Vader Unleashed: The Final Scene From Rogue One!!!

A bonus “My Favorite Scene” this week as I try to catch up on the backlog of posts, and because Disney has apparently stopped trying to play whack-a-mole with the army of determined Star Wars fans trying to put this scene up on the Internet.  If you have yet to see Rogue One….well, then we here have no pity for you, this scene alone was worth the price of multiple admissions.  In Rogue One, more than in any SW film, we got to see Vader in the suit in his prime, and the result was both horrifying and awesome.

Doctor Strange Blu Ray Release Date and Special Features!!!

Doctor Strange, Stephen Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch

Doctor Strange was one of the roughly seventy blockbusters Disney released last year, continuing the most successful movie franchise of all-time with MCU installment #14, and introducing a very powerful new character into the mix.  Benedict Cumberbatch will be reprising the good Doctor in November’s Thor: Ragnarok, but you can get your Strange fix in February when the Blu Ray releases with a mess o’ special features (The one I most want to see is the continuing adventures of Thor and Kevin in Australia).  Read below for Coming Soon’s detailing of what goodness awaits those who journey within the mystic blu ray box.

Trailer Time: Sherlock Season 4 Trailer#2 (BBC – 2017)

Sherlock Season 4 will premiere on the BBC January 1, 2017, with the first new episode since the 2015 Christmas Special.  The season premiere, entitled “The Six Thatchers”, is almost certainly a play on the original Conan Doyle story “The Six Napoleons” and will find Dr. Watson and his wife preparing for the arrival of their first child (and undoubtedly Sherlock trying to find some way to cope with that).  The fourth season will, as its predecessors, have three feature-length episodes, and will be available on Blu Ray January 24, 2017.  It’s so long between visits, but it’s always worth catching up with Holmes and Watson again.
