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 4 – Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker

Once again, Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre are rewatching a maligned film in hopes of finding a silver lining. They are finishing out the month of May with Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker, the final chapter in what has been dubbed the Skywalker Saga.

Joel is fired up this week. As listeners of Hobo Radio may remember, he was not a fan of this film when it was originally released (you can hear that episode here) and his opinion hasn’t softened on his second viewing. He and Andy vent their frustrations with Rise of Skywalker and then, miraculously, find its silver lining.

All bad films have a silver lining. 

At least, that’s the theory Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre are hoping to prove in this new podcast. Murphy and McIntyre are revisiting maligned films and seeing what good they can find in them.

In their third episode, they are continuing to revisit the Star Wars prequels. This time, it’s Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, which Joel enjoys considerably more than Andy does. However, together they will find a silver lining.

All bad films have a silver lining.

At least, that’s the theory Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre are hoping to prove in this new podcast. Murphy and McIntyre are revisiting maligned films and seeing what good they can find in them.

In their first episode, in honor of May the 4th, they are rewatching the first of George Lucas’ prequel films, Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. Andy maintains that it is somewhat unfairly disliked by Star Wars fans. Joel isn’t so sure. But together, they will find the film’s silver lining.
