Sci Fi Movie Podcast Star Wars


Hosted by Remi Lavictoire, Ian Fults and Jonathan Colbon

Sci Fi Movie Podcast Star WarsThis week on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, Rem, Jonathan and Ian dig deeper into Star Wars from 1977 and directed by George Lucas.

The Positive:
Of course, Rem, Ian and Jonathan loved it and it turned out to be our longest podcast so far.  Star Wars is a ground breaking film in many ways.  Telling a classic mythological story using state of the art visual and sound effects, Star Wars redefined Science Fiction and has an incredible history and legacy.

The Negative:
We did some nitpicking on some of the special effects and a few of the story elements, but hey, this is Star Wars.

One of the most important Sci-Fi films of our generation.  Apparently, there’s one guy in Duluth Minnesota who hasn’t seen Star Wars yet.  You know who you are. Watch it now, or we’ll come find you…
