  • The Comedy Legends of Would I Lie to You?

    Have you ever told a truth that was mistreated as a fib? Or spawned a lie that was eaten up like a truth? Or attempted to do both, but failed miserably?

  • Live from New York, It’s… Best of SNL

    Among all the time-devouring black holes the internet has to offer, Saturday Night Live is unquestionably one of the worst, and by that we mean the best. Got bills to pay? A social gathering you’d rather not make it to? Strap in, because your usual excuse of having “that thing, what thing?, that thing thing, gotta run byeee” just took on a whole new meaning. SNL: having procrastinators’ backs since 1975. And given that Movie Fridays strives to fulfill the same noble purpose, here are some of our most favorite (among the more recent) SNL skits. More recent, because there’s no way you can play favorites when talking about the Kristen Wiig (and Bill Hader, and Andy Samberg) era, although the current cast also is the bee’s knees. 


  • Movie Chitter-Chatter: The Last Jedi

    May the Fourth be with you! As we gear up to see the final installment of the Skywalker saga (who else’s dead inside thinking about it?) in cinemas this December, some choose to rewatch all of its eight predecessors to tie them over. And what this means is yet again falling in love with the timeless magic of The Empire Strikes Back, cringing over Attack of the Clones, and facing the mind-boggling conundrum that is The Last Jedi. Tell you what, let’s do the latter thing together, in a new chapter of our The Guardian’s pass notes wannabe series Movie Chitter-Chatter. Warning: minor spoilers, but trust us when we say that it’s better to come to TLJ knowing full well what you’re in for. And now, let’s proceed with our cinematic therapy session.

  • Movie Fridays: Irish Cinema

    In honor and spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, which falls on this Sunday, March 17 (Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhaoibh, y’all), we present to you a very green and shamrocked Movie Fridays with some of the best cinema hailing from the fair Hibernia. That way, the morning after you crash home from a pub, you’ll have something to nurse your hangover with. You’re welcome.


  • Movie Fridays: Fine Tuning

    We bet you were expecting us to cover the 2019 Oscars, werent’cha? Well our hurt is still as raw as are the emotions in that Saucy, oh sorry, Shallow duet, so we’ll save our breath for later. (Green of all things Book winning best picture? Rami Malek is best actor? Did the world end and we all ended up in hell and I knew nothing about it?) Instead, today’s Movie Fridays tackles something that, unlike a good half of the 2019 Academy awardees, we all love: music in movies. Or, to get a tad more technical, diegetic music in movies, the one that is part and parcel of their internal narrative, interacting with the characters and their surroundings. Drumroll and... please meet, some of cinema’s best musical moments, part one (of eternity)!
