Widescreen Podcast #271 – A Reminder

Let’s just put this out there. Black Lives Matter. This does not mean that no other lives matter. At no point was that a statement of exclusivity. But right now there are certain segments of the population that unfortunately need to be reminded that the lives of those with dark skin matter just as much as […]

The Widescreen Podcast #262 – The Rise of the Unoriginal Cliché

It’s been a while since I posted here, which is really stupid of me, but I’m going to try to change that in the new year by adding content other than widescreen.org podcasts. I’ve been getting more into 3D CAD and such, so this would be a good outlet for that. I’ve seen The Rise […]

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 #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. […]
