Tuesday’s Daily Dump (1/19/11)

Doodily doo...nothing to see here today...no news that would send shockwaves across the interwebs, wrinkling the brains and uncorking the loins of nerds or anything...squiddy squoo...I'll just sit here twiddling my HOLY ANNOUNCEMENT (that isn't the 10 commandments), BATMAN!!! We bagged ourselves a kitty!

Cutting Room for January 19

I’m not trying to tell you how to live your life. Well, at least not all of it. I just want to tell you how to live your life on a few specific days. So grab a pen and get to stuffin’ your schedule.

  • By now you’re all kinds of aware that the Omaha Film Festival (omahafilmfestival.org) runs March 2-6 at the Great Escape Stadium 16 Theatre, right? That’s cool, but why wait for March when...

Flaming Pants, Burning Loins

I Love You Philip Morris

Jim Carrey has no damn luck.

I Love You Philip Morris is a darkly comic, gay Catch Me If You Can, the central role in which requires rapid fluctuation from slapstick pratfalls to wrestling with AIDS. It’s exactly the type of part that scores formerly big-time actors their marquee award nomination. If the film weren’t tonally disjointed, had more genuine romance and didn’t use a...

Slight Sting

The Green Hornet

There should be no doubt that director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) is a genius; unfortunately, his 3D action/comedy spectacle, The Green Hornet, isn’t. It’s really more of a by-the-book bro-mantic comedy at heart, which is no surprise since it was written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Superbad). Still, it is an interesting step taken by an interesting director and...

DVD Discovery: Lie Space

DVD Discovery: Catfish

Although 2010 won’t go down as The Greatest Year of Filmmaking Ever, it is becoming more and more notable as The Year that Documentaries Blew Our Minds. The latest evidence supporting this assertion is Catfish, a compelling and timely documentary that is nearly impossible to describe without spoiling it for everyone.

Freshly released on DVD, Catfish tells the story of a young New York City...

Monday’s Daily Dump (1/18/11)

January is the cruelest month, no matter what Eliot said. Seriously, it's cold as blue balls out there, there's not enough football to keep us distracted, the movies largely suck, and there's no news of note really. It's a stupid, frosty month that only exists because my wife's birthday is in it. If it weren't for that, I'd have capped January in the face years ago. Let's take a look at the...

Box Office Results for the weekend of January 14

There was a glitch in my HTML coding, which sounds like a nerdy way of saying I had diarrhea or something. But what really happened is that I forgot to slash or unslash inside a carrot and for some reason it ate all of my numbers associated with my predictions on Friday. Not that anybody NOTICED OR TOLD ME OR ANYTHING! Jeez, it's like a guy whose zipper was so unzipped you could see all of...
