Friday Funnies

Sorry Sean Hannity fans--no clips of Obama's lameass gutter ball. Actually the joke here is on my wife. Last week the DVD of No Country for Old Men dropped into Netflix. On April 8, There Will Be Blood (my fav), and on April 22...Hurray! CLOVERFIELD! Hours and hours of dark vexation, and me cackling at the horror. Pray for my family as I indulge myself!

COMING NEXT WEEK...interviews with authors Mat Johnson and Gary Phillips, and check out the lovely endorsement of The Darker Mask from Tom Fontana. (Note the pub date's been moved up to July, in time for Comic Con)

"This collection of smart and raw stories out marvels Marvel and makes me want to strip down to my inner tights. “The Darker Mask” cuts superhero mythology to the bone; leaving neither the characters nor the reader invulnerable to its mesmerizing power."
--Tom Fontana, Emmy-winning Writer/Producer of HBO's "Oz," NBC's "Homicide: Life on the Street," and NBC's new hit "The Philanthropist."


Have a great weekend...

You are a hypocrit. You attack people for having bad taste yet you have your own "escapist" entertainment.

Pat,
Get a life! Everyone has some form of escapist entertainment, and Nat is entitled to his opinions. One of those movies won an Oscar, one was nominated and one is purely just for fun. Keep it light. Did you wake up on the wrong side of he rock this morning?

Cloverfield was hard to watch. My boyfriend and I are monster fanatics but the jerky camera made me sick. Home viewing might be better, but I don't want to daughter to peek in on it.

And, I note, Grindhouse is playing on one of the pay cable channels (forget which one). Classic line: "White meat and dark meat. All will be carved."

I saw Grindhouse on DVD but they left off the Thanksgiving phony trailer. So they are showing that TV? My husband was livid.
