Others were excited by the potential of a new cast and crew. Last week, I attended a Spider-Man screening thanks to my pal at Marvel. I enjoyed the movie, but wanted a little […]
I’m so psyched for Anchorman 2. The original was a wonderful comedic blend of satire, over-the-top goofiness, and song. The fight scene was…magic.
