Silver Linings Playback 34 – Star Wars Holiday Special

Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre watch maligned movies and find their silver linings. For the month of December, they are watching Christmas movies.

When Silver Linings Playback launched in May, Joel and Andy spent the month watching maligned Star Wars films. So it’s only fitting that they end the year by watching the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special, a made-for-TV movie so reviled that for years the cast refused to talk about it in interviews and George Lucas tried to have all copies destroyed.

[Editor’s Note – While it isn’t officially streaming anywhere, bootleg copies of the special can be found on YouTube, including this link right here.]

Silver Linings Playback 32 – Last Christmas

Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre watch maligned movies and find their silver linings. For the month of December, they are watching Christmas movies.

They kick off the month with Last Christmas, a film that fittingly was released last Christmas. It stars Emilia Clarke as Kate, a Christmas store elf who is having a rough time until she meets the mysterious Tom (Henry Golding), who helps her become a better, more responsible person.

Hobo Radio 423 – Merry XMizzle to you and your fam!

Last year, Joel Murphy and Lars Perwinkle were both in complete agreement about how much they loved Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens. But it seems they both have wildly different opinions on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The duo has a spoiler-free discussion on Rogue One, including where they rank it in the overall Star Wars oeuvre. They also talk about the lucky woman who got Snoop Dogg as her Secret Santa, South Carolina’s ban on porn and Harrison Ford punching people.

What presents did Snoop buy for his Secret Santa recipient? Why can’t Harrison Ford stop punching people? Where does Rogue One rank? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Down Home Christmas” by Cody Joe Hodges

Hobo Radio 373 – Everything is terrible, the world sucks, but we’re going to talk about pop culture

As a brief tribute to Paris, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle talk briefly about all the French have given us.

They also try to figure out why it’s so tough for Hollywood to release movies at seasonally-appropriate times (the latest examples being Victor Frankenstein and The Night Before), discuss the cancellation of Kurt Sutter’s Bastard Executioner and look at the recent string of dead-but-presumed-still-alive TV show protagonists.

Are dramas like The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and The Leftovers in danger of making death meaningless on their shows? Was Kurt Sutter really the one who pulled the plug on his own show? Why is Lars no longer wearing deodorant? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Into the Ether” by Psychadelik Pedestrian
