Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 038 focuses on the Witches of Dathomir. They steer clear of Legends as they discuss how the witches were portrayed in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the novel Dark Disciple. They talk about their culture, compare them to the Sith and Jedi, and discuss their relationship with Palpatine. Pretty good episode.

Assembly of Geeks: Sorcerer’s Stone & Classic NES Madness covers the rush to buy the new NES console, they talk Big Bang Theory, the Han Solo movie, Doctor Strange, and some Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which leads to some Harry Potter discussion. Good episode.

Awards Chatter: Robert De Niro episode features a nice interview with the actor as they touch on a bunch of the movies that have stretched across his long career, his thoughts on comedies versus drama, how he ended up working with Scorsese and De Palma, some of the movies he’s had to pass on, and his thoughts on his latest movie The Comedian.

Movie Review: ‘Hacksaw Ridge’

November 27, 2016 at 3:44 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

To put it simply, Hacksaw Ridge is an outstanding film. Without question, it is on par with Saving Private Ryan. The movie tells the tale of a conscientious objector who refuses to carry a rifle but is determined to serve his country. From boot camp to the battlefield, it shows the rigors Desmond Doss went through and his amazing acts of courage. It’s a film that is touching as it not only shows the chaos and brutality of war, but the heroism and selflessness that can go with it.

While Hacksaw Ridge is a great movie, it is very different from Saving Private Ryan. First off, this movie focuses on only one battle, and it’s in the Pacific theater. It also differs in that the movie sets the stage before the war, showing Desmond as a child and then later on showing how he winds up in the military and his struggles through boot camp as a conscientious objector. Viewers get to see him fall in love, deal with his father, his faith and the horrors of war. The scope of the film provides a very nicely focused tale that encapsulates Desmond’s journey from child to war hero. Yet the real accomplishment is how the movie brings that tale to life.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Awards Chatter: Rob Reiner episode covers the role his father has played in his life, and how he got into acting and directing. Rob recounts some stories, touches on the films he’s made, and talks a little about his latest project LBJ. Great episode.

Awards Chatter: Jeff Bridges episode is an excellent interview covering how Jeff got into acting, touching on his various roles, his love for music, working on Hell or High Water, and why he’s still acting.

Beltway Banthas: Episode XVII starts with a little Saturday Night Live discussion before they bring on their guest Bobby Roberts for a full on politics discussion. They talk a little Star Wars, but it’s very heavy on the real world politics side of things. They go over the comparison of Dooku to Trump and Hilary to Palpatine, social media memes, and the article about rebellions are built on hope. It leads to some interesting discussions. Good episode.
