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”

A Brief Recap of The Mandalorian – Episode 15

I was worried going into this episode that this was going to just be another filler episode. After last week’s episode set the stage for the finale, I didn’t just want an episode about Mando breaking Bill Bur’s character out of jail. Thankfully that wasn’t exactly what we got. Bill Bur gets excused from hisContinue reading “A Brief Recap of The Mandalorian – Episode 15”

A Brief Recap of The Mandalorian – Episode 14

When the title drop of “the tragedy” appeared in the opening credits for this week episode, my heart honestly sank. I shouldn’t have been surprised. We’ve reached the point of this season where the story needs to start building up to a decisive conclusion and ramping up the stakes. Nothing that happens is shocking. ThatContinue reading “A Brief Recap of The Mandalorian – Episode 14”

A Brief Mandalorian – Episode 11 Recap

The writers of The Mandalorian are really starting to fall back on Deus Ex Machinas in a pinch too frequently. Last episode was resolved by the X-Wing pilots swooping in to save the day at the last minute and this episode starts with Mando needing to be saved again after being captured by pirates. ConvenienceContinue reading “A Brief Mandalorian – Episode 11 Recap”

A Brief Mandalorian – Episode 10 Recap

I’m getting really invested into The Mandalorian once again! I couldn’t actually tell you why. For the most part, I’ve grown weary of spectacle blockbusters of late. For whatever reason though this show seeps right through my logical analysis into my lizard brain and makes me really REALLY happy! I already reviewed the season premiereContinue reading “A Brief Mandalorian – Episode 10 Recap”
