This week we are not talking about a comic related item – not directly comic related. We are talking about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The 2nd installment in the Disney Star Wars Trilogy.
The reason we are talking about this movie is because of the way fans have reacted to the movie. About half the people who saw this movie hated it. Some hated it so much that they tried to get the Rotten Tomatoes score to go lower through hacking attempts. Others put petitions together to get Disney to remove this movie from Star Wars canon.
This is the reason we had to do a Last Jedi review – to go over what exactly people hated about the movie and that hatred justified or is it just a fan boy knee jerk reaction to bold new moves?
**There are SPOILERS in the movie review. You know the drill: Don’t listen if you plan on seeing the movie.**
The program goes like this:
- We discuss our opinion on the new movie.
- We then discuss some of what we feel are “pain points” for Star Wars fan boys
- We end the podcast with a comparison of Empire Strikes Back vs The Last Jedi (the similarities may shock you).
