In a world without electricity, this will not work.

Latest projects- Update

You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t written a blog in almost two months. That wasn’t really by design, it just happened. The reason why isn’t at all interesting: Life happens and it just takes you away from things. This doesn’t mean that I am gone forever, not at all, as I… Read more »

This is what it sounds like, when Tek’s cry: Subsurface Circular

I was on Twitter when someone tweeted an image of a robot on a subway car. The design of the bot grabbed me, but the slick U.I. is what pulled me into the underworld that is Subsurface Circular.

How not to make coffee

If there is one thing I cannot stand, it’s a bad cup of coffee.

Blade Runner 2049 trailer #2

This isn’t a think piece or a prediction article where I theory craft the hell out of this film. You want that, go somewhere else.

Hoarding and zombie beer: How big beer is trying to strong-arm its way to victory

Beer is probably one of the most refreshing drinks to have on a hot night. Cold, crisp, it’s ancient recipe perfected through the generations as each round of humanity takes a shot at making the nectar of the gods. I am not going to tell you what to drink here, I’ll leave that for your… Read more »

I’ve never finished Dune

And I don’t like it. I know, we’re not friends anymore.

Let’s talk about The Dark Tower trailer

Sooo, this portal to awesome just posted online.

Was the drought really that bad?

Winter was wonderful as water fell from the sky in California. Most appreciated it while many sheered, “When did I move to Seattle?” Just know, we hate those people, they don’t represent all of us and they have been sent off on an ice float. It is said that they shouted, “When did I move… Read more »

Happy sad day

Today’s been an odd one.

  • Grefe Came From The Swamp

    Even in the world of “B” filmmakers from Florida, William Grefe is not an “A” list name. First and foremost in most exploitation film fans are David F. Friedman, creator of the modern gore film with Blood Feast to his credit, and Doris Wishman, director of Nude on the Moon, one of the first “nudie… Read more »

  • Comparing the book to the movie: The Martian

    So I did a huge no-no this year. I watched a movie based on a book BEFORE I READ THE BOOK! I’m still dodging the literary police force. While this is normally something I’d never do I am glad that I did it. I hadn’t heard anything about “The Martian” by Andy Weir before I… Read more »

  • The wages of ‘The Wages of Fear’

    Item under review: Sorcerer Blu-Ray Much like the titular truck, William Friedkin’s film Sorcerer was destined for doom. A high profile remake of the French classic The Wages of Fear, Friedkin’s film had the grand cosmic misfortune of opening a mere one month into Star Wars’ game changing blockbuster run. Theatergoers stayed away in droves… Read more »

  • The Nicer Guys: Where to go once you let Shane Black’s The Nice Guys into your life

    If you are reading this post, intended as a supplement to our fearless leader’s glowing review of Shane Black’s The Nice Guys, I’m going to assume a couple things. First I am going to assume you are in the minority of cinemagoers who chose to watch The Nice Guys over seeing The Angry Birds movie or… Read more »

  • Why “The Nice Guys” is a film you need to see

    We live in interesting times: Self-driving cars, tiny computers in our pockets that can make phone calls but no one uses them for that anymore, and presidential candidates that are either puppets or Satan himself; and yet movie theaters for the most part are the least interesting places to be. All of them are serving… Read more »

  • Item under review: Trailer Trauma 2: Drive-In Monsterama Blu-Ray

    Label: Garagehouse Pictures Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Trailer-Trauma-%20Drive–%20Monsterama-Blu-%20ray/dp/B01E4U0LRI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1463865221&%20sr=8-1&keywords=trailer+trauma+2 Do today’s trailers reveal too much? Too many problematic spoilers? Perhaps, but they have nothing on the grungy, wildly entertaining trailers from the past. The kind of trailer that would turn up in the drive-ins, fleapits, and grindhouses of yore. Or in our modern era, the kind of trailer that… Read more »

  • Why I stopped playing Uncharted 4

    It’s 5 AM and I am up due to a thought that has upset me personally: I don’t like Uncharted 4. For me, the Uncharted series was one of escapism and fantastic adventure that was the closest I was going to get to being Indiana Jones. It felt like you were in the middle of a… Read more »

  • Loving on Captain America Civil War without giving away spoilers

    So I saw Captain America: Civil War  and oh my lord I am not okay. If you haven’t seen it yet you need to. It was fantastic. I’ve been gushing about it all weekend with my friends but I refuse to be the A-hole that divulges spoilers about amazing movies so I want to share… Read more »

  • The fascinating world of ‘Crazy Rich Asians’

      It is the time of the year when many of us are searching for one of the highlights of our year: the perfect summer read. I normally delve into my stacks of books to find what I will be enjoying on my warm Saturdays but I think this year I may have read a… Read more »
