Links: Done and done. I’m pretty pissed off I didn’t think of this before, that Justin Timberlake should be hosting the 2014 Oscars. You can rack your brain for a week and you won’t come up with a better candidate. Let’s go through some facts: 1. He’s universally adored by every woman on the planet. [...]

Smart Move, Seth

Some quick links for your Wednesday: Good for Seth MacFarlane to pretty much give the world the middle finger by saying he doesn’t want to host the Oscars again. What the frigg did anyone expect? The opening number basically looked and felt like a live-action Family Guy episode. The Lincoln assassination joke sounds exactly like [...]

It’s True. We Saw All Those Boobs.

Leftover Oscar thoughts: What’s worse, the chauvinistic We Saw Your Boobs song Seth MacFarlane belted out, or the fact that I knew all those movies for those specific nudity-related reasons and thought the list was incomplete and flawed? Why did he go with Monster’s Ball for Halle Berry instead of Swordfish? And Brokeback Mountain for [...]

Are You Team 2012 or Team 2013?

Really quickly: The start of the year is always a weird time, especially this year with Oscar nomination announcement date moved up (it’s on Thursday, about two weeks before usual).

Where Movies Go to Die

Short and sweet links, Walking Dead review at the bottom so you can avoid it if you haven’t seen it yet: Not a good weekend for Brad Pitt. Killing Them Softly decided it wanted to go toe-to-toe with Cloud Atlas for the title of biggest bomb of the fall — hard thing to do — [...]

More of the Most Devoted Pop Culture Fanbases

I loved the idea behind this Vulture ranking of the 25 most devoted pop culture fan bases. It’s a really good read and very informative if you have the time to go through all 25.

Breaking Down the Seth MacFarlane Choice

(This is an extended preview of the PopRox column that will appear in Sunday’s Pocono Record. It’s already kinda old now, so you can only imagine how old it’s going to seem on Sunday. Better enjoy it now.) Say this for the people who run the Academy Awards, they’re certainly thinking out of the box. [...]

Now Is the Time to Learn Who Seth MacFarlane Is

Let’s clean out my bookmarks: Remember like 10 years ago when Family Guy got canceled — twice — and no one knew the name Seth MacFarlane? Hope you enjoyed those days, because they are soooooo over. MacFarlane not only has the surprise hit of the year in his movie debut with Ted, not only does [...]

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, [...]
