    Arrival Review feat. Dr. Phil Lipschitz | Dim The Lights Podcast Ep.9

    ARRIVAL

    Linguistics professor Louise Banks (Amy Adams) leads an elite team of investigators when gigantic spaceships touch down in 12 locations around the world. As nations teeter on the verge of global war, Banks and her crew must race against time to find a way to communicate with the extraterrestrial visitors. Hoping to unravel the mystery, she takes a chance that could threaten her life and quite possibly all of mankind.

    On this brand new episode of the Dim The Lights Podcast, Olga and I talk about this riveting sci-fi film with our own renowned linguist, Dr. Phil Lipschitz. Dr. Phil shares his thoughts on the film, how accurate the film's science is, and how earthworms secretly talk in farts.

    Also on this episode, we talk about the Spiderman: Homecoming trailer, Justice League trailer, and Joss Whedon potentially directing a Batgirl film.

    Movies out this weekend include Ghost In The Shell, Boss Baby, and The Zookeeper's Wife.

    Star Wars Series: A New Hope | Dim The Lights Film Blog Ep.8

    STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE

    We are continuing our Star Wars series with the original Star Wars.

    I'm loving everything Disney is doing so far with the Star Wars brand, but it's still great to go back to where it all started. A simple farm boy. A nerf herder. A stunning princess. The Empire. There is nothing quite like the original Star Wars film.

    Olga and I talk about what we love about A New Hope. We definitely tear up a lot every time we watch this film haha.

    Watching it over again recently it's great to see Princess Leia again, the original female badass. Carrie Fisher's performance is outstanding and it was great revisiting her part in the greater Star Wars universe.

    Luke is still really whiny, but what I really love about Star Wars is its attention to character arc. Luke starts out as a dreamer who just wants to hang with friends at Tashi station. He transitions into a full-fledged Jedi capable of holding his own rather than Han always needing to save his neck.

    Speaking of Han, he is still amazing. His relationship with all the characters is fantastic and he really is the great anti-hero that we see so often nowadays.

    A New Hope is even better now that it connects directly to Rogue One. If you've seen Rogue One, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

    Listen to the podcast to hear our full thoughts on the original Star Wars!
