Top 20 Movies of 2012

My favorite blog post of the year, my top 20 movies of 2012. Yeah, it’s late. But since I don’t actually review movies, I don’t get them sent to me by the studio. I gotta schlep around and wait for them to come to a local theater. That also means I haven’t seen everything that [...]

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 [...]

A Good Day to (Talk About) Die Hard

(This is a preview of the PopRox column in Sunday’s Pocono Record. Since it’s impossible to find a Die Hard video link without naughty language, be warned that some of these links aren’t appropriate if you’re at work with the sound turned up on your computer. You’ve officially been warned.) I don’t know anyone that [...]

Keeping Warm in the Winter with TV and Movies

(This is a preview of Sunday’s PopRox column in the Pocono Record.) When you live in northeast Pennsylvania, you’re used to hunkering down in the winter, boarding up the windows and doors and hoping you don’t have to go outside for any other reason than a beer run. Luckily, TV and movies are around to [...]

The Death of the Action Star

Lost in the midst of everyone popping a boner for how awesome it is that Liam Neeson has turned himself into an action star (including me) is that no one has asked the question: Wait, how the hell did a 60-year-old thespian who looks like my dad at my college graduation just become one of [...]

Maybe There Actually Should Be a Liam Neeson Day

If you saw New Girl last week, then Eagle fans are to Nick as Michael Vick is to Jess. We’re his emotional fluffer. We get all the perils and frustrations of the relationship while Atlanta fans already got the rewards when he was actually good. I’m not sure if I’ve ever been this frustrated as [...]

Name That Fantasy Football Team

In the next few weeks, many of you will be asked to make one of the biggest decisions of your year. It’s one that can’t be stepped into lightly. It takes careful planning, a considerable amount of thought and plenty of ingenuity. It will define who you are in the eyes of friends and family [...]

George Lopez, TV Show Comings and Goings and Bruce Willis Jumps the Shark for Good

Right to the links, we’re loaded today: I can’t say that I watched more than 37 consecutive seconds of any episode of Lopez Tonight. Which also means that I’ve never watched 37 consecutive seconds of anything George Lopez has ever done. So it’s not really moving my needle that the talk show got canned and [...]

Summer 2010 movies are soooooo last week

The rumors had been swirling, but now it’s official — Matthew Vaughn will direct X-Men: First Class. That’s not the surprising part since it’s already been discussed around these parts. The shocker is the release date on June 3, 2011 — 13 months from now. Huh. So a big-budget, CGI-heavy studio tentpole with no cast, that just [...]
