Fearless, Flawless Box Office Predictions - 12/3/2010

Greetings to blog-thusiasts young and old, new and experienced, attractive and...oh who am I kidding, you're all beautiful to me. This is how we wrap things up for the week: Every Friday I will make box office predictions consisting of the top 5 films (and a wildcard that may make it in). Then, on Monday, I rank myself using a formula that is way to boring for me to explain given how arbitrary...

PTA gets his pinch on

Happy Friday to ya, folks. Nothing really big percolating this week, so I thought I'd hit you with a goodie that will make at least a few people I know smile ear to ear. Recently, my personal pick for most brilliant writer/director currently above ground, Paul Thomas Anderson (or PTA as his buddies call him...because of his initials, not because he's good at conversations betwixt instructor and...

Ryan’s Junk Drawer for December 2

With great junk, comes great responsibility - "Better Off Ted"

I know what you're thinking so I'll just say it for you: You have been in desperate need of my junk ever since I took my junk away from you.

Things You Should Buy Me (Volume 57)

Too long have I gone without demanding things!

Two Truths and a Lie

Chickity check it out, y'all. This is me blogging two days in a row!

And we kick today in the short pants with a little game they used to play as an ice breaker at functions where people don't know each other well...like prison holding cells. It's called "Two Truths and a Lie," and today's celebrity host is none other than Chris "I may have made the best movie of the year but now people are...

Under the Influence

Love and Other Drugs

As its title states, love is just one of many brain-altering ingredients present in director Edward Zwick’s Love and Other Drugs. The film is set in the world of pharmaceutical sales in the mid-’90s, so besides a little pot and plenty of beer, we’re also among Prozac, Zoloft and the debut of Viagra.

Burn Noticed

Fair Game

Forget Congressional censure and domestic or international courts of law, the Bush administration will apparently burn for their sins beneath the withering lights of largely ignored, star-driven movies. Score one for justice! If we can’t expect the guy who directed Swingers (Doug Liman) to preserve our democracy, who will stand as the last defender of this once great republic?

As Matt...
