Disney+ Adds Trigger Warnings to The Muppet Show for “Negative Depictions of Cultures”

In yet another act of embarrassment for the House of the Mouse, Disney+ has seen fit to add content advisories to eighteen episodes of the classic kid’s show The Muppet Show. “This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the advisory reads. “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. RatherContinue reading “Disney+ Adds Trigger Warnings to The Muppet Show for “Negative Depictions of Cultures””

Gina Carano, Star of Disney+’s The Mandalorian, has been fired from Lucasfilm, future Star Wars projects and her talent agency.

A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episode 5

I’m starting to run out of ways to come up with crackpot theories about where WandaVision is going. If nothing else, it feels like the series is starting to settle into its final stretch. Wanda is clearly (Mostly) the instigator of what is happening and she is a great deal more hostile that I initiallyContinue reading “A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episode 5”

A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episode 4

It took me a solid minute to catch onto what was happening in the prologue to this week’s episode. Once it clicked, I was actually pleasantly surprised. This introduction shows us the moments after Bruce Banner snapped half of life back into existence. It’s actually mildly grotesque and unsettling… Unlike in Spiderman Far From Home,Continue reading “A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episode 4”

A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episode 3

I get the feeling that WandaVision is going to run out of gas long before it hits episode 9. Call it a hunch but the clues and gimmicks are starting to point to their eventual grand reveal and I can’t help but wonder if three hours of classic sitcom homage is going to work atContinue reading “A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episode 3”

A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episodes 1 and 2

I’ve been super interested in Disney+‘s first planned Marvel series. 2020 was primarily focused on Star Wars and Hamilton content that earned the fledgling streaming service it’s early reputation. This year, Disney+ will be focusing more on Marvel Studios content with its upcoming projects like WandaVision, Falcon and Winter Soldier, Loki and Ms. Marvel. TheContinue reading “A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episodes 1 and 2”

HUMMEL Review: Soul (2020)

I’ve talked numerous times over the years about just how disappointed I’ve been with the last decade of Pixar’s output. The studio that once put out highly original films went through a terrible patch of bad sequels and prequels that I never enjoyed. They’ve slowly started crawling out of the pit with original movies againContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: Soul (2020)”

The Tragedy of Anakin Skywalker: The Star Wars Prequels as Classical Tragedy

Deconstructing the multitudinous problems in the Star Wars Prequels became a cottage industry online for much of the late 2000s. 21 years later, I still hear grown men whining about how Jar Jar Binks ruined The Phantom Menace. In truth, I’ve mostly gotten bored with this dialog. Maybe it’s a symptom of the fact thatContinue reading “The Tragedy of Anakin Skywalker: The Star Wars Prequels as Classical Tragedy”
