  • The “Glad” in “Gladiator” | Disney’s Hercules

    There are a lot of people who get annoyed when adaptations of famous (and obscure) myths get adapted; certain audiences get pretty nitpicky with how their favorite stories are being told, or who’s telling the myth, or who’s filling which roles in it. And sometimes it does matter because of the particular themes a retelling…

  • Ch. 7: The Elm Street Trilogy, Part 2

    While the previous year had seen Rock and Shock grow but also incur the trouble of several cancellations, 2012 was able to become accustomed to the expansion. Granted, I was still a volunteer and was spared most of the stresses that Gina and everyone in the office were handling, but as a worker and observer…

  • Let’s Hear It for Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez

    I want you to remember the best summer vacation of your life. Chances are, it was either when you were a kid and the absolute ecstasy of getting out of school on a warm day in June left your tiny body thrumming with the kind of energy not even a school field day can totally…

  • Red Curtain Trilogy Thinkpiece 2: Time and Place at the Moulin Rouge

    When I was a kid in probably second grade (it must have been, because I remember having a conversation about it the day after with a classmate in Spanish, and we went to a different classroom that year for our specials) my older sister rented Moulin Rouge! and I, being approximately eight or nine, didn’t…

  • Ch. 6: The Elm Street Trilogy, Part 1

    A couple weeks after Rock and Shock 2010 The Walking Dead arrived on AMC and was an instant, massive hit. I had a chance to meet Norman Reedus at a local convention about three weeks after the premiere (he was there for a Boondock Saints reunion), where his autograph was still a reasonable twenty dollars,…
