The Cinema on the Rocks Newsreel

Phoenix Comicon 2015!

May went out with a bang thanks to the awesomeness that was Phoenix Comicon 2015! Thank you to everyone who came by on Thursday to attend the "So You Want To Do A Podcast?" panel Ziggy co-hosted with other podcasters from the Four Eyed Radio Network! It was a fun panel and we had a great audience. It was wonderful to meet you all!

Of course, there was plenty more to take in at Phoenix Comicon. In the first of a series of articles, Ziggy discusses the fantastic cosplay, and why he feels that it truly represents the heart and soul of the convention. "The Cosplay's The Thing" - check it out! Then have a look Ziggy's second article about the con, wherein he explains why it's truly "A Gathering of Heroes."

Look Who's Talking...

Our Philosophy & Rating System

At Cinema on the Rocks, we believe that whoever said that life is too short to drink cheap wine was an idiot.  After all, how can you truly appreciate the sublime flavor of great Chianti without having also sipped Mad Dog 20/20?  Or, on the other end of things, you may never discover that most Dom Perignon is actually overpriced, overhyped swill until you try the reasonably priced Brut.  This is (and was and shall always remain) the Doom Cheez Philosophy.

Each of our feature-length movie reviews has a short version (call it a "shot"), and a more in-depth long version (think of it as a "highball").  Short film reviews just get the long version. Webseries reviews include an overview look at the series in general, followed by a rundown of highlights from episodes and/or seasons. In all cases, we offer cheese and alcohol pairings with our reviews in lieu of stars or numeric ratings.  (We assume, of course, that you are mature enough to handle these things.) 

Welcome to Cinema on the Rocks. I invite you to please sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

-Ziggy Berkeley, proprietor of Cinema on the Rocks
