Tim’s Star Wars Countdown #3 – The Force is Strong With This One

I mentioned before that the guys who do Robot Chicken get it when it comes to Star Wars because they’re obvious fanboys. Well, wait till I tell you about the 2009 movie Fanboys… Unlike the Big Bang Theory which just says something that nerds do, adds an unnecessary laugh track, and calls it comedy, Fanboys, I think, was made by people who actually cared about what they were writing about. Which is...

Tim’s Star Wars Countdown #1 – We Have a Bad Feeling About This

I’ve been back and forth about how I feel about Disney being in charge of Star Wars. They’ve produced some pretty awesome stuff and it’s wonderful to see the Star Wars franchise active again, but hearing about some of the messes they’ve had behind the scenes during production is worrying. Charles Dickens said it well: ‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.’ However, no matter what t...

Telltale Games Makes a Return and Disney+ Won’t Let You Binge (immediately)

This week in the Pretty Much Weekly, Sony and Disney hit the headlines again: Sony for a not-so-good reason and Disney for many, many good reasons. Also, the creators of the amazing The Walking Dead video game are coming back and wow, is this Fantasy Queue Simulator? Uncharted has lost its fifth director. Sony has been trying to turn Uncharted into a movie since 2009, and the latest bump in the ro...

Solo: A Blu-ray Review

People hated this movie, but I didn’t, I didn’t hate it. I think the hate was partially a spill over from the previous Star Wars movie. I think if you view this movie just on its own merits, it’s a good movie. It’s an okay movie. Just an okay slash good movie. But with your own Blu-ray copy you get some extras. First if you have a good surround sound system this is a great movie to test it out on....

Solo: A Star Wars Story

The choice to do a Han Solo origin film is one that has sat uneasily with me since the announcement. Origin stories can easily become overused in media when a fictional universe is expanding and the corporations who own it want to make as much money as possible. If you are going to do an origin film it needs to add to a character’s story and to answer some burning questions but is there really tha...
