Game of Your Life Family Movie Review

The newest film in the Family Movie Night collection discusses the importance of choice and dealing with the consequences thereafter.

Little Geek’s Reaction to Star Wars “Bomb” is Brilliant

Do you recall that moment when you found out that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker’s father? I sure do and I remember feeling a little bit queezy and terribly, terribly excited. This was the biggest bomb dropped in my lap since I found out that Santa was my mom and dad. In truth, a larger piece of me died the day I found out who Darth Vader really was vs. Santa being mom and dad down stairs. There are just some things in this world you should not know.

Game Time: Tacking the Past Family Movie Review

Do we go left or right? Pay off our car with some extra cash or take the family on a vacation? Do we chase fame and fortune or happiness and substance? What is important to us and why? Gather the family, pop some corn, and enjoy a family-friendly television movie about life, family, and football. Continue reading

I loved the original Star Trek like a hog loves mud and didn’t think I could love anything more until Star Trek: The Next Generation was released. Like the Grinch, my heart grew three sizes that day. We do not speak of Star Trek Voyager or Deep Space Nine in our household. They are dead to us. Continue reading
