Fresh Content Day 45: Breaking Down Star Wars Ep VIII – The Last Jedi Trailer

The Disney/Marvel/Lucasfilm wiseguys decided one awesome trailer this week wasn’t enough. So they graced us with one of the most anticipated trailers in recent memory. Star Wars Episode VIII – The Last Jedi Let’s break down this one just like we did the Thor trailer earlier in the week. It opens with a rock. Or rather, a rocky surface. And then suddenly – BAM! Rey drops on screen. She looks like she’s sweating and she’s gasping for air. She reminds me of how Luke looked inĀ Empire Strikes Back when Yoda was training him in the ways of the Force....

Fresh Content Day 44: Marvel’s Ultimatum

Now before you start wondering, let me clear the air here. I’m not giving Marvel an Ultimatum. I’m not saying “put Steve Rogers back in the red, white, and blue” or “for crying out loud, please cast Nathan Fillion in something more than voice work!” Marvel isn’t handing out ultimatums to Sony or 20th Century Fox or anything lile that regarding any of their properties. This is about “Marvel Ultimatum,” a five-issue mini-series that was published in 2008-2009. Best I can tell, it takes place in Marvel’s Ultimate universe. Written by the incredible Jeph Loeb and penciled by David...

Fresh Content Day 43: Life with a Toddler

My wife and I tried for years to start a family. While we had our struggles – including losing one pregnancy about twelve weeks in – our friends were having their first...

Fresh Content Day 42: The Podcast That Will Never Be

So I’ve dropped this topic on a few recent episodes of the podcast, I’ve hinted at an upcoming episode I’d like to have where I discuss some parts of some classic Disney movies that are overlooked in the grand scheme of the story. At the time, I told you to give me a classic Disney feature animation, and I’d find at least one thing to complain about. Well, y’all forgot to submit your entries to be a part of the show, so I’m taking matters into my own hands. There may be more to this down the road, but...

Fresh Content Day 41? – Thor Ragnarok Trailer Breakdown

Well, let’s get the math out of the way right away, before I catch any grief. In the Christian calendar, Lent is 40 days. This is Post 41. IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE! But wait, the forty days is from Ash Wednesday to Palm Sunday. Now we’re in Holy Week. We are not yet to Easter, so you still get posts (if you want them…and based on the numbers, you do). So today we had a little [teaser] trailer drop forĀ Thor: Ragnarok. Now I just talked about Norse mythology on Saturday. I thought the first Thor movie was brilliant,...
