May The 4th Be With You: ALL ‘Star Wars’ Films Ranked! What’s Number One?

May 4th, 2020

Star Wars is the most popular space saga and most exciting adventure film franchise in the world. It captured the hearts and minds of all ages and created an entire community of its own. And, since partnering with Disney, the force and its popularity has grown and become an even hotter brand. I admittedly can’t call myself a major Star Wars geek but I do admire the films and their rock star entertainment value. I love getting lost in their world and as today is Star Wars Day, I put on the Disney +documentary Empire of Dreams (highly recommended) and decided to rank the existing 11 films.

Khalil Antonio, a.k.a. “you know, Khalil, from Circa,” ate donuts live on Facebook Monday night.

Thoughts On A Blacked-Out National Theatre Day

March 28th, 2020

It was our job to do the show as planned, and let the 30, 40 people that were there get away from... Read More

That the REAL winner of the Iowa caucuses is … None other than… CHICKENZILLA. That’s right. Chickenzilla. That half-chicken, half-dinosaur bird of... Read More
