Welcome to the 34th episode of The Leftover Popcorn Podcast! In this week’s episode we make our long overdue return to talk about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
As Leftover Popcorn returns, we won’t always be sticking to the kind of weekly posting schedule that we previously worked off, but with that comes good news. Not only will we continue to talk about everything we love (and occasionally dislike) from the world of cinema and TV, but we’ll also be branching off into wider pop culture from time to time too.
Co-hosts Adam McGee (that’s me) and Andrew Snyder are passionate and ravenous consumers of pop culture content in its various forms, and that will hopefully lead to an eclectic variety of discussions for your enjoyment over the coming months.
Anyway, that’s enough of an overview, let’s move on to what we have in store for you this week.
Warning: This podcast contains spoilers!
Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) – Rian Johnson
The latest chapter in the most talked about pop culture saga of its time arrived just before 2017 came to an end, and it left us with no shortage of things to talk about.
Rian Johnson’s film continued the famed Skywalker story by touching on the franchise’s storied past while also shaking things up significantly with his own array of bold decisions.
Better late than never, Andrew and I dive into talking about how the cinematic experience of Star Wars differs to most other films, the aspects we liked and disliked about The Last Jedi, what we see coming for Episode IX, and the prospect of Johnson’s original Star Wars trilogy.
We’ll be back soon to run through our Best of TV lists for 2017.
