December 25, 2009

“Avatar” is crafted so skillfully and with such precision with the specific goal of satisfactory storytelling, that to bombard it with criticism is like hating a car for not being a truck.

MERRY CHRISTMAS from the ARMCHAIR!!!

December 25, 2009

Hey Moguls!  Just a quick message from your fellow know-it-alls here at the Armchair.  We’ll be back behind the remote next week with new posts, new features and a whole lot more of telling Hollywood how to do their jobs from the comfort of our own living rooms.  Then, just in time for New Years, the Armchair […]

The Sing-Off is On…

December 16, 2009

Anyone besides me been watching NBC’s latest attempt at mooching off the success of Fox? It’s American Idol meets Glee (their words, not mine), The Sing-Off.

TITLE BOUT: Offbeat Christmas Comedies!

Sure, we love the gingersnap sweetness of the old classics, but sometimes we want to see Christmas stuff EXPLODE! We want Christmas trees […]
