Not really a genre movie, this week Steve reviews a Norwegian movie with hints of Tarantino and Ritchie, which is probably close enough to qualify. The humour is dark and mostly subtle. What do *you* think?
Nicolas Cage likes weird movies. Prisoners of the Ghostland is one such; but the weirdness comes at a price. There’s not that much plot, and it drags in the middle. But it’s sort of stylish. Steve liked it.
They’re running and rerunning movies on Steve’s TV. He’s already reviewed this one online, so why not edit and rerun the review? Go for it!
Steve reviews one of the better Halloween movies he’s seen, even though it’s an oldie. Korea is becoming a terrific place for genre movies, it seems.
Steve reviews the Sept./Oct. issue of the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, finding it excellent. What’s it all about, Alfie? Could it be monsters and aliens and dragons, oh, my?
This week Steve talks about live-action Superman portrayals. Who did he like? Whose movies are or were best? If you don’t agree with him, let him know!
Steve reviews the new horror movie Malignant, with Annabelle Wallis. He liked parts of it and disliked other parts. Overall, it was a “thumbs down” for him.
Need some good reading to distract you from the heat, the forest fires, the pandemic? How about a pandemic anthology? How about the July-August issue of the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction? Go for it!
After a long, hot summer, Steve returns with two old black-and-white movie reviews. No, wait, the reviews are new… the movies are old! Read it while it’s fresh!
Steve reviews the May/June 2021 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. It’s the first one fully edited by Sheree Renée Thomas. Is it good? Read the column and see!
Continuing his look at old genre movies, Steve travels back to 1957 and looks at a movie often touted by Famous Monsters of Filmland. Is it good? Hey, it’s better than many black-and-white monster films!
Steve finds a fun parody (semi-genre) movie from 1989, the Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death. He enjoyed it!
Steve’s watched the first four episodes of a new superhero series from Netflix. Is it well done? Did he like it (so far)? Read the column and find out!
Steve reviews a “sci-fi” movie from 2018, which cribs… er, steals… er, is loosely based on Herman Melville’s “Moby-Dick.”
This week, Steve reviews a book by D.G. Valdron about the cult SF series LEXX, from the late 1990s. He says both book and series are well worth a fan’s attention.
If you’re a fan of Chinese action movies and Milla Jovovich, this movie sounds like a good bet… but it’s not. Only for the Jovovich completist. And maybe not then.
Steve reviews the March-April F&SF and then the newish movie “Freaky.” Should you watch it? Maybe, if you’re younger than, say, 30. Otherwise… meh.
This week Steve reviews another Steve—okay, they’re both Stephen, but this one doesn’t use that name—Stephen King, whose latest effort is called “Later.” It’s a horror-crime novel. And it’s good!
Steve rewrites one of his earlier columns for Amazing (again!) just in case you want to know how he started in this whole “fannish” business. Do you care? Did you read it before?
The new movie Monster Hunter is based on a Capcom video game. Does it make a good movie? Steve thinks it’s kind of enjoyable as long as you don’t think too hard about it.
For C.C. Finlay’s last edition of F&SF, Steve has nothing but kind words. What will the future—and F&SF’s new editor, Sheree Renée Thomas—bring?
Steve does his usual roundup of all of 2020’s columns (well, just the ones he wrote). And he does a bit of self-promotion. See the featured image!
In his last column ever… for 2020… Steve talks about two books by Jeffrey A. Carver, and hopes you all have a wonderful winter season.
In his penultimate 2020 column, Steve reviews a new horror anthology. Is it scary? Very!
This week Steve reviews the November-December issue of F&SF. It’s also the second-to-last issue that will be edited by C.C. Finlay, who wants to return to writing. It’s a fine issue to end the year on!
In probably his longest column ever, Steve talks about the movies (and a TV show or two) that he watched every night this month in preparation for a spooky, isolated Halloween!
The current issue, Sept.-Oct., of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, is reviewed by Steve—and found to be good!
