Star Wars Holiday Special: The Podcast

Merry Christmas, everybody! The last day of our Culkin Keatmas is upon us, and with it, our final gift to you.  Jim and I break down the Star Wars Holiday Special and take it for all it’s worth.  Wookiee porn, deeply unfunny instructional videos, ill-fitting helmets, and hours of uncaptioned Wookiee dialog are considered and de-coded but we’re still left with the big question… Why?  Since all involved have disowned the project we may never know.  But whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Life Day or any other tradition that aims to turn the coldest, darkest part of the year into something more, you are in our thoughts, and you have our gratitude for all the love and support you’ve shown us this past year.  We’ll see you in 2018!

Star Wars Holiday Special – LIVEWATCH!

That’s right, you saw the title.  For this years Merry Culkin Keatmas grand finale, we watch the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special.  Thrill as the Wookie homeworld of Kashyyyk is blockaided by sinister Imperial forces that stand between Chewbacca and his family celebrating Life Day.  Honestly, that description I just typed is 1000% cooler than the awful reality; Star Wars providing a thin vinear attempting to cover that most awful of television traditions; the variety show.

Batman Returns (1992)

Our Merry Culkin Keatmas jingles on!  We’ve seen the apex of any good Keatmas, Batman Returns, the 1992 follow up to the Tim Burton Batman.  What’s better than Jack Nicholson as the Joker?  Having two classic Bat Villains.  The concept has merit, but the execution?  It’s not as purrrrfect as Catwoman might want.  We discuss Keaton’s place in the Bat Pantheon, Devito’s bizarre, grotesque, Penguin, and the stuff that works in the Catwoman/Batman relationship, and the stuff that doesn’t.   Stay tuned because we’re not quite done, you have one more present left to unwrap!  Come back Christmas Eve (Sunday, December 24th)  to find it under the tree!

Merry Culkin Keatmas begins its third act with the mostly beloved Tim Burton Christmas classic (not that one…), Batman Returns. Does a 1992 Batman movie starring Michael Keaton, Michelle Pfeiffer, Danny Devito, Christopher Walken and Paul Reubens hold up in 2017? There’s only one way to find out and it’s nearly going to kill one of us.
