King Arthur

The film was basically a demonstration of ancient warfare tactics. The kung-fu-ish hand to hand combat looked good on screen but doubtful in reality. The storyline is quite simple: a group of knights are sent out by a bishop (he he -- I found this amusing) to rescue a Roman family that is on the way... Sign in to see full entry.

I am missing that blog: has it been discontinued or its just been pushed beneath a pile of other blogs? It used to be the Arts and Entertainment blog that made my day. Does anyone know anything about what happened to "Robin's Reviews"? Sign in to see full entry.

The Best Broadway Musicals I've Seen So Far

Disaster films have been quite successful as substitutes for Monster films and brainless blood and gore movies. "Earthquake" brought in "Sensurround" which allows the audience to "feel" the rumblings of an earth shaking experience. The Gene Hackman-starrer that showed a luxury ship capsizing in open...

Mindless Entertainment

OK, I am guilty of not choosing the movies or tv shows I do watch according to the standards more discerning audiences use.

But while "Spawn" is a human being who at death was turned into one of Hell's demons, "Hellboy" is a demon raised by a Catholic paranormal expert to combat paranormal beings that endanger human life.
