The Degradation of Pulling Digits

"I got it, (I got it), I got it.  For a good time, for a good time call."  - Tommy Tutone, "Jenny" lyrics

What happened?   See, in songs like this classic, you got the phone number right in the lyrics.  You know it:  8-6-7 5-3-0-9.  Boom, right there.  And, in an interesting twist, that number used to be assigned to incoming Freshman at Penn State until it was eventually pulled from the University's list.  True story.  But, little by little... since then, songs have shown the difficulty and...

The Force Really IS Strong With This One

"It's true.  All of it.  The Dark Side, the Jedi.  They're Real."  - Han Solo, The Force Awakens

As of this writing, I have watched the teaser trailer for "Rogue One: A Star War Story" half a dozen times.  I know, I've got issues.  BUT... I was raised on Star Wars.  I was two when the film now called "A New Hope" hit theatres.  I played with the action figures and pretended it was an Ewok in my parent's back yard.  So, I come by my Jedi geek status honestly.  And THAT is why I'm so jazzed...

See... It Really Is NOT Over Until It's Over

"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it." -  Greg Anderson

I'll admit.. I'm not 100% sure who this Greg Anderson is... but he's right on with that quote.  Well, of course, we need to talk about the Uh-Maz-Ing finish to the NCCA Men's Basketball Championship game.  I mean, holy shit, what a shot!  A buzzer beating 3-pointer to not only win the game but the whole shebang!  Wow! Congrats to Villanova.  And, it just goes to show,...

One Should Only Joke About Being Serious

"There are casting directors with lots of imagination, but also some with not as much imagination." -  Max Von Sydow

So, you might be asking, why am I'm writing about casting on this April Fool's Day?  Simple.. and it's no joke.  Have you ever given any thought to how much of a joke certain actors being cast in certain roles really is?  For example, the good folks at ranthollywood.com were nice enough to put together a list of the 20 worst movie casting choices of all time.  The list...

Gee, The Critics Have Always Been So Right Before?!

"The public is the only critic whose opinion is worth anything at all." -  Mark Twain 

Who knew all those years ago the great Mark Twain would inadvertently hit the nail on the head when it came to "Batman Vs. Superman - Dawn of Justice."  Critics panned it.  And it promptly went out and set the record for biggest Easter opening weekend ever.  But really, were you surprised?  Two of the THE biggest comic book heroes EVER in the same movie (with a newly revamped Wonder Woman added to the...
