00:30:01 – 00:45:00 As we begin a new chapter of the Star Wars Edition of 15-Minute Force I can’t help but to think back to 1977, when no one realized this was actually the fourth episode of the saga—or Episode IV: A New Hope, as it came to be known a few years later.

As always, my bit of stolen wisdom: Happiness is Looking Forward to Something I believe this statement, even if it seems trite. I am truly happy only when I have something that I’m looking forward to doing, seeing or experiencing. And, today, I’m looking forward to a lot of things. I separate these things into […]Read more "Looking Forward: update (Feb 2018)"
When I began the Boldly Going project, in which I will watch every minute of televised Star Trek produced to-date, my plan was to post reviews of each season and then of individual episodes that I thought stood out from the rest.

00:15:01 – 00:30:00 This chapter of the Star Wars Edition of 15-Minute Force opens with a long shot of the Jawa sandcrawler doing its thing, crawling through the sand. It’s a night shot and it looks very good to me, even though I realize the sandcrawler is a model that probably stands waist-high, if […]Read more "Star Wars (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter Two: Everybody Lies About Everything (Or: Luke Sets Out On A Different Career Path Than Biggs And Tank)"
I don’t think I know anyone locally who is watching Star Trek: Discovery (DSC). I had a former co-worker who would have loved this show, but he passed away a year or so ago. This is the type of series that needs to be discussed with close friends, over coffee, or perhaps even over […]Read more "|||[Boldly Going]||| Star Trek: Discovery: Season 1 – a review"
00:00:00 – 00:15:00 You may have noticed that I eschewed the “A New Hope” subtitle for this, the Star Wars Edition of 15-Minute Force. I’m not really trying to make a statement, or a stand, or anything here. If I were making a statement, it would be this: I think I may be a […]Read more "Star Wars (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter One: A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far, Far Away . . ."
I can’t compare Just Cause 3, which I’m playing on the PS4, to either of the previous installments. I never played those. I will compare it to Far Cry 3, which is the game it initially reminded me of. I liked Far Cry 3 a lot. I loved the setting, with the mountains and […]Read more "Just Cause 3 – a video game review"
