The LEGO Star Wars Halloween special is silly, spooky fun

The LEGO company’s animated spoofs of famous franchises can never be accused of taking themselves too seriously, and the new LEGO Star Wars Halloween special on Disney+ is no exception.  In Terrifying Tales, Resistance pilot Poe Dameron has to make an unexpected stop on the lava planet of Mustafar, which

WHY THE SUN NEEDS TO SET ON THE GALACTIC EMPIRE

Two of the most recent science fiction films and television series are adaptations of two of the most beloved and seminal works of Science Fiction literature. Dune, by Frank Herbert is about to be released in theatres all over the world, and Foundation by Isaac Asimov is currently streaming as

What if…Disney+ released a Star Wars themed “What If…?” animated series?

So far, the animated Marvel Cinematic Universe series “What If…?” on Disney+ has been a fascinating playground for creators to experiment with storytelling and explore possibilities outside of what we’ve already seen in the live-action films.  I would love to see Disney+ release a similar animated show set in the

Movie review: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Perhaps it’s too soon to say this, but I’m going to go ahead and do it anyway: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is one of my favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe films, definitely in my top 5 and maybe even in my top 3. I really, really, really

The Alpha Male Isn’t

You may have run into one of these guys. They’re big, maybe bearded, scowling. “I am a dominant Alpha male by nature,” they say. “I’m a Bull… a primal hunter. I have no time for any liberal/democrat rhetoric or narrative. I don’t support BS movements and I bow to no

Movie review: Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise’

When I first heard that Disney was making a movie version of the theme park ride “Jungle Cruise,” my initial response was a skeptical, “Really?” And then I actually watched the trailer and my skepticism transformed into, “Well, this actually looks quite delightful.” The historical setting, over-the-top action/adventure sequences, and

Stephen Hickman (April 9, 1949 – July 16, 2021)

Stephen Hickman passed away last week. His was not a household name, if any illustrator can be said to be one. He was not as well known as a Frazetta or Boris but within the illustration world, Hickman was a giant. Stephen Hickman was an award-winning illustrator, sculptor and writer,

Why you should be paying attention to Star Wars: The High Republic

There’s a lot of excitement surrounding the release of all the upcoming Star Wars projects on Disney+ — and understandably so. Longtime fan favorite Boba Fett is back (and better than ever) thanks to The Mandalorian, and he’s appearing in his own spinoff series later this year. Ewan McGregor is

Fly me to the Moon

When people think of the moon they think of a dull, grey, featureless rock with no atmosphere, and in real life, that’s kind of the way that it is. I mean, sure, the moon has its phases, like this week’s full Strawberry Moon, but that’s for people on the ground.

Why ‘Loki’ shouldn’t answer all the questions it raises

I thought WandaVision on Disney+ was really trippy, but it’s got nothing on Loki. So far the show has delved into time travel, cosmic beings who control events throughout history, and variant copies of the same people from multiple realities — and this is just the first two episodes.  The
