Poor Downhill. If ever there was an example of the dangers of remaking a nearly perfect foreign-language film into English, it is the case of Downhill. Ruben Östlund’s Force Majeure is a pitch-black comedy that is almost pure drama, about a family that crumbles when faced with a staggering act of cowardice. Full Story

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is presenting at the Oscars this weekend – for this first time. Sunday night will mark her Oscars debut, as a guest or presenter. You’re surprised, right?  Sure, Julia has never been nominated, but she came pretty close during the 2013-2014 awards season with Nicole Holofcener’s Enough Said (which I loved), earning a Golden Globe nomination and Critics’ Choice honour for her buzzy, tender performance opposite the late James Gandolfini. Full Story

Will Ferrell is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend with musical guest King Princess. I can’t figure out what he’s promoting, if he’s promoting anything, or maybe he’s just cruising by for a visit for old times, to do Lorne a favour. Is it Succession? For some reason when his name comes up during the opening credits, along with Adam McKay, it always surprises me. Full Story

Apple TV+ has not yet launched, but they are the winners of a bidding war over a musical adaptation of A Christmas Carol, starring Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell. The exact number is not known, but when have we ever heard a reasonable number for a streaming deal? They probably paid nine figures for this, I'm gonna say, mess. Full Story

I first learned about Eurovision two years ago while working in England for the summer. Not many people are familiar with Eurovision on this side of the Atlantic, and so for those who don’t know, the Eurovision Song Contest is an annual, international music competition where artists from various countries in Europe (and for some reason Australia) participate to win Best Song. Full Story

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have made two funny movies together: Talladega Nights and Step Brothers. They are re-teaming for Holmes & Watson, a comedy riff on Sherlock Holmes. The first trailer is terrible. Full Story

The first time I saw Zoolander I didn’t like it, but it grew on me after multiple viewings, so after I saw Zoolander 2 and did not like it, I actually went back the next day and tried it again. Maybe it just needed to grow on me so I could properly appreciate its absurdity, but no. Zoolander 2 isn’t secretly brilliant like its predecessor, nor does it have the kind of absurd humor it takes time to unpack. Full Story
