Stuff We Like and Stuff We Don’t Like

Stuff We Like — The Night Manager By Tessa Perkins Good looking people, even better looking locations, and chilling suspense make The Night Manager an incredible miniseries.

2016’s best comedy specials

Let’s be honest, 2016 was anything but funny. The world is a giant mess and it’s not magically going to get better in the New Year. So let’s look back on when comedians tried to make the best of a really bad situation because maybe that’ll make us all feel better for, like, a millisecond. […]

The best video games of 2016

By all measures, 2016 was a good year for gamers. Much as I would’ve liked to try them all, I didn’t get around to some of my most anticipated games — still, I was able to try out some of the year’s best and brightest, all of which stick out in my memory for one […]

But if these films are of any value, it’s because they’re more about feelings than answers, less […]

2016 was a big year for the girls of Fifth Harmony, not only did Camila Cabello leave the group, it also made it on to our list of worst songs with "Work from Home."

The worst songs of 2016

“Me Too” – Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor’s “Me Too” is the most painful thing I heard in 2016 — and that’s being nice. The chorus is just “If I was you, I’d wanna be me too” repeated multiple times. Did Trainor sit down with her producers and think, “You know what would be a great […]
