“The City of Ember” – Film Review

Like The Golden Compass, City of Ember skirts the edge of “true” Steampunk, but I have seen it on several Steampunk movie countdowns so I thought I’d check it out and snoop for Steampunkishness. Even though it is probably most accurately called “post-apocolyptic fiction”, there is a definite visual style that will appeal to Steampunk fans. […]

Cassandra Clare’s “Clockwork Prince” – Book Review

After I read Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (who also penned the Mortal Instruments books), I knew I had to continue the journey. I just had to find out more about Tessa and her mysterious ability to change into anyone, living or dead, just by holding something he or she owned. And what was the origin of […]

“Neverland” – Mini-Series Review

My favorite Peter Pan of all time has to be the one who terrorized the citizens of Storybrooke on Once Upon a Time, but I think as a whole the 2011 mini-series Neverland is the most interesting (re)interpretation of J. M. Barrie’s classic story that I have come across. Or rather, this story is of […]

Cassandra Clare’s “Clockwork Angel” Review

If you are familiar with the author Cassandra Clare, it probably isn’t because of Clockwork Angel or the rest of the Infernal Devices trilogy. She is best known in literary circles as the author of the hit YA series, Mortal Instruments. The first book, City of Bones, was made into a movie called Mortal Instruments: […]

The Iron Jackal – Book Review

This tale is all about the good ship Ketty Jay and its captain, Frey, but the story is told through the eyes of the entire crew as they take turns enriching the story with their insights and foibles. It all starts when this rag-tag band is enlisted by Frey’s “its complicated,” Trinica the pirate queen, to […]

“Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes” – Film Review

That’s right, there was another Sherlock Holmes movie that came out around the same time as the Robert Downey Jr. movie and it totally had a dinosaur in it. Didn’t hear about it? I am not at all surprised. I am a huge fan of terrible movies. These are films that you can’t help but laugh at even though […]
