095: SFFCH – Wing Commander

095 Wing Commander SF

Will a long hated disaster be reprieved or will Abi’s choice of 1999’s ‘Wing Commander’ prove to be the ultimate nail in its coffin. Yes, it’s time for Rich, Abi and Ant to have a not too hate-filled chat about the movie, for Rich to try and talk about ‘Star Trek’ similarities despite not knowing anything about the show, for everyone to speculate about the games without having played them, and for some discussion on why the story really doesn’t make much sense at all. Overall, it’s not quite as bad a movie as its reputation, but the word ‘generic’ does pop up frequently and the Crew do seem to want to execute the Lillard character ruthlessly. That’s normal, isn’t it? Oh, and the Jivelander from the film ‘Highlander’ does appear in this movie. Go, Quarshie, go! (Ep 95, Rec 2015)

  1. I enjoyed your perspective on the film and that you picked up on a lot of the funny little things that show up like Blair’s cross/knife. There was actually quite a bit of this film that got cut (mostly for budget reasons) that would have explained that or been the payoff. Essentially there were other Pilgrim traitors in the movie, one of which Blair ends up killing with his blade. Much of these subplots (which in it’s original form were probably more like the main plot) were cut and leave the remaining film disjointed and contextless.

    • Ah… that makes sense! Otherwise, why would they have put it in in the first place? Thanks for the comment. Sorry we didn’t reply sooner, December has really done a number on us this year!

      Merry Christmas,
