Oscar Picks, and Charlie Sheen is Untouchable

Before we get to Oscar picks: Apparently all it takes to get me interested in this Charlie Sheen thing is him standing over the CBS studios with an atomic bomb in his back pocket laughing manically while he thinks about dropping — and then does. For the last couple months, I couldn’t have cared less about […]

There’s This Movie Coming Out, Not Sure If You Heard About It, Stars Downey Jr. …

I really wanted to do the second part of the State of the TV post today, but I’ve accumulated so much news over the last couple days — news you may have missed — that I just can’t avoid going straight links today. Did you know Due Date starts this weekend? No, really, it does! […]
