Geek Out Commentary: Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace

You thought we were just straight up ditching this one, didn't you? Try as we might to deny it, The Phantom Menace was a theatrically released Star Wars flick (And the only one to get a wide release in 3D!) so, for completion's sake, we did a commentary for it. But is it as terrible as the gang remembers it? Yes, yes it is. Watch and listen along as the boys suffer through what is hopefully the worst live action Star Wars film to grace the silver screen.

Geek Out Commentary: Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

The prequel interlude revealing the fall of Anakin Skywalker comes to an end this week as the boys revisit the final Star Wars prequel, a film many thought would be the final Star Wars film of all time. Often heralded as the best of the prequels (Some even consider it better than Return of the Jedi), George Lucas completed the promise he made by adding the Episode IV subtitle to the re-release of Star Wars with the release of Revenge of the Sith...but how does the gang feel about it? Does Hayden Christensen redeem his trashed performance from Episode II? And why does Sam hate Shattered Glass? All this and more, folks.

Sam and Jake are back to talk about the Fab Four's sophomore album, With The Beatles.

Listen as the boys examine each song on the album track by track, offer their impressions and trivia, and elaborate on the relationship The Beatles had with the then-nascent Rolling Stones!

Geek Out Commentary: Star Wars - The Clone Wars

Wait, what? As if doing the Star Wars films out of episode or release order wasn't enough, you're going to throw an animated film in the mix? That's right, folks, the animated film that served as a means to introduce the public to the Cartoon Network TV series technically got a wide theatrical release so we're including it with our countdown for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Meant to bridge the gap between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, if this film feels like a bunch of episodes from the show stringed together, it's because it is; The Clone Wars movie was a last minute decision from George Lucas himself so if you're looking for another reason to criticize him, look no further! Listen along as Jake questions everything he loves about Star Wars in face of this flick and see how the boys stack it up to the rest of the series!
