    Political Thrillers!

    in Movies

    There was a time, when talking about politics, was taboo. Today, it is common place to read, or hear about one political view or another; expressed openly; and in some case violently.  With so many political scandals being revealed, one tends to wonder what else is being covered up; and in the name of “Diplomacy” of all things. We, as a nation, have given a lot of power, to a few people. People we trust to make “right decisions”, for the good of the country; are those the only decisions being made…”right decisions”? “Too much power in the wrong hands”, can cause chaos. What about “too much power” in the right hands? Good intentions, don’t always deliver good results; then what about “bad intentions”. Politics, Scandals, Greed, Power, Violence; how do we begin figuring it all out? Tonight we’ll tackle “Political Thrillers”. We welcome back “Movie Maven” Ms. Karen D.” to give us her spin on the four, politically based, films up for review!

    The Dead End presents...Thrillers

    in Writing

    What actually constitutes a "Thriller"? Adventure? Action? Mystery? Page-turning ratios?
    Browse around your local B&N (while you still can) and you might notice that the Horror section has dwindled to one or two bookshelves, while Thrillers and Fantasy novels can fill two or three aisles. It's clear that the Horror label is considered a minus to marketing mavens in the publishing industry, and yet--the Thriller and fantasy sections are chock full of -- horror books! 
    Hmmm. So what's the real deal? Join us this Wednesday at 8pm Eastern for a riveting, spine-tingling, bone-chilling, ________ (insert your own thriller cliche here), look at what makes a Thriller…a Thriller.

    Richard Goffman, Author of "Laid So Low" & "Heartless Cruelty"

    in Radio

    Teachers can be heroes. They spend time with kids every day and get to see them under different circumstances, often seeing and hearing what parents never do. Meet fictional high school English teacher, William Bachman, who teaches at Atlantis High School. He is the central character in the series of Jersey Shore thrillers which include Heartless Cruelty and Laid So Low. The main character becomes a reluctant sleuth, and there are plenty of disturbing mysteries to be solved as the books delve into the dark side of the Jersey Shore with issues including sex trafficking, political corruption, and child abuse. Richard Goffman has written a series of fast paced books with engaging characters and the hero is the English teacher. It might come as no surprise that Goffman spent the 1970s teaching English in Long Branch, NJ at the high school and junior high, and these days he’s a professor of writing at Montclair State University. The author based the fictional town Atlantis on Long Branch, NJ and says, “That town had beauty and ugliness, it had familiarity and magical strangeness, and it had enough racial, ethnic and economic diversity to yield no end of characters.” The books are must reads for Jersey Shore fans! Richard Goffman has written textbooks, stories, poetry, plays, screenplays and numerous articles. After the interview, check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.

  • Scottscope Talk Radio 8/25/2015: There Can Only Be One King!

    in Entertainment

    On this edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable interviews filmmaker R.L. Scott about his brand new crime thriller Call Me King!  Exactly how is Call Me King related to R.L. Scott’s similarly themed web series Touye Pwen: Kill Point?  Is the former merely a feature length extension of the latter, or a unique and worthy vision in its own right?  How does R.L. Scott’s blend of martial arts action and underworld intrigue differ from that of the Hong Kong New Wave?  Could his approach to cinema represent a viable alternative for Black filmmakers looking to distinguish themselves in the marketplace?  Could kinetic crime thrillers such as Call Me King be the future of Black cinema?  How has R.L Scott persevered in a marketplace that seeks to pigeonhole Black filmmakers?
