Infinity War was amazing … absolutely amazing! Thanos is without a doubt the best MCE villain. He isn’t simply a bad guy. He’s a bad guy with good intentions and a moral compass. I can’t remember the last time I watched a movie where I actually understood and sympathized with why the bad guy was […]

The Widescreen Podcast #228

The times when I believe that the government is truly looking out for the people are few and far between, particularly with the current “all about me” administration; however, as someone who loves to tinker and repair his own gadgets when feasible, it’s nice that the FTC has shown that they’re actually on our side. […]

The Widescreen Podcast #227

It’s that time again! Boston beckons and the lifelong gamer in me is drawn to PAX East like Odo was drawn back to the Founders’ homeworld. (Kudos to those who catch the reference.) But before I depart, one last podcast must be done … and here it is. For whatever weird reason, you’re here to […]

The Widescreen Podcast #226

Nope. I didn’t watch the Oscars again. Long time listeners know that I don’t consider the Academy Awards to be much more than a bunch of floofy schmaltz. That’s not to say that awards aren’t deserved, but it’s all about peers giving awards to peers for movies that are meant for the public to enjoy. […]

The Widescreen Podcast #225

You can never get enough Monty Python. Really. Although, let’s face it… The Meaning of Life was by no means the best movie from the troupe. It was okay and had a few funny bits but otherwise it can’t really hold a candle to Life of Brian or Holy Grail.  In fact, I’d rather watch And Now For Something […]

The Widescreen Podcast #224

What in blazes in a Wimbley Woo and how does that relate to a Dingly Dell? No, this isn’t some kind of … er … adult discussion. (My Dingly Dell is just fine, thank you.) But it’s pretty sad when I was able to accurately determine where (geographically) Wimbley Woos are from. Otherwise, Redbox and […]

Review: Submerged (2016)

A lot of exploration games exist. Sadly most of them involve facets of gaming that can be a hindrance if not implemented well or play styles that not everyone enjoys. Survival tactics, psychological horror, or incoherent stories tend to be factors. Some exploration games turn out to be nothing more than linear “walking simulators”. That’s […]

The Widescreen Podcast #223

Sometimes I really hate the way that people pronounce things, particularly the way my fellow Americans pronounce “router”. There’s also a great deal of hypocrisy regarding a certain acronym that drives me up the wall when it’s mispronounced … and why.  On a separate note, there is still a sliver of hope for those of […]

The Widescreen Podcast #222

What are you doing here? You should be going to widescreen.org for this! Meh, what do I care. It’s like when kids mash things together at dinner that probably don’t belong together: it all goes to the same place anyway. CES has made it clear that TVs are pretty much at their peak. Sure, there […]

The Widescreen Podcast #221

Joyous new arbitrary orbital period around our nearest stellar body! And, hey, I actually did a podcast only a week after the previous one! Shocking, I know! I was not surprised at all to hear that ISP abuses of customers due to the revoking of Net Neutrality were happening. I was surprised to learn that Comcast […]
