Smart Move, Seth

Some quick links for your Wednesday: Good for Seth MacFarlane to pretty much give the world the middle finger by saying he doesn’t want to host the Oscars again. What the frigg did anyone expect? The opening number basically looked and felt like a live-action Family Guy episode. The Lincoln assassination joke sounds exactly like […]

Not the Best Day to Die Hard

Links, and a spoiler-heavy review for A Good Day to Die Hard down at the bottom if that interests you: When you do a sequel, you want to have certain nods to the former movie without making it a total copy off the first one (*cough* Hangover 2 *cough cough*). It’s a tough line to […]

Nope, I’m not at the Die Hard marathon over at Cinemark today. Thanks so much for bringing it up! Links: Is anyone else starting to get the feeling the Justice League movie is freaking doomed? The starts and stops have been going on since the 80s, then the writers strike, and now? When it should […]

Just one more day to enter to win Ed Lover tickets for Saturday night, check out all the details and rules on how enter and win! Only caught a little bit of the Grammys last night in between getting the kids to bed and Walking Dead, but I did catch Justin Timberlake’s performance. It was […]

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. […]

JJ Abrams: Right or Wrong?

Stay safe out on those roads everyone! UPDATE, 4 p.m.: The Pocono Beer Club has postponed its meeting at Pocono Brewing Company to next Monday. So yeah, it’s slick out there. The problem with this blog is that I’ve got a pretty good groove going, and the end of the week is taken up. Thursdays […]

At Least Now I Won’t Have to Type the Show’s Full Name Anymore

Stay indoors and enjoy the links: Dammit. It’s not like the writing wasn’t on the wall for Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, but it was nice to have hope when the ABC bosses backed the show a couple weeks ago at the winter press tour. Now, James Van Der Beek tweeted this … […]

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. Even though it B-O-M-B-E-D BOMBED this weekend to the tune of a putrid $6 million, […]
