Spending this New Years Eve as I hope to spend all of 2012 -- watching movies, writing reviews (and trying to figure out how to get paid a living wage for doing those two things).

But if I get bored with all that by midnight, I'm going to booze up and set things on fire in the backyard.

Tonight is my last theatrical screening of the year, but I just entered the first one of 2012 into the datebook. Onward.

Sometimes I'm reminded how different my life is from all my married friends'. A new mom on my feed posted "We have a crawler!" and my first thought was, "Zombie?"

My second thought was, "Millipede?"

I MELT WITH YOU is a whole lot more fun if you imagine it starring the cast of GROWN UPS.

Jeez, Interwebs, settle down... A quarter of the way into I MELT WITH YOU I go to look up the soundtrack and instead get the whole spoilerific plot spelled out for me.

Ah, Iowa. Where "I can't drive 55" means, "I just feel more comfortable going 45."

The Great Modern Existential Dilemma: We couldn't take our smart phones to BREAKING DAWN tonight, so I had no way of posting status updates about the frustrations of being without my smart phone.

I haven't mentioned this here on Google+ yet, but many of you heard the news over on Facebook and Twitter:

I am no longer working for Redbox/Redblog and going forward am available for all your film reviews, news and interview needs.

I'm green-lighting two WAR HORSE sequels:
Combat Cow (set during the Civil War) and Battle Pig (set in outer space during the Future Space Wars)

I didn't want to be a total Grinchy Scrooge before, but now I can safely come out and admit it: I liked THE MUPPETS a lot, but didn't LOVE it.

I think Kum & Go still have some hot deals on Harley Davidson lighters.

Just spent an hour taking apart, adjusting, and re-calibrating my Mom's treadclimber exercise machine. It was the most a) manly, and b) fitness-related thing I've done all year.
