Starmageddon: For the Love of Spock, Rogue One, and Carrie Fisher
Need to catch up some more on reporting recent podcast activity. And by "recent" I mean the last three months. It was a sporadic autumn for  Starmageddon , but we did have some good discussions that you should totally listen to. In Episode 38, we discussed ...

6 Movies I Didn't Like from 2016
Today, we start counting down all the 2016 movies I watched from worst to best. Here's the bottom of the barrel. 50. Mechanic: Resurrection 2016 was a year of ill-advised sequels that no one asked for. I managed to avoid a few of those (like Independence Da...

24 Movies I Missed from 2016
I did pretty well with 2016 movies. In fact, my list of seen movies should be double the list of ones that I missed (assuming that I'm able to catch up on a couple of more this week like I plan). But I did miss a couple dozen that I wanted to see, so here t...

Out with the Old
For a lot of folks, 2016 can't end quickly enough. And I'm not going to argue otherwise. It's been a dark year. There have been more deaths (both celebrity and personal) than seems possible to deal with. And the US Presidential election accentuated how divi...

Cthulhu Christmas Classics: The Festival [Guest Post]
By GW Thomas I have been re-experiencing HP Lovecraft recently. I read pretty much everything he ever wrote back in the late 1980s when I was obsessed with the  Call of Cthulhu role-playing game. I can’t complain. It gave me my first non-fiction and fiction...

“More of Gravy than of Grave” | Michael Caine (1992)
Index of other entries in The Christmas Carol Project The Muppets use CG to provide a great transformation scene with the knocker. No superimposed faces here; we get to see the knocker slowly morph into Marley's face - or a Marley's face - before our eyes. ...

Movie-Watching in 2016
Every January for the last few years I've been counting down all the movies I watched from the previous year. I'm gonna do that again, but before then, I thought it would be fun to look briefly at all the movies I watched last year that weren't from 2016. A...

“More of Gravy than of Grave” | Patrick Stewart (1999)
