Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Star Wars Celebration: Revenge of the Sith 3D episode is hosted by Jeremiah and Jason as Jason talks about seeing Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith in 3D at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. He compares the 3D quality of all three prequel films, summarizes Dennis Muren’s comments on doing the 3D effects for ROTS, and they talk about the screenings in general. Kind of a neat inside look since I haven’t seen any of the films in 3D. Interesting to hear how far ROTS has come with the latest 3D effects.

Brews and Blasters: Episode #20 features special guest Riley Blanton (Star Wars Report) and is hosted by Joe Tavano. The episode starts out with a little coffee discussion before the meander into some Star Wars and then dig into the Vanity Fair The Force Awakens article. At the end, they do a quick review of Age of Ultron and talk about Whedon’s rift with Marvel. It’s a very casual episode and there are some technical difficulties, but you might want to check it out.

Cloud City Casino: Episode 002 features guest Mark Hurliman as they talk about Celebration. Though, to be honest, it’s mostly Mark talking. Michael gives Mark plenty of room to cover his trip to Disneyland and Celebration with the family, sharing the trial and tribulations, as well as the awesome moments. It’s a fun episode with good audio quality and a great guest making it worth checking out. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
