Obi-Wan Kenobi. After Four Episodes, Is He Damaged Goods or Sadly Something Else?

Obi-Wan Kenobi

If I was “Forced” to watch only one series set in the Star Wars universe, it’s no doubt going to be Obi-Wan Kenobi. There’s plenty of past and present products to put on an infinite loop with the PVR, and it’s rare to find a work that successfully bridges the gap between various narratives and returns to the familiar. That is, the tales from this franchise follows a checklist of tropes to appease fans.

One of them means seeing this Jedi weld a lightsaber. But instead, this miniseries doesn’t make use of this weapon right away. It’s more like a classic Cowboys and Indians challenge for the first three episodes, at least. But when we’re dealing with a Jedi Master, he’ll be swinging that lightsaber in no time!

Ms. MarvelAvailable to View on Disney Plus
Spoiler Alert

How many Marvels exist in the MCU? With the release of Ms. Marvel on Disney Plus, it’s safe to say she’ll join the ranks of even more characters with Marvel as part of their name. That is, we’re expecting Marvel Girl aka Jean Grey to arrive next. But for now, a miniseries about a young Pakistani girl, Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), having a rough go at life at home and in school.

After the damage wrought in the past MCU films, nowhere is safe. In Jersey City, this youth is just living the typical life of being just another face. Her parents want her safe from this terror and will do anything to protect their little girl. Continue reading

Scrat Tales is Exactly What the Doctor, er Disney Ordered

Ice Age: Scrat Tales (TV Mini Series 2022– ) - IMDbAvailable to view on Disney Plus

An Ice Age movie or television series without Scrat is just not right. Disney thought they could get away with not bringing this beloved mascot back, and I’m glad they’ve released Scrat Tales, now available on Disney Plus. This series has six laugh-out-loud episodes which I’ll be regularly watching. 

This series was already in development before being acquired by the mouse and I love the classic Looney Tunes style shenanigans that make up this squirrel’s chase for the beloved nut. Scrat is now a dad, sort of. He’s found another of his kind, a younger version of himself, and they’re cute and evil towards one another. Sometimes they work together, and other times they are at each other’s throats like in Spy vs Spy.

Moon Knight Poster Released by Marvel and Disney+

Disney+
Debuting: March 30, 2022

Oscar Issac is not only the supervillain Apocalypse but also the masked superhero Moon Knight in two (finally united) Marvel Comics Cinematic Universe properties. Both have very loose Ancient Egyptian connections, and this actor is terrific at making us believe he has multiple personalities. Technically, his character has a dissociative identity disorder, and just how many he has would be telling.

In the first episode. Steven Grant isn’t sure about what’s going on with his life. He’s prone to black outs and has to live in seclusion because he fears something is out to get him–or rather, dreads what happens when he’s asleep. He works at the British Museum as a gift shop clerk. His mates at work don’t pay him any heed, and more often than not, step all over him.

When to Expect More Night at the Museum

17 Feb

Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian review | Den of GeekAnyone who loves the premise behind the 20th Century Fox’s Night at the Museum most likely knows about the upcoming animated sequel by the new franchise owners, Disney. Development may have stalled. The original news was revealed in 2020, during the pandemic, and reports back then suggested a 2021 release.

Hopefully plans have not been shelved. When considering other franchise properties recently released, namely Home Sweet Home Alone and Ice Age: Adventures of Buck Wild, hope is alive again, and it may show up later this year.

In the trilogy of live-action films, the Golden Tablet of Pharaoh Ahkmenrah is the raison d’être behind why many animals and statues came to life. Instead of dealing with a threat we’re all familiar with, the tentatively titled Kahmunrah Rises Again shifts the story to Nick Daley and how he’s going to continue in his father’s legacy of being a night custodian. Any other details are, pardoning the proverbial Ancient Egyptian pun, under wraps.
