Quick Hits

March 13, 2016 – I feel I have to say something, as The Force Cast was one of the original Star Wars themed podcasts that I began listening to when I first found podcasts in general. It saddens me to see what appears to be the end of that great show, and all of fantastic spin-offs they had created. At the end of the day, anyone who does podcasting, blogging, arting (you know, drawing?) and fan fiction are all just normal people having fun with a subject they care about deeply. A vast majority of us have full time jobs that we have to focus on and find the time, usually at night, do create this content.  No one is really at fault here, things happen and life goes on.  I’m sure all the hosts will find there way to new podcasts and continue to create great content.


March 4, 2016 – The Blu-Ray and digital release dates have finally been announced (confirmed?).  It was basically known to be April 5 thanks to Amazon Canada listing it previously, but the digital release is now showing  as April 1!!!  Let’s just say I’ll be watching The Force Awakens a LOT during my workouts starting in April.  Also, just my opinion, by Target should be where you pre-order from.  They supposedly have 20 minutes of exclusive content, including deleted scenes that are exclusive to their release. The other interesting one would be Best Buy’s release in the steelbook version. I don’t own I – VI in steelbook, so that isn’t attractive to me, I’d rather have the bonus footage!

Best Buy Pre-Order – Let’s be honest, I may end up owning this copy, too.


 

 

Jan 29, 2016 – I’m always up for fun, animated takes on movies. Here is one I found today on devour.com that recaps TFA in 60 seconds.  Fantastic!

Jan 29, 2016 – The clip that started it all, this might be one of the funniest things Saturday Night Live has done.  Interesting note, only 3 Star Wars actors have HOSTED SNL – Carrie Fisher, Natalie Portman and now Adam Driver.  Enjoy!
