Solo: A Star Wars Story: A Surprisingly Fun and Exciting Spinoff

No other film in recent years has had quite the story of a troubled production as “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” After finding themselves at creative odds with the studio, original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were fired, leading the studio to bring in Ron Howard to finish the film (though it’s now said that about 70% of it was reshot). Topping that off were the rumors that an acting coach had to be brought in to help star Alden Ehrenreich with his performance. With so much calamity going on behind the scenes, it was starting to look like the entire project was going to be a wash, especially with a delayed trailer, which didn’t look all that impressive either. However, Howard and h

Ready Player One Comes to Digital HD July 3rd and Blu-ray/DVD July 24th

One of the more pleasantly surprising offerings so far this year was Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Ernest Cline's young adult novel, "Ready Player One," which follows a young man and his friends as they race for control of a popular virtual reality environment. The film was visually striking, and while it differed considerably from Cline's excellent novel, it still told the story in an entertaining and exciting fashion, earning praise from critics and audiences. Today, Warner Bros. has announced the upcoming home releases of the film, revealing that it will first come to Digital HD on July 3rd, followed by the Blu-ray/DVD release on July 24th. The following special features have been anno

Gotham: Season Four: A Baffling Series of Missteps

For its first three seasons, “Gotham” proved itself to be one of the very best shows on television, entwining multiple storylines and characters in the “Batman” universe to produce a fascinating kind of “what if” scenario in which the beloved heroes and villains clashed before the dawn of the Caped Crusader. I know I’ve said it before, but there was no reason such an idea should have worked, and yet, somehow they’ve been able to bring it all together to make a compelling, thrilling, and downright entertaining show that has shown no signs of slowing down. Heading into the fourth season, expectations remained quite high, and once again the fans found themselves wondering if the show’s greatnes

The Walking Dead: Season Eight: A Disappointing All-Out War

***Spoiler Warning*** To say that the seventh season of “The Walking Dead” had a few problems would be something of an understatement. After a sixth season that had started to take a step in the right direction, the subsequent season once again reverted back to the show’s old ways by packing multiple episodes with filler and minimalizing plot and character development. This led to it being maligned by even the most die-hard fans of the show, and saw the ratings decline by millions of viewers. One thing was for sure, the folks in charge needed to do something to turn it around or else the decline would only continue to get worse. When it was announced that season eight would be adapting the “

First Reviews for Solo: A Star Wars Story Are In

To say that "Solo: A Star Wars Story" has had a troubled production would be putting it mildly. The original directors were fired, massive reshoots were done, and an acting coach apparently had to be called in to help Alden Ehrenreich with his performance, but now the end result has finally been seen by both critics and attendees of the Cannes Film Festival, and subsequently, the reviews have started to pour in. At the time of this article, there are 77 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, giving the film a 73% (6.5/10), and 32 reviews on Metacritic, giving the film a score of 67. These scores aren't particularly bad, though they aren't that good either. Take a look at what's being said so far: "'Sol
