The Weekly Stuff #231 – Far Cry 5, Ready Player One, and Revisiting Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link

After revisiting the first two Star Wars Prequels earlier this year, we finally reach the third and final film in the controversial trilogy, and once again give it a thorough critical reevaluation. Revenge of the Sith is a great Star Wars movie, a bleak but rousing trilogy capper with a surprising amount of political resonance today, and it gives us a ton to dive into as we complete our project of revisiting the prequels. We also review some new movies – namely Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One and Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs – and talk a bit about this week’s big game release, Far Cry 5, in a fun, busy, jam-packed episode.

  1. The DVD and Blu-Ray for "Superman The Movie" also has a score-only track. Gun to my head, I would have to choose Superman as my favorite John Williams score.
