2 years agoEntertainment / Film : Videogum

[Originally posted on October 17, 2011.] It’s 2011, so the time has FINALLY come for a Top Gun sequel. “We’re ready now.” – America. If Hollywood had tried to make a Top Gun sequel any earlier, even in say 2009, for example, the front page headlines would have screamed TOO SOON! But now it is [...]

2 years agoEntertainment / Film : Videogum

[Originally posted on May 12th, 2009, a faraway time when, Lindsay would like me to point out, the "R" word, which Lindsay would like me to apologize for her use of, was not widely considered offensive.] The Challenge: I had to go on a 3.5 hour bus tour of totally random TV and film locations [...]

How Is Everyone’s Day Today?

2 years agoEntertainment / Film : Videogum

STOMP ON THEIR HANDS! Before I get too far ahead of myself: we didn’t do a “How Was Everyone’s Day Today?” post yesterday because I forgot. Uh-oh. I guess you’re going to have to sue me about it? Send it to Heaven c/o MY GRAVE. (Send the sue to Heaven?) Anyway, there is no rule [...]

2 years agoEntertainment / Film : Videogum

[Originally posted on June 22nd, 2010.] It’s difficult to fully capture the scale of this shit show. And I don’t mean to be a wet blanket, or to harp on a broken record about a dead horse, but Comic-Con IS a shit show. We showed up this morning at what we considered to be a [...]

The World Keeps On Turning, George Clooney Keeps On Pranking

2 years agoEntertainment / Film : Videogum

It’s a tired old human thing (me, I am) to feel somewhat confused after something big happens in your life, and everyone else continues to carry on with their own lives as if you were never their number one priority. Someone close to you dies and you walk outside and see a neighbor washing her [...]

The Hunt For The Worst Movie Of All Time: American Beauty

2 years agoEntertainment / Film : Videogum

[Originally posted on November 15th, 2010.] American Beauty won the 1999 Academy Award for Best Picture. Whoops! This is a pretentious, misguided, ham-fisted film. But the Academy’s decision actually makes more sense if you look at what the film was up against. The other nominees that year were The Cider House Rules, The Green Mile, [...]

2 years agoEntertainment / Film : Videogum

The Petting Zoo began, two years ago or however long it’s been, because Gabe told me I was posting too many animal videos and that I was to be further limited to one animal video post per week. Hahaha. That old dead grump, I miss him and his fair and pretty much correct assessments of [...]

Do You Guys Want To Talk About Sherlock?

2 years agoEntertainment / Film : Videogum

Listen, I hate to interrupt the funeral, but how about let’s open a few windows in here and let some of this death stink out. (Good tip: people LOVE when you say this at actual funerals.) (I would hate to leave you without imparting all of the knowledge that I can, so, that is tip [...]

2 years agoEntertainment / Film : Videogum

[Originally posted on November 23rd, 2010.] Hello, monsters. I know it’s been a while since I last took one for the team. I imagine some of you are disappointed with me, which is valid. I feel ashamed about it. But, please try to understand that I do have a life outside of Videogum. And sometimes [...]

Eventually The World Will Be Covered In Ash And Silence

2 years agoEntertainment / Film : Videogum

[Originally posted on September 17, 2010.] There used to be a restaurant in my neighborhood that I would go to a lot. One of my fondest New York memories is of taking a cab from the airport late at night and going straight to the restaurant with my suitcase and eating a late night dinner [...]

Yes, We Are Going To Watch “MORE SAND!” At Least One More Time

2 years agoEntertainment / Film : Videogum

Very often when I would tell people what I do for a living, they would pause and say something like, “Man. Watching viral videos all day? That’s the best job ever!” Or something. Because generally people are nice and you literally have to fill conversation somehow, because standing and staring blankly at someone after they [...]

2 years agoEntertainment / Film : Videogum

[Originally posted on January 13th, 2011.] Look, at the end of the day it’s OK that Gwyneth Paltrow hires a bunch of college freshmen to write a lifestyle newsletter under her name about platinum mid-century bathroom fixtures. It’s not actually HURTING anyone. But does she have to be SUCH. A FUCKING. LIAR about it? The [...]
