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 #234

Okay, I get a bit ranty in this over something that probably doesn’t deserve it, but it’s the principle of the matter here! Sadly, a TV series that was shot on 35mm film is getting the 16:9 pan-and-scan treatment. It really doesn’t deserve the attention that I gave it, but pan-and-scan is totally not necessary. […]

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. […]

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 […]

The Widescreen Podcast #220

Reminder: widescreen.org is the main site for my podcasts, not here, but I understand if Google leads you here instead.  (Hey, they’re both my web sites, so what do I really care?) Well, I get to wipe off some egg off my face. A few quite infuriating things happened close together, so I was a […]

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 […]
