TV review: Star Trek returns to small screen with new series, ‘Discovery’ – The ESO Broadcasting Network

After an absence of more than a decade, Star Trek is returning to the small screen…well, sort of. Although CBS has launched a new series in the long-running science fiction franchise — titled “Star Trek: Discovery” — the series is only available on the network’s new streaming service, CBS All Access. CBS is offering a free trial period to entice fans to its new service, and I took advantage of this to watch the first three episodes of “Discovery.” I definitely have opinions about how CBS has decided to market and release this show, but first let’s take a look […]

Flashback review: ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ (2015) – The ESO Broadcasting Network

“Kingsman: The Secret Service” (2015) is one of those love it or hate it movies — you’ll know within a few minutes whether it’s a movie for you. The British action-comedy both celebrates and sends-up spy movie tropes, with lots of wacky, over-the-top action sequences and gadgets, as well as Samuel L. Jackson as a decidedly unique villain. In the middle of it all, Colin Firth maintains his classic, debonair poise as a spy who serves as a mentor to a young man with a chip on his shoulder but lots of promise (Taron Egerton). Although I sadly missed the […]

TV review: Thoughts on the complete season of Marvel’s ‘The Defenders’ – The ESO Broadcasting Network

The Marvel/Netflix partnership has, so far, been a winning one. With only one real miss (sorry, “Iron First”), the hype was definitely high when Marvel and Netflix announced a team-up series featuring characters from all the individual superhero shows.

Although I posted my thoughts when I was about halfway through the series, I wanted to circle back around now that I’ve finished all the episodes, for a final verdict. As much fun as it was to see all the […]

Blockbuster report: Summer 2017 in review – The ESO Broadcasting Network

It’s hard to believe that another summer movie season has already come and gone! Not surprisingly, the big winners this year were superhero films. “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” “Wonder Woman,” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming” all enjoyed big opening weekends. Although people continue to speculate when the superhero bubble might burst, the demand for these movies continues to be strong. Of course, it will be interesting to see what happens to the genre after Marvel wraps up the Infinity War storyline and “Justice League” succeeds or flops this fall, but expect superhero films to keep doing big business for at […]
