What will & should win Best Comedy at the Emmys?

"If Veep wins I won’t complain. Really smart series that ended on a perfect note." - Lucky

"Russian Doll is probably the most affecting show I watched over the last year. It's brilliant and I love it - but as you say, its format and its tone is not at all friendly to it winning this. I" - ScottC

"Fleabag: Exhilarating, high wire stuff. Any episode is a masterclass of writing." -Arkaan

numbers from box office mojo 

 

The Hero is doing well in limited release which is happy news. It's writer/director Brett Haley's follow up to his sleeper success I'll See You In My Dreams. He wrote it just for Sam Elliott, who turned in such good work in that breakthrough film. Elliott is excellent as a former movie star with cancer who is thrown by renewed interest in his career and a younger woman's (Laura Prepon) interest. 

In other important news, Wonder Woman will overtake Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this coming week to become the year's second highest grosser (behind Disney's Beauty & The Beast karaoke) and the 3rd highest grosser in Warner Bros history just behind Chris Nolan's Batman movies and ahead of Harry Potter's finale!.

She's a wonder, Wonder Woman 🎵

Trailer Leftovers: "Alien", "Snatched", and "Apes"

Chris here, still nursing our holiday hangover. To go with the massive amount of films descending upon the multiplexes at the holiday season, there is always an equally large amount of trailers to catch up to. Let's revisit the gluttony by reheating some trailer leftovers we've yet to discuss here, including Goldie Hawn's comeback vehicle Snatched, the hyperviolent & NSFW first look at Alien: Covenant, and the next installment of those damn dirty Apes!
