Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out and if you haven't seen the movie yet then stop listening to this week's podcast at the 18 minute mark. Because my guest, Zach Rymer of Bleacher Report MLB, and I go in deep on Episode VII and what's to come in 17 months with Episode VIII hits movie theaters.
But, if you don't care about Star Wars this podcast is still for you! Zach and I spend the first half talking about what's been going on so far in the baseball offseason. We spend time on the juggernaut that is the Chicago Cubs. And speculate on whether the Pittsburgh Pirates can fill the holes that were made when the club let go of some veterans.
The month's humongous sci-fi premiere has arrived with the big-screen debut of the Star Trek Beyond trailer, and PTBN's Brothers of Discussion, Glenn & Scott Butler, are ON IT. What is there to look forward to, or not, in Star Trek XIII? Other topics covered include the balance of action and ideas in Star Trek movies, Kirk's characterization, the new uniforms, and the Hater Brigade.
Following that, the BOD give their thoughts on John Williams' new score to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Where does it lie on the spectrum between the trilogy and prequel scores? Does every Williams action score from the last fifteen years sound the same? How do the new themes measure up? The actual movie might come up as well.
Check the show notes at placetobenation.com for YouTube embeds of the trailer and the entire Star Wars album. Also, a blanket SPOILER WARNING applies to all topics of discussion.
