No Identity, No Buzz, No Great Content, and No viewership. The TRL revival looks to be short-lived if things don’t improve ASAP. The revival of TRL is one that sounds good on paper, but even if they have brought back everyone from the original show in the original format, you simply can’t bring back the era that was the late 90s and early 2000s and MTV is finding that out the hard way.
Months after the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and inspired by Superman’s apparent sacrifice for humanity, Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince assemble a team of metahumans consisting of Barry Allen, Arthur Curry, and Victor Stone to face the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons, who are on the hunt for three Mother Boxes on Earth.
Visually the film earns the highest marks but storytelling drags down what could have been a film of the year candidate into a sci-fi thriller that is 45 minutes too long. The plot isn’t interesting enough to justify the runtime and the twist ends the film on a flat note rather than an emotional one. Oscar nominations all around for the technical team here otherwise this film is a hard sell for your average moviegoer who needs to clear their schedule to experience Blade Runner 2049.
At the end of the day, this isn’t about whether these guys have the right to say and do the things that they do. The argument is has late night comedy become too political to still be considered comedy? If you are a long time viewer of late night TV, can you still watch the current crop of shows and separate art from politics or has the current trend made it impossible to do so?
Last year I reviewed Digimon Adventure Tri. Chapter 1: Reunion. It was the first Digimon animated series based on the original characters in 16 years. A crisp new animation style to continue a story that fans have waited for since their teens. I really enjoyed the first chapter, but watching the next three gave me more questions than answers.
It is not every day you get the opportunity to watch a film in theatres that has 0% on Rotten Tomatoes (according to critics that is). I’ve been barking at RT critics for years now for their flawed rating system and biased reviews, the only real question here is, Does Flatliners deserve it’s 0% rating?…No.
Popular YouTuber Zach, who runs the channel Diversity & Comics, a channel that reviews many of the latest comics from various major publishers has found himself becoming public enemy #1 within the industry. So much so that comic book writers are not only blocking him on Twitter, they are blocking ANYONE who dare follows him on Twitter as well…including me.
Looking to lick the wounds of The Mummy, a film that was not only a critical flop, a monetary flop (95 Million dollar loss), but it may have killed Universal’s Dark Universe before it even started. Tom Cruise is hoping everyone forgets about that film as his latest project, American Made hit theaters.
No matter which side of the story you choose to believe, this latest development now has a lot of questions that need to be answered. Why did Disney step in and make the save for a struggling TV show? Did Disney also have input when it came to canceling Tim Allen’s show from the network? Why would they cancel a highly rated show while admittedly struggling for ratings with their other TV programs?
ABC claims the reason for their cancellation was the reason they cancelled the show was the did not want to continue comedies on the network for Friday night, I night they ironically use to thrive in with their T.G.I.F. lineup in the late 80s – early 90s. So if they simply didn’t want comedy on Friday nights, why not move the show to a new night?

If NFL players protest the anthem tomorrow in the wake of Trump’s comments, fans of the NFL who are already upset with the protest might see it as the last straw to give up on the NFL product and ratings have been down the last couple of years. If the NFL listens to Trump and tries to downplay the protest, the backlash of left-wing activist groups like BLM and others will be swift and loud. The NFL might not like it, but they have the problem on their hands and they have to pick a side. Take the fight to Trump at the possible expense of their fanbase or take a stand for their profit margin and distance themselves from the Anthem Protests.
Kingsman: The Secret Service set a high bar that Golden Circle simply couldn’t match, but Kingsman: The Golden Circle is still a fun enjoyable movie. Escapism is the key and Kingsman excels at being the Bond movie that Bond movies can’t be anymore…crude, violent, funny, and self-aware. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a solid popcorn flick to end a painful Summer Blockbuster season.
