Sorry I Don’t Have More to Say About Elizabeth Taylor

Snowy Wednesday links: RIP Elizabeth Taylor. If you were born later than like 1970, you have to be a film buff to have seen her in anything because she fell off the acting map in the early 70s. FX isn’t exactly playing Cat on a Hot Tin roof twice a day like it shows Iron Man. The […]

Sequels: A Necessary Evil

Yet another attempt to clean out the inbox and the supply you with some time wasting links: Wanna hear something thoroughly unsurprising? 2011 will see more sequels hit theaters than any other year. Normally, this is where I shake my head at the American movie-going public and go into convulsions under my desk. But I’m in a […]

Paycheck. Big Paycheck.

Linkage: It was only a matter of time before it happened, but James Bond will be back, with Daniel Craig starring and Sam Mendes directing, in 2012. There was just too much easy money at stake for the movie not to happen. It’s not surprising that the movie is getting made, what is surprising is […]

Have We Seen the Last of the Jack Black Era?

Here’s to hoping Santa was good to everyone, you got through Christmas without throwing a snowman plate at your stepmother and your drive in to work today was accident-free. That last one is asking a lot. If you’re on the mountain today, I’d advise not even going outside if you don’t have to. I stopped […]

In Other News, Nightmare on Elm Street is Fiction

You’ve already read tons of interviews for The Social Network now, so it’s silly to cram another one down your throat. Suffice it to say I really, really liked it. But as much as this movie is a commentary on the founding of one of the most popular Internet sites ever, it’s real story vs. the […]

It’s Not Hard — Sucky Movies Equal Sucky Returns

Time for our reminders of the week: The monthly PopRox chat is set for Friday at noon. Yesterday I asked for suggestions on a name for this monthly activity and got a great suggestion from ace Pocono Record designer Andrea Higgins: “The PopRox Nooner.” Good luck to anyone trying to beat that out. Friday at noon […]
