star wars rogue one movie poster



Take a look at this impressive fan art from Ryan Crain. A touching poster for the upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One.

The artist tells us from his MoviePilot page:

Well today is the day that I get to reveal the first poster in a new series Mark Edwards and I have created. "ROGUE ONE" is the first Star Wars stand alone film Disney has announced. Mark and I thought it would be really cool to try and be the first one's to come out with a "Rogue One" movie poster, and as far as I can tell we have completed that mission. I have seen a drawing or two but nothing like this, so that is pretty exciting.

Going through my old VHS collection, I recently stumbled upon a few tapes I recorded from TV, somewhere in the early nineties of a couple of episodes of Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Most of us are familiar with the CGI version of Alvin's little friends, the Chipmunks.
In the eighties Alvin had to save his adopted Chipmunks (almost) every week in an animated series, that ran from 1983 to 1990.



In it's 8th and final season the Chipmunks spoofed various big Hollywoodfilms (Back to the Future, Gremlins, King Kong, Star Trek, Batman and RoboCop, to name just a few).


However, the episode that is of interest today, is the 5th one in this (final) series, it's one with a groovy title: Daytona Jones and the Pearl of Wisdom.


I haven't been able to find a DVD version of the entire series, (or at least season 8), but thank god for YouTube...

Enjoy this little treasure...


Ronny.

Stargate jogcast

The lastest episode of Stargate Jogcast is out and features me talking Stargate SG-1 with fellow Stargate fan, Adam P O'Brien.  In this episode we talk about the first ever episode, ' Children of the Gods.'  We take a deep look at the episode, reveal some behind the scenes trivia and there's a couple of impressions in there too.  Here's the show notes:

Hi there Jogcasters, as we come back from hiatus we have our first monthly show leading into August: Stargate Jogcast: Children of the Gods. It is a look back at the first episode of the epic show SG1.

Rob Wainfur and I sit back and talk at length about the original episode, we look at trivia, and the events leading up to the series. We pull apart what worked and what didn’t, some of this trivia you may know, some you may not.

We also go through what we would change, and cut into the film etc. This is based on the new cut of the episode: THE FINAL CUT. It was done a few years ago, and makes the episode more film like.

After that we also have a good insight into some of the UK conventions with Rob and a surprise visit he had with a member of the SG1, one that loves beer, and the Simpsons, and loved putting things together in a previous TV show out of the oddest tools etc. We have this plus all the usual Michael Caine references from Adam, and all round humour you can expect from Jogcast Radio.

We will see you on the other side of the gate! Chevron 1 engage!

Marvel Star Wars Kanan The Last Padawan #4 Review

Written by Greg Weisman, Art by Pepe Larraz, Cover by Mark Brooks

Spoiler Warning!


We start where the last issue left off, whilst on a thieving job young Caleb (to become Kanan) and his new partner in crime, Kasmir get caught in the act of stealing droids! Shockingly Kasmir tells the captors that Caleb is a Jedi Padawan to seemingly save his own skin. Caleb feels betrayed....again!
The captors contact the Imperials to let them know they have captured a Jedi, the Imperials inform them that they will collect him and execute the young Jedi.
Whilst thinking things over in his cell, he is surprised to be broken out by Kasmir who betrayed him in the first place.  They escape off world in Kasmirs' ship.


'Caleb & Kasmir'
  

We are then taken to the Clones interrogating a Gamorrean for information on Calebs whereabouts, they are still in hot pursuit.  Back on Kasmirs' ship things seem to take a turn for the better and our young hero has made a friend in his new partner in crime. 
Kasmir has decided to trade their acquired loot for other stolen goods and they depart for a tropical island called 'Lahn'. 

'General Kleeve'

Upon landing they split up and Caleb goes to meet their contact, who turns out to be General Kleeve an, enemy during 'The Clone Wars' and he reveals that he owes Kasmir a ship.  Turning back to Kasmir, the two clones who are hunting them catch the Padawans new friend, Caleb sees this and decides to flee to save his new friend and convinces his old Clone War nemesis to lend him the ship, but as they approach the ship the two Clones catch up with them! To be concluded.........



This Issue continues in the same brilliant vein of it predecessors, and is probably my favourite Star Wars comic of the moment.  The art is superb as is the story telling, you really get an insight into the emotions of the sad story of Caleb, soon to be Kanan who seems at this moment in time, destined to face the world alone still torn, in places between his Masters Jedi teachings and his new life of crime.  The storyline sucks you in and makes you hungry for more. I find if I am disappointed at the end, then the story has served its purpose.  I especially liked the twist where Kasmir blows Calebs cover to get him detained and then escape.

We are also introduced to 'Lahn' a seemingly beautiful tropical paradise that seems more a kin to the Pirates of the Caribbean than to the Star Wars galaxy! And interestingly Kleeves' hideout resembles Jabba the Hutt's palace on Tatooine. 

A brilliant comic series,   I look forward to the next one
