I’m not sure what to make of this first look at Preacher that you can find after the cut. But it’s hard to tell anything from just over a minute of footage.  And if you know nothing about Preacher…this trailer really won’t tell you much besides the fact that a man of the cloth isn’t afraid to kick a whole lot of ass.

Podcast Reaction: Wait, More Villains?! Edition

"I'm going to go menace a St. Bernard, Scully."
“I’m going to go menace a St. Bernard, Scully.”

This week on the podcast, there was no Jenny.  That means a lot of boring stuff about box office numbers that haven’t happened yet.

I mean, yeah, there was some Mars talk that proves Watson is as bad at counting as Jenny, but at least they didn’t get into some really complicated numbers over how many rocks from the Sun Mars happens to be when Mars has two moons of its own to screw with his totals even more.

Then there was a List O’Truth for movie bad guys…

Punching Up Instead Of Down: The Art Of Finding The Proper Victim In Comedy

At some point in this movie, Seth Rogen maybe wishes he didn't anger the American Sniper crowd.

My wife and I watched The Interview off Netflix recently.  It was funny in some places, not so much in others, but it got me to thinking about why it is considered acceptable to mock some figures in comedy and not others.  The basic idea is, it is OK to “punch up” and not to “punch down”.
