Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 67 covers the first Star Wars documentary, The Making of Star Wars. From their conspiracy theory to how it could be canon, to audio clips and fun observations, they cover the commentary and keep it entertaining and informative. Great episode.

Blast Points: Episode 68 starts out with some excitement for Star Wars Celebration Orlando as they talk wardrobes and mental prepping. Then they rundown the convention history of Star Wars. From the first convention in 1976, to what could be called Celebration Zero, and then going through some of the official Star Wars Celebrations. They cover what led up to the event, and their memories of the first ones they went to. Fun episode. They cap off with some final tips for those heading to Celebration.

Bombad Radio: Episode 274 covers news. Star Wars Celebration, Mass Effect: Andromeda, movie news, DC movie updates, upcoming Batman movies and more for a bunch of Star War and non-Star Wars topics. Good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:Movies The Ruin Childhoods” kicks off with Amy’s report from Paleyfest including stuff on Outlander, Flash, Arrow and Tron. As an aside, I’m kinda surprised by how apathetic they were toward Tron: Legacy. Scott hasn’t seen it, Jeff didn’t like it, and Amy is the only one who did enjoy it. I, on the other hand, really enjoyed the new Tron. Beyond that, they also talk about Guardians of the Galaxy and Groot’s aversion to dancing in front of Drax, Agent Carter comments about the future, J.J. Abrams’ comments, the 20 new books for Journey To Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: Aftermath, and the female Ghostbuster movie. Their main discussion is on whether movies can ruin your childhood and the use of phrase as of late, which is an interesting topic. They also touch on whether or not we’re heading for a superhero burnout.

Our Very Own Marvel Civil War” starts off with a discussion of Pixels and the recently released trailer before heading into a March Madness tournament discussion for Marvel characters. They start out with a bunch of character, have them face off against each other, then each hosts/guest says which one should win. Whoever gets the most votes proceeds to the next round until there’s an ultimate victor. I have to be honest, it runs a bit long. At first it was neat, but as it dragged on, the discussion struggled to keep my interest. I think it might have worked better as a smaller segment spread out over several episodes rather than doing it all at once.

Fish’s End, Leia’s Story & Supergirl’s Costume” begins with some discussion on the new Avengers trailer, the Groot comic, and thoughts on Gotham and Toy Story 4. Then they have guest Jenna Busch on to talk about Princess Leia #1, and guests Andy Behbakht (The Flash Podcast) and Rebecca Johnson (Supergirl Radio) to talk and speculate about The Flash television show and the upcoming Supergirl show. I didn’t enjoy this episode as much. For starters, Princess Leia #1 was one of the worst Star Wars comics I’ve read in a while so there was a disconnect there. That in turn wasn’t helped too much by their next guests as I haven’t watched The Flash. Wasn’t a whole lot for me to connect with on this episode. However, if you enjoyed Princess Leia #1 and are a fan of The Flash, you’ll probably enjoy it. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Jedi News Interviw with Brian Rood

Jedi News posted a really nice interview with Star Wars artist Brian Rood covering his painting for Star Wars Celebration Europe II.

What was the inspiration behind your Celebration Europe piece?

Brian Rood: I have wanted to do this painting for some time…I like the idea of seeing Boba Fett returning to his childhood home in his adult life. We don’t necessarily know what he is doing here. The viewer is not sure if Boba is coming or going…Is he having a moment of doubt or a moment of personal reflection. I love having artwork that can have dozens of possible stories behind one piece. The idea of portraying the actor Temuera Morrison as Boba is something that I have wanted to do since I first saw Episode II. I saw one of Art Andrews photographs of a crouching Boba Fett and that was the initial spark behind the characters pose and setting of this painting. The initial design was just Fett and his ship. It was fun but putting him in the rain in front of his childhood home, really added a new dimension to the story I was trying to portray.

Where to start, well, Dave Filoni is back at it with the TIE fighters. Some sites think this could be research for a new television series, however we have it on good authority that this is simply the first in a new series of toys from Hasbro. Expect to see Filoni fighters on toy shelves early next year. Continue Reading Around the Web…
