So a few people around the Gabbing Geek offices are pretty excited today about going to see The Force Awakens. Unfortunately I have to stay and get the gremlins out of the servers and reconfigure the Watson Finder™ as it is clearly not working, and won’t be seeing the movie until Sunday. (Yes, my Geek Card status is definitely in question.)
After the break, to cleanse the pallet and prepare for the new film, Honest Trailers and How It Should Have Ended tackle the last Star Wars film that was released.
Unless you’ve been living in a hole for the past year or so, you know there’s a new Star Wars coming out next week.
To do something with that, I’m doing a rewatch and have invited the other Geeks to share their two cents on the previous six movies. We’ll have one a day starting tomorrow with The Phantom Menace (skipping the weekend) and end with Return of the Jedi next Thursday.
So, hey, see what we have to say about the most important movie series in the universe. That statement may be a bit of a hyperbole. Schedule after the cut.
Movie posters are iconic pieces of art but it is amazing how much the titles and font are part of the visual appeal. We check out what the posters look like with the text stripped away and only the visual to sell the story.
Amber Arden, you are my hero. Not only did you embody the perfect Sith Lord, but you also captured the beauty and innocence of Snow White! HOW DID YOU DO THAT!!! ARRRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHH!!! All the feels! I don’t know about you, but I’m super impressed with this amazing cosplay. Amber first debuted this mashup at the Star Wars celebration in Anaheim a few months ago. Want to see more? Check out glowing light sabers and Star Wars friends after the break:
Nothing is better than watching Star Wars on a Friday afternoon….except maybe all the Star Wars films…at once! Yes that’s right people – all 2+ hours of the film were captured and merged together in this larger than life, out of this galaxy experience that you don’t want to miss. Epic doesn’t even come close to describing this – but don’t take my word for it, see for yourself:
This week on the podcast, those darn Gabbing Geeks discussed how to fix disappointing stories. They also discussed pop culture mothers after Mother’s Day, but I don’t have anything to add there. They also discussed feminist action heroes, but that might be the work of a future column.
Just go see Mad Max: Fury Road if you haven’t already.
But I’m going to take a moment to discuss how to fix a certain infamous set of prequels.
