Let’s talk about Godzilla (audio post)

Hey friends, have a new audio post up on a franchise I thoroughly enjoy; Godzilla. Godzilla is a long running (it’s 63 years old!) monster franchise that has sparked 31 films, two American adaptations, cartoons, and some great comics. You can check it out by hitting play on the video down below! Some technical notes; […]

Alien: Covenant

I was gonna try to ease into this, but the heck with that; this is hands down the best Alien film since James Cameron’s first sequel ‘Aliens’ in 1984 (dub check year), and a great film in its own right. Not only that, it is a course correction from the previous prequel Prometheus – and […]

Lego Marvel Superheroes: Maximum Overload

If I learned nothing else from Linkara’s History of Power Rangers series it’s that silly shows  aimed at kids can be seriously analyzed or talked about at some length, and that brings us to this…Lego Marvel Superheroes: Maximum Overload, a webseries (collected into one episode) I stumbled upon on Netflix the other night with my amazing wife.

This isn’t going to be a long post, it’s something that just kinda hit me while doing a lecture with Gordon Conwell this morning after the speaker (Dr McDonough) addressed it: we need to measure our rights (and entitlements, as these often go hand in hand unfortunately) and put them behind/below our love for others. […]

Wonder Woman was wonderful.

Some titles just write themselves. Wonder Woman is easily the best film of the DCEU, but it deserves a better compliment than that, because frankly that’s not a challenge (Man of Steel was the only one that has been alright so far). Wonder Woman on the other hand  was a really good movie, as well as […]

Pray for our leaders

This is probably gonna be a short post. So this week, premier Kathleen Wynne announced that minimum wage in Ontario will be increased to $14 come January of 2018, and then $15 in January of 2019. The reaction to it has been mixed. A lot of people at my work making minimum wage are thrilled. Others […]
