New Release: ‘Last Shot’ by Daniel José Older

Last Shot by Daniel José Older is out today in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.

Even the fastest ship in the galaxy can’t outrun the past. . . .

THEN:

It’s one of the galaxy’s most dangerous secrets: a mysterious transmitter with unknown power and a reward for its discovery that most could only dream of claiming. But those who fly the Millennium Falcon throughout its infamous history aren’t your average scoundrels. Not once, but twice, the crew of the Falcon tries to claim the elusive prize—first, Lando Calrissian and the droid L3-37 at the dawn of an ambitious career, and later, a young and hungry Han Solo with the help of his copilot, Chewbacca. But the device’s creator, the volatile criminal Fyzen Gor, isn’t interested in sharing. And Gor knows how to hold a grudge. . . .

NOW:

It’s been ten years since the rebel hero Han Solo last encountered Fyzen Gor. After mounting a successful rebellion against the Empire and starting a family with an Alderaanian princess, Han hasn’t given much thought to the mad inventor. But when Lando turns up at Han’s doorstep in the middle of the night, it’s Fyzen’s assassins that he’s running from. And without Han’s help, Lando—and all life on Cloud City—will be annihilated.

With the assistance of a young hotshot pilot, an Ewok slicer prodigy, the woman who might be the love of Lando’s life, and Han’s best and furriest friend, the two most notorious scoundrels in the New Republic are working together once more. They’ll have to journey across the stars—and into the past—before Gor uses the device’s power to reshape the galaxy.

Movie Review: ‘Chappaquiddick’

April 13, 2018 at 12:05 am | Posted in Movies, Reviews | 1 Comment

First off, Chappaquiddick isn’t for everyone. This is a political drama about Ted Kennedy’s automotive accident on Chappaquiddick Island that lead to the death of Mary Jo Kopechne. It’s a story that’s complicated in large part to the way the incident was handled. The movie does a good job of covering the incident, the key players, and providing a rather level headed account of what did and might have happened. In the end, it doesn’t answer all of the questions, but on the other hand, that’s kind of the point. It provides you with enough information to get you wondering about what happened and how it was handled. Was Ted in the right or the wrong? Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Chappaquiddick’…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 116 they talk about getting The Last Jedi on Blu-ray, the experience of watching it at home, they go over the documentary The Director and The Jedi, the deleted scenes and they touch on some of the other extras included. Now I specifically waited until after I watched all the extras before listening to this episode, but in retrospect, that’s really not necessary. Either way, you’ll enjoy this episode, assuming you like movie of course.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 1 hour 17 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Jason, and Gabe, Rating: Great

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 118 they go over the Solo trailer. This is a nice breakdown that keeps it fun as they touch on all the cool stuff revealed.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 53 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Jason, and Gabe, Rating: Great

Brews and Blasters: Episode 163 covers Mr. Miagi, vodka, the HasLab sail barge getting backed and what might be next, the Solo Denny’s commercial, aliens in the Solo cantina, Topps cards, Therm Scissorpunch, lobster recipes, Gamorrean guard figures, and Simon Pegg on changes in Episode VIII. This was definitely the funniest episode I listed to this week. Loved it.

Podcast Network: RetrozapRuntime: 1 hour 34 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Joe, and Chris, Rating: Great Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
