Best and Worst Horror Scene of the Year (Same Scene)

I was lucky enough to see the new A24 horror movie body body body twice with noisy crowds whose reactions to the film blew the roof off the building. Well, the second time was in August at a park in Brooklyn, so it blew people’s stinky sweats away. Or at least tried. (My sweat stopped.)

It’s a wild movie. During a hurricane, a bunch of wealthy Gen Z elders (if I have to live with the utter hate speech of the “geriatric millennial,” today’s 23-year-olds have to live with it) gather with their friends to get high. You’re playing one of those who’s the killer games that were in a recent movie Only murders in the building– unless they keep discovering that it is humans actually Die. It’s also very funny.

There is a scene that played out like Gangbuster at both screenings I attended and both times it made me laugh, twitch, moan and then giggle again. It’s the best and worst scene in the movie. It’s at the heart of what the film does so well and why it deserves so many awards, and that’s why others write it off as pandering trash. It’s satire, but it’s acted out directly – because the conversation is both an outlandish parody and a complete transcript.

With people literally dying and blood everywhere and the risk of being killed next being waved in the face with a gun, the group of friends debate the language of the abductees and who is the most privileged, then correct each other in terms of anti- aroused threats and waged a war over who is the biggest victim. Tucker Carlson just had a back spasm.

It plays hopscotch between absolute brilliance and laziness Saturday night live sketch so nimbly that in the end it may be the scene that makes the film work.

At the Brooklyn screening, star Rachel Sennott yelled in an introduction that the film is not only scary but awesome – a sentiment we support. That’s what Lee Pace is there for, and he’s very tall and very handsome. Possibly the tallest and most beautiful ever to be a celebrity. This is also the first time, I hate to say that I understand the whole Pete Davidson thing. But the horniness lies in the tangled web of hookups between the girlfriends, and it’s captivating. It’s spectacular that a horror film can be so fun and so unabashed and immersive.

And if you don’t read the title of this movie in the style of Megan Thee Stallion rapping “body-ody-ody…” you’re not doing it right.

The reason I haven’t slept since the ’90s

There’s big news this week that will affect your streaming services and what you can – and more importantly, not – watch. It mostly has to do with the Warner Bros./Discovery merger impacting HBO Max and Discovery+. It’s also why, if you’re so unhappy to be on Twitter, you’ve seen people tweet things like, “If you cancel _____, you’re dead to me.”

As far as HBO Max’s new shows go, they haven’t canceled much. That being said, if you follow someone on Twitter who posted: “If he cancels The other two…then marry her. You have great taste.

You can read all of this in my colleague Allegra Frank’s fantastic column. But I want to draw attention to a graphic posted during this shaky Warner Bros. Discovery earnings call that should explain the difference between HBO Max and Discovery+, two streaming services on the verge of merging.

What the hell is that? The Two Genders: HBO and Discovery? Why is Hacks, the flight attendant, the other two, or And just like that… that screams “male skew”? Did you mean “gay male skew”? Segregating TV content by gender is the most regressive strategy I can think of, to the point where I almost wish this company ill. Men are from Mars and women are from Venus and would never subscribe to HBO Max unless Joanna Gaines is there. (She is now!)

This slide sums up to me how utterly stupid the boardrooms are when it comes to this nonsense. What’s your favorite “genredom,” readers? I know exactly what the hell that word means and I have my own choice, but you go first.

There are too many shows!

With shows being canceled left and right this week — and more shows seemed on the verge of extinction — I thought about it Little information that slipped under the radar.

I often cite the well-worn statistic of more than 500 scripted shows premiering each year (meaning there are far more when you factor in reality TV, documentaries, and esports). If this number was already confusing and exhausting, this new one is a confirmation for me; Now I can give my therapist an actual reason I’m not sleeping.

These things aren’t exactly related – there are emotions involved – and yet they are. It’s funny to see everyone in hysterics because TV shows might end when they’re the same people complaining that there are too many shows in the first place. (Those people are me.)

roar, right?

If you watched The bear, you will know why this photo shoot forced me to stop work in the middle of the day and take a cold shower. If you weren’t watching The bear, shame on you – and maybe these photos will convince you. Thank you chef Cook, Thanks.
