On Jake Gyllenhaal, Drake & Inspiration


New Year’s Day this year was a cold, rainy one in Manhattan. The bright lights of Broadway had always seemed to warm the chills running through my body, particularly on that date. That evening I was attending “Constellations,” a play brought across the Atlantic from its London roots for American Read more

Why the Undertaker still matters in 2015


Think about it for a minute. We’re in the year 2015. Hot topics of conversation center on cars that can drive themselves, space tourism and head sets that can put us in virtual worlds. And still, one of the major headlines of the Wrestlemania season is how will the Read more

Birdman flies high for 2015 Academy Awards


It’s a time-honored tradition of mine to provide an Oscar recap the day after the annual Academy Awards gala each year. It’s also becoming a regular ritual to summarize what a bore the telecast was.

Alex's Official Predictions for the 2015 Oscars


The Oscars are set to take place Sunday night, and, as usual, most of the winners seem pretty clear-cut before the ceremony even starts.
