Before we get going, I wanna put a quick note out there - I will be a part of a standup contest in the Village next Tuesday, March 3 at a place called The Pinch Bar & Grill, on 237 Sullivan Street between 3rd Street and Sullivan Avenue. Showtime is at 9pm, no cover and no drink minimum. Just come on in and enjoy you some funny. Tuesdays just hang there in the week, too close to Sunday and too far away from Friday - may as well spend it drinking and laughing, if you ask me! Well, drinking, laughing and voting for me would be nice, but just sayin', is all! »»

There's always a passing of the guard in nearly every facet of entertainment, some more profound than others. Dwayne Johnson seemingly took the torch of "muscled action hero" from Arnold Schwarzenegger with an oft-forgotten pass by in The Rundown. The Dark Knight featured Heath Ledger taking the torch from Brandon Lee as the "talented young actor who died young right before an iconic role and lives on in t-shirts" part.

Editor's Note: As we expand our offerings here at the Popcorn Junkies, John Price has agreed to debut a new column he will anchor on a semi-weekly basis. Leading a discussion-type regular feature has always been something we have wanted to do, now John has developed a feature to help anchor our weekly column lineup with Movie Hardball. Mondays will always be Rob Sutton's to talk about action films, ML Kennedy finishes the week off with his unique and acerbic take on film, and with news and reviews throughout the week a big hole in the middle. So instead of one weekly feature, we're debuting two that will alternate with one another. Rotating with this feature will be Lauren Leigh's debut column about life on the wild side of film, Breuerdise. We hope you enjoy both and will gladly accept any feedback we can get. -- Scott "Kubryk" Sawitz, Popcorn Junkies Editor-in-Chief »»
