But it's a good kind of fear and loathing: Adam Jusko, in his review of The Joke's Over, succinctly expresses the "bizarre trip" that comprised the relationship between Hunter S. Thompson and Ralph Steadman, and makes articulately clear just how "Steadman's garish art was the perfect complement to Thompson's caustic words."
From TV Editor Jackie:
It's television and beyond when you take a gander at Anna Creech's latest Blogcritics Goodie Bag article. Always something new, always something cool. She rocks!
And how could I not so enjoy the tag team of the Woolstencrofts as they covered Torchwood, the first two episodes, within one day? Ian Woolstencroft wrote about the first episode and was soon followed by nephew Daniel Woolstencroft with the second episode. Both articles were well-written and entertaining, and both writers have contributed so much to the site they deserve the shout-out. Yes, they rock, too.
From TV Editor TV and Film Guy:
Looking for some old school horror? Well, that's not quite what this is. How about some B-level matinee fare that is the sequel to a series of horror films? Yup, that's more what we have here. Not quite a horror movie, not quite a good movie, but it is a good review. A little bit of history, a little bit of more current films. Let's all give Bill Sherman a hand for this one.
Frankly, I'm getting a little tired of this season of The Amazing Race. I have no one to root for, every episode they all bunch together. It's enough to make me want to give up on the whole series. I'll be honest, sometimes I gaze away from the lovely, embracing light of my television when it's been on this season. I can take solace when this happens however, knowing that my fellow editor Jackie, will always be there to catch me up.
From Film Editor Lisa McKay:
There are so many movies suitable for Halloween viewing that it's no wonder the film writers had horror on their minds this week.
Iloz Zoc writes a sharp review (under great duress!) of Saw III, a movie not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach. Fortunately, this review is suitable for everyone. Mind the bloody chunks.
