Magnolia

With special guest: Evan Jones!

We kick off our first passion review of the year with a film near and dear to actor Evan Jone's heart, Magnolia. A star studded cast of characters dealing with one tear inducing ordeal after another until all that's left to say is "this happens." Ribbit. Enjoy!

The Star Wars Holiday Special

A long time ago in a galaxy far outside of continuity... 

STAR WARS

HOLIDAY SPECIAL

Following the events of A New Hope, Han Solo and Chewbacca travel to the empire occupied 

wookie homeworld to meet up with Chewbacca's family for the celebration of "Life Day". Originally

aired on CBS as a Chistmas Special to fulfill fan hunger for more Star Wars content, but with limited

creative imput from George Lucas, it became a half improvised series of disconnected segments.

Unfortunate, laughable, and largely inexplicable, it stands as an example of a time before The Empire

Strikes Back established a connected universe, when any number of random things were thrown together

to make it look otherworldly and spacey. Movie explorers wondering what value might lie in uncovering

this epic misadventure may find enlightenment here! Listen in...

Turkish Star Wars

Sometime you watch a movie and think, "I swear I've seen that footage somewhere before?" or "Haven't I heard this score in something else?" Yes, the movie world has a long and interesting history reusing elements from other films. Sometimes great care is taken to mask these element so the audience doesn't notice, but then there are those special few who don't seem to care at all. With The Force Awakens just on the horizon we felt it was time to return to a So-Bad-It's-Good movie which brazen takes from the biggest movies of all time. An obscure, low-budget classic known as Turkish Star Wars

The Great Silence

With Special Guest: Matt Allegretti!

Perhaps you've often heard tell of 1000 ways to die in the west? It's fair to say that most of those ways are unpleasant, and you can let your morbid imaginations run wild a bunch there. If you think about it though, one of them has got to be the worst way to go. A death so harsh, so unforgiving, they would have to call it something like... The Great Silence!

The River's Edge

Look Out Jellyheads! A western crashes into a gangster film in this low budget thiller from the 1950s. This morally ambigous tale has more twists and turns than we could have ever anticipated, but it all ends at... The River's Edge!
