Eye of Sauron Seen over the Antartica! (or maybe its the sun)

By | February 1st, 2018|0 Comments

BREAKING NEWS: Sauron, the lord of darkness - also known as the Necromancer - long thought dead has reappeared over Antarctica. Using his go-to guise of a large disembodied eye, Sauron has been seen gathering followers from the surrounding area. As the area is frozen, desolate tundra the followers have been limited so far to a handful of scientists and [...]

Delta Redux: A Voyager Rewatch: Investigations

By | January 15th, 2018|0 Comments

In the late 80s and early 90s there was this trend that I like to call “the camcorder episode” and almost every show did it regardless of genre. A camcorder episode was either entirely or partially shot from the point of view of a camera eyepiece as if you the viewer were filming the episode. The shot itself was [...]

Obligatory Best of List for the Dumpster Fire Year That was 2017

By | January 1st, 2018|0 Comments

2017 is officially over and frankly, good riddance. Among the vast amount of awful this past year brought we saw a once lauded political institution (know colloquially as “The United States”) become a world-wide punchline and a seemingly endless stream of celebrities and other men in positions of power get outed as sexual predators (so much so that whenever I [...]

Reckoning Upon God: Frankenstein (Monster Memories)

By | October 31st, 2017|0 Comments

Frankenstein is one of the few classic monster movies that I did not see on a Saturday afternoon on a UHF channel.  No, this film was played in prime time. It was a special movie-of-the-week. A  re-showing of a classic film on “regular” TV. It was a big deal. I sat with my mother, my brother, a few aunts [...]

Even the Moon is Frightened of Me: The Invisible Man (Monster Memories)

By | October 26th, 2017|0 Comments

An invisible man must be one of the more bizarre choices for a monster. First of all it’s not really a monster, not in the classical sense anyway. He is, after all, just a man. A deranged man, sure, but just a man nonetheless. There is nothing supernatural about him, no unnatural resurrection or gypsy curse. In fact one [...]

Even a Man Who is Pure in Heart: The Wolf-Man (Monster Memories)

By | October 24th, 2017|0 Comments

By 1941 Universal had been making monster movies for over a decade. It had now become a well-oiled machine and while not quite formulaic just yet was well on its way to becoming so. The Wolf-Man still retains the moodiness and the harsh shadows emblematic of German Expressionism that characterizes the earlier films. But gone now are the jarring [...]

I Dislike Being Touched: The Mummy (Monster Memories)

By | October 19th, 2017|0 Comments

The Mummy from 1932 is a classic. A flawed classic for sure, but a classic nonetheless. There are parts of this film that are truly brilliant and there are parts that are…well…not. To be honest this is one film that I have had mixed feeling for. I want to love it. I do. But then this pesky thing called a [...]

Memory & Fog: The Impermanence of Objects, 3rd Meditation

By | October 18th, 2017|0 Comments

Once, a long time ago, I told you I would love you forever. I never intended to lie to you. I am back in San Francisco, the place where we once lived together. It has been … what now? 15 years? Or is it 20? I don’t remember things the way that I should. I can’t remember the last time [...]

I Mistrust My Own Judgement: Dracula (Monster Memories)

By | October 17th, 2017|0 Comments

Tod Browning’s 1931 adaptation of Dracula is the granddaddy of them all, the film the launched the Classic Monster films of Universal. The Universal cinematic universe if you will. I try not to judge these old films by modern standards or how a film has come to be perceived over the decades. I attempt, as much as possible, to [...]

Delta Redux: A Voyager Rewatch: Lifesigns

By | October 12th, 2017|0 Comments

Hooray, a Doctor-centric episode! So far in the series the Doctor has been – to my mind – the most dynamic and genuinely interesting character on the show. He has shown the most range, from humor to anger to compassion, and has been the one character on the program to show real growth and depth. And the episodes to [...]
