    May 9, 2016 6:39 am http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Brandy/Canon "Near as I can recall, I traded it for a ten-carat chrysopaz and three bottles of good brandy about five years ago on Commenor." ―A line of dialogue from Han Solo exclusively found in the novelization of A New Hope Brandy was first mentioned within the Star Wars universe in the novelization of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which was written by Alan Dean Foster and released in 1976. The line referring to the beverage is not included in the film, and as it conflicts with the script from a scene in the film it is not considered canon. The drink was however confirmed to be canon when it was mentioned in the novel Aftermath, which was written by Chuck Wendig and released in 2015. Brandy was a type of alcoholic beverage. After the Imperial Governor of Haidoral Prime, Everi Chalis, surrendered herself to the Alliance to Restore the Republic's Sixty-First Mobile Infantry in order to defect, she presented the senior staff of the company with a bottle of brandy and figs produced locally on Haidoral Prime. To prove the drink was not poisoned she took a swig herself, directly from the bottle, after which the Rebels shared the drink between themselves as they discussed how Chalis might be an asset to the Alliance. Before the bottle was finished, Chalis knocked it from a table to the floor when she leaned swiftly across to whisper in the ear of Captain Micha Evon, commanding officer of the company. Jogan fruit brandy was a type of brandy made using jogan fruit which the ex-Imperial loyalty officer Sinjir Rath Velus attempted to order at the Alcazar cantina on the planet Akiva shortly before the Battle of Akiva; however, the establishment did not stock such fancy drinks. Also the Expanded Universe is no longer Canon but here are all of the Legends appearances of Brandy: Star Wars: The Old Republic Star Wars: The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 3 The Old Republic: Annihilation Darth Bane: Path of Destruction Darth Plagueis Cloak of Deception (Mentioned only) Darth Maul: Saboteur A Cularin Presence MidWorld HNNsmall Greyshade Proposes Gambling as Revenue—HoloNet News Vol. 531 52 (content now unavailable; backup links 1 2 on Archive.org) (Mentioned only) The Cestus Deception The Clone Wars: Wild Space SWInsider "Hondo Ohnaka's Not-So-Big Score"—Star Wars Insider 144 Clone Wars Gambit: Stealth Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith novelization (Mentioned only) Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader (Mentioned only) The Force Unleashed novel Lando Calrissian and the Mindharp of Sharu (Mentioned only) Shadow Games Rebel Dawn Rookies: No Turning Back (Mentioned only) Death Star SWInsider "Constant Spirit"—Star Wars Insider 145 Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope novel (Mentioned only) Scoundrels Honor Among Thieves SWAJsmall "A Certain Point of View"—Star Wars Adventure Journal 8 Star Wars: Empire: The Wrong Side of the War Star Wars Galaxies Star Wars Galaxies: The Ruins of Dantooine SWGsmall "A Credit for Your Thoughts"—Star Wars Gamer 2 Taster's Choice: The Tale of Jabba's Chef Mara Jade: By the Emperor's Hand SWAJsmall "The Farrimmer Cafe"—Star Wars Adventure Journal 11 Star Wars: X-Wing Rogue Squadron: Mandatory Retirement X-Wing: Rogue Squadron (First appearance) X-Wing: Wedge's Gamble X-Wing: The Bacta War X-Wing: Wraith Squadron X-Wing: Iron Fist X-Wing: Solo Command Tatooine Ghost X-Wing: Isard's Revenge I, Jedi Planet of Twilight Before the Storm Assault at Selonia The New Jedi Order: Dark Journey (Mentioned only) The New Jedi Order: Enemy Lines I: Rebel Dream (Mentioned only) The New Jedi Order: Enemy Lines II: Rebel Stand (Mentioned only) The New Jedi Order: The Final Prophecy The New Jedi Order: The Unifying Force Legacy of the Force: Betrayal (Mentioned only) Legacy of the Force: Fury Legacy of the Force: Revelation Fate of the Jedi: Omen Fate of the Jedi: Ascension X-Wing: Mercy Kill Star Wars: Legacy: Indomitable (Mentioned only)
    May 8, 2016 5:15 pm John Wick directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch were brought on board as 2nd Unit Directors basically taking care of all the action sequences...probably the shaky cam action scenes. I thought this movie was better than all of the other MCU movies and i like almost all of them (not a fan of Thor Dark World or Iron Man 2-3)
    April 18, 2016 8:36 am Luke who had the first audience question this week should check out Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men Podcast. They cover the particular era of X-Men in question as well as a wide range of other X-Men arcs and various spin-off books in semi-chronological order. In addition to the comics they often discuss the various cartoon and film incarnations as well. The hosts are a married couple that were geek high school sweethearts so they have excellent chemistry and it makes for a fun listen. http://www.xplainthexmen.com/

    July 13, 2015 8:44 am I don't get the hate for the latest Star Wars comics. The Darth Vader book and Star Wars proper are both incredibly fun adventure stories with unique twists and loving tributes. Lobot qualms aside, the Lando book is off to a good start too! Comics, cartoons, books, etc are the best place for further exploration of the Star Wars universe and no matter how many times an executive calls them official cannon, they're not actual movies. The new stories aren't going to effect Episodes VII, VII, or IX directly in the film. Don't expect references such as Leia saying to Han "this is worse than the time you didn't tell me you were already married!" or Luke recalling that his SECOND confrontation with Vader was on Bespen rather than on the second Death Star in Jedi. Listen, I grew up on Star Wars during the pre-THX Remaster era where the Expanded Universe stories like the Thrawn Trilogy and Dark Empire were all the rage and The Force was my freaking religion. I remember how exciting it was when the Power of the Force 1995 action figures came out and when Tales of Jabba's Palace, Tales of the Bounty Hunters, and Shadow's Of The Empire were released to such fan fare you would have thought there was a new film released! Then the unthinkable happened and the special editions WERE in the theaters and I remember waiting in long lines each time and being so excited that i didn't even notice how horrible the CGI looked and I was pleased with the "restored" footage of Jabba on Mos Eisley because well that's more Star Wars!! It wasn't until the prequels that it finally sunk in that the franchise was no longer speaking to me and after Episode III came out I pretty much hung up my lightsaber for awhile and slowly came back to the universe over time with weery eyes and depressing memories. The Force Awakens trailers and the Marvel books make me feel like a kid again. I'm once again salivating at the notion of a Star Wars feast coming this Christmas and until then I'll be snacking on these nachos and candy bars in the form of Marvel Comics. I'm honestly shocked that anything other than an actual movie would bum ANYONE out. The audience for these things are pretty clear and no one is FORCE-ing you to accept anything other than your own imagination.

    August 18, 2014 9:10 am The Good: Suicide Squad Deadshot Amanda Waller Batman not being the main character The Bad: Characterizations of every character other than Deadshot / Amanda Waller / Batman The voice acting The Joker The title "Batman: Assault on Arkham" (it should have been "Suicide Squad: Insult to Batman") The Ugly: SEXISM - both main female characters were hyper sexualized in a way that made me cringe. Verdict: FAIL - I felt like a High School Football team was forced to write this script in detention for disrupting their English class. It wasn't "adult" or "mature" it was just lazy trash coming from an underdeveloped place of creativity.
