Yesterday was my last full day here in Detroit so I did my best to make the most of it. Sarah took the day off from work so that we could hang out and play in the city before my short holiday came to an end. We spent the day in downtown Detroit hitting up some of our favorite spots then I hung out with my parents for a short while before Sarah and I went back downtown to see Peter Murphy in concert at the Magic Stick. We ended the night on the couch in Sarah’s Den of Slack watching bad TV together. All in all, a pretty perfect day. More »

Back in March of 2012 we learned that the planned remake of the 1987 film RoboCop found it’s lead actor … then we saw the first photos of star Joel Kinnaman on set in costume as RoboCop as filming production on the movie got underway. Then, seemingly out of the blue, we learned that production on the reboot was halted because the film’s release date was pushed back from 2013 to 2014. Honestly, I thought for sure the pushed back release date was just a way for the studio to scrap the movie altogether … but today we get to see new photos from the set of RoboCop, proving that the reboot plans are back in action. In case you forgot what Kinnaman looks like as the new RoboCop (or just want a fresh look), check out new photos from the set below. More »

You know. There was some point mid-season in Revenge where I was like, ‘Hmmm, I dunno that I’m gonna watch the third season.‘ I think many of us felt like things had kinda fallen off a bit, storylines were less revenge-y and even though it was still fun, it just wasn’t the same as season one (it never is!). Well, last night the two hour season premiere went down and any plans I might have had for not watching the show in the fall got totally shut down. Last night was insaaaannnnneeeee! The deaths! The lies! And friggen Patrick! Click inside for more!
