One One Eight: The Rise of Skywalker footage One Shot
Recorded on 8/28/19
We record this episode late at night and we get a little slap happy.
We dissect nearly frame by frame the current footage of Star WarsEpisode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. We posit our hopes, extrapolations, and our truly wild theories. Chris is the MVP as he poses the most mind-melty theory Andrew and Patrick have heard yet.
The link below takes you to the official starwars.com Episode IX page. Watch the footage for yourself and share your theories with us. We’d love to hear them.
This episode is extra long for your extra enjoyment. We catch up on Star Wars and geek related news. We lament the worst line in the history of our favorite film franchise (and maybe the history of cinema). Chris is excited to learn of the return of one of our favorite Showtime shows, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels. He also can’t seem to quit a show he finds deeply flawed. Andrew and Chris sell the Patrick on the Netflix series, Mindhunter. The Brothers spend much of the episode discussing Tarantino’s latest fairy tale epic, Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood.
This episode is unexpectedly epic. We cover geek ground from The Boys on Prime Video to Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy to the works of Quentin Tarantino. We discuss Spider-man Far From Home (finally). Patrick has seen Hobbes and Shaw and he tries not to spoil (or ruin) it for the rest of us. Andrew watches Blade Runner: The Final Cut in a cinema for the first time and realizes he has never seen this version of the film. Chris and Andrew shout Patrick down for his staunch belief in the most inane of theories associated with Ridley Scott’s opus. Christopher Nolan’s soon to be epic Tenet is teased ever so briefly and we encourage everyone listening to read up on The Manson Family murders before they see Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood. We stand is true amazement as we review the climax of The Golden Compass. Pullman brings the opening part of his trilogy to a dazzling finish.
We choose The Subtle Knife for the next read through on the BrothersGeek Book Club. Chapters 1-4 are due by next episode.
Trivia is Harry Potter themed and proves as challenging as Andrew hoped.
