23 Short Stories from the Wild West: Dead Man’s Hand

deadmanshandAll we get now in the multiplexes and the TV screens are superheroes, zombies and vampires!  Hey, Hollywood, about some good old-fashion cowboy flicks?  That Johnny Depp “Lone Ranger” fail of a film did not count!  How about dropping some John Woo/Tarantino-style old west cowboy stories?  I can envision a pair of Colt .45’s blasting in slo-mo during a stage coach robbery scene.  Enough with the World War II movies, but I digress.  If you want your fill of the old wild west with a mix of weird and the wonderful, try “Dead Man’s Hand” an anthology of short stories collected and edited by John Joseph Adams.

The Art of the Film – World War Z

world war z art bookThis past weekend I was able to hit the multiplex and catch Brad Pitt facing off zombies in World War Z, based on the best selling novel by Max Brooks.  I’m not a huge fan of zombies or gory violent flicks and I heard of all the production troubles in the film that Pitt endured with the studio and director, but all in all, I was pleasantly surprised by this PG-13 fright-fest.  The first half of the movie was a relentless assault of fast-moving zombies taking over cities and the supporting cast was terrific in the film.  The movie-goers were rocking and cheering and a couple of girls were yelling “Go Brad!”  It’s a high brow Resident Evil zombie movie that makes you think.

This is not a joke, there’s actually a Resident Evil restaurant.  It may not serve human body parts (well, I think it’s illegal, plus Zombies don’t carry money),but it does have waiters and waitresses dressed up in familiar character outfits from the Resident Evil universe.  The Biohazard Cafe and Grill recently opened @ Shibuya Parco Part 1 in Shibuya, Japan.

The Walking Dead on Blu-ray

I thoroughly enjoyed both seasons of the Walking Dead series. It’s cleverly written, the acting’s great, and it’s nicely shot. I highly anticipated each new episode and it was a definite “must watch” every week. So, when I saw the Blu-ray box set coming out in late August, I immediately wanted to share the news with all our readers. I love and highly recommend everyone to watch the series and can’t wait until next season, though I’m not sure if i can put this box in the middle of my entertainment center – especially when it’s not around Halloween yet.
