Danny Trejo

Danny Trejo has been the designated badass in numerous movies for the last 20 years, especially when Robert Rodriguez or Quentin Tarantino needed him. They must do something special with the camera because as the picture above shows…I’m a couple … Continue reading

Sam Jones, my favorite Flash Gordon!

Sam Jones is best known for being Flash Gordon in the 1980 movie of the same name. He’s my favorite person to play the role because the Buster Crabbe is silly and the 2007 TV show was just plain awful. … Continue reading

DC’s Hanna-Barbera offerings redesigned

Suffice to say, not everything from DC is annoying reboot of their universe for the umpteenth time *cough! Rebirth**cough! Crisis something* No, someone from the executive caste in the Time Warner empire probably told the DC people to make viable … Continue reading

Scientia est bona

Another addition to my collection of fake school shirts. I’m not nuts about Animal House.  There’s some pretty funny moments and the sitcom was surprisingly good but I’ve always found the movie to be more Boomer navel gazing over a past … Continue reading

Ghostbusters (2016) not even worth renting

Let me get this out of the way…I never liked the original Ghostbusters neither. It was a huge letdown from the team that gave the world funnier stuff such as Stripes, Caddyshack, Meatballs, Animal House and to a lesser extent The Blues Brothers. I laughed … Continue reading

RIP Martin C Croker

He provided the voices of Zorak and Moltar for Space Ghost Coast to Coast and Doctor Weird who kicked off numerous Aqua Teen Hunger Force episodes. The banter he provided to make Space Ghost even more ridiculous was a huge factor in getting CN to … Continue reading

The Amazing World of Gumball is an understatement

Image Comics’ Fantasy offerings

Last month I posted a second plug for Image’s Sci-Fi offerings. With WizWorld merely days away (I have a ticket to meet Matt Smith, Karen Gillan bailed), why not cover the realm of Fantasy. Here Image is doing pretty well. OK, … Continue reading

Blazing Saddles memorial show

I’ve seen this movie several dozen times but never on the big screen. My parents did and I vaguely recall that day, we (my brother and me) were ditched at Grandma’s house for the afternoon. Alamo’s copy had been played … Continue reading

Miniature Broad Street Bullies

They finally arrived courtesy of Terra Toys! Being a toy and hockey geek along with being a completist, I ordered 18 skaters and two goalies. Then I’m ready to tear up the ice. For the opposition, they didn’t have Dallas … Continue reading
