James Corden took it upon himself to give Michael Myers, the famously silent killer of the Halloween movie franchise, the true crime treatment. In a sketch on The Late Late Show, Corden donned the signature Halloween mask and sat down for interrogation with a pretty thin claim to innocence.  “I don’t know where this ‘he doesn’t talk’ thing comes from, I thought I had the right to remain silent, but whatever,” Corden says.…

How can a movie capture an experience that everyone in the world has heard about, but only an extremely privileged few will ever get to have firsthand?  Well, for starters, it’s got to have the right music. That’s the task composer Justin Hurwitz faced when he signed up for First Man, director Damien Chazelle’s telling of Neil Armstrong’s journey to the moon. But while reading Josh Singer’s script, Hurwitz was most struck by how alienating the trip must have been for Armstrong. “I really responded to this idea in the…

‘BoJack Horseman’ creator on the real-life story behind the ‘Me Too’ episode

If you thought Vance Waggoner on 'Bojack Horseman' was too real, you were right.Image: netflix BoJack Horseman is a show that’s so prescient in its satirization of our culture that it often feels like it’s predicting the future. Think back to the Oscars screw-up of 2017, which basically happened to BoJack a year before in Season 3, when Mr. Peanutbutter mistakenly awarded him Best Actor.
