Adam West (19 September, 1928 – 9 June, 2017)

By now many of you will know that the most famous Batman of all time has passed away. No, Raven, not Ben Affleck. He’s still alive and well… maybe. Who cares? No, it is with an acid reflux filled heart that we say “Farewell!” to the great Adam West. Now Adam West was not the first to play Batman (That went to Lewis Gilbert Wilson -28 January, 1920 – 9 August, 2000.) Nor was Mr. West the most successful of all Batmen (That would be Christian “The Angry Man” Bale.) But he was the most popular and long-lived live-action Batman ever! Now this iconic sixties series was the epitome of the “Groovy Age.” It was, for those that have not […]

Starship Troopers

 

 Well my dear friends, our time is drawing to an end. In a little over five weeks I’ll be gone forever. Well, I’ll pop back in from time-to-time, but for the most part you’ll be stuck with Wookiee and his giggly boobs from now on. But before I leave you I’ll attempt to knock out a few more articles. — Now anyone with an internet connection will have heard the news that there is a new Starship Troopers film on the way. Now before we look at the trailer we’ll have a quick look at the history of this beloved franchise. Our franchise began in 1958-1959, when American author Robert A. Heinlein (7 July, 1907 – 8 May, 1988) took […]

Westworld (Series Review)

 

 A large number of people adore cowboy films. A vast number of people love sci-fi. A goodly gang of people delight in thrillers. And a few people love all three of them combined into a single show. Welcome to the robot filled Wild West. Welcome to the madness that is Westworld. The show is based on the book of the same name written by the legendary Michael Crichton (23 October, 1942 – 4 November, 2008) and loosely based on the films ‘Westworld’ (1973) and ‘Futureworld’ (1976).  The series is set in the near future and focusses on a Wild West theme park that allows wealthy humans to interact with robotic facsimiles (Hosts), engage in adventures, become part of their own […]

Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance (Film Review)

 

 I’d like to start off by saying this: People are fecking stupid! I’ve recently seen a number of “reviews” for this film and most of them seem to be suffering under the illusion that this is meant to be a top quality film. IT’S NOT! It’s supposed to be an amusing little indie action-comedy that is a sequel to a early ’90’s cult classic. In short, it’s a bit of fun for the fans. STOP TAKING LIFE SO SERIOUSLY! Right, now that that is over with we’ll get to this amazingly entertaining indie film. Right, so in 1991 a small gang of Americans produced a direct-to-video action-comedy that was considered so bad and so cringe worthy that it became an […]

Aliens?

I adore the Alien franchise. The original three films were fantastic. Yes, I said three! I loved Alien 3. Hell, I even enjoyed parts of Alien: Resurrection. I shall even be so bold as to say that I found joy in a few parts of the Alien VS Predator films. But, the one thing I have enjoyed even more than this amazing film franchise is the cheap knock-off’s and badly inspired films that have swamped the world since those glorious days. Welcome to my five favourite bastard children of the Alien franchise. The Deadly Spawn (1983) We’ll start with this little gem. Made for less than $25,000 this -let’s be honest here- indie film is perhaps one of the most […]

Sleepaway Camp (Cult Review)

 

 I was originally going to write a review for Into the Badlands (Season 2), but then I thought: “Everyone else is doing it. So why the hell should I?” Instead I am going to write a review for a cult classic horror film and its sequels. Oh, and from now on I’d like to be called “Susan.” It’s my right as a strong independent black woman. Now for the half-dozen horror fans that are here let me introduce you -or reintroduce you- to the legendary “Sleepaway Camp” and its legion of sequels. Now the original film was released in 1983, and follows the story of a group of campers who indulge in whatever it is American campers engage in whilst […]

Best of the worst. (Film Review)

 

 It has been a while since we did anything film related. Oh, let’s be honest, it’s been bloody years since we looked at anything not music related. Thus today is going to be a day of some significance, for today we look at perhaps the best-worst movie ever made. Today we look at… THE ROOM (2003) Right, so we’ll jump right in with this: Wookiee made me watch this film. I’m still in therapy and have developed a morphine addiction from seeing it. (That’s my excuse and I am sticking with it!)  I am calm…. I’m calm… No I’m not….. Right, so for the dozen of you that have never seen this film let me give you a little background […]

The Man In The High Castle (Review)

 

 The universe is full of “what if” moments. It is part of the cornerstone of human nature to guess, assume and visualise what could have, would have, and will possibly happen. It’s in our very DNA. We like to assume, and we like to see alternative ways in which things can play out. So it should come as no surprise that someone wrote a book, and someone made a TV series based around the idea that the NAZI’s and the Empire of Japan won WW2. This is the amazing book and TV show “The Man In The High Castle”. Right, so we’ll start with a little background for this show. “The Man In The High Castle” was the brainchild of […]

Diablo: Rise of The Hunter

Today we speak to French-Canadian actor, Jean Drolet about his role in the new Diablo fan film “Diablo: Rise of The Hunter“. How did you get involved in Diablo: Rise of The Hunter? Well two, two years ago I was invited to a private screening by a young friend of mine Carlos Cobezas. He was the film Director and Stephanie Van Rijn Vincent (Valla) was the lead actress. A year passed liking each other’s postings until I’ve been invited to a scenario first reading of DIABO: ‘’Rise of The Hunter’’. There I met Amanda Lynn Petrin (Halissa) and Luc Godbout that became DIABLO’s Film Director. We repeat one scene or two to pin point meaning sand will and then there […]

Time Commanders

Anyone that knows me is aware that I am a fanatical study of military history. Granted, I enjoy history in general, but there is something captivating about military history. I do not think that there is a subject on Earth that has shaped the course of humanity like that of military history.   Case in point: if it were not for the Norman invasion of Anglo-Saxon England in 1066, England/English would not be what it is; the UK would not have been formed; the British Empire would not have happened and English would not be the most used language on Earth. Additionally, the USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia, India and numerous other nations would either not exist or would probably […]
