Star-Wars: A Movie Journey from Primitive Technological Si-Fi to the Contemporary Genre
Image Credits The brainchild of George Lucas and perhaps one of his finest achievements, The Star Wars media franchise is a grand space opera of epic proportions. From its humble beginnings to larger-than-life influence, there is no doubt that the saga exerts an intense and overwhelming impact on pop culture. The films alone by themselves […]
What was the Merovingian ranting about in Matrix: Resurrections?
If you’ve seen Matrix: Resurrections you know that the scene with the Merovingian rant is partially undecipherable. Not only does he rant with a thick French accent, but there’s also a fight going on at the same time. Below is a copy of the closed captioning of his lines. I hope it helps. You? Oh! It […]
Is there anything extra during the end credits of The Matrix Resurrections?
There are extras during the end credits of The Matrix Resurrections. At the very end of the credits is a 30 second extra scene. It’s snarky and doesn’t involve the plot or any main characters, or hopefully, anything to follow in The Matrix franchise. You won’t be missing anything if you skip it. The credits run for approximately […]
Movie Review – The Matrix Resurrections
There’s so much to break down here. I’ll keep the review spoiler-free to begin with and give you a warning before I get into spoilers. I’m a huge Matrix fan. I’ve seen the trilogy, plus Animatrix, a number of times and just finished a complete rewatch of all 4 prior to Resurrections coming out today. Overall, I […]
Is there anything extra during the end credits of Spider-Man: No Way Home?

Movie Review – Spider-Man: No Way Home
When I read about the multiverse plot for Spider-Man: No Way Home I thought it would either be awesome, or horrible. I was hugely relieved to see that they landed closer to the side of awesome. The writers—Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers—both wrote the previous two Spider-Man movies together, so fortunately No Way Home maintains the […]

Movie Review – Don’t Look Up
This was an A+ movie at all levels: acting, directing, story, message, humor, cinematography, wardrobe… Okay, maybe not wardrobe. But still: A+ In case you didn’t already know, Don’t Look Up is a satire on the USA’s reaction to climate change, but they replaced the climate crisis with a comet. What stands out most for me is […]
Movie Review – Dune From A Dune Virgin
To hear all the kerfuffle going on you’d assume that what was coming was something akin to a new branch of the Star Wars mythology, an interim MCU phase, or a new found Tolkien saga. Instead, what we have is a film of an, allegedly, unfilmable novel… actually, series of novels if the franchise takes […]
