Robot Movies Are Always Good
Or, if not “good,” at least “watchable.” But it looks like Hugh Jackman and company will put the premise-I-just-made-up to the test with 2011’s Real Steel. If Transformers could somehow have a baby with Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, the … Continue reading

A Far-Too-Detailed Blog About the 2011 WWE Draft
The annual sports entertainment rite of passage known as the inaptly-named WWE Draft took place tonight (April 25, as I write this). The event fascinates me for reasons wholly unrelated to in-ring competition. For fans savvy enough to read between … Continue reading

“Sports Show” Really [Positive Sports Metaphor]!

SitCombat: 4/28/11 (Or: On the Narrative Integrity of The Office)
