The Family Movie Smackdown

Let’s hit the links: Happy Feet 2 might be the luckiest movie of the year. The movie bombed like silly, but no one even noticed because of Twilight’s major haul. So instead of having to answer questions like, “How many times can you make a kids movie disguised as environmental propaganda?” Warner Brothers gets to […]

Our First Cancellation! Our First Cancellation!

Spent the morning out at the new tree top adventure course at Skytop. Don’t believe me?                   There. Now you have to believe me. The story about the new course will be in the paper tomorrow. On to the links, which might be a little shorter than usual, […]

To All Those Holding Their Breath … Exhale. Please.

Short on time yet again today, but I’ll be back tomorrow with full links. Just wanted to quickly mention one of the dumbest things I’ve heard a supposedly smart person say in quite some time. During an Arrested Development reunion event in New York City on Sunday, show creator Mitch Hurwitz, for the 5 trillionth […]

Don’t Think for a Second This is the End of Kate Gosselin

One more day for ZZ Top tickets, I’m pulling the winning entry at 2 p.m. Wednesday. If you want a shot at them, get an entry in pronto. This blog hasn’t been around for a very long time, so I haven’t outlasted many people. But I am going to enjoy the fact that I outlasted […]

If C. Thomas Howell’s Part Gets Cut, You Know Why

Straight links, and they’re long today to catch up with some big news of the weekend:  It’s an interesting phenomenon. We hear rumors so much and so often that we just tend to believe them. Like hearing about the villain in next year’s Spider-Man movie. For months, we’ve just assumed it’s going to be the […]

Paycheck. Big Paycheck.

Linkage: It was only a matter of time before it happened, but James Bond will be back, with Daniel Craig starring and Sam Mendes directing, in 2012. There was just too much easy money at stake for the movie not to happen. It’s not surprising that the movie is getting made, what is surprising is […]

More Boats N Hoes!

A whole week without links, sorry about that: As funny as Step Brothers is — and it’s probably one of my 10 favorite comedies of the 2000s — I’m the one fan that isn’t too excited about the possibility of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly cutting a rap album. I’m not that much of […]

Where Does South Park Go from Here?

We say this because we love — South Park is at a crossroads. The animated sitcom that belongs in any discussion of “Best Show of the Last 20 Years,” may be running out of gas. The consistent issuance of classic-type episodes on a week-by-week basis hasn’t happened since 2004’s eighth year, and a season is […]

Office Talk

There is a dark cloud lingering over the upcoming seventh season of the popular, northeast Pennsylvania based NBC sitcom, “The Office.” With Steve Carell’s much-publicized departure from Michael Scott’s corner office at the end of the season, the decision as to who will replace the five-time Emmy nominee is partly on the shoulders of Stroudsburg […]

Learning About Movies, Mad Men and the Emmys

Even though the movies blew, there was a lot to be learned this weekend at the box office, stuff we and every Hollywood studio should already have known, but apparently needed convincing: —Buddy Ackerman would be proud, because “male macho bullsh!t” wins out again. Sylvester Stallone took a cheesy idea, one that could easily have gone […]
