A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… It is a period of civil war. Star Wars fandom, long since divided post The Last Jedi, find themselves at a crossroads. Although the film was met with critical praise, the fandom clashes with each other on the internet. Venom is spewed while fans both old and young believe they have the high ground. It seems that all has … Continue reading I Will Literally Die For Baby Yoda
There was a time, only a few short months ago, where I came here pondering if my Star Wars fandom was broken. Like Luke watching the two suns of Tatooine set, I pondered what would come next for me within this fandom. Was I just tired of a franchise that has meant such a great deal to me? Was I even excited for Episode IX … Continue reading Star Wars Episode IX- Taking One Last Look At My Friends
Oh, these dog days of summer. While we still have a week left in August we are rapidly heading into fall. Pumpkin themed everything has already made itself known and the summer box office has all but closed down for the season. We’re now left to shift gears. From jeans to shorts. From iced tea to pumpkin spice. From baseball to football. This back half … Continue reading Did Breaking Bad Steal Disney’s Thunder?
I was sitting at my desk the other day at work just kind of slowly getting into the day. You know the feeling, the one where you’re being moderately productive but also trying to figure out what memes you’re going to be posting on your sites Facebook page? No, just me? Anyway, I was sitting at my desk and a customer I hadn’t seen in … Continue reading Is My Star Wars Fandom Broken?
There I was today, mostly thinking about what comics I was going to write about for New Comic Book Day over at Fan Fest, when I stole a minute to pop on Facebook. It was there that I saw a fellow Fan Fest writer had posted that the Fox/Disney deal was all but done. You guys remember this, right? I mentioned it awhile back here … Continue reading A Conflict of Emotions- A Fox, Disney, Lucasfilm Story
Summer movie season is one of the most exciting aspects of summer besides the weather and the whole no school thing. The summer isn’t spent rolling out award contenders, no, the summer is saved for blockbusters. Think back to your childhood and all the massive movies that were released during summer vacations. Independence Day, Jurassic Park, Spider-Man, and Terminator 2 are some of the biggest summer movies of all time. Over … Continue reading How Disney Failed Solo
With The Last Jedi only two sleeps away it’s important to catch up on all things Star Wars. I know it probably sounds a little weird, “Kevin, you need to ‘catch up’ on Star Wars?” Not necessarily but when I’m excited about something I like to fully immerse myself in that universe as the release looms. I do it with Marvel movies, I do it with comics or books, … Continue reading The Adorable Creature & Star Wars
Insert those geeky goosebumps and giggles here because after much anticipation the second trailer for Star Wars The Last Jedi dropped last night during one of the dullest first halves of football ever. Seriously, it was 3-2 at the half. That’s a baseball score. I digress. There are more important matters to discuss. I for one have really enjoyed the way Disney has marked The Last Jedi in the … Continue reading The Last Jedi Trailer- Porg Screams, Ice Foxes, and Dark Side Intrigue
Dear JJ Abrams, Thank you. Thank you for preventing even the whisper of conversation that George Lucas could return to direct another Star Wars movie. No one, not even George himself, wants that. Thank you for the universe George, but please don’t touch it anymore. I for one am happy to see that you will be book ending this new trilogy. Episode VII helped rejuvenate and resurrect a franchise that … Continue reading A Letter To The Star Wars IX Director
