‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ is Smarter and Ballsier Than You Think

By most reasonable standards, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is a stupid, stupid movie — gleefully so, even. It concerns the further adventures of super-dim television news anchor Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), for starters. It includes a relationship between his even-stupider weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) and his comparably-witted new lady love (Kristen Wiig) that basically amounts to two people blurting non-sequiturs at each other. Sports correspondent Champ Kind (David Koechner) owns a chicken restaurant, but confesses to serving deep-fried bats. Ron has a brief relationship with his African-American boss (Meagan Good), and their interracial sex scene is intercut with a clip from Diff’rent Strokes. And so on; you get the idea. But co-writer/star Ferrell and his frequent collaborator, co-writer/director Adam McKay, are up to something else here, slyly sneaking in several pointed jabs at television news in general and cable news in particular. … Read More

The Best and Worst of Last Night’s ‘SNL’ with Paul Rudd

Last night was Paul Rudd’s third time hosting SNL, and the Anchorman actor was ready to nail it — with reinforcements. The episode didn’t work to play to Rudd’s comedic talents as much as it showcased a number of past cast members (and a former head writer), leaving us to wonder how several of SNL’s 16 current players (most ridiculously underused) spend their time during moments like these. It was a safe episode, with a few passable funnies — all featured, below. … Read More

Flavorwire’s Guide to Indie Flicks to See in October

October is upon us, and the race whose name we dare not speak is getting competitive: this month sees the release of such awards bait as 12 Years a Slave, Captain Phillips, The Fifth Estate, All Is Lost, and, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. (What? It could happen — they love it when actors age up.) Meanwhile, it’s a quieter month for indie releases, but there are still several smaller pictures worth seeking out; our recommendations for the month are after the jump. … Read More

Flavorwire’s Guide to Indie Flicks to See in August

We’re almost there, you guys. We’re almost there. Soon the summer movie season — which this year seemed even louder, uglier, and dumber than ever, though that could just be me getting old — will draw to a close, and the fall will begin. Hollywood, with an eye on those little gold statues, will release movies with, oh, nuance and complexity and that sort of thing. But you don’t have to wait until September; the indies are getting a jump on the majors, countering Blockbuster Fatigue™ with some truly marvelous limited… Read More
