’s (Clay-er’s) family of middle-aged women and a mute mother were the only redeeming quality, but we’ll get more into that rag-tag group later.

Instead of a list of what we learned last night, I’m going to rank the families. Here are the rules…

Each family will start with 100 points. From there I will deduct points in a totally subjective way with no clear pattern. This is of course mirroring the perfectly broken system used in Olympic figure stating. The families are ranked from 1st to 4th.

Let’s begin… Read more
