reviewed Dragonslayer. September 26, 2010
Dragonslayer
   Today's random flick is the underrated 1981 fantasy Dragonslayer, starring Peter MacNicol (Janosz from Ghostbusters II and I guess he was on Ally McBeal or some junk) as Galen the Sorcerer's …

The Greatest American Hero - Season One (1981)
The show was the somewhat reluctant brainchild of Stephen J. Cannell (the uber writer/producer who brought us Hunter and 21 Jump Street) who said in the special features that the idea of doing a Super …

Groovie Goolies
   I've crossed this cartoon's path a few times in the last 10 years but never got around to checking it out until recently.  The first time I heard about the show was when I picked …

The Wizard
What can I say about the Wizard?  When this flick came out I was at the apex of my Nintendo playing years as well as one huge Fred Savage fan.  It seemed like you couldn't turn on the TV …

Near Dark (1987)
The mid 90's were kind of a weird time for me.  I was still sort of obsessing over vampires (after getting into the Vampire: The Masquerade role playing game, reading Anne Rice and Poppy Z. …

Kill Bill Vol. 1
I would have to hesitate in calling any movie perfect, but if I were forced to pick one example of a flick that was near perfect for me, it would have to be Kill Bill Vol.'s 1&2.  These …

Grindhouse
   Pretty much, I've only really been excited about seeing one or two of the 50 or so major films that come out each year, probably for about the last decade. I think there's something …

Incredible Hulk
I thought it would be fun to see how this 1977 TV movie held up in comparison.         First off, the pilot movie DVD, which might still be available individually (it comes …

Batman (1989 film)
I was at the perfect age when Batman came out, 12, which was not so young that the movie was over my head and not quite old enough to start being jaded about adaptations.  More personally, I was …
reviewed Batman Returns. September 26, 2010
Batman Returns
Batman Returns is such a weird movie.  It sort of holds the opposite distinction than the first Batman for me because whereas I was the perfect age for the first film, when this came out in theaters …

Saturday the 14th
Before I broke down my mother's will and her kibosh on watching horror movies, there were only a handful of flicks that I was allowed to catch that fell into the horror vein.  One of these was …

Rad
   Growing up in the 80s I had a chance to catch the insane home video boom right from the beginning, what with all of the mom & pop rental shops opening and the initial flood of movie titles …

Watchmen
If there's one thing that I lament about the film-going experience as I get older, it's that I move further and further away from the boy who used to watch movies with unquestioning wide-eyed …

Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry
         The flick I watched last night was the 1974 road film, Dirty Mary Crazy Larry, which a co-worker of mine Danny, thought I might dig.  I think we have pretty …
Thriller -- A Cruel Picture (Thriller -- En Grym Film)
   As far as transgression cinema of the 70's is concerned, Thriller: A Cruel Picture (aka They Call Her One Eye) is probably one of the more disturbing if not one of the most influential …
reviewed Two Thousand Maniacs!. September 24, 2010
Two Thousand Maniacs!
   While doing some more research (I was reading Joe Bob Briggs amazing book Profoundly Disturbing) I came across a movie called Blood Feast. The film is sort of considered the grandfather of …
reviewed Last House on the Left. September 24, 2010
Last House on the Left
   I think this film has at its essence the true spirit of the horror film. To me this film is not entertaining, and it is one of only a handful of films that truly disturbed me, one that follows …
The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires
   I'd been meaning to see this flick for awhile (after hearing Ben and Dan talk about it on the Mondo Movie podcast), and today seemed like a great day to sit back and watch the very odd …
reviewed Lady Snowblood. September 24, 2010
Lady Snowblood
   I'll be honest, I rented this film strictly because I love Kill Bill and I was curious to see where Tarantino culled his imagery and ideas. I'm very glad I did, and it's why I …

Two-Lane Blacktop
I wasn't sure what to expect from the flick as I refused to read the blurb and wanted to go in completely unspoiled. The flick stars a young James Taylor (yeah, that James Taylor, the Fire and Rain, …
reviewed Odd Is on Our Side. September 03, 2010
Odd Is on Our Side
Sigh. I should have seen it from a mile away, but my biggest disappointment with Odd is On Our Side is that it reeks of being one giant cash grab. Apparently Koontz's character Odd Thomas, who has appeared …
Two Cents Plain: My Brooklyn Boyhood
Over the last decade it seems like the literary world has really embraced graphic storytelling as a medium. In particular there seems to be a huge influx in graphic memoirs, many of which are the work …

Drinking at the Movies
I've been following Julia Wertz's Fart Party comics for a few years and I have to say that I'm an addict. Though she's hesitant to call Fart Party a webcomic, that's how I discovered her stuff and it's …

Ricoh GR DIGITAL III 10 MP CCD Digital Camera with
First off, I like to approach my digital camera reviews from the point of view of a novice since I'm far from a tech geek and ease of use is typically on the top of my mind. That said, the Ricoh GR Digital …

Koko Be Good
Jen Wang's Koko Be Good is a strange nut to crack. First off, let me just say that the artwork is stunning and full of passion and whimsy. Wang's ability to translate emotion and movement into her characters …

The Serenaders are an awesome Atlanta trio managing to weave together intelligent satirical pop and irreverent romantic ballads with a really tight alt country twang that's infectious. They're helping …

21 Jump Street: The Complete Series (18-Disc Set)
I recently had the opportunity to review the Mill Creek re-issue of the Complete 21 Jump Street on DVD and I have to say that I'm both a little excited about it and a little bit bummed out. First off, …

Weber 121020 Go-Anywhere Charcoal Grill
I've been wanting to grill for years, but I've never had a convenient patio or deck as I've been an apartment dweller for the past 15 years. I finally did a little research and of the various small charcoal …
Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1980s, Vol. 1
I'm a huge cartoon nerd who in particular loves the Saturday morning and syndicated stuff from the 80s and it's unfortunate that I think I'm both the exact target audience for a release like this as well …
Moleskine Passions Recipe Journal
I'm a pretty big fan of Moleskine journals as it is, but this is the first time I've come into contact with a pre-lined/organized journal that was this well laid out. The basic idea behind the Moleskine …

Pure Bar Organic Bars 12 ea
I wasn't sure what to expect after oping the Pure Organic Cherry/Cashew Fruit & Nut Bar. It looked really dense, sticky and a bit darker than I expected. But even for my trepidation it tasted pretty darn …

Post-it Pop-up Notes Dispenser, 3 x 3 Inch,
I've been using pop-up Post-It note dispensers for awhile, and the typical design is geared towards a weighted table/desk top unit. This is my first experience with a wall mounted unit and I have to say …

LEGO: A Love Story
One of the most vivid sense memories I have from when I was a child is of lying on the floor and trying to pry apart two short, flat Lego planks (2x2s) with my teeth. The tips of my fingers kept painfully …

Dante's Inferno
Wow, where to start. Considering that the cartoon is based on the EA video game, I didn't go into the viewing expecting a strict adherence to the initial influence, Dante Alighieri's 14th century epic …

Wacky Packages
For the last 10 years I've been dreaming of a book just like Abrams' Wacky Packages archive. Like a lot of kids growing up in the 70s and 80s I had a huge collection of Topps branded sticker cards, from …
