Superman or Sam Axe? You Decide

Links: Wait, this is Henry Cavill as Superman? He doesn’t look anything like the publicity shots we saw when he was announced as the new Superman. He looks about 10 years older than he did then. He just turned 27, and he looks like he’s 35, easy. He looks like Bruce Campbell’s twin brother in that [...]

Finally, a Big News Day

We’re loaded today, right to it: The only news that could have been worse for the next Wolverine movie would be if Hugh Jackman got pinched for DUI then started popping middle fingers, shouting racial slurs at the officers and [...]

The British are Coming!

There’s a great line in Clue – one of my top 10 all-time comedies — where Howard Hessman is posing as a door-to-door religion peddler. Beatnik: “Armageddon is almost upon us!” Professor Plumb, deadpan: “I got news for ya, it’s already here.” That’s how I felt when I heard the news Sunday about the actor tapped [...]

Where Does South Park Go from Here?

Why Entourage Doesn’t Work in Syndication

It’s rare to tease a blog entry, because usually, I don’t know what I’m writing about until I come into work in the morning and check the news.
