Ever wanted to have two nerds yaking in your ear while watching Star Wars? Cool. This may be for you.
For the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope, we decided not to do a normal episode of Get Off My Podcast. We want to watch Star Wars with YOU!
This is a “commentary” of sorts, for the greatest movie of all time Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope. Don’t think of this as a traditional commentary but more like hanging with a couple Star Wars nerds and watching a movie.
Instructions lie within the podcast. But I will tell you that we are using the 2004 remastered DVD release of the film that runs 123 minutes. We start watching at the 00.00 mark (after the menu screen), this will be setup once you start listening.
Also something of note, this is not designed to be listened to without watching Star Wars at the same time so you may want to sit this one out if you don’t have the movie in front of ya.
Excited to watch Han Solo teach a farm boy some new tricks with you. Let’s do it!
When we say we cover all movies Harrison Ford has been in, we meant it. Nothing proves that more than this episode.
Can we make these two movies interesting enough to podcast about? Only one way to find out. One of these movies, Crossing Over and Extraordinary Measures, just might surprise you and could contain one of the more underrated performances of Harrison’s career.
We also get into some current Harrison Ford news (there’s plenty of Force Awakens stuff going on) and learn about some fan fiction that could end up being Indiana Jones 5.
Harrison finally stops his run of boy-scout rolls and gets back to a lovable gruff rogue with the character Quinn Harris in Six Days and Seven Nights. Was Anne Heche and good fit to play against Harrison? Will Ross ever not be Ross? How many times has Harrison been in a cockpit? What happens when Jango Fett goes after Han Solo?
All good questions and we attempt to answer them this episode.
We also break down Harrison’s appearance at Comi-Con, The Force Awakens, the new Han Solo film and who could pull off playing a Harrison Ford roll. AND Mikey comes to George Lucas’s defense…again.
The 1980s of Harrison’s career (maybe the strongest decade of any actor ever) end with Indy being called “Junior” by Sean Connery in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Pretty damn good movie for Harrison and the world and we break it down.
We get it all in the one, River Phoenix works in a Harrison movie again, this time playing a young version of Indy instead of his son. Brody and Sallah return, Professor Jones is back, the hottest Indy Girl ever, Indy meets Hitler, more Germans, and that dude the drove a AT-AT on Hoth and told Darth Vader it was cool to come down to the planet now.
Once we get done with Last Crusade (sorry, it takes a while) we get through some recent Ford news including the Age Of Adoline trailer and some teaser trailer thingy with a R2-D2 Beach Ball and THE FREAKING MILLENNIUM FALCON!!
It’s pretty much nobody’s favorite of the Indiana Jones movies, but at least it’s better than Crystal Skull: Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom.
Our Temple episode finds us talking about what dark demons Lucas and Spielberg were facing during production, how Harrison Ford jacked up his back, where the hell did Dan Akroyd come from, and his ripping someone’s heart out a PG activity.
Also, Harrison is back on set for Episode VII and we go over some rumored plot points for Han Solo and Chewie.
All this…and fortune and glory, kid…fortune and glory.
