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…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 124 follows along with Jason and Gabe at The Detroit Institute of Arts as they visit the Star Wars and the Power of Costume exhibit. They have some audio of some of the speakers at the exhibit opening talking about the event and the props, then they have audio as Jason and Gabe walk around and enjoy all the sights to be had. A bit different than usual since this one is live from the scene, but the audio quality is still pretty good. A fun listen.

Podcast Network: N/A
Runtime: 1 hour 6 minutes
Audio Quality: Great
Editing: Excellent
Hosts: Jason, and Gabe
Rating: Fun

Brews and Blasters: Episode 168 starts with some hype for Solo as the days draw nearer, then they dive into the Star Wars Resistance announcement and spotlight one of the voice actors, Bobby Moynihan. Cool episode as I never realized just how big a Star Wars fan Bobby Moynihan was. Nice way to start getting pumped for Star Wars Resistance.

Podcast Network: Retrozap
Runtime: 58 minutes
Audio Quality: Excellent
Editing: Excellent
Hosts: Joe, and Chris

Doctor Aphra #20

Writer: Simon Spurrier

Cover Artist: Ashley Witter
Variant Cover: Rod Reis

BROKEN, INSIDE BEGINS NOW! Aphra is behind bars. Again. But this time, she finds herself in Imperial custody, strapped to an explosive transmitter synced to a single hub-droid. Take one step too far? KABLOOEY! Normally, this wouldn’t be an issue to sit still for Aphra – but what happens when her Imperial captors send her hub-droid to the middle of a war zone?
And, uh, what’s this rumor about the prison being haunted?
