George Lucas to Reti...

Word came down from on high last night that the Maker has decided that, with the notable exception of Indy5, Red Tails will be his last big blockbuster film.  He intends to stick to art house movies where he started, and while it didn’t specifically say,...

He secretly took up the mantle of Darth Vader twice in order to duel Luke Skywalker in both Empire and Jedi, and Mark Hamill exposed that secret to the world so as to give the man the credit he deserved.  He’s trained legends—Aragorn, Zorro, Inigo...

I managed to finish out the Empire and Jedi bonus features last night, and I considered doing a write-up for this site about it as I did with A New Hope.  There’s so much to tell, so I still might.  But this morning over coffee I got through the Ep. I bonuses. ...

Review: Captain Amer...

Let’s be honest: director Joe Johnston is a hit-and-miss director at best, but it’s not his style that sullies his reputation, it’s the script he’s handed to work with.  Visually and stylistically, the man excels, doing the best he can with what he’s...

Today is Friday the 13th.  For many, this is a day of unspeakable superstition and bad luck.  I’ve learned over the years to have some faith in the balance of the universe.  Where the many have a bad day, I have one “super”...

Truth, Justice, and ...

In one fell swoop, writer David S. Goyer has unwritten and undermined 73 years of hardlined moral code from the Man of Steel in a move that is certainly making his creators roll in their graves. Read about it here. These are my thoughts on the matter. Superheroes are no stranger to real...

Given all of the recent comic discussion on this site and in the podcast, I figure it’s about time to discuss the world’s favorite warrior princess from my point of view. She’s come a long way since her debut in Dec. 1941, and that’s probably why I appreciate the...
