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)!

May 18, 2017

Show Notes:

Kevin, Chris, Dan, and John get together to discuss Luke Skywalker's future in The Last Jedi and beyond. We consider a compelling Dave Filoni quote from the Rebels season four panel from Star Wars Celebration Orlando (courtesy of the fantastic Steele Wars podcast) as well as an excerpt from Brian Jay Jones's George Lucas: A Life book for some support while exploring just who Luke could and should be in the sequel trilogy. Will he truly end the Jedi order? Is there any possibility of a dark side turn? Join us as we dig into anticipating the return of Star Wars's greatest hero!
