And here we are, one week later with podcast number two. Regarding our discussion of space adventure films: I completely forgot about Interstellar, probably because Sean hadn’t seen it when this was recorded and I hadn’t really discussed it with anyone. (minor spoilers follow)
It was great and I loved every minute of it, but my favorite little touch was Nolan having Michael Caine play such a contemptible asshole – it’s really not something you’d expect from him as an actor so it’s even more powerful when his true nature is revealed.
Listening back to this, I’m realizing that we refer to lots of things (comic artists/characters, TV shows etc) in passing without ever explaining what they are or why we care – which might be a bit confusing.
More podcasts to come!
