When I was in college I had a ritual every Tuesday. After classes were done for the day I drove to Best Buy. Tuesday’s is when new releases hit the store shelves and they were always on sale the week their first week. Lately I’ve noticed a terrible trend. A dwindling supply of physical movies in stores. I’ve noticed it at Best Buy, Meijer and Target. The movie section used to span several rows of motion picture delectation. I’ve also noticed a dwindling presence of Blu-ray players available for purchase. This is all very disconcerting! I don’t always feel like streaming a movie. In fact, [… Click to Continue …]
On December 10th Disney held their investor day which is when the Disney Corporation announces it’s major plans and projects. Obviously Disney+ is about to increase its library, dramatically. In case you missed it, TEN Star Wars projects were announced!! I was inundated and overwhelmed with so much exciting information I could barely contain myself. There are literally hundreds of posts and articles out there discussing these projects. I’m sure you can go read some of the other official posts but I’m writing my bit about it anyway because it’s my blog. I am using the official announcement as my source for these projects. I [… Click to Continue …]
Saving Mr. Banks Directed By: John Lee Hancock Starring: Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson Release Year: 2013 My Rating: I realize this movie is 7 years old but nobody is really going to the theater right now so I might as well review something new I’ve watched.

Onward Directed By: Dan Scanlon Starring: Tom Holland, Chris Pratt My Rating: A side effect of these extraordinary times is the early digital release of new movies. The latest Disney film became available on Disney+ after only a month in theaters. While nothing will compare to the theater experience, it’s nice to be able to see new movies during quarantine. Keep in mind, not all movies will be free with a subscription to a streaming service. Another obvious perk to Disney+. Here is my movie review of Onward. Brief Synopsis Spiderman (Tom Holland) and Starlord (Chris Pratt) team up for this typical Disney “feel good” [… Click to Continue …]
We were expecting announcements at Disney’s D23 expo this past weekend. Disney delivered as promised. I think a lot of people were expecting more about The Rise of Skywalker. Disney did not disappoint there either, with the release of the “Special Look“. However, this post is about the official trailer for The Mandalorian series. Check it out! I think this is going to be an amazing debut of the first Star Wars live action series and I cannot wait. The Mandalorian comes to the Disney+ streaming service November 12th. Let another countdown begin! The Force. It calls to you. Just let it in.
We have been waiting for months. Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels have been teasing us. They teased us at the Super Bowl. They teased us all through March. We were even teased for the first day of the Celebration. We had to wait until the second day of the Star Wars Celebration, during the Episode IX panel for J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy finally gave us what we all wanted!! Episode IX Title and Trailer! The Title: The Rise of Skywalker The Trailer: Just as the previous two movies, I instantly got chills! I will share my analysis of the Episode IX title and trailer [… Click to Continue …]
