Comics: Occult Crimes Taskforce

When I say 'Rosario Dawson' most of you will associate actress, mega babe, 'Clerks 2', and the like. I'd risk a guess and say that few of you would associate the name with 'comic book creator'. It's true nerds; she's nerdly.

'Occult Crimes Taskforce' is a four issue mini-series published by Image Comics in mid 2006. The story contained within tells of a special branch of the Manhattan Police Force put together to handle cases that are occult in origin, as the name suggests.

The Saturday List

In light of my Saturday spent spring cleaning and watching movies at random, I present my first List of what I'm sure will be many. Once you read the list, you'll get the idea!

So, to kick it off:

Top 5 movies to while away a Saturday while cleaning:

1. High Fidelity
2. Tommy Boy
3. The Blue Brothers
4. Animal House
5. Die Hard (#1)

There ya go folks, feel free to add your own lists below! Stay tuned for more lists as the occur to me at random!

The Ruins (REVIEW)

Screenwriting gurus Syd Fields or Robert McKee will tell you that you need ten solid scenes to make a movie work, and the rest just needs to stay out of the way. If "The Ruins" has ten such scenes, there certainly isn't much else. The film, directed by former fashion photographer Carter Smith, breezes by, feigning at both character and plot without bothering to develop much of either.

The week of recovery is almost over

Since this week has been almost entirely spent trying to recover from the drunken hijinks of Horror Hound Weekend, I can't even tell you how relieved I am that it's over. You know when you build up to something for so long, that when it's over you feel really depressed? That's a good way to describe the funk I'm in right now. So, I thought I'd close out the week with some more pics of me and (my brother) Mark drunkenly kicking the shit out of each other.

Hack-Off: Underrated?

The Bloody Good Horror Crew goes at it on a new topic every Friday afternoon, we call it the "Hack-Off". Feel free to leave your own thoughts in the comments.

An underrated film that you think deserves more attention?
