These wonder twins sure are cranky! Some might even say Crotchety! Not really, though! They're here to first discuss the Emmy's which neither of them watched- and dive into a deep discussion as to where IS the line between being PC and comedy. Next up, something they both did see: Captain Marvel Trailer. Whew Lawd this looks good! Also was it weird for Vulture Magazine to feature a story about Soon-Yi Previn written by one of Woody Allen's friend? On to the main event- It's QUIZLETTE Time, Back 2 Skool edition. James guides Nnekay through some of the hottest topics including, Violas Davis and The Help, Bi-Pride Parade, Julie Chen...

Interview: Corey Stoll

| 0 comments

Corey Stoll is one of those actors that you’ve seen but might not recognize. He’s been in a handful of cop shows, most recently he played Detective Thomas "TJ" Jaruszalski on Law and Order: Los Angeles until that show was cancelled. He was in an episode of The Unusuals, which was a great show in my opinion, but it too was eventually pulled. Lately, he’s gained accolades for his turn as Ernest Hemingway in Woody Allen’s fantasy Midnight in Paris starring Owen Wilson. It’s a truly fantastic tale where larger-than-life characters from the Lost Generation of Paris in the 1920s (Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Picasso, Gertrude Stein) are visited by Wilson’s character who gets lost one night while walking through Paris…you guessed it, at midnight.

Chris Bowman: What were your thoughts on Ernest Hemingway as a person before playing him in the film?

Move These to the Top of Your Queue: "Bananas" and "Casino Royale"

| 1 comment

Not sure how we overlooked these earlier in the week, but there are two more comedy classics that will soon be expiring from Netflix Instant.

1. Title: Bananas (1971)

Where to find it: Netflix Instant through September 1st

If you've never seen Woody Allen's earliest (and silliest) films, you're truly missing out. In Bananas, Allen's character, Feilding Mellish, goes to a fictional Latin American country and joins its rebel movement - eventually rising to the office of President - all in order to impress his desired love object (Louise Lasser) with his "leadership qualities."



2. Title: Casino Royale (1967)

Where to find it: Netflix Instant through August 31st

A classic goofball farce, this star-studded spy spoof is the only movie that sports David Niven (and many others!) in the role of James Bond. It also features the talents of Peter Sellers, Orson Welles, Woody Allen, Deborah Kerr and William Holden. Kinda makes you look at "Austin Powers" in a whole new light, eh?



Move This to the Top of Your Queue: Five Must-See-Now Comedy Classics

| 0 comments

It's so frustrating. All week long you've been looking forward to Friday night so you could relax and watch that special comedy film that's been sitting in your queue for months - the one that your friends constantly quote and praise. But just as you settle in and bust out the popcorn, you notice that the movie has disappeared from your queue. The streaming service of your choice no longer has the rights to show it.

Okay. Now you're feeling disappointed. Somewhat like Otto (Kevin Kline) in this scene from "A Fish Called Wanda."

Thankfully, there is a solution. Multiple services have been granted access to the Netflix API and publish information from the company's database about which movies and shows will soon be added to or depart from the streaming lineup. (And they seem to be publishing this information with the company's tacit approval). So now you can discover in advance when the streaming rights to your film will expire.

But what's that you say? You don't have time to scan all of those services each week? That's why you have friends like us!

A team of intrepid MaxFunsters has joined together to sort through those listings, identify the gems that you shouldn't miss and - most importantly - tell you when you need to watch them in order to avoid DISAPPOINTMENT.

Click here to see our list of five great must-see-now comedy classics, along with clips, the reasons why they are unmissable and the date when each will disappear from your queue. Happy streaming!
