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 [...]

Bring on the Movies!

Catching up: These first two weekends of December have been brutal for the box office and boring for the rest of us to follow along. Suffice it to say that ends this week, when the Hobbit (my guess: $70 million this weekend) kicks off 11 days of pure box office bliss. It’s one of the [...]

Learning from the Spirit Awards

I really, really hope he never gets another acting job, ever, [...]

Handy Dandy Summer 2012 Box Office Review Guide

(As is the Thursday policy, this is an extended preview of the Sunday’s PopRox column in the Pocono Record. The paper usually can’t hold what I wanna get out, and I’m allowed to be a little more free here. Just a little.) Going into a summer movie season, you always think you know what’s going [...]

Bourne, Spice Girls, Comics, Trailers. It’s a Lot.

Let’s clean out the bookmarks today, so some of this might be a tad old, but it’s stuff I’ve been meaning to get to: There it is! It’s in there! Someone finally did it! Someone from Warner Bros. finally came out and blamed the Colorado movie theater shooting tragedy for less-than-expected box office results for Dark [...]

Just Try and Keep Me from Movie Theaters

(This is a preview of the PopRox column that will appear in Sunday’s Pocono Record.) In my 37 years, there are very few places I’ve consistently considered a true sanctuary. The movie theater is probably the biggest one, even more so at this point in my life. But there have been threats to that sanctuary [...]
