THOUGHT CLOUDS: Marvel Season 1 (comic review)

THOUGHT CLOUDS: Marvel Season 1 (comic review)

(This review originally appeared on the Spirit Blade Underground Podcast.) This post, I’m not reviewing one book — I‘m reviewing a series of books. A series of graphic novels, actually. Marvel’s Season One. Some background — in my first Thought Clouds review, I reviewed Batman Earth One, part of a series of DC Comics graphic novel reboots set in their own universe and retelling early stories. Both of DC’s Earth One books were New York Times best-sellers, … Read entire article »

MOVIE REVIEW: Total Recall (2012)

MOVIE REVIEW: Total Recall (2012)

Total Recall is an interesting movie. As an effects movie,  especially as a sci-fi effects movie, it is fantastic. The special effects, and the world those effects create, are brilliant. As science fiction, with its look forward into future technology and culture, it is fantastic. Some of the ideas in this movie just make sense, as far as things like what will “smart phones” look like? Something tells me that we aren’t too far off from the … Read entire article »

I was familiar enough with the character and the concepts, because of fond memories finding it on PBS while channel surfing Saturday afternoons as … Read entire article »

THOUGHT CLOUDS: Harlan Ellison’s Phoenix Without Ashes (Comic Review)

PHOENIX WITHOUT ASHES Harlan Ellison, writer; Alan Robinson, artist This review of a graphic novel starts with a review of a TV series from 1973, so bear with me. When I was but a lad, I went and saw Star Wars on the big screen and wanted more. On the small screen, in my very own home, I was able to watch Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers. And, living in Canada, I was able to watch, every once … Read entire article »

REVIEW: William Shatner’s “The Captains”

REVIEW: William Shatner’s “The Captains”

  I’m a big fan of William Shatner. If we ever do a podcast to tackle the classic “Kirk vs. Picard”, there will be no question what side I fall on. I will listen to opposing arguments, but I will not change my mind. (Gauntlet thrown, Dr. Jayce.) I enjoy watching Shatner in Star Trek, in Twilight Zone (the series and the movie), in Boston Legal. I’m a fan of Shatner as an actor. As a presence, … Read entire article »
