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. It’s actually a really good piece of what I define as Internet entertainment journalism these days. It helps that I […]

Dumb and Dumber and Dumber and Dumber (and Dumber, etc.)

So the schedule around here has been completely shot the last few weeks for a variety of reason I won’t bother you with. I try to stay on a Monday-Wednesday-Thursday (Sunday column preview)-Friday (Weekend Fun Guide) schedule, but it just hasn’t happened lately. Yesterday it was because I got stuck at the track all afternoon. […]

Bring Wet Hot American Summer 2 Back to the Poconos!

Chat alert! Chat alert! We haven’t done one of these in a while, so I figured a pre-Oscars chat would be a good time to get one in. It’s going to be Friday, Feb. 24 at 11 a.m. We’ll be talking all things Oscar, winter TV and since it’ll be on a Friday and I […]

Coachella Lineup, the Return of Mad Men, and the Party Down and 24 Movies

Programming note: We might be a little light this week, sorry. Links today, Sunday column preview Thursday, and then I’ll try to fit one in another day, but can’t guarantee it. Hitting the links: PopRoxers know there isn’t too much in here about music, but I do get excited when Coachella and Bonnaroo announce their lineups […]

Don’t Read This Until You’ve Watched Last Night’s Sons of Anarchy. You’ve Been Warned.

Rainy Wednesday links: RIP Juice. Oops, I mean, SONS OF ANARCHY SPOILER ALERT!!! That’s better. Now, RIP Juice on Sons of Anarchy. Saw this one coming, especially when Kurt Sutter tweeted yesterday, “Juice fans do not miss tonight’s episode.” The real news there is that apparently there were Juice fans. Seeing as a run for senator […]

Heh Heh. The Breaking Bad Finale Was Called “Face Off.” Get It?

Just so everyone knows, when I write those Sunday columns that go in the paper, I write them on Thursdays. This one, actually, I had to write on Wednesday. After that, I have no control of what happens. So if you read Sunday’s column and thought, “Wait, didn’t I hear that The Simpsons contract thing […]

Contemplating the (Improbable) Loss of The Simpsons and Dexter

Never forget the first rule of Hollywood: When there is money to be made, no franchise ends. There are very few exceptions to the rule, and those exceptions come about only because the creative team decides to pass up the money (think Titanic or Seinfeld). There has never, ever been a case where a Hollywood studio has […]

Previewing the Fall TV Season, Sunday-Tuesday

I’ve been doing this little gimmick to preview the Fall TV season for a couple years now. And even though my viewing habits have changed, the premise hasn’t. We have three stages of viewing: Watch it live: The first priority. These are the shows I cannot, will not miss. DVR: I’ll catch up on these shows […]
