Hobo Radio Interview – Dana James Jones, director of Star Wars: Revenge of the Incels

Subscribe:


Dana James Jones made his Brick/Star Wars parody mashup Revenge of the Incels with one viewer in mind – writer/director Rian Johnson. Thanks to social media, Johnson saw the video and loved it. And so did a lot of other people.

The film follows the plot of Johnson’s film noir Brick, but the protagonist in Revenge of the Incels is Johnson himself – and he’s trying to get to the bottom of who killed Kelly Marie Tran. This week, Joel Murphy has an in-depth chat with Jones about how the film was conceived, shot and released out into the world. They also talk about Jones’ run-in with Johnson’s predecessor J.J. Abrams, Jones’ first Star Wars fan film (which he shot at age 10) and their predictions for Episode IX.

This week’s music:

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

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle started co-hosting Hobo Radio on July 18, 2008. This week, they celebrate 10 years of podcasting together.

They take a look at how the podcasting game has changed over the last decade, the state of DC Extended Universe films and the underwhelming filmography of Star Wars: Episode IX screenwriter Chris Terrio.

This week’s music:

In this spoiler-filled episode, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle share their thoughts on Solo: A Star Wars Story.

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.
