REVIEW - Marvel Star Wars #1 By Kenny Kraly Jr

kenny kraly jr

Well first off this is a great first issue from Marvel.  I liked the story, a good introduction to this new Star Wars Comic Series which takes place between Episode IV 'A New Hope' and Episode V  'The Empire Strikes Back' plus it is now part of The Canon aka Story Group Canon in Star Wars.

There is one point I want to bring up which, not a lot are pointing out.  I like the fact it has the Star Wars main title logo, then the tag line A Long Time Ago In A Galaxy Far Far Away.  On top of this we get the Main Title Crawler on the first few pages in the comic.  That is something that should of
been in Star Wars Comics for a long time but was only in a few of them but not all of time.  I'm glad they went that way of opening up the story, it felt more like Star Wars when I opened the comic and saw that on the pages.


I don't have too many nitpicks for Star Wars #1.  The one I did have was a minor one and that is how the lightsabers were drawn but that's a minor one and not a huge issue in the long run.  Plus, there's a BIG cliffhanger at the end that makes you want to find what what's going to happen next.

Star Wars #1 Marvel Comics is off to a great start and I can't wait what stories they will do next in future issues.  Star Wars #1 gets 10 out of 10 across the board.  Great comics.

So far so good Marvel, nice job!!!

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
