I really enjoyed “World Enough and Time”, to-day’s new episode of Doctor Who, though it certainly wasn’t the most cheerful episode and one could argue there’s not much that’s new about it. But sometimes that’s a good thing.
I’m a big fan of Wonder WOman, have read the comic for years. The DC movie version of her doesn’t line up to what I wanted to see in a film, so I put off seeing it until I could disconnect my expectations. I finally saw it last night. Overall, it was adequate. Could have used a good editing to tighten it up, it…
What an incredibly pretty season finale of American Gods. Directed by Floria Sigismondi, who I first heard of in the 90s when she made Marilyn Manson music videos, this Eastery Easter episode was about as far from Antichrist Superstar as you could get.
On this week’s episode of Face Off the two contestant effects shops must create alien hives. Which team will work with singular vision and which will be working like a bunch of individuals? Results ahead.
To-day brings a new chapter of my infrequently updated web comic, The Devils Dekpa and Deborah. Our heroines discourse with the supernatural and the worse for wear in this sea faring adventure comic. Enjoy.
Last night’s new Twin Peaks may have spent more time actually in Twin Peaks than any previous episode of the new season and it was an exceptionally fast paced episode. With many satisfying developments and answers it also presented some new questions, and it did both these things in the understated manner that makes…
If you saw the end of last week’s episode of Fear the Walking Dead then you could probably guess what this week’s episode would be about. Someone has a chance at a new start and a new face is added to the cast.
Why did it take me so long to see Alien: Covenant? I suppose because my friends who saw it seemed disappointed and the response to it otherwise seems to be lukewarm. The negative reaction to Prometheus seemed better because it was the kind of whining you hear from fans when a movie did something right and it was out…
Another member of the Babylon 5 cast has left for the great unknown beyond the Rim.
Fantastic character actor from Animal House to Babylon 5. On B5 a loyal attache that also provided some humor and calmness to his boss.
I saw the following at a thrift shop for $3.99.
A little historical perspective isn’t too painful, is it? To-day’s new episode of Doctor Who, “Eaters of Light”, did something I wished the show did more often—it incorporated aspects of history into its plot and argument in a way that also potentially educates the viewer. This was part of the original series concept,…
Ahead of to-morrow’s new Doctor Who, I decided to revisit Survival, the 1989 serial written by Rona Munro, who also wrote to-morrow’s new episode, making her the only writer from the classic series to be hired to write for the relaunched series. Survival also happens to be the final story of the classic series, not a…
A few years ago, this guy by the name of Aristotle wrote a book called “Poetics”. Oddly enough, it wasn’t about poets, or poetry, or even Edgar Allen Poe. It was, instead, about the nature of storytelling and theatre, and the power they have to make us better people.
The first of the short films from Neill Blomkamp’s Oats Studios, Rakka, is up on YouTube. Starring Sigourney Weaver, Rakka is a story of an alien invasion and the human resistance to it. The video is also available on Steam for free and you can purchase video files, concept art, 3D assets and such.
A week or so ago, my 7-year-old son turned to me, kind of out of the blue, and said:
I think its fairly good casting although wasn’t XMen 3 loosely based on Dark Phoenix and didn’t original story take place in mid80s not 1991? Kudos for trying it appears to stick with original storyline at least.
If you love XMen comics this appears to be a possible genesis. Story is He That Hath Wings published in 1938 and written by Edmund Hamilton. Its about the life of a baby born with wings due to an electrical hit his parents took that modified the genes for the upcoming baby.
It seems like it was just a couple of months ago since last season’s finale but here we go with Season 12 of Face Off. The twist for this season is that the twelve contestants are divided into two effects shops competing as teams against each other. The first challenge? Werewolves. Results ahead.
