Entertainment Link-Off: Over the Wall

caity lotzThe weekend is finally here! Time to sit back and check out the new releases like Dirty Grandpa or The 5th Wave in cinemas. Based on the reviews though, perhaps Netflix and chill doesn’t seem so bad now. Anyway, Legends of Tomorrow premiered earlier this week on The CW and the show is off to a solid start. Heck, just seeing Caity Lotz on the screen is totally worth devoting my time to the show. 

After the jump, Avatar 2 is no long battling Star Wars for the box office crown, Oscars shake-up is on its way due to some recent controversy, Kylo Ren goes undercover, the return of Key and Peele and Happy Australia Day from Deadpool! Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: The Force is Here!

Daisy-Ridley-SWTFA-Euro-PremiereSteve and I will likely go into more detail in a possible upcoming podcast but I’ll share my quick thoughts on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Overall, it was a good flick. While it doesn’t quite match the highs of the original trilogy, it is still miles ahead of the prequels. At times it feels like a quasi-rehash of A New Hope but the new characters are compelling and I’m definitely excited to see where the new journey will lead to. Anyway, the notable star of the flick is Daisy Ridley as Rey, so let’s kick off the ELO with her at the European premiere of the film.

After the jump, quick look at the new Ghostbusters, more Star Wars tidbits, trailers for a lot of sequels next year and watch Spider-Man take on Darth Maul in a death battle. Continue reading
