Its Title is Truly Truth in Advertising

"There's nothing wrong with being shallow as long as you're insightful about it." -  Dennis Miller

Oh boy, here we go again.  Sony Pictures has just rolled out the latest trailer for the, ahem, summer "thriller" "The Shallows."  But, before I leap upon the soapbox and proceed to shred this film, I will start positive.   If you're a fan of "Sharknado," it looks like you'll love "The Shallows."   There, happy?   Now, let there be blood in the water and we may need a bigger blog.


This is Where I Say, "I Told You So"

"It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation." -  Herman Melville

The headline from The Hollywood Reporter says it all - 'Ghostbusters' Is the Most Disliked Movie Trailer in YouTube History.   *Sigh*  When your unnecessary attempt to remake a classic ranks up there with the loathing reserved for the likes of "The Biebs," you know your up shit's creek.  But, if you're a regular reader of this blog (and I thank you if you are!) you know...

"A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers." -  Plato

BUT... Plato was never offered a pile of money from Good Morning America.  That's why Michael Strahan said "Adios!" to Live with Kelly and Michael.  So.. let's break this all down, shall we?   First off, you can't fault Strahan for taking the B.B.D.  (bigger, better deal).  You'd take it, too believe me.  But it's the how this all went down that remains the turd in the daytime punch bowl.  If you are leaving your co-worker...

Seriously Cutting Off Your Nose to Spite Your Face

"Life is Hard; It's harder when you're stupid." - John Wayne

Marion is oh so correct.  And, yes, that's the Duke's REAL first name.  I've been saving that quote for when the time was just right.  And it seems that moment has arrived.  Today, The Hollywood Reporter wrote that Kate Beckett - a.k.a. Stana Katic of Castle is being cut from the series.  Why?  Three guesses.  M-O-N-E-Y.  More specifically, THR says the brain-trust at ABC made the move for "financial reasons."  BUT... Castle has...
