Ranking the MCU

With Avengers Infinity War upon us, I’m gonna share my MCU film rankings from worst to best. Some will disagree with my placements, but we can talk about in the comments! Now a little bit of a primer, some of these change every so often (with the exception of 1,2, and 18), and while I […]

A Collection of Thoughts 5: The Mysterious Island

I’ll be straight up, with that title – I couldn’t decide between a Fast 5 and a Star Trek V (awful film), so I went with The Land Before Time…an amazing film that spawned a 13-sequel musical franchise for kids where our heroes end up in sharp-tooth territory, sing loudly about being afraid…and don’t end […]

A Chat With Matt Percy from Cardboard Koinonia

  On today’s episode of One Cross Radio, we are joined by our good friend Matt Percy from Cardboard Koinonia. Matt and his awesome wife Jen started Cardboard Koinonia as a non-profit and church ministry last year, and have been growing steadily and doing really cool things since – like a 24hr gaming marathon to […]

Our friends at Cardboard Koinonia

Hey y’all! Just doing a quick plug (because I want to) for our friends over at Cardboard Koinonia now have their very own youtube channel which you can check out RIGHT HERE!!! If you can, please like, comment, and share their stuff. Matt and Jen are both dear friends and siblings in Christ of mine, and they’re making a […]

Saban’s recent Power Rangers movie

Today’s short post is brought to you by me wanting to blog while my puppy Luna has her morning nap. What am I wanting to talk about? Saban’s recent Power Rangers movie. I’ll be straight up – I didn’t really care for it. First time I watched up, I was like “cool, this was alright” – […]

Let’s Talk About – The MCU with Steve

  Today we’re back with my friend and yours Steve Lambert, and we’re looking at the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With the culmination of the MCU right around the corner with Avengers: Infinity War, we revisit the MCU from it’s beginning and go through all its phases, its shows, its highs, its lows, and where we’d […]

Jessica Jones Season 2

For the spoiler-free crowd, here’s your summation: it starts off strong but after the 4th episode the show’s momentum starts to sputter and drag. It lacks the hook and driving focus of the first season. That’s not to say it’s bad, there is a lot of solid character moments (/growth), acting, and some great episodes. […]

Let’s Talk About – Which Prequel Trilogy Was Worse: Star Wars or The Hobbit with Mike Naulls

  On today’s episode of One Cross Radio, we are rejoined by longtime friend and film-maker Mike Naulls, and we’re discussing which prequel trilogy is worse – Star Wars Episodes I-III or the Hobbit – two trilogies that were considered a huge down for a lot of fans in their respective franchises. Hope you all enjoy […]

Some of my favourite elements from the Star Wars Expanded Universe

Now up front, I feel I owe an apology to both the Heir of the Empire(/Thrawn Trilogy) and Dark Empire trilogies of novels and comics. In my zeal for Shadows of the Empires impact, I think I may have downplayed their respective impacts. Star Wars was almost dead in the water after the Ewoks and […]

The Problem With Christian Media by Josh Keefe

  I love when I stumble upon stuff on youtube – it’s how I found History of Power Rangers and Screen Junkies, and it’s how I came upon these excellent videos from Josh Keefe. The two-part series (about Christian music and Christian film) is informed by its thesis statement/challenge: “As Christians who believe in a limitless […]
