Equinox Criterion Collection DVD
When I decided to review EQUINOX in its Criterion release I was all hyped up and ready to go. I should have done it then rather than wait until The next day. Why? Because on that morning I learned the …
reviewed Graven Images. February 07, 2009
Graven Images
GRAVEN IMAGES is exactly what it claims to be, 235 pages of the best fantasy and science fiction film art you could possibly imagine and-- beyond! It features beautifully reproduced photos of everything …
reviewed Horror of Dracula. December 23, 2008
DVD front
In the 1950s, the classic horror monsters of old had been abandoned in favor of the more trendy atomic monsters. Most of these new monsters were giant bugs or lizards, which naturally have no personalities …
reviewed The World of the Dark Crystal. December 22, 2008
Book Cover
Combining the talents of Jim Henson's storytelling with Brian Froud's exquisite art, The Dark Crystal is an amazing film. The World of the Dark Crystal is a must-have companion piece to the film. …
reviewed Green Day: American Idiot. December 19, 2008
Album cover
First of all, let me begin this review by saying that I'm not a diehard Green Day fan. I've always been more of an "old school" punk fan. And Green Day's usually too commercially accessible …
reviewed Boris Vallejo. December 19, 2008
Boris Vallejo
If you are interested in fantasy/erotica art at all, if you haven't heard of Boris Vallejo...you should. His work, and that of his wife, Julie Bell, is some of the most beautiful of the genre. His paintings …
reviewed Mark Rothko (book). November 09, 2008
Mark Rothko
This is a very fine collection and reflects more than just Rothko's colorfield paintings. There's a bit of biographical information and some nice commentary, but that isn't really the focus here. The …

Death Tunnel
Pros: If you like breasts and screaming, this is for you     Cons: If you want the usual things in a movie, this isn't for you     The Bottom Line: Blech     …
reviewed Blood Surf. September 02, 2005
posted in Movie Hype
Blood Surf
Though three stars is probably a little too generous, "Blood Surf" is a sufficient film for its genre. It has lots of silly surfer music with plenty of silly dialogue AND a silly looking crocodile that's …
reviewed Dracula (1931 film). November 14, 2003
posted in Movie Hype
Dracula (1931 movie)
Don't look for special effects in this film. The eerieness is created by the black and white and actor facial expressions, especially at the beginning at Dracula's castle. Excellent performances by Bela …
Munch: The Scream (One Hundred Paintings Series)
This book is short, only 48 pages, but is packed with an incredible amount of information and art. Zeri has done a phenomenal job of encapsulating Munch's life and work in a single, easily digestible …
reviewed Tool: Lateralus. May 20, 2003
posted in Music Matters
Lateralus
_Lateralus_ reconciles the division between within & without, self & other, body & mind, heaven & earth and brings them into perfect harmony.
reviewed Tool: Lateralus. November 12, 2002
Lateralus
_Lateralus_ defies any description one can muster with the English language. German would be a better choice, but even then one must inevitably find the words to be failing. This is the 21st century's …
reviewed She Creature. August 28, 2002
posted in Movie Hype
She Creature
Pros: a temptingly naked mermaid and a delicious monster     Cons: well, it's a monster flick     The Bottom Line: just a good old monster movie     …
reviewed Tool: Lateralus. April 03, 2002
Lateralus
You do not listen to this album...you surrender yourself to it. The experience of Lateralus penetrates deeper than the brain -- it is deeply spiritual and uplifting. Sonically, the dark sound works powerfully …
reviewed Nosferatu, the Vampyre. January 17, 2002
posted in Movie Hype
Nosferatu, the Vampyre
Pros: Lighting, directing, Kinski, scenery     Cons: maybe slow, but worth it     The Bottom Line: A must see for those with that vampire feeling inside     …
reviewed Tool: Lateralus. June 07, 2001
Lateralus
I'd always figured Tool was a lame "nu-metal" band with reams of angst and minimal talent.However, this album had become the focus of a discussion among progressive metal fans whose opinions I highly …
reviewed The Getty Museum. January 14, 2000
Los Angeles Museums & Cultural Attractions
Pros: Great site, outstanding facility     Cons: mediocre permanent collection     I had the opportunity last summer to visit the Getty Center Museum. This is a …
