Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets (2017) (DVD film review).

I have been a fan of Science Fiction for over four decades. Over that time, though, I have almost exclusively read stories written in English.

Cannibals And Carpet Fitters (2018): (a film review by Mark R. Leeper).

A company of carpet installers goes on their worst job ever when they have to install carpets in a mansion with a family from the London Chainsaw Massacre. Droll English humour if never hilarious, it does have its share of funny lines and circumstances. It’s working class characters making usually amusing comments. Some will find […]
