“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” Final Trailer

The final trailer for “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” has just been released. And it’s a doozy! You should keep a close eye out for cool “call-backs” to locations from Return of the Jedi, and I’m pretty sure this also confirms the return of one very evil emperor…

16-Bit Avengers Endgame Finale

The 16-bit version of Avengers: Endgame final battle is awesome! Note: do not watch if you haven’t seen Endgame. It is spoilery. The last half of the video shows a “making-of” where the creator of the video, John Stratman, explains how he did it. Pretty cool!

Teaser Trailer for Star Wars IX: Rise of Skywalker

The first teaser trailer for “Star Wars IX: Rise of Skywalker” has been released! We can’t really glean too much from the trailer, but we do see Leia, confirming that she is in the film, and see that Lando is in the film as well. The very end, though, has...

A Fan’s Review of Alita: Battle Angel

I am a long-time fan of “Battle Angel Alita,” going back all the way to when Viz released the translation of the Gunnm graphic novels, written by Japanese manga-master Yukito Kishiro, back in the 1990s.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and produced by┬áJames Cameron and Jon Landau, this movie has all the making’s a major blockbuster. However, the source material is pretty obscure. Back...

Space Fever

I must go back to the stars again, to the lonely sea in the sky, And all I ask is a starship and a helm to steer her by; And the coils kick and the star’s song and the solar sail’s shaking, And a gray mist on the planet’s face and a bright...

Transformers Bumblebee Trailer

The new trailer for the upcoming Transformers movie “Bumblebee” is out, and I’m stoked! This is a big departure from the Michael Bay’s movies, where he completely re-designed the Autobots and Decepticons to be “more modern”. I’m a Transformers classicist, meaning I’m a huge fan of G1 transformers from the...
