    Amy Schumer’s highly anticipated stand-up special for Netflix is getting overwhelmingly negative reviews from users who are tuning in and rating it. “Amy Schumer: The Leather Special” hit Netflix last week, and as the streaming service’s subscribers are starting to watching it, less-than-stellar reviews have been pouring in. “I made it 10 minutes into this and shut it off,” one viewer review read. The user gave the special one-star out of five. Another viewer added, “SO BAD!! I did stay and watch the whole show in hopes that it would get better, and it didn’t.” Yet another one-star user review...

    "This is as funny as an autopsy. . . as graphic and as funny as I would imagine a public beheading to be." "Absolutely horrible. Amy is 1 special away from being broke and homeless." "What the eff happened, Amy? Wife and I were actually upset at over how how unfunny and actually kinda sad this was" "She pauses to accommodate for the applause after the jokes….. but there are no jokes so there is no applause. I did not watch the entire thing, I just couldn’t." "I’ve had migraines that were way funnier than this stand-up performance." "NetFlix better...

    horrible, bullying, hit piece. Megyn would have you believe she is an author, a journalist, and a victim when in reality she is a talentless shill who made it her mission to attack the 45th President of the United States. I have not watched her on FOX since she went out to end President Trumps campaign. Having failed she went Brittany. Lopped off her hair and hid in a closet for a week. She needs to go away. I included a photo of the moment she realized Trump had been elected.

Credit: Apple I’ve been using my Apple Watch Series 2 for over a week.

  • Why Are ‘Customers’ So Angry About This New Book on Marriage and Religious Freedom?

    The Daily Signal ^ | July 19, 2015 | Marguerite Bowling
    Is the debate about marriage over after the Supreme Court’s June decision to redefine marriage in all fifty states? That’s what some reviewers are insisting after a new book was released last week. The book, “Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom,” is a roadmap from Ryan Anderson, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, on how the conservative movement can move forward in promoting marriage and protecting religious freedom after the Supreme Court’s ruling. “I wrote this book for all Americans. For those who disagree with me, to at least understand the viewpoint of roughly...

    Lately I've noticed the product reviews on Amazon have become free of typos and misspellings and all errors in usage. This is absolutely weird if you think about it. For the longest time (years) these product reviews were peppered with grammatical errors, misspellings, punctuation errors and inconsistencies as one would kind of expect, coming as they did from purchasers who are not professional writers and who represent a cross section of varying educational and experience backgrounds. Now, however, the reviews from five stars on down to one star all read as though they've come straight out of Consumer Reports magazine....
  • 'The Interview': Film Review

    The Hollywood Reporter ^ | 12/12/2014 | Todd McCarthy
    Adding creative insult to corporate injury in the wake of the massive hacking of Sony's computer files, the film that may have triggered the incident, The Interview, is an intensely sophomoric and rampantly uneven comic takedown of an easy but worrisomely unpredictable target, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. In the relatively sparse annals of irreverent major studio comedies that pissed off foreign nations, for big laughs this one doesn't rate anywhere near Borat or Team America: World Police; the latter prominently included the present North Korean boss man's father, Kim Jong-il, among its many targets. Given the unique cloud under...
  • Hillary Clinton Is Getting Terrible Reviews On The Campaign Trail, (..shortened title)

    Yahoo! News ^ | 8/15/14 | Hunter Walker - Business Insider
    In recent weeks, the conventional wisdom on Hillary Clinton seems to have shifted. Her White House bid has gone from being perceived as an inevitable juggernaut to decidedly shaky ground. While this might seem surprising, a growing number of political insiders have suggested they saw this coming for a very simple reason: Clinton just isn't good at campaigning. Clinton's recent book tour was supposed to serve as a soft launch for a 2016 bid, but it quickly ran into obstacles. First, Clinton made a series of gaffes about her wealth. Then, last weekend, an interview with Clinton made headlines for...

    Not only did it not reach #1 on the Amazon Best Seller list, but Hillary Clinton's disingenuous re-invention of herself 'Hard Choices' is already headed south at #5-and-tanking on the Amazon. Small wonder some see a wider case of Hillary-fatigue setting in, just when she's trying to re-con/launch the Hillary brand for 2016. And the reviews are more than a little bit harsh... It is just as bad as we all figured it would be. So glad I didn't have to pay for it or I wouldn't have bought it.  Hillary is the consummate power hungry witch, a crooked lawyer...

    Siskel and Ebert they ain’t, but Islamic scholars, supremacists, jihadists and pressure groups have made their views known, often in quite colorful ways, about numerous motion pictures that you may want to catch. So grab some popcorn and some old tomatoes: it’s movie time down at the mosque!5. Thumbs down: Noah Russell Crowe’s lavish Biblical epic Noah is about to be released in the Middle East, and Muslim scholars are enraged. It has been banned in Qatar, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. Cairo’s Al-Azhar, which Barack Obama has praised as “a beacon of Islamic learning,” issued a statement denouncing...

  • Posting Negative Yelp Reviews Can Get You Sued

    02/05/2014 1:04:24 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 21 replies
    Last week, in a Fairfax, Virginia courtroom, a jury announced it had determined a homeowner's Yelp "review" of a local general contractor was in fact old-fashioned slander. It started in 2011, when Jane Perez posted a review that alleged contractor Dietz Development LLC had not only performed shoddy and destructive work on her home without a license, but also that a member of Christopher Dietz's crew had stolen her jewelry. So Dietz sued for defamation, to the tune of $750,000 in damages, which he may have been awarded had he not responded on the social network with what the jury...

    Aside from the gold rings and maybe the geese and French hens (great for urban farmers), the traditional 12 days of gifts just don’t cut it for the modern Christmas list. Swans bite; 12 drummers would give anybody a migraine in an enclosed space — ditto, the 11 pipers. Eight maids could at least help with the entertaining, but you get the idea: We need a better list. So here, for your “true love,” we offer the 12 Books of Christmas, a dazzling spectrum of publishing ingenuity. There are even holiday zombies, although their ideas of red and green decorations...
  • Some online reviews are too good to be true; Cornell computers spot 'opinion spam'

    Cornell Chronicle ^ | 7/25/11 | Bill Steele
    If you read online reviews before purchasing a product or service, you may not always be reading the truth. Review sites are becoming targets for "opinion spam" -- phony positive reviews created by sellers to help sell their products, or negative reviews meant to downgrade competitors. The bad news: Human beings are lousy at identifying deceptive reviews. The good news: Cornell researchers are developing computer software that's pretty good at it. In a test on 800 reviews of Chicago hotels, a computer was able to pick out deceptive reviews with almost 90 percent accuracy. In the process, the researchers discovered...

    This Friday will mark the release of the May unemployment report. A report that will reflect the last effects of the Obama trillion-dollar stimulus and of the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing (QE2). The report is likely to show that job creation is mediocre at best, with unemployment insurance claims continuing well above the 400,000 weekly level, housing in a double-dip recession and the gross domestic product contracting to a paltry 1.8 percent growth rate for the second quarter of 2011. The situation is so dire on the economic growth front that The New York Times has awoken from its slumber...
