Remote Viewing: Episode 04

Just a quick post to accompany this Remote Viewing episode release as I’m about to fall in a heap, right here on the keyboard… and given how unhygienic people say keyboards are, I don’t think that’s something that I want to do. It’s an all DVD outing this time with REC (which is actually currently […]

xFiles: I Want to Believe

When the X-Files whimpered from our television screens back in 2001, I think that most people felt that the horse, werewolf, inexplicable creature and human with funky, stretchy abilities, had well and truly been flogged to death. In this nerd’s humble opinion, the right time to end the series would have been right after (or […]

Batman: The Dark Knight

Usually, when a movie gets as much press as The Dark Knight has, I have to think really hard about whether or not I really feel the need to add ‘yet another’ random voice to the din being created in the press, on blogs, and on websites everywhere. Basically, if I get sick of hearing […]

Sporror: [REC]

Xander has other plans however, […]

DVD: The Beast with a Billion Backs

Sure, keep reading if you want to get a face full of how awesome the latest, direct to DVD, Futurama movie is, but do so with the complete knowledge that I’m an utter Futurama whore. But lets also be clear about this, I’m a Futurama whore not only because these guys consistently deliver bucket loads […]

DVD: Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! Season 1

One favourite psycho-babble catch-phrase that’s thrown around quite a bit these days is ‘repressed memories’. Now, while I don’t pretend to have any understanding of accepted modern psychology practices, I believe that the concept relates to a situation where a person experiences an event so traumatic that their mind ‘protects’ them by hiding said memories […]
