Most Anticipated Games of 2019/20

We’re a little more than halfway through 2019 and I’m putting together a list of my most anticipated games 2019/20.  I may not game as aggressively as I used to, and it takes me a bit longer to jump on the new game list, but I’m still taking a look at the rest of 2019 and 2020 game releases and they are pretty good.  Here are my most anticipated games of the year, along with a few notes from my…

Review – Alita: Battle Angel

Alita Battle Angel

Alita: Battle Angel is something I’ve heard whispers about for nearly a decade.  It was on James Cameron’s “I’m making this movie when I make it” list with Avatar and whatever else he’s immersed himself in.  Thankfully he took a back seat and co-wrote the screenplay and produced it. (Something he really needs to do more often) Director Robert Rodriguez took the helm and directed it. He’s no stranger to action or special effects, but this was a pretty enormous…

My Favorite Directors

When I was younger I didn’t even realize I was developing a bias for certain movie directors.  I think when it became obvious to me was the summer of Terminator 2’s release when I found out the guy who made Aliens, Terminator and The Abyss (I loved this A LOT as a kid) was the same guy.  James Cameron was the director who ignited my interest in a deeper understanding of the movie making process.  At that tender age of…

The Orville (Season’s 1 & 2)

the orville

I’ve had “The Orville” recommended to me time and time again, but have been apathetic to give it a go.  Seth MacFarlane is at the helm and while I don’t hate him, I’m not a huge fan either.  To describe “The Orville” is relatively difficult, because it switches gears.  Often.  Season 1 is a very different show than season 2.  I’m not convinced that’s bad or good, but it does consider some reflection.…

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

“Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” was my most anticipated (perhaps tied with John Wick 3) movie of the year.  When Quentin Tarantino makes a movie, it’s not just a movie, it’s an event.  Having to wait a week before I was able to make it to the theatre it was hard not to eavesdrop on some of the feedback. QT movies tend to polarize opinions, even among his own diehard fans.  I’ve heard some people say this was his…

Epic Tales From Film to TV

film to tv

From film to TV we have seen a drastic change in the telling of epic tales over the last decade thanks to“Game of Thrones”.  TV is no longer considered a second tier medium for actors and time, money, and more investment.  What we have coming in the future looks to be a place to explore epic tales in the TV medium and I am excited about the possibilities.…

One Punch Man: Season 2

One Punch Man

Finally got some access to Hulu and the first thing I watched was “One Punch Man” season 2.  My dragons introduced me to it sometime last year (when it was still on Netflix) and it’s fantastic.  My interest in anime and Asian influenced film is all over the place, which also gives me a unique perspective when it comes to anime and Asian cinema.…
