Spider-Man: Far from Home — a movie review

With this movie in my rearview mirror, only Captain Marvel remains as an obstacle to my completion of Phase 3 of the MCU. As of the day I’m typing this post, I’m not sure where we’ve landed with the Sony vs. Marvel negotiations. I thought Spidey was removed from our MCU continuity, but now I’m […]

True Romance — a movie review

I can’t remember if I watched True Romance the first time before or after I watched Reservoir Dogs, although I’m certain I watched neither until after I watched Pulp Fiction. If I had to guestimate a date, I’d say I watched it around 1997. This would have been three years after the movie bombed in […]

Rogue One: a Star Wars story (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter Nine: The Ending Kinda Sucks (or: Here’s the Deal with the Bothans)

  02:00:01 – 02:13:49 Chapter Nine of the Rogue Edition of the 15-Minute Force isn’t even 15 minutes in length. But, the movie isn’t over yet as the chapter opens. To recap: many of our Rogue One players have already died, including Chirrut Imwe, Baze Malbus, and K-2SO. Imperial Director Orson Krennic is lying, shot, […]

Baby Driver – a movie review

Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter Two: Jedi Balls on the Titanic (Or, A Question of Paternity?)

    00:15:01 – 00:30:00 As our previous chapter of the 15-Minute Force concluded, Anakin Skywalker had just lopped off Count Dooku’s Christopher Lee head at Chancellor Palpatine’s command. When Anakin paused for a moment to feel a little bad about it, Palpatine reminded him that he was already a bad person who did bad […]

Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (a 15-Minute Force production): Chapter One: Oh, I Have a Bad Feeling About This, Too

  00:00:00 – 00:15:00 Here I stand, happy to begin the first chapter of the third installment of the prequel trilogy, Revenge of the Sith, and our nineteenth chapter overall. Before I started the 15-Minute Force project, inspired by Alex Robinson and Pete the Retailer’s most excellent Star Wars Minute podcast, I didn’t remember the […]
