Movie Review: ‘The Last Jedi’

Where to begin.  For starters, Rian Johnson had the unenviable position of following up The Force Awakens to present Star Wars audiences with the second movie in what has been deemed the sequel trilogy.  The Force Awakens was a financial success making almost a billion dollars domestically.  But Star Wars fans are always divided on the elements in their fandom, be it movies, books, television or video games.  What one person loves, someone else will hate.  To that end, we can only express our own opinions for what they’re worth.  And to that end, we loved The Last Jedi.  Full disclosure, we’re delving into complete spoilers for the film.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review featuring lots of The Last Jedi discussions. Keep in mind all of the episodes have spoilers for The Last Jedi.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 104 breaks down The Last Jedi from beginning to end. They give some nice farewells to the characters we lost, they nickname Bootleg Asti — which is perfect, and boy did they make me laugh about the caretaker party deleted scene speculation. This episode is just the thing to bring a smile to your face. Terrific episode.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 1 hour 34 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Jason, and Gabe, Rating: Great

Brews and Blasters: Episode 148 is their roundtable extravaganza for The Last Jedi as they get into spoilers and have on a bunch of guests. Chris and Joe kick things off as they talk about the collectibles at the theater, the John Williams featurette, and their initial impressions. They play some of the soundtrack in the background, then start breaking out the guests. First up is Dennis, Taxus and Jay Krebs from Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels. Then Stephen and Swara from Beltway Banthas, followed by Mike from The Sandcrawler, Kendall, Courtney, Jay and Josh from Green Justice: An Arrow Podcast, Rich and Sarah from Skywalking Through Neverland, Becca and Devon from Kanata’s Castle, and Joey from Animanicast. Great discussions covering everything from the bomber run to the broom stick boy. It’s a long one, though.

Podcast Network: RetrozapRuntime: 3 hours 33 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Joe and Chris, Rating: Great

Card Trader Illuminerdy: The Last Jedi Spoiler Debrief is one big, chaotic but fun discussion of The Last Jedi. The topics are random, but the conversation is entertaining from beginning to end. And it’s all The Last Jedi focused as they delve into the characters, the scenes, the music and random things like square watermelons, porg turkey legs and fun with microphones. It’s not a very polished podcast, but it’s fun.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 2 hours 3 minutes, Audio Quality: Good, Editing: Good, Hosts: Mike, Tommy, Rhett, and Earl, Rating: Fun Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Why is Luke Scared?

October 11, 2017 at 9:48 am | Posted in Episode VIII, Ewok Corner, Movies, Opinion, Regular Feature, Star Wars | 1 Comment

“I’ve seen this raw strength only once before. It didn’t scare me enough then. It does now.”

Those words from Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi trailer are haunting. In a time of such great chaos against a threat like the First Order, we are all expecting Luke to be our bedrock. He’s the Jedi who brought his father back to the light, helped kill the Emperor, and saved the galaxy. Now he’s the last Jedi, and he’s scared. But why? Continue Reading Why is Luke Scared?…
