Rabid Genius: Harlan Ellison Eulogized

Jul 02, 2018 No Comments

Author Harlan Ellison died in his sleep on June 28th at the age of 84.  I’ve written and deleted that sentence about two-hundred times over the past 48 hours.  I have no idea what to follow it with, because I have no idea how to sum him up.  There’s no clever literary trick to summarize […]

Hereditary Movie Review

Jun 26, 2018 No Comments

My husband and I decided to take in an afternoon showing of Ari Aster’s Hereditary recently, curious to see if it lived up to the hype of being called the scariest movie ever, or to see if it was deserving of the hate that it’s been getting since its release. Admittedly, the trailers for this […]

The Terror Season 1 Review

May 29, 2018 No Comments

As one AMC juggernaut sees its ratings dip, along comes another series that just may very well blow all other series out of the water (no pun intended). The Terror recently wrapped up its 10-episode first season. It’s rare for a show to start off with a bang and not only ride that momentum but […]

Dead List Movie Review

May 23, 2018 No Comments

Hollywood is more about restaurants than marquees. Most wannabe actors make their jing slinging hash and waiting tables, not emoting before the cameras. Acting gigs are scarce and the competition is fierce. And then there’s the matter of who you know. As buddy Sam (voice of Brad Gage) says in a call to aspiring thespian […]
