Rogue One: A Star Wars Story follows a new character in Jyn Erso, as a rebellious daughter of an Imperial employee who might have the access necessary to deliver a winning solution for the Alliance. With her assembled band of rogue warriors, Jyn attempts to take on the Empire and Darth Vader himself as they infiltrate and attempt to smuggle out the plans to the dreaded Death Star.

For our latest reactions podcast, Aaron, Scott and John discuss the film in detail. From the new characters, to returning favorites, to a few questionable CGI choices. Every aspect of Rogue One is up for discussion, and we have some love and complaint with this first foray into the expanded universe of a galaxy far, far away.

Every year, we love to celebrate the holiday season with our listeners, and there is no better way to do that then with our 3rd Annual Holiday Special!

It all started with a random idea, as Aaron and Scott were big fans of holiday specials, and podcasts seemed to skip over the idea completely. We decided we can do whatever we want here at The Hollywood Outsider, so let’s create our own tradition and the annual special was born.

Every year we do a little something different, and this year we are incorporating one of our most popular topics – The Movie Battle Royale! We’ve all debated what IS a Christmas movie and what is not, but what is - ultimately - the GREATEST CHRISTMAS MOVIE EVERY MADE? By the end of this episode, with a little help from our special guest Amy, it will finally be decided.

That’s not all, oh no. After our debate, the Christmas joy kicks in as we get a little personal and share our personal memories of the holiday season. Favorite movies, TV specials, moments, and even desserts – everything is covered this year!

With a special opening from John, a little whimsy from Aaron, and of course the annual Christmas Poem from Scott – This is the one podcast you don’t want to miss this holiday season!

Join in on our conversation and listen to the latest episode of The Hollywood Outsider.

  • What is the greatest Christmas movie ever?
  • Movies and TV specials to kick off Christmas right

First up, what are some of our favorite guilty pleasures? You know, those movies so bad they’re almost embarrassing to admit to the public that you love? The ones we watch under the cloak of shame and forever neglect to mention in gatherings for worry of street cred being revoked, THOSE movies.

Moving on, we debate bad movie titles and what makes the worst of the worst. Is it nothing more than just a poor choice of words, or is there a deeper problem with the titles studios sometimes choose?

Lastly, after reviews of new films like SING and Pet, we discuss in detail Season 1 of Westworld. Now that HBO’s newest juggernaut has completed its first round, what do we think of this latest science fiction opus, and are we excited for another round?

We’re all fans of something. It could be a television series, a classic film, or even a celebrated filmmaker. We’ve also all been in the position to question that fandom when behind-the-scenes drama rises up.

Our topic this week is what does it take to lose us as fans? What issues are so important to us that it would cause us to stop watching a TV series or a movie, or even stop following an actor or filmmaker we love?
