For a subtler tale of friendship on the road, let Green Book guide you to The End Of The Tour For a subtler tale of friendship on the road, let Green Book guide you to The End Of The Tour

Watch This offers movie recommendations inspired by new releases or premieres, or occasionally our own inscrutable whims. With the Academy Awards right around the corner, we’re suggesting the perfect pairings for this year’s Best Picture nominees—movies to watch with, or instead of, each of them.

The Umbrella Academy isn’t perfect, but this dance sequence is The Umbrella Academy isn’t perfect, but this dance sequence is

I’m currently four episodes into The Umbrella Academy, the new Netflix series about a fractured family of adopted kids with strange powers who were trained as masked superheroes in their youth, and now must overcome their rampant psychological issues as adults and reunite to once again save the world. It’s a good…

The morons are already out here trying to tank Captain Marvel on Rotten Tomatoes The morons are already out here trying to tank Captain Marvel on Rotten Tomatoes

Just as going for a walk in the woods on a beautiful day will inevitably lead you to pick up some burrs on your pants, so too will perusing something fun on the internet ineluctably point you to comments from the most repellant segment of the population. Call it the Yiannopoulos Effect: No matter how simple the appeal…

Great directors cause chills in the trailer for new horror anthology The Field Guide To Evil

A few years ago, a burst of new horror-anthology films flooded the market, causing a bit of burnout in fans usually eager to check out such material. But when an anthology like The Field Guide To Evil comes along, all such exhaustion disappears, simply because of the talent involved.

The Walking Dead stops in its tracks to explore the mind of a girl we just met The Walking Dead stops in its tracks to explore the mind of a girl we just met

Almost any character on a TV show contains a world of storytelling possibilities. As a means of establishing the character of Alpha, the harsh and violent new antagonist and leader of the Whisperers, “Omega” is bluntly effective. As an episode of The Walking Dead, it’s pretty thin gruel.

Damn, guess we’ll have to get a DC Universe subscription, because Doom Patrol is worth it Damn, guess we’ll have to get a DC Universe subscription, because Doom Patrol is worth it

The last thing any of us want to do is sign up for yet another in the seemingly endless proliferation of subscription streaming services. Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Shudder, Crackle, Vue, Tribeca Shortlist—the list quickly grows unwieldy, and massively expensive. Most of us stick to a few favorites, chosen mainly because…

Welcome to the weirdly unfunny world of Jordan Peele’s Weird City Welcome to the weirdly unfunny world of Jordan Peele’s Weird City

There’s a reason comedy sketches are only so many minutes long. Once you’ve explored all possible permutations of a joke’s premise, there’s no real reason left to keep dragging it out. Weird City, the new sci-fi satire anthology series from Jordan Peele and his old Key & Peele writer-producer Charlie Sanders, knows it…

Warner Bros. finally remembers it should probably make an Aquaman sequel Warner Bros. finally remembers it should probably make an Aquaman sequel

It’s been nearly two months since Aquaman sloshed its way into theaters, slapping moviegoers on the back with a hearty “My man!” and crushing a beer can on its head as it proceeded to earn more than a billion dollars worldwide. Wondering why Warner Bros. hadn’t already begun a sequel? Let’s find out.

The Yesterday trailer imagines a world where The Beatles never existed

It would be awfully difficult to dispute the claim that The Beatles are the most famous band in the history of pop music. But the entire population of the world in Yesterday, the new film from Danny Boyle, responds to the name of the group with a puzzled, “The whotles?

Weekend Box Office: The Lego Movie 2 bricks its debut Weekend Box Office: The Lego Movie 2 bricks its debut

Warner Bros.’ box office hopes for the long-awaited sequel to The Lego Movie crumbled like so many poorly assembled plastic blocks this weekend, as The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part debuted with $34.4 million—or roughly 20 million dollars below what the studio was expecting. It’s hard to Lego of expectations.

Trump announces artificial intelligence push, in bid to level up from "none" Trump announces artificial intelligence push, in bid to level up from "none"

As America once more screams itself awake this Monday morning, the terrible nightmares plaguing our troubled slumber giving way to the Sartrean existential cry of our daily reality, we’re greeted by twin visions of an apocalyptic future: Will Smith as a genie and Donald Trump wishing he were smarter. Notice a link?

The Walking Dead returns with a cool new villain—and better yet, they're actually scary The Walking Dead returns with a cool new villain—and better yet, they're actually scary

If you were wondering whether The Walking Dead may have lost its facility with a heavy-handed metaphor, don’t you worry: Three-fourths of the way through the midseason return of the horror drama, Negan pulls out a compass to guide him in the direction of...Judith Grimes, whose initials are etched into the back.

Michael B. Jordan is turning new fantasy epic Black Leopard, Red Wolf into a movie Michael B. Jordan is turning new fantasy epic Black Leopard, Red Wolf into a movie

It seems we’re not the only ones quite taken with Marlon James’ absorbing new novel Black Leopard, Red Wolf: Like many an epic tale before it, the book is being adapted into a movie. If you’ve read even the initial opening section of the story, then you already know this is going to be no small feat to pull off.

Hope you don't take John Shaft too seriously, because the new trailer for Shaft sure doesn't

There wasn’t anything funny about John Shaft—not at first, anyway. While both the original and the lukewarm 2000 remake always had an element of humor, there was no winking to the camera about this badder-than-bad avenger of the streets of Harlem. Not so with this latest entry in the Shaft cinematic universe.

You're invited to The A.V. Club's 2019 SXSW party You're invited to The A.V. Club's 2019 SXSW party

Another SXSW is approaching, which means its time for The A.V. Club to once more head down to Austin, Texas and throw a big ol’ party with some of our favorite musical artists. And as always, we’d love for you to join us! This year’s party is happening on Monday, March 11 at The Mohawk on Red River St. between 9th and…
