Our Lovely Weekend of Flops

It’s no secret I love a good bomb. I salivate for it. So yeah, I was like a pig in crap this weekend: When a movie gets pulled from a summer release and is moved to the winter, you can be pretty sure of one or more of a couple of things: 1. The studio [...]

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 [...]

More of the Most Devoted Pop Culture Fanbases

I loved the idea behind this Vulture ranking of the 25 most devoted pop culture fan bases. It’s a really good read and very informative if you have the time to go through all 25. It’s actually a really good piece of what I define as Internet entertainment journalism these days. It helps that I [...]

Movie Review Time

Time to start my movie catch-ups for 2012, and I have to do them quickly because the new TV year starts two weeks from today when Sons of Anarchy starts its fifth season. Three reviews of movies I caught over vacation both at the theater and on DVD: RUBY SPARKS (playing right now at the [...]

Your Week Fun Guide

Some quick local things since I didn’t get to them Friday because they weren’t technically on the weekend: Remember the contest to win a pair of tickets to see Being Flynn, which includes a Q&A with its star with major NEPA and Pocono roots, Paul Dano. In case you don’t know the name (you should), [...]

How PR Works in Today’s World of Entertainment

Links: UPDATE, 2:25 p.m.: Just thought I’d throw this in here that Glee (fourth season), Raising Hope (third season) and New Girl (second season), all PopRox-approved shows, have been renewed by Fox for the 2012-13 TV season. None of it is that big of a surprise, although Raising Hope’s ratigns aren’t exactly fantastic and it loses a [...]

Sequels, Remakes and Books. Yeah, That’s Right. Books.

We’re low on local party links for the weekend. It’s Easter, whaddya expect? Although just so you’re aware, Warped Tour tickets for Montage go on sale today. So let’s just hit the links, there’s plenty there: How big is Hunger Games? X-Men is arranging its schedule around it. That big. Pretty weird since X-Men was the [...]

Won’t the Real Don Draper Please Stand Up, Please Stand Up, Please Stand Up

Quick hits today, let’s go … There was a time when Nip/Tuck was my favorite TV show. I was obsessed with it, and mostly, with Christian Troy. Not necessarily Julian McMahon, who played Christian, but the character of Christian. He was hysterical. Everything he said was either off-the-wall funny or really, really important. Self-centered and shallow, but [...]

Courtney Love, Hunger Games, The Dude and More

Make sure you enter the contest to win tickets to the Marky Ramone concert! I’ve got two to give away. Also, I made a mistake Monday by saying the Stroudsburg St. Patrick’s Day Parade is Sunday. It’s not. It’s March 25. I endorsed that idea a couple years ago of just being the latest St. [...]

How March Became a Movie Month

Underneath what The Lorax did over the weekend — a huge, mostly unexpected $70.2 million opening — is that it could be kicking off one of the biggest box office months of March ever. Further below that is the trend no one seems to be noticing – that March has somehow transformed itself into the biggest non-summer, [...]
