Star Wars Rewatch: The Phantom Menace


The Force Awakens opens on the 18th.  Star Wars fans can barely contain themselves.  They got the original band back together (mostly), and the epic saga continues with a new generation.

To better prepare ourselves, we here at Gabbing Geek are doing a Star Wars rewatch, with a movie covered a day until the 18th rolls around, skipping weekends.

Here’s our first installment on Episode I:  The Phantom Menace.

Trailer Time: Sea Wars


Everyone seems to love Star Wars.  Even the U.S. Navy.  See behind the cut for how the crew of the U.S.S. Eisenhower did their own take on one of the Episode VII trailers.

And if you’re an American, try not to think about how this is your tax dollars at work.

Some of us can’t wait for December.  Because there’s a big, wrapped, Geek Christmas gift coming:  Star Wars Episode VII:  The Force Awakens.

That’s right.  There’s a teaser behind the cut.  Remember, it’s a teaser, so if you sneeze, you’ll miss the whole thing.

Podcast Reaction: The Ryan Edition

Ryan likes this movie.

I’ve been doing podcast reactions for a while now, even before I got tapped to write for this site.  In that time, I have picked on Jenny and Watson quite a bit.  Why not?  Jenny is three ducks in a woman suit who doesn’t know who Max von Sydow is despite his memorable roles in both The Exorcist and Flash Gordon–leading to my theory that someone is finally continuing Flash Gordon‘s “To be continued” tag when Ming the Merciless is revealed to be the bad guy in Star Wars Episode VII.  Watson just has that one picture that makes it rather easy.  Heck, it doesn’t matter what other pictures I use, that picture will be the one that appears on Facebook for any article I write and use it for.

But aside from pointing out just how much Ryan likes the awful, awful Krull, I don’t pick on him that much.

I’m not going to pick on him now, because this post is an intervention.
