The sequel to ‘Independence Day’ brings back the cheese

The sequel to ‘Independence Day’ brings back the cheese

When you think of big and dumb but often entertaining movie-making the last 20 years you might think of Michael Bay, but you might also think of Roland Emmerich. Whether it’s 2012, The Day After Tomorrow or what have you, Emmerich has done a pretty good job giving us disaster movies that may not always [...]

Tracking the 2016 NBA Draft plus wheeling and dealing

Tracking the 2016 NBA Draft plus wheeling and dealing

The draft is now concluded. Our thoughts from last night are below. Our thoughts this morning? Teams were eager to draft international prospects in the first round, guys that don’t have to come play in the NBA right away. In a mediocre-at-best draft, that option was more palatable for a lot of teams than wasting [...]

Letter to the Editor: Obama has kept us as safe as Bush

Letter to the Editor: Obama has kept us as safe as Bush

The Orlando shooting was a terrible tragedy, as 49 people lost their lives when Omar Mateen began shooting up the Pulse nightclub last week. As horrible as the event was, it was bound to happen at some point. The Internet has been a wonderful technological breakthrough for mankind. While bringing people together, however, it has also brought [...]

City of Cleveland, Dustin Johnson losers no more

City of Cleveland, Dustin Johnson losers no more

Congrats to Dustin Johnson, who won the U.S. Open by three strokes for his first golf major. Johnson is a very talented young golfer who has been somewhat overshadowed by guys like Jordan Spieth and Jason Day. Well, part of that is Johnson’s fault. Just last year we were writing about him choking away the [...]

Vin Scully roasts socialism while calling a Dodger game

Vin Scully roasts socialism while calling a Dodger game

You don’t hear a whole lot about the plight of Venezuela in the mainstream media these days. That’s because the socialist country has been plunged into utter chaos the past few years. There are hours-long lines to enter supermarkets and fights break out among citizens to buy the meager portions of food available. Power blackouts [...]

‘Finding Dory’ isn’t Pixar’s best, but it doesn’t have to be

‘Finding Dory’ isn’t Pixar’s best, but it doesn’t have to be

It has been 13 years since Finding Nemo came out, and if you had a kid in his/her single digits back then you’ve definitely seen the movie. Like, 100 times seen the movie. Going to high school basketball games now you can even hear kids in the stands alternating shouting “mine” to mimic the seagulls [...]

In Phily, the Eagles foolishly spend like drunken sailors

In Phily, the Eagles foolishly spend like drunken sailors

It was always appropriate the Redskins overspent much of the last two decades—after all, that’s what Washington D.C. and our government is supposed to do. Now the Eagles, who reside in a city that was also once capital of our great nation, are going down that same road. It didn’t work for the Redskins and [...]

Political points don’t have to be made right after Orlando

Political points don’t have to be made right after Orlando

Could people just wait until the facts come in to jump to conclusions about what the Orlando shooting means or says about us as a society? Of course they can’t! Ever! God, it’s difficult enough to jump to conclusions almost a week later after an event such as this, much less a couple hours. At least now [...]

‘Popstar’ never stops never stopping being pretty funny

‘Popstar’ never stops never stopping being pretty funny

There’s a lot of recycled premises this week at the movies, like most weeks, but overall things came out surprisingly well with the three new releases. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is kind of fun and certainly could have been a lot worse. Me Before You is a completely by-the-book romance, but [...]

Predictions around the web for Warriors vs. Cavaliers

Predictions around the web for Warriors vs. Cavaliers

Tonight at 9pm ET the NBA Finals finally gets underway. It’s a rematch of last year’s Finals, where the Warriors defeated the Cavs four games to two. Most people seem to think we’ll have a repeat of last year, but Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love weren’t healthy then. They are now, so there’s some hope for long-suffering Cleveland fans. Still, [...]
