Movie Review: ‘The Revenant’

January 8, 2016 at 10:15 pm | Posted in Movies, Reviews | Leave a comment

Tired of watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Other movies do exist, and The Revenant is one that I’ve been looking forward to for a while. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio and sports both Mad Max and General Hux for the supporting cast. But there’s no road warriors or stormtroopers in this, instead it’s frontiersmen and indians as people kill each other on all sides. Click here to read our full review.

Ewok Corner: The Mystery of Rey’s Parents

January 7, 2016 at 12:01 am | Posted in Episode VII, Ewok Corner, Movies, Opinion, Regular Feature, Star Wars | 1 Comment

For those who haven’t seen the movie yet, there are spoilers below.

Rey Skywalker or Rey Fill-in-the-Blank?

Most people’s initial reactions on seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens is that Rey is Luke’s daughter. She’s strong in the Force. She’s the main character. She has to be Luke’s daughter, right? But given the details in the film, that might not be the case.

So why isn’t Rey Luke’s kid? First off, when Luke is mentioned to her, she replies that isn’t he a myth? Thus if Luke is her father, she doesn’t know it. We know Rey is waiting for her family to return. That in itself is an interesting line in the movie as it implies Rey might have more than a mother and father that left her. The other detail we have to work with is her Force vision of being left on Jakku. She was very very young at the time, and she was left with the alien junk dealer, Unkar Plutt. This begs the question why Luke would leave his daughter to some thug on Jakku who rations out food for junk? We know Luke left because one of his students turned to the dark side and wiped out his fledgling Jedi academy. Surely if Luke had a kid, Han and Leia would know.

Kicking off another year, here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 219 is their The Force Awakens discussion with Jeremiah, James, Jason, Matt and author Adam Bray. Some of them liked it, some of them loved it, so there’s a mixture of opinions. Jason goes into all the reused elements, while James tries to defend it. It’s an interesting discussion.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode #49 covers the premiere of The Force Awakens with both pre and post show discussion, getting thoughts from other fans, and their initial thoughts on the film. Fun episode.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode #50 features Dan and Corey as they rank The Force Awakens then get into a roundtable discussion with Jeff, Matt, Randy, Luke and Aaron as they touch on the characters that spoke to them most, least, their favorite moments, scenes, and more. Excellent discussion. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
