Unbreakable (2000) – M. Night Shyamalan

  I’m really loving the Sci-Fi Chronicles book. Yes, I’m overdue to continue the war films in the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book, but I am loving all the films I am to watch, revisit, and see for the first time in the science fiction universe. And now, it’s time to spend a…

Godzilla (1998) – Rolamd Emmerich

  It had to happen sooner or later, there was bound to be some crossover from the Sci-Fi Chronicles book and the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book… and it just had to be this one.

Visit Scenic Haven…

Stephen King. Like so many others, his books were a rite of passage in my teen years. I still remember the first one I read… Salem’s Lot (loved the way he interpreted vampires). It was the third longest book I had read at that time (following Lord of the Rings, and Shogun) and I flew through…
