Star Wars 9: The Rise of Skywalker

IMDb

Rise of SkywalkerJoin Drew and me for yet another rollicking adventure with all your favorite characters from all the Star Wars movies–because THEY ARE ALL HERE. How? Visions, dreams, memories, ancient magic, cloning, holograms, borrowed footage, deleted scenes, computer trickery, or some combination of the above.

We praise… well… some things. C3P0 jokes? Daisy Ridley? I like it better than Drew–mainly because I don’t remember a lot of what happened in the previous movies that is being contradicted here, so I praise JJ Abrams, which–surprisingly even to me–is not sarcasm. We compare it to Force Awakens and Last Jedi and Harry Potter, and Marvel movies. And we write an ending that would allow for a kick-ass animated series.

Note: The effect I was trying to think of was the Kuleshov effect.

We’re watching on Blu-ray. Start right after the Lucasfilm logo on the countdown.

  1. Nice to have you back, only listened to the first part but seems good so far, aren’t the films made to be like old episodes of Flash Gordon so some parts you shouldn’t be able to follow, if you just randomly watched a random part of a show you probably wouldn’t know what was happening, more so if it was science fiction.

    Thanks again for doing some commentaries though.

  2. Hi Derek, not sure where else to find you, but I wanted to let you know that whitehouse.org is getting redirected (it seems pretty maliciously) as of a day or two ago. I am a huge fan of that site after recently discovering it and I didn’t know if you had stopped updating or if this was some sort of hack. Either way I figured I’d let you know. Thanks for everything here and on that site!
