Tell those close to you, proudly and unapologetically, that you were, in fact, monumentally underwhelmed by a lackluster cinematic offering, and that it was every bit as bad as you expected it to be. This will save them countless hours, perhaps even days, of needless pain.

You probably heard that someone was auctioning off former president Ronald Reagan's blood. What you probably didn't hear was that a scientist has actually used some of that blood to clone Reagan to be Romney's vice presidential nominee.

The Dictator is further proof that it's important to laugh at tyrants, not just fear and hate them. The problem is that this doesn't necessarily make for a great movie.

Theater: New Play Cock Not as Provocative as Title, Sad to Say

Michael Giltz | Posted 07.17.2012 | Home
Michael Giltz

If you call your play Cock, it better be a button-pushing bit of provocation that toys with gender and sexuality in ways both funny and shocking. We keep waiting, not unreasonably, for Cock's big moment, a soliloquy to sex, a panegyric to the penis, a colloquy on cock.

So I finally read your screenplay, and let me start by saying, great job. I didn't really love the title. I know you probably put a lot of thought and effort into Zombiepocalypse: To Hell and Back on the Wings of a Humidor, but something about it just didn't resonate with me.
