reviewed Alone With Love Songs. July 29, 2013
Alone With Love Songs
Alone with Love Songs is a very personal, almost biographical, collection of poetry by Edwin Romond. Most of the selections in this collection focus on jewel points in Romond's life that have had either …

The Destroyer #97: Identity Crisis
Identity Crisis is a refreshing chapter of the Destroyer saga that eschews the regular international intrigue for local matter that strikes closer to home: Cure finds itself in a disastrous crossfire …
reviewed My Brother's Wife. February 09, 2013
My Brother's Wife
While My Brother's Wife seems at first to be a well written yet unremarkable love triangle/whodunit addition to the noir pulps of the fifties, this short novel proves to be, much like the titular woman …

The Shrimp on the Barbie
It is often considered a red flag when a director decides to obscure his or her involvement in a film by adopting the infamous Alan Smithee pseudonym, a name now synonymous with “bad” movies. …

Visiting Hours
Visiting Hours is a rather uninspiring Canadian-filmed slasher flick, rushed out to capitalize on the success of movies like Halloween, that would have been completely forgotten if not for two coincidental …

Drive Angry 3D
By every stretch of the imagination, Drive Angry should be a bad movie. Low budget car-chase action flick with demons battling from hell on southern highways? I mean, it's even got Nicholas "Wicker …
My Footprint: Carrying the Weight of the World
Having never watched Curb Your Enthusiasm(yeah, I'm THAT guy), my only familiarity with Jeff Garlin in the past has been recognizing his voice as the Ship's Captain in Wall-E. …

There Are No Bad Movies (Only Bad Audiences)
As a person who not only believes in bad moves, but seeks them out intentionally, it is hard to imagine that I would find myself enjoying a book that not only claims that there is no such thing as a bad …

A Sound of Thunder
Director Peter Hyams is no rookie when it comes to bad films. He has made more than his fair share. The best that can be said is that he’s an average director capable of decent work. His films range …

The A-Team (2010)

The Human Centipede (First Sequence)
When The Human Centipede by Tom Six was first recommended to me, I was sure that it was a joke. "No, really. What's it about?" It is the kind of plot that is almost too ridiculous to …

SuperSonic Breakfast Burrito
I am not the kind of person who typically rants and raves about a fast food menu item. A burger is a burger is a burger, after all. But ever since the Sonic chain moved into the Lehigh Valley, I have …

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
This Right Wing Movie Review has been brought to you by the letter T, and by GoldLine, because there’s nothing more patriotic than speculating on America’s eventual financial ruin.  …

The Rare Anthology

  I have never been a huge fan of Michael Mann. His crime dramas have always been too serious and self absorbed for my taste, and he seems to think that eliciting deadpan, monotone performances …

Surrogates Movie Poster
Surrogates falls into that category of films that end up being much better than anticipated. Films that do not screen themselves for critics ahead of the release date are usually predestined clunkers, …

I've gotten a bit soft on remakes over the years, especially when it comes to horror film remakes. While there are many films that one can be argue should never be remade (Casablanca and Willy …

 The Bronx Kill is the first truly successful entry in Vertigo's new manga-style crime series imprint, Vertigo Crime. This is most likely due to the fact that unlike the first two attempts, …
