Episode #299 – Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

STAR WARS
EPISODE VI
RETURN OF THE JEDI

It’s 1983, and fans eagerly line up to see the conclusion to the trilogy, with expectations soaring high. What they get causes some distress. Swashbuckling? Ewoks? Silly humor? Well, yeah. It’s the perfect distillation of everything we liked from the first two movies, and quite possibly the best way to end the trilogy. Of course, some additions have been made over the years that have made this chapter difficult to enjoy. Join us as we discuss Return of the Jedi!

Star Trek Picard: What Do We Know?

It’s still a couple of months away, but the hype for Star Trek: Picard is in full swing. At the 2019 Destination Star Trek, I was lucky enough to attend the Patrick Stewart talk and in that he discussed a few things to expect from the new series. For more on my experience at Destination Star Trek see my article here.

Chapter 28 – The Shattered Lands

A hundred years ago a massive quake sundered the eastern shores of Valderian, leaving devastation in its wake and creating what is now referred to as The Shattered Lands. The port town of Edgewater to the north managed to turn the geographical blight into something of a tourist trap in later years, giving a minor boost to their stalling economy. And for a time things were considered good, although you might have gotten a different answer if you polled any random passersby along Edgewater’s main streets. In fact, if you managed to talk to everyone in the town you’d discover a shared emotion: dread. It’s this same feeling that besets our heroes as they begin making their way to the Tower of All.

The Other Voices: Us

Obviously there are a lot of horror movies out there that are just meant to be fun, low-budget schlockfests to give you a good scare before bedtime, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned about Jordan Peele, it’s that he’s not interested in any of that. If he’s going to scare us, it’s not going to be with a creepy monster – it’s going to be with the truth of our own society. And his latest, US, is certainly in line with that trend.

Episode #298 – Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

STAR WARS
EPISODE V
THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

It is a dark time for the rebellion…but a pretty friggin’ sweet time for us because we get to talk about The Empire Strikes Back, easily the best Star Wars film ever made. If the last movie captured our imaginations, this one captured our hearts. It cemented our fandom and gave us the best ship in the galaxy: Han and Leia. It also gave us Yoda, Lando Calrissian, Lobot, and perhaps the biggest surprise this side of the galaxy. There’s a reason why this one sits at the top of many SW fan lists. So join us, won’t you?

Destination Star Trek: My Experience Going Premium

WAS IT WORTH IT?

Last year, I attended my first Star Trek convention in Birmingham and I had an amazing time. I met the stars who-until then-I had only seen through the glass barrier that we call television. They were all so friendly and at the end of the convention I knew that I was going back, but I had decided that I needed to see what the more premium tickets were like.

Originally, I was considering the Admiral pass which costs a pricey £3,000 (which according to Google is currently worth $3851.02). After some deliberation , a trip to Los Angeles and another one coming next year I decided on the lower priced Captain’s pass which was only £800 ($1026.80). Only £800 he says- but compared to £3,000 it’s a significant reduction. So, was it worth it? What benefits did I get for the premium price? Well luckily for you I can tell you without it costing you £800.
