Delta Redux: A Voyager Rewatch: Meld

After the ill-conceived cluster that was Threshold, Voyager serves up a truly great episode in Meld. In complete contrast to the previous episode Meld is well written, well-acted and tells a story with real consequences that will last throughout the series run.  That right there is a welcome change. As I’ve said multiple times season [...]

Review: Man-Thing #2 (2017)

In the previous review on issue #1 I wrote about how I didn’t really enjoy how Stein was approaching the character of Man-Thing – I said the humor just a bit off and just the characterization of Man-Thing was … interesting, but not to my liking.

The Blood Elevator: It’s Meaning & Symbol

The blood elevator scene, sometimes called the ‘river of blood’, from Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining is a horrifying and disturbing image in a film full of horrifying and disturbing images.  Upon watching it the scene produces in many - myself included - a feeling of dread; an uneasiness that is hard to explain. I’ve often [...]
