Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (2014)
Before this film, I can say with no shame that I knew absolutely nothing about the CABIN FEVER franchise.  Oh, I knew it existed, and – while that’s all well and good – I suspect …

Young & Beautiful (2013)
I’ve written about my fascination with French films before.  It isn’t as if I believe they have any particular ‘hold’ on any particular genre that other nations can’t …

Blood Glacier (2013)
Of all the various sub-genres within the pantheon of horror films, my personal favorite has been and will probably always be the classic monster movie.  This isn’t to say that I’m only …

A Promise
Love is an emotion that defies all explanation or understanding.  While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, love remains something that can be seen by those around you, but often times the how …

Best Bikram Yoga Towel
Now, purists and/or web-based haters are gonna say I’m not the best person to provide a review of the Bikram Yoga Towel.  Why?  Well, that’s because I’m ready, willing, and …
King Conan - The Conqueror (Part 2 of 6)
What can be said about a second issue in a multi-chapter miniseries?  Well, unlike the first installment (which basically serves to ‘set the stage’), the second usually is where the writer …

The Possession of Michael King
I have a long, happy relationship with horror films.  As one who firmly believes there could possibly be ‘something’ to that thing called the Occult, every now and then I find myself …
The Captain's Peril
To be perfectly honest, I didn’t expect much going into William Shatner’s CAPTAIN’S PERIL, but it might not be for the obvious reason.  Bill gets a lot of negative press about how …

Home Is Where The Heart Is (2013)
I grew up in a small town.  Granted, it might not be as small as the one depicted in HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS, but it was still pretty small.  In many respects, it had the same kind of attitude …
King Conan: The Conqueror (Part 1 of 6)
As I’ve often said (and kinda/sorta been derided for), telling a first issue can be a treacherous, treacherous thing.  There’s a balance I think every writer seeks to create, one that …
The Star Wars (Hardcover)
Behind every great story is obvious a story about that which never got told: namely the original tale.  From the script to the screen is one thing, but what about from the writer’s head on …
Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Cry of Shadows
One of the most significant and personal reasons I read comic books is for the inherent escapism.  I love to find myself lost in the pages of a good graphic read, being whisked away from reality …

WPC 56: Series One
As long as there’s been civilization, there have been morality plays, the many extrapolations and treatises exploring the rights and wrongs of how we live our lives.  While the police procedural …

Well, there’s a subtle truth to filmmaking that never quite gets reported on.  Regular folks like you and me?  We might speak it behind-the-scenes or while we’re shuffling through …

Hateship Loveship (2013)
Hollywood and/or Hollywood-types have a long fascination in depicting what they perceive “the regular folks” to look like in America.  Often times, I hate to say that it ain’t pretty.  …

Rage (2014)
Hey, look: forgive me if I don’t want to be the one to tell you to put the latest Nicolas Cage effort back on the video store shelf where you picked it up.  By now, you ought to know that if …

Breathe In (2013)
Some films end up being so well made that the filmmakers inadvertently siphon all relevant meaning from them.  This doesn’t imply that there are no longer lessons to learn or case studies worth …

Zack Parker's Proxy
Parenting can be tough.  That’s for sure.  As a parent, you have no only the weight of the world on your shoulders but also you share in the burdens putting stress onto those of your significant …
The Savage Sword of Conan the Barbarian #163
To my delight, I’m getting the chance to relive some of the Conan graphic tales of the 80’s – a time when the Cimmerian was less concerned with where his next meal was coming from and …
Conan The Avenger (#4)
For this particular time and particular place, it isn’t uncommon for there to be various forces conspiring behind the ruling elite in some secret big for power.  But equally compelling for …
Dejah Thoris and the Green Men of Mars - Volume 1: Red Meat
When I was a boy, I read a fair amount of what one might call vintage Science Fiction.  Sure, I’d also read some of the more contemporary stuff for that time (mid-1970’s to mid-1980’s), …
The Savage Sword of Conan the Barbarian #162
To my delight, I’m getting the chance to relive some of the Conan graphic tales of the 80’s – a time when the Cimmerian was less concerned with where his next meal was coming from and …

To my delight, I’m getting the chance to relive some of the Conan graphic tales of the 80’s – a time when the Cimmerian was less concerned with where his next meal was coming from and …
The Strain: Book One (Hardcover)
Don’t you just know it but there’s always some ancient evil secret at the heart of any good horror-based conspiracy, no?  Sure, there is!  And most of the times those ancient evil …
Conan The Avenger (#3)
Epic fantasy that involves barbarians, kings, and queens gets great mileage out of the obvious and clandestine pursuits of power.  For example, HBO’s stellar GAMES OF THRONES is entirely about …
Conan the Avenger (#2)
I realize that part of my issue in evaluating CONAN comics is that because I’m such a big fan of the Cimmerian, his worlds, and these tales I’m probably predisposed to liking just about anything …
Conan the Avenger (#1)
On occasion, I tend to be the lone voice in the wilderness I’ve found when it comes to some of Dark Horse Comics’ take on the CONAN material.  Having read a handful of Robert E. Howard’s …

Rigor Mortis (2013)
Someone far wiser than I said it best: the truest horror films are the ones that scare you with the strength of their ideas.  They scare you with what they don’t show you as much as what they …

I'll Follow You Down (2013)
Like most folks, I love time travel flicks.  I’ve seen many of the classics which explored the idea of moving through time, and I’ve even suffered my way through a handful of very dry …
Star Wars: Dark Empire II
Erm … it’s a bit difficult to figure what to make of Dark Horse’s DARK EMPIRE II.  Rarely does a title seem so entirely unnecessary much less a crass attempt to cash in on a middling …
Bitten: The Complete First Season
Seriously, when did monsters get all hunky and emo 24/7?  Don’t get me wrong: I’m all for a psychological examination that goes hand-in-hand with being one of the Undead or a bloodsucker …

Dragonwolf (2013)
Crime dramas get great mileage out of allying their stories with the themes of William Shakespeare.  And why not?  Has there been an author who so strongly aligns the themes of man and culture …

Ironclad: Battle for Blood (2014)
I have to confess that I didn’t know that there was this whole IRONCLAD franchise.  Well, maybe “franchise” is too strong a word yet ‘cause IRONCLAD came out in only 2011.  …

Varsity Blood (2014)
Now, let me be blunt: just because I may not have enjoyed a particular film isn’t necessarily any reason for me to suggest that you may not enjoy the same.  Granted, I like horror films, and …
The Shadow: Midnight In Moscow (Issue #1 of 6)
As I’ve mentioned before, I consider myself to have grown up on The Shadow.  Naturally, there were other influences – thanks to the comic books provided to me by a very generous distributor …
Han Solo and the Hollow Moon of Khorya
I grew up as part of that generation that had its hearts stolen by George Lucas’s original STAR WARS flick.  You know the one?  Luke, Han, Leia, Chewbacca?  1977?  Long before …
The City of the Edge of Forever (Issue #1 of 5)
I’ve had some experience with IDW Publishing, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I don’t much care for them as a company.  Oh, this isn’t to say that I dislike their properties; …
If you’re anything like me, then you like to know that wherever you are you have choices available to keep your mind busy.  Because of the work that I do – largely reading, writing, watching, …
Airtight Cellular 6.5 Feet USB Data Sync and Charge Cables 30-Pin
I’m a long term hold-out of my electronics.  I like what I like, and – for that reason alone – I tend to hold out on upgrading to the latest, greatest model of darn near anything …

I suppose I like to think about film as much as the next critic.  This doesn’t mean that I require a heavy, meaty subject matter every time I sit before the silver screen or my television set; …
