Where will Mads Mikkelson (HANNIBAL), Jon Bernthal and Scott Wilson (THE WALKING DEAD), and Linda Blair (THE EXORCIST) all be this weekend? Hanging out with me! If you’re within driving distance of Indianapolis, I’d love to see you at HorrorHound Indy this weekend. I’ll be signing books with some awesome Samhain Horror authors (like John […]Read more "It’s Time for…HORRORHOUND WEEKEND!!!"
This is going to be short. Why? Because I’m tired and I want to go read. Enough of a reason for ya? Either way, here goes… I liked it. I haven’t read the novel, so I didn’t have my teeth clenched going into the film (How dare they change the book?! Hollywood NEVER does that!). […]Read more "World War Z: An Incredibly Short Review"
I have a longer post about THE BIG LEBOWSKI that’ll be up soon, but for now, I thought I’d share my favorite six quotes (yes, the number six is completely arbitrary) from this amazing movie that few people talk about. I’ve had to forego about fifty of my favorite quotes (some famous, some not) because […]Read more "Top Six Underrated Quotes from THE BIG LEBOWSKI"
I saw this outstanding movie last night and wanted to share a few thoughts about it. When a movie is as big an event as this one is, it becomes challenging to say something new and original about it. After all, if everyone’s writing about it, why bother? My answer? Because the movie is important. […]Read more "Why You Should Watch THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Right Now"
So I’m a little late to the party! I don’t mind though. I’ve always been a late bloomer. I watched this flick on the treadmill over a period of two weeks. Yep, it took me four runs of around twenty-five minutes each to finish it. You got a problem with that? I’m getting back into […]Read more "From Dusk Till Dawn (yep, the movie everyone else saw sixteen years ago)"
I’d like to say I always undertake a complicated process of research and study, trial and error, and a dozen other acts of preparation before I compose a blog post (Warning: This is gonna be short). But the fact is, a lot of the time, I blog about what’s on my mind at that exact […]Read more "The Fifty-Five Minute Mark of How to Train Your Dragon"
Mark Sieber, proprietor of the Horror Drive-In and all-around great dude, recommended this film a few months ago. Sadly, because I live in a place where wonderful movies often have short runs (if they run at all), this one was here and gone before I knew it had come. Midnight in Paris won’t win Best […]Read more "Midnight in Paris"
Frazer Lee is one talented dude. He also happens to be hard-working, versatile, and very down-to-earth. Talking to him, you’d never guess that he wrote the screenplay for Panic Button, which is only one of the most talked-about suspense movies of the year. He also wrote a book called The Lamplighters (published by Don D’Auria […]Read more "An Interview with Frazer Lee, Author of The Lamplighters"
Okay, before you get mad at me, I need to tell you this isn’t a post about Dave Mustaine or anything else Megadeth-related (at least those aren’t the primary topics). If you clicked on it for that reason, well, here’s the video for my favorite song by the group, a video I’m certain used to […]Read more "Megamind and Megadeth"
Time for an embarrassing confession (and really, what is a blog for if not oversharing?). I’m not proud of this, and I realize how silly and stupid I’m going to sound but… I’m a sucker for the British. Specifically, I’m a sucker for the way they talk. Yeah, I know there are probably different dialects […]Read more "Dog Soldiers or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the British"
