ICYMI: "The Mandalorian" Season 2 Trailer

If you haven’t checked Facebook, or Twitter, or any social media today then you may have missed “The Mandalorian” Season 2 trailer unveiling. You can watch it right here, right now. After 7 months of virus’s, protests, election propaganda and all the other 2020 dumpster fires, Baby Yoda is here to save us! There are many burning questions (mostly among Star Wars fans). Is Ahsoka really in this season? What about Bo Katan? Will “Baby Yoda” finally have a real name? As an avid fan (I use “avid” lightly) the one thing I don’t want them to tell us is the species; that’s been Lucas’ [… Click to Continue …]

HMDYK About Voice Dubbing in Star Wars

My motivation behind these posts is to shine a light on some of the unsung, underrated and/or under appreciated actors in the Star Wars universe. I feel like, somewhere in the mire of sequel trilogy discontent, so-called fans were whining about voice dubbing. Actually it might be The Mandalorian. While Pedro Pascal is credited as playing the Mandalorian, he isn’t always the man in the costume. It’s really quite hilarious to be critical of voice dubbing in Star Wars. If you’ve seen a picture of James Earl Jones then you know damn well that man did not squeeze his husky ass into that Darth Vader [… Click to Continue …]

Biggs' Top 5 Movie Trilogy's

Back to the movies. This time, instead of individual movies, let’s talk about trilogy’s. Another hard one to ponder as there are many great trilogy’s. I’m sure a couple of my choices might confound some people. I know at least one of these trilogy’s has been met with quite a bit of criticism but to each their own. My blog, my choice and you don’t have to agree. Also, I know a couple of the items in this list have a 4th movie or will have a 4th movie, however I chose to include them because they were originally a trilogy. So here are my [… Click to Continue …]

Book Review - Dooku: Jedi Lost

Dooku: Jedi Lost by Cavan Scott My rating: I don’t give 3-stars to too many Star Wars books and I almost gave this one 4 stars. Honestly its my fault because I didn’t realize this book is meant to be an audio book. The print form that I read is the scripted version of the audio book; which has its pros and cons. It takes a little getting use to but once you’ve acclimated the book moves pretty fast. There is some nomenclature and acronyms that I didn’t know what they meant. Such as “SOTTO” and “BEAT”. Some of them I could look them up [… Click to Continue …]

HMDYK About Denis Lawson

How much do you know about Denis Lawson? This guy is a much lesser known actor compared to the previous three I covered. In fact Denis Lawson does not have nearly as prolific of a career as Cushing, Lee or Guinness. However, while he isn’t as distinguished as the others, he is a fan favorite of the Star Wars universe. He is known for his role as Wedge Antilles, the ace Rebel pilot. In fact his role in Star Wars is about the only thing Denis Lawson is known for among his 98 credits. Despite all the criticism of Disney for turning the Extended Universe [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Saving Mr. Banks

Saving Mr. Banks Directed By: John Lee Hancock Starring:  Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson Release Year: 2013 My Rating: I realize this movie is 7 years old but nobody is really going to the theater right now so I might as well review something new I’ve watched. Perhaps others on the fence about this movie will finally reach their decision about whether or not to watch it. Tom Hanks must be one of those actors that can be made to look like anybody. It’s an uncanny transformation to be able to go from Fred Rogers to Walt Disney. Personally I think his portrayal as Fred Rogers [… Click to Continue …]
