You’re All Looking Forward to Another Late Night Feud

Links: (UPDATE: Of course as soon as I hit the “publish” button, the news became official. Jay Leno is leaving The Tonight Show next spring, and Jimmy Fallon will be taking over the hosting duties. This … this could be awesome. Anyway, this is what I thought when it was only moderately kinda official …) [...]

Bourne, Spice Girls, Comics, Trailers. It’s a Lot.

Let’s clean out the bookmarks today, so some of this might be a tad old, but it’s stuff I’ve been meaning to get to: There it is! It’s in there! Someone finally did it! Someone from Warner Bros. finally came out and blamed the Colorado movie theater shooting tragedy for less-than-expected box office results for Dark [...]

Comic Book Movie News, TV Themes and the Daily Dose of a Famous Hot Lady in a Bikini

Links today: I’m sure no one remembers this other than me, but last year a reader emailed me to let me know a local woman was on Letterman the night before and Dave joked with her for the entire show. I put out a call for someone, anyone, to let me know who this was so that [...]

Monday Links

One of these days I’m going to find time for the blog. One of these days. Links: Couldn’t be happier that Footloose failed to live up to box office expectations. There is no way Hollywood is just going to stop remaking anything with even a sliver of kitsch/retro value, but maybe this is a step [...]

The Evolution of Marvel’s Grip on the First Weekend in May

It used to be the first summer movie weekend of the year was Memorial Day. There was some unwritten rule — or maybe it was written, who knows? — that if you made a big, expensive blockbuster movie that summer movie audiences salivate for, you couldn’t release it until the end of May. No discussions [...]

Some Questions That Need Answers

Monday linkage: DID THE GREEN LANTERN SITUATION GET WORSE OR BETTER? This was supposed to be the weekend that Green Lantern made a comeback at WonderCon, when they showed a four-minute trailer-type thing to make up for what they thought was a poop trailer. But this one is worse because it looks like a video [...]

It Could End No Other Way

We’re backed up so let’s hit the links. Gonna pick the winners for the Wurst Festival tickets later this afternoon, and I’ll post the winner tomorrow. It’s confirmed now what we pretty much already knew — Edward Norton won’t be playing the Hulk in The Avengers movie. Both sides are saying talks were in progress for [...]

Four Summers, Four Right Picks

Sorry I was gone for so long, though I’m sure no one shed a tear. That leaves plenty to catch up on: I just had a great vacation, one of my best, most relaxing ever. Yet one of the happiest, most satisfying moments of the vacation came Sunday when I found out the official PopRox box office bomb [...]

Memorial Day Blahs

I love the box office stories of every weekend, it’s the first thing I read when I come in at the start of the week. They’re so pathetically hilarious, and they never disappoint. No matter how poorly a movie performs, there are always studio types who spin it so that it looks like their movie [...]
