Day, n. A period of twenty-four hours, mostly misspent. ~Ambrose Bierce
I’m enjoying the somewhat leisurely pace of the entertainment industry in April, because I know May is going to be an explosion of pure media so huge that it will set off tsunami alarms. TV finales and the announcements of 2014-2015 season schedules from the networks. STAR WARS DAY (May 4th for the unwashed)! Then a movie gauntlet the likes of which I cannot recall every being slammed into one month: Amazing Spider-Man 2, Neighbors, Godzilla, X-Men Days of Future Past, Maleficent and a Million Ways to Die in the West. Donations to the “Dave Has to Review All of These in a 30 Day Period” Fund are always accepted. By the way, speaking of summer movies, today’s the last day to vote on the poll, which experienced a huge shift in the last 10 days. A certain giant lizard is getting some huge buy-in from the KT community.
