Complete Dracula

The Complete Dracula #reflection

The Complete Dracula I remember growing up when in my mind, vampires and Dracula were one and the same. I saw the name of the monster as the name of any monster of a similar form. And to take it a step further, all vampires were always dressed in formal …

silent hill past life

Silent Hill Past Life #reflection

Silent Hill Past Life Nope, we aren’t going to dip into our past. That would just be weird and we would all be a bit uncomfortable and maybe even a bit confused and no one would walk away from the conversation happier for having been there. Or something… Actually, before …

Sabrina

Chilling Sabrina #reflection

Chilling Sabrina I’ve been with ComiXology Unlimited pretty much since they started the unlimited program. It really isn’t all that old yet (I don’t even think a year yet). So when this month’s comics came in, I didn’t quite figure out the reason for the theme right away. We’re in …

Shadowland

Shadowland #reread #reflection

Shadowland (Reread) I am going to start this with a bit of a confession. I feel like this is a cheater thought. See, I read this book roughly twenty years ago and haven’t gotten too far into it again right now. This is actually my third time reading Shadowland (Berkley …

iron squad

Iron Squad #reflection

Iron Squad I am sitting here trying to think of how I want to open this piece. There are about three or four different ways I can say the same exact thing but not a single one of them seems to fit what it is I am trying to accomplish. …

Pirate Eye

Pirate Eye #Reflection

Pirate Eye Working in the library, you tend to see a ton of books. There are any number of possible combinations of books that you might have never thought to see. And one thing I tend to see a lot of is mysteries in so many different varieties. But there …

Morning Thoughts

Morning Thoughts #reflection

Morning Thoughts I have been reading some older comics recently. Pretty much some select comics from the 60s and 70s. Some observations come to mind as I delve into the depths of our past. Granted I grew up on comics in the late 70s and 80s. I couldn’t really tell …

Death Race 2000

Death Race 2000 #reflection

Death Race 2000 I remember when this movie first came to video. I knew next to nothing about it, other than the obvious that came about when you watch the movie. I mean seriously, I didn’t know that this movie was a remake for an older one. That’s odd, right? …

Neuromancer

Neuromancer #Reflection

Neuromancer Cyberpunk, the word has moved into our everyday language and tons of movies have sprung up from the idea of it. It fills its own genre within the science fiction and fantasy spectrum. There is speculation (chicken and egg stuff) of where the origin of the word and parameters …

the circle

The Circle #Reflection

The Circle So we watched it. And the implications of the story scared the bejeebers out of me, but the story itself left me feeling flat. Have you ever come across that with a story? Of course, if you are wondering, I am talking about The Circle (Lionsgate 2017). The …
