A Long Time Ago, in a Podcast Far Far Away… Dahhh Dah – da da da DAHH DAHH. Da da da DAHHH DAHH. Dun Dun Dun DAAHHHH. Ok, enough of that. So we finally did it… Our first foray into the fascinating world of Star Wars. Make no mistake, we talk about other movies too, but the main thrust this episode is that proverbial galaxy far, far…well lets just say it ain’t close by. We decided to start our journey into one of cinemas most celebrated, and hotly debated, series of films by taking a look at what has made this saga part of our everyday lives and so permeated the lexicon: The Fans. And who better to guide us through this subculture than Documentary Filmmaker Chris Macht.
Macht’s film “The Force Among Us (http://www.theforceamongus.com)” is a veritable love letter to the fans, and also serves as an entertaining look behind the curtain of Star Wars fandom. It’s a good watch from any perspective and is certainly the best gift for the Star Wars fan that has it all. High marks from CinemaJaw. With Chris Macht as our guide we explore the surface of all 6 films and ask some questions, both serious and silly. You decide! We have only begun on the topic of Star Wars… we will return to it in future episodes for sure.
We also have all the usual goodies: Trivia, I for and I, movie headlines, and even a new segment where Matt and Ry trade movies from their respective collections. Whew…. Enjoy!
