Let’s All Stop the “Bond is Back” Stuff. Please. Pretty Please.

Short one today, but just remember to thank a veteran: You know what the worst play on words is that we’ve heard about 8 gazillion times for the last week? “Bond is back!” Two reasons: 1. It’s corny and overplayed. The quote whores of movie reviewers (the people who write things in their review purposely [...]

Winter TV to Be Excited For

(This is a preview of Sunday’s PopRox column in the Pocono Record.) Winter used to be a TV wasteland. Networks premiered their best shows in September and used midseason replacements as filler to get them through the year. Not anymore. The winter season now means more good TV shows starting up than ever before, so here [...]

Super 8 Gets a Trailer. A Real Trailer.

Wednesday morning links: See, was this so hard? JJ Abrams finally has released a full-length, full-disclosure kind of trailer for the summer event movie Super 8. That’s about eight months since the original WTF teaser trailer turned people against the movie and started the Internet buzzing about it. OK, turned me against the movie. It’s already got [...]

Super Bowl Hangover

I’ve been out of touch with the world for a couple days, so I’m learning about all this stuff as I write it, enjoy the sports-related links: The Super Bowl is barely about football anymore.

Comic-Con 2010 Pick Up

2011 already seemed old at this weekend’s Comic-Con. Just a couple years ago, it was considered pretty groundbreaking when a movie cast/team would show up at Comic-Con to promote a movie that wasn’t premiering for another year. When the Iron Man cast did it in 2007 to tout the 2008 release, trailer in hand, people thought [...]

First Piece of the TV Pilot Puzzle Put Together

I keep meaning to alert people when I won’t be posting on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday, but I never get around to it. I have to work on Saturday, so I was off yesterday and didn’t post. Sorry. A couple days late on this, but just saw that the next Batman — I refuse to [...]
