Sex, Power And Partisanship by Hector A. Garcia (book review).

Hector A. Garcia’s book, ‘Sex, Power And Partisanship’, makes more sense with its sub-title, ‘How Evolutionary Science Makes Sense Of Our Political Divide’.

Immortally Yours: An Argeneau Vampire novel (book 26) by Lynsay Sands (book review).

There are some very long running series that can be regarded as supernatural erotica. The salient feature is that somewhere in the novel, the main characters will have explicit, consensual sex. With Laurel K Hamilton’s ‘Anita Blake’ series, which has now reached twenty-six books, the main character, Anita, is the focal point of every novel. […]

This one reminds me of Life on Mars and its sequel, Ashes to Ashes, in that the very un-PC and unreconstructed Shaft (think Gene Hunt) is paired with his FBI agent son (think […]

Painkillers [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng)

Director Roxy Shih’s (‘The Tribe’) psychological thriller ‘Painkillers’ is a horror showcase of a different kind. The decorated demons and lingering despair do not emerge from behind a shady-minded wall or appear in the freakish form of an apparition looking for spooky-minded payback. Shih’s fright fable is effectively embedded in the tortured psyche. The sickness and […]

Alita: Battle Angel (new trailer).

Here’s another trailer for the live action Alita Battle Angel film put together by Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron. Hollywood seems to be littered with the bones of anime cartoons made into live action flicks that then bombed and died. Will Alita Battle Angel break this terrible and seemingly intractable curse?
