Wheel of Time For a First-Time Reader: Video Reviews of The First 3 Adventures

I wrote previously about my reasons for finally deciding to dive into Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time. Since the editor here is so nice, he has decided it was fine by him to continue chronicling my adventures as a novice through “Randland.” For those who missed it, I recorded these first three “video diaries” immediately after finishing each to help me keep track of what happened in which book and I recently decided to turn them into individual reviews. Below you will find the video review for The Eye of The World, The Great Hunt, and The Dragon Reborn. I’m

Why I Decided to Read Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time

I already touched on my interest in the Wheel of Time series in my post asking if the soon to come Amazon series could be the successor to Game of Thrones. But since then I have read three and a half books in the 14 book long Wheel of Time and I came to a conclusion; I need to document this journey because it’s going to be a wild one. So, I started making “video diaries” to get my thoughts out there and I had planned to release them all after I finished the series. Turns out this video would

Why Zack’s Explanation For The ‘Martha Scene’ from ‘Batman vs. Superman’ Does Not Work For Me

Let me start out with, I have watched Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice many times. Whenever it comes on, I’ll stop and watch it. So I like the film for the most part. But there has always been two parts that I have struggled with. One being the “infamous” Martha scene. Anyone who has seen the film knows what I’m talking about. Recently, at The Director’s Cuts” panel at Pasadena’s ArtCenter College of Design on Sunday, Snyder addressed this much talked about scene and how they came about their reasoning for it. It’s funny, because we, [screenwriter] Chris Terrio

It’s Miyagi-Do or No Mercy in Cobra Kai Season 2

One of the most pleasant surprises of 2018 was the first YouTube Red original series Cobra Kai actually being quite good. As someone who grew up in the 80’s and has hated the bastardization of many movies and TV series from the time that have been made for a quick cash grab, this was a welcome surprise. When the first season of Cobra Kai was released, I went into it not expecting much and my wife and I ran through all 10 episodes in a single sitting. With a cliffhanger ending that had fans of the original Karate Kid movie
