SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY is in theaters, and Sam and Adam jump on the podcast to discussion. Did the new Han and Chewie measure up to the old Han and Chewie? Why can’t Lando say Han correctly? They also dive into how this film fits into the growing Star Wars universe. This is a spoiler-filled discussion after the first 8 minutes or so, so beware.
In 2001, filmmaker Peter Jackson launched his epic trilogy of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings with The Fellowship of the Ring. Not only did it bring fantasy into the forefront of popular culture, it also changed epic filmmaking and made characters like Frodo and Aragorn household names. In this episode, I’m joined by Dawn Pink to discuss that first film. We discuss what made it so great, the changes Jackson made from the original text, and how casting (and a little luck) made it into one of the greatest films of all time.
Avengers: Infinity is in theaters, thrilling fans and making money. I get together with guests D.M. Cain and Alex Thomas to discuss the latest Marvel spectacle.
