Enter electronically only, and the preferred method is by messaging the PopRox Facebook page (will is due for a makeover really, really soon). There was never a question that another [...]

The Risk of The Amazing Spider-Man

(This is an extended preview of the PopRox column in Sunday’s Pocono Record, kinda like tonight’s preview of the season premiere of Wilfred on FX). 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 [...]

Don’t Read This Until You’ve Watched Last Night’s Sons of Anarchy. You’ve Been Warned.

Rainy Wednesday links: RIP Juice. Oops, I mean, SONS OF ANARCHY SPOILER ALERT!!! That’s better. Now, RIP Juice on Sons of Anarchy. Saw this one coming, especially when Kurt Sutter tweeted yesterday, “Juice fans do not miss tonight’s episode.” The real news there is that apparently there were Juice fans. Seeing as a run for senator [...]

Post-Oscar Thoughts and Kevin Smith the Trailblazer

Sorry it’s been so long without some straight links, so here we go: I’m not buying, at all, that King’s Speech is the new favorite for the best picture Oscar simply because it got the most nominations. It’s far inferior to Social Network and Inception and Social Network has all the momentum even though it [...]

The Nooner with PopRox live chat is the first Friday of every month at noon, and that means we have another one coming up Friday.

The Summer That Was

The good news about the box office for the weekend is that all three of the new releases were non-sequels, one of the few times that’s happened this summer. The bad news is that there’s probably already an Expendables 2 script being written right now, the other two were book adaptations and Scott Pilgrim laid [...]

Comic-Con is Upon Us — Just Don’t Get Too Crazy
