Random Links to Get You Through Your Day (If You’re Not at the Die Hard Marathon)

Nope, I’m not at the Die Hard marathon over at Cinemark today. Thanks so much for bringing it up! Links: Is anyone else starting to get the feeling the Justice League movie is freaking doomed? The starts and stops have been going on since the 80s, then the writers strike, and now? When it should [...]

Kathryn Bigelow Agrees with Me. Or Me with Her. Or Something.

Wednesday links, because I haven’t done that in a while, sorry: I feel a good bit vindicated. After I left Zero Dark Thirty with my wife on Sunday, she was doing most of the talking because she LOVED it. After a while I said, “I think it was a pretty harsh commentary on women in [...]

Let’s All Stop the “Bond is Back” Stuff. Please. Pretty Please.

Short one today, but just remember to thank a veteran: You know what the worst play on words is that we’ve heard about 8 gazillion times for the last week? “Bond is back!” Two reasons: 1. It’s corny and overplayed. The quote whores of movie reviewers (the people who write things in their review purposely [...]

Scatterbrained Links

After writing this for an hour or so, I realized I’m especially cynical and critical and nasty today. Just be aware of that as you read … In today’s good riddance to bad rubbish news – The Killing has finally, mercifully been killed. But then the news gets worse, as it’s being shopped around to another [...]

New Dark Knight Trailer, the Return of Daria and Another New Trailer That Might Interest You

Felt like posting a lot of video today, enjoy. Sorry if it takes a while to load on your phone. Dammit, MTV! That’s dirty pool! After bringing back new episodes of Beavis and Butthead last year, you shouldn’t put out press releases saying how you’re bringing back Daria. People immediately assume you’re making new episodes [...]

The Most Disappointing TV, Ever

(This is an extended preview to the PopRox column in the Sunday Pocono Record.) Every, single, solitary time I see these ads for The Killing, it reminds me of just how angry the show made me last year. That puts me in a bad mood and in need of some purging, so here are five of [...]

Modern Family Swearing, LL Rising, Cougar Town Returning and More

Normally, I’d take any opportunity to stick it to the Hollywood studio machine. So under normal circumstances, this Internet blackout thing would be right up my alley. But a couple of things intervened: 1. Because of my schedule (took a four-day weekend for my nephew’s first birthday in Virginia Beach, I’m not apologizing for that), I haven’t put [...]

Last Chance for KISS Tickets!!!

(SADOWSKI NOTE: Oops! The deadline for KISS ticket entries is actually Thursday. Sorry for the confusion. I changed it in the blog post. My bad.) The immortal Stanley Spadowski is my inspiration today. “You’ve waited til the last minute … well, it’s the LAST MINUTE!!!” Then he twirled his mop around and fell on a [...]
