If it's crap ... We'll tell you
It makes me laugh oh-so-very-hard that Michael Bay fans consider his 2005 film "The Island" to be among his worst. Why? Because it so clearly is among is best. At least from where I'm sitting. I…Continue
From "The Daily Show" to "The Office" to R-rated comedies on the big screen, Ed Helms continues to pilot his career closely behind Steve…Continue
This 1954 Robert Aldrich helmed western is the stuff that laid the ground for the darker, more amoral stories to come in the later decades from directors like Sam Peckinpah and…Continue
As much fun as I've had over the past few weeks (first, a family reunion for my father's birthday and then, of course, Spill Dot Con), I was relieved for it all to be over. With an audible sigh of relief, I retreated into my darkened bedroom and came out only for the inescapable realities of my job (Transformers 3, for instance...there is no God).

After half a year of waiting, I guess I can finally come to terms with the fact that it looks like we're never going to do a 'Top Ten' list for 2010. This makes me sad, because I really love recording those episodes. Perhaps next year we'll be right back on track. So, for the edification of the fans who STILL keep asking (not that I blame you), here's the lists of Best and Worst for 2010, from my perspective at least.
What's important to keep in mind here is that I might…Continue
SUPERMAN ANTHOLOGY (Blu-Ray)
I'm as subject to overwhelming floods of emotion due to nostalgic attachment as the next guy, and what does it for me is often the all-too familiar leitmotifs in movie and television show themes. Of all of…
A lot of great stuff comes out this week, especially on Blu, and I'm sure that I'll freak some folks out by my selection this week for the best of the best, but I gotta go with my heart on this one...
Ok, so check this out: Mickey Rourke plays Nate, a formerly somewhat well known jazz musician, now beaten down by life, booze, and bad luck. Getting on the bad side of a…Continue
Back in the early nineties, when the legal thriller held sway and John Grisham ruled the earth, the 1993 release of a theatrical version of Grisham's first blockbuster success novel, starring a…Continue
I absolutely agree with the folks out there who said of Nicolas Cage's 2011 b-action film "Drive Angry" that it was what the "Ghost Rider" film should have been. Or, at…Continue
