[BOOK REVIEW] Star Trek: 50 Years, 50 Artists

I don’t know what I was looking for in Titan Book’s latest multi-artist tribute to 50 years of Star Trek, but as a longtime and rabid fan, this was almost it…with some minor quibbles. The book was a bit like ordering an expensive meal at a lovely restaurant and receiving instead a very tasty salad […]

In the film Lethal Weapon, audiences might have assumed […]

Greatest Jerks of the Silver Screen: Daniel from V (1983) and V: The Final Battle (1984)

This is a tribute to “Daniel,” one of the greatest jerks ever to grace the silver screen…the small one, that is. In 1983, V kicked sci-fi rumps everywhere, reminding us all that aliens don’t always want to share their Reeses Pieces with humanity.
