New Dark Knight Trailer, the Return of Daria and Another New Trailer That Might Interest You

Felt like posting a lot of video today, enjoy. Sorry if it takes a while to load on your phone. Dammit, MTV! That’s dirty pool! After bringing back new episodes of Beavis and Butthead last year, you shouldn’t put out press releases saying how you’re bringing back Daria. People immediately assume you’re making new episodes [...]

Counting Down to Breaking Bad, Wilfred and the End of Adam Sandler’s Career

Let’s see if we can keep this a little shorter than usual, I’m kinda pressed for time: Not gonna lie — I smiled when That’s My Boy tanked. Adam Sandler seems like a nice enough guy, and I shouldn’t want him to fail … yet I do. His movies are crap, and it’s a slap in the [...]

Someone Needs to Let Me Pick an 80s Movie Soundtrack

Links for a beauteous Wednesday: RIP, Tie-Dye Dave. That just sucks. In the 90s, and early 2000s, I thought it was going to be soooo supercoolawesome when people finally started making 80s nostalgia pieces. I was getting quite sick of the 60s and 70s nostalgia/homage movies, and knew it was only a matter of time before [...]

Your Pocono (400) Weekend Fun Guide

On my early morning way into work yesterday, in the haze of said early morning, I almost got run off the road by two different RVs and clipped by another camper on 380. “What the frigg???” I kept muttering to myself, as yet another behemoth raced by me, burning gas like they could find it on the side [...]

Adam Sandler Movies = Unfunny

(This is a preview of the PopRox column that appears in Sunday’s Pocono Record.) There is a Saturday Night Live alum whose movies have made the fourth-most money at the box office of any of his other former Saturday Night Live cast members.
