Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is headed home this week on Blu-ray, and with it comes a feature-length documentary on making the film and honoring the legacy of the Skywalker Saga. Debs Paterson, the filmmaker behind the documentary joins us this week to talk about what they set out to capture while shooting behind the scenes of the epic, decades-spanning saga, the 350+ hours of archival footage they had access to from Lucasfilm, and so much more. She was an absolute delight to talk to, and a true Star Wars fan so we think you’ll really enjoy this discussion.
The Golden Globes have announced changes to their eligibility rules in light of current events. We discuss how this will effect the awards landscape moving forward, and, with the continued delay of films reaching into July, what that slate of awards contenders might even look like.
For this week’s BlendGame, we dive into our FAVORITE needle drops in film history with “NeedleDropBlend.” On our next episode, we’ll be looking at the underrated films from the 2000s. Let us know what film from the 2000s you don’t think gets enough love using the hashtag “Underrated2000sBlend” on Twitter.
