I apologize for the lack of posts recently; it’s been a crazy fall with lots of work and lots of travel. Here’s some new writings from this month:
At EntertainmentTell, I’ve got movie reviews of “12 Years a Slave,” “All is Lost,” “Captain Phillips,” “Gravity,” “The Fifth Estate,” and more, which you can find at my Rotten Tomatoes page. I’m also newly a member of the Online Film Critics Society,
Also recently from the site: A shot at CNN’s plans to rip off The Daily Show; an essay about this year’s How I Met Your Mother season; some making fun of Maureen Dowd; and some investigation into which baseball team Bryan Cranston roots for.
For Philadelphia magazine, I wrote about Ruben Amaro’s stathead hiring plans, that awesome new commercial for the Eagles and that weird trucker protest in DC. Last month marked the end of my time as a weekly columnist there, but I may pop up occasionally in the future.
And last and best, here’s the latest blog post from Noah and Jonah covering, among other events, the wedding of their Aunt Amy and Uncle Jason.
At EntertainmentTell, I reviewed “The Great Gatsby.”
For GadgetTell, I write about a new study on airline passengers leaving their phones are.
And at Philly Post, I wrote about Al Gore being “Romney-rich.”
I had quite a prolific week of new writings.
For the Philly Post, I wrote about the FCC’s correct decision to not pursue fines after David Ortiz cursed on the air before the first post-bombing Red Sox game.
At EntertainmentTell, a ton of stuff: My essay on the Coexist sticker flap- with an Adam Carolla angle to fit the Entertainment part of the site, is here.
I also reviewed Michael Bay’s odious new movie “Pain & Gain,” as well as the documentary “Koch,” and I interviewed the director of the latter film (not, thankfully, the former.)
In addition, I wrote about the renewal of Parenthood, a particularly funny old Facts of Life clip, and the arrival of the complete Saturday Night Live archive on Yahoo.
Thanks for reading, everyone!
Last week I reviewed two different “mind-bender”-type movies, “Trance” and “To the Wonder.” I also wrote about a local professor who is putting a playable version of Pong on the side of a building, and wrote an essay about just how weird “Wayne’s World” was.
Quite a few writings from this week, including:
- I wrote about the effort to revive the Roxy and Boyd theaters in the Philly Post this week.
At EntertainmentTell, I reviewed “Oz: The Great and Powerful” and “Jack the Giant Slayer,” and wrote about the Ashley Judd boobs article.
I review two movies I didn’t particularly like- “Identity Thief” and “Side Effects”- at EntertainmentTell. I should have one more review up tomorrow.
