My thanks to my good friend Joe Darnell — who officially left the day to day operations of MovieByte almost a year ago now — for taking the helm of the site for me Thursday, Friday, and yes, even going the extra mile and posting a couple things on Saturday while I took a vacation (I hardly ever post on Saturday in consideration of my sanity).
He did a fine job, with a particularly good op-ed and a review of How To Train Your Dragon 2 that I didn’t particularly agree with, but it was good. If you haven’t had the opportunity, make sure you check out his entries from the last couple of days.
- Good Films Get Marketing Late In Production (The op-ed I mentioned)
- Disney Made $40.9 Billion in 2013 Merchandise
- Scary Trailer: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
- Reese Witherspoon is ‘A Great White Cow’ in Refugee Drama
- Next Pixar Film has Personal and Emotional Origins for Director Pete Docter
- ‘The Judge’ Trailer has Robert Downey Jr. Fight the Law to Save Robert Duvall (I’m definitely interested in this film, it looks fantastic)
- Rian Johnson Just Announced as the Next Star Wars Director (Um, whoa!!! It’s almost like, “and you get a Star Wars film, and you get a Star Wars film, and you get a Star Wars film…)
- How to Train Your Dragon 2 — Review
Again, many thanks are in order! Let’s give the guy a round of applause.
