This Week In Trailers: Faceless, My Heart Can’t Beat Unless You Tell It To, Threshold, From Cradle to Stage, The Gig Is Up

This week, we fight the power while wondering why others don’t, get ill, thank our mom for making our rock stars, make a movie on our phone, a...

This is a solution I'd been thinking about ever since the controversy broke a couple weeks ago (or whenever that was), but I felt pushed over the edge to blog about it when I was driving in my car, listening to the "Bridge" channel on the satellite radio, and this came on:   Dr. Hook. That's a stage name.  The "Hook" name was inspired by Sawyer's eyepatch and a reference to Captain Hook of the Peter Pan fairy tale, although, humorously, Captain Hook was neither a doctor nor wore an eyepat...
