Happy holidays to all, and welcome back to The Cage Match—the monthly comparative movie review podcast! Kick back and relax as I join ‘forces’ with my good friend Justin McArthur (of Three Word Slogan fame) as we discuss that most potent of all cultural touchstones: the new Star Wars film.
To give The Force Awakens (2015) its due, we’ve done something a little different! We’ve broken formula, and opted to compare this new iteration of the Star’s War against the other opening salvos, A New Hope (1977) and The Phantom Menace (1998).
Haven’t seen the latest Star Wars film? Not to fret! We’ve kept the first part of this podcast 100% spoiler-free. I mean, yeah, it spoils A New Hope and The Phantom Menace, but come on guys.
Just to reiterate: Part 1 contains ZERO spoilers for The Force Awakens.
Whereas Parts 2 & 3 ARE BASICALLY NOTHING BUT SPOILERS. (Also we flagged it as a two part podcast in the podcast itself, but it actually ended up being three. It’s a Christmas miracle!)
Some of the topics we discuss this month include:
- Boss Nass
- (seriously, he comes up several times)
