What Will It Take for Democrats to Flip the Senate in 2020?

What Will It Take for Democrats to Flip the Senate in 2020?
Mark Kelly, the fighter pilot-turned-astronaut and husband of retired congresswoman Gabby Giffords, announced in February that he is running to unseat Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) in 2020. His campaign has been doing quite well. In July, it announced that Kelly had raised $4.2 million in the second quarter, more than all but six presidential candidates. Kelly’s campaign manager called the haul a “sonic boom.” Get it?

On Tuesday, an Arizona poll showed Kelly leading McSally — who lost her 2018 race against Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) but was appointed by the state’s

With Hickenlooper Out, Who’s the Next 2020 Democrat to Go?
Former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper is ending his Presidential bid on Thursday, fueling speculation he might dive into another crowded primary field and join the 13 Democrats already vying for a chance to challenge Cory Gardner, the Republican Senator from Colorado, in 2020.

This morning, I’m announcing that I’m no longer running for President. While this campaign didn’t have the outcome we were hoping for, every moment has been worthwhile & I’m thankful to everyone who supported this campaign and our entire team.https://t.co/1ijSjkbzzd

Best of Frightfest: ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ Dir. Guillermo del Toro

Best of Frightfest: As the twentieth anniversary of Arrow Video Frightfest approaches, we at team Thn take a look back at some of the best and brightest films that have screened over the last two decades. Today we venture into Pan’s Labyrinth.

While The Shape of Water may have nabbed him both the best director and best picture Oscar, it would be hard to argue the fact that the film Guillermo del Toro will be most remembered for is 2006’s Pan’s Labyrinth. There is something about it that, like all great fairy tales, has proven to be timeless, and that comes down to the del Toro’s imagination that is onscreen in all its beauty and all its horror.

It tells a story of high fantasy set against the backdrop of the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War. The year is 1944. We follow Ophelia, a spirited young girl

Listen: ‘Drunk History’ Host Derek Waters on Why There Should Be a Law Banning TV Reboots
Derek Waters loves TV history — so much so that he even keeps a collection of old TV Guide magazines at home. As the co-creator and host of Comedy Central’s Emmy-nominated “Drunk History,” it’s perhaps no surprise that Waters reveres classic TV — particularly from his childhood era of the 1980s.

But here’s where he draws the line at nostalgia: Reboots and remakes.

“I hope some day, I’m alive to see some sort of law passed where something, be it ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ once a show or movie [has been given] some sort of accolade, it can be shut,” Waters told Variety‘s “My Favorite Episode” podcast. “You’re not allowed to touch this. Leave it alone.”

Waters’ suggestion: Just re-release a DVD of the original instead. “Don’t change it,” he added. “I’m trying to think of one thing where I’m so glad they rebooted that, and

‘Terror of Hallow’s Eve’ VOD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Caleb Thomas, Jt Neal, Annie Read, Juliet Landau, Eric Roberts, Doug Jones, Sarah Lancaster, Christian Kane | Written by Ronald L. Halvas, Todd Tucker, Zack Ward | Directed by Todd Tucker

Growing up is hard and for fifteen-year-old Timmy Stevens it’s no exception. Scrawny and nerdy, he’s relentlessly tormented by the town bullies. His only escape is his love of horror and the creatures he creates. A chance run-in with his tormentors in a convenience store parking lot on Halloween leaves Timmy brutally beaten. Walking home he stumbles upon a mysterious pumpkin. Despondent from the vicious attack he escapes to his private world and begins carving the pumpkin, wishing for revenge. Unknowingly, Timmy summons the Trickster, an ancient evil, who offers to grant his wish: scare the bullies to death.

I’ll be honest, out of all the films screened at Frightfest over the years there are still some

FrightFest Presents Review – Terror of Hallow’s Eve (2017)

Terror of Hallow’s Eve, 2017.

Directed by Todd Tucker.

Starring Caleb Thomas, Sarah Lancaster, Annie Read, Mcabe Gregg, Doug Jones, and Eric Roberts.

Synopsis:

A bullied teenager summons the Trickster and wishes revenge on his tormentors.

If the John Carpenter-esque font of the title cards and the opening shot of three teenage girls walking down the street on their way home from school doesn’t clue you in as to where director/co-writer Todd Tucker is coming from then the neon lighting, fantastical practical effects and ominous epilogue set in a hospital rams it home, as Terror of Hallow’s Eve positively basks in every 1980s horror movie trope you can think of.

At the centre of the movie is that age-old nugget about being careful what you wish for as troubled teenager Tim (Caleb Thomas – Chase Champion) makes a wish on a pumpkin that he finds growing down

Taika Waititi Talks ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ and the Wait for the ‘Werewolves’ Movie

Taika Waititi Talks ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ and the Wait for the ‘Werewolves’ Movie
“What We Do in the Shadows,” the spinoff series based on the 2014 vampire comedy film of the same name by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, wraps up its first season this month. In celebration of that and the show’s Season 2 renewal, FX held an Emmys Fyc event Wednesday and screened the cameo-laden episode “The Trial,” along with the finale.

