Episode #298 – Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

STAR WARS
EPISODE V
THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

It is a dark time for the rebellion…but a pretty friggin’ sweet time for us because we get to talk about The Empire Strikes Back, easily the best Star Wars film ever made. If the last movie captured our imaginations, this one captured our hearts. It cemented our fandom and gave us the best ship in the galaxy: Han and Leia. It also gave us Yoda, Lando Calrissian, Lobot, and perhaps the biggest surprise this side of the galaxy. There’s a reason why this one sits at the top of many SW fan lists. So join us, won’t you?

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!

That’s right, we’re talking the super fun Friday the 13th: Part 7: The New Blood and pointing out all the things that make this such a delightful watch.

6.04: Rapacity in Blue

This week on the podcast Bryan Dressel, Chewie “The Yogi Bear Show” Darsow, and Matt “The Pink Panther” Dykes talk “Rapacity in Blue,” the mid-season episode of season six with all the problems mentioned last week with its serialized storytelling. Lot of details to juggle and sometimes it gets fuzzy what happens where and when. But hey, we get more Blue Morpho so that’s awesome!

Episode #293 – Revenge

And now for something completely unexpected: a rape revenge film that is good, actually, and that turns all its tropes on its head. I know, right? We’re talking about the 2017 film Revenge, from writer/director Coralie Fargeat. She brings a master filmmaker’s touch to an otherwise played out genre and asks us to take a hard look at ourselves. It’s quite the film and we do the best we can breaking down everything about it.

TRIGGER WARNING for discussions of rape and the rape revenge genre.
