No Loss of Power Here

Links that have nothing to do with power outages. OK, that will be the last “Super Bowl power outage” joke. I think. I’ll let the pros handle that. Marvel might be the smartest movie makers of my lifetime. How did they screw up their comic book movies for so long, but then turn into brilliant […]

Random Reviews, aka, What I Do at Night

I’ve been on my annual January movie kick, trying to watch as many as I can over the next couple weeks to do a competent top 20 list before the Oscars. And there have been some high-profile TV premieres. And I haven’t done any straight reviews in a while. And … that’s all I got. […]

Alternate Title: The Last Movie

If you’re interested in a half-assed review of Friday’s Fringe finale, head to the bottom. If not, enjoy some links: You can’t convince me any right-thinking studio person had any kind of expectations about the Schwarzenegger movie The Last Stand.

Your Poconos Weekend Fun Guide

You know the drill: Normally when I write this every week, I feel old. I still love going to bars and checking out bands, but I’m usually either 1. The oldest one there or 2. Just feel like the oldest one there. Apparently 37 is a weird age, too old to hang out with the […]
