Honestly, I hate it when performers re-release something they’ve already released to the masses at large UNLESS (and here’s the kicker) it’s actually a re-recorded version with something …

Truth be told, there probably doesn’t exist a version of “God Only Knows” that I don’t appreciate on some level.  Lyrically, it’s one of those songs that’s probably …

One of the difficult things about one professional artist covering another professional artist’s top tunes is that most folks end up viewing it as little more than what I’ve often called “professional …

A song originally penned by Kris Kristofferson that has enjoyed some great interpretations by some of the industry’s best vocalists now gets one more compliments of Canada’s own working legend …

From Dusk Till Dawn: Season One
It’s a tricky thing, it is, taking what was essentially a two-hour film and expanding it into a near-10-hour maxi-series.  Clearly, there has to be more depth of character.  There has …
Aliens: Fire and Stone (1 of 4)
I rarely dream, but – when I do – they tend to be very vivid.  And particular.  I notice very specific things.  Colors.  Names.  Very fine details from the experience …

That Girl In Yellow Boots (2010)
Issues of abuse – sexual or otherwise – have been the subject of many films of many nations of the film.  While some might take this to mean that such violence is some macabre form of …

Prometheus: Fire and Stone (#1 of 4)
Let me say this without equivocation: methinks the knuckleheads who function as the press-hounds for Twentieth Century Fox should've been round up and dispatched given the way they pretty much mismanaged …

Armored Attack! (1957)
I do so love a great war picture.  As I get older, methinks they’re grower a bit harder and harder to find in any current studio’s release schedule; and – for that reason – …

Last Passenger (2013)
Let it be known that it’s very difficult to achieve the good action movie these days.  I suspect that there are probably hundreds upon hundreds of reasons for said difficulty, and those reasons …

Queen: Live at The Rainbow '74
I have to admit that I kinda/sorta missed the whole Queen bandwagon in my youth.  Oh, I knew who they were at the time; while I can appreciate the obvious theatricality of the music, I tended to …
The Terminator: 2029-1984
So far as I’m concerned, THE TERMINATOR has always been a great franchise that has suffered from lackluster treatment in the comic books.  Now, I’m not picking on Dark Horse here; they’ve …

Brainquake (2014)
I don’t know what it is.  Maybe I was born too late.  I’ve mentioned before how much I love vintage crime, the type of thing that was being written for the dime novels of the late …

Willow Creek (2013)
Do I believe there’s something in reality that we call Bigfoot?  Well, let me answer by saying I don’t disbelieve.  I’m of the variety – much like WILLOW CREEK’s …

Aftermath (2012)
For those of you who haven’t thought about it, there are a couple of ways to capture the Apocalypse on film.  One way is the road followed by the usual studio big budget blockbusters: you render …

Blood Soaked (2014)
Look: with the advent of low-cost digital filmmaking, practically anyone with a couple of bucks and a good cell phone can write, produce, and shoot a film these days.  However, that doesn’t …

Monika (2012)
Like others, I tend to believe that life is best lived with a little mystery.  A little fantasy.  It’s hard enough getting through however many years we’re each blessed with on this …

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 …

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 …

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.  …

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 …

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), …
