The Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk was a wonder of the aviation world when it first appeared at air shows and exhibitions in 1989. Looking like something that Darth Vader might fly in a STAR WARS movie, the Nighthawk was the first warplane designed with signiture reduction ("stealth") at the core of its design. At the time, the Nighthawk was a generation ahead of any other aircraft or defensive system of its era. During its three decades of service, the F-117A flew combat missions during numerous air campaigns from Panama to the Persian Gulf. And for the dozens of books and hundreds of magazine articles, there have been surprisingly few actual accounts of what it was like to fly the Nighthawk into combat. That has changed however, with the publication by Zenith Press (@Zenith_Press) of STEALTH FIGHTER: A YEAR IN THE LIFE OF AN F-117 PILOT.

Boo! Horror expert A.J. Hakari takes on Michael Myers and the Halloween film franchise during this visit to Movie Addict HQ. Also known as The Mad Movie Man, Hakari has written movie reviews and film commentary for such outlets as Terror Tube, Classic Movie Guide, Review Express, ReelTalk Movie Reviews and his own popular blog CineSlice.
The Michael Myers saga began back in 1978 with the release of John Carpenter's scary Halloween, which spawned an additional eight movies. Many horror fans believe that Michael Myers is the most evil character on film. If so, in what way is he more frightening than such villainous icons as Hannibal Lecter, Darth Vader, Dracula, The Mummy, etc.? Hakari plans to cover that topic as well as the popularity of the Halloween movies, how they have influenced the horror genre, the best and worst offerings of this franchise, importance of the theme music, standout performances in the Halloween films, and the Rob Zombie reboot of the franchise.
Waking Up the Ghost? I’ll let Marilyn explain:
“… the first time I heard that expression, I was sitting on a deserted island in the Exumas, with a jaundiced Bahamian named Sands. I think it is also the first time a Bahamian man has ever refused a free drink. What Sands meant, was that the icy beer I offered would lead to another, and another and another; it was safer to keep the Ghost in check by not drinking at all.”
A year and a half into her recovery Marilyn shares some insight on keeping the spirit(s) at bay.

While the word antagonist is the modern accepted word in stories, there is a difference between an antagonist and a layered villain. An antagonist is the obstacle. A villain is a thinking counterpart to the protagonist, acting as the protagonist’s dark mirrored reflection that shatters the façade to show us the protagonist as their true self. As the Write Pack explores the villain we toss out Nazis, Vampires, Darth Vader, Dracula, Zombies, Moriarty, The Joker, Javert and more. We explore the seductive aspects of the villain and evil.
How do you create a layered villain? Why is the villain so necessary? What makes a villain memorable? What drives the villain? Are there types of villains? How does the villain tie to the black moment? Is there a relationship between the Villain and the Hero?
