Alien.

The end of the 70s saw an explosion of influential movies that changed the landscape of film forever. Of course Star Wars redefined everything by becoming the first blockbuster, but two years later Star Trek: The Motion Picture would arrive as well as Ridley Scott's own foray into space.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Brandon-Shea Mutala and Amy Nelson to talk about Alien. We discuss Alien history, the cast and characters, space truckers, cogs in a wheel, illusions, Alien notes and our ratings.

Star Wars Aftermath: Empire's End.

With the release of The Force Awakens, one of the biggest questions about the movie was, "What happened in the 30 years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens?". The Aftermath series by Chuck Wendig was meant to begin that tale, but has been middling at best and now the trilogy is coming to a close.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Bruce Gibson and Mark Hurliman to talk about Empire's End. We discuss our first/last impressions, dive deep into all 5 sections of the books and talk about the aftermath of these books the the state of canon, plus give out thoughts about the future of the books.

The Wolverine.

The breakout character from the first X-Men movie was clearly Wolverine and because of this he was explored in the dismal X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Even though the film did not do well with the critics or the audience, the character remained a favorite and ripe for another chance in a solo adventure.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Megan Calcote to discuss The Wolverine. We talk about using rotten tomatoes, a curse or a blessing, who is Logan, two women, the villains, action, blood and violence, the Silver Samurai, speculation and our ratings.
