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

Facebook Pet Peeves

Facebook Like Button

Facebook.  It’s a social networking site.  I’m not going to bother explaining it any further than that cause if you don’t know what it is, you probably won’t be able to understand the explanation.  I’ve talked many times about Facebook.  I’ve said some good things.  I’ve said some bad things.  I’ve wondered how they do some of the things that they do.  Today I’m back with a couple of Facebook pet peeves.  If you’re a … Continue reading

The Phantom Menace In 3D – I Hope It Fails Miserably

My respect for George Lucas is officially gone.  The man that created what I consider to be the greatest series … Continue reading

A Trip Of Flicks

G.I. Joe The Movie (1987)

I recently went on a quick trip to Vegas for work – in on Wednesday out on the “red-eye” on Friday evening.  The show was great and I managed to get in a little bit of time at the tables which was nice as well.  In preparation for my trip, I loaded up the iPod with quite a few flicks to make sure that I’d have plenty to keep me busy on the trip and … 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

‘Best Pictures’ That Just Aren’t – The 1990’s

The Oscar Statue

The most prestigious award that any movie can receive is the “Academy Award For Best Motion Picture” — The Oscar.  Once a movie has this distinction it goes down in history as the “best” movie of that year.  The red carpet at the Oscars is a huge event every year where all the stars turn out.  The Academy goes through some sort of review process and determines which picture is truly “the best”.  Ol Chewie’s … Continue reading
