So, is anyone else out there watching Rubiconon AMC? I've been with it from the beginning earlier this summer and still can't quite figure out how I feel about it. On the one hand, it's been interesting enough to keep... Continue reading

Ah, Milla. Does anyone remember the "Friends" episode where they (or at least Ross, I think) had a list of five celebrities that he was allowed to cheat with if the opportunity arose? Miss Jovovich has long been on my list of five.

Over at Kotaku, blogger Mike Fahey tells us that if he had to pick one man to follow him around, narrating everything he did, it would be John Rhys-Davies. I think that's a strong choice, and one that might pop... Continue reading

OK, so what would you get if you got out your movie-blender, threw in a lump of Kill Bill, a cup of Indiana Jones (but with pre-WWII-era Imperial Japanese troops instead of Nazis), a huge dollop of classic spaghetti westerns... Continue reading

Despite the fact that I'm whiter than anyone on the planet (with the possible exception of George Will), I've always had a soft spot for the classic "Blaxploitation" films of the early '70s. Shaft, Super Fly, Black Caesar...love 'em all.... Continue reading

My neighborhood is so boring. I'm not aware of anyone locally who is actively trying to incorporate "the superhero archetype into daily life." Perhaps you are more fortunate than I and have benefited from the crime-fighting prowess of any of... Continue reading

If you love funk and North Korean propaganda films (and really, who doesn't?) then you simply have to watch this YouTube clip Michael Rubin linked to over at The Corner. It's oddly...entrancing. Continue reading

At the acknowledged risk of pushing my already-high YR nation geek-rating through the roof, I will tell you that I'm having difficulty figuring out how to keep my order from these guys to a reasonable level. I mean, do I... Continue reading

Though the Lost finale is slowly fading from my memory, the scars remain, and thus I was drawn to this Vulture report on the five meanest tweets that series co-creator Damon Lindelof says he received after the episode aired. Apparently... Continue reading

WTF Wednesday is really BATMAN's thing, but just take a look at the headline below and try to tell me this doesn't qualify: Monkeys hate flying squirrels, report monkey-annoyance experts. (H/T Deadspin) Continue reading

I stopped watching CBS' Survivor after the first of its "All-Star" seasons as I found the show getting a bit stale and predictable. Though I've, at times, been tempted to tune back in, I've always resisted the urge....until now. ESPN... Continue reading

There are, of course, two huge national events that take place in this country every July. We just celebrated the first of these, and I sincerely hope all of you had a happy and safe Fourth of July. We’ll celebrate... Continue reading

Mere days until July 4th and we're talking about soccer...Feh! (OK, so I'm actually planning on watching some Germany-Argentina...)

Those who like food and good TV watch Top Chef. Those who like food and trashy, cheesy TV watch Hell's Kitchen. Those who like food and any TV (like me) end up somewhat portly (also like me), but I digress.... Continue reading

Do you ever wonder just why it is you seem drawn to certain movies, television shows, music, books, etc.? I suppose some of it is genetic, but it seems to me that the lion's share depends on what we happened... Continue reading

Over at Foreign Policy, Daniel Drezner has an essay (and soon-to-be-released book) on the application of current international relations theory to a world-wide zombie invasion...seriously. (H/T The Volokh Conspiracy) Continue reading

Given my own experiences in the world of family pet photography, count me among those excited by the prospects of AwkwardFamilyPetPhotos.com, from the people that brought us AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com. I believe our own LarryK has made a submission... Continue reading

As I've said here before, I'm not much for soccer, but over the weekend I did engage in my quadrennial flirtation with "the beautiful game" by catching parts of a few World Cup matches. As usual, I quickly reaffirmed that... Continue reading

Early word from reviewers I trust actually are pretty high on the movie, so come DVD release time I'll be checking it out. On a related note, the local ABC affiliate will be visiting the school where I'm taking Tae Kwon Do as a tie-in with the movie. My head hurts. To review - they are visiting a Tae Kwon Do school as a tie-in with a movie called the "Karate Kid" in which the kid is actually learning Kung Fu. (Sigh.)

I'm not much for soccer, but I remember being in Germany during 2002's Cup when some African country (can't remember which) pulled a huge upset. It was the lead story on BBC and CNN International all day and they both used the same footage of people celebrating in the streets. Rather inexplicably much of the celebration seemed to involve a guy holding a chicken above his head while riding around on the back of a motorcycle.

Is Glee this century's Twin Peaks? Salon's Matt Zoller Seitz says that he thinks so in what is, beyond that provocative hook, a very good essay on what makes Glee so good. He certainly gets full marks for making the... Continue reading
