My close friend, Hal Astell runs a blog on films. From the obvious to the obscure. I first met him at the DarkCon Conference in Tempe, Arizona last year, and have since become good friends with him and his lovely bride Dee. After one of my book signings, we talked for hours about films at a depth I have rarely encountered. I honestly have to admit he knows films and movies better than I do. Here is his site if you are interested:
