- What’s Up with the Dupont Underground (right), a photo gallery made from a tour of a former Washington, DC streetcar station. Thanks to my fiancee Veronica Ebert for the assist!
- Godzilla vs. DCist: The Ba Bay Monster that Might have Been (below). My first food article for DCist, about a sandwich you can no longer get from a restaurant that abruptly shut its doors just a few days after I consumed this monster in record time.
- Out of Frame: Jack and Jill. Speaking of monsters, I reviewed the latest Adam Sandler movie for DCist. I am not of the school of cinema studies that normally consider Sandler’s films crimes against celluloid, but this film caused physical pain.
- DVD Review: Dahling: A tribute to Zsa Zsa Gabor. For Blogcritics. Remember the name Hollywood Select Video, and don’t ever buy anything with their imprint or persistent watermark.
And recent Popcorn & Candy columns for DCist:
- Celluoid Heroes Edition, in which I blurb The Swell Season and various local repertory screenings.
- Marine, Tailor, Birdman, Clown Edition, in which I rave about the Afghan War doc Hell and Back Again and recommend George Franju’s Judex sight unseen, though it turns out the film isn’t nearly as intriguing as this misleading clip.
- Homewrecker Elmo Edition, in which I review Being Elmo, a documentary that despite the apparently inspiring career arc has its moments of darkness.
- Why the Long Face Edition, in which I plug Franju’s more successful Eyes Without a Face and reluctantly admire the indie rock-father daughter team of Janie Jones.
- It’s Crawling Down Your Back Edition. Has it really been that long since I’ve posted these?
- Hard Boiled Edition, in which I round up the AFI’s Noir City festival.
