TGITDNMAR: (2/20/15)

TGITDNMAR: (2/13/15)

As predicted in this very space last week, The Wachowskis’ latest, Jupiter Ascending, bombed spectacularly at the box office this weekend, grossing a shade over $18 million. That’s $18 million against a $175 million production budget. That’s, um, bad. Really […]

This week’s column marks the one year anniversary of both my time at Man, I Love Films and the resurrection of TGITDNMAR. I can’t tell you how many times in the past year I’ve been asked what TGITDNMAR stands for. […]
