Ghost Story (The Dresden Files book 13) by Jim Butcher (book review).

There is no way around this so if haven’t read the previous book to this, ‘Changes’, look away now. ‘Ghost Story’ is about our loveable wizard Harry Dresden and he is, as Dickens might definitely paraphrase, definitely dead as a door nail. But wait; although his demise is definite his story is not yet over. […]

Back To Frank Black edited by Adam Chamberlain & Brian A. Dixon (book review).

In many respects, when it comes to books on subjects relating to show-runner Chris Carter, ‘The X-Files’ tends to dominate everything. This book, ‘Back To Frank Black’, doesn’t. It focuses entirely on ‘Millennium’. Hard to believe the series is some sixteen years old now and probably that long ago since I saw it. However, reading […]

Goosebumps Season One (DVD review).

Well done to Revelation Films for releasing this excellent series on DVD. Based on the original books by RL Stine, who is somewhat like a younger version of Roald Dahl, though perhaps not as prolific and versatile, ‘Goosebumps’ takes us into the realms of scary stories for children. They were written about 20 years ago […]

Bloody Christmas (DVD review).

Christmas is coming and the goose is going to get slaughtered, accompanied by quite a few others in this not so cheery movie where the main star is a guy wandering about in a Santa Claus outfit. Be warned, you won’t find great quality of acting, production, sound and anything else you might expect from […]

Supernatural: The Complete Fifth Season DVD boxset	(DVD review).

If you’re going to Hell, having a musical accompaniment by AC/DC ain’t a bad place to be. Although whether Lucifer would approve doesn’t seem to matter as all he wants is a new body, that of a certain Sam Winchester. Then again, you could be forgiven for taking the Michael with Dean about an angel […]

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 film review (Frank’s Take).

This may be an intentional play on words but the final segment of the ‘Twilight’ movie series literally bites. Of course avid fans of Stephanie Meyer’s young-adult fiction film franchise devoted to the gooey-eyed goings-on of vampire valentines Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) may disagree with the not-so-favorable sentiment. Nevertheless the […]

Hell by Robert Olen Butler (book review)

What do you see when you consider Hell? Flames and torture, pushing boulders up unending mountains or perhaps embarrassing yourself on television on a daily basis and suffering four-hour erections? Although it sounds like making of a reality TV series, it’s actually the type of Hell depicted in Robert Olen Butler’s eponymous novel. Newscaster Hatcher […]
