The Widescreen Podcast #256

I’ll be blunt: knock it off with the Sony bashing. Disney made a totally unacceptable offer to keep the Sony-Marvel cooperation going on Spider-Man. To make it worse, supposedly this was their second offer which was less agreeable than the first! I explain why Sony did the right thing by not renewing the agreement between them and […]

The Widescreen Podcast #250

I got to see Detective Pikachu with my family, and damn if it isn’t an adorable movie.  It has it moments of inconsistency and mood swings, but it was still worth the price of admission to me. Long-time listeners know that I’m a big fan of the Eurovision Song Contest despite being a Yankee. Unfortunately, the […]

The Widescreen Podcast #249

I ended up being a little bit rant-y on this episode.  I have my moments when I need to vent, I suppose, except that I vented a few times. Don’t buy those cheap streaming devices because …. well, really you should know better and you get what you pay for. Avengers: Endgame continues to break […]

The Widescreen Podcast #248

Endgame is here, it’s already breaking box office records all over the place, and it’s expected to make upwards of $900M globally on its opening weekend. No, I haven’t seen it yet, but my ticket has been purchased.  I’ll talk about it on the next show. It looks like Hulu will soon be owned entirely […]

Widescreen.org Podcast #241

Well, this is it. The last Widescreen.org podcast for 2018, and what a crazy decade this year has been. Does anyone remember that there were Olympic games earlier this year? Me neither. I can very much say that I love my country and my fellow citizens (of all skin colors), with extra love and respect […]

The Widescreen Podcast #236

Remember to go to widescreen.org for the real deal! I really can’t cover a lot of CEDIA content because it’s geared toward businesses and those with (as I unashamedly refer to it) more money than sense. But if anything it gives an indication of where the market might be heading because a lot of the now-expensive technology […]

The Widescreen Podcast #235

Remember to go to widescreen.org for the real deal! The fallout from James Gunn’s firing continue. The rumor mill has it that several Disney execs are not regretting their shoot-from-the-hip reaction, but they’re too proud (or embarrassed) to say anything. But on the plus side, Crazy Rich Asians has not only proven that the rom-com is […]

The Widescreen Podcast #233

This July certain did not pan out as intended. Although I had a great time at TennoCon (Warframe) and was fully vindicated in getting my 3D printer, so far this month someone is my house was sick every. single. day. And I’m not immune from the effects either. So not only is this podcast much later than […]

The Widescreen Podcast #232

For all of the good things on the Internet, one of the bad things is that it gives even the most idiotic people a voice. This time the idiots have demanded that because they are so-called “true fans” they have a right to dictate to Lucasfilm how the Star Wars franchise should be handled. In something […]

The Widescreen Podcast #231

I went into Solo pretty sure that I wasn’t going to enjoy it, but I had that need to see it partially out of curiosity and partially so I don’t break my streak of seeing every Star Wars movie theatrically. (Yes, that includes the original. Shut up. I’m old.) My thoughts on it might actually surprise you. […]
