Limerick-Off Monday – Rhyme Word: Peer or Pier or Appear at the end of any one line

Showcase #58 / Enemy Ace - Joe Kubert art & cover

Joe Kubert Showcase v1 #58 featuring Enemy Ace, 1965 - In this second Enemy Ace issue, Joe Kubert delivers another expertly drawn tale. The aerial battles are meticulously illustrated, using viewpoints that often bring the reader right into the cockpit. Sequences are beautifully choreographed and never monotonous. Just a tad less impressive than the previous issue, this story nonetheless [Author: Ted Ignacio]

Gypsy Omnibus

by RM Rhodes During the late 1990s and early 2000s, Heavy Metal ran six stories by Thierry Smolderen and Enrico Marini. The first of these, titled The Gypsy Star, was an immediate hit and was followed by the rest of the series over almost the course of a decade.  The art was the obvious draw of the story. Realistic, with an obvious manga influence, Marini could provide a cartoon flip to his line when it was necessary. The color scheme usually balanced a very orange red and a cool blue. The se...

‘Mary Poppins Returns’ Clip and Featurette Focus on Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep

Mary Poppins Returns is going to sing and dance its way into movie theaters in just a few days, and Disney has unveiled another new clip that shows why Emily Blunt is truly the perfect person to take on this classic role. Oh, and there’s also a featurette about Mary Poppins’ cousin Topsy, who’s played by Meryl Streep. It goes without saying that Streep is an acting legend, but (*whispers*) she’s kind of terrible in this movie! See for yourself below. Mary Poppins Returns Clip This clip t...

Johnny Be Good

I was mostly interested in watching this because of the cast, and not really because I remember it being a good movie or anything. Seeing Anthony Michael Hall play a jock still feels weird, and oh my, Uma Thurman was so amazingly cute (in her debut film, as the “Introducing” in front of her name during the opening credits announces). As is often the case with films of this era, it’s incredibly sexist, and silly as hell, but I tried to just place myself in “time machine” mode, and sorta enjoyed ...

Coming to America

The biggest surprise for me was how much I enjoyed watching this, and still found it to be so incredibly funny. Sure, I have fond memories of it, but I wasn’t expecting it to have aged well. But yeah, this is still so oh-so funny, and it was a delight to see Murphy and Hall disguised while playing all those wacky characters (I had completely forgotten about this). Still well worth watching, and possibly Murphy’s best comedy film? (I still have a certain fondness for Trading Places though, and t...

Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood

I’ve watched a lot of Friday the 13th movies since I’ve started doing my 80s movie marathons (4, 5, 6, and 7), and I think this is my favorite one. If you think back on the series, this is close to being the most archetypical (at least of the ones I’ve re-watched). Sure, the mind powers of the girl are a bit silly, but you have a well executed zombie-like Jason, teens at Crystal Lake (doing silly teens things), and all sorts of gruesome kills — although what I’ve discovered re-watching these is...

Are we losing knowledge in this hobby?

On reddit, someone asked: Are we losing knowledge in this hobby that used to be common?The other day I was listening to a conversation on the local repeater, and it was a relatively recently licensed General giving some “advice” to a new Technician who was hoping to upgrade soon, and who had some HF gear and an antenna but who hadn’t transmitted yet on HF.What I heard coming from General was appalling. He recommended that the guy get an automatic antenna tuner, and regales him with a tale of ...

Dead or Alive Marie Rose Cosplay Always Gothic

Dead or Alive’s Marie Rose as presented by cosplayer Akagi Kuro is not afraid to show a bit of her backside and pantsu whilst cheekily posing for the enjoyment of onlookers. Marie Rose’s fashion choices usually include tight Gothic Lolita clothing and it’s no different this time around:

Monkey Shines

I won’t say it’s a bad movie, but I feel like the movie just takes way too long to turn into the “horror” film it’s billed as. The first hour is a bit of a slog to get through — as the main character deals with his accident and the aftermath. Things get a bit more interesting when the monkey starts doing its thing, but it felt more like a “science gone wrong” film than horror — and the way he defeats the monkey (and the way it’s shot) is hilariously silly. I also tend to stay away from movies b...

‘Aquaman’ Soundtrack Features Pitbull Covering Toto’s ‘Africa’ For Some Reason

Quick – when you think of Aquaman, what’s the first song that immediately springs to mind? Whatever song you just thought of, I can almost guarantee that it wasn’t “Africa” by Toto. But that’s the song you’re going to hear in the film when James Wan‘s Aquaman washes into theaters on December 21. Sort of. Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull, has a song on the Aquaman soundtrack called “Ocean to Ocean”, which repurposes the chorus of Toto’s “Africa” for its own chorus. Why? I don’t know, you’ll have t...

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect.
