Sorry Judd. No Oscar for You.

Remember when the WWF only had four pay-per-views a year, the ones that are still around and are still the major PPVs? Wrestlemania, Summer Slam, Royal Rumble and Survivor Series (in that order) — that’s the list. Everything else is gravy. Well with all the new days people find excuses to go out, drink and […]

The New Halloween Movie Champ

Monday links: There can’t be more than five or six fans of Saw left out there, but those who are will be disappointed to learn it now has been officially supplanted as the Halloween franchise of hollywood’s choice. That mantle now belongs solely to Paranormal Activity after it just set an October opening weekend record […]

Around the Poconos …

I have no idea where to even start with this after having not posted for almost two weeks, so we’re going with a straight stream of consciousness thing here, whatever I find is what I’m throwing on. Wait, I know where to start with some things I missed — locally. So here goes: Pike County […]

Tales of the Spineless

I try to stay to a schedule of Monday-Wednesday-Friday, but there are times like last Friday when I get held up in court all day. It just happens that way sometimes. So sorry I missed the blog on Friday. Time to catch up on a ton of stuff: If you’re like me, you were watching […]

bigelow’s big night

Has anyone ever had a better Oscar night than Kathryn Bigelow? The only thing she didn’t do during the four-hour telecast Sunday was cure cancer. Wait, did she? In the span of four hours, consider the following: –She watched and smiled ear-to-ear and clapped profusely while her little movie about an American Army bomb defusing team […]

Oscar picks not as hard as usual — 10 movies or not

Making Oscar picks is hard. Kind of like how hard it’s going to be for Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin to make a cohesive, thoughtful joke Sunday night. First, you have to see all the movies. Then you have to formulate your own opinions on those movies. Then you watch all the other awards shows to […]

grammy round up

So I watched a decent chunk of the Grammys last night. And by decent chunk, I mean I saw about three full performances and parts of about three or four others. Some thoughts: –Does the younger generation even know who Stevie Nicks is? And when I say young generation, I’m specifically talking about Taylor Swift. Did they […]

avatar is the best (around!)

A day without TV news? Nooooooo!!! It’s true. Just about. Around the movie world: What can you say about Avatar that hasn’t been said already? It’s now officially the biggest movie ever. What people seem to be glossing over is how utterly incredible it is that the same director has the top two movies, and […]

golden globe fallout

Some PopRox scheduling: Looking to throw out some best of the decade stuff over New Year’s Week, Dec. 28-31. No best of the year yet, since that’s sooooooo 2008. Maybe in January sometime, but I know I haven’t seen enough movies to make a top 10 list yet. As for best of the decade, right […]
