Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

30 Minutes of Diabolical: Vol 3 | Session 6 is fully devoted to Boba Fett. They covering everything from a full ordinance rundown to elements of old Expanded Universe history. They talk about his first appearance in a parade, his deeds at Jabba’s palace, his fate in the sarlacc, and they steer clear of the prequels. I had two big gripes with the episode. First up, during the weapons segment, they had some really loud background music which made it hard to hear the two male hosts. My second gripe is that one of the hosts said “brother” a lot. And I mean a lot. Seriously, one out of three sentences included “brother”. Now I’m not sure if it was a gimmick or not, but I did try out another episode and the host did not say “brother” once, so if it was a gimmick, it did not work at all. If you’re a hardcore Fett fan, though, you might want to check this one out.

30 Minutes of Diabolical: Vol 2 | Session 29 focuses on the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Note this episode took play in December prior to The Force Awakens‘ release. They talk about the First Order 6″ Black Series figure, the Fargo TV series, then head in the EU. They cover Exar Kun, HK-47, Jaxxon, Thrawn, Mara Jade, the low points of the EU, and a lot of Shadows of the Empire. Kind of a fun trip down memory lane with the SWEU. This episode was a lot more enjoyable than the Boba Fett episode. The podcast doesn’t focus on Star Wars, so you’ll have to search for more Star Wars episodes, but it might be worth checking out.

Assembly of Geeks: Batman vs. Superman Round Table features a really nice round table discussion with guests Dan Z. (Coffee With Kenobi), Jeremiah (Bombad Radio), and Matt Moore (Comic Book Noob, Comics With Kenobi). They join Scott, Jeff and Amy as they talk about the movie, what they liked, didn’t like, and hope to see in the future. Excellent discussion and a close contender for pick of the week. If you’ve seen the movie, be sure to check this one out. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 20 begins with a little news and speculation as they talk about the Episode VIII aerial set photos, Luke’s Force tree, the new Force For Change video, John Williams’ comments on doing the soundtrack for Episode VIII, Rogue One Vader pics, Mads on Rogue One, the new Han Solo and “Jabba Flow.” For the main topic, they go over their ten favorite Star Wars trailers which leads to an entertaining discussion covering the Revenge of the Jedi trailer, the tone poems, the Yoda Man ad, teasers and more. Gabe and Jason have just been nailing it with their episodes as I’ve enjoyed every single one of them. Their chock full of humor and Star Wars goodness that has quickly made them one of my favorite Star Wars podcasts to listen to. They are this close to being my absolute favorite at the moment.

BNN (Bombad Radio): Episode 5.9.16 covers 10 newsworthy stories for the week in a quick little burst that’s great for staying in the know without getting bogged down in a hour plus podcast. This week they talk about Chrome being the new #1 browser in the world, Seth MacFarlane’s new sci-fi show, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride closing, new Star Wars video game, Battlefield doing a WWI game, the young Han Solo casting, cartridge gaming making a comeback and more.

Bombad Radio: Episode 239 features an interview with voice actor J. Michael Tatum who talks about working for FUNimation, getting into the business, wearing multiple hats to make a living, dubbing vs. subtitles, joining the Dragon Ball club, and lots of advice on getting into voice acting. Afterwards Jeremiah and James cover some Star Wars news. Excellent episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Movie Review: ‘Captain America: Civil War’

May 9, 2016 at 12:05 am | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

Captain America: Civil War, in the end, is a pretty good movie. There’s action, there’s humor, and the storyline is solid. They did a good job of providing reasons why Captain America and Iron Man would fight each other. They also did a good job of not getting too carried away with that angle of the story. Plus there’s some fun new heroes thrown into the mix and somehow they manage to juggle them all.

The beginning of the movie, however, is a little rough. Personally, I had an issue with all the shaky cam, rapid fire fight scenes in the beginning of the film. It’s a chaotic mess for the eyes to keep up. For a while, I was really worried that they would keep up with that style of filming throughout the entire movie. Thankfully it got better and the messy shaky cam fights weren’t as prevalent or noticeable in the latter half of the movie. The battle at the airport, for instance, was easy to follow along with and enjoy. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Captain America: Civil War’…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 16 starts with a little Yoda and Maz Kanata news, their thoughts on the Blu-ray, and leads to their main discussion of Star Wars deleted scenes. This one is a fun one. They each cover their top 10 favorite deleted scenes from all seven films which leads to some hilarious discussion. I loved the idea of restoring all the deleted scenes for a TPM supercut longer than ever with an hour long podrace. Great episode with lots of laughs.

Blast Points: Episode 18 had me smiling three seconds into the episode. They touch on news, then head into a full discussion on Shadows of the Empire. It’s marvelous. They cover the book, the comics, the soundtrack and even the tv and movie tie-ins in all their goofy glory. A must listen to episode. Great coverage and tons of fun. This episode is definitely my pick of the week.

Blast Points: Episode 19 features guest Tom Berges, creator of I Grew Up Star Wars. Tom talks about how the website got started, hearing about Star Wars the first time, collecting, The Holiday Special, the radio dramas, Plastic Galaxy and more. It’s kinda like listening to an episode of My Star Wars Story. Pretty fun. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
