He’s a fun thing a friend passed on to me, contributor J Blake. Pick 10 movies. They don’t have to be good, or groundbreaking. You don’t even have to like them anymore. But these 10 movies are films that really sculpted you into who you are today, and really had an affect on you growing up. [...]

My favorite time of the year brings all kinds of things. For me, I love the old TV Christmas Specials that for the most part, are luckily still aired. But a couple of years back I was in England and my mind was blown away by an advert which, I think is almost completely unknown back here [...]

I’m really at a loss for words on what to say after viewing the new trailer for the “Official Sequel” to the 1983 classic A Christmas Story. I want to be gung-ho for A Christmas Story 2, but it really seems to be pandering to the fans out there, only trying to capitalize on the glory [...]

A whole series of bangs, in fact, along with the greatest threat the Doctor has ever faced: a room filled with every Dalek from the series’ [...]

Okay, over the past week or so, my worst fears have started to be confirmed. It seems the world is starting to go to pot, and a possible zombie apocalypse could be upon us. Why do I think so, you ask? Well, just ask the Center for Disease Control.

Now I haven’t written on here for quite a while, but when I read this story on the Fox News website this morning my first reaction was “Holy Mother of God”—my worst nightmare has come true. After doing more research I learned that on May 8th Chapakhowa Nagaon, a small village near Sadiya, India, was invaded and attacked by an army of venomous spiders, [...]

Real life conspired to delay my gratification, but yesterday, ten days after its nationwide American release, I finally saw The Avengers. By now, reams* have been written about how good the movie is, how thoroughly it entertains on multiple levels thanks to its snappy Whedonesque dialogue, its insightful Whedonesque explorations of character relationships, and its [...]
