‘Saturday Night Live’s Halloween 2016: One Trick, One Treat

There was nothing to match Bill Hader’s 2008 “Vincent Price’s Halloween Special”, but Saturday Night Live offered up one seasonal treat – and, not so happily, one trick – last night. The treat was the digital short “A Girl’s Halloween,” with Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong and Vanessa Bayer getting kittened up for a New York City Halloween, all cute whiskers and no-drink promises. Flashforward to a very sloppy night on the town, full of tears, tumbles, recriminations and, in…

Antalya: Turkish helmer Yeşim Ustaoğlu on Her Feminist Drama ‘Clair-Obscur’

ANTALYA, Turkey — Not long after her new movie, “Clair-Obscur,” world premiered in Toronto, an audience member asked the acclaimed Turkish helmer Yeşim Ustaoğlu how the powerful, provocative film would fare back home, at a time of growing conservatism in her country. Sharing her concern with a packed house after a recent screening in Antalya, the director laughed… Read more »

AT&T Q3 Revenue Miss Highlights Urgency Behind Time Warner Deal

After AT&T’s Saturday-night surprise announcement of the Time Warner takeover, it also released Q3 earnings. Originally, the telco was… Read more »

Leslie Jones Fires Back At Hackers While Tom Hanks Soothes Troubled Nation On ‘Saturday Night Live’

Leslie Jones took on the trolls – the internet kind, not the Halloween variety – on NBC’s Saturday Night Live last night, blasting both the idiots who last summer hacked into her computer and the deplorable haters who posted vile racist and sexist insults on her Twitter page.
“I don’t know if you all know this about me,” Jones said during a spirited visit to the Weekend Update desk, “but I ain’t shy. I keep my porn in a folder labeled PORN. If you want to see Leslie Jones…

Film Review: ‘Doctor Strange’

Although Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange” offers very few insights into the childhood of its main character, applying what we know about bullying on American schoolyards, it’s safe to assume it wasn’t easy growing up with a name like Stephen Strange. Perhaps that explains the complex that has driven Strange (that rare superhero who keeps his… Read more »

‘Madea’ Gets Saturday Treat As ‘Jack Reacher’ Trips; ‘Joneses’ Lower Than ‘Masterminds’ – Sat. PM Udate

UPDATED, Sat. 11:22 PM: Strong matinees turned into a formidable Saturday night for Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween as the Lionsgate film rose 20% from Friday night to take an estimated $11.3M, which means its three-day cume is now hovering around $26.8M. Paramount’s Jack Reacher: Never Go Back will chase in about $8.5M after dropping roughly 4% Saturday following flat matinee business. The estimated cume is around what we were hearing this afternoon — $22.7M. That…

I am – Hercules!!
AMC says of tonight’s “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be”:
“Last season ended with Rick and our group kneeling helplessly before Negan and his group; what Negan does will haunt those who survive forever.”
The next two episodes are titled “The Well” and “The Cell.”
There is a persistent rumor regarding who Negan kills tonight. But what if that rumor proves wrong?

April’s season finale was the lowest-rated “Walking Dead” season finale since 2013. It was also the first season finale that didn’t do as well as the season finale that preceded it. I blame the craptacular Robert Kirkman-written “Fear The Walking Dead” for diminishing the entire brand.

Herc’s Seen Tonight’s WESTWORLD & LAST MAN ON EARTH!! Scott Gimple On TALKING DEAD!!

Herc’s Seen Tonight’s WESTWORLD & LAST MAN ON EARTH!! Scott Gimple On TALKING DEAD!! More ASH VS EVIL DEAD!! Sunday TV Talkback!!

Lee Majors, Ted Raimi, Lucy Lawless, Bruce Campbell and Ash’s Delta sedan sold some monumentally dark and hilarious comedy on last week’s “Ash Vs Evil Dead.” I continue to enjoy the second season better than the wonderful first and give thanks to Starz for ordering a third season of the finest half-hour on television. The channel says of tonight’s “DUI”:
Ash is hunted as he searches for Delta; Ruby and Kelly battle the evil spawn; Pablo suffers from a new Necronomicon condition.

“I think there may be something wrong with this world. Something underneath,” Dolores tell Geoffrey Wright’s character early in tonight’s “Westworld.” Maybe she’s the only character in this series who knows that Wright is secretly playing a robot too.
We learn tonight that outside the park the Ed Harris character is at least a little famous, and that he knows about Ford’s partner Arnold. “This whole world is a story,” The Man In Black tells his robot companion tonight. “I’ve read every page except the last one.” That robot companion hears a lot more intriguing stuff before the hour is up.
Jonathan Nolan scripted tonight’s “Westworld,” which I judge as its best episode since the series premiere. HBO says of tonight’s “Dissonance Theory”:
Dolores joins William and Logan on a bounty hunt in the badlands. The Man in Black, with Lawrence in tow, finds a critical clue in his search to unlock the maze. Dr. Ford and Theresa discuss the future of the park. Maeve is troubled by a recurring vision.
