Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 52 covers Rey and Jyn as they talk about the two characters, their importance, how they’re similar and how they’re different.

Blast Points: Episode 59 first touches on the news with Lando, whether Snoke could be the last Jedi, Wedge in Rogue One, and then they get to the really good stuff. The main discussion of this episode is the 1977 album Living in These Star Warz. They go through the album track-by-memorable-track and this thing is golden. There’s songs about Vader and his respirator, Chewie being a rookie Wookiee and even falling in love with a droid. It’s cheesy, it’s weird, and it’s amazing. This episode is my pick of the week.

Blast Points: Episode 60 starts with news and recent happenings as usual including some info on the upcoming Star Wars Rebels episodes. Then they get into the Valentine’s Day spirit with their favorite romantic lines and smooth talking from Anakin. Very fun episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

They go over the news of the Episode VIII title The Last Jedi, the latest news on the Lucas museum, and they go over mission reports with some excellent examples of the good they do.

  • StarWars.com dished out some info on the upcoming Rogue One novels. First up, Rebel Rising by Beth Revis (416 page hardcover, May 2, 2017).

When Jyn Erso was five years old, her mother was murdered and her father taken from her to serve the Empire. But despite the loss of her parents she is not completely alone—Saw Gerrera, a man willing to go to any extremes necessary in order to resist Imperial tyranny, takes her in as his own, and gives her not only a home but all the abilities and resources she needs to become a rebel herself.

 Jyn dedicates herself to the cause—and the man. But fighting alongside Saw and his people brings with it danger and the question of just how far Jyn is willing to go as one of Saw’s soldiers. When she faces an unthinkable betrayal that shatters her world, Jyn will have to pull the pieces of herself back together and figure out what she truly believes in…and who she can really trust.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Awards Chatter: Viggo Mortensen interview is a good one. Viggo talks about his parents, his childhood, being born in Manhattan but raised in Argentina, returning to America, the influence of his mother’s love in movies, how he eventually got into acting, his early roles and missed opportunities like Platoon, and of course filming Lord of the Rings. They also cover his latest film Captain Fantastic. Great interview and one you don’t want to miss.

Awards Chatter: Ryan Reynolds interview is pretty neat as it details the long journey that eventually led to the Deadpool movie. He talks about going from Canada and kid’s soap operas to Hollywood and films. I had no idea how deeply invested Ryan was in the idea of a Deadpool movie, nor did I realize that he wrote the script and had shopped it around for years in trying to get the film made. If you’re a Deadpool fan, you’ll definitely want to check this one out. And even if you’re not, Ryan talks about the various films he’s worked on, going from smaller films to big films, and what happened with Green Lantern.

Beltway Banthas: Episode 21 dives into politics with cabinet news, Mark Hamill reading Trump quotes in Joker voice, and they’re joined by guest Dennis Keithly from Starships Sabers and Scoundrels as they discuss the Separatists. The audio is a little tinny in this episode but the discussion on the Separatists is pretty good. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
