Film Seizure #150 – The Empire Strikes Back

It’s the 150th episode of Film Seizure! We decided there would be no better way to celebrate than with a really important film in our lives – The Empire Strikes Back!


  1. I don’t know if this code will work, but these are some of the behind the scenes, and more important, top left, Promotional Photos, taken for Empire. It’s clear to me, despite the obvious funning around with side characters, that Luke & Leia’s siblinghood was on no one’s mind when this was being made. The way Lucas has fallen into rewriting history, his making-of history, I mean, since the earliest days, anytime he says, “That was the plan from the start,” …I mean, in that area he might as well be Donald Trump stating any fact – it’s more likely that it isn’t true because he said it is.


    Also this,

    It’s not the first, but a first, needless fleshing out, from Brian Daley, who made a career of doing this with Han Solo books, and the surprisingly good radio dramas.

    This was not surprisingly good.

    1. Thanks, Dave! I don’t want to be on record by saying that there is absolutely no need for the lore, but some people begin to feed on it to the point of insanity. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t making up my own stories or having my own wish list of things I want to see, but I definitely don’t live for the WHOLE story. I want enough, and if it’s good, some extra is welcomed, but golly fandom can be a real pain the ol’ Hutt butt.
