How about “Like,” “Meh” and “Dislike”? That just about covers it, right? It works for my latest column gimmick, at least, going over [...]

Handy Dandy Summer 2012 Box Office Review Guide

(As is the Thursday policy, this is an extended preview of the Sunday’s PopRox column in the Pocono Record. The paper usually can’t hold what I wanna get out, and I’m allowed to be a little more free here. Just a little.) Going into a summer movie season, you always think you know what’s going [...]

When The Amazing Spider-Man premieres in theaters July 3, it represents one of the biggest risks in Hollywood history. Sony, the studio behind the first three Spider-Man movies, decided to trash [...]

Roger Sterling Can’t Remember What Happened. Why Should You?

Time to play catch-up since we’ve gone without links for a while. And by the by, it’s just four days until the Mad Men premiere. Did someone say Mad Men? Of course I did! It’s not insane at all for people to wonder whether the viewing public will come back to Mad Men when it [...]

Like hearing about the villain in next year’s Spider-Man movie. For months, we’ve just assumed it’s going to be the [...]
