Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 120 is the usual fun as they talk Solo, Motley Crue, the new Solo TV spots, and the Empire photos. Then they talk The Force Awakens as they travel back in time to recall the hype, the trailers, the leaked concept art, things that were leaked or revealed that weren’t in the movie, and wild rumors. It’s a fun trip down memory lane.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 54 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Jason, and Gabe, Rating: Fun

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode 119 Dan talks with Mark Von Ohlen and Lacey Gilleran about Topps cards, Solo, Denny’s cards, working with actors for autographs, Mark shares a shirtless Adam Driver story, and then they go over comic news, magazine news, and game news. Afterwrds, Dan previews two new podcasts he’ll be on. One is a clip of him, Tom and Cory talking about Solo which is from their new weekly Patreon show, and the other one features Dan and Jim Hill in a podcast called Looking At Lucafilm. The audio quality for Mark and Lacey isn’t the best as Mark has some background noise and Lacey is calling over a phone from the sound of it. Not too bad though.

Podcast Network: Coffee With Kenobi, Runtime: 1 hour 23 minutes, Audio Quality: Good, Editing: Excellent, Host: Dan Z, Rating: Good

Comic Book Noob: The Black Order is hosted by just Regina and Scott, but they do a great job of going over Thanos’ minions, The Black Order. They talk about Corvis Glave, Proxima Midnight, Kull Obsidian/Black Dwarf, Ebony Maw and Super Giant. They go over the powers, personalities and stories for each. Lots of great info. Excellent primer for Infinity War, and, given the timing, I’m making this one my Pick of the Week.

There’s lots of stories out there, and not every story works for every person. Last Shot by Daniel José Older is an ambitious tale that tries to tackle some big ideas, merge eras, and do some really fun things. While it isn’t perfect, it’s still an enjoyable read and worth checking out. Click here to read our full review which does get into a few light spoilers concerning the main plot of the book.

Movie Review: ‘Chappaquiddick’

April 13, 2018 at 12:05 am | Posted in Movies, Reviews | 1 Comment

First off, Chappaquiddick isn’t for everyone. This is a political drama about Ted Kennedy’s automotive accident on Chappaquiddick Island that lead to the death of Mary Jo Kopechne. It’s a story that’s complicated in large part to the way the incident was handled. The movie does a good job of covering the incident, the key players, and providing a rather level headed account of what did and might have happened. In the end, it doesn’t answer all of the questions, but on the other hand, that’s kind of the point. It provides you with enough information to get you wondering about what happened and how it was handled. Was Ted in the right or the wrong? Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Chappaquiddick’…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 116 they talk about getting The Last Jedi on Blu-ray, the experience of watching it at home, they go over the documentary The Director and The Jedi, the deleted scenes and they touch on some of the other extras included. Now I specifically waited until after I watched all the extras before listening to this episode, but in retrospect, that’s really not necessary. Either way, you’ll enjoy this episode, assuming you like movie of course.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 1 hour 17 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Jason, and Gabe, Rating: Great

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 118 they go over the Solo trailer. This is a nice breakdown that keeps it fun as they touch on all the cool stuff revealed.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 53 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Jason, and Gabe, Rating: Great

Brews and Blasters: Episode 163 covers Mr. Miagi, vodka, the HasLab sail barge getting backed and what might be next, the Solo Denny’s commercial, aliens in the Solo cantina, Topps cards, Therm Scissorpunch, lobster recipes, Gamorrean guard figures, and Simon Pegg on changes in Episode VIII. This was definitely the funniest episode I listed to this week. Loved it.
