Cable Box Confessions: TOURIST TRAP

Posted by:

“Dad, will you get the Movie Channel for me?”

Thus began my education in slasher cinema, a rite of passage familiar to many a 12-year-old boy back in the early 80’s. Mind you, I wasn’t imploring my dad to order me a subscription to TMC. I just wanted him to do that little trick he had learned quite by accident one day as he channel surfed and discovered a flaw in how TV providers protected their premium content. ...

You Remember That New Book I Promised?

Posted by:

Yeah, yeah–it’s been forever since I sneakily announced a new book was in the works. And yes, it’s also been forever since I last posted anything here on the site. But life, being what it is, has a tendency to get in the way of things like blogging and whatnot–and so does writing and editing a novel!

On that note, though, I’m happy to announce that the work is complete and the new book is now available on Continue Reading

Trek or Treat!

Posted by:

Happy Halloween, Hammerheads!  Okay, I probably don’t have near enough fans to actually assign them all a cute nickname–but you’e out there, somewhere, maybe wondering why the hell I haven’t posted in a while.  And even if you’re not wondering, I’m gonna tell ya!  I’ve been–er, busy?  Yeah, that’s the ticket!

Actually, I have been pretty busy lately, doing my contributor gig over at The Resurgent and—don’t keel over from a heart attack when I tell you this–working on ...

Avengers: Infinity War or Thanos: The Hand of Fate?

Posted by:

After taking my son to a sold-out showing on Saturday, I can personally attest that Avengers: Infinity War really throws down the gauntlet—both figuratively, and in the case of arch-villain Thanos, quite literally. Armed a metal glove forged from the same stuff as Thor’s hammer, Thanos is on a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones—gems formed at the moment of creation, which embody the elemental powers of the universe. With them, he can wield those powers as his own, ...

The Pro-Life Heart of Blade Runner 2049

Posted by:

The big questions of life—how long we have, how memory defines us, what it means to be human—figure prominently in the Blade Runner universe, first introduced to cinemas by Ridley Scott back in 1982.  Working loosely from the trippy Philip K. Dick novel  Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, Scott jettisoned most of Dick’s hippy-dippy drug culture subtext and instead focused on a visual style in which the setting drove the narrative just as much as the characters.  In this fully-realized world, ...

New Podcast! Star Trek Discovery Ups Its Game

Posted by:

After posting my not-so-enthusiastic review of the Star Trek Discovery tw-part pilot episode, I wasn’t exactly sure of what to expect out of episode number three.  Would it be as plodding and muddled as the initial offering, or would the writers clean up their act and deliver something better?  Well, I’m very happy to report that after stumbling out of the gate, Discovery seems to have quickly found its footing.  For starters, we actually get to see the titular ship–and we also ...
