Guardians of the Whills is a fun little adventure story set shortly before the events of Rogue One. This is very much a lead-in novel and not a history of the two characters or the order they are apart of. But it is fun. Click here to read our full review.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

’80s All Over: July 1981 is an interesting look at all the movies that came out in July 1981. Hosted by Drew McWeeny and Scott Weinberg, the podcast covers all of the movies of the 80’s month-by-month. In this episode they cover a lot of movies, from ones you may never have heard of like Force Five, Gas and Endless Love, to more memorable films like Escape From New York, The Fox and the Hound and Arthur. Whether the film was good or bad, they share their opinions, some details and facts on each movie, and give listeners an idea of films they might want to check out and ones to avoid. If you’re into movies, you might want to give this one a try. FYI there is adult language so expect F bombs.

Blast Points: Episode 75 covers the new leaked Han Solo pics, The Last Jedi Vanity Fair content, a listener questions on the Gungan peace globe, an R2 song, and reviews. Fun packed episode, especially with all the Vanity Fair discussion which is the main focus of this one.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode 69 features guests Ryder Waldron and Matt Moore as they talk toys, Canto Bight, the Variety Fair pics, and then they talk with Jeff Dwoskin about Star Wars, Jar Jar and the Clone Wars. Dan’s audio is a little quiet, otherwise a good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Book Review: ‘Rebel Rising’ by Beth Revis

Rebel Rising by Beth Revis is the best Rogue One tie-in book I’ve read so far. This book covers Jyn’s life from the age of eight to her early twenties, following her training under Saw to her eventually rescue by the Rebellion from Wobani labor camp. It answers many of the questions fans have about her character, as well illuminating more on Saw and her rebel activities. Click here to read our full review.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 74 is pure fun. They celebrate the 31st anniversary of “The Great Heap” Droids tv movie. They start off with some trivia on the show, then dive in with a full length commentary on “The Great Heap.” You can hear the audio of the show in the background which makes it easy to follow along. With Jason and Gabe’s commentary, it’s just plain fun. Great episode.

Bombad Radio: Episode 278 features a cool conversation with author J.W. Rinzler as they talk to him about his new book All Up: Odyssey of the Rocketmen. They talk about the men behind the rockets, what the research for this project was like, and even some aliens discussion. Great interview to check out.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 120 features Joe and Chris as they talk Disney hackers, winter hat guy, food, Dolph Lundgren, Snoke, books and Unknown Regions, and more. Fun episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
