  • Some Of My Favorite Shows Are On Apple TV+

    Apple TV+ is somewhat of a latecomer to the streaming wars but if there's anything that Apple is truly good at, it's taking good stuff in the marketplace and making it better. Ok, so that's not a perfect analogy but when I first heard about Apple TV+ I thought it was going to be some meaningless "me too" type offering but they have done a shockingly good job at building out a robust lineup that has some of my absolute favorite shows. 

  • Top 10 Destinations for Comic Book Lovers

    For many of us, our love of comic books began in childhood. Whether we were inspired by the daring adventures of Spiderman or the mysterious world of Batman, there was something about these stories that captured our imaginations and inspired us to dream.

  • A Perfect Vintage Explores What Made 2013 Napa Valley A Perfect Year For Wine Growers

    One of the more complex and misunderstood aspects of why certain wines are revered as works of art while others sit on a spectrum from very good to god awful is that no matter how talented the winemaker may be, Mother Nature is ultimately in control. While you can select locations for grape growing that will produce various subtle notes, you aren't always guaranteed to get the perfect product. In 2013, Napa Valley's conditions were as close to this as we've seen and this new production by Vision Films helps to tell that story.

  • The Last Duel Review

    The Last Duel is a thoughtful, complicated story about one of the last sanctioned trials by combat, that hits hard with poignant commentary when it is at its best, but is a boring, poorly paced slog when at its worst. 

  • Far Cry 6 Offers Everything You Expect And Welcome Innovations Too

    Each time there is a new Far Cry game released, there's one thing for sure... you're going to experience one of the most detailed outdoor environment action shooters that modern gaming hardware can deliver. That's true this time but the developers seem to have focused as much on innovation with tweaks that make the game that much better as much as they did with simply pushing the graphics to the point where it will consume every resource possible - even on today's top gaming machines.

  • Make The Hollywood Award Shows More Interesting By Trying Hollywood Stock Exchange

    We all know how addictive video games can be, and how mind-numbing they are at times too. However, sometimes it is nice to get into something that exercises our minds, gives us some amount of useful skill, and a little rush of success all at the same time. Welcome to the Hollywood Stock Exchange, let’s play!

  • Sports Are Back Here’s How To Catch All The Games Live with Cox

    At this point in the year I would normally be sitting in my seats at Petco Park cheering on my Padres but … these are unique times. While the first half of the year was dominated by cancelations and questions about if we’d ever have a chance to watch our favorite athletes this year, right now is an exciting time for sports fans. That is assuming of course that you have good high-speed internet and cable so you can watch the games live!

  • Four Ways To Celebrate the Fun of Comic-Con Virtually

    As a San Diegan, I oscillate between dreading the week each summer when Comic-Con dominates our lives and being overwhelmed with excitement to see friends, learn about new movies, games, and other cool stuff that comes out this week including parties! Sadly though, this year is not like others and people are forced to stay at home. Don’t worry though, we’ve got some great ways for you to still celebrate the fun and excitement virtually.

  • Why Cable TV Is So Important to Stay Informed and Connected

    This post idea started out last fall with a realization that after canceling cable TV service to save money that I was now spending just as much on streaming services after I added everything up. Now though, things have changed. That point is still strong but so is the case for reliability and the importance of local news. In a crisis like we are currently in the middle of, those points supersede just cost as two of my biggest concerns.

  • Roots Rocker Hamish Anderson Shares His Love Of Los Angeles

  • Avengers: Endgame - Marvel Nails the Landing

    It’s almost hard to remember back to 2008 and Robert Downey Jr’s introduction as the now-classic iteration of Tony Stark, followed shortly after by Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, but here we are, almost 11 years later, and the saga of The Avengers has its final chapter.  For now, of course. But what we have is a highly entertaining, action-packed, appropriately sweet and sentimental end for these actors in those roles that is fairly certain to satisfy everyone who has remained a fan of the series.

  • Captain Marvel Review

    Captain Marvel is a good film for kids, with positive messages for them about not giving up, and plenty of action to keep them entertained.  For adults? It’s fun, and it’s not awful. But it’s not especially good, either. Captain Marvel hits and misses with the comedy, and doesn’t have much meat to its story, so it really just ends up as a passable actioner that sorta coasts on inertia.

  • Miscreated Is The Survival Game We've Been Waiting For

    I'll admit - I'm rediscovering video games again after having taken a break for a number of years. However, I'm very excited with what I've been able to find and Miscreated is one of the highlights that I've enjoyed dumping hours of time into over the past couple weeks. It's a survival game that actually isn't "new" but has just released it's 1.0 beta version on Steam this month. Prior to that it was available to fans through the "Early Access" program. With an absolutely stunning environment to explore, resource monitoring, base building, and crafting Miscreated represents one of the most impressive gaming experiences that I've had in more than 10 years.

  • Not Just For Kids! Video Games That Adult Men Love Playing Too

    I'm going through a sort of "re discovery" of games, back in the day, I was a HUGE gamer. Virtually anything new that came out ended up on my computer and I had multiple video game systems at home as well. Somewhere along the line though that all faded and video games became something that was a passtime for the "younger me". Today though, I feel like games have matured quite a bit and I'm starting to have more time now to revisit this passtime and enjoy games again in a new way. As I've began exploring again, here's some of the ones that I'm looking forward to spending more time with in 2019!

  • How to Wrap Your Dinosaur

    As adults, when it comes to the holidays the sense of magic and wonder we had as kids is often forgotten or ignored. It is our role now to make sure that kids, friends, and those around us can still enjoy not just the experience of receiving – but also the experience of waiting. This means that it is more than simply buying something from the store and throwing it into a box. Instead, you need to think about how you are going to wrap it and get a bit creative.
  • Interview with Judd Lormand of CBS's SEAL Team

    It's hard to imagine a more hard core job than being a US Navy SEAL. These are the guys we call on to do the impossible and if they do it right, we'll never even know what they did. SEAL Team, staring Judd Lormand and a cast of other bad-ass dudes (and ladies) is one of the hottest shows on CBS TV right now. The show follows the team as they train, fight, and execute high-stakes covert missions around the world.
