I was offered a chance to read and review a novel written by Edwin Herbert. The write-up that his publicist sent was quite intriguing and something that was definitely up my alley: Vatican conspiracies, history, mystery, and adventure. Edwin Herbert is president of his local free thought society and has been a regular op-ed newspaper columnist on topics concerning science, skepticism, and the mythical roots of various religions. Mythos Christos is his debut novel. Meet me after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
I love working for Biff Bam Pop because not only do I get to interview some really cool people, I also get to review films and television series. This time, our fearless leader, Andy Burns, asked me to review Zhen Lyu’s science fiction book, Intruders. It was an interesting read, but would the book make a great gift idea? Pull up that easy chair and meet me after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
I can’t say this enough! I love working for Biff Bam Pop! Not only do I get to review some awesome television shows, but I get to interview the actors who star in them. When I was offered the chance to interview Jeff Teravainen, who plays Lieutenant Anders on Syfy’s space opera, Dark Matter, I jumped at the chance.
Earlier this week I had the opportunity to speak with Canadian actress Carolina Bartczak, known for her work in Smurfs 2 and Brick Mansions. In X-Men: Apocalypse, opening this week in North America, Carolina plays the small, yet pivotal role of Magda, Magneto’s (Michael Fassbender) wife. Meet me after the jump for the interview.
I was asked to view a film called Against the Wild 2: Survive the Serengeti which was written, produced and directed by Richard Boddington.

The Biff Bam Pop! Podcast Network presents The GAR! Podcast, the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It’s an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world, coming to you from across the vastness of suburban New Jersey via Skype.
This week, we’re recorded live from the 2016 Camden Comic Con, and interviewing the legendary comics artist and writer Neil Vokes, co-creator of Eagle and Death’s Dark Angel. You may also know his work from The Black Forest, The Wicked West, and Parliament of Justice. He is one of the best black and white artists to ever grace the form, and over the years has even tried his hand at Superman, Spider-Man, and Tarzan. See and hear more after the jump.
Our own Andy Burns had the opportunity to sit in on an interview this week with actor Charlie Cox. The actor has been in “Boardwalk Empire” and “Downton Abbey,” but he’s best known for his portrayal as Matt Murdock in “Marvel’s Daredevil” on Netflix. The highly anticipated second season begins tomorrow on Netflix. Meet me after the jump for the highlights of this enlightening interview with a modern day superhero.
Their zombie apocalypse movie Jeruzalem premiered at the Jerusalem Film Festival last summer, before hitting Fantasia, FrightFest, and Sitges, among other notable festivals. Now it’s out on iTunes, VOD, as well as a run at Toronto’s Carlton Cinema (read our review here). We talked to the brothers about the genesis of the film and where they are headed next.
You’ve discussed how Jeruzalem is not “found footage” but “POV” and that it was the invention of Google Glass that helped you bring your concept to fruition. What other ways does technology impact the narrative of the film that maybe aren’t as apparent to the audience?
Most of the time, when we are making a film we can use an unlimited amount of audio channels but only one channel of video. By using the “smart glass” interface we were able to tell other stories at the same time (in the way that people check their smart phones while watching a film) and that was a great tool for the storytelling. We were also fascinated by the contrast between the history of the old city and the newest wearable technology. Read the rest of this entry
