400 Days

Is it just me or were the last few years particularly great for science fiction fans? Last week I viewed and wrote about Arrival, and this week brings 400 Days, a mind bending psychedelic head trip of a genre mashing success. You wouldn’t know if it you blindly went by the folks reviewing at IMBD, […]

In celebration of the Arrival of an excellent film

I have to hand it to Netflix for once. I don’t generally get much use out of their predictive algorithms, but when Arrival was suggested for my DVD queue I took the bait and am very grateful I did. I hadn’t heard of the film before so I went into it my favorite way – […]

You’re all a bunch of idiots – Part I

Ok, rant time! Let’s talk about genres today, because some of you are getting things so mixed up if I don’t straighten you out now, we’ll never get things back where they belong. And, actually, none of you are idiots. I’m preaching to the choir here. The idiots aren’t reading this. But if you know […]
