Specifically, RMB covers the following:
• Rob recalls what it was like watching the original Star Wars trilogy (episodes IV, V, and VI) in the movie theater back in 1985.
• RMB bemoans the fact that fans don’t talk about what we LOVE about Star Wars anymore. Why is that?
• Similarly, Rob talks about seeing STAR WARS: EPISODE V – THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK for the first time (and a subsequent 25 more times after that).
• Esteemed member of The PGS, Ian Samuels, makes his case as to why SW:TESB is not just a great sequel … it’s one of the best films. Ever.
• Rob and the viewers have an in-depth discussion about the state of streaming and whether or not the current string of re-boots and franchise extensions will last for the major studios. Based on this letter.
• RMB and Imagination Connoisseur, Jeffrey Mao, reminisce about what it was like growing up as a geek.
• With a little urging from Imagination Connoisseur, CK, Rob talks about Chinese cinema and the Ip Man series of films.
• Are we dying a slow death under the weight of big-studio blockbusters?Imagination Connoisseur, Doug Harris, writes about the need for exhibitors (theater chains) to put pressure on the studios to bring back mid-budget movies.
• Based on this letter, Rob and viewers remember the movies they saw as kids of the 1980s.
