Minus The Bear picks its 5 biggest musical influences, from Pink Floyd to The Cardigans

18 minutes ago

The last time we saw the guys from Minus The Bear, they were destroying our Undercover sign during an awesome cover of Fugazi’s “Waiting Room.” A couple months after the fact and we’ve (mostly) forgiven them. To bury the hatchet, we sat down with them at this year’s Riot Fest in Chicago to talk about their biggest…

Future Man's science lab caper is one for the gobulator

2 hours ago

Most of “A Fuel’s Errand” is sort of like a compressed second act, hitting beats that the movie version of Future Man might have gotten to after an hour or so. Josh is kicked off the anti-Biotic team in the wake of his failures in the last episode and the discovery that he is, in fact, a janitor. (Tiger adds insult to…

Meet the guy who yelled “finish him” on Mortal Kombat, be disillusioned forever

4 hours ago

There was a smoky, satanic quality to the voice that urged you to “finish him” after crushing an opponent in Mortal Kombat; it was easy to imagine it echoing from beneath Shao Kahn’s skull mask as he watched you battle from his gilded throne. If that’s an image you’d like to maintain, it might be best to skip the…

David Alan Grier to star in Cool Kids pilot from the It's Always Sunny gang

18 hours ago

Back in September, we reported that Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, and Glenn Howerton from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia were developing a pilot for Fox called The Cool Kids. As we noted at the time, the pilot is set in a retirement home and centers on a group of popular residents whose rule over the facility begins…

Liz Phair is writing not one, but two books

18 hours ago

’90s indie rock star Liz Phair is getting into the writing game, and not in a small way: Variety reports that Random House has signed a two-deal book with the Exile In Guyville singer-songwriter, who recently toured as an opener for her old pals in The Smashing Pumpkins. To be fair, Phair’s lyrics were always a big…

Forget Fashion Week: Liris Crosse is the real winner of this season’s Project Runway

20 hours ago

As Project Runway concludes its 16th season, it’s not uncommon to find yourself disagreeing with the judges’ final pick. I still think last season’s winner, Erin Robertson, was more of a stylist than a visionary, someone who really knew her way around a glue gun. But what makes this year’s finale unique is that, even…

Our critics debate the merits of DC's Justice League

22 hours ago

It’s been more than a year and a half since A.V. Club’s A.A. Dowd and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky last sat down to debate the merits (or lack thereof) of a Zack Snyder superhero movie. But now, duty calls them to return to the bombastic Snyder-verse with a look at Justice League, an intentional course-correction for the DC…

World's most expensive painting sells for $450 million, kind of sucks

22 hours ago

We don’t profess to be art critics here at The A.V. Club, but we do understand (vaguely) that $450.3 million is a lot of money. (A quick Google search suggests that it’s enough money to buy a first-season DVD set of the TV show Alf 52,914,218 and a half times over, in case that helps you put it into context.) That…

The animated trifle The Star passes the Nativity through its ass

23 hours ago

It’s a cute idea, making an animated film about the animals of the Nativity—Mary and Joseph’s donkey, the wise men’s camels, the shepherds’ sheep, and so on. Never mind that most of these are later inventions; the texts of the gospels and the Old Testament teem with animals and animal metaphors (not to mention all…

As unlikely as it sounds, Trump may have lied about how much his company is worth

16 November 2017 12:46 PM, PST

Donald Trump is the world’s greatest businessman, a real estate genius who is so rich that he can coat everything he owns in gold and whose most easily recognizable trait is not his specific hairstyle or the size of his hands, but the enormity of his various secret bank accounts. He’s also a brilliant negotiator who…

Future Man returns to 2017 for some ethical stalling

16 November 2017 10:00 AM, PST

Future Man was originally intended as a movie, and it shows: each episode manages to mostly hit one beat of a story that’s pretty easy to imagine as a 90-minute film. In this case, “A Riphole In Time” focuses on one of the lamer beats that tends to populate the type of movie Future Man is cribbing from: the hero’s…

Watch Drake stop a show and threaten to fuck a dude up for groping women

16 November 2017 9:05 AM, PST

Concerts of any genre are hotbeds of unwanted contact, but do not for a second think about being a creep at a Drake show. At an Australian after-party recently, Drake stopped “Know Yourself” dead in its tracks to lean out in the crowd and tell some dude to knock it the fuck off. “Yo, stop that shit. If you don’t stop…

Chicago, find out what it means to be young with Streets Of Fire on 70mm

16 November 2017 8:00 AM, PST

Every once in a while, we like to give our fellow Chicagoans the opportunity to come see a midnight movie at the Music Box, courtesy of our friends at The Front Row. This week, we’ve got another hot one: A special screening of Walter Hill’s under-appreciated 1984 rock ‘n’ roll musical Streets Of Fire, presented in an…

New York's Plaza Hotel is offering a pricey Home Alone 2 anniversary package

15 November 2017 7:01 PM, PST

Home Alone 2: Lost In New York isn’t as good as the first movie, but at least it has some fun nonsense with Kevin McCallister hanging around New York’s Plaza Hotel, coming up with schemes to freak out Tim Curry and watching violent mobster movies. Apparently pleased with its major role in a movie that some people kind…

Paul Scheer says his Galaxy Quest show will have two separate casts

15 November 2017 5:43 PM, PST

In August, we reported that Amazon had tapped Paul Scheer to write a TV adaptation of Galaxy Quest, the meta sci-fi comedy film that was essentially about the cast of a Star Trek show going on a real space adventure. We didn’t know anything about Scheer’s version at the time, but there were rumors that producers were…

Quick-witted and quotable, The Trixie & Katya Show is a soothing balm on the inflamed rash that is 2017

15 November 2017 4:30 PM, PST

When real life is too much—and in 2017, every day is too much—pop culture’s first impulse is to escape into fantasy. And who knows more about fantasy than drag queens? Thus far, the RuPaul’s Drag Race industrial complex has produced two TV spinoffs (Drag U and RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race), an aftershow of sorts in…

Jeff Daniels and the cast of Godless aren’t sure why we romanticize the Old West

15 November 2017 2:00 PM, PST

Netflix’s Godless is set in the Old West and follows notorious criminal Frank Griffin (played by Jeff Daniels) and his gang of outlaws on a mission of revenge. It’s the latest entry in Hollywood’s long history of television and film set in the Old West. In the video above, we asked the cast of GodlessJeff Daniels,…

NBC is developing the first network drama with a majority Asian cast

15 November 2017 12:43 PM, PST

Although South Korea is famous worldwide for its TV dramas and the obsessive fandom that surrounds them, on American TV, shows with majority Asian casts have been relegated to the sitcom world. (And it’s not like there have been a ton of those, either. At the moment, there’s only one: ABC’s Fresh Off The Boat.) That’s…
