The Star Wars Episode IX Trailer Brings My Childhood Full Circle

Star Wars Celebration is going on right now in Chicago and The Force is stronger than ever. That's because Disney has dropped the name of the final "original" trilogy film... Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker. They even announced a release date of December 20. Oh, and they also surprised the world with a little teaser trailer. Gah! Cover your keyboard to protect it from the drool and take a gander! Did you get goose pimples like I did? Seriously. Story wise, not much is explained. But snippets of awesomeness prevail, which no doubt will lead to eight long months of theories and speculation. First, we start out with Rey on ...

This Fanboy Loved Everything About Captain Marvel, Including the Cat

Let me say this right from the start. Captain Marvel is not a great female-lead superhero movie. It's not a feminist-powered, man-bashing film either. Captain Marvel is just an amazingly fun, great movie that happens to have a female lead. It's sad that there even has to be a discussion or a distinction in gender these days when discussing things like entertainment. But apparently that's where we are in society today. I loved Captain Marvel. I thought it was a fantastic film that was yet again a very different type of Marvel movie much in the vein that Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy were. It ties in beautifully with the entire ...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Swings Onto Blu-ray & DVD March 19

There have been loads of Spider-Man variations over the years. Not just different artists or costume changes, but different characters. Spider-Man 2099. Ultimate Spider-Man. Spider-Gwen. Spider-Ham. Ben Reilly. (Sorry, I had to go there.) With the recent release of Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, mainstream America finally got to see them all too! If you missed it, no worries. The award-winning animated film hits digital download on February 26 and Blu-ray/DVD on March 19. I for one, cannot wait to see it again. As a comic fan, I loved just about everything in this film. The animation is slick and so incredibly unique, I can't even describe it. The story is rich ...

Why Did I Wait So Incredibly Long to See Kill Bill

This post contains affiliate links. Okay, so I'm a little late to the party. Technically about 15 years late. But I finally sat down and watched Quentin Tarantino's blood-soaked revenge thriller Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. And I could kill the younger me for not watching it sooner. I have nothing against Tarantino and in fact really dug Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and even Inglourious Basterds. I haven't seen too many of his other films, Kill Bill included, simply because... well, I just never got around to them. That's really the long and short of it. Kill Bill is something I always did want to see though and knew absolutely nothing ...

The Mega Star Wars Holiday Giveaway (Over $600 in prizes)!

As a young farmer from a desert planet named Tatooine proved... there is strength in numbers. One person can find a ragtag bunch of friends (including a fuzzy Wookiee), join a rebellion and topple an Empire. Well, I'm not looking to topple anything, but I've joined up with a few dozen amazing bloggers to bring the ultimate Star Wars Giveaway your way!
