ALIENS: Scott’s favorite movie of all time

StorySmack Episode #17

ALIENS on StorySmack sponsored by our '4InkJets Coupon' page at http://scottsigler.com/4inkjets-couponThis week we were going to do an ALIENS watch-along. We didn’t get that off the ground. We’ll tell you all about it in the episode. Instead, we’re doing a traditional movie review Story Smack, but for Sigler’s favorite movie of all time. ALL TIME!

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/17_StorySmack_17_-_Aliens.mp3

The thing is … ALIENS is Scott’s favorite, but it’s also a hugely important and influential movie in general. Sigourney Weaver is luminescent in every sense of the word, all the while being a difficult, ornery character, in unfathomable circumstance. It’s a performance of a lifetime, and it’s only one part of the movie. If you have never seen it, do watch it before listening.

Murder 1-2-3: courtroom definitions in storytelling

StorySmack Episode #15

This week we’re taking a break from movie breakdowns as we recover from our European jet lag.

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/15_StorySmack_15_Murder_1-2-3.mp3

Everyone’s seen plenty of courtroom dramas, cop stories, and forensic investigation on television and in the movies. So much that our sense of justice and the law is surely informed by what we’ve seen on the screen. And what’s on the screen isn’t always real-world accurate, surrendering dry legal wrangling for entertaining fiction.

Scott and I breakdown the degrees of murder as they’re written in California so we can see where reality and fiction diverge. If you’re a storyteller or just a big fan of true-crime stories, these are things you should know. We’re here to help!

European Tour & how travel impacts storytelling

StorySmack Episode #14

The European Tour of 2017 rolls along. We took a few minutes to talk about our feels and impressions from some of the amazing, life-changing things we’ve seen. We also discuss how seeing such things can affect a storyteller’s views, and impact (or create whole cloth) future stories.
