Snapped Back Into Reality - "WandaVision" So Far

 As a fan of the MCU, I was pretty excited about WandaVision simply because it was part of the larger story. Once it was revealed that it would be a partial tribute to classic television my excitement level increased. I grew up with syndicated television reruns, everything from "I Love Lucy" to "The Brady Bunch" and onward. I was ready. And just like that, watching the first two episodes (which were tributes to "Lucy," "The Dick Van Dyke Show," and "Bewitched") sent me into classic T.V. nostalgia warmness. All the while dropping weird glitches and hints at something much more serious and sinister. Many fans were just outright confused. I can't say that I truly knew where all this was going but the nods to T.V. were keeping my attention. The third episode (being a "Brady Bunch" homage) brought even more glitches and weirdness and MCU fans were slowly starting to have their own theories about what was going on. As this fourt

A New Age Of Gods & Monsters ("Godzilla Vs. Kong")

 Much like a good chunk of 2020 theatrical releases, the much anticipated monster mash "Godzilla Vs. Kong" was pushed into the new year. And fans had to temper their expectations just a little while longer.  And so here we are into 2021. And though this was never the ideal rollout for this Hollywood blockbuster in the making, the delay and the overall pent up demand for big screen mega films has actually HELPED what was already a film fans were greatly looking forward to into a frenzy that is boiling over.  The trailer release is nothing less than a rousing success. What fans were expecting from the meeting of these two titans of movie monster history was met with great action and exciting visuals. Nothing less should be expected for The Two Kings Of Monsters. Would we have gotten the same amount of fan excitement for this upcoming smash had 2020 not left a giant hole in the normalcy of humanity and were there not a yearning for the days of fresh popcorn, refreshments, a fanc

Long Live The Goblin King (Happy Birthday David Bowie)

Jareth The Goblin King. Starman. Ziggy Stardust.  Call him what you will. He was many things. But most of all he was David Bowie, one of the most influential musicians/artists of his day.  A visual genius of the glam rock genre, he presented himself as an actor would in performances. His roles would change as he progressed. But make no mistake...he wasn't a 'all flash and no substance' type of artist. His music was indeed great and stands the test of time to this day and will for generations to come.  Aside from a legendary music career he was a magnificent actor. I knew him from the '80's as a kid watching the "Let's Dance" video and as the Goblin King in Jim Henson and George Lucas' classic fantasy film "Labyrinth." A combination of dark whimsey and fantastical rock the film made a lasting impression and it is what comes to mind when I think of him, despite his iconic rock moments. He was born on January 8th 1947 and though he left us o
