We tell funny stories all the time without believing them. (Does anybody really think that a priest, a rabbi and a chicken walked into a bar?) I believe it matters in the case of urban legend names because they’re not merely humor…and they’re not random. They exist in a complex social setting, and they serve a subtle and consequential purpose. They are proxies for talking about...

RED trailer →
RED has a superb cast: Anything with Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirrin and John Malkovich *can’t* be all bad. So, come October 15th, I’ll do my best to get to it. (Funds permitting.) But. One thing I noted from the trailer is the third example of something that’s apparently well on its way to becoming an action movie trope: The big blow-‘em-up confrontation scene...

Steampunk, retro or closet Luddite? Here’s how to marry old and new technology in an intriguing and functional way.
No Ordinary Family stars Michael Chiklis (whom I’ve loved ever since “The Commish”). It looks awesome, kinda “Heroes” meets “The Incredibles” meets “The Fantastic Four”—-which, considering it’s Chiklis, is 100% appropriate. And oh yeah—-his character’s a cop, although from what I’ve seen, a much *nicer* one than in...

God, I love Robert Rodriguez. And this? Is going to be amazing. RR is one of the Overlords of Action, and the casting is totally “Holy crap!”. Yes, there are the usual suspects in a RR film: Trejo and Cheech (and Alba, oh my!), as well as DeNiro, Billy Bob Thornton and—-Lindsay Lohan?! Oh, and Steven Segal as some kind of ninja. If *that* doesn’t boggle the mind,...
