Tim Burton’s Greatest Mistake?

March 19, 2012 I was excited when I heard Dark Shadows was going to get a movie adaptation. First of all, it was being directed by Tim Burton. Second of all, it starred Johnny Depp, though that’s kind of a given at this point. Burton and Depp did a great job adapting Sleepy Hollow, one […]

When Dan Brown Will Rewrite the Bible

January 6, 2012 This isn’t about the string of remakes that have come out in the last several years. Those are merely the symptom of a sick culture. And we are a sick culture. We may not know it, but we have a disease that’s festered and finally made manifest in the need to make […]

Ninja Pirate Zombie Robots vs Superma...

April 20, 2011 Is there a new movement for directors to take responsibility for their crappy movies? The latest is Bryan Singer, a man I generally respect for his work on the first two X-Men movies, House, and I look forward to see how he directs he adaptation of the 1970’s Battlestar Galactica for the […]

No Love for Faux-Artists

April 15, 2011 I am done with the internet. You know how I often say that education is the key to our society’s survival and how all opinions are just opions until you actually show evidence for why your point of view should be taken seriously? Behold the ultimate argument for my philosophy. That’s right. […]

Why Plagiarism is Good

January 19, 2011 Have you ever read the sequel to Macbeth? No? It’s really cool. The witches resurrect everyone at Hecate’s order in order to have them work out their differences at a lavish, magical banquet. What about the stunning trilogy set after the events of “The Call of Cthulhu” wherein the narrator tracks down […]

Return of the Revenge of the Son of t...

December 3, 2010 Perhaps now more than ever, Hollywood is entranced with the idea of reusing old ideas and trying to make them hip and gritty. This is nothing new. They tried it years ago with Super Mario Brothers and to a spectacular failure. Sequels are old hat. Remakes are nothing new. Re-imaginings are a […]

Divine by Zero: Vegetarians are Soyle...

October 22, 2010 It’s been one of those days. Months. Three months. Short version: this job is killing me for all the wrong reasons. I’ll elaborate more later, but suffice to say that my letter of resignation is in the mail and I’ll be going back to teaching and tutoring, something which, amazingly, is less […]
