Adaptations are hard to do well, especially when you’re trying to balance creating something new while preserving the old. Which of these shows managed it?
…Recommends Movies and TV (Condorman, Enemy Mine, Good Omens, Avenue 5, and more)

A lot of movies have come out this summer. Which have I seen, and which do I recommend?
…About Spider-Man (Ranking the Movies)
Spider-Man has always been the victim of executive meddling, whether in the comics or cartoons or cinema. Here are my feelings about the franchise and my rankings of the Spider-Man movies to date.
…About the X-Men Movies
The X-Men movie franchise has had it’s ups and downs, but I really feel it deserves more appreciation than it gets, especially now.
…Recommends Movies (Aladdin, Detective Pikachu)
This is the first installment of my “Movie Recommendations” feature. I won’t be reviewing movies or criticizing them, just telling you whether or not I recommend seeing them.
…About Live-Action Disney Remakes
A lot of people have a cynical attitude about Disney remaking their older animated movies in live-action. It’s really just part of the larger cynical attitude against remakes in general. I give my thoughts about them in this episode.
…About Star Wars Episode IX
This is a podcast not about how *good* each of the Star Wars movies are or even about how much I personally like them, but about how excited I’ve been for each of them…and why the movie I’m least excited to see is “The Rise of Skywalker”.
…About Disney Owning Fox
There are a lot of reasons to be concerned about Disney’s recent acquisition of 20th Century Fox. But, there are reasons to be hopeful, as well.
