    Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

    Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

    In honor of the Star Wars holiday, the Parkway Theater podcast team reviews ‘Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace’ (1999). Technically the first film in the Star Wars timeline, two Jedis escape a hostile blockade in search of allies and come across a young boy who may bring balance to the Force, but the long-dormant Sith resurfaces to claim their original glory. Does the filming technology of the 1990s give it an unbelievable CGI effect that impacts the overall enjoyment of the film or are you able to appreciate it purely for the nostalgia?

    Tune in as the team discusses the epic action scenes, lightsabers, the all-star cast, and decides if this is actually a movie for children. And stay tuned for the post-podcast discussion of burnt beard smell and Jedi funeral etiquette. May the fourth be with you!

    Bonus Episode - The Revenant @ The Parkway + Top Movies for the Big Screen

    Bonus Episode - The Revenant @ The Parkway + Top Movies for the Big Screen

    Parkway Theater podcast bonus episode! 
    The Parkway Podcast team reviews the American epic ‘The Revenant' (2015). This incredibly real and visceral film follows a frontiersman (Leonardo DiCaprio) on a fur trading expedition in the 1820s as he fights for survival after being mauled by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. Beyond the all-star casting, the film's cinematography alone has earned the awards it was given and declared to be best viewed on a big screen. Which inspires the team to discuss what other films they would love to watch/would be best in a theater setting. 
    Which films do you put on that list?

    The Life of Brian (1979)

    The Life of Brian (1979)

    The Parkway Podcast team jumps into the spring season with the religious parody ‘Monty Python’s The Life of Brian’ (1979). 
    A different perspective on an age-old tale, the movie follows Brian of Nazareth as he is born in the stable next door to Jesus Christ and spends his life being mistaken for a messiah. Does the film’s irreverent style of humor hold up? Banned in certain countries, is it still as controversial when viewed with a modern lens? Could this movie even be made today? The team answers these questions and more in this episode as they look to the bright side of life.

    The Boondock Saints (1999)

    The Boondock Saints (1999)

    Tune in to this special St. Patrick’s Day episode of The Parkway Podcast as the team discusses the screaming cult movie ‘Boondock Saints’ (1999). Tired of the crime overrunning the streets of Boston, Irish Catholic twin brothers Conner (Sean Patrick Flanery) and Murphy (Norman Reedus) are inspired by their faith to cleanse their hometown of evil with their own brand of zealous vigilante justice. Is this fun to watch film a version of an Irish Punisher? The team recaps who they are actually revenging and the iconic verbiage that makes this a classic Irish holiday film.

    Episode 22 - Titanic (1997)

    Episode 22 - Titanic (1997)

    Tune into this special Valentine’s Day episode of The Parkway Podcast as the team discusses the iconic romantic historical fiction film ‘Titanic’ (1997) directed by James Cameron. This monster of a movie (in more ways than one) tells you the tale of a seventeen-year-old aristocrat (played by 21-year-old Kate Winslet) as she falls in love with a kind but poor artist (Leonardo DiCaprio) aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic (RIP). At the time, it was one of the most expensive films ever made and won many awards equivalent of that value. Would things have ended differently if Rose had stayed in her lifeboat? Would they have lived their lives together if Jack would have lived? Is the modern-day context with treasure hunting Bill Paxton really necessary? Can more than one person float on a large, ornate wooden door? These questions and more will be answered by the Parkway Podcast team.

    Episode 21 - The Thing (1982)

    Episode 21 - The Thing (1982)

    This week The Parkway Podcast team reviews the science fiction horror film classic ‘The Thing’ (1982), directed by John Carpenter. In remote Antarctica, a group of American research scientists, led by a resourceful helicopter pilot (Kurt Russell), are faced with a gory battle with an interplanetary visitor that can assume the shape of its victims. Tune in as the team raves over the pre-CGI practical effects and theorizes on which characters are actually ’the thing’ — and whether a mustache-less Wilford Brimley is technically still Wilford Brimley.
