GTGC - #163 - The Legend of Bagger Vance

15Feb

Fresh Prince February rolls on as Dustin, Alex, and Caleb gather back around the table to discuss Dustin's host pick, The Legend of Bagger Vance. Dustin continues his cause as the positive supporter of Will Smith's work this week as the reaction is definitely mixed around the table. 

In keeping with the new format, we do our quick reviews and then jump in an interesting discussion about Voice Over Narration. The gang then discusses some memorable and favorite uses of the technique. Next, we get down to business as we begin to analyze The Legend of Bagger Vance. Alex provides a discourse on sports and pop culture and ties all of that in with ideas of storytelling. Caleb is next, and he provides a look at the story trope of the "Magical Negro" and why it is more problematic than normal in Bagger Vance. Dustin closes things out this week with a look at the film's stance on the environment and how Robert Redford's beliefs shine through. 
It's an interesting show this week as we talk Bagger Vance with plenty of juicy discussion around the table. So, tee up and hit play... FORE!
