This week was full of ups and downs for May the Fourth, or as we like to call it “May the Forks be with You” week. We reviewed our newest movie yet in Rogue One (2016) and then promptly ruined it for ourselves by talking about the Star Wars Holiday Special (1978). Yes, the Holiday Special that George Lucas personally tried to bury forever but we have our ways of digging shit up (it’s on YouTube). Since we hate to suffer alone, we invited our old friend Nick from Neapolitan Radio along for the ride.


Next week will be Anton Yelchin week with Odd Thomas (2013) and The Beaver (2011). Details for this week’s flicks and where to talk to us are below:
