(SPOILER ALERT: tread carefully if you don’t want to know details about the movie) The movie theater is a sacred temple. That’s how I’ve always viewed it, because I learned very early on that one goes to the movie to sit and enjoy the visual splendor on the screen, not to have a play date… Read More Adventures in Parenting: The Girls See Pete’s Dragon At The Theater
At this point, there is no way the people in charge of the DC movie universe can’t be in a state of panic. And they should be. Because “Suicide Squad” is yet another massive misfire for Warner Bros. Worse than “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Heck, it’s a mess on par with “Green Lantern.“… Read More Suicide Squad Is A Tremendous Disappointment

If you’ve… Read More “Riverdale” Is Not Your Father’s Archie

Talent booking questions, production issues, last-minute logistical concerns, they all pop up in that day or two before one heads west to the biggest pop culture event on… Read More Adventures In Parenting – My Shopkins Comic Con Experience
Amidst all the DC and Marvel superhero movie news, several films that made good first impressions at the San Diego Comic Con have kind of been lost in the shuffle. I’m here to perform a public service and put one of those movies back on your radar. Because “Kong: Skull Island” looks absolutely bonkers, in… Read More #SDCC – First Look At “Kong: Skull Island”
The big reveal out of #SDCC2016 on Friday was the shocker that the upcoming horror movie “The Woods” is actually a top-secret sequel to the groundbreaking horror movie “The Blair Witch Project.” Lionsgate revealed the surprise as it prepared to screen the film in San Diego Friday night. It’s rather remarkable in this day and… Read More #SDCC – The Woods is actually … a Sequel to The Blair Witch Project!
I had the pleasure of appearing on the CW6 San Diego morning show today to help kick off Comic Con 2016. I showed off a few Convention exclusives that fans and collectors will be dying to get their hands on. The Game of Thrones Night King Silver Edition bust in particular, will be hard to… Read More #SDCC2016 – Chasing The Collectibles
