The Matrix 4 has puzzled me ever since it was announced a few months ago. I was content living in a world where there were only had three Matrix films.

Why is it so difficult to write about the new Star Wars films?! In a perfect world, I would come here and start breaking down my thoughts of the movie discussing what worked, what didn’t work, and what has me excited for the future of the franchise. Yet, life within the Star Wars fandom is less than perfect. In fact, the levels of toxicity are … Continue reading Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker- Your Feelings Are the Only Ones That Matter

I had all of them from Prince … Continue reading I Have the Power… Of Nostalgia
That’s not just the heat that has you short of breath, sweating in weird areas, and thinking that you were a victim of The Snap when you walk outside (sorry, I’m not calling it The Blip). No, a lot of that fire that you’re feeling is coming from San Diego as Day Three of SDCC brought the fire, the heat, and any other hot analogies … Continue reading SDCC Day 3- The Watchmen, Picard Returns, & Marvel’s Big Night
