So, recently, I’ve gone from skipping links posts to having these posts be the only thing I’m updating on the site lately. That’s due to having a bit of a crisis of where to go from this point forward, plus I’ve been hit up with a few freelance projects for clients lately — which is a good thing for me personally, but a bad thing for people who enjoy this site as my time is being eaten up. Anyway, here’s this week’s (brief) list. Hmmm, perhaps others are in the same boat and not blogging as much…
Electric Sheep examines the little-examined sub-genre of sci-fi “monster women” movies, such as The Wasp Woman, which has the best poster of a creature not actually seen the film. And in related reading matter, they also review the new book House of Psychotic Women: An Autobiographical Topography »

If you’re a fan of action movies, particularly those that went direct to video in the 1990′s, you might know the name Maria Ford. A recurring co-star of Don “The Dragon” Wilson (she appeared alongside Wilson in four of his films, including Futurekick, Ring of Fire 1 & 2 and Night Hunter), Ford was also a staple performer in many of Roger Corman’s Dtv efforts in the same decade…

With over 50 credits to her name, she’s appeared everything from sleazy skin flicks such as The Key to Sex to family-friendly comedies such as Addams Family Reunion and Beethoven’s 5th…
These are 10 of her best films:

The astronomical success of The Avengers and its $200 Million worth of state-of-the-art CGI effects shows how far the Marvel Universe has evolved. Marvel Comics first foray into film was a 1966 syndicated package of cartoons called Marvel Superheroes that ran on local TV stations. Marvel comics announced the upcoming series in the “Marvel Bullpen Bulletins” of the November 1966 issues, stating “It won’t be long before our swingin’ super-heroes make their star-studded debut on TV, appearing five nights a week – that’s right, five – count ‘em -five nights a week, for a half-hour each night. So you’ve just got time to make sure your set’s in good working order – check your local paper for time and station – and prepare to have a ball!”
