This month, author John Valeri gives us insight into pursuing that special someone, with hilarious results . . . The Woman of my Screams By John B. Valeri My wife and I have an agreement. Should the opportunity to get biblical with Neve Campbell arise, I’d get “a pass.” Admittedly, this is not very likely […]

I’m not particularly a fan of horror. The ins and outs of the genre are not my forte. And to be completely honest, it isn’t often I appreciate pieces of work that fall into the genre. It’s not because I’m squeamish or I get scared of the dark, it’s simply because there is […]
It’s rare for a film to find the right balance between science fiction and absolute fun. Seems like it happens once in a generation. In 1997, Men in Black showed audiences that fun mixed with science fiction can work on the big screen. Men in Black 3 continues that tradition.
Writer, director, producer, artist, speaker, co-founder of Big Damn Films, and gentleman genius, Michael Dougherty (you remember him from Browncoats: Redemption) comes back into the world of film making and social activism. The whole idea of Big Damn Films has always been to give back to the community, to charities and make amazing films. Here’s […]

When science fiction is at its best it has heart. Movies as diverse as Alien and Bladerunner share this quality, as do the best of the best from blockbusters to indie art-house features. This is the case with Robot Stories, a compilation of four short films with a unifying dual theme: robots and souls.
So, here is the problem. Most of you readers have probably seen this movie, but not in its true form. I happened to catch this move on TV and was disgusted by the way it was hacked, the inability to see half of it and the incredibly garbled audio. At that point I shut off […]
Once upon a time there was an old man named Bud who repossessed cars with his young protégé, Otto. This movie is an all time lost classic smokescreen of a science fiction movie. It is an absolute chameleon movie, part coming of age, part moral tome on the society of 1984, part car chase, part […]
