    To the screen, and back again
    I'm 51 and Bilbo-free. Somehow "The Hobbit" has eluded me my entire reading life. What was I reading in junior high when I first noticed everyone else was reading it? "Big A: The Story of Lew Alcindor," maybe. Or William K. Everson's book on Laurel &...

    'Sharknado': How Twitter turned it from campy to instant classic
    “Sharks. Tornado. Sharknado.” That, right there, was the entire promo ad for the Syfy channel’s latest campy, poorly produced, shamefully acted, and horribly written masterpiece. Yes. Masterpiece. Look, I’m a seasoned vet...

    Top 5 shark kills from 'Sharknado'
    Syfy's "Sharknado" premiered Thursday night, devouring the popularity of the network's previous campy shark flicks such as "Dinoshark," "Sharktopus" and the "Mega Shark Versus ..." duo. (That'd be "Crocosaurus" and "Giant Octopus.") According to Syfy,...
