Charity, Charity…IS THAT A STARFIGHTER?!

July 22, 2014 at 4:53 pm | Posted in Charity, Episode VII, JJ Abrams, Movies, News, Star Wars, Star Wars News | Leave a comment

So in the latest Force For Change video, J.J. Abrams tries to get people to think of charity, but utterly fails by distracting everyone with the awesome visual of an extremely weathered starfighter that is not an X-wing. But hey, you could win a chance to be on set with that ship if you help out the charity. Anyways, check out the video and the uber cool starfighter.

Check out the extended trailer for Star Wars Rebels which shows off a little cameo by Obi-Wan Kenobi (and that does indeed sound like James Arnold Taylor).

Marvel vs Dark Horse: Omnibuses

July 17, 2014 at 12:01 am | Posted in Comic Books, Dark Horse, Marvel, Opinion, Star Wars | 1 Comment

a-long-time-ago-volume-1As a fan of the Dark Horse Comics omnibuses, I was a little surprised to see the price point on the newly announced Marvel Star Wars omnibus. A $125 is a big chunk of change when compared to the $25 price tags on Dark Horse’s omnibuses. Checking around on Amazon, it seems this is a normal MSRP for Marvel’s omnibus collections, though they typically get a discount that puts them at $85 to $90. That’s still pretty high in comparison to Dark Horse. So where does the extra cost come in?

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:Avoid Transformers & 250 Great Geek Moments” begins with a very odd discussion of the latest Transformer’s movie given that none of the hosts have seen it yet. Regardless, they discuss the reactions of critics and fans and lament the daunting runtime of the movie (a whopping 2 hours and 45 minutes). Afterwards they rundown the latest geek news including the appearance of the pilot episode of The Flash online, Pacific Rim 2, the Phineas & Ferb Star Wars episode trailer, and then dive into SFX magazine’s 250 greatest moments in sci-fi, fantasy and horror. Sadly a lot of the top ten is dominated by very recent films which seems like a poor way to form the list, but the hosts chime in with their picks and it makes for a good discussion.

Bombad Radio: Episode 155 has a bit of an intro with Jeremiah and Nick before going into an interview with actor Doug Jones. The Doug Jones interview is really good. He talks about working with Guillermo Del Toro, his roles in Hellboy, Hellboy II, Mimic, Pan’s Labyrinth, Falling Skies, Batman Returns, and Warriors of Virtue. As primarily a suit actor, he talks about how his background as a mime and listing himself as a contortionist has helped him get roles. However, the best parts are probably his impressions of Del Toro. It’s a very fun interview. Capping off the show is some more commentary from Jeremiah and Nick. Worth noting, the intro and extro audio quality isn’t the best but the interview portion is good, so you might want to skip ahead when listening. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
