Star Wars Andor, Skeleton Crew, and Willow

Star Wars Celebration 2022 is going on now, and they just announced a number of great new things! Of course, the new Obi-Wan series is not a new announcement, as it’s coming out in just a day or so. But they also announce the release date for Star Wars: Andor,...

Sanderson’s Record Breaking Kickstarter

Brandon Sanderson’s Kickstarter is certainly one for the record books. Not only was it the biggest Kickstarter of all time, but it blew away the next highest one by light-years. Bringing in a whopping $41.7 million dollars, the numbers are absolutely shocking — especially since he expected a “mere” $1...

The Rings of Power Character Speculation

I’m getting pretty hyped about the new Lord of the Ring’s streaming series, The Rings of Power. The series is not due to start until September, but Amazon has already released 23 character posters for series. The posters do not show the full characters, only showing part of their outfits,...

James Webb Telescope

James Webb Telescope Launches This Month

The James Webb space telescope is launching this month–one week from now, as of this writing, on Dec 22nd. That’s assuming there is no delay in the launch. For those who do not know, the James Webb is a “game-changer” telescope. Like its predecessor, the famed Hubble Space Telescope, the...

Cowboy Bebop Opening Credits

Cowboy Bebop is one of my favorite anime series. I was worried about Netflix’s live-action adaptation (especially given what they did with Death Note), but they just released the open credits. Let me say this: it looks spot on. They used the same opening score music from the anime (called...

NASA’s Curiosity rover, which has been on Mars for nine years now, has just taken a great, full-color panorama of the Gale crater. You can see a the panorama video released by JPL below, and it is even narrated to explain everything you are seeing. The resolution is stunning, and...

Foundation Series

The latest trailer for the adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy has just come out. It looks pretty good, but I’m bummed that this series will be on Apple TV. I don’t have Apple TV and have no plan to get it. Even so, I’m sure it will be available...

Vader / Obi-Wan Battle Reimagined

Some very creative and talented people have recreated the lightsaber battle between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi, from A New Hope. Obviously, technical limitations in 1977 made an epic lightsaber duel impractical in the first Star Wars movie, but this scene brings the battle inline with what we saw of...

1 For All D&D Musical

The “1 For All” D&D gamers web series by Deerstalker Production is always great, but this time they have truly outdone themselves with this hilarious D&D musical adventure. It is absolutely fantastic. If you haven’t seen any of their episodes before, it’s fine to watch this. Most of the episodes...
