Movie Review: ‘Lights Out’

Lights_Out_2016_posterKeep the lights OUT!

The story behind Lights Out’s production and release is one of excitement and wonder. The concept was created by the movie’s first time director, David Sandberg, as an entry into a short horror film competition. The short film won the competition, and it was eventually recognized by a modern horror guru, James Wan (Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring) and the rest of Hollywood. A movie deal was made, and now here we are. As an aspiring film student, Sandberg being recognized and plucked from obscurity to direct this feature based on his own story is definitely heartwarming. And not only does Sandberg prove to be a master of horror is in his right with Lights Out, but he proves to be a very skilled and nuanced story teller.

Since the female-driven reboot of the popular and classic Ghostbuster franchise was announced back in August of 2014, it has been the subject of intense criticism and excitement. While some of the criticism fell on the necessity of the reboot – since the classic is pretty much a beloved Hollywood film – many of the criticism, unfortunately, was thinly veiled sexism over the female cast. Fans fought back and forth over the issue for months, and the early promotional material for the film did nothing to satisfy either side of the argument. Well now the moment of truth is here, with the movie being released today. Were the naysayers right in their quest to lament about the movie every chance they got? Was the reboot even necessary? Simply, was the movie even good? Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Ghostbusters’…

Well, this is sure to be a pleasant wake up call brought to us by Lucasfilm. Airing during Good Morning America this morning, the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer trailer has finally graced us with its presence. And what an exciting trailer it is. The trailer spends most of its time introducing us to Felicity Jones’ Rebel fighter Jyn Erso and her allies and enemies, with even a cameo from an Original Trilogy character! Surely this’ll be a fun ride in cinemas come December.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review with quite a few Star Wars authors for your listening enjoyment.

Bombad Radio: Episode 207 features an interview with Shannon Eric Denton as they talk comics, Airwolf and Star Wars. Eric has a pretty interesting story as he moved from being a comic artist, to an artist for animated shows, to being a writer. He’s a good guest and it’s a fun conversation. Worth checking out.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode 43 is their pre-Force Friday show with some discussion on their collecting trips for Disney Infinity 3.0 figures. Their guests for this episode are Mike and Joao from The Cantina Cast as they dive into some meaty topics like Yoda, Obi-Wan, the chosen one prophecy and more. It’s an interesting discussion episode and good for any general Star Wars fan.

Fly Casual: Episode 55 is a news and rumors episode as they cover Star Wars #8, Kanan #5 and Lando #3. Then they head into Rogue One rumors, Kylo Ren rumors, a discussion on the length of the movie and whether one of the big 3 will die and which one. Overall, good show with the usual mix of humor, Star Wars geekdom and unpredictability. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

‘Aftermath’ Excerpt

July 16, 2015 at 5:03 pm | Posted in Miscellaneous | Leave a comment

EW.com has posted an excerpt for the upcoming Star Wars novel Aftermath.

Today is a day of celebration. We have triumphed over villainy and oppression and have given our Alliance—and the galaxy beyond it—a chance to breathe and cheer for the progress in reclaiming our freedom from an Empire that robbed us of it. We have reports from Commander Skywalker that Emperor Palpatine is dead, and his enforcer, Darth Vader, with him.

But though we may celebrate, we should not consider this our time to rest. We struck a major blow against the Empire, and now will be the time to seize on the opening we have created. The Empire’s weapon may be destroyed, but the Empire itself lives on…

Click here to read the entire excerpt.

Aftermath is written by Chuck Wendig and will be out September 4th, however preorders are already up for those interested.
