Spartacus: Ancient Rome

Arena in Ancient Rome Welcome to Ancient Rome. A time of majestic architectural wonders encompassing endless Roman pursuit of cruel and bloody pleasures. Slaves and gladiators aren’t citizens, they aren’t even human beings – merely tools for whatever ends Romans see fit. It’s a different era and different rules. No equality here, just power in […]

Spartacus: Lucretia and Gaia

Lucy Lawless comeback as Lucretia in Spartacus: Gods of the Arena Spartacus – the critically-acclaimed series from Starz which combines sex, swords, sandals, more sex and lashings of gore, often gets a bad press for being historically inaccurate. But it has a great cast and some superb scriptwriting. It also sees the resurrection of that […]

Alternate Universe

Alternate Stories from Parallel Universes A parallel universe is a hypothetical self-contained reality coexisting with one’s own.

Any book, movie or a TV show that deals with history, real life events or is based on something created before […]

Raze. Zoe Bell as Sabrina

Raze

Back to Xena and Forward with Violence One of the guilty pleasure movies for people who are a bit sick and love violence too much for some reason. Like me. Sometimes. I love watching women fight. Sorry, but I just do. And I don’t need any other excuse to make this video. Except maybe that […]

Spartacus Vengeance Cast

Spartacus: Vengeance

Spartacus vs Glaber Gaius Claudius Glaber is one of my favorite characters in Spartacus. Craig Parker is an amazing actor from New Zealand who can be seen in many TV shows as a twisted wicked bad guy. He loves such roles and I love seeing him as an antagonist. With the same attention drawing acting […]

Spartacus: Gods of the Arena

Before Spartacus: Gannicus Imagine how much better history class would be if the Starz cable network rewrote all major historical events. Wild-eyed groupies would’ve lined Revolutionary War battlefields, cheering and pulling their breasts out. The headshot that killed President Abraham Lincoln would’ve been a donkey punch delivered by an overly enthusiastic transgender dominatrix. And on that monumental day in July 1969, Neil […]

New Zealand. Landscape. Mountains

New Zealand

New Zealand as Middle Earth As the home of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy and the subsequent Hobbit movies, the country had been resoundingly stamped as a center for fantasy film production and lovingly referred to by many as “Middle Earth”. New Zealand has been a key filming and production location for some of the most popular and highest grossing […]
