Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Awards Chatter: Rob Reiner episode┬ácovers 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┬ádiscussion 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.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 49 starts with news, they go over the new Rogue One tv spot and they dive into the two international trailers. Their main discussion, however, is kyber crystals as they talk about some Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes that focuses on kyber crystals and how these items are important to Star Wars and Rogue One. Great episode.

Children of the Force: Episode 49 has some Star Wars Rebels Thrawn discussion, they watch and comment on the Rogue One trailer, they talk about the poster, the Rogue One Energizer commercial, and they discuss Ahsoka’s alias. Fun episode.

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics: Episode #11 covers Marvel Star Wars #11 “Star Search.” As usual, they’re joined by Star Wars artist Randy Martinez as they go through the issue and comment on the story, characters and artwork for a fun discussion. Randy also talk a little bit about his Star Wars Celebration plans. Good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Beyond the Vote: Episode 12 is their last episode, recorded on the eve of the election as they touch on the latest developments brought up on Hilary and talk some general politics. Note I listened to this one prior to the election, so I’m not sure how this one would fare if you listened to it now.

Blast Points: Episode 47 covers the Donald Glover news, some Rogue One tidbits, Daisy Ridley’s comments, new Star Wars Rebels episode titles and some brief descriptions, then they head into their main topic – is E.T. a Jedi? They talk about his ability to levitate objects and to heal, him saying home when he sees a Yoda costume, and the E.T. senators in The Phantom Menace. They even bring in The Crystal Skull as a possibility to how it all happened. Crazy awesome episode. Definitely worth a listen.

Blast Points: Episode 48 starts with news, some Episode VIII costume news, Han Solo news and the cinematographer, and they talk about the Star Wars Galactic Atlas. Their main discussion in this episode is Meco, which leads to some pretty fun and entertaining stuff. They talk about who Meco was, why he made a Star Wars disco album, the other albums he did, and they play clips of a lot of the Star Wars Meco songs, as well as some of the newer Meco Star Wars stuff. Part educational and part silly fun, this is a good episode to check out. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Movie Review: ‘Doctor Strange’

November 6, 2016 at 7:57 am | Posted in Marvel, Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

In the latest line of Marvel comic book hero movies comes Doctor Strange. There was a lot of trepidation on this one as it starred a superhero not everyone was very familiar and the first few teasers and trailers didn’t do the best job at selling it. Would it be fun and entertaining like the rest? Added to the difficulties was the whole element of magic that is absolutely necessary to tell this story. Yet Marvel did not disappoint. Not only does Doctor Strange deliver a fun, entertaining movie, but is also feels like the other Marvel comic book hero movies, thus cementing itself into the universe that it will be melding with.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: When Wrestling Collides With Geek Culture starts with Superman, the Donald Glover news, the Guardians of the Galaxy teaser, the Aquaman movie, and they have on guest Ophidian to talk about Chikara wrestling which is a bit odd. I’m not familiar with it. It sounds kind of like live action roleplaying. Also worth noting, Jeremiah fills in for Jeff on this episode.

Beltway Banthas: Eric Geller Episode features guest Eric Geller as they talk politics and Star Wars.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 93 touches on bourbon, Ludacris, Star Wars jackets, acapella John Williams, Joe talks himself into opening up the new Disney Droid Factory set on “Need’em Got’em,” they get into Rex and Star Wars Rebels “The Last Battle,” and more. A blast as always. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
