Ranking Bill and Jalen’s NBA Rankings

The highlight of this NBA preseason wasn’t an amazing dunk against a complacent starter too lazy to play defense when the game doesn’t even count. It wasn’t an incredible 4th quarter performance by the Cleveland Cavalier’s surprise #1 overall pick, Anthony Bennett. The best part of the preseason and entire month of October was Bill […]

Weekend Box Office Round-Up, 10/28

Here’s the box office round-up for the weekend of 10/25-10/27. JACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA opened to 32.1 million (avg. 9,537).  It performed like Jackass Number Two which opened to 29.0 million in 2006.

Weekend Box Office Round-Up, 10/21

Seemingly, this movie has broken into the “You-Have-To-See-This-Immediately-Or-People-Will-Make-Fun-Of-You-At-Work” pantheon. Not too […]

Pondering the Trailer for Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Today the first trailer for Wes Anderson’s new film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, was released. Based on its content, the three words best suited to describe what Anderson’s latest is likely to be are “playful,” “precise,” and “peculiar.” In what should come as no coincidence, these are also the best words to describe Wes Anderson […]
