Ready Player One (2018)

In a dystopian future, Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) is a simple-minded, selfish, undeveloped, pop-culture fanatic who we are supposed to like. He, like most people, spends all his time inside the OASIS, a virtual universe where people can be anything, sorta, but tend to go for things that were popular in the 1980s. The OASIS

My Top 10 Yes Songs

It’s time for another list that no one cares about. With films and gaming, I’ve got cred. Music… Well, this is just what I like. And what I like is Yes. Yes started as a psychedelic band, but moved quickly into art rock, creating works of stunning complexity and beauty. They were something new and

The Devil’s Guide to Bards (Part 3: Spells)

Intro This is the Devil’s Typist, here to give you more of The Devil’s thoughts on D&D 5e bards. As always, the Prince of Darkness stopped by, plopped down on my couch with a whiskey on the rocks, and rambled about life, love, sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll, and I’ve done my best to record and

Explanations, Justifications and Options My Version Familiar Spells Familiar Buffs    Explanations, Justifications, and Options OK, why mess with Find Familiar? Easy answer: the spell’s fun. It’s always been fun. It’s one of the most fun spells in the history of D&D (when it was a spell; sometimes it was a fun feat). But in

I fell into an Easter Youtube Rabbit Hole. Was listening to one version of Heaven On Their Minds (my favorite song from Jesus Christ Superstar), which led to another which led to another. So I ranked 29 of them. And you can find a lot of them: Broadway Cast; London Cast; Italian; Korean; Swedish. There

The 1960s

If you’ve missed the explanation for the FOSCARs list, look here. My plan for the FOSCARs was to cover the Golden Age of Hollywood, which ended in the 1960s, but like most movements, there was no moment when it ceased to exist. Some put its demise at 1960, but more for convenience than any solid

Worst F&SF Films of 2018

I’m a little late for my worst fantasy and science fiction of 2018. Still, a late warning is better than none at all.  I’ve no doubt missed some of the sand, but I’ve done my best to look at every film that had a chance to get onto this list. And I’m not counting ultra-low

The 1950s

If you’ve missed the explanation for the FOSCARs, look here. I’ve already found the best films of the 1930s and 1940s, so time to jump into the 1950s. Again, I’ll be going year by year, and keep any larger thought on the decade until I’ve finished each year. 1950 1951 1952 1953 1954 1955 1956

Music can make or break a movie. This was unknown in the late 1920s when talkies began; it was assumed audiences wouldn’t accept music without an onscreen source. But they learned, and film became better for it. I wanted to take a look at my favorite film composers (and simply figure out who are my
