Giving Voice to the Villain


galactica space
I know. I know.  The title of this article is rather salacious.  You will soon find that this has very little to do with space or the Stanley Kubrick film. This has been a terrible year for me.  I really feel like this was a throw away disaster of a year […]

2011 a Space Odyssey



What would Halloween be without Horror movies? I wouldn’t be very fun for adults. Now let’s think a bit about what makes a Horror movie so damned scary. The story is most definitely a key element. A spooky soundtrack and good Foley adds to the experience. These aren’t the reason […]

Watching sci-fi movies is a hobby of mine. I don’t just watch them I learn all there is to know about them.  I like to know where the original story came from.  Who’s idea it was.  I like to research why the actors chose to be involved, what the director […]
