In Praise of Stepin Fetchit

In Praise of Stepin Fetchit

No, of course not. What am I, an idiot? We have all seen snippets of the Great Black Idiot being a dumbass, and as a result I suspect that most people think that was all he boiled down to – a dumbass nigger held up as an example of his race’s innate inferiority. As offensive […]

"You Know Nothing, Jon Snow – Not Even How To Stay Alive!”

“You Know Nothing, Jon Snow – Not Even How To Stay Alive!”

Those bastards finally killed Jonny the Boy Scout… But have they? Sure, in the real world being stabbed so many times would almost always be the end of you, but reality doesn’t have zombies, dragons, or, above all, Red Priestesses. Since we don’t know what the hell is going to be in the novels and […]

Oh, my god! They killed Tyreese!

Oh, my god! They killed Tyreese!

Those bastards… Yes, it’s all getting very repetitive and tiresome in the land of The Walking Dead. Funnily enough, I joked somewhere that an obvious spoiler to the second half of this season would be some major character getting killed by the end of said season, but the joke turned out to be on me […]

Matango – Demon Fungus From Hell!

Matango – Demon Fungus From Hell!

SPOILERS AHEAD In this slab of 1960s weirdness, a bunch of badly dubbed Japanese tourists find themselves in some seriously psychedelic trouble after a storm damages their yacht and the current pulls it towards a mysterious island, an island that hides a dreadful, dreadful secret… Since there’s no point to staying on a yacht that’s […]

Oh, my god! They killed Beth!

Oh, my god! They killed Beth!

Those bastards… So, the people in charge of The Walking Dead have decided to kill off Darryl’s little friend. This does not please me in the least. While Beth wasn’t exactly one of my faves, she was a likable kid so I am not at all happy to see her get her head blown off. […]

Harley Quinn Annual – Good, But Not As Smelly As Expected

Harley Quinn Annual – Good, But Not As Smelly As Expected

Lots Of Spoilers Ahead, Not To Mention Mindless Rambling This thing’s been out for weeks now, but only a couple of days ago did I get my copy. The comic shop I usually go to had only the Bombshells variant cover and no way was I forking over nine buckaroos for something with such a […]

Messiah of Evil

Messiah of Evil

“Messiah Of Evil” is one of those unique and marvelous pieces of 70s obscura that few have even heard of, much less seen. Kinda like the word “obscura,” strangely enough. Messiah is also a surprisingly neglected film, given that its creators went on to all sorts of big stuff including American Graffiti, an Indiana Jones […]

“Not Hercules” Is Kind Of Okay.

“Not Hercules” Is Kind Of Okay.

When I decided to watch the new Dwayne Johnson movie “Hercules” my main question was “Will a black Hercules work?” As it turns out, as far as authenticity goes, the lead character’s race is the least of this movie’s problems. Race-wise, Johnson pulls it off. He certainly has the height and musculature to play the […]

The Shining Sucks!

The Shining Sucks!

Well, that was a disappointing two hours. I hadn’t seen this thing since the 80s and couldn’t remember whether it was any good or not, so when I bumped into a widescreen version last week I grabbed it. Turns out this is one of the most woefully overrated horror movies in the history of the […]

Hunted to Extinction

Hunted to Extinction

Two years after it was first aired I finally got round to watching this thing, and it turns out that it’s actually quite good. Long story short, a girly spy called Sam Hunter (I kid you not) working for a private security company finds out that someone is trying to assassinate her. Is it an […]
