Red Dwarf is hands down my all-time favorite TV show in the history of forever. Nothing even comes close. Multiple times in my life I’ve spent 24 hours or more doing nothing but sitting on a couch watching endless episodes of Red Dwarf. A British sci-fi sitcom, what’s not to love? From this is may be rather obvious that the prospect of a new series excites the living hell out of me. A trailer for Red Dwarf XI just blasted into the stratosphere, and I couldn’t be giddier.

I’ve been waiting for Don’t Breathe for what feels like forever at this point, and Fede Alvarez’ (Evil Dead) nasty, vicious horror joint doesn’t disappoint (check out my review HERE). Steeped in brutality and tension, it’s a catalog of nods and influences—there must be millions of “heist gone wrong” movies—and here are a handful the movie references, or that occurred to me while I watched.

The less known about Don’t Breathe going in, the better. The latest from director Fede Alvarez (the Evil Dead remake) is a nasty, vicious spin on the home invasion narrative. It’s also among the best horror movies of the year and easily a high point in what has been a lackluster summer season. Compact, efficient, and uncompromising, Don’t Breathe is one to absolutely sprint to the theater to see, presuming there’s an elevated tolerance for brutality and skin-peeling tension in play.

Idris Elba is a total badass. For all the talk, I hope he doesn’t become the next James Bond, not because I give two shits what color a fictional spy’s skin is, but because I want him to keep doing other awesome stuff and not be tied to one character for years at a time (he’s already on the Dark Tower chain). Awesome stuff like a new documentary series where he’s going to train to be a professional fighter and actually climb in the ring.
I’m a sucker for musicals, and I love, love, love the fact that, after the massive critical success of Whiplash, when he could have done damn near anything he wanted, Damien Chazelle made a goddamn musical. And a musical starring the tag team of charm Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling to boot. La La Land hits theaters in December, and though it’s a few months off in the distance, it just delivered a dreamy new trailer.

As you can probably tell, I’m quite pumped for Jean-Claude Van Johnson, the Jean-Claude Van Damme-starring pilot on Amazon where the Muscles from Brussels plays a version of himself who also happens to moonlight as an international assassin. I haven’t had the chance to watch the show yet—that’s a treat for later today—but this trailer is damn near perfect. Hopefully it will tide you over until you can check it out for yourself.

Jean-Claude Van Damme's Amazon Series 'Jean-Claude Van Johnson' Is Going To Be The Greatest Show Ever
This week, Jean-Claude Van Damme teams up with Amazon do deliver what is sure to be your favorite new show, Jean-Claude Van Johnson. Starring JCVD poking fun at himself, produced by Ridley Scott, and with a delightfully ridiculous premise, I’m 100% game, and taking a look at a new collection of photos ups my excitement level even more.
