Trailer Watch: Ender’s Game

For every dollar I spend going to see Ender’s Game, I vow to spend twice as much in a donation to a gay rights group. Won’t you join me?

A reflection on “Weeds.”

After watching the last season of “Weeds,” I felt it necessary to draft this letter to its creator, Jenji Kohan: Dear Jenji, Here’s the thing. We started out friends…good friends. I had a thing for your show. Your creation (that of a suburban mom who takes up selling pot to support her family after her […]

Graphically Speaking: A few questions with R.L. Stine

Can you believe “Goosebumps” started 20 years ago? R.L. Stine’s seminal children’s book series is now older than the target age of its readers. Recently, I had the chance to ask Stine 2 questions. It was tough deciding what to ask him, once I realized it would be a nightmare to ship ALL of my […]

Graphically Speaking: An Interview with Uncle Yo

The New York Comic Con is always a gargantuan event. Movie stars, writers, artists, and costumed fans overrun the Jacob Javits Center every year. It’s easy to get lost in the sights and sounds, but if you search for some lesser-known professionals, it can be more rewarding than waiting 3 hours in line for “The […]

Graphically Speaking: An Interview with Jane Espenson

At this year’s New York Comic Con, I was lucky enough to interview prolific television writer Jane Espenson. Jane has had a long career having written on shows such as “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Dinosaurs,” “Game of Thrones,” and “Battlestar Galactica” and that’s still just a drop in the bucket. She is widely recognized […]

Graphically Speaking: Depressing Pixar sequels

Pixar movies have become a summer tradition. While most of them are undisputed masterpieces, I found their latest offering, Brave, to be…crap-tacular. It started out as a spirited adventure with a plucky heroine, then quickly became “My Mother, the Bear.” Yeah, that’s a minor spoiler, but the movie was such a letdown, I don’t even […]

Your Favorite Cartoons! If they sucked!

Well, it looks like the Michael Bay-produced “Ninja Turtles” reboot (is there a more horrifying way to start a sentence?) has hit a dead end in the development stage. It’s not much of a surprise considering the purported change in the turtles’ origins. I guess Bay never watched the insanely-popular 80’s cartoon, which repeated the […]

Trailer Watch: Robot and Frank

Fresh off being a hit at Sundance, we have the first trailer for what appears to be the extremely heartwarming and entertaining Robot and Frank. The film won the Alfred P. Sloan prize at Sundance and the odd-couple relationship in the film looks like the best human-robot friendship since Moon. While the ‘one last job’ […]

Graphically Speaking: “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” review

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance Directed by: Mark Neveldine & Brian Taylor Starring: Nicolas Cage, Idris Elba, Ciaran Hinds Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence, some disturbing images, and language. I like Nicolas Cage. I do. He’s become a bit of a punchline in recent years, no thanks to poor choices (in […]
