In My Own Words:
Writer, aspires to become a a professional writer of fantasy literature.

Lover of all things well-done -- music, books, cinema. Though I was once into only specific genres, I am always expanding my interests to include poetry, literature (classic and modern) art (modern and classic), indie rock, jazz and the more exotic classical, movies of almost any type.

Amazing Bulk [Import]
1.0 out of 5 stars Get purple, Feb. 28 2014
This is the worst movie ever made.

Now don't get me wrong -- there are terrible movies that are more of a chore to watch ("Manos, The Hands Of Fate"), or which are more notoriously bad ("The Room," "Birdemic"). But I have never seen one which showed such a glorious lack of understanding of the moviemaking process -- "The Amazing Bulk," where every single thing that can be done in a movie... is gloriously, hilariously WRONG.

It follows Henry "Hank" Howard (Jordan Lawson), a mild-mannered scientist coming up with some kind of Captain America serum for the military. He's also in love with Hannah (Shevaun Kastl), the daughter of his… Read more
Big Ass Spider [Import]
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
It's a movie called "Big Ass Spider!" Guess what it's about. You get three guesses, and the first two guesses don't count.

And yes, I had to watch it. With a title like "Big Ass Spider!," who could possibly resist? It's pretty much exactly the movie that that amazing title promises -- a modern B-movie creature feature, centering on a monstrous spider that just keeps getting bigger and bigger. And while you might initially suspect that it's a SyFy-style disaster, it's also a very well-made film.

It opens in the middle of a scene you'd expect of such a movie -- a blimp-sized spider destroying a skyscraper, while helicopters buzz around helplessly… Read more
I Am Pusheen the Cat by Claire Belton
I Am Pusheen the Cat by Claire Belton
5.0 out of 5 stars Pusheen you around, Feb. 25 2014
If you're not familiar with Pusheen the cat, let me enlighten you: Pusheen is an adorably blobby little cartoon cat, featured in Claire Belton's animated webcomics. And while there's no animation in "I Am Pusheen The Cat," this little book is a great display of the blob-cat's smiley, adorable charm -- and it serves as a nice non-medicinal cure for depression.

In case you're not familiar with Pusheen, the book opens with a little intro -- her birthday, gender, best feature ("toe beans"), hobbits, favorite foods ("All of them"), and so on. There's also a cute little intro for her fluffy baby sister Stormy.

Pusheen is like a lot of cats -- she… Read more
