Razzies aim typically low

Posted by · 5:15 am · January 24th, 2011

The Golden Raspberry (aka Razzie) Awards irritate me on an annual basis, largely because they’re such a joyless, unimaginative and, worst of all, cowardly execution of a neat idea: singling out the worst cinematic achievements of the year for a bit of a ribbing. Except they aren’t about genuinely failed artistry nearly as much as […]

Listen to Cee Lo Green’s ‘What Part of Forever’ from ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’

Posted by · 8:24 am · December 6th, 2010

Can you tell I’m grasping at straws with this category yet?  I’m planning on writing up this year’s Best Original Song category in Thursday’s Tech Support column and I thought I’d squeeze a few more contenders in this week, but there’s not a lot to choose from. Cee-Lo Green’s “What Part of Forever” from “The […]

FRIDAY FORECAST: I ain’t got time to bleed

Posted by · 4:27 pm · July 9th, 2010

*All historical figures cited are adjusted to today’s dollars. Summer keeps puttering along and based on the reaction to Kris’s multiple posts on the subject, we’re all just biding our time until “Inception” comes out.

*All historical figures cited are adjusted to today’s dollars. Happy Independence Day everyone! I trust you ate some grilled meat, camped out on a beach for the day and saw some fireworks.

FRIDAY FORECAST: Vampires and Shyamalan suck

Posted by · 3:02 pm · July 2nd, 2010

*All historical figures cited are adjusted to today’s dollars. Are you guys seeing this Uruguay-Ghana game? Unbelievable finish. But it’s Independence Day weekend and we are supposed to be talking about all things American. Like sissy vampires and casting obviously foreign parts movies with good old white actors! The weekend will go long with most […]
