Wrong Cops
I think each of us has an age wherein we delight in the fundamentally absurd.  I’d imagine that, for most of us, it’s in our early teen years.  We find practically anything funny.  …
reviewed Daddy's Little Girl. Last Wednesday

Daddy's Little Girl
DADDY’S LITTLE GIRL is one of those films that’s hard to talk about without spoiling certain significant elements of it.  Suffice it to say, I’m going to give it an honest try, …
Star Wars: Han Solo In Carbonite Bank
If you’re anything like me, then you grew up loving the original STAR WARS Trilogy.  Sure, you sat through that Prequel Trilogy mostly because you only really wanted to know how it would all …
reviewed V Wars. April 08
V Wars
I’ve read a book by Jonathan Maberry.  I don’t remember being all that thrilled with it, but I certainly enjoyed it enough to stick the name in my brain with a tickler in case I came …

95ers: Time Runners
Like so many viewers, time travel fascinates me … so I’m naturally drawn to science fiction films that explore similar themes.  There have been many, many great ones over the years; …

Confession of Murder
I’ve been enjoying films out of South Korean for going on two decades now.  That isn’t to say that I’ve enjoyed everything that’s come out of that great nation; it is to say, …

Holy Ghost People
Erm … it’s been my experience that the “Macabre” series of films released by XLrator Media have usually been accessible horror flicks.  Am I wrong?  Sure, there have …

Camp Dread
Imagine – if you will – that you and your fellow yucksters from the Class of ’85 got together at a reunion to talk about the good ol’ days.  Imagine that one of the things …

Blood Moons
I know my Sunday School teachings well enough to know that, one day, mankind is due for the ultimate Biblical comeuppance.  We’re sinners, and, as a consequence of that and our failure to find …

Galaxina
BARBARELLA.  FLESH GORDON.  CHERRY 2000.  HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN.  The more pulpy sci-fi films never shy away from taking advantage of female attributes.  Heck, George Lucas threw …

Hurricane 360 Spin Mop
As one who dabbles in serious product testing, I’m willing to give practically anything a reasonable try.  All I ask is that it (A) appear a reasonable investment, (B) only require modest (if …
Robinson Crusoe on Mars - Criterion Collection
This is no joke: as a huge fan of science fiction films, I’d heard plenty about ROBINSON CRUSOE ON MARS throughout the years.  The simple truth of the matter is that I’d just never gotten …

Things to Come (1936)
In all seriousness, I hold classic films in very high regard.  I’ve always been fascinated by what storytellers have been able to accomplish in cinema, and it’s even more captivating …
Brian May & Kerry Ellis: The Candlelight Concerts - Live at Montreux 2013
I love acoustic-style performances.  I always have.  I think there’s honestly nothing as magnificently sublime as pairing the human voice with either a single instrument (or very few) …
reviewed A Man from Rio. March 31
A Man from Rio
Those who’ve had the courtesy to follow even a small measure of items I give my most favorable scores to know (and probably appreciate) my love of hard-boiled prose.  As I’ve mentioned …
Broadchurch: The Complete First Season
It’s not always easy to review an entire run of one program’s season.  For starters, some U.S. shows can be well over twenty individual hourly episodes, and that’s a daunting investment …

War of the Worlds: Goliath
For a while now, I’ve argued with friends that Hollywood has been really missing a terrific opportunity to capture some of the magic belonging to vintage science fiction stories.  For example, …

Knights of Badassdom
Although I like to privately imagine myself still of that age group acceptably dubbed ‘fanboys,’ I’m probably a bit older than most to be a true card-carrying variety.  I’ve …

posted in Movie Hype
Gone With The Woman
One of the reasons I tend to struggle with romantic comedies is that, despite perhaps the best intentions of the involved creative types, the uniqueness of the male perspective just gets lost in the translation.  …

Cyxork 7
Erm … well, as I pride myself on being perfectly honest, I made it thirty minutes into CYXORK 7 before I reached for the remote and began fast-forwarding.  That’s because so very little …

