KRAMPUS

KRAMPUS – Krampus is a demon/ goat who punishes naughty children in pre-Christian Germanic folk tales. He’s celebrated on Krampuskarten with festivals, greeting cards and parades. Sounds great. But, in large part, Krampus — the movie –disappoints. It attempts to capture the spirit of the 80s horror/ comedy classic film entitled Goonies. What’s wrong with it? It’s too gimmicky, there are too many jump scares and the CGI images are overdone. Forty minutes into the movie nothing has happened other than a dinner and a snow storm. Moments that have horror potential are actually missed opportunities. I really wanted to like this movie but it wasn’t funny and it also wasn’t scary. A cool idea? Yes. A good movie? Clearly, no. 


THE DAY AFTER ROSWELL

THE DAY AFTER ROSWELL – Colonel Philip J. Corso’s memoir, is an account of the purported discovery and subsequent cover-up, detailing a crashed extraterrestrial spacecraft in Roswell NM in 1947. He describes recovered items including alien bodies, UFO instruments, computer chips, metal cloth and fiber optics. According to him, these inventions were reverse engineered and resulted in the advancement of computer science, communications and modern video/ audio entertainment. Published a year before his death, he went on to appearances in the media including Dateline and radio interviews promoting his book. The book’s detractors are numerous include the media, government and scientists. Claiming the assertions are over reaching and not supported by corroboration of others and evidence. Interesting? Yes. Factual? I have no idea.
