The Movie and Media Podcast #199

Well, folks, that’s it. As far as the TV manufacturers are concerned, 3D TV is dead. Frankly, I’m not surprised. I’ve been calling people out for a few years now for what I knew would be the death knell for 3D TV. It turns out that I was right on almost every count. Everything that […]

I’m nowhere near as rant-y as I was in the last podcast. I’m finally finishing my 10+ year project to convert my original Star Wars laserdiscs to DVD — you know, the originals where Han shoots first, Jabba isn’t seen until Jedi, and Hayden Christensen is not the ghost of Anakin Skywalker? Yeah, those. And considering that the […]

I will admit that I’m a bit more rant-y in this podcast than others, but between the election, the reactions from idiots on both sides, and other things, I guess I needed to vent via my own impeccable logic and common sense.

The previous weekend certainly was interesting. I did see Batman v Superman and frankly – I liked it! No, it wasn’t a fantastic movie, but it wasn’t awful either. What I do find more intriguing is the fact that the critics hated the movie, and I’m convinced that they hate the public for liking the movie. […]

He’s one of the more important characters in the original Star Wars. Although his presence on-screen only lasted a few seconds, he role was arguably critical. He’s the pilot who initially refused to take Luke and Obi-wan to Alderaan but seemed to suggest the big, furry guy behind him – a fateful decision that forever altered […]

To hell with that idiotic football game or the inconsiderate followers of said football game who can’t resist flooding everyone’s Facebook and Twitter feeds when they should be watching the f**king game instead; and to hell with The Walking Dead, too. (Yes, I went there.) It’s DEADPOOL MONTH! Oh, right, there’s a romance-related thing this month, too. […]
