Factory Flicks: The Complete First Season

This originally appeared on Film Threat 11/30/10.  You can read my review of the DVD here.  It's not every day I review films for kids, so this was out of my ordinary realm of reviews.

Stereomud and Sepultura Reviews

Reviews for Stereomud's Perfect Self and Sepultura's Nation appeared on page 19 of issue 45 of Tattoo Savage, cover date March 2002.  I would reprint them here, but I sold all rights to them, and I don't feel like being sued.

"Stereomud needs to alienate the mainstream listeners it claims to hold in contempt."

"Nation exceeds all expectations and leaves listeners salivating for more."

Excess Hollywood: Jack Daniels, Art Auctions, Forty Grand Therapy and the Death of Art

4/21/05 saw this "Excess Hollywood" published on Film Threat.  You can read this piece that is critical of Metallica here.  I remember people not being very happy about it when it first appeared.  I still stand by the piece.

Excess Hollywood: Do Studio Executives Dream of Electronic Sheep?

5/12/2005.  This was a short interview I did with author Alan Dean Foster on Film Threat.  You can read it here.  I originally contacted him about his involvement in the Ultraman movie, and from there it became something more.

Excess Hollywood: Dario

Originally published 11/10/05 on Film Threat, this "Excess Hollywood" column is on Dario Argento.  You can read the original piece here.  My regular readers know how strongly I feel about Argento.  I seem to recall having a tough time getting Film Threat to take this one, and I think it was because the publisher at the time (who shall forever remain nameless) thought Argento's name wouldn't attract readers.  That's an opinion I still consider misguided at best.

Excess Hollywood: The Cancers That Are Trekkies

Originally published 11/24/05, this "Excess Hollywood" column on Film Threat came across meaner than I meant it to, in all honesty.  I'm actually surprised the editor at the time let it run.  You can read it here.
