When Harry Met Retail

Second Potter video flies out of stores: “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” worked its magic on the home video front, selling more than 6 million VHS and DVD combined units nationwide in its first day in release, according to several industry sources. While Warner Home Video executives declined comment on sales of the latest “Potter” release, when taking ... Read More »

Tales from the Thousand and One Nights

Know O Prince, that once upon a time, there was a collection of such tales as could freeze the blood with trepidition, or stoke the raging fires of the imagination anew with tales of wickedness, debauchery, wonder and faith; tales of fantastic creatures, of magic and mystery, of the squalid and the high.

Bowling For Bowling

David Hardy analyzes Michael Moore’s Bowling For Columbine as a “documentary” per the Academy’s own rules and finds it wanting: The Michael Moore production “Bowling for Columbine” just won the Oscar for best documentary.

Kicking the crap out of evil in pink pleather pants

I’d just like to say, I appreciate the female fantasy role that Buffy The Vampire Slayer represents. She pouts, she has trouble with her relationships. She has the sexiest “Watcher” that could be imagined (Giles! Baby!). She has a wardrobe better than barbie. And yet she kicks the crap out of evil! Personally! With actual kicks and punches and backflips. ... Read More »

The Black Water Anthologies

Alberto Manguel’s anthologies of fantastic literature (Black Water, The Book of Fantastic Literature and Black Water 2, More Tales of the Fantastic) are, excuse the well-deserved pun, excellent as well as supernatural. The stories are all examples of good literature, all page-turners, and all are accompanied by very interesting and often illuminating introductions written by Manguel himself. It is unacceptable ...
