At long last, another review. I think Oblivion is the perfect title for this movie, since I now want to wipe all traces of it from my memory.

Two new pages today, one on the novel The Midwich Cuckoos by John Wyndham, the other on the three film versions of the story, two of which are titled Village of the Damned.

Well, it took a lot longer getting around to this review than I had anticipated, but work has been full and I've also been a bit under the weather at times. Anyway, I've just uploaded a review that encompasses the novel Phoenix Without Ashes by Edward Bryant as well as the graphic novel of the same name by Harlan Ellison, both of which are based on Ellison's Writer's Guild Award winning pilot script for the ill-fated TV series The Starlost. There's a few other tidbits thrown in to round out the whole story.

Well, those Mayans were dead wrong, and in spite of the fact there is a 13 in this year's date I have a suspicion it will be a very lucky year.
All of last year's updates have been archived, and are accessible through the link at the upper left of each page on the site. It was a pretty good year for the Gate, with reviews of sixteen movies and eleven books, probably the most active since the first couple of years. We are nearing a total of 300 pages, with 293 at last count. The first review of the year will be along in a few days, probably over the weekend. I have just a bit to read in a book that has a peripheral connection to the main one the review will be about.
