MORBIUS as Consolation

I went to see GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE again this past weekend. I didn’t get to stay for the movie, though. There was this jackass—you likely know the type—who felt like jabbering, loudly, while the movie played. I asked him to keep it down and he mouthed off at me. Now at that point I had two…

In Memoriam: ANNE RICE

At this site it would be downright criminal if we didn’t offer some kind of tribute to this lady. What can we say about her, then? I will say that, based on all the things I’ve ever read from her, the autobiographical things as opposed to, or in addition to, her fiction, and based upon…

THE CHOSEN: Postscript

One of the most persistent legends of the modern era concerns the existence of the secret society.

But I’ve never walked into a role where the anticipation of it was so great. Where people were already so familiar…

Morbius vs. Omicrona

When reports began to circulate concerning the Omicrona variant, aka Ronacron, I said to myself, yep, there it is. There’s the reason that MORBIUS will once again get yanked from the movie release schedule. Just as well, since MORBIUS doesn’t really exist. It’ll give the studio time to actually film the movie. It seems they…
