The 14 Best Sketches (So Far) From ‘SNL’ Season 40

2 Jan

640_Sump-N-Claus

Let’s just get this out of the way right off the bat: SNL’s 40th season started off a little shaky – despite an admirable hosting job by the endlessly entertaining Chris Pratt – and it seemed that the cast, as it stood, was going to take some time to gel. As it turned out, they gelled much faster than anyone anticipated and as the show reached its final episode of 2014 it found its stride in a way that had been missing for quite a few seasons.

SNL’s 40th season, hiccups aside, has had some truly brilliant, fascinating, and insanely funny moments, and I’ve decided to cherry pick my very favorite 14 (in honor of 2014, get it? It’s not arbitrary… I promise) sketches of the season (so far).

 With the live, musical stage production of Peter Pan airing on NBC on Thursday, and the recent release of the trailer for the upcoming adventure drama Pan – a re-imagined live-action version of J.M. Barrie’s classic tale – it seems that America is once again experiencing full-blown Peter Pandemonium.

And why not? It’s fun for the whole family, right? On the surface, Peter Pan is about a young boy leading his friends on the adventure of a lifetime. Like most children’s stories, it’s a cherished morality tale that teaches kids a lesson while keeping them entertained.

And, like most beloved children’s stories, the familiar tale of Peter Pan is based on a book full of horrible murder and deeply traumatizing acts of depravity. Seriously, children’s stories are messed up. To show you what we mean, here are seven beloved (Disney-adapted) tales of fun and adventure that are based on some of the most shocking, horrifying stories imaginable…

Halloween is arguably the greatest of all holidays. First off, as an adult, Halloween is the perfect excuse to marathon-watch the scariest, goriest, most pants-soiling horror movies available. Secondly, adults can buy their own candy, and none of it will be an eraser, gum or three dirty pennies.

But what if you don’t like being scared, and would rather watch a violent, gory scream-fest that makes you laugh? Well, you might be a crazy serial killer, in which case, we can’t help you. But if that’s not the case, check out our list of 13 awful horror movies that are so wonderfully terrible you can’t help but love them.

On August 27, the Disney classic Mary Poppins turns 50! It’s the story of a magical nanny, two precocious children, a stern father with the capacity for love just beneath the surface, a socially progressive mother, and the most charming chimney sweep/kite salesman/one-man-band in history.

You know you love him.

You know you love him.

The film won 5 Oscars out of an astounding 13 nominations, and was the only Best Picture nomination Walt Disney ever received. Mary Poppins is also one of the rare films to have a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Unlike these movies, which all have less than 100%

Unlike these movies, which all have less than 100%

Basically, it’s a great film and everyone loves it. However, despite all the times you’ve likely watched it, I have a theory that there were a number of hidden connections that you probably didn’t even realize!

Connections like:

1. Mary Poppins was Bert’s nanny!

2. Mr. Dawes Sr. – the Bank Owner – is Bert’s father

3. Uncle Albert is Bert’s Uncle

[Editor’s Note: This story was originally written for and appeared on ETonline]

This weekend, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes managed to take control of the weekend box office, raking in $73 million dollars. The film follows a group of super-intelligent apes who take over the world, and a rogue group of surviving humans who are fighting to stay alive.

While people seem to be loving this particular entry into the ‘animals destroy humanity’ genre, most movies that show the rise of a deadly species are super-campy creature features that are good only because of how wonderfully bad they are.

To get a feel for how well-done DotPotA really is check out these 11 So-Bad-They’re-Great Creature Features.
