This week, Andy tries an experiment: recording a podcast with someone who just finished the movie. Andy and Erik discuss pacing and dialogue, Matthew McConaughey, and the reality of our reality. Also, Andy grinds the show to a halt with a bizarre story about time travel.
The Cover of the Week comes from The Eadgyth. It’s Interstellar’s main theme played on a hammered dulcimer. I had no idea what that instrument was before watching this video. But the combination of strings and percussion suits the score well. Take a listen!
This week, Andy celebrates Interstellar’s one-year anniversary with a discussion of evil, good, and love. He also speculates on how Siri could’ve ruined the moon landing and shares the real-life event that shaped his deep connection with the film. Happy belated birthday, Interstellar!
I’m not a superhero guy. I skip the Avengers movies, and I don’t read comics. There’s no pristine Mego Superman sitting on my shelf. That said, I’ve never found any of that “weird”; there’s a lot of unfair stereotypes about comic/fantasy/science fiction fans. In truth, I’ve always envied their passion.
Well, today, I put that envy to rest. My unfathomably deep connection to Interstellar has driven me to do something I’ve never done as an adult: purchase action figures.
That’s right! Cooper and Brand are in my living room!
