The New Land? More like The Booooo Land. ["I was saying Booo-urns Land."]
I love a good metaphor when it comes to tech industry topics. Honestly, I really do.—JS
The original Man of Steel, Christopher Reeve, is both quadriplegic and dead. You'd still have more fun spending two hours with him than watching this movie.
If the headline isn't enough to convince you to click on this link, I'm not sure how a pithy blurb is going to help.—BK
If you know Penn & Teller, you know Teller never speaks. If you really know them, you know it's always fascinating when he does.—JS
At least it's more civilized than the barbed wire steel cage match they use to decide the winners at the Latin Grammys.
Is it possible to mine an iota of excitement from this year's Oscars? Is Rooney Mara the name of a female person? Can a chat room transcript still make for captivating reading even if nobody in it is impersonating a 15-year-old girl? We aim to answer all these questions with a hearty "Indeed, sir!"
Any Oscar that Warrior doesn't win is an Oscar that goes to the wrong person. Well, except maybe costume design. The guys in Warrior mostly just wore fighting trunks.

What could go wrong with a homemade "I Love V.D." T-shirt?
As someone who enjoys seeing movies in the theatre so much more than at home, I know this man's lament. It is nearly impossible to watch an entire movie without at least one jackass trying to ruin it, and the anxiety that someone might is enough to curtail my viewing by about 90%, much to my dismay.—JS
With 30 Rock now in syndication, it has been interesting to re-watch the early episodes and see how much the show has changed over time, and lately, not for the better. Holmes's analysis speaks to that recent change.—BK
It's difficult to endorse something French, but it's even more difficult to argue with this article.—TG
A sane and reasonable approach to the hubbub over movie piracy. Interesting that nobody mentions iTunes, since it's closer than Netflix to the ideal solution that's being proffered.—JS
