  4. Profound! Every so often, a movie comes around that truly redefines “cinema.” We watched:

    Yes, Akton’s Dollar General brand lightsaber was offensive, but I had far more issues with the weapon Stella Star wielded for the majority of the movie. It was essentially an entire rifle made out of a bayonet. The logistics of firing such a weapon are beyond me. It seems to me as soon as you pulled the trigger, the recoil would slice your space fingers right the fuck off. (I could post a screen shot, but this image is far better.)

    Yes, but space Jean Valjean might also be in there because he stole space bread for his family. How do you feel about that?

    I’ve mentioned this before, but back when they announced Rhinestone, my brain heard “Rhinestone Cowboy,” which turned it to Urban Cowboy. Anyway, I watched most of that depressing turd before I realized what I had done - lol

    Was anyone else upset that in the process of escaping the slave pits, Stella Star basically got a ton of innocent people killed? Don't get me wrong, I'm super happy she escaped a life of slavery, but it might have been nice if our hero had helped at least one other person get away. At the very least, it would have been cool if her casualty count hadn't been quite so excessive.

    Episode 224: Starcrash: LIVE!

    I’ll be the first to admit, I might not have caught everything that was going on in this movie, but if I’m not mistaken, I’m pretty sure Emperor Edelweiss’ plan at the end of the movie is to fake the death of his entire fleet, but then immediately attack so as to blow any kind of tactical advantage such a ploy might offer. I’m really not sure how that plan accomplished anything other than weakening their own space navy.

    Regarding the name “Elle,” in the Star Wars novelizations, the droids’ designations are similarly written phonetically. So R2-D2 is spelled Artoo-Detoo and C-3PO is See-Threepio. This is also true in a lot of Star Wars media if you watch with closed captioning. I would guess this is to give their characters “proper” names rather than just serial numbers to help the audience better identify them as beings rather than things. So I think the hosts are correct and “Elle” is supposed to be the phonetically spelled version of the letter “L” - although he must have been one of the first off the production line to have a one letter serial number. This explanation makes even more sense if the screenwriter was only familiar with Star Wars through the novels. He was following a precedent.

    American Graffiti

    If The Godfather movies weren’t so long, I probably would too. Together they’re almost 6 1/2 hours! That’s basically half the Halloween franchise! HDTGM I can justify a little better. I’ve already seen Star Crash and I’m guessing that the Friday the 13th live episode they did will be the Halloween episode.

    American Graffiti

    Same. I watched AG because it was relatively short, but The Godfathers are a bit long. Maybe I’ll rewatch them next month.

    American Graffiti

    Right, which is why I said it sometimes helps. My point was more, and perhaps I didn’t explain it as well as I should have, if you watch a movie and it doesn’t work for you, you shouldn’t have to keep watching it until it does. Like if I don’t like a movie, I don’t want someone to say, “Yeah, but on your third or fourth rewatch it starts to get good!” If I don’t like it, or it didn’t “grab” me for whatever reason, I’m not going to devote 6-8 more hours of my life watching it again and again until it finally does. I don’t have the time for that. It’s like if I don’t like a television show and someone says, “It starts off slow, but it gets great at episode six!” Fuck that. I’m not going to waste my time sitting through something mediocre with just the promise it might get better. If it’s capable of being good by episode six, then it was capable of being good with the first episode. Like I said to Taylor, I only rewatched it for the podcast, and the reason I asked if she rewatched it was to see if her opinion stayed the same.

    American Graffiti

    Absolutely! It’s all just nostalgia porn.

    American Graffiti

    No, I totally get that. The only reason I watched it again was for Unspooled, and I was super apathetic about the prospect. I really wouldn’t recommend watching it again if you don’t have the mind to. In my mind, a “good” movie shouldn’t require multiple rewatches. I mean, sometimes it helps, but in my opinion, if it’s truly good, then it should grab you the first time.
