A Canto Bight Conversation - The Blockade Runner Podcast - January 24th, 2018

January 24, 2018

In this week's Blockade Runner episode Ryan and John discuss the hotly debated Canto Bight sequence from The Last Jedi. Only we both really, really like it, so we're not so much debating as we are high-fiving each other about how punk rock it is! This conversation was actually part of last week's episode, but we split it out into it's own thing because we think the Canto Bight sequence deserves a little more love than it's getting.

Sacred Jedi Texts: The Last Jedi Art Of and Visual Dictionary Books - The Blockade Runner Podcast - January 15th, 2018

January 17, 2018

Join Ryan and John as we dive into The Art of The Last Jedi and The Last Jedi Visual Dictionary books on this latest episode of The Blockade Runner. We both love reading the Art Of and Visual Dictionary releases that accompany each new Star Wars movie so much, so we're excited to dedicate an entire episode to them. The Art Of discussion leans pretty far into analysis and gleaning what we can about The Last Jedi's production process from the book while the Visual Dictionary portion of the show is more focused on fun little details and lore. Authors Phil Szostak and Pablo Hidalgo have written two incredible Last Jedi resources that we think are essential to any Star Wars fan's own library of sacred texts, so whether you join us for this discussion or not, be sure to pick up and dig in to copies of both.

Chris’s Critical Take on The Last Jedi - The Blockade Runner Podcast - December 27th, 2017

December 27, 2017

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.

The Last Jedi IMMEDIATE Reactions - The Blockade Runner Podcast - December 14th, 2017

December 15, 2017

Show Notes:

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.
