Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 37 talks about the podcast Daisy Ridley did, the Ep. VIII title, Rogue One news, magazine pics, listener feedback and their main discussion focuses on Lobot. Fun episode.

Blast Points: Episode 38 starts with some discussion of Ep. VIII news, a Yoda puppet rumor, the newly revealed Rogue One toys, the synopsis for Catalyst, and a tidbit on Mon Calamari. Then they head into their main discussion dealing with Genndy Tartakovsky’s 2003 Clone Wars micro series. They talk about the characters, the episodes, and the similarities and differences with TCW. Fun stuff with great observations. Definitely worth a listen.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 86 begins with some drinking tales which leads to whales and whiskey. For long time listeners, it’s no surprise, as this is the kind of thing that makes Brews and Blasters stand apart and so appealing. Joe and Chris have fun no matter what way the discussion is going, and it always comes back to Star Wars. In this one, they bring it around for a look at all the cool new Rogue One toys that have been revealed. Great episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 027 is titles “The Star Wars Show (Pitches)” which really threw me off because I thought they were talking about pitches to the YouTube series that StarWars.com has been posting each week. This episode is actually about the rumored Star Wars live action television show and ideas they have for Star Wars TV shows. They pitch an Old Republic show, a Lando and Luke show and others.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 028 focuses on Star Wars Rebels as they talk about what’s working, what they’d like to see the show do, the big picture, and what they’re doing wrong.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 029 focuses on backstories. They talk about Chewbacca and the Darth Vader comic series, Mon Mothma, Obi-Wan and the hits and misses of Legends and the new canon. Fair warning, if you like Obi-Wan’s portrayal in Kenobi or Mon Mothma’s recent appearances, this episode may rile you up a bit. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Beltway Banthas: Interview with Tamara Keith is a fun one. Tamara is the White House correspondent for NPR and co-host of the NPR Politics podcast. They talk with Tamara about Star Wars and the politics of Star Wars. Definitely worth checking out. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Movie Review: ‘Hell or High Water’

August 21, 2016 at 5:23 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

Hell or High Water could very well be the sleeper hit of the summer. It’s not a big action movie and there are no superheroes or aliens. Instead, there’s exceptional writing, stellar acting and an engrossing character story about a pair brothers who go on a bank robbing spree. There’s laughs and there’s dramatic, gut wrenching moments that will have you experiencing the full spectrum of human emotion. It’s a film that falls into the genre of modern western with the likes of No Country For Old Men, but with a better ending.

First off, Taylor Sheridan does an outstanding job with the writing for the movie. The dialog is witty, truthful, natural and intelligent. It hits just the right notes for each character, and slowly changes pace as the story unwinds. Fun moments, off color jokes, and the teasing of the characters creates a bond between them and the viewers. The setting of rundown little Texas towns strikes a note at the plight of the working class. Yet the movie covers both angles, that of the bank robbers and their motivations, as well as the role of the lawmen who must stop them. It’s not about fun and games. When reality kicks in, it hits you hard, and this movie makes sure to cover that. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Hell or High Water’…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Summer Movie Recap & Suicide Squad Review starts with their thoughts on this summer’s movies, biggest surprises, biggest disappointments, then they talk news. They cover Jimmy Smits, Marvel TV/Netflix, and they share their thoughts on Suicide Squad. Good episode.

Beltway Banthas: Interview with Rep. Jason Saine of NCs 97th district. Jason talks about his Star Wars fandom and how Star Wars plays a part of his political life. It’s a neat interview, and while there are a few weird audio issues, it’s still worth a listen.

Blast Points: Episode 33 starts with the news, Jimmy Smits, Two-Tubes, Bistan, U-Wing, they talk human Jabba, speculate about flashbacks, dive into Episode VIII news, Han movie news, the Han Solo comic, and tv rumors and news. Pretty much a jammed packed episode with news and fun discussion. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
