For as long as I've been a Star Wars fan, I've also been a Disney fan. Growing up in California, trips to Disneyland were a regular occurrence, and I was raised with a steady diet of Walt's classics. As I grew older I began to really study Walt Disney, and by the time I was in Junior High and into High school, Disney was going through what would become known as their renaissance or second golden a... more.

Fox has been going all out to make sure people knew about the new JJ Abrams sci-fi series Almost Human, and they debuted the trailer last night before The Simpsons. From the other half of what made Fringe great, the series started off better than I expected and as of now it has a spot on my DVR for at least the first few episodes. Set in the near future (around 2048) the series is a darker futu... more.

Why The first Thor Film Is Better Than Captain America: The First Avenger There apparently is a geek rift regarding the question: “Which is the better superhero movie, Thor or Captain America: The First Avenger?” Thor, without a doubt, is the better film. It succeeds visually, and in terms of character and theme, is more effective than Cap is. Now, much of this is due t... more.

Those who didn’t attend the Expo and only got their information from angry people on Social Media may think there was no Star Wars presence at the show at all, and that i... more.

One of the first online RPGs I ever played was the old Neverwinter Nights on AOL in the 90s. Before Ultima Online, the game turned the classic AD&D "Gold Box" games into a multiplayer game on the AOL service, and because of that the Neverwinter name has special meaning to many gamers. BioWare and Obisian brought back Neverwinter Nights in single-player PC RPGs over the last decade, which have thri... more.

When news comes along of a new Superman reboot, I immediately switch into defensive mode. As a lifetime Superman fan, who could blame me? Ever since the Donner movies; Warner has tried to breathe new life into the Man of Steel on the big screen. In the 90s, they hired Kevin Smith who actually produced an excellent, and very true to the comics, script that drew from the Death of Superman storyline.... more.
