Nightfall

Pardon this mini-post-slash-rant, but enough is enough! When the hell are we going to get a decent big screen Nightfall? I refer of course to the Isaac Asimov classic, long version with Robert Silverberg. Wiki here. As much rubbish as makes it to the big screen yet there have been, so far as I can […]

Showdown somewhere in Missouri

This post will contain what would traditionally be called spoilers, but to imply anything could spoil Showdown at Area 51 is like saying anything can spoil curdled milk.

Long live the eighties… Well some of them

I’ve recently been re-watching some of my favorite films from my youth with a careful eye towards how they appeal (or don’t) to me now. So without further ado… First and foremost, people have the Indiana Jones thing a little backwards. I refer specifically to the attacks on Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (in line […]
