Wondering what movies have been doing with the horror genre this year? Just in time for Halloween, let’s look at some of the most notable efforts of 2013, while sprinkling in some random oldies as well, because the cemetery of horror cinema is a vast plot.
Hello all! I’m coming to you with what will hopefully be a semi-regular column, “Reelfinder,” as we find new and interesting trailers to present to you. It’s sort of like our “Viewfinder” where we preview the film as if the trailer is the film;s single. We’ll discuss them a bit and tell you why we believe you should see the film that’s coming soon to a theatre near you! A new Coen Bros. film has become quite the anticipated event [...]
Yesterday we took a trip through Nos. 20-11 on our list of the best Pop Culture Vehicles of All-Time. Today we present you with the top 10. As you can see from yesterday’s 10, it appears that most of us grew up as children of the ’80s, what with the 1989 version of the Batmobile, the A-Team van, Magnum’s Ferrari and the Griswold’s Family Truckster gracing the list. That doesn’t stop here with six more vehicles that were prominent in [...]
There are some rather spectacular looking movies coming out in the final two months of 2013. Which ones are you planning to see?
It was after a trip to visit a prospect’s business that I wondered aloud, “What’s the coolest pop culture vehicle of all-time?” You see, unfortunately, I’m not actually a full-time scribe for PopBlerd!

Like people paid him tons, upon tons of money and he souped-up their already souped-up classic autos. It was quite the sight, seeing three to four classic cars sitting in his [...]
Early this morning news broke that Ben Affleck, he of the Mallrats fame, was named the next Batman, for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, set to be released in 2015. Since I’m on the West Coast, I was a little late to the Twittersphere #Batfleck blow up, mostly filled with cries from comic nerds (and wannabe comic nerds) about how awful Affleck will be as the Caped Crusader. I am a Batman fan. Not a huge Batman fan, but I’d grade myself at your [...]
“A bitter Frost has just descended on Boston” is the headline that director Edgar Wright gives a group of Boston critics late in July after a lengthy conversation about what it was like working behind-the-scenes on his latest film, The World’s End, when a throwaway comment from Nick Frost (“I fuckin’ hate Edgar!” says Frost after Simon Pegg jokingly calls him bitter when talking about being mates and still not seeing each other on set due to the busy workload) [...]
In the beginning there was Shaun of the Dead which single handedly reignited the zombie flick and introduced audiences not already familiar with the UK’s Spaced to Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Edgar Wright. Then came Hot Fuzz which presented a hyperactive take on the buddy cop genre. Now the boys from across the pond tackle aliens, addiction, and social politics?!?! It’s true! Pegg, Frost, and Wright reunite for the explosive finale to what has been dubbed “Three Flavours Cornetto [...]
