Jimmy Fallon Imagines a (Terrifying) World With a Donald Trump-Owned News Network

February 23, 2017

Are you sick of the dishonest liberal media constantly spreading fake news? Do you cringe at the thought of any fact that isn’t an “alternative” one that suits your beliefs? Would you prefer to hear about imaginary terror attacks in Sweden rather than the current refugee crisis? Then Trump News Network is probably for you! Like Alec Baldwin on SNL, Jimmy Fallon is choosing to deal with the everyday absurdity of our nation’s president with humor (a welcome change from humanizing a man who brags about sexual assault). His skit on The Tonight Show on Tuesday, though funny, feels all too real as he imagines a world with a Trump-owned news network. “It’s the only news network that’s 100 percent fair and 112 percent factual,” he jokes, before warning everyone that a Godzilla attack on Finland is imminent.

17 Lucky Guys Who Have Fallen For Drew Barrymore

February 22, 2017

Drew Barrymore has been in the spotlight for over four decades, but there are probably still some things you may not know about her, including her dating history. While Drew is back on the market after ending her marriage to Will Kopelman in April, the actress and mom of two has been vocal about her fondness for falling in love; over the years, Drew has dated fellow Hollywood stars like Justin Long, Luke Wilson, and director Spike Jonze, as well as musicians Fabrizio Moretti and Eric Erlandson – and she’s even guilty of “ghosting” on Christian Bale after one date back in the ’80s!

‘Get Out’ scores a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes

February 22, 2017

If you’re looking for a movie to see this weekend Get Out may be the film for you. Jordan Peele’s directorial debut has accomplished quite a rarity for a horror film; it has scored a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

While this can obviously change as more reviews come in, currently all thirty submitted reviews including top critics from Rolling Stone, Village Voice, New Yorker, IndieWire, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter (to name just a few) are singing the praises of both the film in general and Peele.

Many have cited how the satirical elements tie in perfectly with the horror elements comparing Peele’s genre subversion to peak John Carpenter. Film Journal International has been quoted saying that Peele is an “assured filmmaker with a most promising career ahead.”

Several reviews have also mentioned how the film fits in to our current political climate with one even going as far as to say that it essentially gives former Obama supporters who ended up voting for Trump and the “All Lives Matter” brigade a well deserved punch in the face.

In contrast, the IMDb ratings aren’t awesome, but a quick glance at the breakdown as well as peaking into user reviews, some of which cite it as “Alt-Left Propaganda” basically confirms that a lot of the ratings there are by butt hurt people who have never even seen the film much like the treatment that Ghostbusters received last year long before it ever screened anywhere.

Film Synopsis:
Now that Chris and his girlfriend, Rose, have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.
