That New Hellboy (a review)

My esteemed friend and associate Mr. Bloom of the excellent Toisto site loaned us this movie on Blu-ray. I don’t think he’s fully reviewed it on Toisto but he did have some good things to say about it and encouraged … Continue reading

Star Trek: Discovery

Now we’ve watched, as far as I can tell, just about the full run of … season 2? Season 3? of Star Trek: Discovery. Or there are a couple of episodes to go. I don’t know. I can’t keep track … Continue reading

Dumbo (a review)

I went with Wump and Toop to watch the gritty reboot of Dumbo on Tuesday, and got pretty much what I’d been expecting. Dawwwww. It was fine. The parts that followed or called back to the original were cute (I’m … Continue reading

Day 8. 81 pages, 37,483 words. Before I even start on this review, I need to make it very clear: I am aware that there is a manga series that is the true original for this. And an anime television … Continue reading

Sunday: Activism and Rebootery

Day 98. 68 pages, 30,301 words. Another pre-write and I have nothing much to say. My parents are headed home tonight but it will be late, so even if Heikki gets my computer back to be by deadline, I won’t … Continue reading

Day 57. 91 pages, 45,216 words. So, it seems that Netflix is going there. And by “going there”, I mean “getting all up in The Dark Crystal and doing stuff.” Now, I’m slightly concerned but not all that upset by … Continue reading

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Again)

Day 14. 0 pages, 0 words. I reviewed this nine years ago, when we saw it at the cinema. Watched it again with Wump last night, and it was as un-gripping as I remember. Wump was underwhelmed. Huge book, lots … Continue reading
