To make up for the trauma of Fantastic Four (2015), tonight we watched Housebound, a quirky, laugh-out-loud-funny, and really creepy horror film from New Zealand, directed by Gerard Johnstone. This was a delightful film with wonderfully developed characters and very human relationships that were ...

<i>Fantastic Four</i> (2015): Just Don't
These people had careers once. Just back from Fantastic Four, which is (unbelievably) even worse than Fox's 2005 attempt. Not only it it an insult to the source material, it is an insult to the medium of film itself. Bad CG, bad acting, bad editing, appalli...

Story
Tagline
Reader. Writer. TV Watcher. Historian.
Introduction
I'm not sure why it took me so long to realize that I could combine my life-long passions for reading, writing, television, film, and history into a means of taking Joseph Campbell's advice to "follow your bliss," but I think I'm beginning to finally figure it out.

An academic late-bloomer, I can usually be found roaming the halls and grounds of higher education or commuting between those halls and my student garret during the week, or all the way home on the weekends where I am reunited with my wife Dale; a goofy shepherd-lab mix named Spooky; and a devious grey-scale cat called Chiana.
