Zombies In Kindergarten, Korea, and Everyday Life: Kevin Wayne Williams, Train to Busan, The Returned and The Rezort

– Posted in: Film Review

My favorite zombie entertainment choices are still the George Romero classics, 28 Days Later more recently, and The Walking Dead for the small screen. But recently, I’ve come across additional fun entries in the zombie genre: Kevin Wayne Williams is an engineer and author of Everything I Know About Zombies I Learned In Kindergarten. The [...]

– Posted in: Memorable Minorities

Bruce Faulk rewrote a scene from Game of Thrones where a Colorized version of Tywin and Jaime Lannister work to resurrect Khal because he was the only non-white major character.  (By Colorized we mean Black and Asian folks playing the Lannisters.)  It's a spoof of this Game of Thrones scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47MazYDnmaU

– Posted in: Film Review

On my watchlist this week were two very different live events: comedy, documentary and The Battle Below screens at The Anthology Film Archives. Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain wasn’t the laugh-out-loud set I expect from Hart, one of my favorite comics. I appreciated  his opening, as he took viewers around the world to see the [...]
