Reptilicus (1961)

This site has been up and running for 5 years and I have waited until now to dump the most snot coated cinema stink bomb of all time: Denmark's first and only monster movie, REPTILICUS  (AKA Ever want to see Copenhagen get attacked by a sock puppet)
A portion of the tail of a prehistoric reptile is discovered in Denmark. It regenerates into the entire reptile, which proceeds to destroy buildings and property and generally make a nuisance of itself. It can fly, swim, and walk, and has impenetrable scales, which makes it difficult to kill. Written by Paul White

World's Coolest Flight Attendant and the adventures of Snuffy the stupid Airplane

If Southwest wasn't such a skyBike this could be a scene from Soul Plane. Also, Soul Plane would have had to have NOT sucked to get this guy to be in it.

Lynda's not as good but still makes the best of a bad situation.

Book Reviews and some TOOTER TURTLE cartoons

Buck Rogers In The 25th CenturyBuck Rogers In The 25th Century by John F. Dille
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this for all the wrong reasons -- Dick Calkins great art adds a perfect deadpan to Philip Francis Nowlan's Ed Wood like horribly, stupid writing. If it were published today I would think it was a brilliant comedy in the vein of David Boswell's Reid Flemming

If this creative team had worked on Doctor Strange for the last 10 years I would have been reading Doctor Strange for the the last 10 years instead of hitting copies of it on the racks at the LCBS with a shoe.

I have no idea how this disaster made it past an editor's desk and to the printers. As sequential storytelling goes it was at times impossible to follow, all over the place. Even the lettering font was horrific.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Skull-cracking. Finally, after several decades of the norm, a wildly bold new voice in fiction. I wish Steve Aylett would do some mainstream comic book work, that stale horse is starting to stink up the joint with its aggressive scorn for blazing new trails or original concepts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Great first installment to a trilogy. An action packed space opera combined with a noir detective story. Destined to be a $300 million box office disaster.
