Bring on the Movies!

Catching up: These first two weekends of December have been brutal for the box office and boring for the rest of us to follow along. Suffice it to say that ends this week, when the Hobbit (my guess: $70 million this weekend) kicks off 11 days of pure box office bliss. It’s one of the [...]

Don’t Let the Door Hit You in the Butt, Terra Nova

Some links: Good timing! Right after adressing the Terra Nova situation last week, Fox came out and said the show is officially canceled. Apparently Fox doesn’t like it when the network gets bad PopRox publicity. For some reason, no one is calling the show a disaster when it clearly was. Fox spent huge money on [...]

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 [...]

Comic-Con, Captain America, Glee and the Emmys

Tons to get to playing catch-up from my vacation last week, let’s hit it: It’s a waste of time to get in to how geeks became the rulers of the Hollywood world, but this weekend is our Christmas — Comic-Con. I’ve never been and never will, not because I’ve got two kids and it’s 4,000 [...]

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 [...]

Four Reasons to be Worried About Glee

Unapologetically, unflinchingly, unfailingly, I’m a Glee fan. It was the best and funniest new show of the last television season, featured the most impressive pilot episode of any show in years and did it all by introducing relative newcomers to the TV landscape. It’s one of the most brutally honest — for better or worse [...]

Summer 2010 movies are soooooo last week

The rumors had been swirling, but now it’s official — Matthew Vaughn will direct X-Men: First Class. That’s not the surprising part since it’s already been discussed around these parts. The shocker is the release date on June 3, 2011 — 13 months from now. Huh. So a big-budget, CGI-heavy studio tentpole with no cast, that just [...]
