Star Wars Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi – Episodes 1-4

by Miller C. Lashbrook Let me first begin with my overall thoughts of the show so far. It is so nice to be spending time with Obi-Wan Kenobi again. Seeing an Obi-Wan that bridges the gap between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope is so interesting. This is not a show about moreContinue reading “Star Wars Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi – Episodes 1-4”

by Miller C. Lashbrook So, hear me out… I have this blog, I am trying to write more often (scripts, blogs, and fiction), and I am planning to switch from teaching to working in film.

MCU Review: What If…? – Episode 5

by Miller C. Lashbrook I’m possibly the most anticipated episode of Marvel’s What If…?, fans are introduced to the MCU’s zombie universe.

SPOILERS AHEAD During the events of Infinity War, whenContinue reading “MCU Review: What If…? – Episode 5”

MCU Review: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

by Miller C. Lashbrook Wow, wow, wow! After Black Widow over the summer seemed like average Marvel to me, I managed my expectations for the Marvel movies. But Shang-Chi blew those expectations out of the water. This movie is funny, thrilling, emotional, and wondrous all at once. This is the first movie since Spider-Man: FarContinue reading “MCU Review: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”

MCU Review: What If…? – Episode 4

by Miller C. Lashbrook I have been under the impression that each of the What If episodes has had a thesis at its core. This episode just like the previous asks questions of death. On the surface it is about grief, but really it is about how some people help to be our conscious. TheContinue reading “MCU Review: What If…? – Episode 4”

MCU Review: What If…? – Episode 3

by Miller C. Lashbrook Each episode of this fantastic animated show from Marvel has done something different. The first episode focuses on the difference that staying in the room can make. The second episode addresses nature versus nurture and the difference one being can make. This episodes thesis seems to be about the impact thatContinue reading “MCU Review: What If…? – Episode 3”

Movie Review: Candyman (2021)

by Miller C. Lashbrook Nia DaCosta’s Candyman is the perfect spiritual successor to the 1992 film with fitting social commentary for today and a visual aesthetic on the level of the best that cinema has to offer. Last October my fiancé and I made a list of horror and supernatural movies to watch leading upContinue reading “Movie Review: Candyman (2021)”
