Revisiting the Summer Movie Slate and Looking to the Fall

Rain or no rain, we can still hit the links: It’s the Tuesday after Labor Day. Kids are back in school. It’s cold. The only thing that says it’s still summer is the date.

Last Chance for KISS Tickets!!!

(SADOWSKI NOTE: Oops! The deadline for KISS ticket entries is actually Thursday. Sorry for the confusion. I changed it in the blog post. My bad.)

Always thought to be too geeky or genre-specific, the release of the original X-Men movie in 2000 proved what most of us already knew: That comic books [...]

Future Currently Bright at Mountain Laurel (we hope)

There will be plenty of time to criticize the abridged lineup the Mountain Laurel Pocono Mountains Performing Arts Center will be putting on this summer. Plenty of time.

Some Questions That Need Answers

Monday linkage: DID THE GREEN LANTERN SITUATION GET WORSE OR BETTER? This was supposed to be the weekend that Green Lantern made a comeback at WonderCon, when they showed a four-minute trailer-type thing to make up for what they thought was a poop trailer.
