8 months ago

It's not often that I'm able to sneak away and see a film by myself. These days, a large proportion of my theater-going choices are largely dictated by my young children. But yesterday, I actually had a few hours and a big choice to make.

Doctor Strange or Arrival?

Monday Mixer: The 'Doctor' is in

8 months ago

What a Strange weekend it was and it had nothing to do with the election that is set to take place this week. I've been pretty bullish on Marvel films over the years, but I've also cautioned that they are setting themselves up for a great fall.

Monday Mixer: 'Deadpool' gets even filthier in new red-band trailer

2 years ago

This is turning out to be the perfect storm of box office performance that we might never see again in our lifetime. It's not often that Christmas and New Year's both fall on Fridays. Well yeah, they would both fall on Friday in the same year, but with the whole...

One fortunate side effect of having two DVRs fried is that you suddenly find yourself with plenty of free time. You are no longer chasing the dragon trying to watch enough shows each night to make room on the DVR for the next day's shows.
