FROM DALEKS TO DAVINCI

Just a couple of weeks ago Christopher Eccleston turned many a geek head when he announced that he was leaving the sucessful new Dr. Who show at the end of the current 13 episode season (or series, as they call it in Old Blighty). Could his decision have something to do with a former resident … Continue reading

BENIOFF GETS FERAL WITH WOLVERINE

David Benioff is not just a screenwriter – he’s one of my favorite modern literary types, and that’s just after one novel and one collection of short stories. While I would like to see him hitting the word processor to get another novel out there, it’s tough to deny that it’s good to know that … Continue reading

TRAILER: SAVE THE GREEN PLANET

Just this morning I saw an incredible movie called Save the Green Planet. It’s a Korean film from 2003 that’s only now getting an American release, and it’s stunning and bizarre and funny and sad and gory and weird. I’m describing it as King of Comedy meets They Live: A man is convinced that aliens … Continue reading

SCARIEST DOCUMENTARY EVER?

What the hell is a "horror documentary?" Seriously, I have no idea what that even possibly means. At first I thought a "horror documentary" was a documentary about horror. But then I found out that the "horror documentary" in question is about early serial killing pioneer HH Holmes. Holmes stalked his prey at the Chicago World … Continue reading

SET VISIT – THE AMITYVILLE HORROR #2

(CONTINUED FROM PART ONE HERE) It may have been in Kosar’s draft…or Sheldon Turner’s re-write…or Michael Bay’s pass – though I’m guessing he merely added the sequence where the Japanese drop the torpedo through the roof… I kid Michael Bay because I love Michael Bay. Sincerely. It may have been Andrew Douglas’s call. It may … Continue reading

CLONE WARS STRIKE ONLINE

I didn’t catch any of the first Star Wars: Clone Wars animated shorts on the Cartoon Network, opting instead to wait for the eventual DVD release, and I’m glad I did because getting them in one somewhat cohesive package was a great way to see them. Unsurprisingly, I found them more entertaining than Episodes I … Continue reading
