[review] X-wing: Wraith Squadron (Aaron Allston)

As a fair, broad-minded officer, I should ignore that. But as a Corellian, of course, I'll manage some sort of revenge. -Wedge Antilles, p. 6 Lots of people talk about Zahn's Thrawn trilogy endlessly, but in my opinion, it does other fantastic Star Wars books and novelists a disservice. Out of the X-Wing Series written… Continue reading [review] X-wing: Wraith Squadron (Aaron Allston)

[opinion] What Star Wars Disney Can Learn From TV Tokyo’s Boruto

[Warning: Will Contain Spoilers!] Something that is hard for us to recognize nowadays is that the literature we call "classic", such as Chaucer's Canterbury Tales or Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, were, during their times, popular forms of culture. With that perspective in mind, when we look at current stories, myths, and cultural products, we have to… Continue reading [opinion] What Star Wars Disney Can Learn From TV Tokyo’s Boruto

[conversation] Solo: A Star Wars Story – and the Kessel Run Conundrum

I initially enjoyed Solo: A Star Wars story, and agree (along with Ben Shapiro and Redlettermedia) that Solo is by no means the worst Star Wars film out there. However, there were a few issues with it - and oddly enough, after a lot of thought, I came to the decision that I didn't like… Continue reading [conversation] Solo: A Star Wars Story – and the Kessel Run Conundrum

[posting][review] Top Five Intellectual Anime Shows

One of the common misconceptions about anime is that it is a strange and goofy genre designed for middle school students, but while that is true about quite a few that have had massive impact in Western culture (I'm looking at you, One Piece and Naruto), quite a few anime have been created specifically for… Continue reading [posting][review] Top Five Intellectual Anime Shows

[review] Ghost in the Shell (2017)

Ghost in the Shell (2017) surprised me. It isn't perfect, but it ended up being way better than I thought it would be. A lot of "hard-core" GitS fans were disappointed apparently, but, considering the quality of other film adaptations of anime, they were being unduly harsh. The Plot One of the major complaints about… Continue reading [review] Ghost in the Shell (2017)

[review] A Billion Wicked Thoughts

WARNING: Adult material ahead! "The sexual brain is guaranteed to upset the politically correct, the socially conservative, and just about everybody in between." I chuckled over Ogas and Gaddam's warning in their preface to A Billion Wicked Thoughts: What the Internet Tells Us About Sexual Relationships. It was an amused chuckle because I was excited… Continue reading [review] A Billion Wicked Thoughts

[movie review] Thor: The Dark World

Thor: Ragnarok is one of the few movies I am looking forward to seeing next year. I say "looking forward to", but I would be lying if I didn't admit to some concerns. This is mostly in part due to what I consider to be the travesty of Thor: The Dark World. As I was going… Continue reading [movie review] Thor: The Dark World
