The Concept of a Muse

September 15, 2011

Do you believe in the concept of a muse? I see people talk about a muse all the time on writing websites or even Facebook, usually in the vein of “My muse sure is being an asshole today.”  But I guess I never thought about having one myself. Now I don’t mean Sharon Stone walking […]

The “t” in New York

August 10, 2011

This blog has unfortunately just been sitting here, lost in the mist that is the blogosphere. So I (Fox) am going to try to repurpose it a little. I’ll talk about the movie business and films, but mainly from a writer’s perspective. I’m also going to use it to discuss screenwriter crap – formatting, character, […]

Fox Reviews The Troll Hunter

May 4, 2011

Let’s recap: among the various “found footage” movies, we’ve had ghosts, witches, cannibals, and even a Godzilla-type monster. But would you ever consider tree-sized (and bigger) trolls to be a subject of one of these “supposed to be for reals” flicks? Would that even work? I’m here to tell you it absolutely does! I caught […]

5 Things I Hate About Recent Horror Movies

December 3, 2010

To go along with Zombie Cat contributor Gary Hamrick’s recent angry rant about how much he hates “horror movies,” I’d like to present my own feelings on the subject. Gary’s column, while incendiary, isn’t completely off base. Most horror fans have felt for a while that not enough strides have been made to further the […]

November 19, 2010

As all our fans (there are literally DOZEN of you) know, I, Fox, am an incredibly successful screenwriter and author when I’m not currently sobbing through our latest bad movie we’re reviewing.

Why Filmmakers Should Watch Bad Movies

November 12, 2010

A friend and colleague of mine always scoffs at my love of bad cinema whenever it comes up. “Why would I want to watch bad movies?” he says with a snicker. “I want to make good movies, so I watch good movies.” Unfortunately for my misguided friend, he’s human, just like me. And like all […]

5 Atmospheric Horror Movies for Your Halloween Bash

October 29, 2010

We’ve all been to those lame ass Halloween parties where the host thought it would be “hilarious” to throw on some goofy Halloween music for the soundtrack. Between the 20th repeat of “Monster Mash” and the third cover of “Thriller,” you put your stale chips and crappy Bud Light down and go home, probably to […]
