Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first official on screen expanded universe movie that we have received. Since Disney told us that the 30+ years of EU that we have grown up with is no longer canon, did Disney do the former Extended Universe justice? (more…)

10 years after the end of the Prequel Trilogy, we have a continuation of the Star Wars that we all know and love. But, was it any good?

What it the Empire? Was it the Rebel Alliance? No one knows who and why…
We provide the clues, you decide!

Neo returns to the podcast!
To celebrate his return from not really being gone, Troy and Neo sit down at Uncommon HQ to talk about their hopes and fears for Star Wars: Episode VII. Because of the flop that was Phantom Menace, doubt and fear are only natural.
Will it be so good that it makes ROTJ look like crap? Will it be so bad that it makes Episode I look like Empire Strikes Back?
In a few months, we shall have our answers…
Listen below and enjoy!

It was recently this writer’s privilege and pleasure to have a chat with the actor, stuntman, and circus performer, Felix Silla. This was during the Zurko Promotions, All Night Flea Market, in Wheaton, Illinois.

During the interview, Mr. Silla spoke of some of his experiences in the film industry. (more…)
