Well, apparently one does.
I don’t know if anyone else saw this coming, but I was completely blindsided.
Disney just bought Lucasfilm, including the rights to all their films – and most importantly, Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
Apparently, due to some rights issues with Paramount, Indy is just going to retire. That’s sad, but possibly for the best.
On the other hand, Disney has already announced that they are going to release Star . . . → Read More: Star Wars VII, VIII, IX… and beyond?!
This is one of a series of articles I wrote for The Coalition of Awesomeness blog some time ago. The blog has since gone to an unfortunate (but very awesome) grave so I thought I’d share it here. Those were the focal questions of Crusade, the Babylon 5 spin-off/sequel series that was cancelled before it even aired. I don’t know what the answers to those questions would have been, but I’m pretty confident that the show’s creator, J. . . . → Read More: Who do you serve, and who do you trust?
Maybe I should have called this series of posts “Force Fed”.
While that’s not exactly the truth about how it went down, that title does reflect a bit of how I feel now that we’ve completed watching Return of the Jedi, and thus the original trilogy.
I definitely didn’t force my kids to watch these movies. They’ve been asking (and at times whining) to see them. I do think that I didn’t hold out as . . . → Read More: Star Wars Conundrum: Original Trilogy Reflection
I’m going to revisit a couple of topics discussed here recently and then we’ll hit some new topics.
Well, after my last post I finished watching The Event. I stick with what I said about it, except for this: they did finally manage to make the title relevant, and they alluded to more about the “protectors” that showed they really did have some kind of plan. I like that they had been here before (guess . . . → Read More: Revisitation and new worlds
The full trailer for Doctor Who’s sixth season is out. Watch it:
This bit did it for me:
Off-screen, scary sounding alien: Fear me. I’ve killed hundreds of Time Lords.
The Doctor (not impressed): Fear me. I’ve killed them all.
Game; set; match. I’m in. Everything else is gravy. And there’s some marvelous gravy…

I just finished recording with my wife the inaugural edition of my completely new and wonderful conception: the “Things I didn’t blog about but should have” podcast.
That’s right, you can hear in live, monophonic sound, my own voice telling you about the things that I just didn’t bother writing about!
How much would you pay for that?! WAIT! Don’t answer… there’s more.
Each edition will have someone talking with me about the things I . . . → Read More: Coming soon…
New season, new Doctor, new show runner, new companions… lots of change this year. How’d it turn out? (as with the reviews of previous years, I’m going to try to keep this spoiler free)
First, a bit of history… 2009 saw the end of David Tennant’s incredibly popular run as the Doctor with a series of specials rather than a true season. Russell T Davies, the man who brought the show back in 2005, left . . . → Read More: Review: Doctor Who 2010
NO! I am not talking about the insipid, rodent-filled name-stealer.
Why?! Why did they do it?!
Similar to Lee’s story in the blog entry that I’m blatantly ripping off, even to the point of taking his graphics, when I heard about a live action G-Force movie I could feel the 10-year old geek in me pushing and punching the 38-year old (at the time) actual geek that is me to race to . . . → Read More: G-Force ROCKS!
Well, this week was the one to launch three shows I’ll be following this year (Heroes, FlashForward, and Smallville) and close out the opening season for a summer series I watched (Warehouse 13). How’d they do? Read on.
Let’s start with the end. The finale to Warehouse 13 on Tuesday was really good. [SKIP TO THE NEXT PARAGRAPH TO AVOID SPOILERS.] They still managed to keep the light tone of the show intact while also . . . → Read More: Premieres/Finales Fall 2009
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
I haven’t read the books. In general I’ve tried to avoid reviews and other spoilers for the film (though I did get spoiled for the ultra-major event, annoyingly). I’ve heard a lot of people say this was the best Potter film yet. They lauded the admirable job condensing the plot from the book into a 2.5 hour film. They loved the more mature (but not too mature) dealing . . . → Read More: Review: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
