We agree on some things and disagree on others, but you’ll have to listen to the whole thing to find out why!
The Chosen One, Darth Vader, little orphan Annie, Anakin Skywalker. He goes by many names and this week Kalvin and Nick take a deep dive in to the problematic “Chosen One” of the Star Wars universe. We discuss his rise and fall and rise again, how the Jedi and Sith influenced his upbringing in the ways of the Force, and all of the important people that impacted his life. Join us as we try to figure out what make one of the most tragic and terrifying villains in all of cinema tick.
Welcome back to another installment in our Star Wars month with Star Wars Movie Superlatives! Best vehicles, movie, villains, and more dominate Kalvin and Nick’s discussion as we dive even further into this epic universe which finally receives our made-up awards! Who is the best hero in Star Wars? We have some feelings about that so listen in to find out!
The First Galactic Empire, also known as the Imperium (way cooler, we know), willed itself into reality at the behest of a mighty Sith Lord, Emperor Palpatine after nearly 25,000 years of the Republic’s existence. However, as with any intricate task like the scale of the epic overthrow of the Republic, it’s a little more nuanced than that, and this week, as part of Star Wars month, Kalvin and Nick dive deep into all things Galatic Empire! From how Palpatine rose to power to the inception, construction, and implementation of the mighty army that would lead it, its power structure as well as the multitude of things that had to go just right so the whole operation didn’t go up in smoke. A story of just how far one man has to go to change the galaxy to instill the ultimate Empire unfolds before us.
