Has Star Wars Gone to the Dark Side? – Episode 055

November 22, 2015

A long time ago, and in a galaxy far, far away… Luke and his band of rebels became cinema and cultural legends. And forty years later, they are coming back to the big screen. Is the attempt to keep the world of Star Wars alive year after year an example of the worst of Hollywood’s temptations to monetize our nostalgia? Or is giving fans the stories they want to see a good thing? Does The Force Awakens have a chance to be good (if not great)? Brent and Erik take a look at the mega-success of Star Wars.
