"I first read these classic stories from 'The Golden Age Of Science Fiction' in the mid-1970s. In the 21st Century they helped me understand the inexplicable. 'A Rose For Ecclesiastes' goes down smooth, 'Mars Is Heaven!' sticks in your throat, 'Scanners Live In Vain' will not nourish you & 'The Roads Must Roll' will ditch you. (Also see volumes 2A & 2B)"

"Superbly muscled Arnold Schwarzenegger plays an ex-Army officer whose daughter is kidnapped. Uncharacteristically brutal fight scene with Vernon Wells (The Toecutter from 'The Road Warrior'). I have enjoyed Arnold Schwarzenegger's roles throughout his career"
Five Easy Pieces [VHS]

"A classic film about filial guilt & cultural disenchantment. Superior in all respects to the film 'Throw Momma From The Train'. I have enjoyed Jack Nicholson's roles throughout his career"
The Right Stuff [VHS]

"This 1983 film (4 Academy Awards) chronicles pioneering human achievement. Yet even after the dramatic salvage of the (another inspiring film) Apollo 13 mission, some of the public began losing interest in the space program"

American Werewolf in Paris [VHS]
American Werewolf in Paris [VHS]
"I visited the Eiffel Tower & I viewed the gargoyle tableaus at Notre Dame de Paris, but this 1997 film makes me wonder if I sleepwalked through Paris. Tied with 'Underworld' (a vampire/werewolf film) for the best werewolf film that I know"
Tank Girl [VHS]

"I do not give feminist issues a high ranking; but in the end, power & water are the only issues that truly matter. I have sought long for an affordable copy of Lori Petty playing 'Tank Girl'. Visual dynamite"
