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 [...]

New Dark Knight Trailer, the Return of Daria and Another New Trailer That Might Interest You

Felt like posting a lot of video today, enjoy. Sorry if it takes a while to load on your phone. Dammit, MTV! That’s dirty pool! After bringing back new episodes of Beavis and Butthead last year, you shouldn’t put out press releases saying how you’re bringing back Daria. People immediately assume you’re making new episodes [...]

Dark Knight, Prometheus, Dare Invade Sacred Avengers Week

Making Sci-Fi Work on TV

Successful science fiction shows on network television are about as rare as an actual laugh in an episode of Two and a Half Men. That doesn’t stop TV networks from trying.

Underworld, Steven Tyler, Movie Monologues and More, More More

Pats only giving three is a gift. Take it now and tune the next two weeks out. That’s all I’ll say on the matter. Video-heavy links: If you went to a big high school, people who went to small high schools are always shocked to hear you say, “I graduated with her, but I’m pretty sure [...]

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 Best of 2011 TV

The title says it all, the 10 best shows of 2011. I didn’t rank them, for no other reason than I didn’t want to. Let’s hit it, with the knowledge that I don’t have any premium channels, so there won’t be any mentions of Dexter, Game of Thrones, Homeland, Boardwalk Empire, etc.: JUSTIFIED: No show [...]

Comic-Con, Captain America, Glee and the Emmys

Tons to get to playing catch-up from my vacation last week, let’s hit it: It’s a waste of time to get in to how geeks became the rulers of the Hollywood world, but this weekend is our Christmas — Comic-Con. I’ve never been and never will, not because I’ve got two kids and it’s 4,000 [...]
