Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: What’s Happening Podcast Update is kind of optional but does give listeners a heads up that things are changing. Scott and Matt talk about the new podcasts coming to the site and how things will be changing or staying the same.

Awards Chatter: Michael Keaton episode covers how he got into acting, his early roles, Beetlejuice, Batman and Birdman, and his latest film The Founder. Nice interview giving a peek inside Keaton’s head. Great one to check out.

Awards Chatter: Denzel Washington episode is a great one to check out. Denzel talks about his parents, his childhood, he brings up being friends with Ludacris’ dad, his work in theater, meeting Sidney Poitier, doing movies, boxing at Mickey Rourke’s gym, directing, his take on playing bad guys and his latest film Fences. When it comes to doing actor interviews, Scott Feinberg does an outstanding job. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Book Review: ‘Little Heaven’ by Nick Cutter

January 10, 2017 at 12:01 am | Posted in Books, horror, Reviews | Leave a comment

Nick Cutter is back and this action/adventure/horror novel is a delight to behold. Three mercenaries, monsters in the woods, the nostalgia of the 60’s and 80’s combined with a Stephen King vibe make this a great read. Click here to read our full review.

Ausfans Radio: Bonus Episode Rogus Spoilerus Maximus is a nice, casual, laid back conversation about Rogue One between Alan and guest Davis Grayson (Fandom Podcast Network). It’s also a shorter episode at just 22 minutes.

Ausfans Radio: Bonus Rogue One Spoiler Review gives a summary of the film and Alan’s opinions. This one is also a short episode at just 12 minutes.

Beltway Banthas: Episode 19 begins with guest Joseph Tavano as they talk about how Retrozap started, white supremacists boycotting Rogue One, Bob Iger joining an advisory committee for Donald Trump, Adam Driver’s comments on Kylo Ren being a terrorist, and comparing the First Order to real world entities. Then they talk with guest Brittany Hunter about the factions of the Rebellion in Rogue One as they look at American history with the likes of John Adams and Samuel Adams. They get into the middle east, terrorist groups, Arab Spring, the Death Star and different types of rebels. It’s a very intriguing conversation. Great stuff. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. Lots of Rogue One discussion episodes, some better than others.

Assembly of Geeks: Rogue One Reviews starts with some discussion on Gotham City Sirens and a Deadshot movie, then they move into their reviews of Rogue One with guest Dan Zehr (Coffee With Kenobi). While there’s no love for Bor Gullet or Saw, they do discuss the things they liked as well as the things they didn’t like, what they wanted, the CGI, possible plot holes and ranking it.

Bantha Fodder: Episode 15 is a Christmas special as they do their own version of “Twas A Night Before Christmas” but Rogue One themed. Worth a listen.

Bombad Radio: Episode 264 features James, Jeremiah, Jason and author Adam Bray as they talk Rogue One including expectations, the things they liked, disliked and listener feedback. Good episode. Note there’s more listener reviews at the end of the episode so when the main discussion ends and you hear someone else speaking, that’s what’s going on. It threw me off guard at first as I though maybe a different podcast had started playing, but it’s just a listener review. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blabba the Hutt: Episode 30 starts pre-Rogue One and without Kate as they talk in the pub before the movie, then it cuts to Jamie in the car on the ride home as he provides his reactions after having seen it twice. Spoiler free.

Blast Points: Episode 53 is their pre-Rogue One episode as they talk Beezer Fortuna, Wheezer, 8 foot tall Snoke puppet, the Rogue One red carpet premiere, Crystal Skull, Rogue One plans, and they ponder how intelligent the wampa on Hoth was. Nice episode with no spoilers.

Blast Points: Episode 54 kicks off with the jokes as they begin their Rogue One episode and the Star Wars love. They touch on the idea of Rogue One being the core of a new trilogy bookended by Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, they talk about how the film reflects the aesthetic shifts as it goes from a ROTS feel to ANH feel by the end of the film, they cover the music, a lot of scene-by-scene discussion, the locations, the characters, Vader becoming Dracula and much more. Lots of humor and lots of fun make this the best Rogue One discussion I’ve listened to so far. I making this one my pick of the week. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
