Arthouse Legends Podcast

Welcome to Arthouse Legends Podcast - Where High Art and Geek Culture Collide! The goal of this podcast is to take a look at critically acclaimed and well-received films and consider if these films truly deserve their revered status in the cultural zeitguest. Using our combined film knowledge, geeky obsessions and general fart jokes, we take a bite out of much-beloved films, sometimes in love, other times in scorn, but never out-of-bounds.

In 1980, Star Wars director George Lucas continued his epic space opera along with the help of his mentor and fellow director Irvin Kershner. Titled The Empire Strikes Back, the film continues the story of Luke Skywalker as he trains to be a Jedi, Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa as they are being chased by the evil Darth Vader, along with a few new characters. The film is seen as the perfect example of what a sequel is supposed to do and in the eyes of many deemed as the superior franchise film. But is that really the case? MovieDude Eric, Kent and Chris are joined by Crimson Comet's Jonolobster along with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D's Lauren as they dive back into the galaxy far, far, away.
