Dragon Blogger Review of Coraline

I have always been a fan of stop motion animations and particularly the dark macabre films of Tim Burton such as The Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride. Coraline which is adapted from the book by Neil Gaiman is done in the same film style as these films and is brought to us by director Henry Selick, the same man who directed The Nightmare Before Christmas. Coraline is a visually stunning and unique film that … Read more

Movie Review: In The Electric Mist (2009)

As a Tommy Lee Jones fan I decided to rent this movie and see what it is all about, the movie follows the detective Dave Robicheaux played by “Tommy Lee Jones” as he investigates recent killings of “working girls’ in Louisiana. The movie is based on the book In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead and after watching the film and then reading some other reviews on it, I realize the film does leave out … Read more

Movie Review: Kirikou and the Sorceress (2000)

As a fan of independent films and art films, we rented Kirikou and the Sorceress which is an animation about an African folktale done by a french director (Michel Ocelot). I watched the English version of the film without subtitles and my whole family watched the film including my five and two year old sons. The film has a wonderfully unique story and moral, and is truly ethnic in nature. The animation is of course … Read more

Dragon Blogger Review of Star Trek

I went into the movie completely blind of reviews and even anyones reaction to it. I set my expectations low and didn’t know if it would feel like a Star Trek movie, or would it disappoint the fans with the new direction of the universe. I will have to say, I was pleasantly blown away by how enjoyable the movie was. Most movies that deal with time travel either don’t end well or have tons … Read more

Review of Heroes Volume Four – Into Asylum

“You don’t chase a shapeshifter” – Sylar “He’s A Better You Than You” – Sylar to Danko at the Garden of Eden club. What can I say about this episode except that it is one of the best of this entire season and follows up last weeks episode very well. The introduction of a new hero on the lamb from the agents who has the ability to shapeshift throws a loop and adds a nice … Read more

Dragon Blogger Review of Heroes Volume 4 Episode 5 – Exposed

You can watch the episode again here streaming: Review: I was much more engaged with this weeks episode of Heroes than in previous ones and I will say that even Claire trying to help Alex escape capture was more enjoyable than I thought.

Movie Review: Legend (1985)

One of my favorite movies of all time is Legend which was released in 1985. This movie is a fantasy story long before the Lord of the Rings trilogy and holds up well over the years, it stars Tim Curry as “Darkness” a creature who worships the night and wants nothing more than to purge light and good from the world. Tom Cruise plays “Jack” a forest child who was raised by elves and forest … Read more

Lost Zombies – An Online Zombie Community

Normally I don’t do to many reviews of people who contact me asking for a free plug for their sites, but when Lost Zombies contacted me I checked them out and was astounded at the level of effort and style put into this website and whole community. Lost Zombies is an online portal for all things Zombie and is under the premise that Zombie outbreaks are real and a massive one is eminent. It allows … Read more

Dragon Blogger Review of Hellboy 2: The Golden Army

First off I have to tell you I am a big fan of Ron Perlman and his portrayal of Hellboy from the first film, and a huge fan of Guillermo del Toro the director.  I loved Pan’s Labyrinth and this movies creatures and set designs remind me of his previous film in many ways. This movie has it all and starts off fantastic with a flashback to Hellboy’s early childhood years where his father reads … Read more

Heroes Season 3 Episode 10 – Eclipse Part 1

Watch full streaming episode: Several people have asked me not to use Hulu or find another video that displays outside of the United States, but I could find no legal video streams to support this.

Review of Heroes Season 3 Episode 9 – It’s Coming

Review of Heroes Season 3 Episode 8 – Villains

I was excited to see tonight’s episode after having to wait almost two weeks. Heroes Season 3 Episode 8 Villains did not disappoint.

After an opening narration talking about what makes some people choose the path of good and others choose the path of … Read more

Just Saw The Incredible Hulk For the First Time

HULK SMASH I must say it was a very good movie, much better than “Hulk” from a few years back.  Edward Norton does a very good job as Bruce Banner, and William Hurt plays General Ross.  This movie basically ignores the previous movie and treats it as if it never existed.  Now I did like some aspects of the previous film, such as the fact that Hulk became random sizes based on the strength of … Read more
