The Wonderful World of Blogging

Back in 2010 I started my first blog. I wrote a minute post and published it. I then ignored it for almost exactly one year. I quite literally had forgotten all about it.  I had so many other things going on in my life that I didn’t have time to post to a blog. I… Read More ›

The Amazing Spider-Man Returns…Again

With the 2002 release of Spider-Man with Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst as ‘Spidey‘ and his love interest, I felt that Sam Raimi had done justice to Stan “The Man” Lee’s comic creation. Two more films quickly followed and a fourth was rumoured to be in the works. Then, nothing. The scuttlebutt was that differences of opinion between Maguire… Read More ›

The Devils Rejects (2005): Zombie Western Horror

Rob Zombie wrote and directed this sequel to House of a 1000 Corpses. After the financial success of Corpses Lions Gate Entertainment were eager for Zombie to make another film. Rob had an idea for a sequel while filming Corpses about the sheriff’s brother coming after the Firefly clan in an act of deadly revenge. With the… Read More ›

Grave Encounters (2011): Great Start…Grave Finish

Written and directed by  The Vicious Brothers, Grave Encounters  is their maiden voyage as it were into the film world. Using the obligatory horror genre as their entrance, I am sure that the idea worked really well in script and storyboard form. I really wanted to like this film. The beginning of the film looked great. Hell, the… Read More ›

Suffer the Little Children

Most people, myself included, love looking at videos on the net about babies. YouTube is full of them. They all make you laugh or go “aww.” They are almost as popular as the animal videos. You know the ones I mean. Cute kittens and cats and dogs and puppies. These also make you go “aww”… Read More ›

Max Payne 3 – Conclusions

Okay, so I finished Max Payne 3 last night, well early this morning, and I had a little think about the game. I was perhaps a bit harsh on the game, in my ‘first thoughts‘ on it. Because all said, it was a fun play through. Now admittedly I’m not a Max Payne fan. I had played… Read More ›

True Grit

I was sitting here perusing my old blog posts when I suddenly got the image of John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn in my head. As I sat there mentally studying Rooster, I thought of the title of the film. True Grit. More images came to mind. Grits, obviously, the great southern delicacy that I can… Read More ›

House of a 1000 Corpses (2003): Horror Zombie Style

Released in 2003, House of a 1000 Corpses had actually been sitting on a shelf since it had been made in 2000. Studios were reluctant to release it as they were unsure of the rating it would receive from the film board. Corpses marks Rob Zombies directorial debut, he also wrote the film, and for… Read More ›

What if I Wrote a Blog and No One Read It…

2012 has been a year of stiff competition. I still do several blog-posts per day and my views vary accordingly. I say accordingly, because there are a lot of factors that dictate how many, if any, views your blog will receive on any given day. For example, we have the 2012 Olympics going on just down… Read More ›

Assassin’s Creed III – Meh With a Capital M

I must be one of the only people in the world who is not excited about the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed III. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike the Assassin’s Creed franchise. I’ve just gotten bored with it. When Assassin’s Creed first came out in 2006 I was swept away by the stunning graphics and… Read More ›
