This special episode of the show is all Star Wars all the time. We discuss the movie in depth with spoilers aplenty, the box office, and what may become of these characters in future films.
We kick off the show by digging into and reviewing the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 limited collection. We also talk Power Man on Netflix, phone locking in theaters, and how Coppola says Star Wars is a pity!
1 The Hateful Eight Another homerun for Tarantino. It takes a talented writer to make a group of despicable characters likable, and Tarantino shows his gift for these types of characters in The Hateful Eight. 2 Steve Jobs Director Danny Boyle may have been behind the camera of this gently fictionalized account of Apple’s visionary […]
Another year and another slew of movies. Although, this year, more than others, I wish that we could make a worst movie list of 2015. I’m looking at you The Last Five Years, which was the biggest film let down for me since The Matrix sequels. BUT I digress… here are my picks for the […]
“The best films through the eyes of the jet setter!” It’s that time of year again, the announcement of the contributors top ten movies of 2015. Our seasonal film ball games were epic and showcased many of the films that turned the box office into the Hunger Games. No joke… records were constantly challenged and […]
10) Jurassic World Directed by Colin Trevorrow Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio The park is back open. We get to return to the raptors and the T-Rexes that we fell in love with over 20 years ago with this reverent next stage in probably Walt Disney’s worst nightmare. While not being able […]
10. Jupiter Ascending You know, i was a huge fan of the Witchaowski siblings back in 2012 with Cloud Atlas, even though everyone else thought it was a so-so film. I was on-board for anything they wanted to do in the future and got excited to see Jupiter Ascending, only to hear it was being […]
Director: Rob McCallum Starring: Jay Bartlett It would seem that CultureSmash editor Stephen Lackey deemed me the best candidate to review Nintendo Quest which bills itself as “The Most Unofficial and Unauthorized Nintendo Documentary Ever!” Stephen was right to choose me for the job. Not only do I love video game history, I’m also a […]
A short film should be a pleasant escape, a captive storytelling experience that makes its points and leaves you wanting more or completes a personal thought. There is an art to making a short film and it takes a special person or people to accomplish a career making these art forms. Two brothers,The Quay twins, […]
Directed by: JJ Abrams Starring: Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, adam Driver I’ve seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens twice in the theater now, once in IMAX 3D and again in a standard theater. I love the film very much. JJ Abrams and his team did a lot of great things right. […]
Directed by: Ryan Coogler Starring: Michael b. Jordon, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Phylicia Rashad Melodrama is a tricky thing to get right. With that said bad melodrama can even be successful in some demographics. As a general rule the melodrama displayed on the Lifetime Channel is pretty poorly executed. That’s judgment on fans of the […]

Inside Amy Schumer: Season 3 Created by, Written by, and Starring: Amy Schumer Anytime anyone shares a video with me, chances are it’s from one of three places: Saturday Night Live, Key and Peele, or Inside Amy Schumer. This woman is one of the most hilarious human beings on the planet! Sadly, I only got […]
Written/Directed by: Quentin Tarantino Starring: Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen I believe I was in the minority when I was disappointed to see that Tarantino’s next film after Django Unchained would be another western. I loved Django Unchained but I really wanted to see the prolific writer/director invade […]
