Very quickly, let me just say this episode was one I feel like we needed to do, not only to bring Jason back on board to get his thoughts, but to more directly address the reasons why we feel about this movie the way we do.
Ryan is still a 4 out of 5 on this one, and have listen to me and Jason spoiler this bad boy up for you as we break it down. Section by section, we unpack this so you can understand what we’re thinking as we roll through Rian Johnson’s vision.
No holds barred. Spoilers aplenty. Lots of language.
You have been warned.
Agree? Disagree? Let us know, but you’d better come with a why?/why not? with those.
Now, without any further ado, is our revisit of
The Last Jedi
Oh, dear. In a year filled with Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Wonder Woman, Dunkirk, and Justice League, we are finally face to face with the sure-fire blockbuster movie all of them avoided going up against.
The cinematic juggernaut of juggernauts,
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Episode VIII, for all of you keeping track at home (or Episode 8 if your school didn’t teach Roman numerals), this Rian Johnson-directed installment of the Skywalker family saga has been eagerly awaited by fans since the the final credits ran on Episode VII (7) 2 years ago.
What could The Last Jedi do to top The Force Awakens?
What doesn’t it do? Or try to?
We had such a great time recording our review of IT the other day we wound up going off on a couple of tangents that didn’t really belong in that episode, so, lucky you!
You get to listen to us talk about movies, awards, and even segue into a discussion about the recent directorial unpleasantness creeping into the Star Wars universe in the form of the directorial turn-over on the Han Solo stand-alone film and the just-happened “creative differences” between Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Trevorrow.
So sit back, relax, and have a listen.
And please, feel free to let us know if you disagree with us on any of this via Facebook, twitter, or the website.
