Galavant Episodes One and Two

ABC’s new four week mini-series Galavant premiered this past Sunday, an ambitious musical-comedy that will total eight episodes. It’s basically Monty Python meets a Disney musical (well, one of the more modern Disney musicals), which makes sense because it was created by Tangled screenwriter Dan Fogelman with music by recurring Disney composer Alan Menken. I would ...


Friends is now on Netflix, or Why couldn’t it be Seinfeld?

Friends is now on Netflix, but why couldn’t it be Seinfeld? We’ll get all the great moments of Phoebe, Monica, Rachel, Ross, Chandler, and that guy Matt LeBlanc plays, but why couldn’t it be Jerry, Elaine, Kramer, and George? Every episode of a show about a group of pals, but why couldn’t it be a ...


Into the Woods Review

Into the Woods took me on a fantastical adventure through many timeless fairy tales with added twists and turns. I went into the movie knowing pretty well what to expect, though I did find myself wondering if my fellow audience members knew prior that it was a musical.

Netflix Pick: Knights of Badassdom

So, I recently watched this little cult-y piece of nerdom on Netflix the other day. Knights of Badassdom is an (very obviously) independent film from B-movie director Joe Lynch. This movie is good and bad and good, in a bad way. The cast contains some surprisingly big names, including Summer Glau and Peter Dinklage.


Two songs from upcoming Into the Woods released

I’m getting very excited for the Christmas day release of Into the Woods, the upcoming Disney musical. The other day I watched the recorded ’80’s Broadway version staring Bernadette Peters. At first a bit worried it might spoil the film, it actually made me that much more excited. Unlike some, I think this is a ...


Star Wars, Jurassic World, and Pan Trailers

Some pretty exciting movie trailers have come out over the past couple weeks, along with many fake trailers. Having been a huge Peter Pan fan my whole life, dating back to the live action filmed Broadway production that I watched as a kid on a regular basis, I’m pretty much all over anything related to ...


Short Story Pick: The Discovered Country

Ian R. MacLeod’s The Discovered Country takes place in Farside, a virtual afterlife for the wealthy.


Saga: Volumes I-III

Last week I finished reading Volumes I-III of the Saga graphic novel series by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Fiona Staples. It has been a while since I’ve read a graphic novel, but this series has inspired me to remember how great the storytelling can be.
