Lin-Manuel Miranda Narrates ‘Drunk History’ Hamilton Episode (Clip)

Drunk History Narrator Lin-Manuel Miranda

The Tony-winning Broadway musical Hamilton is a smash hit that recently set the record for most money grossed in a week on Broadway ($3.3 million for 8 performances in one week). The show’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has become synonymous with Alexander Hamilton since singlehandedly bringing the American political figure to the forefront of pop culture. So, you can imagine that having Miranda narrate an Alexander Hamilton-themed episode of Drunk History is a pretty big deal.

Hosted by Derek Waters, Episode 4.10 “Hamilton” of the Comedy Central show airs today, November 29 at 10:30/9:30c, and sees Miranda quite drunkenly and humorously providing a brief history of the Founding Father’s personal and political life, and his first and last meetings with Aaron Burr.

Check out a clip from the episode here below.

Movie Review: Green Room

Green Room
Director: Jeremy Saulnier
Screenwriter: Jeremy Saulnier
Cast: Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, Callum Turner, Patrick Stewart
Distributor: A24 Films
Rated R | 95 Minutes
Release Date: April 29, 2016

“Now, whatever you saw or did. Is no longer my concern. But let’s be clear. It won’t end well.”

Assault on Precinct 13 meets American History X in Green Room, the latest nerve-shattering cinematic experience from writer-director Jeremy Saulnier (Blue Ruin). This brilliantly crafted bloodbath is the very definition of “splatterpunk.”

The Ain’t Rights, a hardcore punk band comprised of singer Tiger (Callum Turner), guitarist Sam (Alia Shawkat), bassist Pat (Anton Yelchin), and drummer Reece (Joe Cole), are touring the Pacific Northwest, siphoning gas to make it from one shitty gig to another.

Pee-wee's Big Holiday Netflix

Netflix has released a trailer for Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, the upcoming Pee-wee Herman special featuring the seemingly ageless Paul Reubens once again donning the short-legged grey suit and red bowtie.

The trailer is brief but fun, including some of Pee-wee’s wacky contraptions. It also reveals the release date for the special, so fans can get it marked off on their calendar. Hint: it will be arriving on the same day as Daredevil season two, so it should be a great geeky binge day for some with two drastically different things to watch.

SXSW Movie Review The Final Girls

The Final Girls
Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson
Written by M.A. Fortin & Joshua John Miller
Starring Malin Akerman, Taissa Farmiga, Alexander Ludwig, Nina Dobrev, Thomas Middleditch, Angela Trimbur, Chloe Bridges, Adam Devine
Vertical Entertainment
Release Date: October 9th, 2015

A friend of mine sent me the trailer to The Final Girls on Facebook with the message, “It’s like Last Action Hero as a horror movie!” So obviously I was intrigued immediately. I was excited when I went to NYCC and sat in the panel for this film, with director Todd Strauss-Schulson (Harold & Kumar 3), and star Malin Akerman (Watchmen, The Heartbreak Kid, etc.) They discussed how this isn’t a traditional horror movie, but rather a movie about coping with the loss of a parent, and how you’d react if you had one more chance to be with them… that, inside an 80s slasher setting with a Jason Voorhees style killer chasing them. What we end up with, is a movie that at times was as goofball funny as Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, while managing to evoke real heartfelt emotion. It makes The Final Girls a truly unique film.

SXSW Movie Review The Final Girls

The Final Girls
Director: Todd Strauss-Schulson
Screenwriters: M. A. Fortin, Joshua John Miller
Cast: Taissa Farmiga, Malin Akerman, Adam DeVine, Thomas Middleditch, Alia Shawkat, Alexander Ludwig, Nina Dobrev
Release Date: March 13, 2014

Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson (A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas) The Final Girls is the latest in a growing cannon of meta-horror films. Part horror, part comedy, and all meta, The Final Girls satirizes 70’s and 80’s summer camp slasher films. The story follows Max (Taissa Farmiga, American Horror Story), a young virgin who (through mysterious circumstances which shall not be spoiled here) lands inside the very film that defined her mother’s scream queen career. Once inside, Max and her reluctant friends must survive horny camp counselors, trippy flashbacks, sing-alongs, and the deranged psycho-killer Billy (a stoic, slow-walking homage to Jason Voorhees of Friday the 13th).

Movie Review: The To-Do List

The To-Do List PosterThe To-Do List
Director: Maggie Carey
Screenwriter: Maggie Carey
Cast: Aubrey Plaza, Johnny Simmons, Bill Hader, Alia Shawkat, Rachel Bilson, Connie Britton, Clark Gregg
CBS Films | 3 Arts Entertainment
Rated R | 104 Minutes
Release Date: July 26, 2013

Set in the summer of 1993, Maggie Carey‘s The To-Do List stars Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation, Safety Not Guaranteed) as an awkward, overachieving high school senior who attempts to lose her virginity before going away to college.

The To-Do List is a raunchy high school sex comedy in the “Let’s Get Laid!” tradition of films like 1982’s Goin’ All The Way, The Last American Virgin, and Porky’s. What’s refreshing about this slice of ’90s nostalgia is how it approaches the coming-of-age / end-of-innocence story from the female perspective.

Plaza plays Brandy Clark, a bookish valedictorian who can’t escape the ridicule of her too-cool classmates for being a goody-good. She decides to create a to-do list (in her Trapper Keeper!) of sexual experiences to get her up to speed before fall semester starts. Brandy enlists the help of best friends Wendy (Sarah Steele) and Fiona (Alia Shawkat), and the guidance of her skanky sister Amber (Rachel Bilson), to come up with a checklist of activities including French kissing, hickies, motor-boating, and all sorts of odd jobs.
