Ep123: Spoiler Alert!!!

The Force will awaken one month from today, and the KtS Podcast is deep in preparation with the fifth installment of our Star Wars retrospective! This week, Ian, Bill, Gari, and Charlie discuss Irvin Kershner's 1980 classic, The Empire Strikes Back! As with previous episodes in the series, the gang re-discovers some long-forgotten gems and raises their eyebrows at a few not-so-flattering moments in this mostly perfect film.

Also, Ian takes a moment (or two, or three) to rave about Cool Apocalypse, the debut feature film from Michael Glover Smith. This Chicago-set relationship drama is superbly acted, insightfully written, and shot in an intimate style that places the audience in the fifth chair at a dark and wacky going-away dinner. If you'd like to be in an actual audience for Cool Apocalypse, join Smith and select cast and crew this weekend at the Gene Siskel Film Center. You'll be glad you did.

In the meantime, kick back with a tall glass of blue milk and fantasize about your favorite scruffy-looking nerf herder as Episode 123 transports you to a galaxy far, far away....
