SOS_OffSeasonLogo_1

A GAME OF THRONES PODCAST THAT IS TALKING ABOUT OTHER GREAT POP CULTURE DURING THE OFF SEASON

(Usually) With Joanna Robinson from Vanity Fair, Dave Gonzales of Thrillist.com, and Neil Miller from Film School Rejects!

Welcome to another off season tour episode of A STORM OF SPOILERS!

This week, we finally manage to assemble all three hosts – because Joanna is able to call in – to discuss Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049. We start with "We've Talked About This Before…" with some amazing eagle based Game of Thrones news and reactions to the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer. Then – onto the main show – All three rewatched the original Blade Runner in Final or Director's Cut, then they all dig into Blade Runner 2049, directed by Denis Villeneuve. Are these good movies or great movies? Cult classics or masterpieces? Replicants or artificial significant others? Be warned – once we start talking about Blade Runner 2049 we talk about ALL of Blade Runner 2049.

Approximate Timecodes:

20:40 – Blade Runner

38:13 – Blade Runner 2049 SPOILERS!

This week, all four hosts converge on the night of the new The Last Jedi trailer to talk about…Rick and Morty fans making fools out of themselves for a McDonald's promotion, that trailer that we watched right before we started recording. Then, we cap it all off with a FULL SPOILER review of Blade Runner 2049 where the Daves have a rare team up.

Can Disney make Lupita Nyong’o happen?

Katey, David and Da7e are down a Patches/Said and instead take some time to reflect on D23 and the the apparent attempt of Disney to increase representation in their films. Then, Katey has some summer movie quote trivia one David is more prepared for than the other. Finally, in a segment three that Patches can’t listen to, we use Han Solo and Clouds of Sils Maria as a jumping off point to talk about good performances from aging actors that acknowledge what has come before.

68 – If Star Wars Was Streaming, Why Go Anywhere Anymore?

IMG_0500

And why the answer might be film festivals.

This week, Katey, Da7e, David and Patches are coming off that week with the Star Wars trailer. OK, Patches isn’t watching any Star Wars publicity, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t everywhere. Katey, Patches and David go to Tribecca Film Festival and only physically share the same space during a George Lucas event. Is this the year we finally deem Tribecca worthy? Then, Katey think she’s knows about Harrison Ford’s comeback because she’s seen Age of Adeline. Finally, with things increasingly made available in live stream, VOD or on the, is it worth going anywhere anymore? The answer is yes, but the scope might be narrower than you think.
