Neeson stomps, Neeson-style, in Non-Stop.
Recapping the best of the fest.
While Downton Abbey isn't ostensibly a 'foodie' show, I still can't watch it without getting a bit peckish.

The above image is exactly what we imagine you say when you see the weekly headline announcing the best things to do in sports this weekend. You're all, "FUCK YEAH, MOTHER EFFER! IT'S TIME FOR SPORTS! WOO!" Then you read about the things we have to offer and you're all, "YEAH...wait, what?" That's ... More >>
Skyfall is basically Downton Abby with cyber crime and shower sex.
The Face was somewhere between the look you make while waiting for a fart to dissipate on the subway and the countenance furnished when your father makes a totally weird joke in front of your girlfriend.

But since you've been drinking anyway, you might as well crack open another one and sit through the one awards show even the People's Choice Awards can look down its nose at. I'll be updating this entry throughout the broadcast, so refresh often and try ... More >>
A quick survey of my friends' status updates on Facebook Sunday night confirmed what I'd suspected for weeks: 200% of them were watching something called Downton Abbey.
