Watch the trailer for the second TV series of cult Australian horror ‘Wolf Creek’

TwitterFacebook

The cult Australian horror film which we’re pretty sure would put any tourist off from visiting the country, Wolf Creek, returned as a television series late last year.

Well, it’s back again for a six-part second season, set to premiere on December 15 on Australian streaming service Stan. The announcement was made with a trailer, just in time for Halloween.

The premise is somewhat the same as previous iterations of the series, but this time it’s an entire busload of “soft tourists,” who find themselves running into trouble with the frightening Mick Taylor (played by John Jarratt) in the middle of the country’s outback. Read more…

Seth MacFarlane seemed to hint about the Kevin Spacey allegations back in 2005

TwitterFacebook

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane seems to know a lot more than he gives off.

Following the allegations of sexual assault and harassment against Harvey Weinstein, a clip from the best supporting actress Oscar nominations in 2013 went viral.

MacFarlane made an awkward joke about the nominees, and congratulated them because they “no longer have to be pretend to be attracted” to Weinstein. 

Now in the wake of accusations that Kevin Spacey made sexual advances toward actor Anthony Rapp when Rapp was 14 years old, another clip is making the rounds on social media.  Read more…

It’s a common fixture on the big screen and on TV: love teams. They’re a good source of that much-needed “kilig” in our jaded times. But they also pose a lot of problems in our mainstream consciousness. Real or reel, love teams can be a little problematic and perhaps we need to re-evaluate what they can […]

There’s a mockumentary about that baseball episode of ‘The Simpsons’

TwitterFacebook

The Simpsons has its fair share of classic episodes, and surely “Homer At The Bat” would be up there with the most memorable.

With its enviable list of baseball royalty and highly quotable moments, it’s the perfect subject for a mockumentary, which has been titled Springfield of Dreams: The Legend of Homer Simpson.

The hour-long special set to air on Sunday is produced by Fox Sports and Major League Baseball, featuring Morgan Spurlock of Super Size Me fame as the director, according to EW.

It’ll be a satirical take on Ken Burns’ 1994 miniseries Baseball, with the mockumentary featuring sportscasters like Joe Buck, as well as the players who appear in the episode such as Wade Boggs, Steve Sox and Jose Canseco. Read more…

Comcast is launching a live TV streaming service for cord-cutters

TwitterFacebook

Comcast is launching yet another video streaming service for you to consider purchasing.

The cable giant announced today it’s launching Xfinity Instant TV, what is essentially a bundle of local broadcast networks, for $18 per month. The service will only be available to Comcast broadband subscribers.

The company said the new service is currently available in select areas and will be rolled out nationally in markets where Comcast is offered over the next two weeks.

This type of “over-the-top” offering is far from new. Comcast will be pitting itself against other services such as Sling TV, YouTube TV, and Hulu Live TV that also offer live television over the internet rather than a traditional cable subscription. Read more…

Jimmy Kimmel isn’t done being Senator Bill Cassidy’s biggest pest

TwitterFacebook

When you’re only trying to save health care for 30 million people, you’ve got to be a little persistent.

The man you’d least expect to be on the front foot for saving health care in America, Jimmy Kimmel, is far from resting in his battle to ensure the Graham-Cassidy bill doesn’t cut funding to the most vulnerable. 

Entering into round three of the debate on Thursday night, Kimmel took aim at President Donald Trump, who recently got involved in the debate on Twitter (where else). 

For Kimmel, Trump’s support for the bill is more about politics than it is about a bill that’s, you know, actually good. Read more…
