The Blockade Runner Podcast - June 16th, 2017 - Chris and John Argue the Merits of Rogue One

June 16, 2017

Show Notes:

Blockade Runner Chris is NOT a fan of Rogue One, and he's about the only huge Star Wars fan I know that feels that way, so we devoted this episode to digging into why he doesn't love the movie. We argue quite a bit, and listening back I realized that at times I fell into the trap of trying to convince someone to like something they just don't (not usually the best idea), but we also spend a lot of time analyzing the choices made by the Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm and I think it's a pretty compelling discussion. Plus, Chris and I have been having arguments like this for 20 years and we're going to keep having them for a long, long time to come. Enjoy (regardless of which side of the argument you come down on)!
