My Verdict: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I really had to sit on this for a while, because SW TLJ is a very bold movie.  It apparently has divided Star Wars fandom considerably, from the Dragon*Con fanboys down to the casual fans.  I have to respect Rian

Star Trek: The Motion Picture

I watched The Motion Picture again yesterday. It was the first time in a very long time. I was trying to get a better understanding of the disappointment in that movie. I was disappointed but not as viscerally as some

I am not the only one!

2017 Spring Season TV Watching

In this modern age, it is harder and harder to get into shows especially if you cut the cord like we did.  Now we rely on streaming and HD airwaves for our entertainment.  Hulu, Netflix, Sling.TV and Kodi/XBMC are the
