A Look Inside “Steampunk Style”

I was excited for this book for a number of reasons. I love Steampunk. If I could any literary world to live in it would be a steampunk one, sorry Batman. Something about it makes me all giddy. The second reason is that I am currently in the process of writing my own steampunk novel…

Phoenix Film Festival 2014 “Teddy Bears”

How do you deal with the death of a loved one? Having an orgy with your best friend’s girlfriends is probably not what would pop into most of your heads, but that is what pops into the main character’s head in Teddy Bears. The odd thing about Teddy Bears is that at the very beginning…

Dust of War has a very interesting concept. Aliens invaded Earth and they decimated it. Now the remaining humans roam the land in a Postman type world while the aliens seemingly patrol the area.

Love him or hate him 300 was the movie that introduced the world to Zack Snyder. Yes, he directed Dawn of the Dead before that, but it was really 300 that showed us his unique visual style. Some might argue that he borrows too much from the comic book source material, but those are only…

“Odd Thomas” Movie Review

A few years ago I was introduced to the Odd Thomas universe by my brother. I was a little leery at first because I’m not a huge Dean Koontz fan and I always thought of him as a Stephen King knock off, but as I delved deeper into the book it quickly became one of…
