    Star Wars: Ahsoka Slowly Gears Towards Excitement

    Editor’s Note: This review of Star Wars: Ahsoka was written during the 2023 WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Without the labor of the writers and actors currently on strike, the series being covered here wouldn’t exist. If you’re a fan of Star Wars Rebels, you’ll likely be entertained by Ahsoka. If you’re unfamiliar with Rebels, you may be bored with […] More

    The Bad Batch Season 2 Ignites a Spark of Hope

    It might be a fool’s hope, but The Bad Batch Season 2 potentializes a grand payoff in an otherwise dull show. Echo, Wrecker, Tech, Hunter (all voiced masterfully by Dee Bradley Baker), and Omega (Michelle Ang) are off on episodic adventures once more. Our heroes take on mercenary work to make due in the galaxy. The […] More

    Andor: Star Wars Grows Up

    Now until the end of day, the sentiment remains from George Lucas that Star Wars is made for twelve-year-olds. As time moves forward, however, those twelve-year-olds become adults. As adults, many of us can cling to childish things without the ability to move on to more mature material. But I question if Star Wars has to be marketed […] More

    Obi-Wan Kenobi Restores Star Wars’ Strength but Its Weakness Still Remains

    In 2017 George Lucas told a building packed full of adults that Star Wars is made for 12-year-olds. Despite Lucas’ subtle condescending distinction that he’s telling the crowd they’re infantile, the room cluelessly cheered George on. My affinity for Star Wars is unhealthy. A grown man spending most of the quarantine watching two children’s cartoon shows […] More

    Ms. Marvel Rekindles Some Much Needed Magic in the MCU

    If I can explain Ms. Marvel in one word, it would be adorable. Disney’s secret recipe for appealing to children continues to improve upon its ingredients. At one time, Disney only produced stories set in the past. The tales of Snow White, Cinderella, and Aladdin were far from contemporary settings. That is until Pixar came along with Toy Story. However, […] More

    How The Bad Batch Illustrates Disney’s Mishandling of Star Wars

    After countless rescue missions, The Bad Batch can’t save Disney from their redundant writing. Adding another mantlepiece to Star Wars’ wall of disappointment, The Bad Batch is precisely why causal fans can’t get into the cartoon shows. The similarities in The Bad Batch’s writing to Rebels, The Mandalorian, and the sequel trilogy are even worse than the bulk of […] More

    In Treatment Season 4 Fails to Analyze Its Therapist

    This article is intended for fans or anyone who at least finished In Treatment Season 4. If you know nothing about the show, feel free to watch it and come back here later. Otherwise, you’ll have no idea what I’m referencing.  SPOILERS AHEAD  I didn’t know In Treatment had a fan base. Hearing the series […] More

    Remembering the Dreamcast

    About two years ago, I worked tech on a video game podcast where none of the hosts knew when the Dreamcast was released. Without having even to flinch, I blurted out, “September 9, 1999.” Dumbfounded, the co-host leaned toward me, “how did you know that?” he said. 12 year old me ate up Sega’s bizarre […] More

  • Behold the Nintendo Playstation!

    Nintendo’s Greatest Mistake

    How times have changed. Where games are available at any given time to download today, no such quality existed in the mid 90s. 12-13 year old me hung around an abandoned firehouse turned community center for children. We played game consoles on the first floor. Sitting at each corner was a different console from NES-N64. […] More

    Sony Is Shaking Its Identity With Remakes

    Why would Sony remake The Last of Us? Not another remaster, a remake. Sony always aimed for big-budget-name blockbusters that weren’t just Xbox first-person shooters or Nintendo platformers; their games were works of art. What differentiated Sony from Nintendo in the 90s was Sony’s dare to play big risk games. Metal Gear Solid was an 8-hour movie […] More

    Five Star Wars Games That Need to Come Out
