The Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 1

The Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 1 follows everybody’s favorite bounty hunter on Tatooine after he takes over Jabba’s Palace. “Jabba ruled with fear, I intend to rule with respect.” – Boba Fett Here’s what we know about the series: it is set within the timeline of The Mandalorian and Ahsoka. My guess is that it takes place between season 2 and season 3. We know that Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) does not get his Mandalorian…

Bambi, Walt Disney, and Antisemitism

Bambi might be a cute film about a deer and his friends but the source material was intended to serve as a warning for antisemitism. The film takes place through various portions of Bambi’s life: baby, young, adolescent, and young adult. The film is only 70 minutes long so I’m not going to rehash the plot in-depth. After Bambi’s mother is no longer there to look after them, the Great Prince of the Forest takes…

YouTube TV Yanks Disney, ESPN, SEC Network

At midnight ET, YouTube TV yanked ABC, Disney, ESPN, SEC Network, Freeform, National Geographic and the other Disney-owned networks. (Sunday PM update: An agreement was reached.) When I moved apartments in 2018, I made the decision to cut the cord after seeing how high the RCN bill was at the time. I don’t ask a lot of cable providers except for two things: the ability to watch the MLB Network and Kentucky Wildcats. And now,…

Shang-Chi Arrives On Home Video

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings makes its arrival on home video as the second post-blip feature in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Before you read any further, the film features both a mid-credits scene and an end-credits scene. In theory, this is the second feature film of Phase 4. However, Black Widow was first but it takes place during the Phase 3 era. This film is noticeably post-blip with its references (signs or…

Hawkeye, Kate Bishop Team Up in New MCU Series

The focus is as much on Clint Barton as it is on Kate Bishop in the newest Marvel Studios series, Hawkeye, airing on Disney+. I want to apologize for not having this review up sooner. While I did watch both episodes on November 19, I wanted to wait until I could watch without a watermark. When I watched the first two episodes, the watermark–my email address–stretched in the center from one end of the screen…
