Movie Meltdown - Episode 422 (For our Patreon supporters.)

This week we once again gather for our Life Day celebration, which of course also means an epic discussion about The Last Jedi and the Star Wars universe as a whole. Buckle up your porgs… this is going to be a bumpy ride.

And while we partake in our annual batch of Wookie cookies, we also cover... fan theories, hard science in space, nothing but videos of dogs, destroying the past, the Dark Phoenix movie, Sith-ish, humorous bravado, Alan Dean Foster, new Force powers, an entertainment monopoly, salt, good call on the mouse’s part, I’ve exhausted all my Force juice, chum in the water, what a weird mash-up this is going to be, building a functional Government, Disney purchasing power, unconventional fighting methods, Mace Windu, a weirdo in every franchise, intellectual property, The Clone Wars, chaotic neutral, a new movie every year, Deadpool, the grey side, regurgitating, fantasy vs. sci fi, refusing to communicate, being a monolith, Emperor Palpatine, happy trees and bunnies, old white dudes, surfacing from the cave, Timothy Zahn’s trilogy, salt dogs, going to the chalk board, Rocky Horror Picture Show, neutral force, The Avengers go on vacation and subverting your expectations.

 Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, so watch the movie before you listen. You have been warned!

“I’ve been saying for years… that if we start picking at anything Star Wars, you’re eventually just going to start pulling all these threads. And the whole thing’s going to unravel.”
