I’m Thinking, I’m Thinking…

Yes, that's me in Auvers, France (the place where Van Gogh worked and died), communing with poppies and wheat, trying to figure which of the several intriguing projects that have come my way since RIDDICK should be filmed next.  While I ponder, thought I'd take the time to update my web/blog page.  Thanks to Joe...

Experiencing E3

  The good folks at Activision invited me over to E3 yesterday to check out their latest and greatest.  Saw the trailer for DESTINY, publicly available, but then on the DL they showed me some gameplay footage for the upcoming CALL OF DUTY, ADVANCED WARFARE.  While DESTINY impressed, the CODAW footage rocked hard.  Count me...

RIDDICK, the unrated Director’s Cut

  Some of you have been asking for dish on this new cut of RIDDICK, available now on iTunes and dropping January 14 on DVD.  Well, the Director's Cut is probably 8-9 minutes longer than the theatrical version.  The bulk of that time comes in two areas -- several new scenes in the flashback sequence...

Harlan the Great

Called up Harlan Ellison today for two reasons:  1)  I missed his cranky old voice and, 2) To make sure he was still alive.  We hadn’t spoken in a few years and, frankly, I was starting to worry. For those of you who don’t know, Ellison is our greatest living writer of science fiction.  Okay,...
