#148 – JAR JAR BINKS MUST DIE (Guest: Dan Kimmel)

Fellow film critic Dan Kimmel joins John and me to discuss his Hugo nominated book JAR JAR BINKS MUST DIE. We get to talking about why Mr. Binks must be put down, of course, plus the current state of science fiction in film, and classics such as INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (’56, ’78 and ’93), the original STAR WARS, METROPOLIS, FORBIDDEN PLANET, E.T: THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL and more. And I again go slightly ballistic over George Lucas’ betrayal of the galaxy far far away, the kind of thing that makes podcasting fun.
