I have reviewed Monsters University over at Escape Pod.

I think everyone knew I was going to write a review of Star Trek 12. Here it is.

I have written a review of the TV miniseries version of Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal. Read it here.

I have reviewed the 1969 film The Phantom Tollbooth. Read.

My review of the film Safety Not Guaranteed is up at Escape Pod.

The Croods, in case you’ve been living in a cave, is a new animated film about a family of cavemen who come face to face with the end of the world. You’ve pretty much met all the characters in other movies and even on sitcoms.

My review of the new show Orphan Black is now up at Escape Pod. Read it here.

My review of Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman is now up at Escape Pod. Read it here.

My review of Oz the Great and Powerful is up at Escape Pod. I did enjoy it… but don’t look too far behind the curtain.

Sometimes, alternate history doesn’t require telling the reader what the crisis point was that got changed. Sometimes, the reader just needs to know things are different. And that’s where The Mirage by Matt Ruff begins.
This Book is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don’t Touch It is a fun, fast, grotesque read that fans of horror, action, and humor will enjoy, especially if — like me — they have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old boy (or at least appreciate a good fart joke).
It’s been a while since I’ve read any Neil Gaiman, and that’s a shame — he is one of the greatest working writers of our time, either in spec-fic or out of it. Whenever I read one of his books, I’m reminded just how good he is. If you haven’t read The Graveyard Book, now would be an excellent time to pick it up and take a look. You won’t be disappointed.
From my review of The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, now up at Escape Pod.
Every now and then, a book comes along with a great premise and solid execution that a lot of people like and recommend with great gusto. Ready Player One by Ernest Kline is such a book. And it is good — very good — except for the places where it can’t get out of its own way fast enough.
