Summer Fear II Report

I recently had the extreme pleasure of attending the second annual Summer Fear horror film festival in Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia and I was impressed. Not only by the turn out but by the amount of fun stuff they had to offer the ravenous fans of this excellent genre of film. I was stationed beside Marc Deveault of Trauma Sim Special Effects who had an impressive display of the excellent simulated body parts and prosthetics he can create for film makers. I  truly hope local companies utilize this guy, he’s professional, beyond talented and has twelve years as an army medic under his belt, if that doesn’t qualify him to create simulated injuries I don’t know what does! He also had a fantastic life size Predator statue he made himself set up and it was simply amazing. Continue reading

Harbour Con-Fusion Report

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the first annual Harbour Con-Fusion, a geek-centric event in St. John New Brunswick . I was asked by con promoter Joe Hatfield to take part and I am extremely glad I accepted. A great turnout for a first event and  commendable beginning to what I hope becomes a integral part of New Brunswick’s geek scene.

My involvement was much higher than I anticipated and I couldn’t have been happier, first up I was part of a “celebrity” panel with Nick Bradshaw amazing Moncton born artist for Marvel comics Wolverine and the X-Men (I’m aware I had no business being on a celebrity panel but screw you … I didn’t complain, but maybe raised an eyebrow). We had a lot of laugh’s Continue reading

Film Review: Prometheus

Title: Prometheus
Directed by: Ridley Scott
Starring: Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Logan Marshall-Green
Rating (Out of 5):★★★★

Fans of the Aliens franchise expecting a direct prequel will be sadly disappointed, however fans of Science Fiction films that deal with the nature of humanity and ask existentialist questions will be greatly pleased. It’s not that this film isn’t a prequel to Alien…it very much is but that just happens to be a tiny piece of what this film is actually about. It begins with the basic premise of a group of biologists discovering key indicators on earth that our existence has been shaped along the way by extraterrestrial beings, and that same group traveling to the stars to find the home that is indicated to belong to these creatures on the aforementioned  cave walls. What they find there is enlightening and terrifying as these beings might not be the benevolent god-like creatures they were thought out to be. Continue reading

Blog #4: Innocence Dies By Inches

Think about the ‘you’ that you are today,’you’ being the purest essence of who you are as a person. The part that makes you decide the things you do, feel the way you do, and act in that oh so special way you do. Now think about the ‘you’ of 5 years ago, now 10. Pretty different person weren’t they? Now I want you to jump in that mental Delawarean and cruise 88 miles an hour all the way back to you as a child. Look at that kid, their hopes their dreams and the rigid way they saw the world in black and white. Good guys wore white, bad guys wore black and there wasn’t a shade of gray to be seen. Continue reading

Blog #3: Before Citizen Kane

Well, it’s finally happened…those it said it couldn’t be done underestimated the greed gods as they have risen their ugly heads once more to create ‘Before Watchmen’. If Alan Moore has a grave buried in the magic cave under his house I’m sure he’s spinning in it. DC Comics announced earlier this morning that they are releasing 8 new mini-series each focusing on different characters from Alan Moore’s Magnum Opus. Continue reading

Film Review: Melancholia

Title: Melancholia
Directed by: Lars Von Trier
Starring: Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, John Hurt, Alexander Skarsgård, Stellan Skarsgård
Rating (Out of 5):★★★★

This film is hard to describe in a generalization. My girlfriend asked me right after I finished watching it what it was about and it took me a while to form it into words. At it’s core it’s a film about depression and it’s stranglehold on one particular woman but also how that depression leaves her more prepared than anyone when the end of the world comes. Lars Von Trier has created a beautiful film about the impending destruction of Earth, which is basically what this film is about. Split into two parts the first “Justine” which follows the titular character on her wedding day, trudging through what supposed to be the greatest day of her life as her squabbling relatives do little to make anything easier. She finds herself lost in Continue reading

Blog #2: Reboot, Redesign and Rebrand

So it’s finally here, DC Comics has “rebooted” their entire line of comics, “redesigned” every single one of their characters and now it’s time to “rebrand” with afresh new logo. I can’t say that I’m surprised, DC has a long history of  turfing old (or in this case not so old) logos and continuity in exchange for something new that fits their new definition of what their “universe” is all about. DC Comics has had an exorbitant amount of reboots to “fix” things in their long history including ‘Crisis on infinite Earths’, ‘Zero Hour’,’The Kingdom’ , ‘Infinite Crisis’, ‘Flashpoint’ Continue reading

Film Review: Attack the Block

Title: Attack the Block
Directed by: Joe Cornish
Starring: Jodie Whittaker, John Boyega, Alex Esmail, Leeon Jones, Nick Frost
Rating (Out of 5):★★★★

A little late in the game getting to this little gem of a film as it was released on DVD in October and being a British film it didn’t make the rounds for very long here in Eastern Canada which was unfortunate, I say unfortunate because it was an excellent film. For those of you who have enjoyed the English film and television work of Edgar Wright (Shaun of The Dead,  Hot Fuzz & Spaced ) I can assure you that you will love this picture. Set in an area of England’s lower income housing known as “The Block”it follows the adventures of 5 young ne’er do wells who begin the story by mugging a young nurse for her purse and personal belongings. During this violent-less assault they are interrupted by a meteor crashing through a nearby car. Continue reading

Blog #1: About Friggin’ Time!

Well, it’s about friggin’ time! I’ve been told by friends, family members, company mascots and the occasional hallucination that I should set up my own website. Well, here it is, ya vultures! It took getting over a lot of procrastination and graphic design work to finally sit down and do this, so I am overcome with an overwhelming sense of pride to finally have it all finished and online for my fans. Expect to get updates on my appearances and various projects through this newfangled internet contraption. There are a lot of irons in a lot of fires so expect to see a cavalcade of projects popping up on here and I hope you’ll read them and give me a chance to slowly worm my way into your lives.
