Fan-ning The Flames: Disney Releases New "Star Wars" Teaser

Mama Fisi's picture

We've waited thirty years for this movie, and it still won't be arriving in theatres until December, but Disney's stock jumped when it released a new trailer for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

I just hope it's good.  From what I've seen so far...I'm not too optimistic.

I Bet It's On The Millennium Falcon...

The Husband was doing an image search of bomber nose art for a drawing he was working on, when he stumbled across this picture, which we felt was just too funny not to share with you all...

TV Series Review: Star vs. The Forces of Evil

Mama Fisi's picture

We just watched the first four episodes of the new Disney TV series "Star vs. The Forces of Evil." That's four 12-minute shows, folks. That is how fast and frenetic this show works.


Star Butterfly is a wild child princess from another dimension who receives a magic wand on her 14th birthday and promptly destroys her castle with it--by accident, of course. Sometimes Star is a brilliant kick-butt fighter, sometimes she's a klutz, but most of the time, she's Pinkie Pie hopped up on too much sugar.

Book Review: The Ministry of Space

The Husband picked up something we call a "baseball mitt gift"--something you buy for someone else, but it's really for your own use.  This particular present is a graphic novel, "The Ministry of Space," by Warren Ellis, Chris Weston, and Laurta Martin, with lettering by Michael Heisler.  It's a gorgeous little alternate history which cleverly uses rotoscoping and CGI modelling to produce extremely realistic cartoon images depicting what might've happened had Britain gotten to Peenemunde before the Americans did.

Movie Review: The Theory Of Everything

Mama Fisi's picture

A friend at work loaned my husband a copy of the Stephen Hawking biopic, "The Theory Of Everything."  This is an educational film, and, as such, is more to be endured than enjoyed.


Taken from the memoir of Dr. Hawking's first wife, Jane (how can there be a spoiler on history?) the film depicts the painful physical degeneration of Stephen, as well as the tremendous burden that loving and caring for him put on poor Jane.
