The Super Bowl breaks a streaming record Print E-mail
Sunday, 07 February 2016
The Super Bowl isn’t meant to be streamed, but there are a lot of people who want to stream the Super Bowl, anyway. And this year there were more than ever: CBS says the Broncos victory over the Panthers had a “record audience” streaming the game. What does that mean in numbers? CBS won’t say, for now. But here are the numbers NBC recorded when it streamed the game a year ago, and also said it broke records: 800,000 average viewers per minute, 1.3 million concurrent users, and 213 total minutes.

Watch the X-Men: Apocalypse Super Bowl trailer Print E-mail
Sunday, 07 February 2016
The first X-Men: Apocalypse trailer served to introduce the titular new baddie (played by Oscar Isaac). In contrast, the Super Bowl spot is way more focused on teasing the summer blockbuster's big action moments: a bevy of surface-to-air missiles launching from a field. A city being destroyed by unclear forces. Olivia Munn (as Psylocke) cutting a car in half. And in the tradition of environmental destruction films, the soundtrack is an old Coldplay song (Don't Panic) slowed down and sung by Clarity. X-Men: Apocalypse will hit theaters May 27th.

Larry David turns into Bernie Sanders in SNL's 'Bern Your Enthusiasm' Print E-mail
Sunday, 07 February 2016
It doesn't take much for Larry David to impersonate Democratic presidential nominee Bernie Sanders — after all, both are balding, somewhat grouchy old Jewish men from Brooklyn. And Saturday Night Live didn't miss the opportunity. With David hosting the show last night, we were treated to the first (and last) episode of Bern Your Enthusiasm. The skit ended up feeling a whole lot like an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, even though David is playing Sanders, not himself. Perhaps that's precisely because David's typical schtick seems to match Bernie Sanders' demeanor so well. Like any episode of Curb, it revolves around how a simple misunderstanding can have disastrous consequences. It's not the first...

Deadpool: no rules, no consequences, lots of dick jokes Print E-mail
Saturday, 06 February 2016
The new Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Deadpool helpfully sets the bar during its opening minutes, when its wisecracking eponymous protagonist compares an unpleasant taste to two hobos fucking in a shoe full of piss. It's a clear statement of intent for anyone who missed the film's popular, profanity-packed red-band trailers: This is an R-rated superhero movie, and the filmmakers are out to earn the rating as thoroughly and colorfully as possible. In the opening firefight, Deadpool takes a bullet square in the rectum: Ugh, right up Main Street, he groans. He brands a generic mook on the forehead with a red-hot cigarette lighter, then crams it in the guy's mouth: I never say this, he chuckles, but...
