Episode 385 – The Reel Changes of the Prequel Trilogy

It’s a new year of Blast Points and we’re starting out with a “reel” classic as we discuss the reel changes of the prequel trilogy!   When episodes one, two and three were shown in theaters, every twenty minutes the reel of film would change and the stories flow in shockingly similar ways!  Join us as we look at what scene each film was at for each reel change and go over the many parallels!  

PLUS – we’re talking about the surprise news of THE MANDALORIAN AND GROGU movie and AHSOKA season 2!   So take your vitamins, celebrate the love and listen today!

Episode 295 – Reel Star Wars – The Cue Marks of the OT

We’re back with our 6th year and it’s the episode everyone has been waiting for – THE CUE MARKS OF THE ORGINAL TRILOGY!  Join us as we explore these markings on the film that signified the end of a reel and reveal how they actually reveal clues to that very specific Star Wars storytelling structure!   When does each story take a dramatic turn?  When are our heroes in over their heads?  What is it about that unique pace and structure of the Star Wars saga that makes it so special?  AND does it all have to do with pizza rolls?!  So, celebrate the love, don’t mix up reels 4 and 5 in NYC and listen today!
