Mattel The Hammond Collection Robert Muldoon (2023)

“Clever girl….” Game Warden Robert Muldoon (portrayed by the late Bob Peck) is the one character in the original Jurassic Park (1993) film that I hated to see die. If you’ve read the novel you are aware that the character survived the incident at Jurassic Park. He was one of my favorite characters in bothContinue reading “Mattel The Hammond Collection Robert Muldoon (2023)”

Throwback Thursday: Weird Science (1985)

“From my heart and from my hand, why don’t people understand?” John Hughes wrote and directed the teen science fiction comedy Weird Science. Despite being a very successful film, it is rarely mentioned in conversations about some of Hughes’ most successful films such as Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Home Alone, and Ferris Bueller’s DayContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: Weird Science (1985)”

Throwback Thursday: Flash Gordon (1980)

“Flash Gordon. Quarterback. New York Jets.” Entirely over the top and insanely fun to boot, 1980’s Flash Gordon is loud, brightly colored, and completely bonkers. It features a stellar cast loaded with actors who are well known in the science fiction and fantasy genres and boasts a soundtrack written and performed by none other thanContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: Flash Gordon (1980)”

Throwback Thursday: Krull (1983)

“The Black Fortress…where does it rise?“ My relationship with the 1983 film Krull is an odd one. I didn’t actually see the film when it was first released in theaters but my parents bought me the Atari 2600 game that tied into the film because I was enthralled with the movie. I also had aContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: Krull (1983)”

Dime Store Reads: Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?

“The electric things have their life too.” First published in the late 1960’s, Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is an odd book that plays straight for the most part but wanders into disjointed realms (on purpose) at times. I picked this book up for three bucks at a local Dollar GeneralContinue reading “Dime Store Reads: Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?”

Fave Five From Fans Podcast

“From the creepy swamps deep in the heart of Cajun Country…” I’ve been attending conventions for over a decade now and one of the things that I enjoy most about going to them is the journey there and the ride back home. Why? Because while me and my friends are cruising down the highway toContinue reading “Fave Five From Fans Podcast”
