Superman or Sam Axe? You Decide

Links: Wait, this is Henry Cavill as Superman? He doesn’t look anything like the publicity shots we saw when he was announced as the new Superman. He looks about 10 years older than he did then. He just turned 27, and he looks like he’s 35, easy. He looks like Bruce Campbell’s twin brother in that […]

Last Chance for KISS Tickets!!!

(SADOWSKI NOTE: Oops! The deadline for KISS ticket entries is actually Thursday. Sorry for the confusion. I changed it in the blog post. My bad.) The immortal Stanley Spadowski is my inspiration today. “You’ve waited til the last minute … well, it’s the LAST MINUTE!!!” Then he twirled his mop around and fell on a […]

Wonder Why Wonder Woman Costume Was Bad

This is it. This may be the snowstorm that pushes me over the edge. Seriously. I’m just not sure how much more I can take. Snow on the first day of spring is one thing. Snow on Phillies’ opening day is another. Maybe I can distract you from the unholy crap falling from the sky […]

How Long Does Jon Hamm Put up with This?

Wednesday links: It’s official — Mad Men isn’t coming back til next year. This should surprise exactly no one, it was the worst-kept secret of the last few weeks. The problem with this won’t have anything to do with the quality of the show next season or how the product is delivered overall. The problem […]

TV’s Most Influential

You won’t see many more subjective lists than this, Adweek’s 100 most influential shows of all time. It’s a decent list for the most part, but a frustrating one nonetheless. I feel for Adweek, they probably took months to put this list together and justify each pick, just like I had to do over the […]

Sorry I Don’t Have More to Say About Elizabeth Taylor

Snowy Wednesday links: RIP Elizabeth Taylor. If you were born later than like 1970, you have to be a film buff to have seen her in anything because she fell off the acting map in the early 70s. FX isn’t exactly playing Cat on a Hot Tin roof twice a day like it shows Iron Man. The […]

Golden Globe Winners and Losers

We wanted some questions answered at the Golden Golbes last night and we got them with some distinct winners and losers from a pretty tame (lame?) ceremony that was so exciting that I Redbox’d Dinner for Schmucks and watched it instead for most of the night: WINNERS THE SOCIAL NETWORK. Easily the hands-down favorite to win […]
