Why are we still talking about this?

The Video speaks for itself. I'd tell you to enjoy it, but I didn't really enjoy making it, so.... https://youtu.be/tbmkBt4y1ak

Where has the Shadow been?

  Hey, everyone! Sorry I've been so inconsistent with the postings lately. I've had a lot of stuff going on, and My Own Little Shadow has been suffering as a result. I apologize for that. I know a lot of you really enjoy the snippets of fiction I post, or appreciate the coverage I do … Continue reading Where has the Shadow been?

Let the artists create.

Do a Google search for "isle of dogs" and "cultural appropriation." I'm seeing this movie Monday, and I don't care that Wes Anderson made it. An argument can be made that cries of "cultural appropriation" in regards to books/movies/music are akin to asking for artistic segregation, where only X may write/act/direct about X, and Y, … Continue reading Let the artists create.

“Ready Player One” FanX Salt Lake Screening

Like they do for many big "event" movies, Dan Farr and Bryan Brandenburg over at FanX Salt Lake have arranged an opening night screening of Ready Player One, the upcoming film directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the novel by Ernest Cline (read my review of the book HERE). Taking place on March 29, the theater … Continue reading “Ready Player One” FanX Salt Lake Screening

Apologies for my absence

Well, it's now November 11th, 2017 (Happy Veterans' Day to all my fellow vets), and I don't think I've posted anything since my delayed final write-up on Stan Lee's LA Comic Con. My sincerest apologies for the absence. As has been reported previous, I signed up to attempt the NaNoWriMo this month, with the goal … Continue reading Apologies for my absence

Why “Bad” Films Might Deserve a 2nd Look

I’d say this was going to be a quick post, but I should know better by now. So should you, really… Last night, I recorded an episode of The Visually Stunning Movie Podcast, where we did a “Retro-Review” in honor of the great superhero movies that have come out recently (Logan, GotG2, Wonder Woman, Spider-man…). … Continue reading Why “Bad” Films Might Deserve a 2nd Look

A quick jaunt down memory lane…

Figured I'd just talk today. More writing to come this weekend, along with some Denver Comic Con updates, as well. Until then, enjoy this walk down Memory Lane, movie lovers. https://youtu.be/lped6RrMi7U

The Superman Conundrum

I’ve been thinking about this for some time, and finally just decided to blurb it all out here to try to make sense of it. DC has now released THREE cinematic versions of Superman/Kal-El/The Man of Steel in the last 10 years. One of those versions, Superman Returns, had Brandon Routh in the lead, while … Continue reading The Superman Conundrum

Netflix is my Hero.

In case you missed it, Netflix has just implemented a long-overdue change to their streaming service. You can now download available titles to your tablet or phone in their app for offline viewing. If you're like me, you're thinking, what the hell took them so long? It's such a no-brainer of a decision, as it … Continue reading Netflix is my Hero.

“Ready Player One” Ernest Cline

I had heard so many good things about "Ready Player One" that I finally broke down, bought it and read it. This book is ridiculously full of bits of pop-culture trivia going all the way back to the 1980s, and sometimes even further, as our hero, Parzival, attempts to win the internet, as the joke … Continue reading “Ready Player One” Ernest Cline
