John Oliver runs down the specific ways in which "Facebook is a toilet" on Last Week Tonight

After a blisteringly funny opening spent compiling all the new shapes into which conservative commentators are contorting themselves in their frenzied mission to excuse yet another powerful accused Republican sex creep (Jeanine Pirro really needs to stop trying to make “Democratic demon rats” happen), John Oliver…

Insecure's penultimate episode forces Issa to unleash her crazy

B+

This was a difficult episode of Insecure to review. As a standalone episode, it had some of the show’s most hilarious moments of the season. But, when you examine “Obsessed-Like” against the show’s entire third season things start to fall apart. This is the penultimate episode and there’s no real momentum taking us…

The Guild says goodbye to the past on an excellent Venture Bros.

A-

Last week, Doc Venture (along with Billy and Pete) invented a teleportation device that could revolutionize the world, and the Monarch and Gary somehow managed to steal it. This week, that—doesn’t come up at all. Which isn’t a problem! “The Terminus Moderate” is an excellent episode, one of the best of the season so…

Kneel before Luca Guadagnino's masterful Suspiria remake 

Greetings from Fantastic Fest! I’m serving on the Next Wave jury—a first-time filmmaker award—at this year’s festival, which precludes talking about a lot of the films I have seen in the first few days since this year’s edition of the festival kicked off with the American premiere of Halloween on Thursday night.

The other Joker spin-off movie will be about criminal couples counseling 

We’re coming around on Todd Phillips’ Joker movie, which will star Joaquin Phoenix as a refreshingly straightforward version of the Clown Prince Of Crime in a lower-budget superhero drama that just happens to be about a guy in funny makeup, but let’s not forget that Warner Bros. has some other Joker-centric spin-offs…

Chloe Dykstra contemplated suicide after being harassed for assault allegations

In June, actress Chloe Dykstra published a lengthy essay in which she accused an ex-boyfriend of sexually and emotionally abusing her while they were together, and while she didn’t give the man’s name, it was clear from references to him being a “successful podcaster” and “powerhouse CEO of his own company” that…

The Last Man Standing premiere is on Twitter, so maybe Tim Allen can get Trump to watch it

Last Man Standing is coming back from a well-deserved death on ABC for a revival on Fox this week, but if you simply cannot wait to see Tim Allen grunt and roll his eyes at—ugh—women and young people, the Last Man Standing Twitter account has dumped the full premiere online early. Now you can watch a far-too-long meta…

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to compose the score for HBO's Watchmen

Zack Snyder’s Watchmen movie had a memorable soundtrack, with some direct lifts from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ original comic combined with My Chemical Romance covering “Desolation Row,” but HBO’s Watchmen sequel thing is going to go in a direction with a lot more droning industrial music. According to /Film, Trent…
