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’…

‘Tarkin’ Excerpt #2

Star Wars Books has posted a new excerpt for James Luceno’s Tarkin.

Tarkin shook his head in aggravation. In part, the deep-space mobile battle station was meant to put an end to harassments of any sort, whether driven by greed, political dissent, or revenge for acts committed during the Clone Wars or since. Once everyone in the galaxy grasped the weapon’s capabilities, once the fear of Imperial reprisal took hold, discontent would cease to be a problem.

But just now—and notwithstanding the covert nature of the Geonosis project—the Imperial Security Bureau and Naval Intelligence were continually trying to quash rumors and prevent information leaks. In the three years Tarkin had been commanding Sentinel and hundreds of nearby supply and sentry outposts, as well as administering a vast slice of the Outer Rim, no group had been successful in penetrating Geonosis space.

The chance that that could change shook him to the core.

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.