Afterward, comedian and guest star Kristen Schaal moderated a panel that included Waititi, co-executive producers and writers Paul Simms and Stefani Robinson, and cast members Matt Berry, Harvey Guillén, Mark Proksch, and guest star Doug Jones.

In the series, three vampires — Nadja (Natasia Demetrio), Laszlo (Berry), Nandor (Kayvan Novak) — the familiar Guillermo (Guillén), and energy vampire Colin Robinson (Proksch) live in a house in Staten Island. Waititi, as series co-creator and director, hadn’t planned on appearing on the show, but he, Clement, and a slew of guest stars who’ve played vampires elsewhere,

What We Do in the Shadows Episode 9 Review: The Orgy

The vampires of What We Do in the Shadows' experience habeas corpus interruptus in episode 9, "The Orgy."

This What We Do in the Shadows review contains spoilers.

What We Do in the Shadows Episode 9

What We Do in the Shadows, season 1, episode 9, "The Orgy," sullies the Staten Island contingent's bad name among vampires, but reinforces it for the audience. Nandor (Kayvan Novak), Laszlo (Matt Berry) and Nadja’s (Natasia Demetriou) house has been selected for the Biannual Vampire Orgy and it turns out to be a double-edged sword, which could be an erotic accoutrement at such a gathering. If the orgy is a success, the hosts are celebrated and treated with high esteem. If it fails, the embarrassment is enough to make a vampire go to ground. There is a stigma in throwing a bad orgy. There is no recovery. Vampires are still deriding the orgy of 1937, thrown by fucking Mike.

We’ve Hit a New Low in Campaign Hit Pieces

Last week, the Daily Beast ran this headline: “Tulsi Gabbard’s Campaign Is Being Boosted by Putin Apologists”

That was followed by the sub headline: “The Hawaii congresswoman is quickly becoming the top candidate for Democrats who think the Russian leader is misunderstood.”

The Gabbard campaign has received 75,000 individual donations. This crazy Beast article is based on (maybe) three of them.

The three names are professor Stephen Cohen, activist Sharon Tennison and someone using the name “Goofy Grapes,” who may or may not have once worked for comedian Lee Camp,

What We Do in the Shadows Episode 8

What We Do in the Shadows, episode 8, "Citizenship," continues to expose vampire myths to the sunlight of mocking documentation. Although, tonight they only do this in short bursts, not the fully lethal way the series dispensed with Baron Afanas (Doug Jones) after his night on the town.

"Citizenship" opens with Jenna, played by Beanie Feldstein who costars in Olivia Wilde's directorial debut Booksmart, moving between worlds. The young Staten Island community college student is becoming untethered from her human limitations only to get stuck in vampiric ones. Feldstein looks like she's having a ball as she undergoes the indignities of this dual citizenship.

Star Trek: Discovery Was The Most Popular Streaming Show In April

While the past few years have been rather rough for Star Trek fans, things are on the up and up for Gene Roddenberry’s visionary franchise. After the fourth film was unceremoniously canceled – due to Beyond‘s poor box office performance – attention slowly shifted to the series’ future on the small screen. Earlier this year, rumors began circulating that Michelle Yeoh might be getting her own spinoff – where she would reprise her roles as Captain Georgiou – and just last week, production officially began on a Picard series, led by legendary actor Patrick Stewart.

And then of course, there’s Star Trek: Discovery, which just wrapped up its second season. This digital-only show is available for streaming on CBS All Access, and stars Sonequa Martin-Green as Michael Burnham, a science specialist aboard the USS Discovery. Doug Jones, Shazad Latif, Anthony Rapp and Mary Wiseman round out of the ship’s crew.

What We Do in the Shadows Episode 7 Review: The Trial

Staten Island vampires face the music and off-tempo dancing as What We Do in the Shadows presents "The Trial."

This What We Do in the Shadows review contains spoilers.

What We Do in the Shadows Episode 7

What We Do in the Shadows, episode 7, "The Trial," finds the Staten Island trio judged by a tribunal the transgression of dispensing with vampire royalty. The episode is yet another high point in a series which seems to pick up speed with every installment. The proceedings themselves are quite perilous, and the charges rather dire, but the implied menace works well for the humor, disarming the sentencing to a toothless threat. Now that Baron Afanas (Doug Jones) has met his second, final, death, someone has to pay.

Also adding to the suspense is that the accused vampires at the center of the suspected vampicide have no recollection of the murder itself, which is how the episode opens.

FX Renews What We Do In The Shadows for Season 2

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been enjoying the vampire mockumentary series What We Do in the Shadows. I think it’s hilarious, and I’m happy to tell you that FX has renewed it for a second season!

The show is based on Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s incredibly funny 2014 film of the same name, but the series is set in Staten Island instead of Wellington. It also follows a different group of vampires living together.

Here’s a synopsis that was released for Season 1:

“Much like the movie, the series follows three vampires who live together: Laszlo (Matt Berry), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), and Nandor (Kayvan Novak) — the former two are husband and wife. Also living with them is a fourth vampire named Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch), who’s an “energy vampire.” Instead of blood, he sucks the energy out of his victims by

The streamer and CBS Television Studios have launched a new “For Your Consideration” exhibit at the Paley Center for “Star Trek: Discovery,” with a specific focus on below-the-line crafts categories.
