Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

bvsFollowing the Events of Man of Steel, Dawn of Justice follows the collision course between Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent after the destruction of Metropolis.  Bruce Wayne (aka Batman) lives in fear of what Superman could do if he went rogue and feels Supes is a threat that needs to be taken down.  His paranoia isn’t helped by Machiavellian social engineering done by fellow billionaire Lex Luthor that makes the two super heroes showdown inevitable.

Back home.

My little venture didn’t pan out.  It’s not worth the investment with what little web design skills I have.  The money I put in didn’t quite match what I got out of it (nothing).

So, back to doing this for fun.reality.png

New Site is Up!

The Mind of Madness has transformed into Midnight Madness.

Catch the Madness at!


“If you’re good at something, NEVER do it for free”.  — Joker, “The Dark Knight”.

Over the past year, I’ve been seriously considering stepping up this blog and making it into a website.  Writing is something that is a strong passion of mine even as I tell myself “you suck!” constantly; however, I have had many positive comments on my reviews and stories over the past few years and it has led me to believe I should receive cash from it.  And in the interest of full disclosure, I got hurt at work last year and have been unemployed since.  I have a lot of free time to invest in this venture at the moment and feel I should go full steam ahead.

I’ve purchased a domain and am working on getting my feet wet in the world of web design and I hope to port over all the content from this blog.  The Mind of Madness has turned from a hobby shared only with close friends that has turned into a passion project over the course of the past six years and I’ve enjoyed having all of you come on board.  I appreciate all the comments and likes fellow bloggers have been kind enough to bestow upon me.  I’ll keep you guys updated on details as they are finalized, and if any of you have experience with incorporating WP into a website and have any pointers, please let me know.


Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981)


I first came across Dark Night of the Scarecrow on TBS while channel surfing sometime in the early 90’s.  I saw it was a horror movie with Larry Drake, whom I loved in Darkman and Dr. Giggles (but mainstream audiences knew from L.A. Law) and I knew I had to watch it.  The opening of the film and the music set a sinister tone which culminated with a dog attacking a young girl.  I was uncharacteristically disturbed and had to change the channel.  The memory stuck with me and I always planned to catch up with this film.  Flash forward a quarter-century to yesterday afternoon, and I finally watched the entire thing and it has instantly become one of my favorite films.

“My Friend Dahmer” by Derf Backdorf (2012)

I first heard about this graphic novel/memoir hybrid when it was first released a few years ago, and while I thought it seemed interesting, I’d no serious inclination to track it down.  It’s funny how sometimes these things end up finding me.  I’m on a book binge recently was browsing through the local library yesterday when I happened upon My Friend Dahmer.  I checked it, came home, and binged on it.  At about halfway through, I realized My Friend Dahmer was having a negative affect on my psychological well-being.  I had to put it down.  I woke up unable to sleep around 3 am today and finished this book over a cup of coffee.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)


Let me start off by saying two things:

1)  In high school I was a big Star Wars fan.  Time has eroded this.

2)  This review contains spoilers and assumes you’ve seen the film.

The Force Awakens is the first of the new new Star Wars trilogy of sequels and follows a new group of heroes and villains as they square off for control of the galaxy.  After defeating the empire in Return of the Jedi the rebel alliance is now again trying to defend the freedom of the galaxy against the First Order — a group trying to reinstate the Empire (at least that’s what I think — the film never explains this).  The First Order is helmed by new Sith Lord, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver, Girls, and I just threw up a bit in my mouth).  Continue reading
