With Rise of Skywalker and the end of the Skywalker Saga at the end of the month to look forward to, Hard NOC Life is going to be a Star Wars podcast for the month of December. Because there aren’t enough Star Wars podcasts on the internet! Each week, Dominic and Keith will be breaking down a different trilogy that make up the beloved Star Wars franchise.
This week, they rewind the clock four decades to 1977 and the film that started it all! How did Star Wars change the movie industry and the way movies are marketed? Why is Empire Strikes Back considered the definitive film in the franchise? Why doesn’t Return of the Jedi get more love? They also compare the Special Editions to the originals and try to figure out why nostalgia may be an even more powerful force than, well, the Force. They also praise the indelible score by John Williams and its contribution to the Star Wars experience.
