The Finer Podcast: Chatting with Marlon Wayans About ‘A Haunted House 2′ and Other Things

DSC_6034.NEF

This is the second time I have interviewed Marlon Wayans (here was the first time). That means we are good friends now.

Coming from the illustrious Wayans Dynasty of comedy, Marlon brings us the second installment of A Haunted House, which continues his knack for skewering popular movies and all their tropes. It seems like you know you’re movie has officially reached full pop culture…

'Inside Amy Schumer' Gets the Sorkinian Treatment and it is Glorious

‘Inside Amy Schumer’ Gets the Sorkinian Treatment and it is Glorious

amy_schumer

If you aren’t watching Inside Amy Schumer you’re going to regret it. You won’t be able to say, “I knew about Amy Schumer before it was cool to like her” when she becomes this big-time comedic actress in the forthcoming Judd Apatow movie Trainwreck — which is written by Schumer BTW.

Her show is easily becoming a favorite because of her beautiful combination of raunchy, snide, irreverent, pop…

The ‘Gone Girl’ Trailer Makes Me Feel Uncomfortable and Awkward

The ‘Gone Girl’ Trailer Makes Me Feel Uncomfortable and Awkward

o-GONE-GIRL-TRAILER-facebook

As soon as the best-selling novel Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn was penetrating pop culture, I knew they were going to make a movie adaptation. This, of course, would save me the trouble of reading the book because…why bother right? Why take the time out of your busy life to read text when you could watching moving pictures on a huge screen?!

I was on board with the movie as soon as I heard David…

My Rambling, Unstructured Thoughts About ‘Under the Skin’

My Rambling, Unstructured Thoughts About ‘Under the Skin’

under_the_skin

I had a lot of feelings when I was watching Under the Skin, some of them good, some of them bad. But not once did I comprehend every single thing that was happening on the screen during Jonathan Glazer‘s experimental sci-fi romp — but that is what made it interesting. Would I watch it again? Probably not. But at least I can rest easy knowing that the movie spawned that glorious meme of Scarlett…

My Favorite Memory of the Ultimate Warrior

My Favorite Memory of the Ultimate Warrior

The ultimate warrior (9)

The other day, I was bombarded with an onslaught of pop culture news. First, I saw a very slimmed down Anna Gunn guest starring on The Mindy Project, then I saw Wayne Brady and Mike Tyson reenacting Bobby Brown‘s classic “Every Little Step” music video but all of that joy was immediately deflated by the news of The Ultimate Warrior (a.k.a. James Hellwig) passing away. The WWF icon was only 54…

Sisaundra Lewis is this Season’s Judith Hill on ‘The Voice’

sisaundra

Sisaundra Lewis performed a grown woman version of Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind” last night on The Voice and it pretty much cemented her as the best thing on the show.

This season of the reality singing competition has been — in a word — boring. Each season always seems to have at least one talented singer who is good. So good that it’s making the show worth my time. Last season it was…
