Flavorwire’s Guide to 2015 Summer Movies

This Friday, just like the first weekend of every May since 2007, a new movie based on a Marvel comic book will open in thousands of theaters across the country, will make all the money, and will serve as the official starter pistol for summer movie season. And for many a seasoned moviegoer, that’s a cue for despair; after all, summer has become synonymous with big, bloated, stupid blockbusters of the Transformers school. And make no mistake, there’s plenty of those on the runway this season (how ya doin’, Terminator Genisys, it’s pretty funny that you’re actually going with that spelling). But don’t go into cinematic hibernation just yet; there’s also a steady stream of first-rate indie-flick counterprogramming on the runway, and some of the big movies actually sound pretty good. So, as a public service to you, the discerning moviegoer, we’ve assembled a month-by-month look at what might actually be worth your time and… Read More

10 ‘Saturday Night Live’ Sketches Whose Only Joke Is Two Men Kissing

Sunday night, NBC will celebrate 40 years of Saturday Night Live with the SNL 40th Anniversary Special, a three-hour event featuring appearances from past cast members, hosts, and musical guests. SNL has a rich history that is certainly worthy of tribute — and there has been no shortage of them on the Internet this week. But, as everyone knows, it’s also a show that has run out of steam in recent years. While the episodes are never exactly bad, the comedy has a tendency to rehash one trite and tired joke: men kissing men. It’s the show’s laziest “punchline,” and one that is never very funny. Here are ten SNL sketches that rely on this boring joke. … Read More

Can Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd’s ‘They Came Together’ Save the Spoof Comedy?

There are few things more pretentious and self-serving than quoting yourself, but hopefully I’ll offset that quality by quoting myself being wrong about something. “The spoof movie is dead,” your film editor wrote on these pages, back in November, “and The Starving Games is just a phantom moan from a long-closed coffin.” You can understand my hopelessness; after all, I’d just sat through the latest “spoof” “comedy” from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the talentless hacks who all but single-handedly destroyed the parody movie as a viable comedy subgenre. But the good news is the spoof movie may have risen from the dead, Dracula (or, more appropriately, Dracula: Dead and Loving It) style, thanks to director David Wain and his co-writer Michael Showalter, whose rom-com send-up They Came Together is as funny a film as I’ve seen in a good, long while. … Read More
