Star Wars Review: Andor – Episodes 1-4

by Miller C. Lashbrook So, you probably noticed that this review is coming a week after Andor‘s three-episode Disney+ premiere. This is partially due to the fact that I wanted to talk about the show on the podcast this past weekend, but also because, as I said on the podcast, I didn’t really enjoy allContinue reading “Star Wars Review: Andor – Episodes 1-4”

TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 6

by Miller C. Lashbrook This week was the major test of the strength of this show. We follow up an extraordinary episode of television with an episode where four of our main characters are recast as we take a ten-year time jump. The show not only pulls off this feat but sticks the landing withContinue reading “TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 6”

TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 5

by Miller C. Lashbrook THIS is television! This show just keeps topping itself each week, and this is the politicking matching the best of Game of Thrones. Weddings are obviously special in this franchise, and in this episode, the… “Gold Wedding”… lives up to the standard set by the Red and Purple weddings. SPOILERS AHEADContinue reading “TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 5”

TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 4

by Miller C. Lashbrook House of the Dragon is so good. This episode was definitely a slow burn with a lot of character work for our four leads. This week I think is really setting up the conflicts for the future. I just cannot state enough how the writing, production, direction, and acting all comeContinue reading “TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 4”

TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 3

by Miller C. Lashbrook House of the Dragon delivers, in my humble opinion, its best episode yet with writing and direction at the level of the best of Game of Thrones. This episode has it all: dragons, family drama, medieval symbolism, and ACTION. If the first two episodes did not have your attention, watch thisContinue reading “TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 3”

TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 2

by Miller C. Lashbrook House of the Dragon continues to bring me right back into the old feeling of watching Game of Thrones this week. I really enjoyed the continued character dynamics explored in this episode, specifically that of the Small Counsel and the Royal Family. Princess Rhaenyra is quickly showing that she is notContinue reading “TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 2”

TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 1

by Miller C. Lashbrook Wow! In the first few minutes alone, House of the Dragon sends us right back to Westeros like we never left. I know many were apprehensive to tune in because of the mixed finale season of Game of Thrones, but this world is just too good not to come back to.Continue reading “TV Review: House of the Dragon – Episode 1”

TV Review: Westworld Season 4

by Miller C. Lashbrook Westworld has had a tough time finding its voice and purpose after leaving the theme park setting. Season 3 and 4 both have similar issues of brushing up against what I loved about the show so much, but then straying away from it. The first half of this season was excitingContinue reading “TV Review: Westworld Season 4”

MCU Review: I am Groot

by Miller C. Lashbrook This is going to be a quick review, but I am Groot on Disney+. This set of 5 shorts is absolutely charming and funny. This was exactly what I was expecting from this show and it was a great treat to have waiting for me at the end of the firstContinue reading “MCU Review: I am Groot”

Movie Review: Lightyear

by Miller C. Lashbrook Lightyear is a way better movie than people shared upon its release. It is a shame that this movie did not get more attention. I can see Andy sitting in the movie theater watching this very 90’s feeling science fiction/action film and wanting to get the toy after, thinking that whileContinue reading “Movie Review: Lightyear”
