"A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away..." Well, more precisely, it was fifteen years ago that Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was released into theaters. While feelings on that film range from "meh" to flames on the side of one's face, the MovieFilm guys decide to forego that well-worn conversation and instead look back at the worldwide phenomenon that lead up to and followed the first Star Wars film to be released after the instantly iconic original trilogy.
But that's not all! With Sean out this week, Zaki and Brian are joined by fellow podcaster Parvez Ahmed as they look at the Johnny Depp flop Transcendence, consider Richard Donner's insistence that a Spielberg-inspired sequel for The Goonies is in the works, examine Star Wars scribe Simon Kinberg's comments on considering the Expanded Universe for the upcoming films, and discuss the trailers for X-Men: Days of Future Past and Gone Girl. Plus, listen to Zaki's exclusive interview with writer/director/star John Turturro about his new film Fading Gigolo!
