The episode in which 100 being the ending seems more and more realistic, lots of tryhard social network lamestars got dupped by Ja Rule and his doomed Bahamian luxury music outing and the Seth Rogen/Lonely Island flick that might share a similar premise, we try to make sense of unions and the impending WGA strike, lots of Disney flicks get dates, Time Warner’s DC streaming service, and Amazon’s Echo Look. Plus, Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic World 2, Logan going black and white, Night Trap turns 25, M. Night’s Unbreakable sequel, what David Fincher, Damien Chazelle, Ang Lee, and Paul Verhoeven are working on next, Innaritu on VR, Abu Dhabi’s Warner Bros World, social network holidays, and deets on Netflix’s next Adam Sandler flick.

After the Star Wars Holiday Special, Robocop 3, Freddy Got Fingered, and Yoga Hosers, we’ve built up a good amount of reviews for bad movies. Usually its because one of us is sadistic and feels like making the other endure the pain of an awful film, but every once in a while the internet is wrong and we find a new favorite (here’s looking at you, Catwoman). Join us to find which side of the bad quality coin this falls on: guilty pleasure or guilty of viewing.
