Opinion

In November 2017, it was first announced by the news network CNBC that The Walt Disney Company was considering an acquisition of 21st Century Fox. Later that year, a deal was made by the two companies, stating that Fox would sell a portion of it’s assets to the company for $52.4 billion. A bidding war...
Earlier this year, Captain Marvel came out. I saw several reviews for it and, discounting the trolls who universally claim to hate the movie, the response I’ve seen has been mixed to positive. Most, in all fairness, are positive reviews (I also enjoyed it, though my review is not the content of this post), but...
Popular Film, Criticism, and the Oscars
On August 8th, 2018, the organization behind the Academy Awards announced that they were going to issue a new “Best Popular Film” category. Needless to say, an announcement like this stirred a lot of controversy. When I first heard about it, I initially agreed with many of the naysayers. I was worried that this was...
I enjoy speculating a lot. Especially when we still know very little about the thing I’m speculating about. It’s always fun when something I predicted ends up happening. And when it doesn’t, that’s fine too. It’s just fun. Recently in the news, you may have heard that Amazon is creating a Lord of the Rings...
I’ve been waiting to write about this for a long time, ever since rumors/speculation hinted at an upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars spin-off film. I’ve seen a lot of people supportive of the idea, but I’ve also seen a lot of head-scratching. “How can they make an Obi-Wan film?” they ask. “I want a film...
One of the most disputed topics in nerdom is the idea of bringing balance to the Force, in the Star Wars saga. Anakin Skywalker is the one presumed to be the Chosen One, destined to bring balance to that Force. Though even this is in dispute.
Almost all well-known superheroes have been adapted into one video game or another. Nothing fulfills the purpose of a superhero story more than being able to step into that person’s shoes and fight for truth, justice, and…high scores. We are inspired by heroes, we want to emulate them, hence the video game appeal. Of all...
As this site proves, I’m a huge fan of shared universes. Between Star Wars, Marvel, and DC Comics, I have found countless hours of entertainment. One of the biggest shared universes is the Arrowverse, named after the TV show Arrow, which started the timeline. The Arrowverse consists mostly of the shows Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow,...
Star Wars is many things, and has many messages. One of, in my opinion, the most important messages that Star Wars presents is that small and innocent means provide a foil for the mighty. Let’s call that the thesis of this post. In response to the enormous amount of Jar Jar hate that is still...
With the casting of Peter Capaldi as the 12th Doctor, fans immediately discovered that Capaldi had played two other roles in that universe. The first being Lobus Caecilius from the episode “The Fires of Pompeii,” and the second being John Frobisher from the Doctor Who spin-off, Torchwood. While some people would have written this off as coincidence, many...
