The Holy Trilogies: The Porkins Connection

Jek Porkins

I’ll start this on sort of a random note. I’ve always been a fan of Jek Porkins. Who doesn’t love a chubby star pilot? Anyhow, from the ‘I can’t believe I didn’t know this’ file comes today’s entry. If you know me even a little but you know that I’m a HUGE Star Wars fan. You probably also know that, like most guys my age, I’m also a huge fan of the Indiana Jones films. While … Continue reading

Star Wars Prequels – Should You Watch Them?

Star Wars Prequels

I’m a Star Wars nerd. Anyone who knows me knows that. I’m of that perfect age where marketing, toys and movies came together with an impressionable brain. George Lucas got his hooks into me early and has never let go. I’ve had a love / hate relationship with the prequel trilogy and George Lucas over the years here on the blog. I had Star Wars love when I wrote Thank You SPIKE – You Brought … Continue reading

The Force Awakens And My Anticipation Grows

The Force Awakens

It’s San Diego Comic Con season. Geeks have flocked from around the world to dress up, get exclusive toys and be the first to see new footage and new projects announced. Both The Walking Dead and Ash Vs. Evil Dead dropped new trailers and while Star Wars didn’t release a new trailer, they released this video which has me drooling: And as an aside… I love the fact that they’re basically taking jabs at Lucas and … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1980

Flash Gordon

I’m a big list guy. If you’ve read my stuff here you know I love putting them together and debating them. I’m starting a new, hopefully regular, series here on the site where I’ll be looking at my favorite films through the years. I got the idea for this when one of my favorite podcasts StarJoes did the same thing. I’m what they call a “child of the 80’s” as I was born in 1976 so … Continue reading

Harry Potter, The Empire And… Corn?

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (2011)

It’s been some time since I’ve done a movie review so rather than create a post for each of the movies I’ve seen recently I figured I’d put one of these compilation posts together.  I don’t go to the movies all that often, but after I’d seen Dark Of The Moon not once, but TWICE it was rather strange for me to be back in the theater.  That said, when Harry Potter comes calling I … Continue reading

Thank You SPIKE – You Brought Me Back

Thank You SPIKE

I’ve been a Star Wars fan for as long as I can remember.  I grew up with the original trilogy to this day those movies have shaped my geekdom in many ways.  The prequel movies came out and like just about every other Star Wars fan I was ecstatic to once again see this universe on the big screen. I’ve written in the past about how based on those prequel movies I’m done defending George … Continue reading

Top 80’s Action Movies

First Blood (1982)

It’s been quite some time since I came up with any kind of a Top 10 list.  I was flipping through the channels the other night in a hotel room and ran across First Blood on AMC.  Naturally, I sat there and watched it till the end and it got me to thinking what a great era the 80’s was for action flicks. HONORABLE MENTIONS Revenge Of The Ninja (1983) – When I think of … Continue reading

10 Years Later This Geek Is Done Defending Lucas

Star Wars 10 Years Later

Let me start off by saying I’m a HUGE Star Wars fan.  Always have been and I always will be.  Those movies and everything associated with them will always have a special place in my heart.  By association I’m a huge fan of George Lucas and the galaxy far far away that he created.  That said, on the 10 year anniversary of The Phantom Menace, this geek is done defending him. Ever since the final … Continue reading
