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. […]

The Widescreen Podcast #229

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 #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 […]

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 […]

Watch DVD/BD ISOs Without A Writer

I’m not one for fan films. I’ve been on the Internet in one form or another since 300 baud modems were a thing. (Remember when the BBS and Quantum Link were a thing? My geek credentials are solid.) I’ve seen a lot of truly horrible fan films. I’ve also been a Star Trek fan since […]

The Widescreen Podcast #219 – The Hero for December

Many weird things happened between this episode and the last: I became a hero for December for someone I respect, Disney takes another step closer to becoming a monopoly, and those who are supposed to represent the people proved once again that they don’t care about anything but their corporate masters. The result is that […]

The Widescreen Podcast #218

Yes, it’s been a while, but it’s possible (and I do stress possible) that things will be looking up for the podcast shortly, the reason for which I explain in the show. And as much as I hate Black Friday (and I do apologize to the world for that horrible export), I actually was able to get […]
