Without further ado, here’s my complete rankings:  12. Episode … Continue reading Ranking All 12 Star Wars Theatrical Films | Column from the Editor

It’s Time to Consolidate Streaming Services | Column from the Editor

Last year, Disney Plus launched, and this year, NBCUniversal’s Peacock streaming services is set to launch, not long after HBO Max is released to the world.  I’ve reviewed a lot of original content from streaming services in the last year, and by far Netflix has the most volume and highest number of quality original projects. I pay $12.99 for Netflix, and am in the (assumed) … Continue reading It’s Time to Consolidate Streaming Services | Column from the Editor

The 2020s Could Be the Decade of Valiant Superhero Films: “Bloodshot” Movie Trailer Commentary | Column From the Editor

If you’re familiar with comic books, you’ll know that Marvel and DC are not the only comic book publishers who do superhero stories well, and Valiant is one of those publishers.

With the 92nd Academy Awards announced Sunday, here are my reactions, commentary and analysis of the awards: Best Picture Winner: Parasite I’m sure “Parasite” deserves this, but I generally don’t like the Best Picture category because it’s too broad. That being said, “Parasite”’s upset story will be one that will be remembered as the highlight of the night.  Actor in a Leading Role Winner: Joaquin … Continue reading 2020 Oscars Recap & Reactions | Column from the Editor

Doctor Ruth is Absolutely Fine: “Doctor Who” Series 12, Episode 5: Fugitive of The Judoon Commentary | Column from the Editor

Over the past few days, I had some catching up to do, as until last week, I hadn’t finished Doctor Who Series 11.
