Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 64 kicks off with news, some The Last Jedi stuff, scene descriptions, and then they get to what may be the best Star Wars holiday of all, St. Panaka Day! They celebrate Captain Panaka like no other with all of his dialog from The Phantom Menace, rating each line on grumpiness which turns out to be really fun. They talk about the character, and even go into why he wasn’t in Attack of the Clones. Excellent episode.

Blast Points: Episode 65 is Jason and Gabe geeking out on Star Wars Rebels “Twin Suns.” This one is fun from the get go. They talk about how Obi-Wan knows Ezra’s name, the duel, how perfect Obi-Wan is, Luke being the chosen one, and the glimpse of Luke. Great episode.

Bombad Radio: What If with The Witcher features Jeremiah and Chris Cannon as they discuss the possibility of a movie of The Witcher with lots of fan casting. Should it be based off the books or the games, and who would play who? Good episode for fans of the series. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Book Review: ‘The Binding’ by Nicholas Wolff

Taking a new twist on zombie stories can be a bold move, and actually coming up with an idea that’s novel and interesting is no small feat. However, a great idea doesn’t always make for a good story if the author can’t pull it off. Click here to read our full review of The Binding.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 111 is hosted by Joe and special guest Tyler Westhause. They talk Star Wars Celebration, Drowning in Moonlight, there’s some movie discussion, some Star Wars Rebels and a bunch of other stuff, including JNCO jeans. Lots of fun as always.

Fauxthentic History: The Lost Culture of Alderaan covers what Alderaan was like, the planet’s geography, landmarks, how their society worked, their culture, wine, architecture, history, Bail and Leia’s roles, and what happened post-destruction. Very informative, they include info from the films and beyond.

Fauxthentic History: The Eugenics War goes over the origin of Khan, the super soldiers, the Chrysalis Project, and different versions of the history. It’s quite an elaborate backstory that I’ve never heard before, which makes me really curious where all these ideas were laid out and explored. I didn’t realize Khan’s history overlaps with our own history. Very enlightening. Note this episode was recorded live at SLCC, but it still has really good audio quality.

Movie Review: ‘Kong: Skull Island’

March 12, 2017 at 12:18 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

Kong: Skull Island is a fun movie. Not a great movie, but a fun one. It takes two fun elements and throws in some extras to make this a unique King Kong movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously and sets out for pure entertainment. I mean come on, you’ve got Samuel L. Jackson declaring war on Kong and John C. Reilly providing some hilarity. Action and humor combine together in this one to make it worth a watch.

The whole premise is kind of neat. It’s set right at the end of Vietnam with all the American forces being pulled out. John Goodman and Corey Hawkins play a pair of conspiracy theorists who are putting together an expedition to an unexplored island where they think there could be monsters. They recruit a military escort lead by Samuel L. Jackson who commands a company of helicopters. They also recruit an SAS operative played by Tom Hiddleston to serve as the tracker for their voyage. Along the way, they pick up a journalist played by Brie Larson and there’s some scientists filling out the cast. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Kong: Skull Island’…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Beltway Banthas: Episode 24 starts with current topics and news, then they discuss the Empire and like the bad guys with guests Andrea Letamendi and Tyler Westhause which leads to a very interesting discussion on what it is about the villains that interests us so much. Good episode.

Blast Points: Episode 63 starts with a little The Last Jedi┬ánews ala biohexacrypt, and they go over Star Wars Celebration announcements, guests and the UK’s Star Wars Fun Day with Bor Gullet. Then they go into Aftermath: Empire’s End with full spoilers. There’s an interesting take from Gabe on this one as he only read some of Aftermath and none of Life Debt, catching most of the major plot points via online breakdowns. Jason, on the other hand, read all three. They talk about Palpatine’s Plan B, a possible mention of Captain Phasma which I missed on my read through of the book, the Church of the Force interlude, Chewbacca’s interlude, Lando’s interlude, and going back to Jakku. They don’t spoil the entire book as they mostly touch on the interludes and even then, they don’t go into too much detail, so you could listen to this entire episode and still find lots of surprises in the book. They made a good observation about how having the recognizable film characters in such small roles, and the new characters in such large roles, can actually be a negative when the film characters are the more interesting ones. Overall, fantastic episode. Both informative and entertaining.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 110 kicks off with Blue Russians as they talk about Conty’s toy find, Twinkie ice cream, Mandalorian windows, the Auralnauts R2 video, Jedi cologne, Oppo molting, listener feedback, some need’em got’em, and more. Fun as always, but I think the Blue Russians and Oppo’s molting makes this one special. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
