Episode 2: Step Away From the Camera, Mr. Lucas

The Nerds reconvene to talk movie magic! Especially the sort that George Lucas has clearly forgotten how to make.

On my recent excursion to Australia, I watched a bunch of movies on the ungodly long flight. Two of these turn into quite the discussion with my fellow nerd Robert: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Yes, there is bitching about the Star Wars prequels in here. There had to be. Because if there’s one thing The Force Awakens taught me, it is that I didn’t actually grow out of Star Wars — the prequels were just so awful, they made me think I had.

Also on the programme: Weird anime series (Excel Saga), feeling awkward watching anime, Blade Runner: The Final Cut, and how to properly eat a pizza in New York!
