Wanted: Jaws Quadrilogy Box Set

In honor of Shark week, I'm reiterating my annual demand. I want Universal to release a collector-oriented box set of all the Jaws films, given the same kind of care that the Alien Quadrilogy got years ago, with two versions of each movie included.

Why? Because for as famous as these movies are, they are frustratingly difficult to come by.

Eighty-Five Days and Counting

I’m forty now, and I don’t like to rush things.  When I was a kid (I don’t want to admit that I grew up), days would be spent hoping for Christmas or summer or vacation.  Realizing that time goes by waaayy too fast, I want to slow things down. 

But I must admit that I look forward to Halloween.  And that started this week.

Masterpiece Optimus Prime Reissue

TransformersAsia has announced on their Facebook page that they'll be reissuing Masterpiece Optimus Prime. This is good, as Hasbro made maybe twenty of them the first time around and most of us weren't able to get one, myself included.

Godzilla 2

Probably the biggest bombshell dropped at Comic Con last weekend was the announcement of a Godzilla sequel, hinted to include Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah.

I am hyped and scared at the same time. I don't know if these guys know what they're getting into.

The Bonnet House Ft. Lauderdale

Travel south on A1A just past Sunrise Boulevard and you’ll notice the walled-off area guarding lush flora instead of high-rise hotels or tacky shops/bars.  I have lived in South Florida now for thirty-four years and just realized that that little strip of land houses one of the best attractions to visit, The Bonnet House.

Ghosts of the Southern Edge: The Basilica of Saint Mary Star of the Sea

After having encountered graveyards, a writer’s ghost, and a possessed doll, I felt it was time to align my mojo back to the light side.  On the morning Lola, Sarah, and I headed out we made one additional stop.

I felt the strongest sense of spirit and the most island feel from the Basilica of Saint Mary, Star of the Sea.
