I saw Thor: Ragnarok a couple of days ago, so I thought I’d do a quick and dirty write-up. It will contain spoilers for anyone who hasn’t seen the trailers.

Travis discusses the recent comic book The Rift, a time travel story not unlike Quantum Leap, with an interesting story and decent art.
Two shows, two premieres: THE ORVILLE and STAR TREK: DISCOVERY. So which one is the better STAR TREK?

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 may be the most eagerly-awaited sequel outside the Star Wars brand, and James Gunn has delivered a winner. Some online critics feel that it doesn’t live up to the first, but I believe they are confused by the fact that the first one was an unexpected surprise they didn’t know they wanted, and this one is an eagerly anticipated treat that they are pumping up high expectations for. Since that joy of discovery is replaced by expectation, which can’t really compare, they are feeling a self-inflicted disappointment that is unwarranted. I loved it. Gunn still has some tricks up his sleeve.
