    Making Ultraman Great Again

    After 65 years, Ultraman is finally making it in America. But will his far right politics hinder his rise in the US, or help it?

    (Article originally printed in March 2023 issue of Esquire.)

    “I’ve been in this business for 30 years and I’ve never seen anything like this” said Tate Reynolds, owner of the Granada Theater in Hucksfield, Tennessee to me, as I and the other stood outside the theater in pouring…

    The Mad Executioners

    The League of Frightened Men in: The Mad Executioners 

    Narrator: Central City USA! Your average American metropolitan city, bustling with life and excitement, as well as containing dangers, both within and without.

    ★★★★★

    I would be remiss if I let Women’s History Month pass without talking about my favorite movie directed by a woman, Tamra Davies’ Billy Madison.

    Everyone in 2005: No, no, you don’t understand it’s about more than that.

    Everyone in 2020: Yeah I guess it was pretty pointless wasn’t it?
