NHC: November 6, 2016 – “A New Hope” for Episode 4

It’s back to the start! “Rogue One” opens in just 6 weeks, and butts up to what started it all: Star Wars. (“A New Hope” to you kids.) In fact, we’ve got a kid on the show! Let’s see what Generation Z feels about a movie made nearly 3 decades before he was.

Also, Steve talks on this one!

Revenge of the Sith: Paint by Numbers?

NHC: August 28, 2016 – Revenge of the Sith Retrospective

Salutations, fellow Herders! On this episode, the Council discusses the final film of the George Lucas era: Revenge of the Sith. Is it a paint-by-numbers conclusion to the prequel era, or is it something more inspired? Jon, as usual, defends its virtues, while AJ isn’t so sure – and Steve, well… Steve can’t make up his mind.
