Episode 91: the SzG Star Wars Holiday Special

Welcome back dear listener!  This episode we are joined by returning guests TK and Mando as we again skip out on the theatrical releases, we are waiting till next weekend to see the final Hobbit movie.  Instead we review this weeks Streaming Review of "Snowpiercer." The rest of our show this week is a round table discussion on Star Wars and where we see it going as well as delve into the past a bit.

There has been a lot said about this movie, some say it is a life changing movie while others say it is a train wreck (yup, we love puns).  I can say pretty confidently that while neither of us were really blown away by the movie we both enjoyed it enough to give it 3 stars.  There is surprisingly a lot happening on this train with some social commentary about class systems, ecological changes and humanity in general.  Not all of it is really heavy handed but it isn't subtle either.  The movie has a really strange feel to it that I find hard to describe besides that at times it can go from being really comical with the main character that Tilda Swinton plays to the admissions of what Chris Evans character did to survive in the beginning.  I would say that the movie is worth the one watch but try and keep your expectations in check as there isn't some life changing message here and the ending really falls flat.

Next week we have Knights of Badassdom as our next streaming review to give us a bit of silly in our lives.
