I bet right now you’re idling in the sun, maybe twiddling all three of your thumbs, taking a rest from blasting some unfortunate alien or avatar and looking for something to engage your brain in and realising you haven’t got a book to read. That being the case, then I might be able to help. […]
The Curse Of La Llorona (2019) [a film review by Frank Ochieng]
by FrankOchieng on April 21, 2019 at 8:08 am
While the protagonists in director Michael Chaves flimsy frightfest ‘La Llorona’ feel the so-called ominous curse at large, some moviegoers may feel their own brand of cursing courtesy of a hackneyed horror film that revisits the tired tale of macabre mythology. However, ‘The Curse Of La Llorona’ has somewhat of an excuse to exist given […]

Looking at the title, ‘The Wisdom Of Wonder Woman’, Signe Bergstrom has brought together dialogue from across the history of the most famous Amazon in comicbooks, touching on the TV series and recent film.

Lurking in the media shadows behind the bright lights of Hollywood and the bestsellers vying for your attention are little books put out by small presses and local authors. Their zero marketing budget means they often go undeservedly unnoticed. One such tome is ‘Tales From The Graveyard’, an anthology of spooky stories from some writers […]

There, the Doctor (actor Peter Davison), Tegan (actress Janet Fielding) and Turlough (actor Mark […]

Inside the cover of ‘Scratchman’, it adds James Goss as the co-author of this book years in the making. As my additional press release material tells me, the idea was originally a hot project in the years Tom Baker was playing the Doctor and it has finally come to fruition in the year of his […]
