Big Page, Little Screen Dept. (2016/08/17 08:00)
Write something unfilmable.

Cynthia's Blues Dept. (2016/07/21 08:00)
Can in time a comic book stand in the same realm as anything Henry James produced? I'm sure it's possible; I'd argue it's already happened.

But That's Still Just, Like, Your Opinion, Man Dept. (2016/04/11 09:00)
I think, therefore I differ.

Playing Catchup Dept. (2016/03/31 11:20)

The Big Snub Dept. (2016/01/29 02:00)

I know I'm not 4K, that's for sure.

Stuporheroes Dept. (2016/01/02 01:00)

2015


Strange Days (2015/10/20 10:00)

Vampyros Lesbos/She Killed in Ecstasy (2015/09/23 10:00)

There's less room than ever for a big movie to fail.

Put Away Childish Things And All That Dept. (2015/08/24 10:00)
