I can’t remember if I watched True Romance the first time before or after I watched Reservoir Dogs, although I’m certain I watched neither until after I watched Pulp Fiction. If I had to guestimate a date, I’d say I watched it around 1997. This would have been three years after the movie bombed in […]Read more "True Romance — a movie review"
Wow. While looking at my published posts, I just realized that I haven’t made an entry for GRRM’s A Dance with Dragons, which I finished reading a while ago. In this case, “a while ago” means about 112 pages into Abaddon’s Gate, the third entry of The Expanse by James S.A. Corey, which I’m reading—and […]Read more "A Dance with Dragons, by George R.R.

Here’s what I know about writer Brian K. Vaughan. He was a writer, story editor and producer on the television series Lost from seasons 3 through 5. He automatically gets storytelling cred from me for that, especially since he wasn’t around for Season 6 and the series finale that I like to pretend never existed.

Sometimes, the most difficult thing to do is to follow the rules you’ve set for yourself. I have ground rules for these things. A 10-List has ten entries only. No matter what. It’s not always the “Top 10.” Sometimes it’s the ten most essential items, or the ten things that best represent whatever it is […]Read more "10-List: All-Time Favorite Television Series"
