Pop Culture League Challenge: House of Wax


House of Wax

The local Wax Museum is having a fire sale and you have the opportunity to add a life-size, life-like action figure to your collection. Who do you choose?

Been a busy week… finally getting to the point where I can sit down and write something out now.  If I could get my hands on a Life-Size Action Figure I would make one of two choices…


Assuming when we say Life-Size we mean HUMAN size I would love to have a Godzilla standing in the corner of my living room. It would have to be one of the early versions of Godzilla, that is when I thought he looked his best.


Now if it really meant life size, I obviously would not be able to fit good old Gojira into the corner… so in that case I would have to go with Director Phil Coulson from Agents of SHIELD.  Coulson has become my favorite Marvel character since he first started appearing in the Marvel movies. I love the normal, everyday person aspect of the character in a world full of super-powers and abilities.

That is what I have for now… I will try to start adding some links to other league posts tonight…

Happy Birthday Gojira!



61 years ago on November 3 1954 the Toho Production Company released the first in what would end up being a long series of movies. GOJIRA!  To Celebrate 61 years of Kaiju greatness I am starting a project this week. Once a week I will watch one of the many Kaiju movies listed below and then post a review of the movie on the Friday of that week.  This week I will start off this project by watching and posting about War of the Gargantuas! I am starting with this one, because it is the first movie of the genre that I remember seeing. Look for the post Friday afternoon. Continue reading “Happy Birthday Gojira!”

League of Extraordinary Bloggers – Watchlist

I have become very lazy as of late when it comes to my website… Time to try to change that.

This weeks topic is:

What’s on your Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, DVD, movie, TV watch list?

There is no way I can cover everything I have on my watch list between all the places… that is just too many items… probably more then I will ever actually get thru! I will just cover the top ones that I am working my way thru right now…


The top item on our watchlist right now, is this strange little TV show that my wife discovered called Fringe. We had watched the first season and the start of the second when they first aired, but fell behind when our second child was born. We had really enjoyed what we had seen, but do to the nature of the show we gave up shortly after falling behind and missing episodes. Recently I realized they had the entire series both on Amazon Prime and Netflix so we have started to make our way thru the series.


Fringe has also helped remind me of my love of the X-Files. So I have started watching an episode a day of the Adventures of Mulder and Scully.



Godzilla-9-300x226Pacific Rim re-awoke a childhood love of Kaiju movies. I have been watching as many as possible of them on Netflix, Youtube and Amazon Prime. Godzilla, Gamera, Rodan, Daimajin, etc. I have started writing a series of posts on the Godzilla movies. I hope to start posting some of them soon!


Having finished watching the entire run of Foyle’s War and Inspector Lewis earlier this fall, I have also gone back and started watching Inspector Morse on Netflix. I love mysteries in general, but British ones even more so. They, unlike the american shows, very rarely feel the need to show the gore. They just concentrate on the mystery.


And speaking of Mysteries there is also Mrs. Fishers Murder Mysteries. another one I am slowly working thru the season of.


And finally. On the watchlist for tonight with the family and probably again Christmas Eve is my all time favorite Christmas movie… White Christmas.
