I skipped another one. You can always get the show notes on widescreen.org anyway. As much as I would love to go over how stupid America has become with political correctness, I try not to get political in this podcast unless it involves politics as it affects us as consumers; so I will only say that […]

As much as I love film for its ubiquity, permanence (when stored properly), and overall quality, it’s not a miracle drug. One cinematographer acts like it is and then has the misfortune of bringing video games into the argument. Oh, dear. That’s a bad idea when I’m around. Now you know my rant for this […]

Yep. I skipped another one. I’m kind of stupid that way. Those of you who consider every, little thing about a movie you haven’t seen yet to be a “spoiler” probably won’t like this episode because I rail into that attitude pretty hard — and, yes, I talk about a scene in an unreleased movie. […]

Terminator Genisys has jumped the shark and the movie isn’t even out yet. I explain why in the show, but I just can’t imagine how anyone thought this new plot line was a good thing. It’s really bizarre, and I fear that the reboot is doomed before it even starts. Show notes: – A new, […]

I did. I skipped another one. I’m kind of an idiot that way.

Yes, I skipped a few episodes here. Sorry about that; however, you should be checking out my official podcast site or subscribing through iTunes anyway. (I’m working on adding more streaming options for those who don’t like or can’t run iTunes.) Also, I’ve decided that I’m going to start posting show notes here as well as on widescreen.org […]

Leonard Nimoy (1931-2015)

A very special part of both my childhood and adult life is gone. This time, however, there is no Genesis planet to bring him back. Requiescat in pace, Mister Nimoy. You will be sorely missed.

If Video Game Fans Were Like Sports Fans

I want to start off by saying emphatically that I don’t hate sports. I’ll go golfing, or play football or baseball with friends. But sitting in front of a TV and watching others play is something that I do not find exciting or interesting at all. Other people do, as evidenced by the immense global […]

Lots of new products were announced at CES 2015, but one of the most exciting for me is that ultra-HD content will soon be available on Blu-ray! Yes, you’ll need a new player to read the 100 GB discs, but this is the big thing that most US households (86% according to Akamai) need to […]
