NBC “Saturday Night Live” kicked off its 44th season with a cold open mocking the Brett Kavanaugh Senate Judiciary Committee hearing from earlier in the week.  It was little surprise “SNL” addressed the day-long Thursday hearing in which both Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford testified on Capitol Hill. Ford accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexually […]

The Best and Worst of Last Night’s ‘SNL’ with Sam Rockwell

People in love with movies love actor Sam Rockwell. Our personal favorite is his trippy role in Duncan Jones’ 2009 film Moon, in which Rockwell plays an astronaut doing a solitary stint on a lunar facility where his character slowly unravels. It’s a moody, quiet performance, quite unlike his boisterous appearance on last night’s SNL. […]
