A ‘Full House’ revival is in the works

Yesterday, when I saw on that a Full House revival was in the works, I stood up and screamed, HAVE MERCY! (Okay, not really, maybe just in my head). But here are the details: “The show’s creator Jeff Franklin would pen the potential revival, with original executive producer Bob Boyett also on board. Castmembers […]

The two standout moments from the 2014 Emmy Awards

If you stayed with the 2014 Emmy Awards Monday night, you probably thought it was a boring, lackluster production with few surprises. And maybe you were a little miffed that Modern Family won so many awards when there are bolder, funnier comedies on television right now. But if you tuned in for that first hour, […]

Fangs for the memories: Where did ‘True Blood’ go wrong?

This final season of True Blood has felt akin to watching an accountant balance a ledger. Each character and plot thread is being treated as an open account that needs to be squared before the end of the month. It feels very safe, comfortable, predictable, and frankly has not been very interesting to watch. Even […]

Watching the 2014 VMAs, AKA the Friendship VMAs

The MTV Video Music Awards are a unique phenomenon in the age of Twitter: It’s like having every celebrity scandal of the year happen all within the span of two hours, and also someone occasionally sings or something. AP Party columnists like myself and Samantha Murray unabashedly love this annual festival of complete nonsense and sometimes shockingly […]


Ranking the fake films of ‘Seinfeld’

It’s happened to all of us: You’re watching an episode of Seinfeld where they mention going to see a movie and you think to yourself, “Man, that sounds like something I’d actually want to see.” The fake movies in Seinfeld usually sound better than what’s actually playing in real theaters. But how would you rank […]

Yes, really — Lindsay Lohan is writing a memoir

Lindsay Lohan, the 28-year-old who looks 58 years old, and professional rehab dropout who occasionally acts (like a moron) is apparently working on a memoir. Lohan is about to begin rehearsals for her theatrical debut in David Mamet’s Speed-The-Plow and gave a somewhat lengthy and nonsensical interview to the Daily Mail last week. Before we go any […]


‘The Knick’ and Clive Owen give us TV’s newest antihero

Cinemax’s new series, The Knick, wastes no time in establishing that its main character, Dr. John Thackery (Clive Owen) is TV’s newest antihero, someone you may not be entirely comfortable rooting for as the series progresses. The show opens in 1900 New York City with Thackery in an opium den, and just to remind you […]


Today’s edition of WTF: Kim Kardashian is publishing a book of selfies

I wasn’t sure whether to file this under “How does this shit get published,” “Who would spend $20 on said shit,” “Why is a book of selfies a thing,” or “Why is Kim Kardashian’s book of selfies three-hundred-and-fifty-fucking-two pages?” I’d honestly be more comfortable putting $20 in a trash can and lighting it on fire […]


Connecting the Dots in ‘Boyhood’

Boyhood is a languidly told narrative film with a fantastic, if gimmicky, hook: The film was shot for three days every year over the span of 12 years. Richard Linklater is no stranger to using experimental techniques in mainstream films. In his breakout 1991 film, Slacker, he wove his camera through seemingly disconnected people just […]


When Facebook goes down, people call 911

On Friday, there was a Facebook outage for a short period in the morning. And some people called 911. Seriously. Listen, I’m as anxious as the next person to see whether or not my ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend is prettier than me or not, but Facebook going down IS NOT A LEGITIMATE REASON TO CALL 911! […]


‘Get On Up’ a mess Chadwick Boseman can’t quite save

Based on the trailers, ads and other promotions for the movie, Get On Up looked like it was going to make the big mistake many failed biopics do. In recent years, filmmakers tackling biographies have learned that it’s better to focus on a specific period of the subject’s life, rather than try to fit an […]


‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is a flat-out blast

Much of the advanced press and early reviews for Guardians of the Galaxy touted it as the best Marvel movie ever. Could it really be? I mean, that’s some damn serious praise. As I was watching this movie, I couldn’t help but think how much I would have loved it as a kid. It might […]


‘Sharknado 2′ post-mortem: In praise of Ziering and wanting more gore

For the second consecutive summer, an evening in late July was spent by millions watching a “Sharknado” movie on Syfy. Wednesday night was the premiere of Sharknado 2: The Second One. Not wanting to miss out on the same social media phenomenon as last year during Sharknado’s premiere, the people took to Twitter to snark […]
