Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: “Reviewing Geek TV Shows” is a geek roundtable episode with guests Kay (FANgirl Blog), Emily (Wrong Button Blog) and Cory (Coffee with Kenobi). This episode includes lots of geek questions and discussions, some negativity on Gotham, thoughts and criticism on the new video game Destiny, and thoughts on geek tv shows and movies, especially Marvel and DC. Good episode overall.

Harry Potter and the Targets of Boba Fett” starts out with a Harry Potter discussion since Scott is watching all the films as they’re being screened at a local theater. They also talk some The Dark Crystal with their special co-host in this episode, Charli Armstrong (who fills in for Tricia). Then they head into an Indiana Jones discussion and the possibility and rumors of an Indy 5. Later they’re joined by Dan Zehr as they talk about Star Wars Rebels.

Bombad Radio: October Free-For-All episode includes host James, and guests Scott Murray and Steve Crellin. As usual in the free-for-all, they cover a lot of topics, but this time around Star Wars stays their main focus. From Christopher Walken going to the dark side to Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars Episode VII (include a potential major spoiler which I fast forwarded through). They also go over Gotham and share their thoughts on the series and where it needs to go to maintain interest.

Movie Review: ‘Fury’

October 17, 2014 at 7:15 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

fury_posterFury is an emotional, gripping experience. This isn’t simply a tank movie, it’s a visceral tale of heroism, brutality and survival. Fury touches on aspects that few war films have been able to achieve. By following the crew of a Sherman tank, viewers are thrown into a very personal story of five soldiers at the end of a long, trying war. Four of those soldiers are hardened veterans. They’ve seen the horrors of the war and have made it past death’s clutches. They know the depths with which people will steep to, what humankind is capable of, and how fickle fate can be with people’s lives. Set in April of 1945, they’re roughly a month away from the war’s end, but as the poster says, “war never ends quietly.” Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Fury’…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: September Episode includes the latest troop reports, a short clip with Mary Franklin, discussion of Star Wars Celebration Anaheim (mostly anxious anticipation as there isn’t too much news yet), a cool story about one trooper saving a person’s life, and even tips on how to throw a baseball as Darth Vader (or how not to, at least). Fun episode and the only place you’ll find news and coverage of the 501st Legion.

Assembly of Geeks:Reviewing Rebels & Remembering Henson” episode brings about a collection of Muppets topics as they cover their favorite Muppet songs and more. Tricia also talks about the Star Wars Rebels “Spark of Rebellion” screening, her feelings on the characters and the show overall. Good episode and worth a listen.

Bombad Radio: Episode 170 features their interview with Sean McKeever. Sean has worked on comics and videogames and is currently one of the writers for Star Wars: The Old Republic. He talks about what work he’s done on the game, how he ended up at Bioware, the differences between writing for comics and videogames, and his thoughts on all the different comic publishers he’s worked for. I hadn’t heard of Sean before but he turned out to be a really interesting guest. I liked his comments on comics and the comparisons to the video game industry, plus getting to hear what his contributions were (and are) for SWTOR.

The Black Series: Prototype Armor Boba Fett

October 14, 2014 at 12:01 am | Posted in Collecting, Reviews, Star Wars, Toys | Leave a comment

The Black Series Prototype Armor Boba Fett is a Walgreens exclusive. Based on the existing six inch Boba Fett but with white armor, I thought this was a figure I could pass on. However, upon seeing it on the pegs, I couldn’t resist and had to have it. Below you’ll find my review of the figure with lots of pics.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 169 is a double interview with voice actresses Belinda Cornish and Alix Wilton Regan. They talk Mass Effect, Dragon Age, voice acting and working with video game projects. Both are good interviews and entertaining guests which makes for a fun discussion. Plus I like the new outro music. Very nice.

Disney Vault Talk: Make Mine Music episode starts out with a lot of listener feedback, their challenge to RebelForce Radio as they throw down the gauntlet to do a Rebels spinoff show, and their “Disney Watch” segment covering various Disney news items. The focus of this weeks episode is the Disney film Make Mine Music which turns out to be a pretty fast discussion as they quickly go through the history and fun facts for the movie and then plow through each of the shorts that comprise the film. I’ve never seen this particular movie, but I have seen a couple of the shorts that are in it. Afterwards they do some post-show Disney trivia.

Full of Sith: Episode LXXXIV includes discussion on the Star Wars: The Clone Wars pre-viz content recently released on StarWars.com. They also talk about Star Wars Rebels “Spark of Rebellion”. There’s some small spoilers but nothing too major. Guests include Riley and Bethany from the Star Wars Report. Interesting episode as I haven’t had a chance to check out the pre-viz arc for TCW, but after hearing their discussion of it, I’m now very intrigued to check it out.

Comic Review: ‘Aliens vs. Predator: Fire and Stone #1′

Tags: ,

Aliens vs. Predator: Fire and Stone #1 takes a bold move by jumping ahead of all the other storylines to plunge readers deep into the action. At this point everyone is at war: the humans, the androids, the xenomorphs, and the predators. We don’t know how it all happened, but there are clues and glimpses. Still, even with all the confusion, the story is intriguing and packs in a lot of great artwork. Click here to check out our full review.
