Vic + Flo Saw A Bear
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; …

Elton John: The Million Dollar Piano
I once made the mistake of saying to a group of friends who consider themselves “music aficionados” that I didn’t think Sir Elton John was a very good vocalist.  After they handed …

I’ve always admired the work of actor Lance Henriksen.  He’s been in some great movies and television … and – as tends to happens in the world of Hollyweird – he’s …
Dream Thief: Escape (#2 of 4)
An awful lot of fiction has drawn from one’s search for revenge to fuel the narrative.  Heck, even Bruce Wayne himself capitalized psychologically on the loss of his parents by using that seminal …
Dream Thief: Escape (#1 of 4)
So long as there have been ghosts there have been questions of what purposes these spirits ultimately serve.  While a handful of theories exist, it’s generally been accepted that those who …

It's Best To Shoot In The Head
Hardboiled fiction is in my wheelhouse.  In fact, I’ve often said, “The harder the prose, the better.”  I prefer my heroes and antiheroes with as much attitude as they have …

Freedom is great, isn’t it?  In America, you’re basically free to do what you want (so they say), say what you want (so they say), be what you want (so they say), think what you want …
The Chronicles of Conan Volume 27: Sands Upon the Earth

Exploring Space 1999: An Episode Guide and Complete History of the Mid-1970s Science Fiction Television Series
As I’ve mentioned in another review recently, I missed the whole SPACE: 1999 phenomenon of the late 70’s.  Basically, I grew up in a small town in a time unlike today that one didn’t …
The Chronicles of King Conan, Volume 8: The Road to Empire and Other Stores

Star Wars: Darth Maul - Son of Dathomir (#3)

Every now and then, I’m contacted as a reviewer to try out a product that at first blush doesn’t appear all that interested to me.  It isn’t that the offered product lacks any appeal; …
Space: 1999 - Aftershock and Awe
Maybe eighteen months or so ago, I saw a copy of SPACE: 1999 – AFTERSHOCK AND AWE on the shelves at my local Barnes & Noble.  It was sealed up in plastic so I couldn’t exactly flip …

I suspect that it’s truly difficult to find anything that would register as ‘revolutionary’ with today’s horror audiences, and that’s mostly because they’ve seen it …
Star Wars: Darth Maul - Son of Dathomir (#2)
If you ask around, you’re likely to get a good handful of reasons why folks enjoyed Timothy Zahn’s Heir to the Empire trilogy so much.  For one, Zahn demonstrated precisely how adept …

Sex and sexual awakening (of a sort) have always been near the heart of what I think most filmmakers tried to explore by way of Japanese pink films.  Yes, some of the experiences were traumatic – …
