Breaking Down the Seth MacFarlane Choice

(This is an extended preview of the PopRox column that will appear in Sunday’s Pocono Record. It’s already kinda old now, so you can only imagine how old it’s going to seem on Sunday. Better enjoy it now.) Say this for the people who run the Academy Awards, they’re certainly thinking out of the box. […]

Time to Start Thinking About How We’ll Say Good-Bye

Been pretty busy this week, sorry I missed the mid-week blog. Let’s see if I can make up for it: Thinking of doing something special for Michael Scott’s last episode on The Office, just like NBC is doing. So here’s my idea, and I need your help with it. In the April 24 Sunday PopRox […]

No Oscar for Stiller, Please!

(FYI, thoughts on the Sons of Anarchy finale are at the bottom because it’s spoiler-heavy …) Suffice it to say, I’m still catching up on 2010 movies.

The Advent of Poconos 3-D

The Poconos has 3-D! Well, not yet, not til Friday, when the Poconos Movieplex unveils its new 3-D screen for the release of Piranha 3-D. And not that it matters to me since I have yet to even consider seeing a 3-D movie, but not having one feels like we’ve been living in some barren Arctic outpost. […]
