Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. Some of the summaries might be a little plain as I’m leaving out any Solo spoilers for the time being.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 125 is their Solo discussion episode as they go over their initial thoughts then dive in and walk through the movie. Interesting thought about connecting L3 to Star Wars: Adventures in Colors and Shapes. Worth noting, there were some things they had issues with, which seems to be a common theme with the Solo podcast discussions.

Podcast Network: N/A
Runtime: 1 hour 27 minutes
Audio Quality: Excellent
Editing: Excellent
Hosts: Jason, and Gabe
Rating: Fun

Brews and Blasters: Episode 169 they share their thoughts on Solo, first 3 minutes is spoiler free, then they go into spoilers for the rest of the show. They go through the entire movie and provide a fun breakdown and discussion. Lot of positivity and fun in this one.

Movie Review: ‘Solo’ Spoiler Free

When the end credits hit for Solo, I had a huge grin on my face because this movie is such a fun ride. The story hits all the right cues for a Han Solo adventure. There’s speed, racing, and flying. There’s thieves trying to one-up each other. There’s twists and turns, romance, quirky, lovable characters, and high stakes. From the writing, to the directing, to the acting, and even the music…they nailed it. And boy do they leave you wanting more in such a good way. Continue Reading Movie Review: ‘Solo’ Spoiler Free…
