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 […]

Linking a Thursday

Some links: I’m prefectly OK that this new Criticis Choice Television Awards thing pretty much reads like my weekly viewing calendar. If that makes me snooty, so be it. Sixteen of the 20 nominated shows are in my rotation — even if I really soured on Louie by the end of the first season and […]

The Genius of the Weinsteins

It’s one of those things looking back now that makes you say, “Duh.” In September, when The King’s Speech screened at the Toronto Film Festival, there was best picture buzz, but it was scant. That was about the same time that Social Network came out and stole every ounce of the Oscar talk — rightfully so. […]

Talkin’ Oscar

Little short on time, but yesterday was probably the first time I was in the same room with two Oscar nominees. Or at least two Oscar nominees five days before the Oscars in which they’re nominated. That happened yesterday at Honesdale High School of all places, where Mark Ruffalo (best supporting actor for Kids Are […]

Best Bets for Best Picture

Got some really good news. Well, I think it’s really good news. The PopRox live chat scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday to talk about Oscar nominations will NOT be behind the PoconoRecord.com paywall and will be FREE for all users. I’m pretty friggin’ happy about that. When the Pocono Record started the paywall a couple months ago, I made […]

Five Questions We Need Answered at the Golden Globes

You know that fun-loving brother you have that comes to family dinners once a year, proceeds to finish both bottles of wine he brought for everyone and says at least three things that compel at least half of the table to roll their eyes? That’s the Golden Globes. We treat them both the same way. We don’t […]

No Oscar for Stiller, Please!

(FYI, thoughts on the Sons of Anarchy finale are at the bottom because it’s spoiler-heavy …) Suffice it to say, I’m still catching up on 2010 movies. Technically, that’s like saying last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was a quiet little affair — both big understatements. Once the TV season stalls out in about a week or […]

Paring Down the Awards Shows

Thanks to everyone that stopped by the third PopRox live chat Friday! Always a good time, for me at least. Next one is scheduled for Sept. 3. Today’s links: There are too many awards shows. We know that. So just in case you were wondering, here’s how you know an awards show is about as […]
