Indy V Delayed Until 2023. A Blessing In Disguise?

Disney announced yesterday (via various outlets) that Indiana Jones 5 will not grace our cinema screens until June 2023.  Variety was quoted as saying it was "related to production."   Indy V was not the only culprit though as six Marvel movies were also delayed.  Harrison Ford's shoulder injury while on set of Indy V hasn't helped the production and no doubt would have caused some delays. But, where as some are looking at the negative side of this, I can't help that this is a good thing.  After all the delay to the latest James Bond movie due to the pandemic ultimately gave us a much better movie than the original trailer would have led us to believe.  Spend more time fine-tuning the movie and we could end up with a spectacular Indiana Jones movie.  All good things comes to those who wait as they say.  I know Indy V was announced was back in 2016 but with production being in full swing in the last few months it's really happening and having a few more months

Hope In The Star Wars Saga by Patty Hammond

Guest Post by Patty Hammond Originally posted in 2018. (I felt the article and the subject matter deserved a repost - Rob.) In my opinion, the Star Wars saga, at the heart, is about concept of ‘hope’. What is ‘Hope’? According to the Oxford English Dictionary it is both a noun and a verb. As a noun it is ‘A feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen.’ and as a verb it is ‘Want something to happen or be the case.’ Star Wars embraces both of these definitions. There are many examples of these throughout the saga… In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the concept of hope is mentioned by three characters in the film. First by Cassian Andor, next by Jyn Erso and finally Princess Leia Organa herself with the last word, “Hope”. “Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you are my only hope” Princess Leia Organa in Star Wars: A New Hope. It is these words of hope, shown by the Astromech droid R2-D2, that steers Luke Skywalker towards the heroes path in Star Wars: A New Hope and again in T

John Williams: Indy V Score To Start Recording In "1-2 Weeks"

Indy V Score Recording Incoming Thanks to the lovely folks over at JWFan.Com we find out that John Williams is set to start recording the score for Indiana Jones V in "1-2 weeks" but of course it won't be until next year we get to hear it.  It's kind of comforting to know that more John Williams music is on the way. JWFan tell us: John Williams will start writing the music for the new Indiana Jones film “in 1-2 weeks” according to reports from fans who attended his first of three concerts in Berlin, -although “you’ll still have to wait until next summer to hear it”, he said, adding that the movie was “on schedule, despite [Harrison] Ford’s injury”. Williams also joked that he never knows what Spielberg is doing next, and that “Indiana Jones is changing by the second.” Are you excited for another Indiana Jones soundtrack from John Williams?  Let us know in the comments.

BOOK REPORT: The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker Volume 3: 1983-85

Much of Star Wars is based on the trilogy format, whether it is films or publishing. In the case of "real world" Star Wars, the format still applies, and applies most effectively. Kim DM Simmons was a toy photographer for Kenner throughout a much-beloved era, the original trilogy era. A couple months ago, he published his third book detailing some of his terrific work for the Star Wars Kenner line, this one aptly named Volume 3: 1983-85, which covers the Return of the Jedi toy line as well as Power of the Force (POTF) and the short-lived Droids and Ewoks lines. Like his first two volumes, which covered Star Wars and the Empire Strikes Back, Volume 3 features well-known and never-before-seen examples of his photography during the last years of the original Kenner Star Wars toy line. The book was part of a Kickstarter program, which I happily supported. Myself and around 300 others supported the publishing of this book, and we were gifted with another wonderful bundle of nostal

The Bearded Trio Gift Idea #1 - Luke Skywalker's Tauntaun Magnet

Christmas Gift Idea - Tauntaun Fridge Magnet. Christmas gift ideas?  I know it's only October but starting early gives everyone time to prepare and have a little less stress in their life.  So, here's our first gift idea for fans of The Bearded Trio.  It could be from Star Wars, Indiana Jones or any movie related to The Bearded Trio.  We may even include a soundtrack or two and that may not even be a John Williams score because I know you are all lovers of movie scores in general.  Also, we're only going to include gifts that are available to all and we are going to keep it realistic.  So don't expect us recommending a Star Wars-themed holiday for $6000.  These will likely be stocking-fillers and not break the bank.  Lastly, these are genuinely recommended by us and not us trying to get freebies or had the product for free.  If we did, we will let you know and then we will only recommend it if we think it's any good. Anyway, to kick things off we have a gift idea fr
