The Weekend Awaits

First notice — we’re two weeks away from another PopRox chat. Just thought I’d throw that out there. Today’s links: This is always the most depressing box office week of the year, when studios trot out its trailer trash hoping to get some kind of return on the fact that it’s still summer, even though the movies […]

The Advent of Poconos 3-D

The Poconos has 3-D! Well, not yet, not til Friday, when the Poconos Movieplex unveils its new 3-D screen for the release of Piranha 3-D. And not that it matters to me since I have yet to even consider seeing a 3-D movie, but not having one feels like we’ve been living in some barren Arctic outpost. […]

Sick of Sequels? Or Are You Just Sick of Bad Movies?

Perhaps calling the lagging box office so far this summer movie season “Sequelitis” is a little short-sighted. Yeah, every summer movie seems to be a sequel so far this summer. And yeah, all of them have underperformed the lofty expectations set upon them. Maybe the expectations weren’t terribly realistic — we’ve already covered the lunacy […]

Memorial Day Blahs

I love the box office stories of every weekend, it’s the first thing I read when I come in at the start of the week. They’re so pathetically hilarious, and they never disappoint. No matter how poorly a movie performs, there are always studio types who spin it so that it looks like their movie […]

Iron Man 3, the Future of NBC and How Will Jack Bauer End?

Straight links today: Iron Man 2 is on my schedule for next week, so I wasn’t one of the people spending a collective $133 million on it this weekend. That’s almost $30 million off the opening weekend record of Dark Knight in 2008, proving the talk of it breaking it the opening weekend record was […]
