Lessons from a Jedi Master


One of my favorite moments from The Empire Strikes Back is when Jedi Master Yoda tries to comfort Luke and impart a lesson: “Look at me… Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? And well you should not… For my ally ...

Daredevil Season 2 Brings the Pain

Punisher Cover

I really enjoyed the first season of Daredevil. It channeled that Dark Knight vibe and brought a much-needed grittiness to the candy-like aesthetics of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It certainly pushed the boundaries with its violence and sense of realism (despite being a show about super ...

Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Finishes Strong

Vader 2

Star Wars Rebels definitely had a weak start with its first season. The second started to pick up and progressively got better. There were a few episodes near the end that felt like filler, but they still served a purpose ...

Impressions of Broken Angels

woken furies - Cover

So I just finished Broken Angels, the sequel to Altered Carbon. Unlike its predecessor, Broken Angels lacks the pacing and twists that made Altered Carbon such a great read. The world of Takeshi Kovachs is still gritty, visceral and fascinating. From that aspect, it was a great ...

Impressions of Altered Carbon

Altered Carbon Cover

I read Altered Carbon a few years back. I recently picked it up again to see if the novel was just as good as I remembered it. Well, I wasn’t disappointed. Altered Carbon still kicks ass. The premise behind the novels is basically this – ...

Impressions of Mass Effect 3


I finally sat down years after Mass Effect 3 came out to finish Shepherd’s tale. I originally swore off Mass Effect 3 in a fit of rage at the game’s endings. Bioware somewhat amended that in the extended cut, by providing more information on what the hell the ...
