Having finally watched the third installments of the Back to the Future and Star Wars franchises, Jen has Stephen C. James back for his third appearance on PrePopCulture. Though they agree that both movies aren’t the most essential parts of their respective franchises, they disagree about which trilogy is better over all. And even though Jen watched all of Return of the Jedi, it’s entirely possible she still managed to miss a very pivotal moment.
Stephen C. James (The Sunday Social) and Scott Narver (Curtain Jerks) return to discuss another thing Jen was way behind the curve on: Back to the Future. Having watched the first and second movies in the franchise for the first time this week, Jen dug the way the movies use time travel, wasn’t as enthralled with the DeLorean as Stephen and Scott are, and noticed a particular (and slightly disturbing) similarity between these movies and Star Wars. Plus, Scott does an impression that’s one of the best things that’s ever happened on the podcast.
PrePopCulture is a weekly one hour podcast in which my guests and I tackle all things pop culture. We chat about cool stuff that's under the radar, examine how things currently in pop culture got there, and even take a stab at where trends might go in the future.
