Ultimate Lego Star Wars (2017) – Chris Malloy, and Andrew Becraft

Lego, Star Wars, much like chocolate and peanut butter, some things just belong together. Lego has become inextricably tied to everyone’s childhood, and some of us leave it behind when we step towards that thing called adulthood, others will always have a love for it, and sometimes a massive collection to go with it. When…

The LEGO Batman Movie (2017) -Chris McKay

Bat-tastic! Is that a word? It should be. Because if Batman (Will Arnett) had his way, I’m sure that is exactly how the Caped Crusader would describe it.

Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) – Leonard Nimoy

Spock is dead. The events…

Leonard Nimoy (1931-2015)

Leonard Nimoy has boldly gone. I only had the pleasure of meeting the man once, shaking his hand briefly at a photo op that left me look rather bewildered and goofy, but is still a treasured moment. He was kind, patient, and jovial with each of his fans that day, and despite the fact that…
