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 […]

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 #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 #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 #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 […]

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 […]
