The Perfect Oscars Host Has Been Built Already

Links: Done and done. I’m pretty pissed off I didn’t think of this before, that Justin Timberlake should be hosting the 2014 Oscars. You can rack your brain for a week and you won’t come up with a better candidate. Let’s go through some facts: 1. He’s universally adored by every woman on the planet. [...]

Avengers, Stern and Jennifer Love Hewitt

(For some unknown reason, this didn’t post on Monday. My bad. Hope this is still semi-enjoyable.) Linkage: Why stop now? I managed to post something about Avengers for, like, 20 straight posts, so how could I possibly resist when it just sets the record — excuse me, obliterates the record — for opening weekend box [...]

Whitney Houston, One of the Best Ever

I’m pretty sure I’ve never considered myself a Whitney Houston fan. Never hated her either. But growing up in the 80s, she couldn’t be avoided. She was everywhere, and there were completely legitimate arguments over which female singer ruled the decade, her or Madonna (Madonna in a landslide, but that’s just me). What Whitney Houston did, [...]

Modern Family Swearing, LL Rising, Cougar Town Returning and More

Normally, I’d take any opportunity to stick it to the Hollywood studio machine. So under normal circumstances, this Internet blackout thing would be right up my alley. But a couple of things intervened: 1. Because of my schedule (took a four-day weekend for my nephew’s first birthday in Virginia Beach, I’m not apologizing for that), I haven’t put [...]

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 [...]

Cancellation bombs Will Be Dropped — Soon

Monday links on a slow news day: OK, so I didn’t explicitly say it, but when I predicted we’d get five movies over the weekend to debut over $20 million, I meant the entire holiday weekend, which includes today. So when the top five movies through Sunday ranged between $21.8 million and $17 million, they’ll [...]

It’s Not About Politics, It’s About Bad TV

Some quick news today: Let’s not bring tout, his down to politics or Tea Parties. Let’s bring this down to TV — Sarah Palin’s reality show sucked, so it shouldn’t be surprising that it’s likely not coming back for a second season. If they infused it with Ted McGinley reading the Wall Street Journal for [...]

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 [...]
