Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Kid Friendly Deadpool & Legendary Hawkgirl covers the passing of Alan Rickman, one parent’s crusade to tame Deadpool, and a nice interview with the actress who is playing Hawkgirl in Legends of Tomorrow.

Brews and Blasters: Episode #52 brings up an interesting question – when is The Force Awakens leaving IMAX? They also talk about toy collecting, maps, wild fan theories, they share some Natalie Portman stories, and it’s another wide ranging, free flowing discussion revolving around Star Wars. Fun episode.

Collectors Cast: Episode 59 includes coverage of Farthest From 10 as Mark talks with Richard Hutchinson about it. Then Mark and James talk about the Rey/Monopoly/Hasbro issue with some surprising defense for Hasbro. They also stick up for the Academy Awards and the show wraps up with a nice chat with Steve Sansweet. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Movie Review: ’13 Hours’

January 25, 2016 at 12:00 am | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is a film I didn’t plan on seeing, but I’m glad I did. While there is a lot of deep undertones to the story and the political turmoil, 13 Hours doesn’t play out as a slap in the face to politics. Instead, it’s an intense war movie with likeable characters. It takes the time to develop the soldiers in the story, to allow viewers to bond with them, then it throws them into hell. Michael Bay might get a lot of flack for the Transformers franchise, but 13 Hours shows he’s a talented director who can do a compelling story and still has a couple surprises up his sleeve.

The movie focuses on the CIA contractors stationed at the secret CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya. Along with the diplomatic outpost there where Ambassador Chris Stevens was staying, both locations come under attack and it turns into a gripping tale of rescue and survival. There are lots of humanizing elements that bring the CIA contractors to life. You get a chance to bond with them which makes it even more tense and painful when their lives are put on the line. The actors do a great job of slipping into their roles and their characters. There’s no wooden acting. Michael Bay also does a great job of transitioning to character moments, storybuiling moments as the tension ramps up, and all out action as the firefights break out. It keeps you locked into the film from beginning to end. Continue Reading Movie Review: ’13 Hours’…
