What Do Buffy, Hellboy and a Gay Robot Have in Common?

Doug Jones, Gay Robot

As far as culty pleasures go, Gay Robot may very well take the cupcake. An unsold TV pilot that's found new life online (at MySpace.com/GayRobot), the feyest droid since C-3PO is both proof of the power of the Internet and a perfectly twisted comedy that, well, even cable isn't ready for. And that is just how Doug Jones likes it. The affable actor behind the motorized man-lover may not be a familiar face, but there's no doubt that he's caused a few jaws to drop with his heavily disguised turns in everything from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth to this summer's read more

Call it "ghoul power": Horror flick The Messengers placed first at the box office over the weekend with a take of $14.5 million, which handily trounced the $13 million haul of second-place finisher (and the weekend's only other new release) Because I Said So.

Super Bowl Sunday: Après le Déluge

The best thing I saw on Super Bowl Sunday? Pan’s Labyrinth. But that’s a different story (or a different column). Anything to get out of doors (even in the frigid cold) to skip the first few hours of pre-Super Bowl hype.The worst thing I saw on Super Bowl Sunday? A typically unpleasant, thoroughly predictable episode of Criminal Minds that followed the big game. More on that later.In between, we had a game played in torrential rain that had plenty of reversals (how slippery was that football, anyway?) and was plenty exciting, especially to a former Indiana resident and current Peyton Manning fan. The buzz about Super Bowls is that this is usually the one night of the year when you actually watch the ads and zip your TiVo through the game. This year, that would have been a mistake.I lost count of the number of moronic Bud Light ads I had to sit through just to get to the two memorable ads for classic Budweiser. As usual, there was a classy one involving Clydesdales, this ye... read more
