Movie Meltdown - Episode 334
As our epic Star Wars Summit continues, we settle in with three old-school Star Wars fans - and take this discussion to the next level. Just when you think we've said all that can be said about the Star Wars universe... the summit awakens.
And as we question the validity of The Church of the Force, we also discuss Temple of Doom, Peter Cushing, Batman guns, Mon Mothma, nebulous powers, the coincidences are more forgiving if the ride is fun, Game of Thrones, adding gravitas, time travel and prophecies, The Black Hole, the Falcon's GPS, physical things, the internet getting their panties in a twist, the light was buggin' him, The Garden Weasel, The Wrath of Khan, the red arm, Ewan McGregor, Harry Potter books, I didn't want to get Phantom Menaced, geographically speaking about the galaxy, Uncle Chewy, Raise the Titanic, terrified of going in the bathtub for years, binge-watching media, breaking into the Naboo castle, we've had years and years to work out theories, did they shoot from the fringe, non-osha standard, they have a play set for everything, Art Carney, octopus monsters, Bill and Ted, the homeless fighting our battles for us, an insane space ship captain that zombie-fies and robo-fies his crew, The Clone Wars, having a religious experience, I Love Lucy, I love capitalism, Gwendoline Christie, Lord of the Rings, the universe expands, Max von Sydow, beefier lightsabers, Snoke, 21 became a bad-ass, Jenny Agutter, Y-Wing engine pod covers, don't go out in public, they didn't have the right screws, impact blast, Space Perry Mason, Godwookie, being conflicted and the cowboy from The Blues Brothers.
Spoiler Alert: Again... there will be major spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens - and all the Star Wars movies for that matter. So just go watch the franchise and you'll be good.
