Since 2014 is all but over (okay, it’s over), Marco does what many others do – best-of-the-year list. He actually thinks he’s the only one indulging in such a thing! Bless.
In which our critic ponders about life in the 21st century and rambles on Polish critical darling Ida and cheerful seasonal rumination Black Mirror: White Christmas before his body gets hijacked for DESTRUCTCAST interview duties.
It’s Noshavember at Casa di Marco, which means his beard is taking care of this month’s POP CULTURE DESTRUCTION, as it joins friend of Schlock Robert Iveniuk in a discussion about superhero cinema before reviewing the recent Wolfenstein: The New Order AND check out a couple of animation-related art books. Also: news!
This Halloween Marco confronts true horror – his appreciation of Michael Bay and Transformers: Age of Extinction. Also genuine horror in the face of Jeff VanderMeer’ Acceptance, Jesse Jacobs’ Safari Honeymoon and dark European anti-fairytale Beautiful Darkness. And more!
I love how as the sun starts to set the skies above my neighbourhood come alive with bats. It’s probably thanks to a couple of seemingly…
Pop Culture Destruction returns after an all too short hiatus, as Marco gets a few new voices to join in the destroying of all pop culture. Check it out for talk on Under the Skin, Jeff Vandermeer’s Authority and Grant Morrison’s The Multiversity, as well as Doctor Who and holiday talk. If only we also went on holiday…
This month Marco goes full Godzilla, and in between doing monster noises and stomping around the office he got to write about not one, not two but THREE Godzilla films from recent years. Also featured are Transistor, a selection of TV work by one Masaaki Yuasa, a chapbook by Schlock-featured writer Angela Slatter and a local artist by the name of Fastidju. Oh, and some guys are remaking the intro to Ghost in the Shell? Crazy!
Marco has a bumper POP CULTURE DESTRUCTION this month, as he chews on NOAH, JODOROWSKY’S DUNE and even some surely perverted Japanese cartoon or another. And that’s before Teodor butts in the reviewing of a pair of short story collections, courtesy of Chômu Press. Also – donut cats! Everybody loves donut cats, right?
Marco mourns the finale of his favourite cartoon show with opinions on the likes of the 2014 Robocop remake, Jeff Vandermeer’s Annihilation and graphic novella Genesis, as well as an admission of his love for The Rock. Not that we blame him, mind. We love that guy too!
POP CULTURE DESTRUCTION returns for 2014, with Marco’s takes on Thor: The Dark World, the BBC’s Sherlock, the latest Mogwai album, and more! Also talk on THREE (count them!) manga series and what he’s been up to during the last month. SIGH. To think we assumed there was a valid reason for this column being basically a month late…
