So Last Week....
2019 Weekly Celebrity, Pop Culture and Entertainment Quiz.
This week: A villainous Muppet, a videogame blackout, a new Instagram account and celebrity insensitivity. All figure into our pop culture recap quiz for the 42nd week of 2019.
Weekend Wrap-Up
It's not that easy being green..
A pair of sequels entered theaters this weekend, though they weren't exactly the sequels anyone was asking for (are any sequels, really?), and the box office results certainly agree with that assessment.

Movie Review: Joker
Oh, what a dark, sad and depressing film this is. And yet, this is apparently what “Joker” strives to be...
Friday Box Office Analysis
Is she in a 50s movie?
October continues to be a month of disappointments, with the lone exception of Joker. That guy just keeps on laughing and laughing and laughing and laughing.
Survivor: Island of the Idols
A real one
At Lairo, the tribe asks Karishma if she understands what just happened.
Weekend Forecast
What is wrong with her face?
Who ordered the unnecessary sequels? C'mon, fess up guys, someone placed an order for two unnecessary sequels.
September Recap
Pennywise is so nice and balloony.
Speaking of pumpkin spice, September of this year fits the dull, dreary pattern of just about every September.
The #1 Movie in America:
Until last year, the highest-grossing film in the “Halloween” franchise was a detestable, gritty remake most fans have forgotten. (Or at least tried to forget.)
Movie Review: Downton Abbey
Matthew Goode is everything
“The king and queen are coming to Downton!” This glorious yet nerve-racking news sends quite the dramatic tidal wave rippling through the halls of Downton Abbey.
Weekend Wrap-Up
Nobody was really expecting any of this weekend's new releases to dethrone Joker after its opening last weekend, but nobody was really expecting this good of a hold for it, either.
Friday Box Office Analysis
Three new wide release films enter the marketplace, but the Joke's on them. Indeed, Joker will spend a second week in a row at the top of the box office charts.
Survivor: Island of the Idols
This week promises someone looking down and seeing the bone in their hand, which makes us wonder what exactly the producers think we want to watch.
