Notes

Film

  • J-type diplomatic barge.
  • Theomet Danlé.
  • Boraso? He was also in TPM, is it the same character?
  • Natalie Portman is playing Cordé in this scene, which is strange.

Podcast

  • 1950s 'Jet Age' aesthetic.
  • Good filmmaking (show, don't tell) until they go and spoil it with pointless exposition.
  • Ring theory?: This minute is very similar to the opening of The Phantom Menace but there have been no obvious parallels to The Empire Strikes Back so far.
  • Referenced: Supermam II; what common threads are there that connect the actors?
  • Referenced: the Japanese video game Zero Wing.
  • Call out to Nathan Hamill.
  • Naboo starfighters have no landing gear?
  • Listener Projects: Death Star bowling balls.
  • Pete shares a World Trade Center memory.

Meta Minute

Quotes

  • Alex: "Lacks citations", as they say.
  • Pete: He's a really low-grade Wedge.
  • Pete: (as Ric Olié, during the post-credits sting) I was not in this motion picture.
  • Pete: In my experience, there's no such thing as magnets.
