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 […]

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 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 #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 #226

Nope. I didn’t watch the Oscars again. Long time listeners know that I don’t consider the Academy Awards to be much more than a bunch of floofy schmaltz. That’s not to say that awards aren’t deserved, but it’s all about peers giving awards to peers for movies that are meant for the public to enjoy. […]

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 […]
