7 Days of 007 – Day 5: Timothy Dalton Oct08

7 Days of 007 –...

As we previously noted, Timothy Dalton was the man originally slated to replace Sean Connery, but he turned it down, citing at the time that he was too young, and Connery was too good to follow.  As when Connery stepped down, the world and the studio played the guessing game of who...

7 Days of 007 – Day 4: Roger Moore Oct07

7 Days of 007 –...

Once named as “the lethal comedian,” Roger Moore is the longest officially-tenured 007 in the franchise, with Connery tying the record only if the unofficial Never Say Never Again is counted in your lexicon (I count it, but only because it’s...

7 Days of 007 – Day 3: George Lazenby and the Return of Connery Oct06

7 Days of 007 –...

You might have noticed that yesterday’s article on Sean Connery was a little short.  This is because most people agree that Connery’s era was the gold standard and the one that everyone will compare to every later version of 007.  Besides, I...

First Look: RoboCop’s New Look Sep17

First Look: RoboCop&...

I was so excited for the rebooted RoboCop when I first saw the upgraded ED-209.  It was faithful to the original, but looked like it was on steroids.  I had hoped for something a little less drastic for RoboCop himself, but figured it might be something close to the original. I...

November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo for short.  It’ll be here before you know it.  For those unfamiliar with this event, the idea is to put an end to false starts and over-editing that first chapter by focusing on a speedy first draft.  The goal...

Obituary: Harry Harr...

It is with profound sadness that I report the loss of another science fiction master.  Henry Maxwell Dempsey, aka Harry Harrison, passed away today, cause as yet unreported. He was 87.  Harrison was one of the more interesting characters of the sci-fi set.  An American...

Review – Star ...

I’ve read nothing but internet garbage all day from sites who have nothing better to do than to remind us that the prequels divided the fanbase.  That news is 13 years old, and this Star Wars diehard is particularly sick of listening to it.  Time to change the...
