Chuck (2009) – Versus the Lethal Weapon, and Versus the Predator

Chuck’s (Zachary Levi) adventures in his personal and professional life continue this week as Cole Barker (Jonathan Cake) the MI6 agent that seems to have some chemistry with Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) resurfaces in Chuck Versus the Lethal Weapon. Written by Zev Borow and Matthew Lau, the episode first debuted on 9 March, 2009. It sees…

The Ballad of Black Tom (2016) – Victor LaValle

H.P. Lovecraft gets a fantastic spin in this novella by Victor LaValle. Lovecraft is hard to admit you like, because his stories of cosmic horror and old ones are so good, and have become such a cornerstone of horror fiction, but he was just so racist and that permeated all of his writing. The Ballad…

Star Trek: Ice Trap (1992) – L.A. Graf

There are times. Not often, but every now and then, that despite my love for the subject matter, I can’t get into a book. This is what happened with my latest foray in to the Star Trek novels. I loved the sound of it, I’m enjoying my time with Kirk and company as I go…

Clueless 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray Review

Clueless is 25 years old today, and I have a hard time believing that for a couple of reasons. 1) That would mean I’m about 15 years older than I think I am and 2) the film still endures, is still relevant, and damned funny. Paramount Canada is celebrating the date by a 25th Anniversary…

Star Trek: The Kelvin Timeline (2009 – 2016)

Space… There was a lot of it between the end of Star Trek: Enterprise in 2005 and the next Human Adventure. For the first time since 1987, there were no Star Trek series or films in production. It was strange for a number of fans, though a large percentage of them realised that it was…

The A-Team (2010) – Joe Carnahan

Sometimes you just want to relax with a fun action movie, where it seems like the heroes are having a great time, and there’s a lot to watch and enjoy as set pieces roll across the screen. 2010’s update on the classic Lupo/Cannell series The A-Team is very much one of those movies for me….

The Amazing Colossal Man (1957) – Bert I. Gordon

The stories of atomic mutation continue as I delve deeper into DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies. This one ends up being a rather bland tale, as it doesn’t really try to do a character piece, but it definitely doesn’t have any action set pieces. It’s more of a point to point narrative that tries…

Quantum of Solace (2008) – Marc Forster

Daniel Craig’s second outing as Ian Fleming’s James Bond, is the spy movie of the week as I continue exploring the original 007 novels. I have a few issues with this film, one of them being the running time, this is the first Bond film in quite sometime that isn’t two hours or more, and…

Star Trek: Enterprise (2005) – Terra Prime, and These Are The Voyages…

Captain’s log: 22 January, 2155 The penultimate episode of Star Trek: Enterprise brings the Terra Prime two-parter to a close in this story written by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens and Manny Coto, from a story developed by the Reeves-Stevens and Andre Bormanis.
