Holding Out For A Solo

Star Wars Episode IX: Rise of the Skywalker spoiler warning.

While anti-heroes are all the rage, I must admit that I struggle with them. I love a darkish hero, but when it comes to a redeemed villain, I just don't know what to do with them. When Regina wanted to go good on Once Upon a Time, I was thrilled but also thought she didn't deserve to just start being happy after murdering so many people. I think the prison system we have is deeply flawed, so what do you do with that?

E.T. Xfinity Ad

Xennials are going gaga over the latest Xfinity ad, but I'm not so sure I like the whole modern take on E.T. For starters, it's definitely banking on our nostalgia, which isn't bad in and of itself: I love 80s culture used in modern media. What I don't love is how they reused every element from the original to make this ad without any real movement or meaning included in it. 

Castle Rock Blasts Us Back To The 80s

No, the second season of Castle Rock doesn't take place in the 80s like Stranger Things. In fact, it's pretty modern, complete with cell phones prominently featured in several scenes. But the 80s vibe we got from the small town from Stephen King's imagination is definitely there, but with a twist: Somali immigrants have found a haven in the cursed town. 

Best 80s Halloween Songs

Most of the best Halloween songs come from the 80s. There are a lot of great modern ones, too, especially Marilyn Manson's rendition of "This is Halloween," which is my favorite Halloween song, ever, but couldn't you argue that any of his songs could be played for Halloween? The same goes for much of the American Horror Story soundtrack, by the way--if you're looking for a LONG list of songs to fit your fall mood, that's a good one!

Stranger Things Season 4

Netflix has released a teeny, tiny teaser of Stranger Things season 4, and while it really doesn't show us much, it does confirm one thing: that we will have a fourth season! It also confirms something that the Duffer Brothers have been promising for years, that the show will venture out of Hawkins territory. We expected that to occur last season, and it sort of did with the food court, but not nearly as far as season four will likely go between wherever Eleven and Will move, not to mention Russia.
