Every horror fan has seen the scene before: the main character or characters wanders around the old asylum. It's night time and the building has long since been abandoned, but they're on the search for clues. Maybe they'll get chased around. Perhaps they'll meet a lover which will give the film makers an excuse to [...]

I Hope the New Power Rangers is Bad

By | January 4th, 2017|Fiona's Posts, Movies, Pop Culture|

A while ago, Tom wrote a post about his hopes for the new Ghostbusters movie. He hoped that the movie would be successful (I think it was) and that it would shut up angry fanboys (does it ever?). However, I'm going to take the opposite stance here. I am a huge Power Rangers fan, and [...]

In honor of the recent announcement that Lin-Manuel Miranda will be producing some sort of film, television, or stage adaptation of Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicles series, I have taken some passages from Hamilton and modified them slightly to be about Kvothe, the main character of Kingkiller Chronicles.

Geek Chic

When I'm not in cosplay, I enjoy expressing my geek, but I also like to do it in a fashionable, feminine way. One of the most frustrating things when searching for cool geek wear and only finding unisex, shapeless t-shirts. Thankfully, however, there are a number of companies that supply affordable and cute fashion and [...]

Review: The Rocky Horror Picture Show (2016)

By | October 21st, 2016|Fiona's Posts, Movies, Pop Culture, Television|

Update: the full movie is available on the Fox website When I first heard that Fox was remaking the 1975 classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show, I was skeptical. However, I still watched it, and, unlike many critics, I enjoyed it. Rocky is a phenomenon. You can't really remake it, and this film didn't try [...]

Far away, over hill and stream, there is a cave at the heart of a mountain. The cave has never seen the light of sun. It is filled with a dank and dismal lake, in which swim hideous eyeless fish, wriggling through the slimy water. The only sound is the occasional drip, drip, drip of [...]
