Harry Potter Pillows

Books, Film

I’m not going to sit here and lie to you and say that I’ve read all the Harry Potter books or seen all the movies (though I have seen most of them and they are entertaining). However, as I do understand the appeal of both, I can also understand how fans have created a demand […]

Best Movie Adaptations of Books

Books, Film

I’m a fan of both movies and books, and so it’s always interesting to me to see movies of books I’ve read, and to read the books on which movies I’ve seen were based.  That being said, some movies based on books just drop the ball.  They either try to change too much, or only […]

First of all, a quick disclaimer: I am not glamorizing nor glorifying weapons, violence, or related topics.

While it’s bad enough when it happens to the hero, it’s […]

featured, Film

Of all the Halloween movies out there, Halloween is maybe the best.  The first one (1978), that is.  The second one is pretty good too.  The third one  had nothing at all to do with Michael Myers, who is the big bad reason that the Halloween movies are so great.  The fourth and fifth movies, […]

Funny Bond Girl Names

Babes, Film, Humor

With James Bond 23 being suspended indefinitely thanks to MGM having a distinct lack of money, I wanted to take some time and look back on Bond Girls that we’ve all loved, and the absurd, funny names they have a habit of getting stuck with. Dr. Holly Goodhead Played by Lois Chiles in Moonraker, I […]

The new Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows premiers this Friday, and with that mind, an artist friend of ours from our sister site, Bizarre Bytes, put together this little Harry Potter comic to illustrate how the Harry Potter universe probably could have been paired down to a single book.
