The X-Files (2001) – The Gift, and Medusa

Mulder (David Duchovny) is back! At least in flashbacks he is, as Doggett (Robert Patrick), Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) continue their search for the missing agent, and a case he was working on before his disappearance. Frank Spotnitz pens The Gift, which first aired on 4 February, 2001. While Scully continues to…

The Snoopy Collection – Blu-Ray Review

Snoopy and the entire Peanuts gang have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I can recall reading the paperback compilations of Charles M. Schulze classic strips. The Charlie Brown Christmas is one of the only holiday specials that I must watch every year. I imagined my childhood was…

Christian theology has never really been my…

Sick (2012) – Ryan M. Andrews

There’s a new film festival in town called Blood In The Snow. Organized by Festival Director Kelly Michael Stewart, of Fangoria magazine, the festival spotlights Canadian talent and Canadian film, specifically, Canadian Indie Horror films. Nice. Sadly, Sue and I didn’t learn about this in time, and missed the media window, but I did get…

Sandra DaCosta

  Last weekend I got to set sail with the cast of Pete Winning & The Pirates thanks to my friend Sandra DaCosta, who I was finally able to sit down with and have a quick podcast chat with her. That’s the good news, the bad news is, it was kind of windy out there…
