Yet We Keep On: Reflections on Mortality

Yet We Keep On: Reflections on Mortality

FOREWARD: This post is dedicated to everyone in my life past and present but most of all to a couple of my Spotlights and closest people in my life, Michelle Lynn Thompson and Destiny Maxon. They were both huge inspirations and sources for this entry coming together. Thank you to you both. ~Namaste! “Death does not discriminate between the sinners and the saints.

Horror Movie Month: “Only Lovers Left Alive” (2014)

Horror Movie Month: “Only Lovers Left Alive” (2014)

And now we go in to the obscure with a surprise movie that was recommended to me that I had never even heard of. I’m not a HUGE fan of new vampire films considering what passes for ‘vampire’ nowadays in the modern media but I was promised that this movie, ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ (2014) starring Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton, would be worth it and break that trend. And to be honest…it doesn’t entirely do that but what it…

It looked and sounded like the cynical, cold-hearted, dead cash grab of a film that we were all expecting and…

Review: Doctor Who -“The War Doctor: Agents of Chaos”

And so we return to the Time War and the battles of the War Doctor (played by John Hurt) in the third installment of the War Doctor Big Finish audio series, “Agents of Chaos”. This series has been one of my all time favorites that Big Finish has ever released and this is one I’m ecstatic to see continue. If you remember from previous reviews, Series 1 “Only the Monstrous” was a three part Dalek war story centered on the…

Horror Movie Month: “Titus” (1999)

Horror Movie Month: “Titus” (1999)

From the woods of the Black Hills forest, we go to the halls of ancient and modern Rome for our next horror movie entry. “Titus” starring Anthony Hopkins, Jessica Lange, Alan Cumming, and Colm Feore and released in 1999 may seem a strange choice for a horror film review at first glance as it is a film adaptation of one of William Shakespeare’s lesser known and earliest plays ‘Titus Andronicus’. Of all of the Shakespeare stories that more famously fit this time of…
