I’m now doing an audio podcast where I talk to bloggers, film historians, your average film-nut, and others about movies. My first episode is about Star Wars. My friend and massive Star Wars fan Andrew and I will be discussing the prequels, “Force Awakens,” “Rogue One,” and more. We also pose the most important of life questions concerning Darth Maul.
EDIT: A slightly different version of this video was published on July 14, 2016. Due to a copyright claim from CBS, this new version features a different opening titles sequence.
Just in time for Star Trek’s 50th anniversary and the new film coming out next week, I’m coming out with the first installment of a new video series that will review every season and movie in the Star Trek franchise.

She is now the head of the Earth Kingdom’s army and has been working on bringing order and unity back to the Earth Kingdom after the events of last season. At this point, she’s brought together most of the Kingdom. She has done it, however, through questionable tactics, such as violence and throwing decenters into work camps. Kuvira will stop at nothing to get her way and will use her powerful metal-bending abilities and large army to pave down anyone who tries to stop her. With Korra having left the South Pole three months prior under the false intention of going back to Republic City, team Avatar must find her if they hope to stop Kuvira from enacting her destructive goals. With Korra still emotionally scarred, she is attempting to find herself again, but will she be able to do that and reunite with her friends before Kuvira obliterates everything she knows and loves?
