Streaming Into the Future
Screenwriter John August recently spoke about the costs of HBO. By recently I mean April 9th. He is primarily addressing the costs of HBO* and premium channels. John (ahhh yes, as if I know him from reading his blog) makes the following comment: Consumers have an artificially low expectation of … Continue Reading Streaming Into the Future
HBO has debuted a new series called Girls from Lena Dunham and Judd Apatow. So far, the show seems to be full of awkward humor and fairly upfront sex scenes. I happen to feel that much of the time, this is a lazy grab for attention via controversy. Girls feels … Continue Reading GIRLS! Incognito!

Thanks GQ For Protecting Us From What Jennifer Lawrence REALLY Looks Like!
Just In Time For 1992!
Warner Brothers announced a new Director for the planned Lobo movie. Yes, they are planning a Lobo movie. Really! Lobo, for the unaware, is a character used specifically to parody the over the top violence in 90’s comics like Wolverine and the Punisher. H was reated before that, but was … Continue Reading Just In Time For 1992!
Was yesterday. Kids got up early, ran down the stairs, sat around the earth day tree. Everyone loves the earth day tree…covered in lights (never actually lit or plugged in to preserve energy) and decorated with paper ribbons, everyone starts giving gifts tha-what? You didn’t do that? Me either. I … Continue Reading Earth Day

Thank you, Jon Stewart.
You Found the Wrong Cabin
Okay. This post is going to be non-stop spoilers. If you have not seen The Cabin In the Woods and plan to? You should skip reading this. The actual focus is a terrible review of the film. Read more after the jump…

Another Franchise Revived
Oh…boy. They are working on Home Alone 5. Maybe they can do something tippy like they did with the 5th Final Destination film.
When does Corey Booker run for President?! And while I am glad Obama and everyone is standing up for Ann Romney…can Republicans really believe Hilary Rosen’s comments are in the same league as personhood amendments, forcing women to get ultrasounds, allowing doctors to lie to their patients(there is a terrific … Continue Reading Seriously Now…

Republicans: It’s All About Respect for the Judicial Branch
So, when President Barack Obama said the following, I confess I was a little shocked: “I don’t know if there is a cause-and-effect connection, but we have seen some recent episodes of courthouse violence in this country…And I wonder whether there may be some connection between the perception in some … Continue Reading Republicans: It’s All About Respect for the Judicial Branch
Blind Faith: Daredevil (2003)
I find those shows about Ghost Hunters amusing. Half the cable networks-including Animal Planet has them. Their overly dramatic reveals of nothing but camera lens flares and static sounds that they pass off as evidence. Of all the ideas for a found footage film, this is the greatest setup ever. … Continue Reading Promising Encounters
