Since I’m not going out very much these days, I’ve spent quite a lot more time online with my gaming buddies. We’ve poured countless hours into games on Tabletop Simulator (Bargain Quest is the current favorite), played one too many Overwatch matches (when the enemies start to blur together into one entity you know you need to take a break), and have watched copious amounts of movies (we watched Hamilton together, it was awesome).  Recently, when debating which movie wo...

I've been on a movie/TV binge lately (at this rate, who isn't anymore?), and a bunch of news regarding my beloved Star Wars franchise came to my attention this morning, so that's what I'm going to talk about - because I can. I partake in a lot of animated shows, so I am no stranger to Mark Hamill's work outside of Star Wars. He is, truly, "the" Joker as far as I'm concerned, and of course has lent his talents to countless other animated characters, including Fire Lord Ozai from Avatar: The La...

Conventions and conferences have been (and are still being) canceled, movies have been delayed, and filming for a certain hit Netflix series ground to a halt. While we might have to wait just a bit longer to resolve some of the cliffhanger questions from seaso...

Are you running out of streaming shows to binge during quarantine? No worries, John Favreau and The Mandalorian have you covered - the pandemic didn't halt production and the show's second season is still scheduled to release on time. Granted, "on time" means October, so there's still a bit of a wait, but Favreau explained during a digital panel at the ATX Television Festival this weekend that they'd already completed filming before all of the restrictions began. “We were lucky eno...

Now everyone with a Disney+ account can watch the entire Skywalker saga to ho...

With a great number of people now staying at home more due to the public shutdowns and recommendations, Disney has released some movie titles early.  Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was supposed to release this week, but they released it late last week. Frozen 2 has also been released on digital 3 months early on Disney+. With movie theaters closing and reducing capacity, movie release dates pushed back, I think this would be a great time to just start releasing some of these movies ...

What's your favorite film in the MCU? Favorite character? Personally, I love the majority of them and it makes it difficult to pick just one. As excited as I am to see Endgame and the conclusion of 10 years of films, I also hate goodbyes, lol. I've grown attached to the characters and the actors who have played them. I think, as a film, Winter Soldier may be the best put together. But from a pure action and enjoyment standpoint, I really love The Avengers.
