The Best and Worst of Last Night’s ‘SNL’ with Jim Carrey

Lucky for us, Jim Carrey’s publicity rounds for Dumb and Dumber To just happen to coincide with SNL’s 40th anniversary celebrations. The rubber-faced funnyman auditioned to be a cast member during the 1980-1981 season, but was turned down for the part. He has, however, hosted the show twice before, so he’s in familiar territory. And let’s not forget his stint on another sketch comedy series, the Wayans brothers-created In Living Color. Iggy Azalea joins Carrey on the SNL stage, performing “Fancy” sans Charli XCX (and true Clueless attire) and her recently debuted single “Beg for It” (which contains a little Notorious B.I.G. reference). This is also Leslie Jones’ first appearance as a featured player, and we expect greatness as usual. See how the evening played out, below. … Read More

The Apocalypse is Coming, But At Least We Can Hug: Links You Need to See

It’s going to be really difficult to write something uplifting here, guys, regardless of the fact that it’s Friday. Ebola has come to New York and everybody is being so dumb about it. Amazon is getting what it deserves and losing money, which is fine, but what will we do if Bezos’ behemoth crashes and we have to go to the store for something? That sounds like the apocalypse to me. True horror. This is also horrible, but luckily fictional: Someone has cut together all of these nice, awful cinema deaths for you to watch and be conveniently grossed out over. … Read More

Jim Carrey Proves He’s Still Gloriously Rubber-Faced in SNL Promo

‘Eternal Sunshine’ Destroyed the Manic Pixie Dream Girl Stereotype Before It Even Existed

On the tenth anniversary of its theatrical release, plenty still sticks out in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. There’s the seamless, low-budget blend of sci-fi and romance. There’s the trippy visuals, starting with a blue hairdo that puts Lea Seydoux’s to shame. Oh, and there’s Jim Carrey’s refreshingly non-terrifying appearance. But a re-watch of Michel Gondry and Charlie Kaufman’s dorm-room staple, ten years down the road, reveals an achievement viewers in 2004 literally didn’t have the words to articulate: a rebuttal to the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope, back when Zooey Deschanel was still the lady from Elf.  … Read More

Now That Publicists Control Interviews, Let’s Thank Twitter for Revealing Which Celebrities Are Secretly Terrible

Back in 1970, Esquire ran a remarkable Lee Marvin interview, conducted by Roger Ebert. Actually, “conducted” is a bit of a strong word; as was his style in those days, he merely sat back and observed, the piece less a Q&A and more a series of impressions of the man. Marvin, who was drunk when the session began, spends the afternoon drinking more beer, listening to records, groping his girlfriend, joking about his infidelities, and talking shit. It’s a great interview — and the kind of thing you can’t imagine any star doing today. “These days the publicists only want to present the soundbite opportunity,” Ebert said of the piece years later, and he was right. We seldom get the chance to observe actors being, it seems, anything close to their actual selves. Except on Twitter. And that brings us to Jason Biggs, who (in this and many other ways) is no Lee Marvin. … Read More

10 Movies to Stream Before They Disappear from Netflix Instant

It’s not quite Streamageddon, but as you may’ve heard, Netflix apparently had some contracts that end with 2013, and thus we have one of the streaming service’s occasional purges of valuable catalog titles. And it would’ve happened fairly quietly too, were it not for good ol’ Reddit, where someone painstakingly checked out the individual pages for God-knows-how-many titles and came up with a list of nearly 100 movies and TV shows scheduled to disappear from Netflix Instant on 1/1/2014. There’s some genuinely great stuff in here, proving yet again that this whole “phasing out of physical media for ephemeral streaming that comes and goes as it pleases” thing should give us all pause, but there’s no time for that—there’s barely twelve hours of 2013 left, and you’re about to lose some great movies. So if you’re planning on making New Year’s Eve a movie night, here’s a few soon-to-expire suggestions: … Read More
