dream vs. redeem

Quick diversion into the world of sports this morning . . . I didn’t stay up to watch the gold medal basketball game Sunday, but taped it and watched it first thing when I woke up Sunday. Yup, almost cried. It’s weird to some people how much I care about USA Basketball, I just do. But [...]

quick, we got a basketball game to watch

USA! USA! USA! The tour to what should be considered USA’s first legitimate basketball gold medal since the 1968 Mexico City games is on track right now against Argentina. Let’s make this quick so I can finish watching . . . Why isn’t this getting as much press as the writers strike? Why does no [...]

but do they have a future?

When these Jonas Brothers jokers showed up in the Hannah Montana movie this year, it was obvious the wheels were in motion. Then it was announced they would be getting their own High School Musical-type TV movie. Then we saw their tour schedule for the summer that included every east coast market and every local [...]

oh britney, not again

I’m more disappointed in Britney Spears than ever. After being used like a $2 hooker by MTV for last year’s VMAs, Britney, the head of America’s fave White Trash Household, is now doing promo work for the Sept. 7 with the no-name Russell Brand, MTV’s uber-reach attempt to seem hip. Just to clear something up [...]

ready for the weekend

Thoughts while trying to stomach USA losing to Cuba this morning thanks to these new crazy rules . . . Did Tom Cruise just get a new publicist this week or something? I count four major stories about the Scientology posterboy this week. Most important is his new movie Valkyrie has been moved up to a [...]

olympic viewing guide

Remember in Dodgeball, when Peter asks where Gordon heard about the big dodgeball tournament? The answer: Obscure Sports Quarterly. Well, OSC is having a field day right now and apparently everyone on the planet subscribes to it. It’s the one time every four years where people care about synchronized diving, where they can explain to [...]

call it the superbad express

Pineapple Express is off to a good start at the box office. With Wednesday take of $12 million, that puts it on track for about a $35 million opening weekend (Wed-Sun) and it looks like it will be the first movie to knock Dark Knight from the #1 spot since its July 18 opening weekend. [...]

vh1 doesn’t really love the 80s

When you’re constructing something as sacred as an 80s box set of DVDs, and you’re including 40 movies, you better make sure you get them right. So when my wife saw a commercial for VH1′s new I Love the 80s DVD movie pack and immediately said, “I know what you’re getting for Christmas,” I needed [...]

making a porno, too much dark knight and more

Some weekend catch-up: This is the best advice I’ve seen on the Justice League movie — let it die. You won’t get a decent story, you won’t get the stars, and even if you do, how happy would anyone be watching Christian Bale play second fiddle to Brandon Routh? I’m as big a Kevin Smith [...]
