A couple of Blockade Runners made an early morning trip to a Last Jedi screening just before the holidays and we took the opportunity to check in with Chris to hear about why he unfortunately didn’t love the movie (unlike pretty much everyone else involved with The Blockade Runner). This episode is brief as we recorded it in the car on the way to and from the movie, but if you didn’t love Rian Johnson’s first contribution to the Star Wars series you may enjoy hearing a similar perspective from Chris. Or, if you loved it like the rest of us on the show did, Chris provides an alternate take without resorting to insults and hyperbole.
In our third Last Jedi reactions episode, Ryan and John discuss their evolving feelings about #TheLastJedi after multiple viewings as well as dig in to the character arcs for Luke Skywalker and Vice Admiral Holdo.
This episode features Kevin, Jake, Jeremey, and John’s RAW and IMMEDIATE reactions to the totally crazy new Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi (don’t listen until you’ve seen the film!). We drove straight to a nearby restaurant as soon as the movie was over and just recorded our initial thoughts, so while there’s a bit of background noise and restaurant chatter, we think it’s worth it! We’ll be back with a more formal reaction show soon.
Ryan and John get together one last time before the release of The Last Jedi to speculate about the movie, where the characters are headed, and the potential twists and turns we may encounter along the way. We also discuss some of the most compelling comments from last week’s TLJ media tour and discuss our plans for avoiding spoilers on social media in the days preceding the film’s release. And we kick it all off with a discussion of Star Wars and the holidays and some of our favorite Star Wars holiday merch and traditions!
