"Star Wars" fans are getting their second feature-length movie in less than a year with "Solo: A Star Wars Story." But after a mixed (if passionate) response to "The Last Jedi," how will "Solo" be received, particularly given the replacement of co-directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller with Ron Howard, and a Han Solo that isn't played by Harrison Ford?
In this episode of the podcast, Adam Thomas and Andy Farnsworth give a SPOILER-FREE review of the movie, which tells a tale from the youth of Han Solo (played by Alden Ehrenreich), including how he meets his future co-pilot Chewbacca, his first encounter with Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) and the Millennium Falcon.
Today we are excited to welcome Kristian Odland ( One Minute Critic and writer for Geet Tyrant) to the Fan Effect team. He is going to be a great addition. Check out what he has to say in our introduction interview with him.
It was said in days of yore, "Cobra Kai, never die!" ...and it seems they were right as YouTube Red's new series, "Cobra Kai," picks up the characters and story of the hit movie "The Karate Kid" some 30 years later, giving you a different perspective on events you THOUGHT you knew so well.
In this (audio only) episode of the podcast, Andy Farnsworth and Ryan Meeks hold a SPOILER-FILLED discussion of the 10-episode first season of "Cobra Kai," which they both liked way more than they were expecting.
Join them as they talk about whether or not it's a story that's worth telling, whether the callbacks to the 80's movies--and there were plenty--were appropriate or heavy-handed, if they thought Johnny & Daniel were in a believable place as characters, and what they thought of the new characters introduced.
This episode is also available as video thru iTunes & the Apple Podcasts app, as well as thru the KSL OTT app on Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire.
"Cobra Kai" stars William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence, Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso, Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz, Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keane, Mary Mouser as Samantha LaRusso and Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso.
Part two of our review of "Cobra Kai," the new series on YouTube Red. The story follows Johnny Lawrence and Daniel Larusso 34 years after the events of "The Karate Kid."
