From another side

So there was this time that DC Comics put out a wondrous single issue of THE DOOM PATROL, which was written by Grant Morrison at the time. And it featured art by Richard Case (the usual artist on the book for the bulk of Morrison’s run), Jamie Hewlett (who went on to design The Gorillaz […]

INTO DARKNESS

Okay, here’s the ground rules. 1) Spoilers for STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS. Stop reading if this is an issue. 2) I didn’t like it and am not likely to change my mind if you get in my face about it. Right. Either you’re still reading or you’re not.   So, INTO DARKNESS. Not a very […]

WORLD WAR Z – THE TENTH MAN

You all know that the miracle isn’t that great films are made, right? The miracle is that movies get finished at all in any semblance of completion much less take our brains and hearts anywhere worth going. Or at least let us be entertained for a couple of hours.

RAGNAROK SUMMER

ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK

Less a review of ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and more an appreciation.

Conversation Fear – Crying for the Scorpion

As originally posted at Dark, But Shining some seven months after it had officially closed its doors. Old ghosts and all. Oh, you didn’t think I’d let Halloween pass unnoticed, did you? And after all, horror is where it finds you, where you’re not expecting it. And where better than the abandoned field, the neglected […]

Conversation Fear Special – Chinatown: The Monster

As originally posted during All Hallow’s Month, 2006 at Dark, But Shining. If you believe that horror film must be dictated by the splash of scarlet, the hockey mask, the primordial monster or the glimmering of a machete, you should stop reading right now. Because I’m here to talk about horror film and I’m here […]

CLOVERFIELD: BLACK METALLIC ROAR

CLOVERFIELD vs. Highway 62. WHO WILL BE LEFT STANDING?
