Our father passed away recently, so we thought it only fitting that we revisit the movie he took us to see that got us hooked on Star Wars in the first place! Join us for some fond and humorous remembrances, as well as new takes on the film that started it all: Episode IV, “A New Hope”.
Jon says “The Force Awakens” is a rip-off of “A New Hope” and it keeps him from appreciating it! Our buddy Mark Thrasher says he’s totally wrong about it. Can either of them change the other’s mind??
Everyone remembers their first time… seeing Star Wars! Take a trip down memory lane with us as we discuss our earliest memories of Star Wars fandom, comparing our experiences to modern premieres and how our fandom is sustained.
Hello, Nerfherders! Our guest this time around is the super-prolific, always-entertaining YouTuber, HelloGreedo! We discuss literally every film in the franchise – past, present, and future! We also get into video games, YouTube celebrity, and technical difficulties…
Salutations, fellow Herders! It’s our 40th episode already! Can you believe that?? We figured for this momentous occasion, the Council would try something new (for us) and take an in-depth look at the film that started it all 40 years ago. Listen along as we watch “Star Wars: A New Hope”!
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.
This is our love letter for the film that started it all.
So you think The Phantom Menace rips off A New Hope more than The Force Awakens? Well, you’re wrong! And we’ve already talked about that. It leads us to an article about a person’s first viewing of Episode 1, though, so let’s party like it’s 1999 and talk about that.
Star Wars is the greatest saga of all time – but which movie is the greatest of the bunch?? It often comes down to A New Hope versus its sequel, The Empire Strikes Back. So let’s discuss, shall we?! It’s kinda what we do around here. Also: boobie trees.
