Well it was inevitable that a Star Wars movie would show up at some point. Star Wars fandom is certainly one that can be all over the place, but every era has it's fans. However with this entry we step outside of the numbered films and take a look at what I consider to be the most under appreciated Star Wars film, Solo: A Star Wars Story. While not a perfect film I think Solo is one that gets better every time I watch it. Returning guest Allen Kesinger brings his Star Wars love to the conversation as we determine if Solo is a good movie, or just a cash grab.

The mid 2000s was an interesting time in film. I feel there was a lot of different things being attempted during that era a lot of the movies come out kind of hit and miss. Without A Paddle is a movie I didn't think much about when it came out. I watched it, I enjoyed it, I moved on. Today I sit down with guest Nic Woolfe as we revist this 2000s comedy with a stellar cast and see if it's better than we remember or just another forgotten film.

Paul Verhoeven is maybe the king of the cult classic, and Starship Troopers is perhaps the most self aware of his blockbusters. A movie that was misunderstood when it was released, it later gained a large cult following that was strong enough to spawn multiple sequels, video games, and even animated movies. Today I sit down with Victor Grubbs  as we discuss the one of the best cult classics of all time. Do you want to learn more? Then give it a listen!

So this was something that has been in the works four a couple years now. During the run of my previous podcast a friend of mine, and former guest Brandon Prosek, wrote and produced a play called How Does That Make You Feel? Shortly after the play wrapped we talked about doing a retrospective on the process and through circumstances just never got around to it. Well that day has finally come!
