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.]

Theme Song: “Bankin’” by Bronson Scott

Hobo Radio 479 – Solo: A Star Wars Story: A Podcast Review

In this spoiler-filled episode, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle share their thoughts on Solo: A Star Wars Story. Both of them were pleasantly surprised by the film (and eat a fair amount of crow for all the shade they threw at the film in the weeks leading up to the release). So, if you’ve seen the film, nerd out with our dynamic duo over Solo.

Was Donald Glover’s Billy Dee Williams’ impression distracting? Why did the film underperform at the box office? How did Ron Howard pull off an enjoyable Han Solo adventure? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – ““Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Cantina Rag” by Jackson F. Smith
