As Echoba.se’s resident petrolhead, I get my Top Gear fix in the off-season with Discovery Channel’s awesome TV show Fast N’ Loud. I’ve written about it extensively before; and since we’ve spent time defending […]

I first discovered ‘Krazy Kat’ – the brilliant, absurdist work of cartoonist George Herriman – when I was around 9 years old. I grew up with a  father who was one of those depression-era babies obsessed by relics of his childhood. They reminded him, he would say, of a simpler time. “Things were better back […]

Ayn Rand is one of the most misunderstood and polarizing writers of the 20th century, and today is a date that will forever live in Randian infamy; the eve upon which her infamous stage play The Night of the 16th January was set.

If I told you that the movie the title refers to has to do with mental health and is based on a book what Best Picture winner would you probably think of? 1975’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest? You’d be wrong. Yes while that movie was based on a book and does deal with […]

Back in March, we told you about the upcoming YouTube fan film, staring impressionst Jamie Costa as a young Han Solo. Now it’s live – and worth watching. Disney/Lucasfilm is releasing a spin-off movie about the young Han Solo, due to hit cinemas in May 2018. But I’ve always been more interested in the homemade, crowd-funded […]

Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence star in a big-screen, all-American adaptation of BBC’s Red Dwarf. Right? When my wife and I headed off to see Passengers last night, I had no idea that it was an American big-screen version of the classic BBC series Red Dwarf.
