Don doesn’t think Jon is talking about Frank’s giant fake head, but instead about his brilliance, to which Don nods…

The Tuesday Blues

THE TUESDAY BLUES 12/02/14     DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Much has been said about the horrible hell that was the 2014 summer movie season. I think that’s a little short-sighted.

HAPPY 3 YEARS OF POPFILTERING!

While I write this update, I’m drinking a Bloody Mary, and doing so for a couple of reasons: First off, because it’s Saturday. That means it’s totally okay for anyone to start drinking whenever they feel like it, regardless of what “time” it is or how many “families” with “kids” are running around to say…

Kerri Battles the AFI’s Top 100: #99 – Toy Story

It was advertised as such and certainly aimed towards that demographic. Still, I’ve undertaken a daunting challenge and I…
