The Return of the King

Home again, home again, giggity gig!As some of you probably know, I launched this blog on the day of my last Starweek column. And I’ve been trying to find a new home for my particular brand of comprehensive home-video coverage ever since.

Turns out nine months is a pretty good gestation time.

As of today, I’ll be writing on DVDs for Sympatico/MSN, discussing the latest new releases, special editions, reissues, high-def titles, whatever comes along. You can find the first column here.

(Don’t bookmark the link just yet; it’s specific to this week’s column. I’m told there’ll be a fixed index page off the “DVD” tab in the Entertainment section; when that goes live, I’ll include it in my link list over to the right.)

And this isn’t just a DVD gig. I’ll be offering commentary on new theatrical releases every Friday, too; this week, in honor of “Hannibal Rising”, I’ll be looking at the interesting new phenomenon of cinematic brand extensions. You know, “Rocky Balboa“, “Van Wilder 2: The One That Doesn’t Even Have Van Wilder In It” … stuff like that.

You’ll be able to find it in the spotlight box on the Sympatico/MSN home page as well, and it’ll eventually turn up in my link list.

Damn, it’s good to be back.

  1. It’s great to have you back!

    (I’m not sure why you think Science Of Sleep is ‘unconsciously icky’, though — Gondry seems pretty well aware of the negative aspects of letting your unconscious run loose, if you ask me.)
