South Park: The Complete Tenth Season

The tenth season of Comedy Central’s South Park from Paramount Pictures was  on my watch list this week, and I was delighted to find that the laughs and the satire continued through all fourteen episodes. Series creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone prove they are still at the top of their game as the young…

South Park: The Complete Sixth Season

Paramount Pictures continues making me laugh with their re-release of the first seasons of South Park. I dug into the seventeen episodes with enthusiasm, and this may be my favourite season!

The Colorado Kid (2005) – Stephen King

I’m a fan of Stephen King, as most people who follow the blog would know, as they have seen me revisit some of my favourite stories and novels. I was also a huge fan of the television show, Haven, when it aired, delighting in the tie-ins it made to the worlds King had created. But…

The Passage (2010) – Justin Cronin

  Epic, majestic, terrifying and engrossing. And heartfelt thanks to Amanda for pushing it in my direction! These words perfectly define The Passage by Justin Cronin. A massive novel, coming in at 879 pages in paperback, the tale it unfolds is massive, engaging, and is almost mythic in nature. With a vast cast of characters,…

The Prestige (2006) – Chrisopher Nolan

  The Sci-Fi Chronicles book has been a welcome addition to my library, and I was delighted to see that the next subject for me to cover is director Christopher Nolan. I’ve written about most of his other films, and all the ones the book recommends previously, but for The Prestige, and one other film….

The Shining (1980)

Stanley Kubrick and Stephen King. If there was ever a movie to give me nightmares, it would be this one, though it’s never happened. I love every chance I get to revisit this film, and seeing it on the list of 101 Horror Movies just gave me my most recent excuse to watch it again….
