Star Wars Minute
















For those of you who have enjoyed me analyzing screenplays, you can now LISTEN to me do so as I bloviate at length about various issues on the excellent podcast The Star Wars Minute here. The show was a ton of fun to do, the hosts are wonderful fellows, and at no point did they stop and say “Uh, Todd, we kind of need to wrap this up.”

Didi & Gogo: the tumblr page


















For those who enjoy cats, and silliness, I’d like to direct you to my tumblr page, Didi & Gogo, where I chronicle the recording career of my cats.

Coming attractions

I’m in the middle of a move, but stay tuned, Skyfall is up next.

Nota bene

I am also on Tumblr now.  Don’t get your hopes up, I’m new at this.

If you were interested in what I had to say about The Hunger Games, you can read it again and a lot more cool stuff over at Cultural Weekly.


My fake bio

The bizarre website Kosmix has a page for “Opinions and Discussions” about me.  I have no idea what Kosmix’s brief is, because the articles cited on the page all seem to begin coherently, then spiral quickly into word-salad gobbledegook.  But I draw your attention to the above bio, which is presented there with calm authority, in spite of the fact that, past the first sentence, the entire thing is a complete fabrication.

The next time someone asks me for a bio, I’m turning this in.

What Does The Beat Want?

It’s been a big internet week for me.  First, I launched this new blog (if you haven’t switched your Livejournal bookmarks, do so now!)  Then, out of nowhere, someone I’ve never even met made this smashing video out of a monologue I wrote 20 years ago, and it’s caught on like internet wildfire.  And now, my good friend Heidi McDonald at The Beat has started re-posting some of my earlier comics-movies-related analyses, starting with my look at 1966’s Batman: The Movie.

This is the first time one of my blog pieces has been re-posted in another forum, but the reviews are in and readers are ecstatic!

“You are a complete idiot!” – vlucca

“Although I wouldn’t level the charge of “idiot” as vlucca does,I would say ‘misguided’ or “sloppy.'” – S. Chapman

“This so-called “analysis” …  seems to have missed the mark entirely!” – KET

“This isn’t so much analysis as it is a badly-written review of a film that the reviewer obviously doesn’t understand or appreciate!” – John
