Book Review: The Far Cry by Fredric Brown

FarCryThumbby Timothy Lane
Brown’s mysteries could be rather gritty at times, and this one is no exception. It starts when a young woman named Jenny faces death in the form of a man coming after her with a knife. She opens the door behind her and starts to run . . . and there the prologue ends, to be followed by events 8 years later. More » • (1433 views)

Movie Review: Shi mian mai fu [House of the Flying Daggers]

HouseOfFlyingDaggersThumbby Brad Nelson
2005 Oscars: Nominated for “Best Achievement in Cinematography.” Apparently it didn’t win which shows you how utterly worthless the opinion of the Academy is. And I mean utterly worthless. More » • (1931 views)

Narnia: Unplugged

NarniaSeriesby Brad Nelson
One of the best, if not the best, series of fantasy/sci-fi books that I’ve read is C.S. Lewis’ Narnia series. If you haven’t read them, do so for this is very fun experience and is easily better than the Harry Potter series because the stories are more varied and not so bloody long. More » • (2412 views)

Movie Review: Tristan and Isolde (2006)

TristanThumbby Brad Nelson
This is one of my brother’s finds. I would never have picked it up myself. Looks too chick flick just going by the cover. And I just got done reaming James Franco for his lightweight performance in The Great Raid. I mean, the man is pretty. I’ll grant that. But I’ve never seen him act. Until now. More » • (1242 views)

Movie Review: Hot Fuzz

HotFuzzThumbby Brad Nelson
