An outrageous absurdist animated comedy, Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg's Big Mouth is a candid insight into the joy's and horror of puberty. Unadulterated in its approach, this fantastic comedy offers as much thoughtful and sincere truths as it does dick jokes. Check out the rest of my thoughts in this review.

TV Yapp Lets Users Discuss TV Shows Without the Risk of Spoilers

TV Yapp is an app that enables consumers to chat about television shows, while eliminating the risk of having a particular episode spoiled by someone who has already watched it.

Television streaming concepts like Netflix have disrupted the way consumers engage with the technology, making it more accessible and simultaneously, harder to avoid. Because of the prevalence of binge-watching, consumers rarely watch an episode week by week, but rather, wait until the entire series is available, so it can be viewed, without having to wait between episodes.

When signing up for TV Yapp, consumers simply search a television show and select previously viewed episodes. In doing so, consumers will be matched with other individuals who have viewed the same amount of the series, encouraging conversation, while eliminating the occurrence of series spoilers.

Finery Analyzes Users' Wardrobes to Offer Up New Clothes

Streaming services like Netflix and Spotify are great at offering consumers recommendations on what they might like based on what they typically watch or listen to, and Finery is a site that aims to offer the same service in a completely different industry. The site analyzes its users' wardrobes and uses that data to recommend new clothing that they can then purchase online.

Finery analyzes users wardrobes by scanning through their online purchases. When users sign up, they enter their email addresses, and the proprietary Finery algorithm searches through their emails from the past ten years to glean what they've purchased. It then looks for patterns and offers up new clothing based on the tastes of each user. Users also have the option to link stores online catalogs to their accounts if they aren't frequent online shoppers.

Netflix adds HDR support on iOS for iPhone 8, iPhone X and 2017 iPad Pro

Netflix has updated its iOS application with HDR support for newer devices, including the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, as well as the forthcoming iPhone X. It also works on the iPad Pro 12.9 and 10.5 from 2017, if you happen to have one of those devices.
Netflix HDR streaming requires a premium subscription plan, as well as more recent hardware. Some of the newest Android phones have already offered HDR support, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and the LG G6.
There’s some debate about whether or not you’ll get “true” HDR given the brightness limitations of Apple’s LCD panels, and it’s probably more than you need on a screen that small anyway, but it’s nice to have the option if you’re a regular consumer of streaming media.

Netflix is raising prices, especially if you love 4K

This is not the first time and probably not the last time. Beloved movie and TV streaming service Netflix is raising its subscriptions prices starting this month, as Mashable first reported and TechCrunch confirmed. The most popular plan is going to be $1 more expensive. Here’s what’s going to happen.
Netflix currently has three plans. For $7.99, you can stream in small definition on one screen at a time. It can be your TV, your phone or your laptop — anything. If you pay $9.99, you can stream in high definition on two devices at once. And for $11.99, you get 4K streaming and four devices.
The cheapest plan is still going to be $7.99. This plan is not going to change and hasn’t changed since it first launched in 2010. But there’s a trick.
While most people don’t care about 4K (at least not yet), people want to be able to stream in HD. That’s why the $9.99 plan is currently the most popular plan. This one now costs $10.99.
Finally, the 4K plan is getting a lot more expensive as it now costs $13.99 — that’s a 16 percent increase. This probably doesn’t matter right now as you might not have a 4K TV or an internet connection that is fast enough for 4K. But when everybody switches to 4K, Netflix is going to make people pay more.

“From time to time, Netflix plans and pricing are adjusted as we add more exclusive TV shows and movies, introduce new product features and improve the overall Netflix experience to help members find something great to watch even faster,” Netflix told TechCrunch in a statement.
New users get those new prices starting today. Other countries, such as France, are also getting a price increase — for France, it’s the same prices with $1 = €1, which is not accurate at all.
Existing users will get notified starting on October 19th. Netflix will send you an email telling you that your subscription price will increase in 30 days depending on your billing cycle and if you don’t have the $7.99 plan.
These progressive price increases are quite a good strategy as Netflix keeps adding more and more original content. Chances are you’re now using Netflix more than before, which means you’re still getting a good deal based on the number of streamed hours (see also: Stranger Things). And the 4K subscription tier is a good bet on the future.

Released with little fanfare Season 4 of BoJack Horseman has finally arrived. Continuing to go from strength to strength, season 4 offers more profound storytelling, cynicism and creepy dentist clowns. Unfortunately much like it's self destructive protagonist, it doesn't get the love that it deserves.

What are your thoughts on BoJack? Good? Bad? Let me know!

Netflix Acquires "Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond - Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton"
The film brings viewers into the oddly unique experience and emotional journey of the making of ‘Man on the Moon’ leaving them to determine where Andy Kaufman ends and Jim Carrey begins
Los Angeles, CA (September 11, 2017) -- Netflix announced today, out of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, that it has acquired worldwide rights to director Chris Smith’s fascinating deep dive into actor Jim Carrey’s time spent portraying famed and complicated comedian Andy Kaufman. Using approximately 100 hours of footage shot on the set of Man on the Moon documenting Carrey’s transformation into Kaufman for four months. The VICE Documentary Films production premiered at the 2017 Venice Film Festival and is produced by Academy Award - winner Spike Jonze, and VICE Films’ Danny Gabai and Brendan Fitzgerald.

In 1999 Milos Forman cast Jim Carrey to play cult comedian Andy Kaufman in his biopic Man on the Moon. What followed was an intensely bizarre and emotional film production. Surrounded by Kaufman’s friends and family on set, Carrey thoroughly “became” Andy and, alternately, Tony Clifton, Kaufman’s obnoxious lounge singer alter ego. Much like Kaufman’s comedy, Carrey’s acting took on a performance art quality during the film. He never broke character on set, the cast and the crew referred to him as either ‘Andy’ or ‘Tony’ depending on who he was embodying (he had created complete and separate identities for each).

Jim Carrey earned critical acclaim and a Golden Globe for the performance, but many of the production’s most Kaufmanesque moments played out behind the scenes, thankfully captured on video by Andy’s former girlfriend, Lynne Margulies and former writing partner, Bob Zmuda. In Jim & Andy, Carrey looks back at the resulting footage 18 years later, reflecting on how he and Andy came up in oddly parallel universes, his experience channelling Andy and Tony and more broadly the spiritual journey of his career.

“For almost two decades this brilliant performance from Jim Carrey has resonated with audiences and fans of Kaufman’s, but the story behind the film - a true piece of entertainment history has remained largely unknown," said Lisa Nishimura, VP of Original Documentaries for Netflix. “Chris Smith and Spike Jonze have masterfully unearthed and explored Jim's complex and artful creative process, hurling audiences right into the mind of a genius.”

"VICE is always focused on telling stories you can't see anywhere else, and Chris' film is an incredibly humanistic deep-dive into the mind of a brilliant artist. Chris, Spike and Jim have made a film that makes us question what we really want in the world, and we couldn't be more excited that Netflix is bringing it to the world,” said Danny Gabai, Executive Creative Director, VICE.

JIM & ANDY: The Great Beyond - Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton is produced by VICE Documentary Films, the feature-length documentary division from VICE Media. The film is produced by Spike Jonze, Danny Gabai, Brendan Fitzgerald. Executive Producers are Eddy Moretti, Shane Smith, Tony Clifton, Michael Kronish, Jim Czarnecki, and Nicole Montez.
