Interstellar - Ghosts, Faith, and Your Brain Before Death

March 6, 2017

Daryl Smith and Elvis Illescas review Christopher Nolan's Interstellar and then dig deeper to ask some important questions about the story.

First up, their review--Quality, Story Depth, and Likelihood to Refer it to others. And here are some of the deeper questions:

  • Who is your favorite character in Interstellar? Why?
  • Which characters have the most faith (whatever it may be in)? Is their faith rewarded?
  • Which characters reject faith? How does it work out for them?
  • Much of the film is about the perseverance of humanity to survive. Is this possible outside of faith?
  • Is there truth in science? Can science be a type of savior?
  • Do you think God exists in the world of Interstellar? Why or why not?

Wolverine: Old Man Logan - Hunting Nazis in Alt-America

February 20, 2017

Jay Sherer reviews Wolverine: Old Man Logan by Mark Millar (Daryl told me it's pronounced Mill-ER, so I pronounce it incorrectly the entire podcast) and Steve McNiven. I also dig deeper to ask some important questions about the story.

First up, our review--Quality, Story Depth, and Likelihood to Refer it to others. And here are some of the deeper questions:

  • Is it acceptable to be a pacifist? Why or why not? Are pacifists weaker than those willing to fight, or are they stronger?
  • What should we place our hope in? Humans in this book worship super heroes. What do we worship? Does it provide hope for us?
  • There's a lot of talk about "Nazis" today. How do we ensure that the U.S. never falls under Nazi control?
  • What is the "path of righteousness"? If being a pacifist is "righteous," why do we root for Wolverine to fight? When should we stand up and fight?
