Rebel Moon

What do you do when an unstoppable, evil army threatens your peaceful village? Why, you scour the countryside to retain the services of a small group of reluctant warriors with troubled back stories looking to make up for the sins of the past. And if it’s your peaceful moon that’s threatened, well then you scour the galaxy for your group of misfit warriors to defend you and your peaceful townsfolk. Hey, it worked for Akira Kurosawa. Rebel Moon, the latest action extravaganza from Zack Snyder, draws on some heavy inspiration from the likes of such classic and beloved films as Seven Samurai, Star Wars, and Eight Legged Freaks to bring you a story only Zack Snyder could tell. Filled to the brim with mythological creatures; sweaty, shirtless men; and broken warriors with checkered pasts looking for one last chance at redemption, Rebel Moon is nothing if not ambitious, seeking to stake a claim among the pantheon of great science fiction movies. In this episode, your intrepid hosts provide their insightful insights about Rebel Moon and whether it lived up (or down) to the hype. So grab your laser guns and definitely-not-lightsabers-but-also-definitely-not-NOT-lightsabers and strap yourselves in for a journey into a galaxy far, far away (but definitely not THAT galaxy far, far away)
