Episode #295 – House (1977)

This week on the podcast Bryan, Chewie, and Jon discuss the delightfully bonkers Japanese Horror Comedy film House, written and directed by Nobuhiko Obayashi with input by his daughter Chigumi. Truly, it’s a movie that has to be seen to be believed and it’s quite the treat. We recommend going in as blind as you can, and if you haven’t seen it before our episode, do so and then resume. We’re anxious to talk about it with you!

A Hype to Remember : Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977)

All of us here at After The Hype love Star Wars, because… well… it’s STAR WARS!

In honor of Star Wars Day (May 4th) we will be releasing one “Hype to Remember” a day to cover all 8 of the released Star Wars films!  I’ll kick things off with STAR WARS: EPISODE IV – A NEW HOPE!

Star Wars is so much more than a movie.  It’s a way of life.  I have no idea when the first time I saw Star Wars was, it’s always just been a part of me.  I wish I was around to see this trailer in theaters for the first time.  It’s such a joy to watch.

They have no idea how to market this movie!  Is it a fantasy? An action movie? They just keep telling us how great it is, then throwing in a random clip.  Clearly they didn’t have James Earl Jones voice track in yet.  They didn’t have colors on the light sabers.  The whole thing looks like a cheap 70’s sci-fi flop.  But still, somehow, looks totally amazing!  This trailer had a tough job to do, and it does it perfectly!  I can only imagine seeing this once, maybe, then seeing the finished product in theaters!  My mind would have been blown!

I love this trailer, it’s the perfect set up to the perfect movie!
