A Certain Point of View

Before I get started with this post, it should be known that this is going to get super geeky. And it's mostly a ramble based on thoughts that enter my head as I'm writing... You have been warned. The other day, an old college friend of mine tweeted out an article found at Comic Book … Continue reading A Certain Point of View

Modern Trailers

I recently came across a trailer for The Empire Strikes Back. I know, that's not anything new, right? But it wasn't one of the trailers that would have advertised the movie back in 1980. It's something new. The folks behind the YouTube channel AD_edits cut a new trailer for the classic Star Wars film. It's … Continue reading Modern Trailers

Here’s Another…

I'm sorry if it seems like yesterday and today are kind of just placeholders. But this is another classic video and stays in the vein of Star Wars. But it also pays tribute to the great John Williams. Enjoy... Feature Photo by James Pond on Unsplash

I know... I'm one of those guys who likes to complain that Hollywood can't come up with any original ideas anymore. But I get it... I really do. Sequels are easy.

I Took My Mom to See a Star War

If the title didn't give it away, let this first line be your fair warning... THERE WILL BE SPOILERS FOR STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER.

Making Mom Watch Star Wars

ABC, of course, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Disney. Therefore, any time anything in relation to Disney or any of its properties needs … Continue reading Making Mom Watch Star Wars
