Category Archives: Lists of Six!
New this week, Marvel Comics has announced their Outlawed storyline, in which teenage superheroes will be outlawed by the federal government. Oddly, this will lead to a whole new relaunch of a bunch of teen superhero comics, like Champions, New Warriors, Power Pack and potentially more! It’s as if they didn’t even hear the new law!
I think it’s an interesting storyline idea and I wish Marvel all the best in seeing it through! And it got me thinking about my favorite teen superheroes. There have been a lot over the years, but as I looked over the lists I found online, I realized my own favorites list was pretty small. I discovered that I haven’t really been a big fan of teenage superheroes over the years. I’m a fan of a lot of young adult, early-20s, college-aged superheroes like Squirrel Girl or the Slingers. But teens? It’s a short, tight list!

2020 is going to be a great year for video games — hopefully! Around this time of year, I usually put together a list of my most anticipated movies. But honestly, there aren’t too many movies in the new year I’m really excited about. Whereas I’m practically giddy about some of the great video games we’ve got coming up!
Last year wasn’t a big year for video games for me. I spent about 90% of the year just playing Red Dead Redemption Online, and was happy for it. I’m currently loving the heck out of Death Stranding and its meticulous gameplay. And I’ve got a few other games in the pocket to pick up next. Hopefully those will hold me over until some of these gems come out!
Join me after the jump for six video games I am quite excited about in 2020! And feel free to share some of your own anticipated games in the comments!
Happy New Year, everybody! Like pretty much every pop culture site on the internet, I do a round-up for my favorite things of the past year. Unlike all those professional sites with their professional standards and plenty of employees, I just try to bang out my favorites in a couple different categories. Mostly, there were a ton of good TV shows this year!
I had a little trouble coming up with some bonus categories. I don’t really listen to music, so I can’t judge that. And I need to get my Lists of Six up to six. Sometimes I’ve done my favorite toys of the year, but then I didn’t really buy too many memorable action figures or LEGO models. And sometimes I’d done my favorite new thing on the internet, but I don’t think I saw too many new and exciting things. And there weren’t many memorable movie trailers!
So join me after the jump to see what I eventually came up with! Along with my favorite video games, TV shows, movies and comic books! Feel free to share your own favorites in the comments!
Here we are at the end of the Skywalker Saga of Star Wars movies and I’m glad it’s over. No more waiting, no more anticipating. Now Star Wars is free to tell new stories with now protagonists and new adventures! But before we get to all of that, let’s take just a moment and think over Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Movie Rating: 7/10 – Good.
I went into this movie ready to be cynical. I’d read a bunch of reviews, seen all the headlines and prepared myself for something aggressively fan-servicey. I was perfectly happy with The Last Jedi, aside from a few nitpicks, and I found it laughably funny when I heard how drastically Rise of Skywalker attempted to “course correct” to appease the haters. How disappointing.
But it turns out, I’m a sucker for good Star Wars fan service! I loved almost all of the twists and surprises and came out of the movie feeling excited and entertained. A couple of the fan service things made me roll my eyes, but I’m pleased with the overall film. It was all perfectly fine.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker comes out this week and I wanted to make the occasion with a Star Wars List of Six. I’ve done some great ones in the past, like my list of crazy alien Jedi or my list of other famous wookiees. But for this week’s List of Six, I’ve decided to give my review of another big recent Star Wars property: the video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order!
Comic Rating: 7/10 – Good.
I’ll probably also review Rise of Skywalker and even The Mandalorian soon, so look out for those. But now I want to delve into Fallen Order, the best Star Wars game in quite some time, and hopefully the herald of some new games going forward. It’s an original story with original characters, set in a very familiar universe. I was wary about the game based on the trailers. And while my concerns weren’t overcome, I still had fun with Fallen Order. It was a quick game, I beat it over two rental weekends, and now it’s time to be super late in my review!
Join me after the jump for my thoughts on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Expect some SPOILERS for the game in the review. And feel free to share your own review and thoughts in the comments!
