Review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Posted December 26th, 2017 at 07:44 AM by Viperlord (Viperlord's History Blog)

I have written one long movie review before, for The Battle of the Five Armies, and prefaced it by stating I was an unabashed fanboy of Lord of the Rings, both Tolkienís work and Peter Jacksonís adaptation. I issue much the same warning here; I have been a Star Wars fan since I was a child, I have seen every Star Wars film, played numerous Star Wars games, read much of the Star Wars Expanded Universe (when that was a thing), and viewed some of the television series spawned by the movies. As with...

My Favorite Sun Wukong Moments from Journey to the West

By Jim R. McClanahan

What are your favorite Sun Wukong moments from the great Chinese classic Journey to the West (1592)? Is it his birth from stone and quest for immortality, or his attainment of the golden-hooped iron staff and rebellion against heaven? Perhaps itís his battle with the rhinoceros demon or his own doppelganger? The three moments I have in mind have less to do with grand adventures or shows of...

Frankenstein Book Review

3/5 Stars

By Jim R. McClanahan

I just finished reading Frankenstein (1818) for the first time. The novel was nothing like I expected. The movies Iíve seen took great liberties with the actual storyline, and having read the novel, I can see why they did it. The book is for the most part boring fluff.

The Archaeological Origins of Man's Dominion Over Animals

By Jim R. McClanahan

Genesis 1:26 states:
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
This passage has long been cited or paraphrased by people claiming man is superior to animals. However,...
