The New Steve Jobs Movie Looks Better Than The Last Steve Jobs Movie

The New Steve Jobs Movie Looks Better Than The Last Steve Jobs Movie

Here’s how much of a bad idea JOBS, the previous Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher was: it was almost called iJOBS. It’s like the producers knew it would be read as an accidental comedy no matter what they tried to do. The new Steve Jobs biopic, appropriately titled Steve Jobs, seems to be making every effort to avoid that same problem.

‘Ex Machina’ Has As Much To Say About Men And Women As It Does A.I.

‘Ex Machina’ Has As Much To Say About Men And Women As It Does A.I.

It’s been another solid blockbuster season at the movies. Mad Max: Fury Road managed to be the rare thought-provoking action movie, Jurassic World seems to have reignited everyone’s inner 10-year-old and, even though it ultimately felt like the year’s least interesting offering, I enjoyed the odd lighter beats in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

‘Dragon Blade’ looks like a ton of historical fun

‘Dragon Blade’ looks like a ton of historical fun

I mean “historical” fun, of course. There’s no other way to accurately describe John Cusack playing Roman general Lucius n a historical epic about war with the Han dynasty along the fabled Silk Road. Adrien Brody and Jackie Chan star alongside Cusack as rival Roman general Tiberius and Han dynasty commander Huo An.

John Oliver Says The Internet Sucks For Women

John Oliver Says The Internet Sucks For Women

Enjoying your time on The Internet today? Me too. You know who isn’t? Anybody being dismissed for having an opinion or worse, threatened with rape and murder because of the genitals they inherited through what seems to be genetic fluke. If you can’t figure out why this is in any way disturbing or problematic (I know you’re out there), maybe you should watch John Oliver explain the deep, dark corners of The Internet.

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are back in ‘Daddy’s Home’

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg are back in ‘Daddy’s Home’

The second I hear the word “daddy” I picture The Rock. Dwayne Johnson has managed to train an almost Pavlovian response into me, and because we’re talking about The Rock, the second I think about him I start grinning. This post has nothing to do with The Rock though. It’s just about a movie called Daddy’s Home (there he is again) that reunites The Other Guys stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg after five years of both started doing kinda shitty movies despite their general awesomeness.

Listen To Our ‘Shamanic Bad Times’ Playlist

Listen To Our ‘Shamanic Bad Times’ Playlist

It’s a good day for a playlist that’s all commiserations for the bad times. Last week’s list offered a selection of pretty contemporary stuff that I have in heavy rotation right now – some Kendrick Lamar, Jamie xx, Unknown Mortal Orchestra. That’s the stuff that keeps me engaged during a daily routine that involves staring into a computer screen from a chair all day.

Foals Tease Newer, Angrier Foals

Foals Tease Newer, Angrier Foals

Maybe you saw FOALS when they came down to South Africa last year. Maybe you didn’t. Whatever. They’ve released this short video that implies we’re about to get new FOALS. And it looks like it’s going to be a lot more of that newer, angrier FOALS that was lurking beneath the surface of much of their last album, Holy Fire

Pac-Man Invades Hong Kong, Is The Actual Flavour Of The Day

Pac-Man Invades Hong Kong, Is The Actual Flavour Of The Day

It’s been a grueling 24 hours in the adult world, folks. I want out. I want back to the simpler, kinder days when all I had to do was consume, drop e, party and eat ghosts. No wait, that’s Pac-Man. I’m always getting myself confused with famous 1980s gaming icons.

John Oliver Eats All The Stuff He Said He Would If Sepp Blatter Quits

John Oliver Eats All The Stuff He Said He Would If Sepp Blatter Quits

On last week’s uh Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver assured viewers that if the various sponsors of the FIFA World Cup were to put pressure on the football organization to oust former president Sepp Blatter, he’d wear a terrible pair of Adidas, drink a Bud Light Lime and take a bite out of every item of McDonald’s dollar menu.

The Caitlyn Jenner Hate Parade

The Caitlyn Jenner Hate Parade

We live in the era of the constant refresh. Something appears in one of our feeds and we jump in to join the conversation; Like, Share and boom, we’re out. We don’t really care about the struggles of any community in the world, or much of anything really. We certainly don’t care about Caitlyn Jenner
