“Guardians of the Galaxy” – Review

So with the release of The Short Box podcast’s latest episode (Ep.60 The Busiest Man in Jacksonville) you may have noticed a much shorter review of the latest but already debatable best Marvel movie, Guardians of The Galaxy. We thought we would save our usual banter to give all dedicated attention to the episode guest, Al Letson, after all he had one helluva’ project to promote. Nonetheless we left it up to our best articulated co-host, Adam Wollet, to speak for the rest of the crew when it comes to expressing our absolute enjoyment for GOTG. Don’t forget to check out our latest episode and previous ones from the official website: www.shortboxjax.com and like us on Facebook to stay up-to-date with pictures, links, and posts from the crew. We sincerely hope you enjoy this post, we have more planned in the near future!

A Timeless Tale of Star-crossed Love and… Drugs?

The cover art for Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever #1

Love it, hate it, or could care less, the original 1960’s “Star Trek” series was without a doubt, a very compelling concept that was far ahead of its time and has since captured the imaginations of generations. Even if you’re not a fan, there are a handful of episodes of every Trek series that are so good that they transcend the science fiction genre and enter the realm of timeless stories that will probably be studied by college students of the 23rd century.

“City on the Edge of Forever” was one such episode.

Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy” hits theaters this August, but just like the characters in the trailer, you may be asking yourselves: “Who?”
