The Mandalorian - S02E04 – Chapter 12: The Siege

Oh, you were expecting Ahsoka to show up the episode after she’s name-dropped? That’s just too bad. We’ve still got secondary characters to service! Like Cara. What’s she been up to since Mando left? And Greefe? He definitely needs some screentime. Not to mention Boba Fett was shown two full episodes before Ahsoka’s name even hit a character’s lips. No friend, we’ve got a LONG way to go before the Ahsoka episode. In the meantime, we do get some solid action and speculation-fodder for Moff Gideon’s plans if he ever gets his hands on Baby Yoda.

The Mandalorian - S02E02 – Chapter 10: The Passenger

The Mandalorian takes us on a side-quest escort mission away from our story question of learning more about Baby Yoda. Then it derails that side-quest to pay homage to Aliens and the original Star Wars concept art with an icy subterranean adventure. Honestly, I loved every second of it. Join us for the podcast to hear our detailed thoughts on season 2, episode 2 title “Chapter 10: The Passenger”.

Join us next week for the return of The Mandalorian.

Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker (2019)

Jim and I saw a Star Wars film tonight.  We were displeased. If you loved or liked the film, we’re really happy for you. But this trilogy wasn’t for us, much like it’s father, the prequel trilogy before it. If you hate the film, we totally get that, too. All we ask is that you try to be happy for the people who are happy, and try to be understanding to the people who are feeling a bit numb like us.  We’ll be back in 2020 for some more awesome movies, and probably a few that will suck, as is tradition. See you then!

Second Annual “Groundhog Day” Star Wars Marathon Wrap Up!

At long last we’re ready to wrap up our second annual “Groundhog Day” Star Wars movie marathon! With the help and support of the Bald Move community, we raised $15,691.51 for the National Alliance to End Homelessness over 24 grueling hours of non-stop Star Wars watching. There was food, there was mugs, there were socks. Mark Hamill gave us a tip of his cap. Bidets were raffled. Jim and A.Ron break down their thoughts and feelings on the event, and dish on plans for future marathons, then invite Ben Noll from the National Alliance to discuss their mission and how they feel they can truly end homelessness. Thanks everyone for helping to make this a smashing success, and we can’t wait to see what happens next year!

Star Wars Within A Minute: The Making Of Episode III Documentary

Michael from Arlington, Virginia was nice enough to commission this podcast in honor of his lovely and talented wife, Susanna. Michael wanted to do something positive with his commission. He wanted to recognize and celebrate the hundreds and thousands of people; the artists, craftsmen, pencil pushers, the caterers, that collectively make our favorite movies and television shows possible. So often the below the line types toil near anonymously from project to project, but not on this podcast. Using the special feature, “Star Wars Within A Minute” as a guide, we go department by department to talk about the things small and large the contribute to your average Hollywood blockbuster. Whether you’re moved to sit through credits, study more about filmmaking, or perhaps look for a local project to get involved in, we hope you enjoy this podcast.

Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

We’ve seen Solo: A Star Wars Story and… really liked it! Maybe it was low expectations, maybe it’s just impossible to hate on Han, Chewie, and Lando dashing around the galaxy doing derring-do (although…), all we know is that we found ourselves grinning like idiots throughout huge chunks of this movie.  Maybe you will too? It’s hard to tell, I feel like I used to know what a Star Wars fan would like, but after the prequels and The Last Jedi, I just don’t know. The big takeaway is that we’re both back to being pretty excited to see what kind of storytelling can take place in this universe, which is something we were afraid wasn’t possible anymore.
