Greetings, Gothamites! This week I forwent my regularly scheduled Disney movie because I felt like an extra helping of cheesy b-grade horror in the form of Piranhaconda. And I finally finished Firestarter then dove right into the next book in Stephen King’s bibliography — Cujo. For those of you unsure what’s going on, you can […]

Weekly update: Did we really need that trunk?

Greetings, Gothamites! So, if you’re a regular reader, you may have noticed that there was no For the Love of Pop Culture this week. I must confess, Gothamites, the past two weeks have been so cray that I haven’t managed to get my weekly helping of joy to write about. I have still been reading Firestarter […]

Weekly update: The good, the bad and the gory

Greetings, Gothamites! I have had an interesting week in horror with 3/4 of the films I’ve seen being from the horror genre and one western. Not all of them were good, but the main thing is that they were all very different and caused many different reactions.   Movie — Happy Death Day 2U (2019) […]

For the Love of Pop Culture: I know you …

Greetings, Gothamites! It’s Thursday, Thursday, gotta- … actually, I don’t know what you’ve gotta do on a Thursday because no one has written a song about it that subsequently went viral. If you don’t get that reference, it’s probably for the best.  Let’s dive into the run down for this week’s For the Love of […]

Weekly update: Teen Titans, go! 

Greetings, Gothamites! Happy February! I saw this tweet late last month and it speaks to me on a deep level. This week I’ve started watching both season three of True Detective and the limited series I Am the Night. They both seem quite promising at episodes two and one respectively. I’m looking forward to continuing […]

For the Love of Pop Culture: Hot crustacean band

Greetings, Gothamites! Last week I talked about trying to ensure I remember why I love the things I love by revisiting them. These included weekly visits to the worlds of Disney, DC Universe Animated Original Movies (DCUAOM) and b-grade horror. For the DCUAOMs, I’ve decided to start them again chronologically. But for the b-grade horror […]

Weekly update: Trailer. Park. Shark.

Greetings, Gothamites! It has been a hot one in Australia this week, with temperatures where I am rising to 44ºC (111ºF). One night, the overnight low was 29ºC (84ºF) so all I can say is “Thank Spock for air-conditioning and ice cream!” A bonus of not moving much is that I plowed through a couple […]
