Eric’s Guide Through the ‘X-Men’ Series

Isn’t it weird that so much has changed in the world and film business and yet FOX’s ‘X-Men’ is still going strong. Almost 10 years ago the MCU started. At that point this wave of superhero movies had been going on for about 8 years and many were claiming it was getting ready to end. “Blade” proved that a Marvel based superhero film could work. Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” was where the genre kicked into high-gear. But it was “X-Men” building off of the success of “Blade” that truly got it started. We have a lot of movies to get through so lets get started. *SPOILER WARNING!*

The Top 5 Weirdest Christian Media I saw Growing Up

I’ve probably mentioned this before, but aside from being a film buff I am also a Christian. My family while believers were also never HUGE into it. Still I was exposed some Christian media growing up that is like a weird repressed memory at this point. Since I enjoy introducing people to obscure stuff others rarely talk about here goes nothing. I’m not going over “Bibleman,” I was aware of the show as my younger cousin had some tapes and toys, but I was bit too old for that and haven’t seen anything of aside from the covers.

Back to the Drawing Board: In Defense of “The Simpsons” ‘Principle and the Pauper’ Episode

There are few certainties in this world. One of the most prevalent is that ‘The Simpsons’ used to be practically perfect in every way. However, has since gone downhill. Now some of that is still open to interpretation. The public seems to agree that the golden era of the show were seasons 3 through 8. It’s not hard to see where they’re coming from in terms of the sheer amount of classic episodes that came out during that time. Personally I think the golden era extended a few seasons beyond that. In fact, season 9 contains my personal favorite episode “Lisa’s Sax.” For me the best time for “The Simpsons” were when Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein were running the show. It had the best balance of really funny jokes with genuine emotion. They quit after the 8th season as they didn’t want to overstay their welcome.

This year’s Oscars carried a more progressive and satisfactory tone with many wins for overdue talent and for more unlikely candidates.

‘Black Mirror’ Top 5 Episodes Before Season 4

The 4th season of “Black Mirror” just dropped on Netflix and for those that haven’t seen the show, I’d put it on your must watch list for 2018. As you may know, Black Mirror is a sci-fi anthology series that features episodes in modern society centered around ramifications of innovative technology. For many people, the first episode can be a bit too much but if you can stick with the show, it is worth it (will be talking about that in a minute). With the 4th installment, “Black Mirror” continues to bring forward incredibly complex and controversial plots. As a modern “Twilight Zone,” the series finds a nice blend of creative sci-fi plots and compelling storylines with superb acting. It is refreshing to see such original content with extreme plot twists and intriguing storytelling that can leave your jaw open questioning, “did they just go there?” Not many sci-fi shows can claim this. Before you begin watching season 4, here are my top 5 episodes from the previous 3 seasons. Disclaimer, I will do my best to not spoil any of the episodes.

What Defines A Christmas Movie And What Films Classify

When it comes to Christmas films, there is an adequate amount of subjectivity in regards to the which movies can be considered a holiday tradition. Movies like “Elf” or “A Christmas Story” are apparently influenced by the holiday while other films like “Die Hard” or “Gremlins” are constantly debated. So how is a film categorized as a Christmas movie?

A Look Back at Recent Trailers (1)

I’ve had this idea to make a feature out of looking at a bunch of recent trailers. You may have noticed our lack of articles for each new trailer coming out, mostly due to just how many come out at once sometimes. Now in each of these specific cases I watched them at times when it wasn’t possible to do a reaction video. So consider this a pilot-article so to speak. If this goes well I’ll try to make sure I have a reaction video with each. For now enjoy just reading my thoughts after each trailer.

Star Wars The Last Jedi: Why The Hate Is Indisputably Understandable

Midway through my review for “The Last Jedi” I have this thought weighing heavily on my shoulders. The film is visually fantastic, the lightsaber battles are amazingly well choreographed, and overall everything is well structured and cohesive throughout. But despite this movie hitting the mark as a standalone entity, it left me feeling unsatisfied as a Star Wars fan. After two years of speculation and anticipation, I can see why the hate exists and as a fanboy, I’d like to take this opportunity to further elaborate.