Jusitce League: Flashpoint Paradox
With as long as many of these DC characters have been around, I would imagine that some writers and illustrators certainly have their work cut out for themselves when it comes to crafting a tale that’s …

Justice League: War
I grew up reading DC Comics.  Batman, Robin, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and Green Lantern were always on my bookshelves, and, as I grew more and more familiar with them, I was even happier …
OXA Mini Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with Rechargeable Battery
Technology amazes me.  When I was growing up, you practically had to have the largest boom box on the planet in order to experience the rich, full sound of music in the comfort of an expansive living …
OXA 350 Lumen Cree Q5 Black UltraBright LED Flashlight with 5 Modes, Charger and Rechargeable Battery
Like most guys I know, I consider myself a bit of a gadget junkie.  If there’s anything somewhat mechanical and/or technical in nature that can be manufactured AND fits in my pocket in any …

Forgetting the Girl (2012)
We’ve been spoiled.  No, I’m not talking about plot details; rather, I’m talking about whodunits.  Those of us who truly enjoy whodunits have been inundated for decades with …

The Truth About Emanuel (2013)
As a viewer, I personally feel I can only asked to suspend disbelief through so many layers of the narrative.  I’m OK with quirky characters.  I’m OK with pretentious teenagers.  …
Devil's Due: The Cards in the Deck I
The boomtown that is so much of electronic publishing continues to churn out one new adventure after another in every genre conceivable.  Despite there being a glut of good, bad, and ugly fiction …
Red Sonja #4 (Ongoing)
It’s been said many times before – and by those far more eloquent than I – that what matters most in life is not how many times you’re knocked down but that you get back up.  …
Star Wars Legacy II: Volume 1: Prisoner of the Floating World
Occasionally, I have a minor disagreement with others I know who do what I do and pen criticism online.  Their opinion is that, as writers, we always have to maintain the ability to dissect a work …

300 Rise of an Empire
Sometimes the best that can honestly be said about a motion picture is that it knew precisely what it wanted to deliver and, in the final sum, it did so.  300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE falls into that category, …

Headhunters (film)
HEADHUNTERS is an extremely well-produced black comedy that borrows liberally from the cat-and-mouse white-collar caper flicks of many nations.  Executive headhunter Roger Brown is played by Aksel …
Red Sonja #3 (Ongoing)
Fire and ice.  When I think of Red Sonja, I’ve always thought of fire and ice.  If you’ll bear with me for a moment whilst I wax somewhat poetically, then I think you’ll understand.  …

Swerve (2012)
Oh, what a man won’t do for the right woman!  Or should that properly be phrased as, “Oh, what a man won’t do should the right woman ask … the right way!”  Similar …

Uncut (2009)
Given how many production companies big and small as well as wannabe media mavens presently occupy planet Earth, I suspect that it’s really quite difficult to come up with something that feels not …
Star Wars: Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin
Think what you may, but I’ve always believed that Darth Vader is one of the most interesting characters in all of movie fiction.  Why?  Well, it could be primarily because he’s such …
Red Sonja #2 (Ongoing)
As the song goes, “sisters are doing it for themselves.”  There’s always been some unspoken camaraderie between the fairer sex --- they’ll band together to protect one another …

Iron Sky: Director's Cut (Steelbook)
If the movies taught me anything as of late, it’s that Nazis are due for a comeback!  They’re taken center stage in some pretty solid World War II era zombie flicks, and I recall watching …
Warlord Of Mars: Dejah Thoris #7
Don’t think me a prude, but methinks I’ve figured out why so many fanboys approach this particular WARLORD OF MARS title with such reverence, such fondness, and such acclaim: at times, it’s …

Contracted (2013)
I’m a big fan of zombie films.  I’ve always loved stories that have tinkered in this world wherein the dead aren’t quite dead – not, at least, the way they should be – …

Wicked Blood (2014)
Seriously.  Hollywood screenwriters have some increasingly macabre fascination with American small towns.  If the motion pictures they churn out are any indication, then an intelligent person …
