Icarus Montgolfier Wright (1962)

I am a big fan of Ray Bradbury. Although I will admit that at times he does get a bit too poetic for my tastes. Yes, I love the wondrous flood of words he produces in some of his best stories, but the sheer rush of verbiage seemed to end up outweighing everything else as […]

Megamind (2010)

Supervillains. It’s not exactly obvious to the uninitiated, but there are two distinct types of supervillain: The Bond villain and The Comic Book villain. It seemed a strange coincidence when two studios came out with movies with supervillains as heroes at the same time, but Despicable Me‘s Gru is clearly the Bond-iest of Bond Villains… […]

City of Rott (2006)

I’ll confess it.  I like Frank Sudol’s weird little animated films a lot more than I should. I first encountered him in the anthology film, Monsterland (2016), to which he contributed a funny but gory animated short which went on a little too long. I then caught his feature film, Shock Invasion (2010), a gleefully black […]
