Arkansas native David Gordon Green directs "Pineapple Express," the latest from the Judd Apatow crowd.  It opens on Wednesday.  "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2" makes the rounds at the big theaters while Matt Smith's Market Street Cinema gets "Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson." 

I've been a bit occupied on other stuff, but last week brough "Swing Vote" and a few international indies to Little Rock.  "The Dark Knight" continues to dominate the box office.

August is usually a bleak film month.  The rest of the calendar doesn't look all that interesting, although I'm excited for "Tropic Thunder" starring Robert Downey Jr., Jack Black and Ben Stiller, "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" from Woody Allen and "Elegy," an adaptation of Philip Roth's novel "The Dying Animal" starring Penelope Cruz and Ben Kingsley.

I'll be on and off the blog for the next few weeks.  Regular content will pick back up after Labor Day.  If I'm not here, you can probably catch me over at InContention.com talking about the Oscar race.

  • That Time of Year

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.

  • ASU to reap $3.69 million from estate of Jim and Wanda Lee Vaughn

    Arkansas State University announced today plans for spending an expected $3.69 million gift in the final distribution of the estate of Jim and Wanda Lee Vaughn, who died in 2013 and 2015 respectively.
  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
