There are too many characters and too many subplots. Those plots repeat themselves, and characters blurting out inappropriate things that they shouldn’t blurt out is a well it goes to way too many times. But more »

Movie Review: “The Zero Theorem” 

Terry Gilliam’s new film, “The Zero Theorem,” ultimately fails because it lives in the shadow of a pair of movies- “Brazil,” and “Snowpiercer.” Both cover many of the same themes, with one coming from the same director and the other coming out the same year.

Live from New York, it’s new SNL announcer Darrell Hammond 

In its 40 years- save for one of the Lorne Michaels exile years in the early ’80s- Saturday Night Live has had only one full-time announcer, Don Pardo. Pardo, who retired years ago, had even taken in his later years to recording voiceovers from his home in Arizona. But alas, Pardo passed away last month at more »
