“The Rise of Skywalker” follows two very different films that preceded it. We got answers to so many questions, and it makes us look back and wonder: how does knowing the conclusion affect the events as presented in the previous movies?
On this episode, we discuss a wonky fan ranking of all the Star Wars movies to date. And by “wonky”, we mean it! One of the listings isn’t even a movie! It leads us to ponder where we’d rank each film, and what we now think of “The Force Awakens”.
Screen Rant says the sequel trilogy was rushed out and ruined Star Wars. We disagree. Kinda.
Wilkommen, Nerfherders! Are you enjoying our new theme music? Of course you are. The band who recorded it, Galactic Empire, is about to kick off a new tour. We get Dark Vader on the show to talk about hitting the road with Mac Sabbath, recording their upcoming album, and our main topic for this week: comparing “The Last Jedi” to its predecessor, “The Force Awakens”. Two very different movies, two very different approaches, two very different fan reactions. Which comes out on top? Well, that depends on how you approach the topic!
Allo, Nerfherders! As the Council gears up for a new The Last Jedi trailer on Monday night, we take a moment to look back on our favorite moments from the franchise so far. There are some sentimental favorites, some groundbreaking scenes, and no named characters were killed in the making of this episode.
Hello, fellow Herders! We had grand aspirations for this episode, we really did, but a particular YouTube video (deliberately not linked, so as not to drive any more traffic to it) was so inflammatory towards ‘The Force Awakens’ that we never got to our larger topic. We take on this behemoth of pessimistic clickbait willingly, so does it count as getting trolled??
So you think The Phantom Menace rips off A New Hope more than The Force Awakens? Well, you’re wrong! And we’ve already talked about that. It leads us to an article about a person’s first viewing of Episode 1, though, so let’s party like it’s 1999 and talk about that.
Happy Memorial Day, Americans! Sick of waiting for Episode VIII to answer all the questions raised by The Force Awakens? Well, wait no more! We dive into a few more of our favorite fan theories. Vader is Snoke! Your mom is Snoke! Ahsoka is Snoke!
