Don’t Call it a Comeback

Well, today marks the one year anniversary since I last posted on the site.  You may be wondering what the hell happened to me. I mean, I was pretty reliable for a while, throwing out new posts several times a week, if not every day. You’re thinking maybe I joined a monastery. Maybe I became lost backpacking in the Canadian wilderness. Perhaps I was finally thrown in the clink. Go ahead and get as creative as you want, because the truth won’t be as good as what you can come up with, unless you’re thinking I was just doing the same thing I was doing before, sans updating the website. If that’s the best you can come up with, well that’s just sad. But [...]

George Romero And His Softening Stance On Zombies

romero-zombieWhen you hear the name George Romero, the only thing that you can possibly associate it with is zombies.

It’s just those last few minutes of the movie to which I’ll be referring, so if you don’t care about the ending and still want to read on, you may want to catch up with a review of the movie. Second, I’m assuming that at one point it was expected that watching a movie could change your perspective on life and that generally speaking, those days are long behind us.

I suppose I’m making a third assumption as well- that you’d believe I hold myself to be a fairly pragmatic person. It may [...]

All Eyes On: Michael Dudikoff

Then the calendar turned to 1985- Dudikoff’s career, and heck, all of human history, would never be the same. He was cast to play Joe Armstrong in American Ninja. [...]

Let A Man Come In And Do The Popcorn

So, every day I wake up, as you might guess, Furious and feeling furious. There are many reasons for that, but the smallest and most insignificant is that the hardest working man in show business doesn’t get the recognition he deserves. Obviously, I’m talking about Dolph Lundgren. [...]
