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

The latest entries in the “Fantastic Beasts” and “Star Wars” movie franchises share one painful thing in common: A totally uninspired twist in which a main character adopts a famous last name that you’d only recognize if you’re a fan of the series. 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

Ranking All 12 Star Wars Theatrical Films | Column from the Editor

A while ago, our film critic, Alex Stewart, ranked all 9 Star Wars Episodes. As a huge Star Wars geek, I wanted to go one step further: To rank all Star Wars films that premiered in the theater, which accounts for some 12 movies (don’t expect to find the Ewoks films or the “Star Wars Holiday Special.”). 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. Not in the top echelon at all, Valiant comics fill a specific niche. Their heroes, while having flashy, memorable branding, are often more serious than most DC superheroes, and that’s because they were born … Continue reading The 2020s Could Be the Decade of Valiant Superhero Films: “Bloodshot” Movie Trailer Commentary | Column From the Editor

2020 Oscars Recap & Reactions | Column from the Editor

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
