Ep 141 – (Near) Masterpiece Theatre

theatre

What makes a film a masterpiece? Or, more to the point, what makes a near-masterpiece? The debate begins, as Todd thinks it involves being re-watchable and enjoyable, while James thinks it means having a deeper or transcendent message. John just looks for ninjas. Deep discussion, plus a new classic bit – David Lynch does Star Wars!

FFbooks

We’re pretty far into developing our theories on what formed this particular nerd crew (hint: it all happened between the ages of 10-14), and in this episode we examine further evidence on that front. As John re-buys his childhood library (“It’s for my son!”), we take the Todd-approved Wayback Machine to remember some key reading from our childhoods.
