Notes

Film

  • Starts with Zam diving down in her speeder, and ends with Anakin and Obi-Wan being shocked by a power coupling.

Podcast

  • Callback to The Phantom Menace (gutsy move, George).
    • Ring theory?
      • Maybe this is supposed to be the asteroid field scene. That makes Obi-Wan || C-3PO.
  • "I forgot" exposition.
  • Referenced:Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
  • Obi-Wan's nemesis: pink energy.
  • Air vs. space travel.
  • Anakin's maniacal laugh.
    • It's not a human laugh, but he recognizes that this is where a human would be laughing.
  • Blade Runner video game level.
  • With the new digital technology, the human actors look worse than the CGI backgrounds.
  • CG is designed to emulate model shots.
  • Zam is not a great bounty hunter. She must be new, and Jango must be training her.
  • Referenced: "Greased Lightnin'" from Grease (album version).
  • Changes from the 2002 theatrical cut to the 2011 blu-ray.
  • In theory, when you describe what the movie is about, it sounds like it would be good.
  • Shoutout to former (and future) guest of the show Jacob Sirof.
  • Respect to George Lucas making something unique that no one wants—rather than a slickly-produced crowd-pleaser.
    • George needed one or more of the Unsung Heroes from the Original Trilogy to keep him in check.
  • Plug for http://duelinggenre.com.
  • Referenced: "Suicide is Painless", which was the opening theme for M*A*S*H.
