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…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 84 goes over all the fun ALS Star Wars videos, they talk about the Star Wars fan film awards, the cover the Green Cross droid renovation, and go through all the con and mission reports for the 501st garrisons. One report that caught my attention and was pretty neat to hear about was a troop they did to an even for the blind. It was interesting to hear about the kids’ reactions to the 501st members.

Bombad Radio: September Free-For-All episode features James and special guests Scott Murray (Assembly of Geeks) and David Gremillion (Get Your Geek On). As always in the free-for-alls, they cover a lot of topics, this one focusing on all things Star Wars. They talk about the possibilities for Star Wars rides and attractions at Disney theme parks, merchandise options, and much more. They also dig in a little into Star Wars Rebels and Jake Lloyd.

Episode 165 is a live report from Salt Lake Comic Con 2014. Jeremiah runs down all the people he’s talked to. Kind of a random and inconsequential episode, so you can skip this one if you like.

Episode 166 features their audio from the Sam Witwer panel at Salt Lake Comic Con 2014. Sam talks about Being Human, Smallville, Battlestar Galactica, and lots of Star Wars topics. He dives into Maul, out geeking Dave Filoni, the selfish side of the dark side, and the proper viewing order for Star Wars. The panel was moderated by Bryan Young and the audio turned out pretty good. You can hear Master Bruce there in the beginning but he naps through most of the panel so it’s interruption free (for those who don’t know, Master Bruce is Jeremiah’s baby boy who is aptly named Bruce). Best of all, Sam tells lots of fun stories, so you won’t want to miss out on this one. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Gary Kurtz Reflects on the Impact of Star Wars

Producer Gary Kurtz once believed that Star Wars was “just a movie” and people needed to walk out of the theater and “forget about it”.  Not so anymore.  These days Kurtz fully appreciates the influence Star Wars has had.

After 34 years it would be kind of hard not to notice.  Star Wars is still going strong in major popularity, but it’s interesting to read what this man on the inside at the beginning has to say about the phenomenon.  And of course no true Star Wars fan can pass up finding out the tiniest tidbit no matter how minuscule.

While George was still working on the screenplay for the first film, we decided that sound was going to be an important part of Star Wars. So I went down to the USC cinema department, where George and I went to film school, and asked the head of sound if he had any finishing students who were particularly creative.

Read here for more Gary Kurtz reflections.
