More Star Wars, USA Cancellations and a New Boy Meets World

Catch-up links: Sorry that I can’t stop writing about Star Wars. I think until 2015 rolls around, I’m just gonna hang out and be ridiculously skeptical about a new Star Wars movie. That’s just how I’m gonna play it, thanks. That gives us 2.5 years to come up with all kinds of different conspiracy theories [...]

We’re Watching You, Romney. And So Is Riggins.

Links, along with some spoiler-ific Walking Dead talk I threw all the way down the bottom: Crowded box office weekend with a crowded outcome, but nothing this week was good enough to take town Taken 2, which repeated as the box office king. That means Argo will have to take its Oscar nomination and be [...]

SNL, Avengers and Stern

Programming note: I think next week I’ll start some fall TV previews, night-by-night. That means for the next month, or maybe longer because there are a ton of premieres in October this year, we’re going to be really TV heavy. I try to watch and review as much as I can of the new shows, [...]

[...]

The Family Movie Smackdown

Let’s hit the links: Happy Feet 2 might be the luckiest movie of the year. The movie bombed like silly, but no one even noticed because of Twilight’s major haul. So instead of having to answer questions like, “How many times can you make a kids movie disguised as environmental propaganda?” Warner Brothers gets to [...]

My Love Letter to Michael Scott

Dear Michael Scott, I love you. Just to clarify, I’m not a stalker. Sure, I’ve actually looked for you around the streets of Scranton. And yes, I know you’re not real. But I looked anyway. You know, just in case. Also just to clarify, it’s not “I want to have your babies” love. It’s more [...]

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 [...]
