MY CONFESSION

I’m showing my nerdiness here, but I don’t care. It needs to be said…  Who has watched the one and only season of Firefly, and its movie spinoff, Serenity? What did you think of it? Personally, I absolutely love it! I first watched it about ten years ago, when I was working for a high-profile PSD team, operating out of the American airbase in Kirkuk, Iraq. And I’ve sat and watched it a number of times since. It’s been my Continue Reading...

But still, it was better than the viewer being thrown into the thick of it, without experiencing Continue Reading...

GOODNIGHT GEORGE

This may be a little on the late side, but I have been indisposed with other issues lately. However, I could not go through the rest of my life without having said goodbye to the Godfather of the modern zombie genre. George A. Romero was the pioneer of the flesh-eating ghoul movies. He re-energised a movie monster who, until Night of the Living Dead, was nothing more than a mindless slave, carrying out the biddings of its evil master. Zombies Continue Reading...
