Fathers Day is this weekend, which means many of you are probably looking to spend a little quality time with dear old dad. Of all the movies I have enjoyed over the years, some of my favorites center around dads. There is just something special for me about that relationship between father and son, being both a father and a son. So, if you are looking for a great father themed film to watch this weekend, take a look at these five.
Looking back on my life, I have always enjoyed movies. A lot of who I am and what I enjoy is based on the movies I love. A few weeks ago, on Facebook I was invited by a friend to list every day one of my favorite movies, ranking them from 10 to 1. It was hard to narrow the movies I love down to just ten, and then to put them in any kind of order. However, it was also fun to take a look back at the movies I have loved and why. I thought it would be fun to review each of the movies on my list on my podcast and on my blog. Napoleon Dynamite was my number 10.
Solo is the Star Wars movie I was pretty sure we didn’t need, and I knew I didn’t want. Now that we have it though, I am pretty pleased. Basically, I went into the movie with little to no expectations, and came out happy with the latest addition to the Star Wars lore. The film is by no means perfect, but overall, it was enjoyable and fun.
Since this is my first episode related to Doctor Who, I wanted to find a way to introduce the topic to people. One idea I had was to do an interview style episode, where I was kind of interviewing myself. In the end, I thought that was really weird, so I decided not to do it. In preparation for it, though, I wrote it all down, my questions, and then my answers. I thought it might be interesting to include that here with the liner notes for this episode.

Are you ever too stubborn for your own good? It happens to me probably more than I would like to admit. It almost happened to me with Harry Potter. It’s hard to say why exactly I was so against the idea of reading the series, what held me back for so long, but i just know that for a long time, I just refused. Until I didn’t, and my whole geeky world changed.
Here it is, the much-anticipated follow-up to Monday’s episode- this part 2 of my MCU countdown. This is where you can find out which movie I have listed at number 1. For those that know me, it probably isn’t a huge surprise. I have talked about this movie a lot. I have even been a guest on another podcast to discuss this movie. It isn’t just my favorite MCU movie, it’s one of my favorite movies. Period.
Due to technical issues, I had to take last week off. I just couldn’t deliver a good, quality product, so I decided it was better to skip it. But I am back this week, and I have brought with me an epic double episode! And it is all about the MCU. The MCU now consists of 19 films. Some are better than others, and others still stand apart in a class of their own. In this episode, I begin to break down which are which. This is part 1, breaking down numbers 19-11. Part 2- the top 10- will be released on Wednesday.
Infinity War is here, and it was quite a ride. I know there are probably quite a few people who have not seen it. I get it. It is not always possible to get to the theater on opening night, sometimes you have to wait a week or two or a couple of days. I understand. For that reason, let me warn you, this episode has spoilers. A lot of spoilers. Like, seriously, don’t listen until you have seen the movie. But, then come back and listen.
For this week’s episode, I am talking all about Star Trek: The Next Generation, which may be my favorite show of all time. I don’t know, this week it feels that way, at least. It could change next week. Not because I don’t love this show, but because I am fickle like that. I’m not including the script this week for the liner notes for this episode, mainly because I tried something different with the script, and it was more of an outline, which makes it less readable as a blog post.
This week on the show, I am talking all about Superman, just in time for Action Comics #1000 to hit the store shelves on Wednesday. This is a huge, momentous occasion for me as a lifelong Superman fan. What I have included this week for the show liner notes is basically the script I wrote up for the episode. It’s long, but I think it is interesting to see where I went off script and what I changed in the moment when I was on the mic.
Plus it gives me an opportunity to add in some visual extras that you couldn’t hear in the show. I hope you enjoy.
