I checked out a Fast and the Furious film in the theater, for what might actually be the first time... I'm pretty sure I've either rented or streamed all the other ones(and haven't actually seen the third one). Oh well. I was pretty excited to check this one out, as Fast 7 was one hell … Continue reading Fun Fast and Furious, A look at Fate of the Furious
I bought this issue solely for the cover: It looks just like a vintage propaganda poster. The imagery of the Stormtroopers as strong defenders of the Empire, looking implacable is just breathtaking. This cover is just plain beautiful. There is also some really neat imagery: The story itself comes from the perspective of a Stormtrooper. … Continue reading Stormtroopers Looking Cool: Star Wars #21
I spent the last week in the beautiful country of Barbados. I had the opportunity to see new things, try new things, and eat new foods. Everything travel should be! So here goes on the recap: Day 1 We arrived on Saturday afternoon and were picked up at the airport by the owners of the … Continue reading Recapping Barados
This year I got to experience my birthday in a somewhat different way. Not just in another country, but 170 feet underground. On our second day in the country I grew a year older, and in deference to the epic sunburn I'd earned the day before, we decided that maybe the beach wasn't the best … Continue reading Underground Birthday
This one is going to be a bit of a departure from what I normally write about, so please, bear with me and enjoy! I am currently on holidays in Barbados, and having completed the 'in the pool' portion of my SCUBA certification, I needed to get into some open water and complete the rest. … Continue reading Under the Sea – It is better down where it’s wetter!
After managing to avoid spoilers since its release, I finally went and saw Logan. To be perfectly honest, this was nothing like what I'd grown to expect from a comic book movie, and definitely nothing like what I've come to expect from an X-Men movie. It was its own animal. It stood out and above … Continue reading I can’t believe that’s a comic book movie! A look at Logan.
I enjoyed this movie. I originally went back when it came out in December, but went again seeing as it recently hit the cheap theater. My hope was that I would enjoy it just as much as I did during my first theatrical viewing, and I was not disappointed, though I was assured by an … Continue reading Going Rogue: My second trip to see Rogue One
I'll start with a warning: There will be spoilers ahead, so if you haven't watched the episode, consider yourself warned. I've been looking forward to this episode since they released the mid-season trailer and we got that brief shot of Obi-Wan ready for a fight. He has been one of my favourite characters for years, … Continue reading The Return of my Favourite Jedi: my thoughts on Star Wars Rebels Twin Suns
I took my kids to their first movie in the theater this past weekend. We went and saw the latest Disney offering, Moana. I wasn't aware of much about this movie, aside from the fact that The Rock voiced one of the characters. I was also concerned about how my three-year old would behave. Luckily, … Continue reading My Kid’s First Cinema Experience: An afternoon with Moana
As far as comics go I've always sort of been more of a Marvel guy. Not that DC has never put out good stuff, but teenage me was always into the X-Men. That, and I've never been a huge Superman fan. Not sure why, but the character never really resonated with me or seemed interesting. … Continue reading A First Foray into Justice: My first ever Justice League comic, #14.
