LEXX!

 

 “I am Kai, last of the Brunnen-G. Millennia ago, the Brunnen-G led humanity to victory in the war against the Insect civilization. The Time Prophet predicted that I would be the one to destroy the Divine Order and the League of 20,000 Planets. Some day, that will happen… but not today, as today is my day of death. The day our story begins.” – Kai. This article is not for the squeamish, the sensitive, those with pink hair, or those who only live for big budget, six-pack fueled, romance driven, science-fiction TV shows. This TV series, Lexx, represents everything that is glorious about complete and utter wonderful nonsense. Made on a shoe-string budget, staring lesser known Canadian and British stage […]

TOP 5: HORROR FILMS!

 

 Halloween is almost here and to celebrate we are going to delve into some of the most terrifying horror films of all time.

SLENDER!

 

 S Every now and then, Wookiee, a concept is born that soon develops into a fully-formed multi-limbed beast that has a divine will of its own… and a taste for consuming social and cultural norms.

An interview with NICK POPE!

 

 The Uninvited – 1997. Today I have a treat for you. Last week we looked at The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (An amazing game.), and during my research I discovered that a friend of mine was involved on the project. Nick Pope, one the world’s foremost UFOLOGISTS (UFO expert) and Conspiracy Theorists (No, he’s not a loon! He’s one of the few who looks for truth, NOT sensational stories.)  Nick worked for the British Ministry of Defence (MOD)  from 1985 to 2006. Over the past three-decades he has written several books – the titles of which are seen on this page – and worked on various TV shows, films and other media. Essentially he’s a “REAL-LIFE”, Fox Mulder… Wonder if he […]

The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil […]
