NBA’s young stars have the league on very solid footing

NBA’s young stars have the league on very solid footing

As the NBA All-Star Game approaches, it seems the league is in pretty good shape. Although Kobe Bryant is about ready to call it a career and guys like LeBron, Carmelo, D-Wade and Chris Paul are easing into their 30′s, the NBA is chock full of young stars ready to step up. Some already have. [...]

Every Super Bowl movie spot

Every Super Bowl movie spot

You may not get blockbusters quite as eagerly anticipated as 2015′s Jurassic World and The Force Awakens in 2016, but there are a number of big budget movies we’re looking forward to. As usual, the Super Bowl was the place for movie studios to try and fan the hype for already mostly high-profile films. Among [...]

Panthers’ future far more clear than Broncos’ next year

Panthers’ future far more clear than Broncos’ next year

Defense won out in the Super Bowl yet again on Sunday as Denver defeated Carolina 24-10 to take home the Lombardi trophy. Two years ago Denver rolled into the Super Bowl with a juggernaut offense and as a favorite and was stymied by Seattle’s dominant defense. This time the Broncos had the dominant defense–more than a [...]

Duke falls out of the top 25, and the haters laugh it up

Duke falls out of the top 25, and the haters laugh it up

The Duke-haters had reason to celebrate on Monday. Mike Krzyzewski’s Blue Devils have lost four of five and slipped out of the AP Top 25 for the first time since 2007-2008. Duke’s run in the top 25 was the fifth-longest in the history of the poll, which has been around since 1948. Probably more concerning [...]

Not exactly ‘The Finest Hours’ possible at the movies

Not exactly ‘The Finest Hours’ possible at the movies

Plot: Aw, see, there’s not too much that wrong with The Finest Hours. It’s just a movie that won’t blow you out of the water, so to speak. A safe, PG-13 choice for a family or date movie based on a real-life Coast Guard rescue in 1952, The Finest Hours stars Chris Pine as Bernie, [...]

Donald Trump’s move to skip the GOP debate is brilliant

Donald Trump’s move to skip the GOP debate is brilliant

Okay, I was wrong about Donald Trump just like most of the political pundits. I didn’t think he’d run for president. I didn’t think he’d remain the GOP frontrunner for this long. I thought when he said (insert any questionable Trump comment here) he would lose some of his mojo. I was wrong–but so were [...]

It’s finally just about game time in the presidential race

It’s finally just about game time in the presidential race

We’ve had six Republican debates and four Democratic debates. We’ve had endless back and forth between the candidates, personal feuds and vendettas, and campaign ads running almost non-stop in the early voting states. If you’re not already kind of sick of the race already, well, congratulations. You’re a heckuva lot more patient a person than [...]

Setting Jada Pinkett Smith straight on #OscarsSoWhite

Setting Jada Pinkett Smith straight on #OscarsSoWhite

Horrible news on the #OscarsSoWhite front. Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith won’t be attending the Oscars. They’re upset that for the second straight year no black actors or actresses were nominated by the Academy in the major acting categories. Pinkett Smith was no doubt upset her husband Will wasn’t nominated for Concussion. Look, I [...]

’10 Cloverfield Lane’ trailer comes out of nowhere

’10 Cloverfield Lane’ trailer comes out of nowhere

Well that was unexpected. JJ Abrams has had his hands full with Star Wars and Star Trek recently, among other things. So the last thing we expected any time soon was a sequel to 2008′s Cloverfield. But attached to Michael Bay’s 13 Hours: The Secret Soliders of Benghazi was a trailer that nobody saw coming–10 [...]

‘The Revenant’ is more than just a happy bear mauling

‘The Revenant’ is more than just a happy bear mauling

Leonardo DiCaprio may or may not finally get an Oscar for his work in The Revenant, but there’s no doubt he has once again given us some fine work. Best Actor Oscar on the way? I have no idea, but he’s done the best job I’ve ever seen playing the role of a guy who gets repeatedly [...]
