Who’s the Tattle Tale?!?!?!

(SONS OF ANARCHY FINALE SPOILERS COMING IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN LAST NIGHT’S FINALE YET! TURN AROUND, LAST WARNING!) Who narked on Tara? Everything else is pretty cut and dry from Tuesday’s Sons of Anarchy season finale. Clay’s looking at the electric chair. The Sons are down a couple more members. Gemma and Jax are together […]

Where Movies Go to Die

Short and sweet links, Walking Dead review at the bottom so you can avoid it if you haven’t seen it yet: Not a good weekend for Brad Pitt. Killing Them Softly decided it wanted to go toe-to-toe with Cloud Atlas for the title of biggest bomb of the fall — hard thing to do — […]

Your Poconos Weekend Fun Guide

We’re a little light this week, so I got a little bored and just posted and linked to a whole bunch of videos to go along with the weekend happenings: Ski season gets underway in earnest this weekend, with Camelback, Shawnee and Blue Mountain all opening tomorrow. Since they’re only going to have a limited […]

How Movies and Moviemakers Can Change Your Life

(This is an extended preview of the PopRox column running in Sunday’s Pocono Record. Why now write about this now, you ask? Because Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction will be playing in one-night revival shows at Cinemark Stroud Mall next week.) In 1993 I was 18 and barely had any serious experience with movies. I […]

Learning from the Spirit Awards

Wednesday links that I write while hoping I’ll never get stuck with a heroin needle by a crazy man: Let’s hope no one got ahead of themselves and made any signs that said, “Pocono Pines, Home of the Only 2-Time Dancing with the Stars Champion Kelly Monaco.” She lost last night. Maybe I won’t be […]

If You Employ Chevy Chase, You Stink

Let’s clean out some bookmarks and get some new stuff in: This whole Chevy Chase/Community thing is just a freaking nightmare for fans who have had to sit around and watch him ruin one of the best comedies on TV from the inside out. I really, really hope he never gets another acting job, ever, […]

TV Comings and … Nope, Only Comings

Getting caught up with TV renewals: ABC gave a full-season order to Nashville, giving me a full year to avoid the show. Sweet! It’s probably one of my biggest disappointments of the year. I should have known any show inherently about country music that prominently features Hayden Panettiere would piss me off, but I was blinded […]

Let’s All Stop the “Bond is Back” Stuff. Please. Pretty Please.

Short one today, but just remember to thank a veteran: You know what the worst play on words is that we’ve heard about 8 gazillion times for the last week? “Bond is back!” Two reasons: 1. It’s corny and overplayed. The quote whores of movie reviewers (the people who write things in their review purposely […]

More Star Wars, a Great Time to Be a Movie Fan, and Our Local Model

Links for the day, back tomorrow with the Fun Guide: If I’m going to be sick of the Star Wars rumors for the next 2.5 years, then by golly, so are you. I wonder if I could manage to post some kind of Star Wars rumor every day until 2015? Hmmmm. That sounds like a […]

Pre-November Sweeps Awards

(This is an extended preview of Sunday’s PopRox column in the Pocono Record. As per the usual, it doesn’t contain any commentary on HBO or Showtime shows, because I don’t get paid enough to subscribe to pay-TV. If you’re looking for thoughts on Homeland, you probably know where to find them by now.) This is […]
