Stephen Colbert calls out Trump’s thin response to New Zealand terror attack

The world is still coming to terms with the tragedy of the Christchurch terror attack, including New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. However, The Late Show host Stephen Colbert noted that Ardern “made it clear that her country was united,” after the attack by a white supremacist on two mosques in which 50 Muslim worshippers were killed. After the attack, Ardern said she had spoken with President Trump directly, and that he had passed on his condolences to New Zealand. When asked by Trump what offer of support the U.S. could provide, the prime minister simply requested “sympathy and love for all Muslim communities.” “That’s not really Trump’s brand,” said Colbert on Monday night. “Trump has trouble showing love for …

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ demands to be watched and watched again

There's a reason this lady has an Oscar.Image: Universal When the credits rolled on Us, I realized I needed a minute. It wasn’t that I didn’t like the film – quite the opposite. It was that the film, written and directed by Jordan Peele, is so rich, so layered, so diabolically clever and emotionally astute, that it felt an enormous undertaking to process in a single sitting.  Several hours and many conversations later, I’m still convinced this film has secrets I haven’t uncovered yet, and I’m just eager for my next chance to go digging through it again.

Disney is creating robots that can do acrobatic flips in the air

You wanna put the picture right up to your nose and then slowly move it away while defocusing your eyes and winning a Pulitzer.Image: film frame/marvel/Disney The Captain Marvel marketing team is back on the nostalgia hype train with the release of five “Magic Eye” posters.  These 3D optical illusions were first made popular through the Magic Eye book series known to pretty much any ’90s kid with a library card, and now continue to haunt those of us who could never see their hidden secrets in the first place. The pictures’ colorful, abstract patterns are supposed to reveal hidden images when stared at long enough, but personally they make me feel like Star-Lord at the end of Infinity War …

‘A Star Is Korn’ is the bizarrely funny parody trailer you never knew you needed

If you liked A Star Is Born, you’ll love A Star Is Korn. Probably. The stunningly funny parody trailer is a lot like that of the hit film starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, except it focuses on the musical rise of Jonathan Davis, lead vocalist of the metal band Korn. Lmao. We can see how A Star Is Korn might not sound like a trailer everyone wants to see, but stick with it until 1:11 at least. Trust us. Comedians @badcomixbyanna and @HhiggZ — who star as Bradley Cooper and Jonathan Davis — were sadly snubbed by the Oscars on Sunday. But hey, maybe Korn will see this comedic masterpiece and show them some love. Original Article : HERE …

Stephen Colbert calls Trumps national emergency plan ‘insane’

Donald Trump is set to declare a national emergency in order to unlock $8 billion in additional funds for his border wall, on top of the lowered $1.375 billion allocated in a bipartisan budget bill the president is also expected to sign.  The Late Show host Stephen Colbert unpacked the troubling situation in his opening monologue Thursday night, casually calling Trump’s plan “insane.” “He claims he could get all the funding he wants for his wall if he just declared a national emergency. That, of course, would be insane,” Colbert said.  “It would be usurping Congress’s power, there would be immediate court challenges. Many in his own party have said it would set a terrible precedent of unconstitutional overreach by …
