I wasn’t going to do this…
Who the fuck am I kidding? Of course I was going to do this.

Jazz Fingers: The Series

The finale of WandaVision, the newest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 on Disney+, released today and will most likely dominate discourse for the weekend. If you have not watched the show at all you shouldn’t be here, I don’t know what else to tell you. There will be finale spoilers as well as predictions for the coming MCU phase 4, so stop reading now and come back to this once you’ve seen all nine episodes.

Should be…

I have a bad feeling about this

It has been a long time since the last book in this series was released. A Dance With Dragons hit shelves in 2011, which is a decade ago, wtf, and since then we’ve gotten nearly 80 TV episodes, a couple vanity projects and history books, but not much else. Fans of the novels still wonder when, if ever, we’ll get the final installments of this series.


I didn’t want to do this…

half an A-Train and Deep make a whole story line

*** Spoiler Alert for everything in The Boys***

The second season of this show, especially the ending, has ruined it for me entirely.

A lot of you want to stop reading now. I get it. Virtually every other review of The Boys streaming on Amazon Prime — especially Season Two — is giving it a glowing review. This means that my opinion is wrong, but I cannot help how I feel. I need to make sense of it all and the only way I know how is sharing.

So, if you’re interested in a…


We all know it…

But no one will talk about it. Seriously, google “death of Iron Man” and it’s all rave reviews and some salty morons complaining that RDJr. deserves an Oscar (lol No he doesn’t).

Generally it’s tough to find a good critique on Endgame because it checks a lot of boxes for fans. It finishes out a huge continuity and tries to wrap up about a thousand loose ends from the past two decades of storytelling. Being overly critical would be easy because, essentially, the MCU attempted the impossible. It is simply not possible to make two dozen…


A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

prologue

Count Dooku leads a pair of assassin droids down an sparsely lit hallway. A great stone door at the end of the passage turns aside to reveal a man cloaked in black. Dooku kneels before his master and waits till he’s commanded to rise.

The Force grows exponentially between the two lords, whipping up wild and devastating like a tornado. His master tells Dooku to focus. The droids crumple into a pile of parts. The walls and floor quake until an altar rises up from the center of the…


A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

prologue

With the sounds of celebration fading in the distance, we watch as a newly knighted Obi-Wan Kenobi hops into a Jedi Starfighter and flies away from Naboo to land on Dantooine. He’s greeted by a warm and inviting Yoda, who sets aside his work for the reunion. Obi-Wan holds back tears as he explains the circumstances of Qui-Gon’s passing, and the feeling of serenity that encased him as he defeated Maul. Yoda listens to everything patiently, then offers to meditate with him.

As they commune, Yoda tells Obi-Wan that…


A short film that needs to be feature length, like, right now…

“Behind the acclaimed work of a renowned tattoo studio lurks an unimaginable evil.”

The slasher genre has its new champion, finally. Critically acclaimed writer and director Michael Wong offers a gripping, chilling glimpse at the deranged world of THE TATTOOIST in his short film. Take a look at the film here. It’s short, and NSFW, but really, really good.


A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

prologue

The first thing we see is the Slave One drop into realspace. Jango Fett is piloting and pulls up to dock with a dreadnought. He disembarks to enter the Silver Sailor, an extravagant capital cruiser owned by the mysterious Lord Tyranus. It’s decked out in luxurious rugs, chandeliers and rare artifacts and technologies from all over the galaxy and beyond.

Then Tyranus appears, dressed like a royal, with a clean shaved face and bright yellow eyes. He shares a drink with Jango, who removes his helmet to join in…


I wasn’t going to do this…

But BoJack Horseman was finally put to rest this past weekend with the release of the final eight episodes of the 6th and final season.

Okay. This is not going to be like any of my other reviews in that, usually, I at least attempt to moderate my editorializing. I will not maintain much objectivity in this review. If that’s distasteful to you, please click away now.

*** MAJOR SPOILERS FOR THE LAST SEASON OF BOJACK HORSEMAN***

BoJack at his BoJackie-est

BoJack has been like a partner to me since I discovered him about three years ago. Someone…


Season 1 is over: This is the way.

As with all my writing there will be SPOILERS, obscure references to lore no one cares about, and wildly outlandish predictions (as well as some unearned back-patting) so consider yourself warned.

If you haven’t read it yet, I went ham on the first 5 eps of this season: Here.

So The Mandalorian’s first season is over, everything is wrapped up in a nice package with a bow on it and there’s nothing to talk about except how much we all liked it, right?
