A review of the Almost Human episodes “Pilot” and “Skin.”
I’d be more interested in Almost Human if it’s about the Dorian android living with the day-to-day tedium of police work. Yes, Michael Ealy’s natural blue eyes help Dorian’s other-worldliness, but Ealy also charms and has me thinking less of the police procedural stuff.
What would happen if he and Karl Urban’s Detective John Kennex would drop the procedural stuff and shoot the breeze in a bar? … Continued »

After seeing Disney’s take on Snow White, I didn’t have much interest in her or other princess waiting for love’s true kiss or some nonsense. Once Upon a Time feels like a overblown soap opera and I haven’t watched other movie versions of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale.
I am, however, open to watching Snow White WITH BULLFIGHTING! Made as a SILENT MOVIE!
Anyone open to watching this silent, black-and-white movie will be charmed. Carmen, estranged from her bullfighter father due to tragic incidents, eventually becomes the sensational matador nicknamed Snowhite and living with traveling dwarves. … Continued »

There may be rockin’ reverend shaking things up, but I won’t roll with him. Scot Michael Walker writes, stars, and directs this movie where his character spreads the message of “Don’t Be A Douche.” The reverend’s ministry thrives on false equivalence: that bad religion isn’t worth your life, so trust MY depressing, aimless religion.
Rockin’ Reverend lacks the wit to be a satire. Within the first 12 minutes, Robert is established as a vulgar loser. I don’t buy his easy, but unearned, success. Alas, I’m writing a movie review, not hashing out an apologia. … Continued »
This is NOT your typical review…
Director Andrew Bujalski practices shooting a black-and-white camera under the pretense of a fake documentary about an early 1980s computer tournament. However, he thinks Computer Chess is some sort of artsy-fartsy experimental film. I hate being experimented on. … Continued »

Or will the possum force fall at the tech-heavy might of Xiao & his crew? … Continued »
Marvel, in their never-ending battle to give fans a reason to buy their wares, publishes stories about undead versions of their most cherished heroes. The initial series is written by renowned zombie expert, Robert Kirkman, and shows the aftermath of a myserious virus that gives the Marvel heroes an insatiable hunger for flesh.
With the zombie love at a high, I examine some issues from the Marvel Zombies line. I’m not in love with them, but the issues sometimes provide some compelling or humorous moments of note.
I’m limiting my commentary to: Marvel Zombies 1 #1, its prequel, Marvel Zombies: Dead Days (Robert Kirkman, Sean Phillips), and the one-shots Marvel Zombies Halloween and Marvel Zombies: Evil Evolution. I’ll admit that I may come off as ignorant about the Zombie Universe, but I’m not paying lots of money to get all the stories. … Continued »

She was also a breast cancer survivor, gone through the sadness of losing her husband, and wrote all about her struggles and triumphs in Don’t Look Back, We’re Not Going That Way! … Continued »
