Episode 133: An Old Hope

Hello everyone and thanks for coming back for another episode of Sprecken ze Geek.   
This Episode marks the 4th week on our march onto The Force Awakens and our first (in a while anyways) foray into the original trilogy with our "streaming review" of Episode IV: A New Hope. This week we go through the announcements from Playstation Experience and our experiences at this years Fanfest. Funny enough another little company called Warner Bros also decided to drop another trailer for a little indy film called Batman V Superman, so we also discuss our thoughts on the trailer.  If you wanted to avoid possible spoiler talk about BvS skip from 38:34 to 52:47 and you'll skip right past it all.

It's been easily a couple of years since I've gone back and watched any of the original trilogy but after watching Episode IV: A New Hope I have to admit this one is a lot slower than I remember.  Not saying the movie is bad, but it is just paced slowly and there's a few logical errors that leave you scratching your head.  That said, this is the movie that quite literally started it all.  Bat made a good point that the similarities between Anakin and Luke are kind of crazy.  Both are very, very whiny which means it must be in the jeans.  Leia obviously takes after her mother.  With all it's good and bad (those 'updated' additions aren't so spiffy) we still enjoyed the movie and would give it a 3/5.

Next week we're continuing our journey into the original trilogy of Star Wars with Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.  I'm really excited to watch this one again simply because I remember loving it.  But as with the rest of the movies we've watched the it's been a couple of years since I've last seen it.  You know the drill, Trailer is down below if want to refresh you memory.

For the next 2 weeks (holy shit only 2 weeks left!) our streaming reviews are going to be taken up by the Star Wars movies but we still want you to send us your reviews of this weeks choice or even suggestions for future episodes streaming review on Hulu, Netflix or HBOgo.  We will happily bank these for after The Force Awakened has come out.
