Random Links to Get You Through Your Day (If You’re Not at the Die Hard Marathon)

Nope, I’m not at the Die Hard marathon over at Cinemark today. Thanks so much for bringing it up! Links: Is anyone else starting to get the feeling the Justice League movie is freaking doomed? The starts and stops have been going on since the 80s, then the writers strike, and now? When it should [...]

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.

Still Lingering Questions on A Christmas Story

(This is a preview of the PopRox column that will appear in Sunday’s Pocono Record.) When it comes to Christmas movies, nothing touches A Christmas Story. Not even Die Hard. But it’s not perfect, and I still have some questions after about a thousand viewings: Why is Ralphie so scared when Miss Shields is passive [...]

Wednesday links, and tomorrow brings us the blockbuster edition of the holiday movie preview, fyi: One of the biggest ratings battles coming in to this year was destined to be Tuesday nights between 9 and 10, when Fox, ABC and NBC were all airing sitcoms that not only were good, but were all pretty much [...]

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 [...]

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. That makes this as good a time as any to go back and assess my summer movie box office predictions from May. My predictions: 1. Tranny [...]

The Best Summer Movie of All Time

How would you define the best summer movie of all time? Over at Cinematical, they’re trying to figure out just that with 64-summer-movie tournament, a great idea I should have thought of first. Crap. The problem is it becomes a popularity contest. Oh really, Star Wars is getting crazy amounts of votes? Who would have [...]

The Remake Police: Real Genius

In case anyone is wondering, this is why I got into the blogging business. Because anywhere else, if I told someone, “I’m going to write 1,500 words about Real Genius,” one of two things would happen: 1. I’d be fired. 2.
