    June 18, 2018 8:51 am The Thrawn comic is an adaptation of the novel by Timothy Zahn which is why it’s written that way. I think it’s been good, but the Vader comic is the best Star Wars comic to me right now.
    June 11, 2018 10:54 am Wow, I thought the pick of the week was easily Doctor Star and the Kingdom of Lost Tomorrows #4. That was a truly great ending where it was emotional and heartfelt. It didn’t even make the list and you have discussed it before. That was a fantastic mini-series. I liked Justice League #1, but didn’t love it. Martian Manhunter as the POV character essentially and new chairman is great, but it felt like it was overwritten at times. The ending is intriguing and I’m looking forward to more where I thought it did a better job than Avengers #1 which had a much better second issue to me. I read No Justice where I really liked the first issue of that, but it went down in quality after that and I thought Metal was a mess with a great epilogue.
    May 27, 2018 5:19 pm I would agree with that where his voice was too high and was played as being this awe shucks good guy. He was at his best when playing off of Chewie and Lando, but still wasn’t Han Solo where he was overshadowed by other people. Harrison Ford is just so suave and smooth that Alden clearly can’t be that. I disagree with many people who say that Alden made it his own. Maybe Anthony Ingruber could have done better, but I do think that Alden wasn’t the best choice.
    May 27, 2018 12:08 pm I thought it was a fine movie that was very bland and boring along with action scenes that weren’t memorable. Han being given his last name by an Imperial was a truly awful moment and I don’t believe it at all. That is the worst thing and we are supposed to believe that he keeps that name. It just creates more questions. Did Leia know that her son’s last name is named by an Imperial? I’m guessing she wouldn’t be fine with that since she was a Rebel. This is not a very well written movie if you think about it and Lawrence Kasdan didn’t write, “I know,” from ESB. That was an improvised line by Harrison Ford. I thought Alden was fine, but he was way too much of this awe shucks good guy which I don’t believe even with it being 10 years before ANH. The moment with the Enfys Nest reveal makes very little sense and just reminded me of BVS where one conversation would have put a stop to them fighting at the train. It in fact did when she took the mask off. She also caused the deaths of Rio and Val who was Beckett’s wife. Beckett grieves briefly for Val, but then is fine and Rio doesn’t get mentioned again. Why didn’t Beckett want to kill her once the reveal happens? That was pretty ridiculous and unrealistic where it’s poorly written. It was also far too predictable that Beckett would betray Han. Then L3 was obnoxious and was all about droid rights, but then is made to be part of the Millenium Falcon. That goes against what she wanted and repeatedly said how she wanted equal rights which would be going against it completely where she is made to be a slave for the rest of time. If Lando really cared about her, then he doesn’t do that and he wouldn’t put up the Millenium Falcon at the end of the movie. The Millenium Falcon has the last part of L3 and with her character in the movie along with Lando crying over her, then he doesn’t risk losing the Falcon. Repeating the same core concept from ANH with Han being the good guy who helps at the end isn’t new. He has to get hardened in 10 years and I don’t want sequels to this. It’s doing poorly at the box office and I find that to be a good thing if it means we don’t get the sequels. The only surprising moment was Darth Maul appearing and I knew it was him immediately with the robotic legs along with Sam Witwer’s voice before the hood came off. That was cool, but can’t really be followed up on with Rebels.
    May 27, 2018 11:46 am That was Anthony Ingruber who is known for doing impressions and can do a great Harrison Ford impression. He also voiced the Joker in the Batman Telltale game. Darth Maul is killed by Obi-Wan 8 years after the events of this movie, but Han still can’t meet him.
    May 22, 2018 5:00 pm Well there is a pretty bad thing that happened with Michael Allred not getting credited for the X-Force sequence with all of them dying. https://twitter.com/allredmd/status/996866854860742661?s=21 I thought Deadpool 2 was good, not great and I knew about Vanessa dying with the Alien 3 comparisons from early screenings. I prefer Deadpool 1 quite a bit more. I also knew about Juggernaut appearing due to just following movie news. The CG for Juggernaut was pretty awful and very similar to the look of Steppenwolf. The final scene with Vanessa was taken away by Cable going back which was a mistake to me which hurts the impact of that moment. It’s also pronounced “Za-see Beets” which I only know from interviews and watching her explain where her name came from with her father hearing the wrong pronounciation in German.
    November 4, 2017 6:26 pm Opinions don't usually change that drastically in a year where you go from recommending it whole-heartedly to people to saying you are ambivalent about it and found it so boring. I'm not arguing the quality of the movie where I thought it was fine, but not memorable. It's one thing to say you don't like something as much as you thought originally, but to go so far the other way in a year doesn't typically occur.
    November 4, 2017 5:34 pm I re-listened to the Doctor Strange review and Mike seems to be a hypocrite saying how he thought it was so boring while talking about how much he liked it in that review.
    November 4, 2017 5:22 pm Beta Ray Bill was one of the heads on the tower as a former champion. That was the Easter egg and originally he was supposed to be in the movie as a cameo, but Kevin Feige said it wasn't worth doing in a very small role so they will do it right later when featuring that character.
    October 15, 2017 12:35 pm I am genuinely surprised that Conor did not mention Detective Comics #966. This issue and the last have been great and the best arc since the first one with the start of Rebirth. I also thought Conor would be happy to discuss what happens to the future Damian as told by Tim Drake as Batman.
