Why Not? #MakeSolo2Happen | Column from the Editor 

For some reason, #MakeSolor2Happen is trending on Twitter again.  Why?  I reviewed this film when it came out. In short, 2018’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story” didn’t have a chance. It had an over bloated budget while being a niche story in the “Star Wars” universe, it was coming off the heels of the greatly controversial “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” which came out 5 months … Continue reading Why Not? #MakeSolo2Happen | Column from the Editor

A Non-Review of “SCOOB!” | Column from the Editor

As an independent film critic, I get to pick and choose which new releases I review, which sometimes is also a choice of which films I choose to support financially. This often puts me in a situation where I support films that I greatly disagree with, but want to discuss.  This year’s “SCOOB!” is a film I do not support on principle. I might be … Continue reading A Non-Review of “SCOOB!” | Column from the Editor

Adopting A Famous Last Name Is Not A Clever Twist: A Look Into The Rey Skywalker and Aurelius Dumbledore Reveals | Column From the Editor

Spoilers for both “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” up ahead. For “Fantastic Beasts” its twist comes at … Continue reading Adopting A Famous Last Name Is Not A Clever Twist: A Look Into The Rey Skywalker and Aurelius Dumbledore Reveals | Column From the Editor

Reignite the “Legend of Spyro” Trilogy | Column from the Editor

I’ve finally had the time to enjoy Toys for Bob’s “Spyro: Reignited Trilogy” and I absolutely love it. My very first gaming console was the original PlayStation, and some of my earliest gaming memories are from the first three Sypro games, and it’s just great to see them remastered and accessible on modern home consoles. Please do the “Legend of Spyro” trilogy next. For those … Continue reading Reignite the “Legend of Spyro” Trilogy | Column from the Editor

“Star Wars: Episode X”; An Extremely Unlikely Fan Theory | Column from the Editor

We’re four months removed from “Star Wars: Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker” and yeah, Star Wars is still a flaming mess. Rather than provide a cohesive conclusion to all nine episodes, Lucasfilm and its producers decided to pander to fans by concocting a nostalgia-filled non-ending that leaves the Star Wars universe much more poorer off than when the sequel trilogy started. There will be … Continue reading “Star Wars: Episode X”; An Extremely Unlikely Fan Theory | Column from the Editor

“Tiger King” Dropped At The Perfect Time | Column from the Editor

While we’re all stuck at home, Netflix’s “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” has absolutely dominated online discourse, because of the overall strangeness of the docuseries’ subject matter (Joe Exotic, the G.W. Zoo in Wynnewood, Okla., and his feud with Big Cat Rescue CEO Carole Baskin), and because many of us just need an entertaining distraction in these trying times.  “Tiger King” certainly delivers on that … Continue reading “Tiger King” Dropped At The Perfect Time | Column from the Editor

How The Coronavirus Might Affect The Entertainment Industry | Column from the Editor

COVID-19 is no one’s friend, as across the board, the fast-spreading virus has already caused major economic disruption and the entertainment industry in general stands to lose billions, if not trillions, of dollars, as popular professional sports leagues cancel their season, important conference like E3 are canceled, and prominent festivals like the Cannes Film Festival are thrown into uncertainty. For film, prominent companies like Disney … Continue reading How The Coronavirus Might Affect The Entertainment Industry | Column from the Editor
