Tor.com is current in the middle of their steampunk fortnight. It includes short stories, blog posts regarding different aspects of the genre, reviews, and more. Also, @janoda on Twitter pointed out that there are more steampunk romances listed here (Goodreads link), including some that I don’t have on the steampunk romance week roundup. And did […]
So I came into the middle of Beowulf (2007), and was trying very, very hard to get past the uncanny valley to decide whether I’d like the movie or not. Then, Beowulf took the offer that Grendel’s mother gave him. For a second, I thought about twittering a billion WTF?s! What is THIS??? Then I […]
From a review of the movie The Clan of the Cave Bear at IMDb, this is the fourth paragraph of an otherwise straightforward review. Some critics scoff at the primative community portrayed here, but it in fact is very accurate. In the DVD commentary we learn that much of the design for this film came […]
I’ve got a post up at Odd Shots featuring the trailers of several paranormal-ish movies that I’m looking forward to (once I get caught up with my writing.) I’m not online much, and I expect that this blog will be pretty quiet through the end of February, but I’ll always be at Odd Shots on […]
My love for the original mini-series is pretty well-documented on this blog and elsewhere. I’m going to give the new series a few more weeks, mostly out of nostalgia (and because I like some of the actors). But, honestly, the first misstep to me was using the ‘V’ as a symbol for the aliens and […]
My apologies to everyone who can’t look at YouTube videos. I didn’t intend to have two YouTube posts in two days, and I have no idea why I ended up on YouTube, looking up Bob Ross at midnight. I know there was a link that took me there, that there was a reason I wanted […]
So. This isn’t a review, because the more I think about this movie, the less happy I am with it, so I’m going to stop thinking too much about it. This is one of those movies that I mostly enjoyed while I was watching it (especially the first part, before I realized that nothing I’d […]
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! *sob sob* Screw you, Fox.
I just read that Iron Sky is coming soon, a movie about Nazis who have been hiding on the moon, waiting for their chance to return. And I blogged before about Dead Snow, which releases next month — and is about zombie Nazis in the Alps. Here’s the teaser for Iron Sky: And here’s the […]
Five hours ago, if you’d asked me what movie I’d NEEDED to see this year, and which one I’d go see over any other, it would have been Terminator. No longer. I hope to god it plays in IMAX. (thanks to Kresley Cole on Twitter)
I twittered about this last week, but recently I watched a movie that I expected to be fun in a B-grade, horror flick kind of way, and ended up better than I expected. Not only were there some scenes at the beginning that actually got my heart racing and my nails biting into my palms […]
Not lesbian slayers who kill vampires; the vampires are lesbians. And this is definitely on my short list of Movies To See this year.
