Sidekicked Issue #25 – Star Wars: The Ticket Menace (aka The Phantom Ticket)

Star Wars movie tickets went on sale this week and the screams of angry fans filled the sky. Websites crashed, credit card purchase errors were abundant, and Disney made its money. What do Star Wars ticket sales say about the film’s potential success? What does it say about the way we now view movies? David and Vincent discuss how the movie experience has changed for film fans.

David is a cool human and the co-host of the Sidekicked Podcast with Vincent Powell! He hates long walks on the beach, but only because there is so much sand. He knows more about Marvel than DC. He is a feminist, regardless of the fact that he is a guy. You haven't heard of him, well he's a big deal in Latveria.
